Joel 2:12-27

As I opened the Word, this scripture in Joel was enlightened. Please read it carefully and share. We are called to repent!

Therefore also now, said the LORD, turn you even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn to the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repents him of the evil.

Who knows if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering to the LORD your God?

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare your people, O LORD, and give not your heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: why should they say among the people, Where is their God?

 

Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

Yes, the LORD will answer and say to his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:

But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill smell shall come up, because he has done great things.

Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.

Be not afraid, you beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree bears her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.

Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he has given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.

And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that has dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

And you shall know that I am in the middle of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

 Aun ahora–declara el SEÑOR
          volved a mí de todo corazón,
          con ayuno, llanto y lamento.
 Rasgad vuestro corazón y no vuestros vestidos;
          volved ahora al SEÑOR vuestro Dios,
          porque El es compasivo y clemente,
          lento para la ira, abundante en misericordia,
          y se arrepiente de infligir el mal.
 ¿Quién sabe si volverá y se apiadará,
          y dejará tras sí bendición,
          es decir, ofrenda de cereal y libación
          para el SEÑOR vuestro Dios?
 Tocad trompeta en Sion,
          promulgad ayuno, convocad asamblea,
 reunid al pueblo, santificad la asamblea,
          congregad a los ancianos,
          reunid a los pequeños y a los niños de pecho.
          Salga el novio de su aposento
          y la novia de su alcoba.
 Entre el pórtico y el altar,
          lloren los sacerdotes, ministros del SEÑOR,
    y digan: Perdona, oh SEÑOR, a tu pueblo,
          y no entregues tu heredad al oprobio,
          a la burla entre las naciones.
          ¿Por qué han de decir entre los pueblos:
          “Dónde está su Dios?

 

 Entonces el SEÑOR se llenará de celo por su tierra,
          y tendrá piedad de su pueblo.
 El SEÑOR responderá, y dirá a su pueblo:
          He aquí, yo os enviaré grano, mosto y aceite,
          y os saciaréis de ello,
          y nunca más os entregaré al oprobio entre las naciones.
Al ejército del norte lo alejaré de vosotros
          y lo echaré a una tierra árida y desolada,
          su vanguardia hacia el mar oriental,
          y su retaguardia hacia el mar occidental.
          Y ascenderá su hedor y subirá su fetidez,
          porque ha hecho terribles cosas.
 No temas, oh tierra, regocíjate y alégrate,
          porque el SEÑOR ha hecho grandes cosas.
 No temáis, bestias del campo,
          porque los pastos del desierto han reverdecido,
          porque el árbol ha dado su fruto,
          la higuera y la vid han producido en abundancia.
 Hijos de Sion, regocijaos
          y alegraos en el SEÑOR vuestro Dios;
          porque El os ha dado la lluvia temprana para vuestra vindicación,
          y ha hecho descender para vosotros la lluvia,
  la lluvia temprana y la tardía como en el principio.
 Y las eras se llenarán de grano,
          y las tinajas rebosarán de mosto y de aceite virgen.
 Entonces os compensaré por los años
          que ha comido la langosta,
          el pulgón, el saltón y la oruga,
          mi gran ejército, que envié contra vosotros.
 Tendréis mucho que comer y os saciaréis,
          y alabaréis el nombre del SEÑOR vuestro Dios,
          que ha obrado maravillosamente con vosotros;
          y nunca jamás será avergonzado mi pueblo.
 Y sabréis que en medio de Israel estoy yo,
          y que yo soy el SEÑOR vuestro Dios
          y no hay otro;
          nunca jamás será avergonzado mi pueblo.

We also need to repent. We need to fall on our faces before the Lord. God will bless us and keep us as long as we turn all of ourselves over to Him. Let the ears hear!

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!

2 Corinthians 12:14-15

Gifts With Humanity

Here for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be a burden, for I seek not what is yours but you. For children are not obligated to save up for their parents, but parents for their children. I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If I love you more, am I to be loved less?

