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.

1 Samuel Chapter 4

The Pallestines capture the Ark

verse 1 -4

Here we learn that Iraelites and Philistines went to war. In this war the Philistines killed about four thousand of them on the battlefield.when the Israelites went back the elders asked them why did the Lord bring defeat upon them? They decided to bring the Ark from shiloh and Eli’s sons Hophni and Phinehas came along with the Ark.

verse 5 – 10

This verse tells us that when the Ark was brought in to the camp irael let out a shout so big that the ground shock, When the Phlistines heared the sound they wondered what was going on in the camp of the Israelites. When they found out that the Ark of the Lord was brought in they began fear saying the gods were broiught to the camp, the gods that put the Eygptians through plagues. they begain to encourgage each other, reminding there people that they are strong and trained. The Philistines won that war they killed thirty thousand soldiers and took the Ark. Hophni and Phinehas was dead at the end of it all.

Death of Eli

The day that the Ark was captured a Benjamite came running in to Shiloh to deliver the news when Eli heard the cries he asked what was going on. He was told that his sons were dead and the Ark of the Lord was captured. When recieving the news Eli fell broke his neck and was dead. The bible tells us that Eli was an old heavy man and the fall was what killed him. Now Phinehas wife was close to delivery in her pregnacy and when she heard that Eli had died she went in labor but didn’t mack it out because the pain of labor became to much for her to bare. Before she died she named her son Ichabod she stated the glory of the Lord had departed from Israel, because the Ark of the Lord had been captured.

Blessed the Lord, the word of the Lord had come through. The Lord said that no one in Eli’s family would grow old. Eli had allowed the Ark of the Lord to leave Shiloh and he worried about it’s return, As if it was the spirit of the Lord himself. he died thinking that the Glory of the Lord had left his people, his daugher died the same way. Here is something to think about. God isn’t in a thing he is with us, as he walked the garden of eden. lets not put our faith in a cross around our necks or and alter that we built in our homes. Lets put our faith in The spirit of God which is with us.

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.

Be Blessed

1 Samuel Chapter 3

1-samuel-1024x576

The Lord calls Samuel

This is a short chapter but the important that is holds is big

The verse begins to tell us that In a time where there was no vision or visitations from the Lord. Eli was now getting old and could night see well. He was laying in his usual spot and Samuel was laying in the temple. The Lord called Samuel’s name three and each time Samuel went to Eli and asked if he was calling him. Each time Eli said that he wasn’t calling him, the last time Eli realized that it was the Lord calling Samuel. Eli told Samuel the next time that he hears his name being called to answer speak Lord, for your servant is listening.

Samuel went to lay down and the Lord stood before him and called his name, and Samuel answered speak, your servant is listening. The Lord began to tell Samuel that the time will come when Eli’s family will have to deal with him due to the wrong behavior of Eli’s son and the failure of Eli to not stop them.

The next morning Eli asked Samuel what the Lord had said to him and not to hold anything back. Samuel did as he was told and after Eli said to Samuel “He is Lord; let him do what is good in his eyes”.

Samuel grew up in the presence of the Lord and he let none of the Lords words fall to the floor. All that new Samuel recognized him as the Lords Prophet.

Some of us are waiting to hear the Lords voice, waiting to get instuctions of our assignment. When the Lord calls on you will you let his word fall to the floor or will you say ” Speak Lord, your servant is listening.” 

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.

Hello Everyone,

I pray that you all are in a place where you are hearing the voice of God. No matter what, make sure your speaking to God and making decisions after you have prayed. That’s a very important part of living a faithful life. inviting God to our choices, but most importantly resting assure on the answer he gives us.

1 Samuel Chapter 2

1-samuel-1024x576

verse 1 – 11

Hannah praise and says Her heart is happy and her mouth is a horn, she will boast over her enemies because God has delivered her. she begins to give God all the praise and to lift him up.  She says in verse 3 do not talk so proudly or speak arrogance because the Lord is a knowing God and by him our deeds are weighed. she says those who stumble are armed with strength. those who are full will look for food and those who are hungry will hunger no more. she who is barren will have seven children, but she who has many children will pine away.

She says the Lord raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash. The foundation of the earth is the Lords. He will guard the feet of the saints, but the wicked will be silenced in the dark.

