I pray that you all are moving with the power of God. As your walking through your day, remind yourself that Jesus gave his disciples the power to heal the sick, raise the dead, and rebuke demons so I ask you, aren’t you a disciple use your power today and go forth in faith.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy
and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve is writing this blog and as the founder of Journey in Praise Ministry . I also serve as one of the leaders of the Walk It Out Ministries and as an encourager as well. Another way that I serve is as a intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint prayer wall, if you would like to be added to the prayer wall you can email me at Fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com. okay lets get into the word of the Lord.
Matthew Chapter 12
The word begins by telling us that Jesus and his disciples were walking through a field and the disciples were hungry and begain to pick from the heads of the grain to eat.
The word says when the pharisees saw this they said to Jesus.
your disciples are doing something that is not lawfull on the Sabbath day!
The word says Jesus answered them by saying
Didn’t you read in the scripture about David and his men who were hungry, and they went in to the temple and ate the consecrated bread on the sabbath?
Or what about the priest who break the sabbath and are blameless.
Right now in this place there is one greater than the temple.
If you had known what this means. Then you would know I desire compassion and not sacrifice.
And you would not have
condemned the innocent.
Amen! Glory be to God!!!!
This word reminds me that, when we walk on our journey there will without a doubt be people pointing at everything you do. Ready to say “he/she isn’t really serving God look what they did?”
As a believer/servant you get that all the time. Those actions can take a positive effect or a negative effect. When your dealing with others and what God tells you to do. Concern yourself with the fact that you are not serving them, your serving God and Jesus is greater than the rules and laws that people put on your faith and your journey.
Verse 9 -21
The word goes on to say; Jesus left from there and went to their synagogue. There was a man there with a withered hand and they asked him if it was lawful to heal on the sabbath days.
If a man had a sheep, and the sheep fell into the pit on the sabbath day, would he not grab it and lift it out.
A man is better than a sheep.
Jesus then told the man to stretch out his hand and it was restored whole.
The word says the pharisees went out and held a council meeting against Jesus about how they might destroy him.
When Jesus knew what they were doing he left from there and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all and told them not to tell anyone. This was to fullfill the prophesy spoken by the prophet Isaiah.
Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgement to the gentiles.
He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets
A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgement unto victory.
The Lord says isn’t man more important than sheep. So if you see someone who needs help and compassion with a little bit of love are you gonna let them suffer. Isnt compassion greater than sacrifice which is what was sat aside for the sabbath.
We learned from Matthew Chapter 10 that when their is trouble people try to bring you down go to the next town go to the next event.
The truth is you’ll be sitting there all day trying to prove your works and word of the Lord to someone who doesn’t really care to say they understand or your right or even Glory be to God. Because we do the works for the Glory of God we can move on because our reward comes from God.
Jesus gave us amazing examples of how to handle ourselves when dealing with others. But most importantly to know that you are walking in the prophesy and all things lead back to the word of God.
Verse 22 – 38
The word says then a possessed man who was blind and dumb was brought to Jesus. And he healed him and the man could speak and see.
The word says the people were amazed and said is this the Son of David (The Messiah)
When the pharisees heard of this they said that Jesus cast out devils with help from Beelzebub the prince of demons.
The word says Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them.
Every kingdom divided is laid waste and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.
If satan is casting out satan then how can his kingdom stand.
And if I cast out demons with the help of Beelzebub, by whom do your children cast them out?
But if I cast out demons by the spirit of God has come on you.
How can someone enter a strong man’s house and steal his property, your gonna have to first bind him up, then take his things.
If you are not with me, your against me. And if you dont gather with me you scatter
All manner of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven, but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven.
Who ever speaks a word against the son of man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, will not be forgiven on this world or the world to come.
Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt. For thee tree is known by his fruit.
You brood of vipers how can you be evil and speak good things. The mouth speaks what fills the heart.
A good man, with a good heart brings good things, an evil man with an evil heart will bring evil things.
On the day of Judgement every man will be accountable for every careless and useless word spoken.
By your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.
In these verses we learn that the Lord says your kingdom divided will not stand. It brings us back to a family that prays together stays together.
In this generation we must be mindful of how we us our mouths. If we speak good, good we will receive. But the lord tells us one thing for certain, what’s in your heart will for certain come out your mouth.
Verse 38 – 46
The word says some of the scribes and the pharisees answered Jesus saying Master we want to see a sign from you, and Jesus answered
A generation of evil doers and adulterous people looking for a sign, and there will be no sign given, but the sign of the prophet Jonah.
Like Jonah was three days and three nights in the whales belly. Son of man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
The men of Ninevah will rise in judgment with this generation, and will condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold a greater Jonah is here.
The queen of the South will stand up at the judgement against this generation she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and something greatet than solomon is here.
When the unclean spirit leaves from man it roams through dry land searching for rest, he will not find none. Then it will say I will go back to my home from which I came. It will find it empty, swept, and garnished
Then he will go and take with him seven other spirits more wicked then himself. And they enter in and dwell there.
The last state of that man is worse than the first and the same for this wicked generation .
The Lords word is straight and forward here, when we go to the Lord to be clean and walk a righteous life. Are old spurit leaves us and we are gleaning every word we here from God.
You will get tested your faith will be tried and it’s gonna be hard.
When the Lord talks about generations, well we can look around and see my grandmothets generation was nothing compared to my children why because the prophesy must come to pass.
The word says as Jesus spoke to the people his mother and brother stood without needing to speak to him.
Someone said to him look ypur mother and brother stands without needing to speak to you.
Who is my mother and who is my brother
He stretched out his hands toward his disciples
Behold my mother and my brother. For whoever does the will of my father in heaven is my brother, mother, and sister
