Okay let’s get into the word!

Matthew Chapter 26

The plan to kill Jesus

Verse 1-5

The word says Jesus finished saying all things ( things he said in chapter 25) Then he said to the disciples;

As you know the passover feast is two days away. The son of man will be handed over to be nailed on the cross.

Then the chief priest met with the elders of the people. The met in the palace of Caiaphas, the high priest. They made plans to arrest Jesus in a clever way. They wanted to kill him. But not during the feast, they said ‘The people may stir up trouble.’

The Chief priest knew that once he messed with Jesus ,they were going to have trouble. But what we learned from the “Getting to Know Jesus Series”is that all these things must happen, to fulfill purpose.

A Woman pours perfume in Jesus

Verse 6-13

The word says; Jesus was in Bethany. He was in the home of a man named Simon, who had a skin disease. A woman came to Jesus with a special sealed jar of very expensive perfume. She poured the perfume on his head while he was at the table.

When the disciples saw what she had done the became angry, they asked her ‘ Why did you waste that? that could have made money and went to the poor people.’

Jesus was aware of this so he said;

Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. You will always have poor people with you, but you will not always have me! She poured purfume on my body to prepare me to be buried.

What I’m about to tell you is true. What she has done will be told any where this good news is preached, all over the world. It will be told in memory of her.

Everyone had their part this woman and her obedience. Her position and purpose was important she was to prepare Jesus body for his burial. I can imagine that she was like ‘Father are you sure you want it on his body? well Abba clear the way, it shall be done’ These are the times when we should be in position and not doubt. If she doubted the Father’s voice, she wouldn’t have prepared Jesus body for a proper burial.

Judas Agrees to hand Jesus over

Verse 15,16

The word says on of the twelve disciples went to the chief priest. His name was Juds Iscariot he asked; ‘What will you give me, if I hand Jesus over to you?’ They counted out 30 silver coins for him. From then on Judas watched for the right time to hand Jesus over to them.

Even Judas had to play his position this shows us that even if it is betrayal it has to be done. Judas betrayal unlocked Jesus next. and went his purpose was done, his life was complete.

The Lord’s Supper

Verse 17-30

The word says that it was the first day of the feast of unleavened bread. The disciples came to Jesus, they asked;

‘Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the passover meal?’

He replied.

Go into the city to a certain man. Tell him the teacher says ‘my time is near, I am going to celebrate the passover at your house with my disciples.’

The disciples did what Jesus had told them to do. They prepared the passover meal. when evening came Jesus was at the table with the twelve. while they were eating he said,

What I am about to tell you is true. One of you will hand me over to my enemies.

 

The disciples became very sad. One after the other they began to say to him. ‘It’s not I Lord, is it?

Jesus replied.

The one who has dipped his hands in the bowl with me, will hand me over. The son of man will go just as it is written about him. But how terrible it will be for the one who hands over the son of man! It would be better for him if he wasn’t born.

Judas was the one who was going to hand him over. He said, “it’s not I, Rabbi, is it?”

While they were eating Jesus took bread, He gave thanks and broke it. he handed it to his disciples and said,

Take this and eat it. This is my body”

Then he took the cup. He gave thanks and handed it to the. He said,

All of you drink from it, this is my blood of the new covenant. It is poured out to forgive the sins of many. Here is what I tell you. From now on, I won’t drink wine with you again until the day I drink it with you in my father’s kingdom.

Then they sang  hymn and went out to the mount of olives.

To know who will be the one who hands you over to your death and still break bread, and still offer communion my God. It takes discipline, the discipline that we ask Jesus to give us.

Taught a very important lesson that will have to do with our salvation to understand that in hi sacrifice he gives us apart of his to intake. he did it for us his blood was sacrificed for our sins and last here is communion.

Jesus says that peter will fall

verse 31-35

Jesus told them,

This very night you will all turn away because of me. It is written that the Lord says ‘I will strike the shepherd down’ then the sheep of the flock will be scattered. But after I rise from the dead, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.

Peter replied

“All the others may turn away because of you. But I never will.”

What I’m about to tell you is true. It will happen this very night. Before the rooster crows, you will say three times that you don’t know me.

But Peter said, “I may have to die with you, but I may never say I don’t know you” and all the other disciples said the same.

