The Journey In praise ministry which is three parts the blog serves as a word of the day, The Podcast serves as a word of encouragement, and broadcast serves as sharing of building a foundation of faith like bricks through the study of christian books.

1 Samuel Chapter 5

1-samuel-1024x576the Ark in Ashdod and Ekron

verse 1 -5

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

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

verse 6 – 12

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

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

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

Ezekiel Chapter 27images

verse 1-8

The Lord tells Ezekiel to grieve for Tyre, the Lord says that Tyre was beautifully made with the best of materials to build up the land.

verse 9 – 11

The Lord says that sailors came to trade merchandise there. the solders of the army consisted of men from Persia, Lydia, and Put. they hung their helmets and shields on the wall bringing a very nice view. Men from Arvad, Helech, and Gammad were in your towers.

verse 12 – 23

Tarnish traded ,silver, iron, tin and lead. Greece, Tubal, Meshech traded slaves and bronze. Togarmah traded horses. Rhodes and coastlands traded ivory, tusks and ebony. Aram traded turquoise, purple fabric, embroidered work, fine linen, coral, and rubies for merchandise. Judah and Israel traded wheat and confections, honey, oil and balm. Damascus traded wine and wool.Danites, Greeks, Kilmad traded wrought iron, cassia and calamus.Dean traded saddle blankets. Arabia traded lambs, rams,goats. Sheba, Raamah traded spices and stone, and gold. Haran, Canneh and Eden, Sheba, Asshur and Kilmad traded garments and fabric.

verse 25 – 36

The Lord says the ships of Tarshish are the carriers of the wares and they will sink with the soldiers and everyone and thing on it in the heart of the sea.tyre

The soldiers that were at shore mourned and grieved the lost of Tyre and all the wealth and merchandise that sank with her.

These verses I learned that Tyre is  small island that sold merchandise surrounded by water. When the Lord released his wrath on Tyre for taking advantage of Jerusalem when she was down, he caused the sea to swallow tyre and everything that the people boasted about. Those that put everything they had in to Tyre grieved the lost. The lessons in the study is when we are successful at something we need to give God the Glory not they thing we are successful ate it is because of God that we are able to do them and end up successful at them.

Now for the Important part if you are looking for salvation and would like to open your life to God. Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and died on the cross for our sins and God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. get in to the word and start to fellowship with Sovereign Lord allow him to change it around for your good.

Be Blessed

Ezekiel Chapter 23 Two adulterous sisters

In this chapter the Lord tells the story of Samaria and Jerusalem and how we get to their destruction.

full chapter

the Lord tells Ezekiel that there were two daughters of the same mother. They became prostitutes The older sisters name was Oholah and her sister was Oholibah. In this story Oholah represents Samaria and Oholibah Represents Jerusalem. The Lord says to Ezekiel that Oholah engaged in prostitution while she was still his,she lusted after her lovers Assyrian warriors. She gave herself to the elite of the Assyrians and defiled herself with all the idols of everyone she lusted after.

The Lord says therefore I handed her over to her lovers and the stripped her naked and took away her sons and daughters, and killed her with the sword. she became an example among women

The Lord said her sister Oholibah saw what happened to Oholah yet she went down the road of prostitution. She was more corrupt than her sister. Oholibah also lusted after Assyrians elite and the Lord said that he saw her defile herself; both of them went the same way.

The Lord said that Oholibah took it even further she saw Babylonians and began to lust after them. She sent a messenger to them in Chaldea and they came to her, to her bed of love and in their lust they defiled her. The Lord says after she had been defiled she turned from them in disgust. The Lord says he turned from her in disgust, just as he had turned from her sister. And still she became more and more promiscuous thinking about the day she was a prostitute in her younger days in Egypt.

The Lord says that he will stir up her lovers against her. The Lord says that it will be his anger and they will punish her. He will put a stop to her lewd behavior and prostitution that had began in Egypt. you will not look to these things anymore he said.

The Lord says to Oholibah (Jerusalem) I am about to hand you over to the ones you hate those that you turned from in disgust. They will deal with you in hatred and take everything that you worked for. Because you have lusted after the nations and defiled yourself with their idols. you have gone the way of your sister so i put her cup in your hand.

The Lord declares to Jerusalem that destruction and sorrow will come her way just has it came for Samaria, and Jerusalem will suffer every drop

The Lord asks Ezekiel to Judge Oholah and Oholibah for committing Adultery with their Idols and for defiling his sanctuary, for sacrificing his children to the Idols. The Lord says that Jerusalem invited men from far aways and enticed them prepared for them and offered up incense and oils that belong to him.

The Lord said a mob will come against her and cause destruction this will put down and end the lewdness and prostitution.

