Titus 3:8

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

Palabra fiel es ésta , y en cuanto a estas cosas quiero que hables con firmeza, para que los que han creído en Dios procuren ocuparse en buenas obras. Estas cosas son buenas y útiles para los hombres.

Works don’t save us, only the grace of God saves us, but works are a part of what shows when we are saved. God will use us to show unsaved the way to everlasting life. That is why we are to maintain good works. All will work together to fulfill the Kingdom. God is with us if we just listen and obey Him.

Job 28:28

And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Y dijo al hombre: ‘El temor (La reverencia) del Señor es sabiduría, Y apartarse del mal, inteligencia.

Some wise words from Job. It is really so simple. We must fear God and depart from all evil. Thoughts, deeds and any evil thing must be out from us. God will bless us if we live as such. If we do slip up, if we repent, He will forgive, but we should always be striving to be perfect.

Psalm 95

1Oh come, let us sing unto Jehovah; Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

2Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; Let us make a joyful noise unto him with

3For Jehovah is a great God, And a great King above all gods.

4In his hand are the deep places of the earth; The heights of the mountains are his also.

5The sea is his, and he made it; And his hands formed the dry land.

6Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before Jehovah our Maker:

7For he is our God, And we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To-day, oh that ye would hear his voice!

8Harden not your heart, as at Meribah, As in the day of Massah in the wilderness;

9When your fathers tempted me, Proved me, and saw my work.

10Forty years long was I grieved with that generation, And said, It is a people that do err in their heart, And they have not known my ways:

11Wherefore I sware in my wrath, That they should not enter into my rest.

 

1 Venid, cantemos alegremente a Jehová: Aclamemos con júbilo a la Roca de nuestra salvación. 2 Lleguemos ante su presencia con acción de gracias; aclamémosle con salmos. 3 Porque Jehová es Dios grande; y Rey grande sobre todos los dioses. 4 Porque en su mano están las profundidades de la tierra, y las alturas de los montes son suyas. 5 Suyo también el mar, pues Él lo hizo; y sus manos formaron la tierra seca. 6 Venid, adoremos y postrémonos; arrodillémonos delante de Jehová nuestro Hacedor.

7 Porque Él es nuestro Dios; nosotros el pueblo de su prado, y ovejas de su mano. Si oyereis hoy su voz, 8 no endurezcáis vuestro corazón como en Meriba, como el día de Masah en el desierto; 9 donde me tentaron vuestros padres, me probaron, y vieron mis obras. 10 Cuarenta años estuve disgustado con esta generación, y dije: Pueblo es que divaga de corazón, y no han conocido mis caminos. 11 Por tanto, juré en mi ira que no entrarían en mi reposo.

 

This Psalm is for all of us. Let us all take a lesson from the Psalmist. Worship God and rely on Him. He will not leave us. Let us bow down and worship Him.

Psalm 77:1-3

1I will cry unto God with my voice, Even unto God with my voice; and he will give ear unto me.

2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not; My soul refused to be comforted.

3I remember God, and am disquieted: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed. Selah

1  Con mi voz clamé a Dios, a Dios clamé, y Él me escuchó. 2 Al Señor busqué en el día de mi angustia; mi mal corría de noche y no cesaba; mi alma rehusó el consuelo. 3 Me acordaba de Dios, y me turbaba; me quejaba, y desmayaba mi espíritu. (Selah)

Sometimes it feels like God is far away. He isn’t, it could be we are far away from Him. When we cry out, He hears us. I needed this today, and I believe there are others who also needed this Word. Be quiet and know that God is Lord and will take care of us.

Mark 16:15-16

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura. El que crea y sea bautizado será salvo; pero el que no crea será condenado.

We have a job to do. We need to tell all. It is quite clear in this passage that baptism is an outward sign that you believe and trust in Jesus. You say you believe, but have you shown it to the world by being baptized? It is important. Some preachers may claim it is not, but this scripture does point out it is. Get baptized and show the world your stand!