How many of us have said that we will never deny Jesus. How many of us are willing to profess our love for Jesus Christ. It’s when we are up against someone who is against God and someone willing to persecute you for loving Jesus that you will truly know what you would do. Are you willing to shout on the mountain top that he is Lord, without caring if someone called you a holy roller, or a church lady or Church man.

Jesus prays in Gethsemane 

Verse 36-46

The word says, Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane. He said to them.

Sit here while I go over there and pray

He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him. He began to be sad and troubled, then he said to them,

My soul is very sad, I feel close to death. Stay here, keep watch with me.

He went a little further, then fell with his face to the ground. he prayed

My Father, if it is possible take this cup of suffering away from me. But let what you want be done. not what I want.

Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping

Couldn’t you men watch with me for one hour?

He asked

Peter! watch and pray. Then you won’t fall in to sin, when you are tempted. The spirit is willing but the body is weak.

Jesus went away a second time. He prayed,

My father, if it is possible for this cup to be taken away? But if I must drink it, may what you want be done.

Jesus came back again and saw that the disciples were sleeping. They couldn’t keep their eyes open. He left them and went away once more, for the third time. He prayed the same thing. aathen he returned to the disciples. He said,

Are you still sleeping and resting? Look the hour is near. The son of man is about to be handed over to sinners. Get up! Let us go, here comes the one who is handing me over to them.

Sometimes we know what maybe ahead us but it can be so troubling that we may need to stay in God’s presence and continued prayer to build the strength. Those around us can’t comfort us, Jesus looked to his disciples to comfort him stay with him but they couldn’t stay awake. The Father was the only one who could comfort Jesus at that moment in his life.

Jesus is betrayed and arrested

Verse 47-55

The scripture says while Jesus was speaking Judas one of the twelve, arrived with a large crowd armed with swords and clubs. they were sent by the chief priest and elders of the people. The betrayer had arranged a signal with them; “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him” going at once to Jesus, Judas said “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed him. Jesus replied,

Friend, do what you came for.

The men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. With that, one of Jesus companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest cutting off his ear.

Put your sword back in it’s place, for all who drew the sword will die by the sword. Do you think I can not call on my father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then will the scriptures be fulfilled that say ‘it must in this way?

At that time Jesus said to the crowd,

am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me. Everyday I sat in the temple courts teaching and you didn’t arrest me. But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.

 

In all of this Jesus knew his purpose and was ready to confirm the word of the prophets. Are we ready to walk in the scriptures? Pray like Daniel? Faith like David? Jesus walked in the Scripture of the Son of man spoken by the prophets, to allow flesh to win at that moment wasn’t happening. Another thing to look at is when Jesus says ” you don’t think if I call my father he wouldn’t send more than twelve legion angels?” The next time your battling something expect God to send his legion angels if you should need it. It’s because of Jesus that we have that right. Lord Jesus I am truly in debt to you, you paid the ransom to free my soul. Hallelujah!!

Caiaphas Question Jesus

Verse 57-68

The scripture says when Jesus was arrested he was taken to Caiaphas. The high priest, teachers of the law and elders where gathered there. Peter followed at a distances right to the courtyard of the high priest. The word says he sat down with the guards to see what was going to happen.

The Chief priest and Sanhedrin were looking for some false allegations against Jesus. But they couldn’t find anything, they did have many false witnesses. Then finally two came forward saying Jesus said “He was able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.”

That’s when the high priest asked Jesus if he was going to answer the testimony that was against him. But Jesus remained silent. the high priest said to Jesus, “I charge you under oath by the living God; tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God?”

Yes, it is as you say

Jesus replied;

But I say to you; In the future you will see the son of man sitting at the right hand of the mighty on and coming on the clouds of heaven.

The high priest tore his clothes and said

“You have spoken blasphemy! why do we need any more witnesses? look now you have heard blasphemy, what do you think?”

“He is worthy of death” they answered. They began to spit in his face, and struck him with their fists, others slapped him and said, “Prophesy to us, Christ who hit you?”

When we are faced with hate, anger, frustration from others. yes the easiest thing to do, would be to attack back. Let’s remember the easiest thing usually comes from our flesh. It’s best to remain silent and not respond. saying yes to God and your eternity. sitting with Jesus and brringing others with us is our goal.

