If anyone doesn’t love the Lord, let him be condemned! May our Lord come!
Si alguno no ama al Señor, que sea anatema. ¡Maranata!
Paul wrote this towards the end of his first letter to the Corinthians. They are very strong words, but needed to be said. there are times we need to hold some of our words back, but other times they need to be strong and with authority. Yes, those that do not love Jesus, they are cursed. We do not need to curse them, because they are cursing themselves. When someone says a stupid joke about Jesus, or takes his name in vain, do we laugh or let it go? We shouldn’t! Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Those people who do such things need to hear the truth. Don’t let our Lord be attacked! That is our responsibility.
On that day they read in the book of Moses in the hearing of the people; and in it was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God forever; Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: however our God turned the curse into a blessing.
Aquel día leyeron del libro de Moisés a oídos del pueblo; y se encontró escrito en él que los amonitas y los moabitas no debían entrar jamás en la asamblea de Dios, porque no recibieron a los hijos de Israel con pan y agua, sino que contrataron contra ellos a Balaam para maldecirlos; pero nuestro Dios convirtió la maldición en bendición.
When we obey God, nothing, absolutely nothing can come against us. He will turn every bad meant against us into good. Trust that, He will!
Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when you came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you. Nevertheless the LORD your God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD your God turned the curse into a blessing unto you, because the LORD your God loved you.
porque no fueron a vuestro encuentro con pan y agua en el camino cuando salisteis de Egipto, y porque alquilaron contra ti a Balaam, hijo de Beor, de Petor en Mesopotamia, para maldecirte. Mas el SEÑOR tu Dios no quiso escuchar a Balaam, sino que el SEÑOR tu Dios te cambió la maldición en bendición, porque el SEÑOR tu Dios te ama.
No matter what others try to do against us, if we are walking in God’s will, He will turn cursing into blessing. He loves us. He wants the very best for us. We must allow Him to be our guide and everything will turn out perfect.
So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which you have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as it is this day. Because you have burned incense, and because you have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil has happened unto you, as it is this day.
El SEÑOR no pudo soportar más, a causa de la maldad de vuestras obras y a causa de las abominaciones que habíais cometido; por eso vuestra tierra fue convertida en ruinas, objeto de horror y maldición, sin habitantes, como está hoy. Porque quemasteis sacrificios y pecasteis contra el SEÑOR y no obedecisteis la voz del SEÑOR ni anduvisteis en su ley, ni en sus estatutos, ni en sus testimonios, por tanto, os ha sobrevenido esta calamidad, como sucede hoy.
How long will God be able to bear what is happening in the world today? Many of these same things are happening these days and God has been very gracious in not just destroying it all. Will man ever listen and heed the maker of all? Why do we not recognize that if we worship and follow Him, our lives will be good and full? God doesn’t want bad for us; He never has. We have brought it all on ourselves.
Father, please forgive. Please!!!! In Jesus’ name—Please!!!
