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.

How to Sacrifice what you Love

A person must first make a decision to sacrifice for the lord. Prepare your mindset before you start the sacrifice. Tell yourself that you are ready to sacrifice ”   “.  You can do anything you put your mind to.  Choose something that is your favorite or a bad habit. 

The first couple of days are normally the hardest because you are breaking a habit. It will take strength and positive thinking to stand firm from falling back into your trap. 

Today marks day one of my sacrifice. I believe God has some mighty blessings underway in my life and he needs me to be pure and attentive. Congratulations to everyone who decided to sacrifice with me.

Lord, I Repent My Sins

I just received confirmation about my health diet. Isiah 66:17 says “Those who ‘purify’ themselves in a sacred garden feasting on pork and rats and other forbidden meats, will come to a terrible end.” Thank God I have awakened from the dead. The only thing now is staying awake and not going backward. It’s challenging to make changes in life. Especially when they are drastic changes.

I’ve been having major health problems recently where it sat me all the way down. I can tell I have been consciously sleeping where I couldn’t hear God speaking to me because after going to 5 & 6 doctors they all told me the same thing. Mrs. Williams, you look healthy, vitals signs are well, etc. However, the moment I leave my legs and surrounding area go into a massive muscle spasm. Sometimes it would hurt so bad to stand, sit or lay down. Then, I noticed, medicine and doctors will not help me, because it’s a spiritual matter. I realized it’s what I been putting in my body and how I been using and abusing my body.

For 10 years straight, I worked body under serious pressure. I put all type of greasy, dead food in my body, breathed in all type of harmful chemicals like bleach. I attracted negativity because of my spiritual and physical actions weren’t in line with God. I’ve idolized people, places, and things unconsciously. I repent, I repent, I repent. Lord, I repent in front of the world, saints, and priests. Cleanse my body, mind, spirit, and soul. Take the veals off so I can see and hear you clearly. I want on being perfect in your eyes. When I pray, I pray for all who love you.

In Jesus Name… Amen

Book Of Joshua: My Understanding

 

The Book of Joshua was a continued mission of God. Joshua was protected, never left nor forgotten. Joshua is the one who led the people of Isreal to a land flowing with milk and honey. It was important to be strong and courageous. Their journey led to an overflow of blessings and the ultimate test of faith. There were rivers to cross and vast grassland. The Lord lifted up the waters for them to cross the Jordan on dry ground.

Lesson: Trust a man or woman of God who speaks, practice and encourage others to believe the impossible. The Lord helped build a strong reputation for Joshua throughout the land. It seemed impossible to do alone but Joshua had faith.

trust

This book also discusses how the Lord told the 12 Israelites to create a memorial of Stones for future generations like us. God knew we would want to see proof since the sins would blind us spiritually. We would ask what was the stones for. They piled 12 stones from the Jordan river for proof that God lifted the sea waters so they could cross.

In Jericho, God gave the Israelites a mission to take over the town. The Ram’s horn would be the calling to go to take over the land. The Arc of the Lord was carried with them on their journey. During the time of their destruction of Jericho, they were instructed to not take any gold, silver, iron or because it was heavenly treasures. Individuals within the Israelites decided to sneak and steal God’s treasure by burying them in the ground.

Lesson: God knows our every move because we are apart of God. Instead of going to each person who lied, and stole God’s possession privately, God called every single Israelite. The Lord called out each Tribe that had a guilty man. The clan within the tribe was then called, followed by the guilty man family. The guilty person within that family was finally be called out. In modern day, people would call that embarrassing to be called out in front of everyone.

In 2017, on this beautiful summer day, we share the same belief as our ancestors. You know the common saying “you represent your family, job, business, city, state, country, the human race, and most of all a being of God. God has given us commandments, laws, rules, and scriptures to help us follow a righteous path. Next, it states after the family of the thieves was stoned to death, the lord was no longer angry. To my understanding, the Lord poured his wrath on them. You reap what you sow. However, their consequences were more brutal in the ancient days.

The word got out about the Israelites journey of taking over lands. The people of Gibeon was so afraid of dying, they deceived the Israelites. Joshua got deceived because he didn’t consult with the Lord before making a treaty with them. Joshua was so committed to the Lord, they did not kill the towns due to the promise they made. Their oath was made in the name of the Lord. The people of Gibeon was cursed but not killed.

Lesson: We are guilty of taking action before consulting the Lord and experience the same thing of Joshua in 2017. All because he didn’t put God first, he got tricked. We must make sure we build a personal relationship with God so the enemy can’t deceive us anymore.

media

The act of God: A miraculous event occurred where the lord allowed the sun to stay in the middle of the sky and didn’t set like a normal day. It was from a prayer Joshua made in order to defeat the enemy. Wow!

The Book of Jashar was mentioned for the first time ever. This is amazing to see how the Bible has led me to another book of God during my God first mission. The book of Joshua taught a lot of lessons about discipline, leadership, loyalty, strength, and faith.