At times some will have to endure more pain than others, but it is their faithfulness to the Father that allowed them to stand strong, As Jesus did.

Peter denies knowing Jesus

Verse 69-75

The word says peter was still in the courtyard and a servant girl came up to him and said. “You also was with Jesus of Galilee!” but he denied it in front of everyone. “I don’t know what your talking about.” peter replied back, then he went out to the gateway, where another girl saw him and said to the people there. “This fellow was with Jesus of Nazareth!”  he denied it again, with an oath “I don’t know the man!” After a while the people standing around peter said “Surely, you are one of them, yout r accent gives you away.” Then he began to  call down curses on himself and he swore to them. “I don’t know that man!” Immediately the rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the words Jesus had spoken,

Before the rooster crows,you will disown me three times.

he went outside and wept.

Even Peter had to fulfill his part. Another reminder that God confirms the word of his servant.

I remember as a young christian who hadn’t really understood scripture yet, this part made me so angry with Peter. But now that I’m older I am realizing that may have been the hardest thing. Knowing what they were putting Jesus through and then to have a selfish war with your flesh and your flesh wins. at this very moment Peter Loved himself more than he Loved God. Fearing losing his life and being tortured he decided to deny Jesus. In that the scripture was fulfilled Jesus word was confirmed. and Peters life was preserved for the next, the things that was still left to do.

Isaiah Chapter 14

Blessings everyone,

Let’s get into the word of God

Isaiah Chapter 14

Verses 1-23

The Lord told Isaiah that the Lord will have compassion for the Isrealites. They will take on foreigners and be given their own land and will hold their captors captive, they will rule over their oppressors.

The Babylonian King believed that he was bigger than God and so God will break his staff and sweep away their land.

As I read this word I thought about how our spirits can be held captive by people who want us to believe what they say about us.

They are holding our purpose captive. When we are still in God we wait patiently for God to break us free.

When he does he puts us in a position where we are great in his Glory, he loose are tongue for hos Glory.

Those who held our purpose captive then become captive by the works of our purpose

Verse 24- 27

Isaiah attached the prophecy to what had already been fulfilled on the Assyrians. This was most likely done to remind Israel when the God of host says something, than it is so.

Reminding Israel that Babylon will fall and be trampled as Assyria had. Nothing and no one can stop or change that.

Gods word has always stood firm, one thing for sure is when he says something it sure enough is coming.

He may show a sign, He may comeover you while reading a Scripture. He may even whisper it to you.

You’ll get a chill over your body that, some will get a peace in their soul and others willhave a visitation by the Holy Spirit.

However you get that message know that His word is unchanging.

Verse 28- 32

The third section is Judgement on Philistine.

The Lord sends a message through the Oracle (Prophet) that He will rise his people up from under them. And it will be the Philistine that will suffer.

The Lord will bring famine and the remainder (survivors) will be put to death.

Does the words “May God have mercy on your soul”

How about “First will be last, and last will be first.”

Let’s look at it as instructions on leading a righteous lifestyle.

We must be careful how we treat others, especially those less fortunate then ourselves. We must becareful who we give the Glory for our blessings, teachings, or testimonies.

We Can not place ourselves higher than the throne of God (self pride)

Be Blessed

Isaiah chapter 13

Verses 1-6

The Prophet Isaiah begins to tell the people the sad news that there will be a day whe a signal will come from the mountains.

And God will send his consecrated ones and his great warriors to battle to execute His anger. They well come from the end of Heaven to destroy the whole land.

The mighty wrath of God. One thing we learn from the Bible is that it’s not when one person is doing wrong, it’s when a people is doing wrong collectively.

When we learned in Genius that God created Adam to be fruitful and multiply the multiplication would be Accountability partners.

Jesus confirms it when He said one of the important commands is to Love your neighbor as God loves you.

If a people is doing wrong (Sodom) and then He WILL cast judgement upon them.

Uses his oracle Isaiah to warn yhe people. Who says God won’t give his people a chance to correct their actions?

Verse 6-16

Isaiah warns the people that the day will come when they will wail. This is when God WILL exterminate the sinners.

When the stars will not shine and the sun will be dark, the moon will give no light.

