I want to apologize that I have not posted lately. I have been busy freelancing and have neglected the most important part of life…God.
Please forgive me.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
Nadie os engañe con palabras vanas; porque por estas cosas viene la ira de Dios sobre los hijos de desobediencia. No seáis, pues, partícipes con ellos.
Porque en otro tiempo erais tinieblas, mas ahora sois luz en el Señor: Andad como hijos de luz (porque el fruto del Espíritu es en toda bondad, justicia y verdad), aprobando lo que es agradable al Señor
There are many who will try to lead us down the wrong road. We are not to “buy” into their misleading words and actions. We know the truth. The Word carries it.
Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled.
Seguid la paz con todos, y la santidad, sin la cual nadie verá al Señor: Mirando bien que ninguno se aparte de la gracia de Dios, que ninguna raíz de amargura brotando os impida, y por ella muchos sean contaminados.
I really needed this scripture. I know that I often finding myself wanting to “tear the head” off of some people, but Jesus did not teach us to be that way. He taught the opposite. I will bask in His peace and I seek His will. It is only by doing so that I can live a fruitful life. All praise to JESUS!
I just wanted to share something that Maggie and I watched last night.
It was the story of a great Christian musician who went to be with Jesus in 1997. The movie is called A Ragamuffin’s Legacy. It is about Rich Mullins.
I highly recommend you see this movie.
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matt 25:40
Now, I am going to share one of my favorite Rich Mullins songs.
Be blessed by Jesus and have a great week!
Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment. For we all stumble in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well. Now if we put the bits into the horses’ mouths so that they will obey us, we direct their entire body as well. Look at the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by strong winds, are still directed by a very small rudder wherever the inclination of the pilot desires. So also the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it boasts of great things.
See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell. For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way.
Hermanos míos, no os hagáis muchos maestros, sabiendo que recibiremos mayor condenación. Porque todos ofendemos en muchas cosas. Si alguno no ofende en palabra, éste es varón perfecto, capaz también de refrenar todo el cuerpo. He aquí nosotros ponemos frenos en la boca de los caballos para que nos obedezcan, y gobernamos todo su cuerpo. Mirad también las naves; aunque tan grandes, y llevadas de impetuosos vientos, son gobernadas con un muy pequeño timón por donde quiere el que las gobierna. Así también la lengua es un miembro muy pequeño, pero se jacta de grandes cosas. He aquí, un pequeño fuego, ¡cuán grande bosque enciende! Y la lengua es un fuego, un mundo de maldad. Así es la lengua entre nuestros miembros; contamina todo el cuerpo, e inflama la rueda de la creación, y es inflamada del infierno. Porque toda naturaleza de bestias, y de aves, y de serpientes, y de seres del mar se doma, y ha sido domada por la naturaleza humana; pero ningún hombre puede domar la lengua; que es un mal sin freno, llena de veneno mortal. Con ella bendecimos al Dios y Padre; y con ella maldecimos a los hombres, que son hechos a la semejanza de Dios. De una misma boca proceden maldición y bendición. Hermanos míos, esto no debe ser así.
Great is the power of our speech. If we really consider the complete matter, God made us in His image, and God spoke all things into existence. We can build up or we can destroy with the most powerful weapon in the world…our speech.
I have been guilty of saying things I should have not, and I also have had things said to me that hurt deeply.
I call upon all who claim Jesus as Lord…think before you speak. Think before you type. If cruel words are spoken to you, think before reacting.
God bless you all.
Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Este libro de la ley nunca se apartará de tu boca, sino que de día y de noche meditarás en él, para que guardes y hagas conforme a todo lo que en él está escrito; porque entonces harás prosperar tu camino, y todo te saldrá bien. Mira que te mando que te esfuerces y seas valiente; no temas ni desmayes, porque Jehová tu Dios estará contigo dondequiera que vayas.
If we maintain studying God’s Word, as it says here in Joshua…Day and Night, we will prosper and succeed. Not necessarily as the world thinks of success, but as God determines success.
Yes, we must stand strong and be courageous. We can not be apathetic and allow satan to push us to the left and right.
May God bless you.
Are you getting prepared?
I must be honest and admit that I have been apathetic as are many others.
It is easy to assume that all the various things happening in the world have happened before, and they will happen again. We see weather acting as we have never seen. We have watched evil winning the minds of humans. It is as the days of Noah.
How long will God allow this?
The Bible tells us that no man will know the day of the Lord, but in the verses surrounding, it also tells us we should know the season when His Judgment is imminent. Well…..
The season is now!
I will put the scripture Maggie and I read this morning and then scroll down, because there is more.
“At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream. And someone said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, “How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?” And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished. I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, “O my lord, what shall be the outcome of these things?” He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand. And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days. Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days. But go your way till the end. And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.”
En aquel tiempo se levantará Miguel, el gran príncipe que vela sobre los hijos de tu pueblo. Será un tiempo de angustia cual nunca hubo desde que existen las naciones hasta entonces; y en ese tiempo tu pueblo será librado, todos los que se encuentren inscritos en el libro. Y muchos de los que duermen en el polvo de la tierra despertarán, unos para la vida eterna, y otros para la ignominia, para el desprecio eterno. Los entendidos brillarán como el resplandor del firmamento, y los que guiaron a muchos a la justicia, como las estrellas, por siempre jamás. Pero tú, Daniel, guarda en secreto estas palabras y sella el libro hasta el tiempo del fin. Muchos correrán de aquí para allá, y el conocimiento aumentará.
