1 Corinthians 15:3-8

3I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. 4He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. 5He was seen by Peterc and then by the Twelve. 6After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followersd at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. 7Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles. 8Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him.

3 Porque yo os entregué en primer lugar lo mismo que recibí: que Cristo murió por nuestros pecados, conforme a las Escrituras; 4 que fue sepultado y que resucitó al tercer día, conforme a las Escrituras; 5 que se apareció a Cefas y después a los doce; 6 luego se apareció a más de quinientos hermanos a la vez, la mayoría de los cuales viven aún, pero algunos ya duermen; 7 después se apareció a Jacobo, luego a todos los apóstoles, 8 y al último de todos, como a uno nacido fuera de tiempo, se me apareció también a mí.

Jesus is risen. Today is Easter, and Jesus is risen. He has shown Himself to all of us if we just look. Get out there today and worship Him. He deserves all worship.

Luke 1:68-69

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he has visited and redeemed his people, And has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David

Bendito sea el Señor, Dios de Israel, porque nos ha visitado y ha efectuado redención para su pueblo, y nos ha levantado un cuerno de salvación en la casa de David su siervo

Luke speaks here of Jesus. We celebrate His life and death and life this weekend. He offers us new life in Him and that is what Easter is all about. All people bow before Jesus who is God.

Psalm 37:23-31

23The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delights in his way.

24Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholds him with his hand.נ

25I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

26He is ever merciful, and lends; and his seed is blessed.ס

27Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for ever more.

28For the LORD loves judgment, and forsakes not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

29The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.פ

30The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, and his tongue talks of judgment.

31The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

23 Por el SEÑOR son ordenados los pasos del hombre,
y el SEÑOR se deleita en su camino.
24 Cuando caiga, no quedará derribado,
porque el SEÑOR sostiene su mano.
25 Yo fui joven, y ya soy viejo,
y no he visto al justo desamparado,
ni a su descendencia mendigando pan.
26 Todo el día es compasivo y presta,
y su descendencia es para bendición.
27 Apártate del mal y haz el bien,
y tendrás morada para siempre.
28 Porque el SEÑOR ama la justicia,
y no abandona a sus santos;
ellos son preservados para siempre,
pero la descendencia de los impíos será exterminada.
29 Los justos poseerán la tierra,
y para siempre morarán en ella.
30 La boca del justo profiere sabiduría
y su lengua habla rectitud.
31 La ley de su Dios está en su corazón;
no vacilan sus pasos.

What a wonderful promise from my Father! He upholds us through hard and rough waters. He is always with us. This is Good Friday and we have a great and wonderful God in three persons-Our Father, His Son: Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. Praise our Triune God! Worship at His Holy hill. Thanks be to God!

James 1:25

But whoever looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues in it, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Pero el que mira atentamente a la ley perfecta, la ley de la libertad, y permanece en ella, no habiéndose vuelto un oidor olvidadizo sino un hacedor eficaz, éste será bienaventurado en lo que hace.

The law of liberty doesn’t mean we do whatever we please; it means we do whatever God wants. Following His will should always be our utmost priority. God will bless us as long as we do.

John 15:23

He that hates me hates my Father also.

El que me odia a mí, odia también a mi Padre.

There are many factions that claim God the Father, but not Jesus the Son of God. Do they realize this verse that Jesus said? Jesus is God the Son and if we deny Him, we deny the Father.

Mark 16:15

And he said unto them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura.

We are commissioned to tell the world what Jesus did for us. Are we? Are we telling all? It is our responsibility and we will answer to Him if we were or were not. How will you answer?

Isaiah 33:13-16

13Listen to what I have done, you nations far away!

And you that are near, acknowledge my might!”

14The sinners in Jerusalem shake with fear.

Terror seizes the godless.

“Who can live with this devouring fire?” they cry.

“Who can survive this all-consuming fire?”

15Those who are honest and fair,

who refuse to profit by fraud,

who stay far away from bribes,

who refuse to listen to those who plot murder,

who shut their eyes to all enticement to do wrong—

16these are the ones who will dwell on high.

The rocks of the mountains will be their fortress.

Food will be supplied to them,

and they will have water in abundance.

13 Oíd, los que estáis lejos, lo que he hecho;
y los que estáis cerca, reconoced mi poder.
14 Aterrados están los pecadores en Sion,
el temblor se ha apoderado de los impíos.
¿Quién de nosotros habitará con el fuego consumidor?
¿Quién de nosotros habitará con las llamas eternas?
15 El que anda en justicia y habla con sinceridad,
el que rehúsa la ganancia injusta,
y se sacude las manos para que no retengan soborno;
el que se tapa los oídos para no oír de derramamiento de sangre,
y cierra los ojos para no ver el mal;
16 ése morará en las alturas,
en la peña inexpugnable estará su refugio;
se le dará su pan,
y tendrá segura su agua.

We are to maintain are good. Just because everyone else is doing wrong doesn’t make it ok. If we stand strong on the right actions, God will bless us!

Romans 14:1-4

1Him that is weak in the faith receive you, but not to doubtful disputations. 2For one believes that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eats herbs. 3Let not him that eats despise him that eats not; and let not him which eats not judge him that eats: for God has received him. 4Who are you that judge another man’s servant? to his own master he stands or falls. Yes, he shall be held up: for God is able to make him stand.

1 Aceptad al que es débil en la fe, pero no para juzgar sus opiniones. 2 Uno tiene fe en que puede comer de todo, pero el que es débil sólo come legumbres. 3 El que come no menosprecie al que no come, y el que no come no juzgue al que come, porque Dios lo ha aceptado. 4 ¿Quién eres tú para juzgar al criado de otro? Para su propio amo está en pie o cae, y en pie se mantendrá, porque poderoso es el Señor para sostenerlo en pie.

Many times, a new believer walks away because “old believers” try to throw law after law at them. Let the Holy Spirit do the work with new believers. It is not our place to judge them and tell them “how” to do it. God works with each of us in slightly different ways and we need to allow Him to. As long as a person confesses Jesus is Lord of their life, give them love and encouragement and God will do the rest.

Colossians 3:23

And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men

Y todo lo que hagáis, hacedlo de corazón, como para el Señor y no para los hombres

If we treat everything we do as if it is done for God, we will do it with passion and with pride. No matter what, if we do this, God will bless us.

Psalm 100

1{A Psalm of praise.} Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

2Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

1 Aclamad con júbilo al SEÑOR, toda la tierra.
2 Servid al SEÑOR con alegría;
venid ante El con cánticos de júbilo.
3 Sabed que El, el SEÑOR, es Dios;
El nos hizo, y no nosotros a nosotros mismos;
pueblo suyo somos y ovejas de su prado.

4 Entrad por sus puertas con acción de gracias,
y a sus atrios con alabanza.
Dadle gracias, bendecid su nombre.
5 Porque el SEÑOR es bueno;
para siempre es su misericordia,
y su fidelidad por todas las generaciones.

It is a great and wonderful thing to sing praises unto God. He is magnificent, and we were made to praise Him—SING UNTO GOD!!!!