God says He will put an end to arrogance, and men will be rare as fine Gold. God says he will make the heavens tremble, and shake the earth from it’s place.

The word arrogance stud out in tgis reading for me. ( it could because I was listening to the song give God the Glory)

We live in the day where we rarely hear the words Thank you Jesus! Glory to God! For his Glory!

Arrogance is strong in this day as believers we are on this earth to shine God’s light, to teach and share testimony about the power of God’s grace and mercy. Introduce prayer life, walk like Jesus did.

Verse 17-22

These verses tell us that God used the Medes because they jad No care for silver or Gold, they couldn’t be bought.

And the went forth to destroy in tue name of God.

Isaiah told the people that the Lord says it would be like Sodom and Gamorrah.

Gods wrath is as strong as his love. We have to decide what end to be on, and what end we would be willing to help are neighbor be on.

This walk is about our faith in God, the confirmation of His word, and teaching what we have learned.

Be Blessed

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are moving in your purpose and following Gods instructions.

If your too fast your ahead of it, if your too slow you’ll miss it.It’s important that we let God do his thing, no need to have control of things you don’t own the rights to control.

Let’s get into the word

Chapter 11

Verse 1- 10

Isaiah starts off the chapter with the coming of the messiah, stemming from the bloodline of Jesse, Davids father. Isaiah says the spirit of the Lord will rest on him. He will have wisdom and understanding, He will have the spirit of counseling and strength, knowledge and fear of the Lord.

He will not judge by what he see’s or what he hears. His words will slay the wicked, he will walk in righteousness. Nations will make supplication to him.

After reading the verse my question was, are we willing to let God tell us about a person. We read all the things that God said about Jesus to Isaiah. I began to wonder what is God saying about me to the people that I encounter.

No matter what we are going through if we see through the eyes of Christ, we will be walking with our belt of righteousness, and with the spirit of the Lord resting on us.

I don’t know about you, but I know that I would like to know that the Lord is saying “that is my faithful servant Wilhelmina, she is a righteous walker out to please me”  Because I would like the Heavenly Father tor say those things about me, I make sure that I am parallel to those ways. am I perfect by far but I know who to go toe in my weakness.

There is a Jonathan Mcreynalds song about not coming down from the Glory of God for anyone or anything.

That was how Jesus walked, being pleasing to the Father, showing us how to be pleasing, and how we should live.

Verse 11-16

These last verses takes us into the remnant, the remnant walked in righteousness by faith. During a time of war, hate, and destruction God made a way for them to get where the needed to go.

As believers we walk our journey knowing there is a reason for every season. It’s not the environment, it’s the spirit that we are walking in, If we are walking as Jesus walked. We are the remnant of Jesus! It’s time to walk in with the spirit of God resting on you

Be Blessed

If you are ready to start your journey and don’t know where to start,turn your bible, google or download the youversion free bible app to Romans 10:9 believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord and God raised him from the dead on the 3rd day Welcome Him into your heart and ask him to restore your soul. get in to word study you can begin with reading Isaiah chapter 11, find yourself a bible  based church and fellowship with like minded beievers

Isaiah Chapter 10

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

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

Chapter 10

reflections of verse 1-4

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Verse 5-19

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

verse 20-34

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

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

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

In this chapter….

We find three things to add to our faith journey

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

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

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

Amen

Isaiah Chapter 9

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

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

Isaiah Chapter 8

logo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

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

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

To the followers of this blog, welcome, Thank you for your support, likes and comments. If you just so happen to be scrolling and stumbled upon this blog, Welcome! thanks for joining in.

Lets get into the word!

Isaiah Chapter 8

Verse 1-10 Isaiah and his children as signs

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

verse 11-22

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 7

Blessings everyone,

It’s been a while, right? Thanks for hanging in there. To God be the Glory we have walked in Faith and have relocated to Myrtle Beach S.C. can I tell you that when you walk in faith you Will find your smile.

I have walked with my head down and my heart on God, can I tell you, that when you are able to look up and see Gods work and Gods love, you will get to feel a wholeness with your spirit.

