Luke 24: 44-48

Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.

 

Y les dijo: Esto es lo que yo os decía cuando todavía estaba con vosotros: que era necesario que se cumpliera todo lo que sobre mí está escrito en la ley de Moisés, en los profetas y en los salmos.  Entonces les abrió la mente para que comprendieran las Escrituras,  y les dijo: Así está escrito, que el Cristo padeciera y resucitara de entre los muertos al tercer día;  y que en su nombre se predicara el arrepentimiento para el perdón de los pecados a todas las naciones, comenzando desde Jerusalén.  Vosotros sois testigos de estas cosas.

 

Jesus made some mighty promises just before He ascended to the Father. It is our duty and desire to pass our blessing onto others. He has given us the will and power to do so. We cannot allow the world to delegate what we preach about Jesus and His mighty love for us. Lets DO IT! Praise our wonderful Lord!

Psalm 11

In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD’S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.

For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

En el SEÑOR me refugio;
          ¿cómo decís a mi alma: Huye cual ave al monte?
 Porque, he aquí, los impíos tensan el arco,
          preparan su saeta sobre la cuerda
          para flechar en lo oscuro a los rectos de corazón.
 Si los fundamentos son destruidos;
          ¿qué puede hacer el justo?
 El SEÑOR está en su santo templo, el trono del SEÑOR está en los cielos;
          sus ojos contemplan, sus párpados examinan a los hijos de los hombres.
 El SEÑOR prueba al justo y al impío,
          y su alma aborrece al que ama la violencia.
 Sobre los impíos hará llover carbones encendidos;
          fuego, azufre y viento abrasador será la porción de su copa.
 Pues el SEÑOR es justo; El ama la justicia;
          los rectos contemplarán su rostro.

There are days when I also feel the wicked and evil are winning. I then realize that God is in control. There partial victory is only for a very short time. Praise God and His Son. It is by Him that we live and breathe. The evil onesshould fear, but through stupidity, they do not.

1John 5: 4-12

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by his baptism in water and by shedding his blood on the cross—not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with his testimony. So we have these three witnesses— the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree. Since we believe human testimony, surely we can believe the greater testimony that comes from God. And God has testified about his Son. All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don’t believe this are actually calling God a liar because they don’t believe what God has testified about his Son.

And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.

Porque todo lo que es nacido de Dios vence al mundo. Y ésta es la victoria que ha vencido al mundo: nuestra fe.

¿Y quién es el que vence al mundo, sino el que cree que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios? Este es Aquél que vino mediante agua y sangre, Jesucristo; no sólo con agua, sino con agua y con sangre. Y el Espíritu es el que da testimonio, porque el Espíritu es la verdad. Porque tres son los que dan testimonio en el cielo: el Padre, el Verbo (Jesucristo), y el Espíritu Santo, y estos tres son uno. Y tres son los que dan testimonio en la tierra: el Espíritu, el agua, y la sangre, y los tres concuerdan.

Si recibimos el testimonio de los hombres, mayor es el testimonio de Dios; porque éste es el testimonio de Dios: que El ha dado testimonio acerca de Su Hijo. El que cree en el Hijo de Dios tiene el testimonio en sí mismo. El que no cree a Dios, ha hecho a Dios mentiroso, porque no ha creído en el testimonio que Dios ha dado respecto a Su Hijo. Y el testimonio es éste: que Dios nos ha dado vida eterna, y esta vida está en Su Hijo. El que tiene al Hijo tiene la vida, y el que no tiene al Hijo de Dios, no tiene la vida.

It is only through God that we have life. If we seem to be alive, but we do not have Jesus in our hearts, we are dead. Just because a person walks, eats, and sleeps doesn’t mean they are alive. Our life is in the Savior. As we can see through this scripture, it is all based on 3; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Our life is also in 3 if we live; the Spirit, the blood and the water.

Be baptized into the love of Jesus and be willing to let your blood flow for His glory. That is our reason, our duty and shows our devotion.

Praise our Holy God!

1 Timothy 2: 1-4

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Exhorto, pues, ante todo, que se hagan súplicas, oraciones, intercesiones y acciones de gracias, por todos los hombres; por los reyes y por todos los que están en eminencia, para que vivamos quieta y reposadamente en toda piedad y honestidad. Porque esto es bueno y agradable delante de Dios nuestro Salvador, el cual quiere que todos los hombres sean salvos, y vengan al conocimiento de la verdad.