He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed. After Praying Hannah and Elkanah went home, but Samuel stayed to serve God.

Praise God I pray for that kind of blessing, won’t ke do it. Lord exalt the words of my mouth, Hallelujah. Lord God let the hungry not hunger anymore, Glory to God.

verse 12 – 26 Eli’s wicked Sons

This part tells us that Eli’s sons were wicked they were not servants of God and was working in the Lords house for their own selfish reasons. instead of taking a pinch of boiled meat they would request raw meat to roast in the name of the priest. If denied they would threaten to take it by force.

Now Samuel was ministering for the Lord. He was a young boy wearing a linen ephod, every year when Elkanah and his family would go up to sacrifice Hannah would make him a new one and bring it up to him. Eli would bless Hannah and Elkanah saying may the Lord give you children to take the place of the one she prayed for. The Lord was gracious to Hannah, she ended up baring three sons and two daughters.

In these verses we also learn that Eli knew about his sons behavior through word of mouth, the Lord says to his sons if a man sins against another man then the Lord intercede for them, but if a man sins against God then who will intercede for him. Eli’s son’s did not listen and it was the Lord’s decision to put them to death.

That last part is something to think about if we sin against man then we go to God but where so we go when we sin against God. We repent and go to God Praise God! Never be foolish enough that you don’t repent for your wrong doings.

verse 27 – 37

In these verses a man of God came to Eli and told him the Lord had said because he honored his sons over God, they will die on the same day to show Eli that He is Lord. His family will not live to old age and there will be another priest and his family will go to that priest to eat.

Blessed the Lord! Let tell you. When the Lord tells us something we need to do let’s honor that. In yesterday’s blog in the first chapter of  Samuel we learned that when the Lord blesses us with what we ask of him that we give it back we give him thanks giving and praise for loving us enough to allow us to move forward on the things that we delight in. I father Loves us and he made his baby happy, Praise God. Today we are learning that when the Lord tells you to remove something and you don’t then you are honoring that thing or person before God. Idolatry. There will be times that the Lord tells you to let go of something as Hannah was willing to let go of the one thing she wanted, her son to show her thanks giving to the Lord. The Lord blessed her she was no longer baron, what you are willing to give up the Lord says he will replace it double. Amen

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.

1Samuel Chapter 1

1-samuel-1024x576

verse 1 -7

In these verses we learn that there was a man by the name of Elknanah who had two wives. The womens name were Peninnah and Hannah. Peninnah had children but Hannah did not. during a certain time of the year Elknannah would pack up his family and leave this was his time to go pray, worship and sacrifice to the Lord. When Elknnanah would sacrifice he woul give a portion of the meat to Peninnah and her children. But the verses say that because he loved her and she couldn’t bare children he would give Hannah double portion. Peninnah would poke at Hannah because she couldn’t have children and make Hannah cry and feel depressed.

As I was reading this chapter, I thought about how Gods people would take a certain time of day or season to go up and pray, praise and Worship. this is a tridition that we seem  to have stopped. Yes I am reading from the old testiment, but what I am starting to realize, is that we have removed God out of our tradition. Yes some of us are going to church every Sunday, some of us will wake up every morning and pray, but will we sacrifice time, to go to him shut everything down, get our household together, and worship.

That’s what Elknannah did, Now when he sacrificed he gave Hannah double, and I am sure this put Peninnah in her feelings wondering what made hannah so special? she didn’t have no babies. I’m pretty sure that this action caused the spirit of Jealousy to rear his head during a time of worship. That spirit coming in and taking over Peninnah, she begin to attack the one thing that she knew that would hurt Hannah, The fact that she couldn’t have children.

verse 8-20

Elkanah asked Hannah why was she crying? Why won’t she eat? Why she was depressed? he felt she should feel he meant more then then even having ten son? One day when they had finished eating in Shiloh, hannah stood up to leave and she began praying, she was praying in her heart but her mouth was moving. Eli a priest thought for sure that she was drunk and said to her. ” How long will keep getting drunk?” Hannah goes on to tell him that she wasn’t drunk but praying to God, she begged not to think that she was a wilcked woman.  Eli told her to go and peace and may Gao grant her what she was asking for. Her answer to him was may his servant find favor in his eyes. Hannah went home and ate feeling light and no longer depressed.In sometime her husband laid with her and she had a son and named him Samuel, she said it was because she asked the Lord for him.