It is time for us to listen to that still voice from within and follow our intuition or spirit. You were created for a purpose. Live out that purpose.

​Beware: Heart felt, Truth and Emotional. My understanding of the Truth in Deuteronomy 18-34

Obeying the Lord Commands
It is important to obey God’s commands and decrees because you we’re created as holy people. Today, many people question are they God’s holy people. One proof that shows African Americans are the ancestors of God’s holy people is in Deuteronomy 28:32. Read it for yourself. If our ancestors was disobiedient to God, I take my SACRIFICE and ask the Lord to please forgive my ancestors for the wrong doing. Deuteronomy 28:32 says ” you will watch as your sons and daughters are taken away as slaves.” Further along, the verses say a foreign nation will eat the crops you worked hard on. Well that reminds me of my African ancestors who were slaving 23 hours a day in those fields around America. The cotton they picked with their bare hands. 


The verse say, that they would be in constant oppression and harsh treatment. The curses of God clearly describe African American people who were brought captive from Africa. Yes, I know, cry. But when you finish crying, will you SACRIFICE something you love for God? Lets all take the month of April & May 2017 to sacrfice something we love for God to ask for forgiveNess of our ancestors wrong doing so we can re-enter the covenant. Lets start doing right by God with all your heart and soul so we can take back our blessings for obiedience. 

It was important to follow God’s instructions and decrees just as promises of blessings would be given unto you. These chapters I read reminds me of the same things going on today. Instructions was given to never judge with one witness, but have multiple witnesses to judge. 

I am a living witness because there was a  couple of times in my business career where an employee would do something wrong to my client. I never went off just one witness. I investigated and allowed other witnesses to come forth. It never failed that 2-3 witnesses (clients) who didn’t even know one another would come forth about the decieving actions of an employee. That gave me confirmation for displinary actions. 

Now here is a contradictory question I have for a priest, pastor or man who went to bible school. I would love different answers. I noticed in Genesis 22:2 Abraham was given instructions and tested by God to SACRIFICE his only son Isaac as a burnt offering. Of course, God sent a messenger to replace his son with a ram. However, in Deuteronomy 18:10 it reads, “Never SACRIFICE your son or daughter as a burnt offering.” My question is why would God test us like that then turn around and tell us not to do it? 

The Lord also give wisdom on how to recognize false prophets. Today we have many false prophets speaking things that are void. They are casting curses and spells on us. Shamefully many don’t even know because they lack the wisdom and the personal relationship with God. One way to recognize false prophets is when they speak in the Lord’s name and his predictions does not come true. Therefore, don’t fear the anti-christ. 

Regulations Concerning War 

God stated when you declare war, the priest must go out to speak to the troops. Therefore, my wondering question to the loyal troops of the US is when these different presidents declared war, did a priest come and speak to you or pray with you? I want to THANK you for serving our country but I’m wondering if they was really our enemy and most important was you was with the Lord when you did this. I recognize many troops who come back from war have horrific nightmares about what they experience overseas. I have met many who couldn’t sleep at night. Do you really think God would send you out to just to torture you mentally and spiritually afterwards? Just like President Donald Trump recent attack on Syria. We had no knowledge of Syria being an enemy according to the American people. I personally haven’t heard of possible threats about this country Syria to just up and go to war with our American dollars that we pay every year with taxes. God will give victory to the troops not nightmares.  

I learned that God will turn man’s cursing into blessings when necessary according to Deuteronomy 23. God’s word specifically said ” Do not charge interest on the loans you make to your fellow Israelites.” That went for money, food or anything else. I look at it today in the 21st century as fellow American or man. So why are these big corporations charging ridiculous interest rates on the American people when most of the time, we don’t even have the money we requested the loan for? 

I know that they look at African/Black Americans as foreigners. Yes, majority of Americans are charged interest but you will find the Black communities charged ridiculous interest rates. I remember being charged 36% on a car loan years ago. The only problem is most of the people in America is foreigners besides the Indians.

God’s laws states to never take advantage of poor and destitute laborers. However, there has been a war against the poor since the 1600 when Africans was brought to America. We have been be-littled, castrated, burnt and hung alive but this new generation is ignorant of how to get free. 

God will restore his holy people when we start to obey the decrees and laws given to us. Follow your spirit when the enemy is trying to decieve you. 

This is my God 1st Challenge to understand the wisdom and knowledge. 

Catrina’s Understanding of Deuteronomy 1-17

​Deuteronomy is the book of revelation for African Americans, in my opinion. This book will bring tears to many eyes. Some may even get emotional about the truth being revealed, especially on my next understanding of Deuteronomy 18-34. On the other hand, the carnal mind will not recognize what the spirit is trying to tell you. I encourage you to embrace the wisdom of God either way. Choose to make wiser decisions tomorrow.

The lord continued to guide Moses and the people through the wilderness. This is the time when God gave the decrees and laws in how to live life on Earth in a perfect and upright way. The lord said in Deuteronomy 5, you should not have no other gods or idols. Not just golden image of a calf but don’t idol TV, music, bad habits, people, places or things. 


