My Understanding on the Book of Ecclesiastes

The Book of Ecclesiastes is the writings within someones personal journal. Most pastors believe it was written around 925 BC by Solomon, the wise Jewish King. He describes himself in chapter one and two. The name Eccliaestes come from a group of 70 ancient scholars that wrote about it. It is wisdom about a life journey without reference to God.

It starts off as him explaining in life being negative, depressed, down and out because he tried it without God. In the beginning of his journey he purposefully searches for joy and happiness apart from God to compare the results. Anything away from God is not joyful, nor rich in honor, and incur more challenges. He starts out talking about his life being purposeless with no meaning. Life without God is a meaningless cycle of events. A person will have no protection, no understanding, no experience, no guidance, and no support from God.

People have tried since the beginning of time to put meaning to life without including God. For example, they took God out of school. Since then more shooting and killing has increased. People are unable to pray anywhere without feeling weird bc they put God in a box physiologically and mentally. People of the world would instead praise evil movies, sinful music, action and things. They have too much pride to stop following behind Godless men. That is why God wanted certain tribes to stay within their tribe and not marry outsiders.

As I evaluate the new generation society, I find people living without God have no joy nor are they happy. That is confirmation that God is the way, light and the truth. I will live in the house of the lord forever. Why? Because life without God has no meaning or purpose.

Are you fighting your battles?

God has not given you the spirit of fear.

There is no need to panic. Don’t stress or worry will everything work out for good. You must Trust in the lord in all you do. Trust God during the bad times and the times when it seems like the world is falling on you. Understand that God will fight your battles. Humble yourself before God, resist the devil, and he will flee.

You don’t have to fight the devil or curse him with foul words. God’s full armor will protect you spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and mentally. Only a true relationship with God and a mind with spiritual discernment will understand how God got your back. He will never leave nor forsake you. It takes wisdom and knowledge of God to gain a level of trust.

It’s essential to know when to let go and let God finish his work. The hard work has been cut out for us because it is the Lords battle that the devil is trying to fight with us. Don’t allow the devil’s insecurities to fall into your life. Have patience and let the Lord fight your battles. It doesn’t matter if they are big or small.

Therefore, don’t be afraid when you are walking in the valley of the shadow of death. Fear, no evil, speak no evil, see no harm. Praise the Lord at all time because he already won the fight.

My Understanding of the Book of Proverbs

The Book of Proverbs is about wisdom teachings on how to live righteously by God here on earth.

Wisdom was created before God laid the foundations of the earth. It teaches the importance of wisdom and knowledge. I’ve learned it is essential to know wisdom and instruction if you desire prosperity, love, and happiness of God.

God knows our every move because the ways of man are before the eyes of the lord. God sees everything we do because he created us in his image. A wise man will hear with his two ears and increase his learning. God has given us a great way to honor our parents. He tells us to listen to the instructions of our father and follow the laws of our mother. All who fear the Lord will hate evil, pride, arrogance and the evil way. Proverb 8:13.

Sometimes we tend to think too deeply into words. The word evil means immoral, sinful, wrong acts or unacceptable behavior. Wicked means evil or morally wrong.

Many people fear things of the world, not understanding the fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom. Anyone who open their hearts to understanding will find the knowledge of God. God blesses us in all parts of life, business, health, love, and everything else here on earth. King’s reign and Princes rule by God. Durable riches and honor are with God, and he will fill your treasures. Only if you choose Gods way of righteousness not by following the sinful man ways. We can be led down the path of righteousness by trusting in God in all we do. Find the desires of your heart by learning not to your understanding.

The lord found the earth by wisdom. Sound wisdom will give your soul life, and grace will withhold you. Allow the lord to be your confidence. Exalt wisdom so she can promote you. Wise men will inherit the glory of the lord. Eating healthy and exercising will help you live physically but God has the power to multiply and increase your days. Proverb 9:11

Most people are afraid of death. According to Proverb 10:2 righteousness delivereth from death. Most people believe they must work hard nearly killing themselves not understanding that God’s blessings will make you productive according to Proverbs 10:22. It’s confirmation that a good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children according to Proverbs 13:22. Therefore we should be working on building to leave something for the next generation.

