Revelation 6:15-17

15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

15 Y los reyes de la tierra, y los grandes, los comandantes, los ricos, los poderosos, y todo siervo y todo libre, se escondieron en las cuevas y entre las peñas de los montes; 16 y decían a los montes y a las peñas: Caed sobre nosotros y escondednos de la presencia del que está sentado en el trono y de la ira del Cordero, 17 porque ha llegado el gran día de la ira de ellos, ¿y quién podrá sostenerse?

It really won’t matter what the position is of any man or woman on that last day. No matter how rich or powerful you are, you will still answer to God. Is it all really about gaining riches and power for ourselves? No way! It is all about Jesus!

1 John 5:4-5

For whoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

Porque todo lo que es nacido de Dios vence al mundo; y esta es la victoria que ha vencido al mundo: nuestra fe. ¿Y quién es el que vence al mundo, sino el que cree que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios?

We all have the opportunity to be born of God. Our faith in Him is our victory. It all comes down to accepting and believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. Not Muhammad or Buddha, Jesus!!!! Victory is here; know it and trust it! God has overcome all!

Isaiah 51:16

And I have put my words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of my hand, that I may establish the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, you are my people.

y he puesto mis palabras en tu boca, y con la sombra de mi mano te he cubierto al establecer los cielos, poner los cimientos de la tierra y decir a Sion: “Tú eres mi pueblo.

Trust in God; I will trust in God. He has made promises that He will not go back on. We don’t carry through on all our promises, but God does. Your shadow is magnificent oh God. I will rest and glory in You all the rest of my days.

Romans 6:4

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that just as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Por tanto, hemos sido sepultados con El por medio del bautismo para muerte, a fin de que como Cristo resucitó de entre los muertos por la gloria del Padre, así también nosotros andemos en novedad de vida.

I thank Jesus for dying for me, but even more so, i thank God for raising Him from the grave. This shows us that we too, can arise from death and the grave. Praise Jesus!

2 Chronicles 20:20-21

And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall you be established; believe his prophets, so shall you prosper. And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endures forever.

Se levantaron muy de mañana y salieron al desierto de Tecoa; y cuando salían, Josafat se puso en pie y dijo: Oídme, Judá y habitantes de Jerusalén, confiad en el SEÑOR vuestro Dios, y estaréis seguros. Confiad en sus profetas y triunfaréis. Y habiendo consultado con el pueblo, designó a algunos que cantaran al SEÑOR y a algunos que le alabaran en vestiduras santas, conforme salían delante del ejército y que dijeran: Dad gracias al SEÑOR, porque para siempre es su misericordia.

We are in the same position; if we will listen to God and to those He has appointed, He will bless us and prosper us. We should worship and praise Him at all times with songs and our words. He can and will give us the strength and the way to defeat our enemies.

Isaiah 8:11-13

11For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,

12Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.

13Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

11 Pues así me habló el SEÑOR con gran poder y me instruyó para que no anduviera en el camino de este pueblo, diciendo:
12 No digáis: “Es conspiración,
a todo lo que este pueblo llama conspiración,
ni temáis lo que ellos temen, ni os aterroricéis.
13 Al SEÑOR de los ejércitos es a quien debéis tener por santo.
Sea El vuestro temor,
y sea El vuestro terror.

Just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t make it right. We need to heed God and His paths for us even if it means going against everyone else.

2 Timothy 4:5

But you watch in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fully carry out your ministry.

Pero tú, sé sobrio en todas las cosas, sufre penalidades, haz el trabajo de un evangelista, cumple tu ministerio.

God is with us, not against us. We must keep on keeping on. It is all about Jesus and fulfilling the mission of reaching all men, women and children with His love. Are we doing it? Prayer is our greatest action in that the Holy Spirit will keep us and guide us.

James 3:3-10

3Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. 5Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

3 Ahora bien, si ponemos el freno en la boca de los caballos para que nos obedezcan, dirigimos también todo su cuerpo. 4 Mirad también las naves; aunque son tan grandes e impulsadas por fuertes vientos, son, sin embargo, dirigidas mediante un timón muy pequeño por donde la voluntad del piloto quiere. 5 Así también la lengua es un miembro pequeño, y sin embargo, se jacta de grandes cosas. Mirad, ¡qué gran bosque se incendia con tan pequeño fuego! 6 Y la lengua es un fuego, un mundo de iniquidad. La lengua está puesta entre nuestros miembros, la cual contamina todo el cuerpo, es encendida por el infierno e inflama el curso de nuestra vida. 7 Porque todo género de fieras y de aves, de reptiles y de animales marinos, se puede domar y ha sido domado por el género humano, 8 pero ningún hombre puede domar la lengua; es un mal turbulento y lleno de veneno mortal. 9 Con ella bendecimos a nuestro Señor y Padre, y con ella maldecimos a los hombres, que han sido hechos a la imagen de Dios; 10 de la misma boca proceden bendición y maldición. Hermanos míos, esto no debe ser así.

Our tongues can do a lot of damage or it can lift those around us up. How are we using our speech? Is  it for good or bad? Are we considering what our words are doing to the person we are speaking too? Words are the ultimate weapon and can destroy lives. Guns and weapons do damage, but the tongue is the ultimate weapon. With the tongue, wars start and stop.

Matthew 6:7-8

But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not therefore like them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.

Y al orar, no uséis repeticiones sin sentido, como los gentiles, porque ellos se imaginan que serán oídos por su palabrería. Por tanto, no os hagáis semejantes a ellos; porque vuestro Padre sabe lo que necesitáis antes que vosotros le pidáis.

I have heard some prayers that sound as if the person praying is giving a sermon instead of talking with God. I have heard some that are the same over and over. Do we really think God hears those? If your child was talking to you and saying the same thing over and over in a meaningless way, how would you react? God wants us to have an intimacy and be close to Him.

Titus 2:7-8

In all things showing yourself a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is an opponent may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

 muéstrate en todo como ejemplo de buenas obras, con pureza de doctrina, con dignidad, con palabra sana e irreprochable, a fin de que el adversario se avergüence al no tener nada malo que decir de nosotros.

No matter what someone may be saying about us, if we follow this Word of God, all will work out. God will keep us and lead us. If this is always our intention, God will be with us.
