Woe unto him that builds his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that uses his neighbor’s service without wages, and gives him nothing for his work
Ay del que edifica su casa sin justicia y sus aposentos altos sin derecho, que a su prójimo hace trabajar de balde y no le da su salario.
Manipulation is not a way to get ahead in this world. Many people use manipulation to get what they want. It may work for awhile, but God knows and will make things right.
11But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
11 Pero cuando Cristo apareció como sumo sacerdote de los bienes futuros, a través de un mayor y más perfecto tabernáculo, no hecho con manos, es decir, no de esta creación, 12 y no por medio de la sangre de machos cabríos y de becerros, sino por medio de su propia sangre, entró al Lugar Santísimo una vez para siempre, habiendo obtenido redención eterna. 13 Porque si la sangre de los machos cabríos y de los toros, y la ceniza de la becerra rociada sobre los que se han contaminado, santifican para la purificación de la carne, 14 ¿cuánto más la sangre de Cristo, el cual por el Espíritu eterno se ofreció a sí mismo sin mancha a Dios, purificará vuestra conciencia de obras muertas para servir al Dios vivo? 15 Y por eso El es el mediador de un nuevo pacto, a fin de que habiendo tenido lugar una muerte para la redención de las transgresiones que se cometieron bajo el primer pacto, los que han sido llamados reciban la promesa de la herencia eterna.
It is only through Jesus Christ that we can come to eternity. There is no other way! Some think that by being “good” or following paths of what seems good will get them there. No way! Jesus died and His blood was spilled for all of us to receive redemption. All we have to do is accept that fact and accept Jesus as our Savior. Just because you are doing “good” things doesn’t guarantee you a place in heaven.
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
De modo que cada uno de nosotros dará a Dios cuenta de sí mismo.
When we give account to God on what was done on this Earth, it will be just you and God; me and God. Sometimes it gets easy for us to look around us and say, “so and so is doing this wrong, or so and so is going to Hell.” Really, who are any of us to pass any kind of judgement? Judgement comes from God, not us. Do we realize we all are sinners? We all have things wrong. The only thing that some of us have right is we have accepted Jesus in our hearts. Some haven’t and that is our responsibility; we need to tell them and allow them to choose. Judging them and telling them how much they are wrong in just gives them the power to judge us and find things we are wrong in. They will find things because we are just men and women and we are not perfect.
Fear not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? you are even my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.
“No tembléis ni temáis; ¿no os lo he hecho oír y lo he anunciado desde hace tiempo? Vosotros sois mis testigos. ¿Hay otro dios fuera de mí, o hay otra Roca? No conozconinguna.
No matter what happens, we need to trust God and not fear. This is a word directly for me today, since my computer went out and it is my financial way. I am using Maggie’s but all the books and things are in it. I ask your prayers and support. May God be 1st over all!
Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you.
Decid a los de corazón tímido: Esforzaos, no temáis. He aquí, vuestro Dios viene con venganza; la retribución vendrá de Dios mismo, mas El os salvará.
Fear is not from God. We need not fear anything. God has a mighty and wonderful plan for all that trust in Him. He will justify and make all right that has been wrong. We just need to trust and know that He will. Praise Him!
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown. He that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
`Vengo pronto; retén firme lo que tienes, para que nadie tome tu corona. `Al vencedor le haré una columna en el templo de mi Dios, y nunca más saldrá de allí; escribiré sobre él el nombre de mi Dios, y el nombre de la ciudad de mi Dios, la nueva Jerusalén, que desciende del cielo de mi Dios, y mi nombre nuevo.
This scripture should give us all inspiration to keep walking in the will of God. Sometimes it is hard to stand for what we know is true and right, but it is our duty. A reward like no other will be given us. Stand with God and He will hold us up. Praise His Name!
Let no man therefore judge you in food, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Let no man deceive you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshiping of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind
Por tanto, que nadie se constituya en vuestro juez con respecto a comida o bebida, o en cuanto a día de fiesta, o luna nueva, o día de reposo; cosas que sólo son sombra de lo que ha de venir, pero el cuerpo pertenece a Cristo. Nadie os defraude de vuestro premio deleitándose en la humillación de sí mismo y en la adoración de los ángeles, basándose en las visiones que ha visto, hinchado sin causa por su mente carnal
If we follow God’s Holy Spirit, no one can condemn us. They will try, but they will look foolish in doing so. The law is the law, and Christ is all! We must follow His Truth to overcome the world’s traps and devices. His Word is our sword and if we stand upon it, we will win. We are at war. Fight it as the soldier of God should.
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.
11For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,
12Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
13Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
11 Pues así me habló el SEÑOR con gran poder y me instruyó para que no anduviera en el camino de este pueblo, diciendo:
12 No digáis: “Es conspiración,
a todo lo que este pueblo llama conspiración,
ni temáis lo que ellos temen, ni os aterroricéis.
13 Al SEÑOR de los ejércitos es a quien debéis tener por santo.
Sea El vuestro temor,
y sea El vuestro terror.
This Word from the book of Isaiah is for now. Many have called conspiracies and have called for a stand against powers and governments. The Lord is our government and our redemption. We need to call upon Him and witness His great power and might. If we follow the wrong path, destruction will follow. God will keep us if we call upon Him.
And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people joined in to the covenant.
Después el rey se puso en pie junto a la columna e hizo pacto delante del SEÑOR de andar en pos del SEÑOR y de guardar sus mandamientos, sus testimonios y sus estatutos con todo su corazón y con toda su alma, para cumplir las palabras de este pacto escritas en este libro. Y todo el pueblo confirmó el pacto.
If the leaders and kings of the Earth did this now, they would bless their country and people. I have a dream of all leaders bowing before God soon. It will be an amazing sight. May Jesus reign!