In this chapter the Lord has Ezekiel tell the people of Jerusalem why they are being handed over. In the story of the two sisters the Lord shows how they gave them selves up without any concern for him. Forming alliances with godless nations, and being lewd by desire to have things. We must be careful, I always wondered where the term ” I serve a Jealous God” comes from. In this chapter we see his Jealousy, we see haow upset he is. He loves us so much and angers when we put things desires before him. The christian walk can be a hard thing to do. We must remember he is our provider and our strength. we must be ready to put our faith in him and not try to control with our desires remember the enemy lures through desires. be ready to rebuke the enemies entice of desires, and call him out. At that moment God will show up. God Bless You

Now for the Important part, Google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get in to the word and allow God to reveal himself, start a relationship with the one who will never leave you. who wants to love and provide for your every need.

Ezekiel Chapter 19

A lament for Israel’s Princes

verse 1 – 14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ezekiel Chapter 18

Happy Monday Everyone,

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

For those who do not know my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve the Lord is through this bible study blog. This is where I come to you guys with the word of the Lord so that we can spend sometime with God. Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,  a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written, the righteous will live by faith.

Ezekiel chapter 18

The soul who sins will die

verse 1 -3 

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

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

verse 5-9

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

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

verse 10-13

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

verse 14 – 17

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

Verse 18 -20

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

verse 21 – 24

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

Verse 25- 32

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

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

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

Ezekiel  chapter 17 The eagles and a vine

verse 1-6

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

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

verse 7 – 10

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

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

verse 11 -15

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

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

verse 16- 24

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

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

Praise God! Thank you for joining in to the bible study. Now for the Important part, If you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe with heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved.Began a wonderful relationship with the Sovereign God and allow him to do great things in your life.

Okay let’s get in to the word!

Ezekiel Chapter 14 Idolaters condemned

verse 1-6

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

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

verse 7 – 11

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

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

verse 12-20

Judgment Inescapable

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

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

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

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

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

verse 21 – 23

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

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

Now for the Important part, If you are looking to begin your relationship with the sovereign it starts with your salvation. google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your mouth, that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get on your knees and talk to God allow him to fill your cracks with putty and wash you clean. Hallelujah! have an amazing day God bless you

Ezekiel Chapter 13 false prophets condemned

verse 1-7

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

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

verse 8- 12

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

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

verse 13 – 16

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

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

verse 17 – 19

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

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

verse 20 -23

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

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

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

Ezekiel Chapter 12

Good Morning,

I pray that you all are doing well in God, and that he is physically showing you that he is the living God. we are in the twelfth chapter on Ezekiel and God has been teaching. In Ezekiel we are learning that God will show us exactly what he wants from us, how he wants to executed. It won’t necessarily be the greatest thing, sometimes it can be prophesying against the ugly, against our love ones. what we must learn is that it’s our faith that pushes us to be Godobedient.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of the Almighty, the ways that I serve the Sovereign God is through this bible study blog, also the Journey in praise blog and broadcast. you can find me on periscope at @WilhelminaLundy or on the Facebook and YouTube  at @journeyinpraise.

Ezekiel Chapter 12

The Exile symbolized

verse 1 -6

Ezekiel says, that the word of the Lord came to him and said; Son of man, you are living among rebellious people. They have eyes to see but do not see, and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are rebellious people. Therefore son of man, pack your belongings for exile and in the daytime. As they watch, set out and go from where you are to another place. perhaps they will understand, though they are a rebellious house. The Lord tells Ezekiel that in the day time while they watch take out his belongings packed for exile and dig through the wall and take his belongings through it. the Lord tells Ezekiel to put them on his shoulder and carry them out while they watch, at dusk. He tells him to cover his face so that he wont see the land, the Lord says that he has made Ezekiel a sign to the house o Israel.

When God is ready he will take us out of the place that he is ready to move us from, and he will  make us a sign for someone else. He uses us to teach and to warn. remember in the first chapter when we learned that he wants us to speak the warnings and if they listen they will be saved if they don’t listen they will die and if we don’t speak the warning the blood is on our hands. If Ezekiel doesn’t follow instructions, he will have to deal with what is meant for the house of Israel. when we don’t move yes it will go left real quick.

verse 7 – 11

Ezekiel says he did as told, during the day he brought his things packed for exile. he says then in the evening he dug through the wall with his hands. He took his belonging out at dusk, carrying them on his shoulder while they watched. In the morning the Lord asked Ezekiel if anyone of the house of Israel ask him what he was doing. the Lord tells Ezekiel to say to them, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: This oracle concerns the prince in Jerusalem and the whole house of Israel who are there. say to them I am a sign to you. As I have done , so it will be done to them. they will go into exile as captives.

when we are carrying our burdens, and preparing to learn our lessons as christians we sometimes will go through our troubles in front of others. Ezekiel was showing the house of Israel what they will be going through and they still didn’t bother to concern themselves with what he was doing. We sometimes go through thing in front of others as a warning to the person who really needs the message, to show them how to deal with what’s to come or prepare for what’s to come. a rebellious person is going to mock before they ask questions out of concern. Glory to God.

verse 12 – 16

The rest of the Lords message was that, the prince among them will put his things on his shoulder at dusk and leave , a hole will be dug in the wall for him to go through. He will cover his face so that he cannot see the land. I will spread my net for him and he will be caught in my snare; I will bring him to Babylonia ,the land if the Chaldeans, but he will not see it, and there he will die. I will scatter to the winds all those around him – his staff and all his troops – and I will pursue them with drawn sword. They will know that I am lord, when I disperse them and scatter them among the countries. but I will spare a few of them from the sword, famine, and plague, so that in the nations where they go they will acknowledge all their detestable practices. Then they will know that I am Lord.