Entonces yo, Daniel, miré, y he aquí otros dos estaban de pie, uno a este lado del río, y el otro al otro lado del río. Y uno de ellos dijo al hombre vestido de lino que estaba sobre las aguas del río: ¿Para cuándo será el fin de estas maravillas? Y oí al hombre vestido de lino, que estaba sobre las aguas del río, que levantando su mano derecha y su mano izquierda al cielo, juró por aquel que vive para siempre, que será por un tiempo, tiempos y la mitad de un tiempo ; y cuando se termine la destrucción del poder del pueblo santo, se cumplirán todas estas cosas . Yo oí, pero no pude entender. Entonces dije: Señor mío, ¿cuál será el resultado de estas cosas? Y él respondió: Anda, Daniel, porque estas palabras están cerradas y selladas hasta el tiempo del fin. Muchos serán purificados, emblanquecidos y refinados; los impíos procederán impíamente, y ninguno de los impíos comprenderá, pero los entendidos comprenderán. Y desde el tiempo en que el sacrificio perpetuo sea abolido y puesta la abominación de la desolación, habrá mil doscientos noventa días. Bienaventurado el que espere y llegue a mil trescientos treinta y cinco días. Mas tú, sigue hasta el fin; descansarás y te levantarás para recibir tu heredad al fin de los días.
A recent enlightenment
Maggie discovered a video by a Pastor of a church from the area I came to Puerto Rico from.
Passion For Truth Ministries is in St Charles, Missouri. Pastor Jim Staley in the video I am about to share opened my eyes, and I believe your heart and eyes will be opened too.
The subject is CERN. CERN are the people who are firing up the device that is meant to recreate the Big Bang. It is now spinning, and what will happen next could cause havoc and chaos, or maybe nothing, but we need to prepare.
Does preparation mean getting guns and hand grenades? Does it mean storing food and water?
The answer is NO!
There is only one way to prepare for the possibility of demons being released upon the Earth…that preparation is the only One who can defeat it….Jesus Christ….God in the form of the Son. God the Father gives the Son power via God the Holy Spirit.
Preparation is in the mirror and the knees.
We need to pour our lives down to the feet of Him who can save and protect us. It is only prayer and the Word of God that can help us….nothing else.
So, are you preparing?
Watch the video and see.
May God save those who call upon Him!
And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying,
Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require: That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else. Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
Y sucedió que cuando Salomón terminó de decir toda esta oración y súplica al SEÑOR, se levantó de delante del altar del SEÑOR, de estar de rodillas con sus manos extendidas hacia el cielo. Y se puso de pie y bendijo a toda la asamblea de Israel en alta voz, diciendo: Bendito sea el SEÑOR, que ha dado reposo a su pueblo Israel, conforme a todo lo que prometió; ninguna palabra ha fallado de toda su buena promesa que hizo por medio de su siervo Moisés. Que el SEÑOR nuestro Dios esté con nosotros, como estuvo con nuestros padres; que no nos deje ni nos abandone, para que incline nuestro corazón hacia El, para que andemos en todos sus caminos y para que guardemos sus mandamientos, sus estatutos y sus preceptos que ordenó a nuestros padres. Y que estas palabras mías, con las que he suplicado delante del SEÑOR, estén cerca del SEÑOR nuestro Dios día y noche, para que El haga justicia a su siervo y justicia a su pueblo Israel, según las necesidades de cada día, a fin de que todos los pueblos de la tierra sepan que el SEÑOR es Dios; no hay otro. Estén, pues, vuestros corazones enteramente dedicados al SEÑOR nuestro Dios, para que andemos en sus estatutos y guardemos sus mandamientos, como en este día.
Solomon showed us here how we can come to God in a way that is pleasing to our Maker. He does hear us as long as we walk as sons and daughters of Him. We must always support God’s people Israel no matter what the world tells us. We also must always be willing to claim Him in everything. As the last 2 verses say…there is no other God, and our hearts must be right and perfect before Him. How is your heart with God?
Some of you know all the happenings in my life over the last years, and some do not. Either way, I am not going to go into full detail, but I do invite you to read Pawpaw’s Dream.
Please keep in mind that Elijah has been adopted by a family in the St Louis area, but essentially, I have no idea how he is doing. I pray often for this young boy that I love dearly.
I wish he was with me!
I know that God is protecting him!
Because I have prayed and prayed over this boy. I will keep praying and praying over him, and I know that God put him here.
Today I was looking at this recent picture I received from him. Look in his eyes…I see Saturn and Venus….and as of late, if you look into the sky at night, Saturn and Venus are visible.
Did you read Pawpaw’s dream?
Maybe you will consider me crazy, but so did the people consider many who were validated by God.
God is going to provide justice!
When the sky looks like my grandson’s eyes—Saturn and Venus aligned….JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL!
Woe to those who consider this rubbish, because rubbish will be their bed. Woe to those who harm children, because fire will be on their head.
We have all had the opportunity to decide. Is Jesus your King?
Only the Father knows the return, but He has given us signs of retribution…and the alignment of Saturn and Venus will give fire and ice as only God could give.
Stay Strong in the Spirit of the Almighty One!
Colossians 1: 21-22
And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.
For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.
Porque el que estima de sí que es algo, no siendo nada, á sí mismo se engaña. Así que cada uno examine su obra, y entonces tendrá gloria sólo respecto de sí mismo, y no en otro. Porque cada cual llevará su carga.
No matter what, no man or woman is better than the next. No matter where we have been, what we are doing or anything of such nature, we are all nothing. We all only have one way to Heaven because no matter what we have done, be it what we consider good or bad…none of us have, or ever can do enough good to go to Heaven. It is only God’s Grace that can take us to Heaven. It is only by the Blood of Jesus. There is only one thing we can do to get there–accept the free gift. If you have already…Praise God. If you haven’t, the time is now. It is as simple as just Thanking Jesus for dying for you, and asking Him into your life. He stands before you now waiting. Just ask.
If you aren’t sure if a brother or sister has accepted Jesus, please share it with them.