I do believe that my time with my head down and my heart on God allowed him to come in and fix the places that needed to be fixed and then I longed to look up.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. What new-journey-in-praise-flyerI do is allow God to use my mouth and hands for his will and walk by faith. Some of the ways that I serve God is here on this blog, I am the founder of Journey in Praise ministry and lead intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint Blog. I also serve on the leader board for Walk it Out Ministries. You can follow me of Faceboo, Twitter, Instagram, and periscope @WilhelminaLundy.

you can Email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com for prayer request, study questions or others.

Lets get into the word

The miraculous signs of Immanuel

verse 1-9

The word says Rezin and Pekah the kings of Aram and Israel, went to fight against Jerusalem, but they couldn’t over power it.

The royal family of Ahaz the king of Judah  was told ” The army of Aram has joined forces with Ephraim army.” Ahaz and his people were scared. The word says they trembled like trees in the forest when the wind blows.

Isaiah says the Lord said to him “Go out to see Ahaz, take your son Shear- Joshub with you. Meet Ahaz at the end of the channel that brings water from the upper pool. It is on the road to the washer man’s field. Tell Ahaz, be careful. Stay calm, Do not be afraid, Do not lose hope because of the burning anger of Rezin, Arom and the son of Remaliah.

After all, they are nothing but  a couple of pieces of smoking firewood. Aram, Ephraim and Remaliah’s son have planned to destroy you. They said let’s march into Judah and attack, lets tear everything down. Then we could share the land among ourselves, and we can make Tabeel’s son king over it”

The Lord says to Isaiah “But I am Lord and king. I said that will not happen it will not take place. The capital of Aram is Damascus and the ruler of Damascus is only Rezin. don’t worry about the people of Ephraim, they will be to crushed to be considered a people.

That will happen before 65 years are over the capital of Ephraim is Samaria and the ruler of Samaria is only Remaliahs son. If you don’t stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.

In faith we know that God’s word is confirmed, life brings fear to us and we don’t want to face the winds and the shaking trees but in these verses we learn that God says; don’t fear and don’t allow a negative distraction  to intimidate us, our main focus is to make sure we stand in faith, and stand firm.

Verse 10-25

The word says the Lord spoke to Ahaz through Isaiah saying; I am the lord your God, ask me to give you a miraculous sign. He can be anything in the deepest grave or in the highest heaven.

Ahaz answered saying he won’t ask, he won’t test God.

Then Isaiah said, listen members of Ahaz  family isn’t it enough to test man’s patience? are you going to test the patience of God? The Lord will give you a miraculous sign. The virgin is going to have a baby. She will have a son and he will be called Immanuel.

Their will be a time we will have to decide what is wrong and what is right. He will only have butter and honey to eat. But even before that the land of the two kings you are afraid of will be completely destroyed.

The Lord will bring the king Assyria against you and He will bring him against your people and the whole royal family. It will be a time of trouble unlike any since the people of Ephriam broke away from Judah.

The word says at that time the Lord will call for the Egyptians and they will come like flies from streams of Egypt. He will call for the Assyrians, they will come like bees. They will all come and camp in deep valleys, caves and water holes.

Isaiah tells Ahaz at this time the Lord will us the Assyrians to punish you. Ahaz had hired them earlier. Now their king will be like a razor in the Lord’s hand, he will shave the hair from your head and legs. He will also shave off your beards.

A man will only be able to keep one young cow and two goats alive. But they will give enough milk and butter to live on. All those who is left will have only butter and honey to eat.

The land that once had 1000 vines worth 25 lbs of silver will be covered with horns and bushes. all the hills that used to be plowed with hoes. But you wont go there because you are afraid of thorns  and bushes. Cattle will be turned loose on those hills and sheep will run there.

I read the last verse a couple of times, I was reminded that our fears and lack of faith will be the reason we miss out on the things that God released for you.

The word says “the land that once had vines worth 25 lbs of silver will be covered with thorns and bushes”  because you were afraid you didn’t go and do the work by removing those thorns and bushes you missed out. 

you missed out not only on the land, but in that place cattle and sheep will be loose. 

Fear of trials stop us and then we miss the blessing from God. You didn’t go and test your faith in God, because it was dark, because you didn’t see a way out, because you thought it was a dead end, because you were scared you would fail. The blessing still hit the land, you just wasn’t in position.