Some he will spare so that they can give testimony and say bless the Lord.

verse 17 – 20

Ezekiel says, the Lord says son of man, tremble as you eat your food, and shudder in fear as you drink your water. say to the people of the land. This is what the sovereign Lord says about those living in Jerusalem and in the land of Israel: They will eat their food in Anxiety and drink their water in despair, for their land will be stripped of everything in it because of the violence of all who live in there. The inhabited towns will be laid waste and the land will be desolate. Then you will know I am Lord.

I just want to say, when we have built a relationship with God, and take on our assignment. our walk and actions will be those of what God wants to teach. How can we teach faith if we don’t walk in it? How can we give warnings, if we haven’t gone through it. Ezekiel had to show exactly what was coming. The Lord will show ,and then it will come. If you know him you will be prepared, if you don’t then you’re going to be caught off guard.

verse 21 – 29

Ezekiel says, that the word of the Lord came to him: Son of man what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel:The days go by and visions come to nothing? say to them This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel. say to them, the days are near when every vision will be fulfilled. For there will be no more false visions or flattering divinations among the people of Israel. But the Lord will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days, you rebellious house, I will fulfill whatever I say, declares the sovereign Lord.

Ezekiel says the word of the Lord came to him Son of man, the house of Israel is saying , The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about distant future. Therefore say to them, this is what the sovereign Lord says: None of my words will be delayed any longer whatever I say will be fulfilled declares the sovereign Lord.

The Job of a prophet can be hard, I am learning that in this chapter. yes as a prophet you take on the pain of others, the struggle, the ache, the famine. as I was writing this blog I realized the lesson was more deep than the Exile of the house of Israel I realized it was a lesson for those that call themselves prophets of those who God has called to be prophets but have not stepped in to the prophetic I suggest you build a strong foundation in faith is that’s where you are going. as a prophet you take on every battle physically that’s what this chapter tells us. Please don’t fear that, because her’s something that we learn also is that you will also stay in the presence of the Lord.

Now for the Important Part, If you are looking for Salvation. google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved, stay in your bible study the word and allow God to reveal himself to you. God Bless you

Ezekiel Chapter 10

Glory departs from the Temple

verse 1-5

Ezekiel says that he looked and saw the likeness of a throne made of sapphire that was above the expanse, which were over the head of the cherubim. He says the Lord said to the man clothed in linen, to Go in the wheels under the cherubim , fill your hands with burning coals from among the cherubim. and scatter them over the city. Ezekiel says that as he watched the man in linen went in.

Ezekiel explans when the man in linen went in the cherubim was standing on the south side of the temple. a cloud filled the inner court. Then the Glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of temple, The cloud filled the temple and the court was filled with radiance of the Glory of the Lord. Ezekiel explains that the sound of the wings of the cherubims could be hears as far as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.

verse 6-14

Ezekiel tells us when the Lord commanded the man in linen to take fire from the cherubim, the man went in and stood beside a wheel. Then one of the cherubim reached out his hand toward the fire. he took some of it and put it in the hands of the man in linen, Ezekiel said then the man took it and went out. ( Under the wings of the cherubim was what looked like the hands of a man) Ezekiel says he saw beside the cherubim four wheels, one beside each of the cherubim; the wheels sparkled like chrysolite.

wp-1468371924788.jpg The four of them looked alike; each was like a wheel intersecting a wheel. As they moved they would go in any one of the four that the cherubim faced, the wheels did not turn about. The cherubim went in what ever direction the head faced; their entire bodies including their backs, hands, wings were full of eyes, and so were the wheels. Ezekiel says he heard the wheels being called the whirling wheels. The cherubim had four faces one of a cherub, one of a man, one of a lion and one of an eagle.

verse 15-20

Ezekiel tells us that the Cherubim rose upward. These were the living creatures that he  had seen by the Kebar River. When the Cherubim moved the wheels beside them moved; and when the cherubim spread their wings to rise from the ground, the wheels did not leave their sides. when the cherubim stood still the wheels stood still. when the cherubim rose they rose with them. because the spirit of the living creature was in them.20121120-161130

Ezekiel says then the Glory of the Lord departed from the threshold of the temple and stopped above the cherubim. While Ezekiel watched the cherubim spread there wings and rose from the ground, as they went the wheels went with them as they stopped at the entrance to the east gate of the Lords house, and the Glory of God of Israel was above them.

The living creatures that Ezekiel saw at the kebar river he had realized was cherubim.ezekiel-chapter-1

This chapter is built on information and that’s why I didn’t interrupt I pray that you received some answers about what a cherubim looks like from this chapter