Reading these verses we are reminded that God knows our heart. Even when we send our pitition spiritually he hears. Have you stood and agreed with someone elses prayer, prayed that God hears and answers them, at the time that maybe just what is needed. In that moment Hannah had given the problem to God she no longer was depressed or struggling with her emotions but ready to eat and enjoy her life. In some time she ended up getting pregnant and naming the baby Samuel.

verse 21 – 28

Here we learn about Hannah dedicating her son to God. Instead of going with Elkanah and Perninnah to worship and sacrifice she waited to wean her some from breast feeding and take him. After Samuel was weaned from his mothers breast she took him up to Shiloh with a young bull, flour , and wine. When they had scarificed the bull she took Samuel to Eli and told him that she prayed for the child and the Lord  granted her the child so now she is giving him back to the Lord.and he worshiped there.

These verses reminds us that whatever God grants us in prayer we must be ready, to give it back. He grants you a house, you say to those who crosses the threshold this is the Lords house. Financies we sow and tithe, business we give God the Glory and sow and tithe, Marriage we put God in the middle praying and worshiping with our partner. lets take a lesson from the book of 1Samuel and remember to stand agree with someone in prayer and dedicated your blessing back to God. 

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 40 – 43

In this chapter Ezekiel is taken in to a vision and God shows him the Temple and the measurements .

If your saying is that it, I’m saying no. As I was reading the chapter and the measurements, the spirit reminded me that when God gives us an assignment he gives us all the details. He doesn’t say that it’s going to be easy, he doesn’t say it’s going to happen right away, he just shows us how wonderful it will be if we persevere through all the hard work. When we fall in line to his plans, He will provide the material we will need, he will even provide the measurements. We just need to provide the faith that we are worthy of his Love and he Loves us enough to want greater for us. A foundation built on a faith like bricks.

Ezekiel Chapter 39

images

In this chapter The Lord tells Ezekiel to prophesy against Gog and say that the Lord will Turn him around and send him against the mountain of Israel. That is where the Lord will strike his bow from his left hand and his arrows will fall from his right hands. On the mountain of Israel is where he and his army will become food to the birds and wild animals.

The Lord says at this time he will no longer make his holy name be profaned. The nations will know that His name is the Holy One in Israel.

The Lord says that their weapons will be used as fuel for the people of Israel, for seven years they will not have to cut down trees because they will use the weapons of Gog and his army. The Lord says they will loot and rob all who loot and robbed them.

The Lord says that He will give Gog a burial-place in Israel, It will block the way of the travelers, because Gog and his Army will be buried there. It will be called the Valley of Hamon Gog. For seven months the house of Israel will bury them in order to cleanse the land. Men will be regularly employed to cleanse the land.

They will go through the land and one man will mark the sites for the gravediggers to bury the bones.

The Lord says to Ezekiel to call all the birds and wild animals and there will be a great sacrifice. you will drink the blood and eat the flesh of great men.

The Lord says from that day the house of Israel will know that He is Lord. all the nations will know that the people of Israel went in to exile for their sin and I hid my face from them and dealt with them according to their sin.

The Lord says I will now bring them  back from captivity and will have compassion on all the people of Israel. They will forget their shame and all unfaithfulness.

After reading this chapter I have been reminded, that God wants us to forget our shame, after we have been cleansed and saved. Sometimes we hold on to the use to; as we are trying to walk in faith. we can’t build a faith like bricks if our bricks are cracked.  cracked bricks will collapse. God wants us to let go of what we once did, he has dealt with us accordingly. Jesus has already died for those sins, he laid it on the cross for us. Saints I tell you what ever wrong you have done that kept you from God, is in the pass it’s on your dirty garment which has been taken off of you. Allow yourself to understand that the Lord has already erased that he turned his back from your sin and he now looks at you with compassion. So if the Lord has turned his back from your sin then you need to as well. It’s the only way for you to build your faith in God that will not allow life’s storms to come and knock you down.

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.