We are to pray for all, not just some. Whether we like the ones who are in government or not, we should still lift them, and their decisions up to God. We cannot assume that God is using them for evil. God has a plan and it is our duty to pray, and let Him be God.

Proverbs 28:20

A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

 

El hombre fiel abundará en bendiciones,
          pero el que se apresura a enriquecerse no quedará sin castigo.

 

Blessings are sometimes thought to be riches or material goods. I have learned there are many more blessings than things like that. Just the birds singing are a blessing. A smile from a little child is a blessing. A salute from a soldier is a blessing. The laughter of our mates is a blessing. Yes, sometimes money or a material item can be a blessing, but only when we realize it came from our Heavenly Father. Many who are rich are miserable, because they are always trying to protect those riches. Yes, Proverbs have many answers, do you read them consistently?

Psalm 102: 1-12

Get the Highest Quality Content… at the Lowest Possible Price!

 

Lord, hear my prayer!

Listen to my plea!

Don’t turn away from me

in my time of distress.

Bend down to listen,

and answer me quickly when I call to you.

For my days disappear like smoke,

and my bones burn like red-hot coals.

My heart is sick, withered like grass,

and I have lost my appetite.

Because of my groaning,

I am reduced to skin and bones.

I am like an owl in the desert,

like a little owl in a far-off wilderness.

I lie awake,

lonely as a solitary bird on the roof.

My enemies taunt me day after day.

They mock and curse me.

I eat ashes for food.

My tears run down into my drink

because of your anger and wrath.

For you have picked me up and thrown me out.

My life passes as swiftly as the evening shadows.

I am withering away like grass.

But you, O Lord, will sit on your throne forever.

Your fame will endure to every generation.

Plegaria de uno que sufre, cuando desmaya y expone su queja ante el SEÑOR. Oh SEÑOR, escucha mi oración, Y llegue a Ti mi clamor.

No escondas de mí Tu rostro en el día de mi angustia; Inclina hacia mí Tu oído; El día en que Te invoco, respóndeme pronto.

Porque mis días han sido consumidos en humo, Y como brasero han sido quemados mis huesos.

Mi corazón ha sido herido como la hierba y se ha secado, Y hasta me olvido de comer mi pan.

A causa de la intensidad de mi gemido Mis huesos se pegan a la piel.

Me parezco al pelícano del desierto; Como el búho de las soledades he llegado a ser.

No puedo dormir; Soy cual pájaro solitario sobre un tejado.

Mis enemigos me han afrentado todo el día; Los que me escarnecen han usado mi nombre como maldición.

Porque he comido cenizas por pan, Y con lágrimas he mezclado mi bebida,

A causa de Tu indignación y de Tu enojo; Pues Tú me has levantado y me has rechazado.

Mis días son como sombra que se alarga; Y yo me seco como la hierba.

Pero Tú, SEÑOR, permaneces para siempre, Y Tu nombre por todas las generaciones.

 

God has a plan. We sometimes just do not comprehend why we face hardships or difficulties, but His plan is true and sure. As we go through difficult times, let’s look upon Jesus and his endurance of the Cross. Nothing we are facing is even close to what He faced.

There is a reason, and our blessings will come. Trust and Faith in the Almighty is our main objective. If we do that, all will be well, because God’s plan will prevail.

Ecclesiastes 11:5

As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

Como no sabes cuál es el camino del viento, O cómo se forman los huesos en el vientre de la mujer encinta, Tampoco conoces la obra de Dios que hace todas las cosas.

There are those times when we think we completely understand God, and we have the world by the tail. It is usually at that moment when things start to come unraveled and fall apart. Why? Because we don’t have it all down pat! If we did, we wouldn’t be on this Earth. Who are we to question God? Who are we to argue with the way He wants things done? Do we know better? God forbid!

Father God, I ask your Holy forgiveness for the times I think my way is better. Please keep guiding and blessing me. Your way is the only way; the only way to glory and true freedom. Oh Father, thank you for your precious love of me.

Matthew 18: 3-6

Acoustic Guitar Lessons

Then he said, “I tell all of you with certainty, unless you change and become like little children, you will never get into the kingdom from heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom from heaven, and whoever receives a little child like this in my name receives me.” If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a large millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned at the bottom of the sea.”

y dijo: En verdad os digo que si no os convertís y os hacéis como niños, no entraréis en el reino de los cielos.  Así pues, cualquiera que se humille como este niño, ése es el mayor en el reino de los cielos.  Y el que reciba a un niño como éste en mi nombre, a mí me recibe.  Pero al que haga tropezar a uno de estos pequeñitos que creen en mí, mejor le sería que le colgaran al cuello una piedra de molino de las que mueve un asno, y que se ahogara en lo profundo del mar.