This is a great video:

Ezekiel 7:23-27

23Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence. 24Why I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled. 25Destruction comes; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none. 26Mischief shall come on mischief, and rumor shall be on rumor; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients. 27The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do to them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

23 Haz una cadena, porque la tierra está llena de crímenes sangrientos, y la ciudad está llena de violencia. 24 Traeré, por tanto, a los más malos de las naciones, los cuales poseerán sus casas; y haré cesar la soberbia de los poderosos, y sus santuarios serán profanados. 25 Destrucción viene; y buscarán la paz, y no la habrá. 26 Quebrantamiento vendrá sobre quebrantamiento, y rumor será sobre rumor; y buscarán respuesta del profeta, pero la ley se alejará del sacerdote, y el consejo de los ancianos. 27 El rey se enlutará, y el príncipe se vestirá de asolamiento, y las manos del pueblo de la tierra serán conturbadas; según su camino haré con ellos, y con los juicios de ellos los juzgaré; y sabrán que yo soy Jehová.

This scripture kind of gives a picture of the world today. At some point God will just back away and let destruction fall upon the people. Is that what mankind really wants. Is the only way for mankind to know that God is God, to go through total chaos and destruction? Awaken people! Bow to God, worship Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to guide and lead you. He is the only way to peace and joy!

1 Corinthians 9:18-19

What is my reward then? That preaching the gospel, I may deliver the gospel without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For whereas I was free as to all, I made myself the servant of all, that I might gain the more.

¿Cuál es, entonces, mi recompensa? Que al predicar el evangelio, pueda ofrecerlo gratuitamente sin hacer pleno uso de mi derecho en el evangelio. Porque aunque soy libre de todos, de todos me he hecho esclavo para ganar al mayor número posible.

Our reward is watching more come to the knowledge that their only way to salvation is Jesus Christ. We don’t ask payment, nor goods, we just want Jesus and our Father God glorified and worshiped. We are not masters if we show the way, we are servants. Let’s serve our fellow man.

I want to lift up Father God, those who lost loved ones in the devastation in Moore, Oklahoma. Please comfort them. We do not understand why, but you know Lord. Our trust is in You. Let your Kingdom come.

Psalm 107:8-13

8Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him: and his wonderful works to the children of men.

9For he hath satisfied the empty soul, and hath filled the hungry soul with good things.

10Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death: bound in want and in iron.

11Because they had exasperated the words of God: and provoked the counsel of the most High:

12And their heart was humbled with labours: they were weakened, and their was none to help them.

13Then they cried to the Lord in their affliction: and he delivered them out of their distresses.

 

8 Alaben al SEÑOR por su misericordia; y sus maravillas para con los hijos de los hombres.

9 Porque sació al alma menesterosa, y llenó de bien al alma hambrienta.

10 Los que moraban en tinieblas y sombra de muerte aprisionados, en aflicción y en hierros,

11 por cuanto fueron rebeldes a las palabras del SEÑOR, y aborrecieron el consejo del Altísimo.

12 Por eso quebrantó él con trabajo sus corazones, cayeron y no hubo quién los ayudase.

13 Luego que clamaron al SEÑOR en su angustia, los libró de sus aflicciones.

 

God makes it so easy. Just like a perfect Father, He just wants you to cry out to Him. He will save you from misery if you seek Him. It doesn’t mean everything will be easy, but with God holding you, He will show you the path that will be best for you.

2 Corinthians 1:4-6

4Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. 6And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

4 el cual nos consuela en todas nuestras tribulaciones, para que podamos nosotros consolar a los que están en cualquier angustia, con la consolación con que nosotros mismos somos consolados de Dios. 5 Porque de la manera que abundan en nosotros las aflicciones de Cristo, así abunda también por Cristo nuestra consolación. 6 Pues si somos atribulados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación; la cual es eficaz para soportar las mismas aflicciones que nosotros también padecemos; o si somos consolados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación.

There has been a problem at times when one Christian seeing another one facing difficulties. It could be a bad medical issue, house burns, car breaks down, etc… The tendency is to say they are doing something wrong. This is not always the case. Sometimes God allows bad things to happen to His people for His Glory. Take a look at Job; he was completely righteous, but he had everything taken from him. He kept praising God and in the end, he was rewarded. Just because someone has cancer, or a child died, or some other bad thing happened, it doesn’t mean God is attacking that person. He has a plan, and it is way beyond any of our plans, thoughts and ideas. Be careful what you say and do; because God will judge you on them in time.

Ezekiel 18:31-32

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.

This Word of God is just as alive now as it was then. If we all turn, we can live. God has given us a very simple way, thru His Son Jesus Christ.