I’m thankful that my grandfather followed God’s instruction by leaving his home, boat and other valuables to pass down to generations after him. Today in the 21st century, the average person is worried about spending money on materials that are not of value and can’t be passed down to their children.

A house can be built solid through wisdom and established by understanding and knowledge according to Proverb 24:3. It is said that a man of intelligence can increase strength. The goal in life is to increase bc we are always expanding. Do not fear yourself or the unknown. Revenge is not of God. Do not say that you will treat one as they treated you. Proverb 24:29

Be careful what you fear because you can attract it. The fear of the wicked will come upon you: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
Proverbs 10:24 Lazy people are soon poor, and hard workers get rich. The blessings of Lord make a person productive.

I encourage all to read and study the Book of Proverbs if you truly want to increase knowledge and wisdom. It has given me a chance to get closer to God because I can be more obedient and follow his laws and commandments. According to Deuteronomy 28, we will receive the blessings of the lord, if we follow his commandments.

Understanding of the Book of Psalm

The Book of Psalms praises God throughout the 150 books. It was written between 1500-400 B.C. We find many poems, songs and other devices used during those days. King David and other authors helped write the book of Psalms. I enjoyed many of the prayers spoken. It gave me comfirmation that we are children of the most high.

There are about 9 types of Psalm throughout the book. Even if you don’t get a full understanding of the different psalms, it speaks to people heart universally. There are different aspects of the human experience that the book of Psalms approach. For one they inspire our worship and praise. Two, the prayers were spoken boldly. It is also used in the home as a guide.

Go to the book of Psalms when you want to praise him for different life challenges, repent and powerful prayer. I have favorite chapters and verses in the book of Psalms.

My Understanding for the Book of Esther

One of the greatest Military moments, a king full of pride, arrogance and bad decisions.

King XerXes threw a party to glorify his riches, fame, power and to feed his arrogance. He ruled 127 provinces from India to Cush empire. During his royal party he requested Queen Vashti to come see him. She refused in shame of his actions and their horrible Military defeat. While King threw a party for the palace, Queen Vashti threw a party for the women. This showed bad communication and distance between eachother. He allowed his people to drink without any responsibility within the 6 months of his royal party. King XerXes got very upset, removed her status as Queen for her disrespect, bad conduct and no discord. The only problem is he got his advice from partners that led him in the wrong direction. The way he handled the situation was like settling a problem with your significant other on social media. They encouraged him to write a new rule/script for women to obey their men throughout the palace and put a request out for a new Queen. Basically it told all his personal business.

The King put a search out for a new Virgin Queen. They end up choosing Esther, a beautiful Jew who hid her nationality and family background all her life. She received beauty treatments under the kings order to prepare her for queen. Now in the book of Esther, these are Jews who are not necessirily following Gods Law and not doing right. Throughout the book you don’t find any prayer to the God of Abraham/Jacob/Isaac however they did pray and fast. 

Mordecai, the one who cared for Esther up until she became Queen was apart of the Children of Isreal who was put into exile in Babylon due to the disobeidence to God. These Jews was saved but didn’t learn their lessons. Mordecai was in town one day and overheard some soldier preparing to assissinate the King. He shared the news and saved the King. However, the King put out an order to Kill Mordecai, and all other Jews in Susa and Jerusalem bc he refused to bow down to King Xerxes. Eventhough the Jews was not following the law and commandments, God was preserving his people bc if Xerxes killed them then the Children of Isreal would be Exinct. Over time, God saved Mordecai and the other jews from getting killed. They end up having favor from God. 