Children are pure and clean at birth. It is we who teach them to sin. Do we understand the implications of doing that? These words from Jesus tell us the penalty. The next time you are considering using bad language, watching a lustful show, or any other thing that does not give glory to God in front of a child, consider this scripture. Children are the future!

Psalm 80

1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead Joseph like a flock!
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.
2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh,
stir up your might
and come to save us!

3 Restore us,a O God;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!

4 O Lord God of hosts,
how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers?
5 You have fed them with the bread of tears
and given them tears to drink in full measure.
6 You make us an object of contention for our neighbors,
and our enemies laugh among themselves.

7 Restore us, O God of hosts;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!

8 You brought a vine out of Egypt;
you drove out the nations and planted it.
9 You cleared the ground for it;
it took deep root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade,
the mighty cedars with its branches.
11 It sent out its branches to the sea
and its shoots to the River.b
12 Why then have you broken down its walls,
so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
13 The boar from the forest ravages it,
and all that move in the field feed on it.

14 Turn again, O God of hosts!
Look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine,
15 the stock that your right hand planted,
and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.
16 They have burned it with fire; they have cut it down;
may they perish at the rebuke of your face!
17 But let your hand be on the man of your right hand,
the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself!
18 Then we shall not turn back from you;
give us life, and we will call upon your name!

19 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!
Let your face shine, that we may be saved!

1«Al Músico principal: sobre Sosanim-edut: Salmo de Asaf» Oh Pastor de Israel, escucha: Tú que pastoreas como a ovejas a José, que habitas entre querubines, resplandece.

2Despierta tu poder delante de Efraín, y de Benjamín, y de Manasés, y ven a salvarnos.

3Oh Dios, restáuranos; y haz resplandecer tu rostro, y seremos salvos.

4Jehová, Dios de los ejércitos, ¿Hasta cuándo mostrarás indignación contra la oración de tu pueblo?

5Les diste a comer pan de lágrimas, y les diste a beber lágrimas en gran abundancia.

6Nos pusiste por contienda a nuestros vecinos; y nuestros enemigos se burlan entre sí.

7Oh Dios de los ejércitos, restáuranos; haz resplandecer tu rostro, y seremos salvos.

8Hiciste venir una vid de Egipto; echaste las gentes, y la plantaste.

9Preparaste el terreno delante de ella, e hiciste arraigar sus raíces, y llenó la tierra.

10Los montes fueron cubiertos de su sombra; y sus sarmientos fueron como cedros de Dios.

11Extendió sus vástagos hasta el mar, y hasta el río sus renuevos.

12¿Por qué has derribado sus vallados, de modo que la vendimien todos los que pasan por el camino?

13La estropea el puerco montés, y la devora la bestia del campo.

14Oh Dios de los ejércitos, vuelve ahora: Mira desde el cielo, y considera, y visita esta viña,

15y la planta que plantó tu diestra, y el renuevo que para ti afirmaste.

16Está quemada a fuego, asolada: ¡Perezcan por la reprensión de tu rostro!

17Sea tu mano sobre el varón de tu diestra, sobre el hijo del hombre que para ti corroboraste.

18Así no nos apartaremos de ti: Vida nos darás, e invocaremos tu nombre.

19Oh Jehová, Dios de los ejércitos, ¡restáuranos! Haz resplandecer tu rostro, y seremos salvos.

This Psalm is so beautiful. A song of desire for God to come down and be in the hearts of man. To be our breath, our life, our whole being. We cannot live without God. If He is not within, we are without; we are dead without Him. Sure our heart may be beating and we may be walking, but without Him, we are zombies. Sing this song today. Praise our God!

Philippians 4:11-13

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

No lo digo porque tenga escasez; pues he aprendido a contentarme, cualquiera que sea mi situación.  Sé tener escasez, y sé tener abundancia; en todo y por todo estoy enseñado, así para hartura, como para hambre; para tener abundancia, como para padecer necesidad.  Todo lo puedo en Cristo que me fortalece

Our contentment doesn’t come from money or material items. It doesn’t come from other people; the only contentment we can have all comes from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. No matter the situation, I will praise Him and glory in His mercy for us. It is through Him that we have life and love. Praise our wonderful God!