Fear of invaders will stop you from going in the places you will need to go, to tend to the things that you will need to tend to in order to have the harvest that you would like to see. The thing we don’t want to talk about, is when the blessing hit and you aren’t kin position, someone else will test their faith in God and stumble upon the land which the courage to fight the invaders and they will live will, because they were willing to trust God.

 

If you are tired of being afraid of thorns and bushes in your life and you want God to show you a miraculous sign, open your heart and welcome Him in. Turn your bible, download a free bible app or google Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Start building your relationship by reading today’s chapter let God show you how to cut down those thorns. Find new ways to let him show you signs. Get yourself into a sound doctrine bible based church and a christian family to fellow ship with.

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 6

Blessings Everyone,

As we walk a righteous walk, it’s important that we allow the spirit of the Lord to come in and order our steps.

We say Holy Spirit you are welcime here. And then we walk testing our faith in God and praising Him for what we know he will do.

To the followers, Thank you for your support and the likes and shares of the word of the Lord.

If You happen to be scrolling and stumbled on this blog welcome!!

Thanks for joining in, if you are led please be sure to follow and like to be sure that you are getting new blogs.

Let me introduce myself, my name is

Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. If You are looking for some of my services you can go to the about section and get it along with contact info.

Let’s get to the Word

Isaiah Chapter 6

Verse 1-16

Isaiah says the year that the King Uzziah died he saw the Lord seated on his throne, his robe was so long it filled the temple and he was highly honored.

Above him was Seraphs each of them had 6 wilngs 2 covered their faces, 2covered their feet, and they flew with 2. They were calling out to each other saying “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord who rules over all the whole earth is full of glory.”

Isaiah says their voices were so strong it caused the stone door frame to shake and the temples were full of smoke.

Isaiah cried out, How terrible it is for me! I’m about to be destroyed! My mouth speaks sinful words, and I live among people who speaks sinful words.

Now I have seen the King with my own eyes, He is Lord who rules over all.

A Seraph flew over to Isaiah holding hot coal with a tong. He touched Idaiahs mouth with the hot coal and said.

“This has touched your lips, your guilt has been taken away, your sin has been paid for.”

Isaiah says then he heard the voice of the Lord say; ” who will I send? Who will go for us?

And Isaiah answered;

“Here I am, send me”

The Lord told Isaiah to go and speak to the people and tell them

‘ you will hear but never understand. You will see but never know what you are seeing;

Make the hearts of these people stubborn.

Plug up their ears, close their eyes.

Otherwise the might see with their eyes,

They might hear with their ears, they might understand with their hearts and they might turn to me and be healed’

Then Isaiah said “Lord, how long will it be like that?”

The Lord answered it will be like that until the cities of Israel are destroyed.

And no one is living in them it will last until the houses are deserted.

It will last until I have sent everyone far away, the land will be totally deserted.

Even is a tenth of the people remain there, the land will be completely destroyed again.

But when oak trees and Terebinth Trees are cut down, stumps are left.

And my people will be like stumps that begin grow again.

Let me start with the definition os Seraphs- an angelic being regarded in traditional Christian angelology as belonging to the highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy, associated with light, after, and purity.

The verses above tells my spirit that guilt of our imperfection have already been dealt with.

God has already forgiven and gone to the next thing. When we find ourselves feeling convicted and riddled with guilt for our actions, and the way we use our tongues we go into hiding from God.

I like to call it the Adam and Eve syndrome. When Adam ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, The Father walke d through the garden looking for him and he was hiding.

That’s kind of what we do, yet when we face God here comes a solution.

Adam was naked, after admitting his wrongs he was clothed.

Isaiah wasn’t right with his mouth, after admitting he was healed, and his mouth was used for God’s purpose.

There’s the consistency that we look for in our confirmation from the word of God.

If your holding on to your wrongs and not letting God deal with it then your going to be stuck.

You won’t be able to move in purpose.

If you are looking to move in your purpose and want to establish your foundation on faith, turn your Bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord and God raised him from the dead according to the scriptures, you shall be saved.

I pray that you find your self a Bible based sound doctrine church and amazing fellowship, as You build your foundation on faith.

Isaiah Chapter 5

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are moving in God’s will for us.

I have been missing in action but I’m never too far and never but for so long.

This time I thought “well maybe the assignment is over” but God said no it hasn’t even began.

With that being said let’s get started.