Understanding of the Book Nehemiah


The book of Nehemiah discuss the rebuilding of Jerusalem wall and restoration of the people. Symbolically the temple of God was in ruin the same way people lives today are broken, in distress and torn down. Nehemiah prayed before the God of Heaven first before he requested to build Jerusalem with the King. That is the same thing we should do as Gods people before we try to rebuild ourselves. Our bodies are the temple of God. He confessed the sins of not keeping the commandments, judgments nor statutes of God. When he got their, he surveyed the damages and requested certain families of Judah to help rebuild.

There was certain people who rebelled against them for building the wall. However, Nehemiah and the people was not afriad because they had the Lord on their side. They prepared soldiers to watch day and night over the land. On the other hand, the Jews cried out to Nehemiah because they was forced to borrow from the king, mortgage their lands, vineyards, houses and go into bondage. They were unable to pay back the interest. Its like today, we borrow from the government and they add ridiculous interest that the average person can’t afford to pay back.

Nehemiah gave rules for Jerusalem people based on their geneolgy. All the people gathered together to learn the Book of the Law of Moses. Their ancestors stopped following the laws and that’s why they were exiled into Babylon. Everyone gathered together as one to gain understanding. He requested that they do not mix their daughter with the people in the land according to Gods law. They were not to follow the defiled ways of other people in the land. They were not to sell or buy on the sabbath day. And debt is to be forgiven on the seventh year. That proves the government follows Gods law on the fact that credit can be cleared off a persons report in 7 years. They are to follow offerings, first fruits, tithing and more.

It proves today that many has sinned tremendously against the laws of God and we are currently living in Modern Day Babylon due to following the ways of defiled people in the land, idoling pagan gods and more. Lord be with us. 

God 1st Challenge: My Understanding of 1st & 2nd Chronicles

The Book of Chronicles in the bible talks about all the family lineage way back to Adam. However, the lineage of David’s descendants as King is told in detail. Most of them did evil in the sight of the lord when they rose to power. It’s like the presidents and prime ministers in the 21st century. Many have done wrong in the sight of the lord. They promote wrong doing and the people follow wrong doing. God has been hurt for so long because as hia children we follow behind Godless men. 

A couple of Kings that did good was King Solomon and King Hezekiah. When they did good by the lord, they was blessed exceedingly. However, when kings rose up and did evil by the lord, the lord brought his wrath upon them. Many were defeated in battle, sickness and chaos came around when God’s people were disobedient. 

So as we fast forward to the 21st century, our presidents have done evil and now God is pouring his wrath on the world, especially America. Everything has already been done under the sun. We are living in generational curses, walking dead in the mind and don’t have a close relationship with God. People are dropping like flies, the land is in a famine, disease and sickness is widespread and wars are ongoing. Only followers of God will survive. God will protect his obiedient children. This was a great lesson about free will. If you choose to be obiedient, God will bless you with an overflow of his riches and glory. If you reject his laws, his wrath will come down you.

My perspective of II Samuel

My lesson I learned this week after reading Samuel is that God gives us free will to do what we desire here on earth. For those of us who choose to follow the positive spirit of  God, you will get a positive response. If you decide to go against the Spirit of God, you will get negative results. Either way, there is only one main force in the world. It’s our decision if we decide to do good or evil with it. Today we call it Karma, which it is a Universal law. At the end of the day, God is exalted and the enemy is defeated. 
2 samuelIn II Samuel, a man who escaped from the camp of Israelites came running to David. He shared the story of how he killed King Saul. King Saul consciousness was eating him from the inside for having envy in his heart for David. King Saul asked the Amalekite to kill him. However, according to the commandments of God, Thou shalt not kill, I believe is what caused David to kill the Amalekite.
 
David became King of All Isreal when they realized he led the forces of Isreal even when Saul was king. The Lord God of Heaven’s Armies was with King David the whole time. He became more powerful over the years. The strength of God was given to each of God’s leaders. All because they were led by God. Saul did things against God multiple times, which caused God to not protect him and his ways as a King.
 
