Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dies, says the Lord GOD: therefore turn yourselves, and live.
Arrojad de vosotros todas las transgresiones que habéis cometido, y haceos un corazón nuevo y un espíritu nuevo. ¿Por qué habéis de morir, casa de Israel? Pues yo no me complazco en la muerte de nadie –declara el Señor DIOS–. Arrepentíos y vivid.
God doesn’t want us dying. It hurts God to see us hurt. We cause it ourselves with our sins and transgressions. If we seek God and turn, He will bless us and death will not be. Believe it!!!
And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.
Y les dijo: Estad atentos y guardaos de toda forma de avaricia; porque aun cuando alguien tenga abundancia, su vida no consiste en sus bienes.
It is very easy to get caught up in wanting what other people have; that process is not of God. There is more to life than what we have. Its all about Jesus: all of it.
For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
Porque con alegría saldréis, y con paz seréis conducidos; los montes y las colinas prorrumpirán en gritos de júbilo delante de vosotros, y todos los árboles del campo batirán palmas. En lugar del espino crecerá el ciprés, y en lugar de la ortiga crecerá el mirto; y esto será para gloria del SEÑOR, para señal eterna que nunca será borrada.
When we follow God’s path for our lives, this promise from Isaiah can be for us. This prophecy speaks of our Lord and Savior, Jesus., but we can also have this response from the earth and nature. By listening to the Holy Spirit and following God’s plan, He will bless us. Praise Him with singing!
The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand forever.
Sécase la hierba, marchítase la flor, mas la palabra del Dios nuestro permanece para siempre.
God’s Word is alive and will never die. We will all die, but His Word goes on and on. His Word is what made all and is all.
For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
Porque nada podemos hacer contra la verdad, sino sólo a favor de la verdad.
No matter what we or anyone else does, truth reigns! A person can lie and lie and the truth will prevail. We are alive in God because of truth and love.
My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly. The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty has given me life.
Mis palabras proceden de la rectitud de mi corazón, y con sinceridad mis labios hablan lo que saben. El Espíritu de Dios me ha hecho, y el aliento del Todopoderoso me da vida.
Oh that my words also will glorify God at all times. I pray that His knowledge and wisdom envelops me at all times. God is all to me. I hope He is also your everything!
Then the king said unto me, For what do you make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven.
El rey me dijo: ¿Qué es lo que pides? Entonces oré al Dios del cielo
Nehemiah shows us here how we should always react when questioned or have a decision to make: Prayer. By praying to God, our minds will receive His Spirit to guide us in the best answer or proper choice.
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Respondiendo Jesús, les dijo: Los sanos no tienen necesidad de médico, sino los que están enfermos. No he venido a llamar a justos, sino a pecadores al arrepentimiento.
We get so caught up in just the people within the church that are supposedly already saved. Are we out trying to reach the lost? I will try more, will you? Praise our Holy Lord!
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
Es mejor refugiarse en el SEÑOR que confiar en el hombre. Es mejor refugiarse en el SEÑOR que confiar en príncipes.
Sometimes we tend to put other humans in a place where they are “in a way” worshiped. When they make a mistake or fail, it brings us into a distrusting place. Our confidence and trust needs to be in God, and God only. Man will let us down in many ways, but God will lift us up.
18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
18 Si es posible, en cuanto de vosotros dependa, estad en paz con todos los hombres. 19 Amados, nunca os venguéis vosotros mismos, sino dad lugar a la ira de Dios, porque escrito está: MIA ES LA VENGANZA, YO PAGARE, dice el Señor. 20 PERO SI TU ENEMIGO TIENE HAMBRE, DALE DE COMER; Y SI TIENE SED, DALE DE BEBER, PORQUE HACIENDO ESTO, CARBONES ENCENDIDOS AMONTONARAS SOBRE SU CABEZA. 21 No seas vencido por el mal, sino vence con el bien el mal.
It is sometimes very difficult to live around others. It all comes through the power of God. We must always try to live in love for all mankind, no matter what. Love the person and not the sin.