Many fall into the trap unconsciously of idoling everyday. What was the first thing you thought about when you opened your eyes this morning? I remember I used to get up and look at my Facebook page. I was idoling Facebook. It wasn’t until I started getting closer with God when I became conscious about idoling all the worldly things. Many of us is guilty of it. However, this is the time to get right. Don’t continue going against the Lord because it is never too late. The lord will never leave nor forsake you.

Don’t misuse the name of the Lord. You know how many swear and lie on the Lord’s name? Be careful what you are saying because you reap what you sow. The lord ask if we could keep the Sabbath day holy. We all need rest and peace in our lives. Honor your father and mother so you may live long. Do not murder, commit adultery, steal, lie or covet others possessions. The interesting thing is that we are seeing these exact things happening in the 21st century. We must stand still and pay attention so we can realize what is hurting us. 

The ten commandments, decrees and laws were created so we can enjoy Long Life and increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey. Man do not live on bread alone but on the Lord’s word. No one will be able to stand against you when you follow the Lord’s path. Therefore, I will live in the house of the lord forever.

Thanks for reading. This is my God 1st Challenge. Month 4

My Understanding of Numbers 19-36 -God 1St Challenge

​Numbers 19-36

I am still committed to my God first challenge. Here is my understanding. God works through signs, wonders, people, places and things. Numbers expresses a sense of God’s Love and presence as the Israelites continue to turn away in rebellance. This chapter starts by sharing the story of Israelites still traveling from Egypt. We understand the hardships that has come upon them since they left Egypt. Its just like today, many are still lost trying to find their way in life. God sent an angel to bring the people out of Egypt which was Moses. Our Queen Harriet Tubman was the female Moses for ancestors that was in slavery. Today we have our modern day Moses but many are still complaining and blinded. 

As the Isrealites traveled, they respectively requested the king of different lands to politely pass through. However the people of Edom and Heshbon rejected them constantly. The Israelite decided to go around Edom but once again they became impatient and sinned against God. God sent his wrath upon them because of their ungratefulness. God soon allowed Isreal to capture certain lands. 

When Isreal came to Balaam, he allowed the Lord to speak to him before trying to kill them. Balaam sinned for not paying attention to Gods sign bc his path was a reckless one. God uncovered Balaam eyes so he could see why he was being stopped through the donkey actions. The lord had mercy on Balaam for beating his donkey. It was a misunderstanding of him thinking his donkey was trying to embarrass him. 

That reminds me of the 21st century. We ignore Gods signs due to lack of knowledge, non-relationship and blinded to truth when God is trying to get our attention. God always promise and fulfill. 

Numbers 26 discusses the inheritance God blessed the Israelite. Knowing that God blessed them with inheritance gives me a confidence that we have unclaimed inheritance. The inheritance was claimed based on a hierarchy. First inheritance would pass down to the Son, Daughters, brothers, fathers brothers, nearest relatives and lastly clans. 

Once again, God requested food offering with a pleasing aroma. The 1st of every month with a new moon, the Sabbath day and when ppl sinned was requirements to give offerings to the Lord. We have not been educated on the depth of offering during certain times of the month.

In conclusion, the Israelites continued their journey to a land flowing with milk and honey. Those who came out of Egypt 20 + years old was fearful to take dominion of their land God blessed them with. Are you afraid to take possession your God given Rights? Will you remove the fear the enemy placed in your heart to take back what God has inherited to you? 

Be thankful and allow God to guide you.

God 1st Challenge: Understanding of Genesis 26-50

I am blessed and thankful that God has created us in his image.
They say that everything we are experiencing during this lifetime has already happened under the sun. The story of Jacob really stood out to me. To my understanding, the spirit of jealousy, impatience, lies, and dishonesty was created around this time. Great things also happened during this time because God spirit never left.
 
Jacob was told by his mother to trick his father into blessing him instead of his brother Esau. He knew that it wasn’t right to lie to his father but still lied to him. Jacob reaped struggles in his years working to marry Rachel. Her father tried to hustle and get over on him. During this time in the story, I realized that Jacob asks God for the forgiveness of his wrong-doing in his past. Throughout all the sinful things that Jacob and his family did, God still forgave him. We will all walk through the shadow of the valley of death. Even when we slip and fall, we must recognize, repent, forgive and ask for forgiveness.
Now even though God forgave Jacob, the sin was passed down to the next generation. I noticed Jacob favored his son Joseph more than the rest. Joseph older brothers became jealous of him. Joseph suffered when they sold him to slavery, but he kept a pure heart with God. God protected over Joseph through his prison years.
Due to Joseph patience and pure heart, God blessed him and his family tremendously. Joseph was blessed with fortunes such as land, riches, and glory. Joseph still remained humbled when he caught up with his brothers who sold him. It proves that being humble, praying, repenting and standing firm through the trials and tribulations is the best way to live life right by God. I’m honored to know that the Bible is the core instructions before leaving earth. It is exciting to learn more about God.
