2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.


Pero con respecto a la venida de nuestro Señor Jesucristo y a nuestra reunión con El, les rogamos, hermanos, que no sean sacudidos fácilmente en su modo de pensar, ni se alarmen, ni por espíritu, ni por palabra, ni por carta como si fuera de nosotros, en el sentido de que el día del Señor ha llegado. Que nadie los engañe en ninguna manera, porque no vendrá sin que primero venga la apostasía y sea revelado el hombre de pecado, el hijo de perdición. Este se opone y se exalta sobre todo lo que se llama dios o es objeto de culto, de manera que se sienta en el templo de Dios, presentándose como si fuera Dios.


Many think that this great falling away is people walking away from church. Could it be that churches themselves are falling away? That the Preachers and Pastors are “watering down” the Word? That they are more worried about having every seat full than telling the Word of God in fullness and Truth? To be very honest, this is what I see. We dare not hurt someone’s feelings because they are homosexual, or they had an abortion, or they still drink alcohol like fish or do drugs…at least they are in church. We better not preach about that this week because they may not come back.  Hey people, church is not a “feel good place”. It is where we come to worship Our Lord and Father and learn how we are supposed to walk, talk, and live. If I go to church and never feel conviction, I believe there is something wrong. If the Holy Spirit isn’t allowed in, that is a falling away. Yes, satan inhabits churches too. So where are you at with this? Where am I? Where is the church we go to?

As so many say….Just sayin

Nehemiah 5:1-13

1Now there arose a great outcry of the people and of their wives against their Jewish brothers. 2For there were those who said, “With our sons and our daughters, we are many. So let us get grain, that we may eat and keep alive.” 3There were also those who said, “We are mortgaging our fields, our vineyards, and our houses to get grain because of the famine.” 4And there were those who said, “We have borrowed money for the king’s tax on our fields and our vineyards. 5Now our flesh is as the flesh of our brothers, our children are as their children. Yet we are forcing our sons and our daughters to be slaves, and some of our daughters have already been enslaved, but it is not in our power to help it, for other men have our fields and our vineyards.”

6I was very angry when I heard their outcry and these words. 7I took counsel with myself, and I brought charges against the nobles and the officials. I said to them, “You are exacting interest, each from his brother.” And I held a great assembly against them 8and said to them, “We, as far as we are able, have bought back our Jewish brothers who have been sold to the nations, but you even sell your brothers that they may be sold to us!” They were silent and could not find a word to say. 9So I said, “The thing that you are doing is not good. Ought you not to walk in the fear of our God to prevent the taunts of the nations our enemies? 10Moreover, I and my brothers and my servants are lending them money and grain. Let us abandon this exacting of interest. 11Return to them this very day their fields, their vineyards, their olive orchards, and their houses, and the percentage of money, grain, wine, and oil that you have been exacting from them.” 12Then they said, “We will restore these and require nothing from them. We will do as you say.” And I called the priests and made them swear to do as they had promised. 13I also shook out the fold of my garment and said, “So may God shake out every man from his house and from his labor who does not keep this promise. So may he be shaken out and emptied.” And all the assembly said “Amen” and praised the Lord. And the people did as they had promised.

1Y hubo gran clamor del pueblo y de sus mujeres contra sus hermanos Judíos. 2Había quienes decían: “Nosotros, nuestros hijos y nuestras hijas somos muchos; por tanto, que se nos dé trigo para que comamos y vivamos.” 3Había otros que decían: “Nosotros tenemos que empeñar nuestros campos, nuestras viñas y nuestras casas para conseguir grano, a causa del hambre.” 4También había otros que decían: “Hemos pedido dinero prestado para el impuesto del rey sobre nuestros campos y nuestras viñas. 5“Ahora bien, nuestra carne es como la carne de nuestros hermanos, y nuestros hijos como sus hijos. Sin embargo, estamos obligando a nuestros hijos y a nuestras hijas a que sean esclavos, y algunas de nuestras hijas ya están sometidas a servidumbre, y no podemos hacer nada porque nuestros campos y nuestras viñas pertenecen a otros.”

6Entonces me enojé en gran manera cuando oí su clamor y estas palabras. 7Se rebeló mi corazón dentro de mí, y reprendí a los nobles y a los oficiales y les dije: “Ustedes están cobrando en exceso cada uno a su hermano.” Por tanto congregué contra ellos una gran asamblea. 8Y les dije: “Nosotros, conforme a nuestras posibilidades, hemos redimido a nuestros hermanos Judíos que fueron vendidos a las naciones; y ahora, ¿venderían ustedes aun a sus hermanos para que sean vendidos a nosotros?” Ellos se quedaron callados y no hallaron respuesta que dar. 9Agregué además: “No está bien lo que hacen. ¿No deben andar en el temor de nuestro Dios a causa del oprobio de las naciones enemigas nuestras? 10“También yo y mis hermanos y mis siervos les hemos prestado dinero y grano. Les ruego, pues, que abandonemos esta usura. 11“Les ruego que hoy mismo les devuelvan sus campos, sus viñas, sus olivares y sus casas; también la centésima parte del dinero y del grano, del vino nuevo y del aceite que están exigiendo de ellos.” 12Entonces ellos dijeron: “Lo devolveremos y no les exigiremos nada; haremos tal como has dicho.” Así que llamé a los sacerdotes y les hice jurar que harían conforme a esta promesa. 13También sacudí los pliegues de mi manto y dije: “Así sacuda Dios de su casa y de sus bienes a todo hombre que no cumpla esta promesa; así sea sacudido y despojado.” Y toda la asamblea dijo: “¡Amén!” Y alabaron al SEÑOR. Entonces el pueblo hizo conforme a esta promesa.

When we as, humans and as Christians, see a wrong being committed against someone who doesn’t deserve it, do we stand by and just allow those who in superior positions to do it?

One of God’s prophets stood ground for the poor and downtrodden. We can learn a lot from Nehemiah.

The fact is: if we know of a wrong being done to another human, and we stand idly by, we are just as guilty of the offense.

If we know of wrongs, we are sinning if we do not take a stand against those wrongs.

This is why I salute all who stand strong on the abortion debate.