One thing that stuck out to me is when King David started to feel as though the Lords Covenant should be in the beautiful home they built for him instead of a tent outside. His love for the lord became stronger. King David was victorious wherever he went and won every battle because the Lord loved King David’s heart for that. That gave me a more understanding on how to keep possession the sacred things of God. Our minds, body, spirits, souls, family, personal, financial, emotional, the physical state of being are definitely sacred. 
 
Soon King David allowed the spirit of lust to enter him. He fell in love with Uriah’s wife and had set up a plot to kill Uriah. David reaped what he sowed. He lost his first born with her but was blessed with a powerful, wise son Solomon. He feared for what God could do for sinning. He was thankful praised God for saving his life, even though he lost his newborn. God had forgiven him. Solomon was loved by God and gained great wisdom.
 
Later on in 2nd Samuel, the woman from Tekoa request stirred my soul. She requested the king to help restore her people’s inheritance from God that the enemy stole from them. King Davids intuition knew that another man influenced her request. It shows how powerful we are as humans when we have a close relationship with God.
 
That is my perspective of 2 Samuel in the Bible

Put on the Whole Armor of God

The devil comes to kill, steal and destroy so be careful who you let in your life. Pay attention to see if it’s dark or light.
 
spiritsThere are two types of forces out there in the world. Negative spirits out to use everything it can against you and heavenly spirits that guide you on receiving the true blessings of God.
 
Don’t get caught up in the material things, worldly riches and fame because all of it will stay here in this world anyway. Way after you are gone. It’s ok to pass down generational wealth. It’s not ok to do things for the love of money.
 
Think about it, you can have a Perfect life today and lose it in all 24 hours later. Just because we don’t see negative spirits, don’t mean it won’t attack your job, your family, and/or your finances. It will even attack your body, mind, and spirit to lure you into sinning. Which in return separates you from the Most High!
 
Fight the good fight of Faith everyday. Put on the whole armor of God in order to stand firm against all strategies of the enemy!
 
Call out those negative spirits and command it to go, In the Name of Jesus! Comment Devil Flee from Thee!

The Story of David & Goliath: 1 Samuel

The story of David & Goliath stood out to me in the Book of 1 Samuel 17.
 
Based on my understanding, Goliath was a tall Philistine giant in the earth at the time Saul was King. He kept coming to Saul and the Israelites to fight one of them. He wanted a one on one fight to fight over the land. Goliath kept coming back but Saul and the Israelites were afraid. Earlier on Saul defeated the Philistines to help free the Israelites for the Lord. However, Goliath put fear in their hearts for some reason. It’s like modern day challenges and complications that come into our life. We may be fearful but it’s all about the beliefs that are created and vibrations.
 
david_and_goliath_by_erikbragalyan-d89x0isOne day David was there when Goliath returned to fight. David saw the disrespect for the lord from Goliath so he spoke out and asked Saul to go and fight him. David was a small, young boy who was faithful to God and Saul as a servant. Saul dressed David up in his armor wear but David refused it. He didn’t feel comfortable. David got his sling shot and 5 stones from the ground and went out to fight Goliath.
David was confident. He knew who he was and whose he was. He didn’t fear anything like being too small because he knew God was on his side. David was protected by the full armor of God when quoted from 1 Samuel 17:45 “I come against you in the name of Yeshua, the God of the Armies of Isreal.” David took his sling shot and aimed at Goliath’s forehead killing him instantly. He chopped his head off and took it to Saul.
 
Saul then started to get jealous because the people gave David more credit. Isreal and Judah loved David due to his brave heart and care to help others. This reminds me of the first rule of the 48 Laws of Power that says, “Never outshine the Master.” That is the flesh that gets in our way when emotions like envy, jealousy, etc arise. We must respect the process, blessings, and resources God has given us in life. It is a reason why each of us has our own path. We must fight the good fight of faith every day.
