Ephesians 5: 6-10

Hello all,

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.

Ephesians 5: 15-17

Happy Thanksgiving!

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Por tanto, tened cuidado cómo andáis; no como insensatos, sino como sabios,  aprovechando bien el tiempo, porque los días son malos.  Así pues, no seáis necios, sino entended cuál es la voluntad del Señor

It is by the Bible, God’s Word and through prayer that we can walk in wisdom. The world and others may try to make us seem like fools, but as long as we stay in Him, He will carry us thru. The days ARE evil.

Ephesians 6:12

View the inspirational video One Solitary Life by Simple Truths

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Porque nuestra lucha no es contra sangre y carne, sino contra principados, contra potestades, contra los poderes de este mundo de tinieblas, contra las huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestiales

We must always remember this scripture when we are tempted to argue or debate against people who are lost. We are not battling against people, but against forces that control them. We can only defeat these forces through prayer and the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Give the battle to God, and you will win!

Ephesians 1:18-23

18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

18 Mi oración es que los ojos de vuestro corazón sean iluminados, para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza de su llamamiento, cuáles son las riquezas de la gloria de su herencia en los santos, 19 y cuál es la extraordinaria grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, conforme a la eficacia de la fuerza de su poder, 20 el cual obró en Cristo cuando le resucitó de entre los muertos y le sentó a su diestra en los lugares celestiales, 21 muy por encima de todo principado, autoridad, poder, dominio y de todo nombre que se nombra, no sólo en este siglo sino también en el venidero. 22 Y todo sometió bajo sus pies, y a El lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia, 23 la cual es su cuerpo, la plenitud de aquel que lo llena todo en todo.

Do we always realize just how much power and might our Lord Jesus has? God raised Him from the dead and gave Him all. He loves us and wants the very best for us. Why don’t we allow Him to work in our lives? Why is our faith so small at times? Trust in Jesus; He can and will do the best for us.

Ephesians 3: 16-19

16that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that ye may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 17that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may be strong to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled unto all the fulness of God.

16 Le ruego que El les conceda a ustedes, conforme a las riquezas de Su gloria, el ser fortalecidos con poder por Su Espíritu en el hombre interior; 17 de manera que Cristo habite por la fe en sus corazones. También ruego que arraigados y cimentados en amor, 18 ustedes sean capaces de comprender con todos los santos cuál es la anchura, la longitud, la altura y la profundidad, 19 y de conocer el amor de Cristo que sobrepasa el conocimiento, para que sean llenos hasta la medida de toda la plenitud de Dios.

If we stay strong in God’s Word and in His Son, Jesus Christ, everything will work in our lives for the best. Sometimes it may not seem the best at the time, but trust God. Months or even years later, you will look back and realize it was the best. God’s love is amazing and He wants His children to have the best of His creations.

Ephesians 4:4-6

4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as also ye were called in one hope of your calling; 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.

4 Hay un solo cuerpo y un solo Espíritu, así como también ustedes fueron llamados en una misma esperanza de su vocación; 5 un solo Señor, una sola fe, un solo bautismo, 6 un solo Dios y Padre de todos, que está sobre todos, por todos y en todos.

As times seem very difficult right now, I know that I still must worship and do God’s will. By trusting God, only good will come. If I trust in anything else, it is bound to fail. Yes, there is only one God and Lord of all. He is in three persons, but one. All praise be to God!

Ephesians 2:4-7

4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) 6And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

4 Pero Dios, que es rico en misericordia, por causa del gran amor con que nos amó, 5 aun cuando estábamos muertos en nuestros delitos, nos dio vida juntamente con Cristo (por gracia habéis sido salvados), 6 y con El nos resucitó, y con El nos sentó en los lugares celestiales en Cristo Jesús, 7 a fin de poder mostrar en los siglos venideros las sobreabundantes riquezas de su gracia por su bondad para con nosotros en Cristo Jesús

God’s great plan calls for us all to have the opportunity to be saved. He knows what we will choose, and even if we were still leading a sinful life, He chose and helps us get past the sin and into a relationship with Jesus. His grace is amazing. Rejoice in God!

Ephesians 3:16-19

16That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

16 que os conceda, conforme a las riquezas de su gloria, ser fortalecidos con poder por su Espíritu en el hombre interior; 17 de manera que Cristo more por la fe en vuestros corazones; y que arraigados y cimentados en amor, 18 seáis capaces de comprender con todos los santos cuál es la anchura, la longitud, la altura y la profundidad, 19 y de conocer el amor de Cristo que sobrepasa el conocimiento, para que seáis llenos hasta la medida de toda la plenitud de Dios.

Our strength and wisdom comes from God. No school or book can give us the way to manage life. It is a lie to think so! Our breath and being comes from God, and by His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, we have life, love and liberty. Claim it, for it is yours. All you need do is accept Him. Praise our Holy God!

Ephesians 6:1-3

1Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

1 Hijos, obedeced a vuestros padres en el Señor, porque esto es justo. 2 HONRA A TU PADRE Y A tu MADRE (que es el primer mandamiento con promesa), 3 PARA QUE TE VAYA BIEN, Y PARA QUE TENGAS LARGA VIDA SOBRE LA TIERRA.

No matter our age, our parents are wiser. We must heed their words and God will bless us. I look back at the times that I didn’t listen to my parents and I see how things went wrong. If I would have listened, the outcomes would have been better. God is our ultimate parent and this scripture also speaks to us in obeying Him. If we do, long and fruitful life will be given to us.

Ephesians 2:8-10

For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.

Porque por gracia habéis sido salvados por medio de la fe, y esto no de vosotros, sino que es don de Dios; no por obras, para que nadie se gloríe. Porque somos hechura suya, creados en Cristo Jesús para hacer buenas obras, las cuales Dios preparó de antemano para que anduviéramos en ellas.

There is nothing we can do, other than accepting the free gift from God, to get us to heaven. Good works don’t get us there, but good works come when we have Jesus in our heart. We will want to do good, if Jesus is truly in our hearts.