He aquí estoy preparado para ir a vosotros la tercera vez, y no os seré gravoso; porque no busco lo vuestro, sino a vosotros: porque no han de atesorar los hijos para los padres, sino los padres para los hijos.  Y yo de buena gana gastaré y seré desgastado por vuestras almas, aunque amándoos más, sea amado menos

God revealed this scripture to me this morning. I am made to bring my children into the Kingdom; to show them the path. God, please give me the wisdom and the words to be a blessing to those near me. I give You all thanks and praise my Lord. I know that You are holding me.

1 John 3:18

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Hijos, no amemos de palabra ni de lengua, sino de hecho y en verdad.

This is where the saying, “walk the walk, don’t talk the talk” comes from. We can speak many things, but do our actions show it?

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.

Daniel 12:1-4

1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

1 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. 2 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. 3 Los entendidos brillarán como el resplandor del firmamento, y los que guiaron a muchos a la justicia, como las estrellas, por siempre jamás. 4 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.

We are living in this time Daniel speaks of. We cannot lay back and just let evil win. We need to pray and trust that our Father will lead us in the path that will glorify Him. By doing so, we will see eternal happiness and others will too. God doesn’t want any men or women going to hell. Hell was made just for satan and his followers. Let’s tell people the way and the truth.

Matthew 19:13-14

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Allow little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Entonces le trajeron algunos niños para que pusiera las manos sobre ellos y orara; y los discípulos los reprendieron. Pero Jesús dijo: Dejad a los niños, y no les impidáis que vengan a mí, porque de los que son como éstos es el reino de los cielos.

If we all could be as little children with their awe of God, wouldn’t it be wonderful? Jesus spoke how heaven would be full of children. Think about all the children killed through abortion, abuse and other atrocities. Heaven has many children and they are all before the throne seeking justice. It is so sad that any would be ok with killing children in any way. God’s justice will come and for those who support the abuse or killing of children in any way, you need to seek forgiveness.

1 Corinthians 14:20

Brethren, be not children in understanding: but in malice be children, but in understanding be men.

Hermanos, no seáis niños en la manera de pensar; más bien, sed niños en la malicia, pero en la manera de pensar sed maduros.

God wants us to be like children in our worship and in some other areas, but we must be adults in our understanding. Think before we act, speak or write. C’mon people, let’s not act like little children in our actions with others.

Ephesians 4:14-15

That we from now on be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, who is the head, even Christ:

para que ya no seamos niños, sacudidos por las olas y llevados de aquí para allá por todo viento de doctrina, por la astucia de los hombres, por las artimañas engañosas del error; sino que hablando la verdad en amor, crezcamos en todos los aspectos en aquel que es la cabeza, es decir, Cristo

If we are living in Christ and reading the Word of God, the Holy Spirit will guide and lead us. Just because someone says, “This is the way” doesn’t mean it is actually so. The Word of God shows us everything we need; everything! Another key here is, we speak the truth in love; not in a “I’m better than you” tone or attitude. We are all God’s creatures and no one is better than another. I needed this today also; Thank you God!

Acts 2:37-39

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their hearts, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Al oír esto, compungidos de corazón, dijeron a Pedro y a los demás apóstoles: Hermanos, ¿qué haremos? Y Pedro les dijo: Arrepentíos y sed bautizados cada uno de vosotros en el nombre de Jesucristo para perdón de vuestros pecados, y recibiréis el don del Espíritu Santo. Porque la promesa es para vosotros y para vuestros hijos y para todos los que están lejos, para tantos como el Señor nuestro Dios llame.

God seeks all of us, ALL!  He is calling and all we need to do is call back. If we just ask Him, He will freely give us the free gift of everlasting life and eternal love. The Holy Spirit will live within us and will help guide us along that perfect path unto the Kingdom. By doing so, your children and their children will see and watch and will seek His everlasting life also. Do it for them. Your love for them asks for it. Praise our Holy God!