To the followers; thank you for your support and your like and shares. You all have been a push in getting God’s word out there.

If you enjoyed this study and happen to have stumbled on this blog by scrolling,Welcome. If you are led please like, follow and share.

Some of the ways that I serve God can be found in the about section. I use to put the intro in every Blog but with us moving in year 3 there are some changes. What you can find there is ( mininstries, prayer, social medias and email)

Let’s get to the word

Isaiah Chapter 5

The song of the vineyard

Verse 1-7

I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard on a fertile hillside.

He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines.

He built a tower in it’s midst and also made a winepress in it.

So he expected it to bring forth good grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes.

And now people of Jerusalem and Judah; Judge between me and my vineyard.

What more could have been done for my vineyard, than I have done for it.

When I wanted good grapes why did it bring me wilds grapes.

Now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard.

I will take away it’s hedge and it will be destroyed. I will breakdown it’s walls and it will be trampled.

I will make it a waste land, neither pruned nor cultivated and briers and thorns will grow there.

I will command the clouds not to rain on it.

The vineyard of the Lord is the nation of Israel. And the people of Judah are the vines he delighted in.

And he looked for justice but saw bloodshed for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

The Lord clears and strategically places us, giving us free will and then we start to break the laws just for self pleasure.

We become bad grapes. Imagine planting your grapes happy and waiting with expectation and your grapes come out all rotten and some are just not growing.

You have to figure how to get rid of all that bad fruit.

The Lord says I’m going to make sure to dry that land out. No cultivating, why?

To start over

Woes and Judgement

Verse 8 -17

Misery to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left, and you live alone in the land.

The Lord has declared to Isaiah

Surely the great houses will become worthless, empty the fine mansions left without occupants.

The vineyard will produce only 6 gallon of wine 360 pounds of seeds will only yield 36 pounds of grains.

Misery to those who rise early in the morning to get drunk.

Who stay up at night until they are inflamed with wine.

They have harps and lures at there banquet, piper, timbrets and wine; but have no regards for the deeds of the Lord.

No respect for thw work of his hands, there for my people will go in exile for lack of understanding.

Those of high rank will die of hunger and common people will be parched with thirst.

There for death expands it’s jaws opening wide it’s mouth;

Into it will descend their nobles and masses with all their brawlers and revelers

So people will be brought low and everyone humbled.

The eyes of arrogant, humbled,

But the Lord Almighty will be exalted by his justice and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts.

Then sheep will graze as in their own pastire lambs will eat among the ruins of the rich.

This word is solid, the Lord is saying if you are one person and you want to buy all the houses and fields you can.

Expect your fields and house to be empty, we can’t be greedy glutiny does not reside in the spirit of God.

We can not be ready to take all and not concern ourselves about the concerns of others.

Strangers will come in and prosper well with your scraps, leftovers. Your ruin.

Verse 18-30

Misery to those who bring sin, with lies, and sneakyness; and wickedness like you pulling it with a cart.

To the ones who wants God to hurry so they can see his work, so they can see it.

The plan of the holy one of Israel let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Misery to the ones who are hero’s of drinking wine and champions of mixing drinks, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent.

Therefore as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so there roots decay.

And their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the lord Almighty and spurned the word of the holy one of Israel.

Therefore the Lord’s anger burns against his people; his hand is raised and he strikes them down.

The mountains shake; and the dead bodies are like refuge in the streets.

He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the earth.

Here they come, swiftly and speedily! Notvone of them grows tired or stumbles, not one slumbers or sleep;

Not a sandal sharp, all their arrows are sharp. All their bows are strung; their horses hooves seem like flint, their chariot wheels like a whirlwind.

Their roar like lions; they growl has they seize Their prey and carry it off with no one to rescue.

In that day they will roar over it like roaring of the sea.

And if one looks at the land, there is only darkness and distress even the sun will be darkened by clouds.

If we are going through life looking for our next drink, and living for our next drink we are searching for something missing. If we sit and listen our thirst will be quenched.

Blessings now for the important part.

If You are in need of some answers, it starts with a relationship with God our Lord and savior. Turn your bible to Roman 10:9 and cofess and believe with your mouth and heart, Jesus is Lord, he died for our sins and was raised from the did according to the Scripture. You shall be saved.

Be Blessed
