As he taught, he said, “Beware of the scribes! They like to walk around in long robes, to be greeted in the marketplaces, and to have the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. They devour widows’ houses and say long prayers to cover it up. They will receive greater condemnation!”
Y en su enseñanza les decía: Cuidaos de los escribas, a quienes les gusta andar con vestiduras largas, y aman los saludos respetuosos en las plazas, los primeros asientos en las sinagogas y los lugares de honor en los banquetes; que devoran las casas de las viudas, y por las apariencias hacen largas oraciones; éstos recibirán mayor condenación.
As I look and watch many venues in these days and times, it is really no different than what the scribes were doing in the days that Jesus walked the Earth. I see those who claim Jesus as Lord and preach at others, and turn and rob, steal, cheat and lie. Jesus was clear here that there are levels of condemnation. Some are ignorant of the sins they are performing, and others know full well what they are doing, and some do them in the name of Jesus. God is a great and merciful Lord, but He will not see men and women walk on and step on His beloved children. He will perform acts of pure justice; not justice as the world sees justice, but an almighty justice that is far above anything any earthly judge or jury can perform.
After reading this, please do not start pointing fingers. Look in the mirror. How have you been with God? I know I have committed treacherous acts, and I cry out right here; right now for cleansing. How about you?
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!

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer. In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following. But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
Pero el Espíritu dice expresamente que en los postreros tiempos algunos apostatarán de la fe, escuchando a espíritus engañadores y a doctrinas de demonios; que con hipocresía hablarán mentiras; teniendo cauterizada su conciencia; prohibirán casarse, y mandarán abstenerse de alimentos que Dios creó para que con acción de gracias participasen de ellos los creyentes que han conocido la verdad. Porque todo lo que Dios creó es bueno, y nada es de desecharse, si se toma con acción de gracias; porque por la palabra de Dios y por la oración es santificado. Si esto propusieres a los hermanos, serás buen ministro de Jesucristo, nutrido en las palabras de la fe y de la buena doctrina, la cual has alcanzado. Mas desecha las fábulas profanas y de viejas, y ejercítate para la piedad; porque el ejercicio corporal para poco es provechoso; mas la piedad para todo aprovecha, pues tiene promesa de la vida presente y de la venidera.
It is very easy to get caught up in what seems to be spirituality, but is actually law and stress. Don’t eat that, don’t drink this. Do it this way or follow my way.
The truth is, we need to follow God’s way–Jesus Christ’s way; we need to listen and follow the Holy Spirit. Just because everyone else is being vegetarians doesn’t mean you will get closer to Heaven by doing the same. There is only one way to Heaven–through Jesus’ amazing Grace.
Let God, prayer and God’s Word (The Bible) guide you. Many will try to have you follow their way–it doesn’t mean they are right. There is only one who has it completely right—Jesus Christ our Lord!
Dead flies make the perfumer’s ointment give off a stench;
so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right,
but a fool’s heart to the left.
Even when the fool walks on the road, he lacks sense,
and he says to everyone that he is a fool.
Las moscas muertas hacen que el ungüento del perfumista dé mal olor;
un poco de insensatez pesa más que la sabiduría y el honor.
El corazón del sabio lo guía hacia la derecha,
y el corazón del necio, hacia la izquierda.
Aun cuando el necio ande por el camino,
le falta entendimiento
y demuestra a todos que es un necio.
This shows that a person can walk a life of wisdom, but one slip and a foolish action can be held against them forever. We must bow to God and seek His wisdom; His guidance, because we are all just fools without Him. Our wisdom is, in all actuality, just foolishness. I don’t want my life to stink, so I will allow God to have it.
“For we will surely die and are like water spilled on the ground which cannot be gathered up again. Yet God does not take away life, but plans ways so that the banished one will not be cast out from him.
Pues ciertamente moriremos; somos como el agua derramada en tierra que no se vuelve a recoger. Pero Dios no quita la vida, sino designa medios para que el desterrado no sea alejado de él.
God cares about His people. Yes, we will die, but He wants the very best for us both on Earth and after. He is not the one who put death upon us, we do it to ourselves. Pour your cares out upon Him, for He cares for you.
1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2Hereby know you the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
1 Amados, no creáis a todo espíritu, sino probad los espíritus si son de Dios; porque muchos falsos profetas han salido por el mundo. 2 En esto conoced el Espíritu de Dios: Todo espíritu que confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, es de Dios; 3 y todo espíritu que no confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, no es de Dios; y éste es el espíritu del anticristo, del cual vosotros habéis oído que ha de venir, y que ahora ya está en el mundo.
We must be wise in who we believe. The Bible has every answer. If something said or preached doesn’t line up with the Word of God, it is false. Don’t be scared to question if something doesn’t seem right. Look in your Bible. The answers are all there.
7so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. 8All who came before mea were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. 9Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.b They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.
7 Entonces Jesús les dijo de nuevo: “En verdad les digo: Yo soy la puerta de las ovejas. 8 “Todos los que vinieron antes de Mí son ladrones y salteadores, pero las ovejas no les hicieron caso. 9 “Yo soy la puerta; si alguno entra por Mí, será salvo; y entrará y saldrá y hallará pasto. 10 “El ladrón sólo viene para robar, matar y destruir. Yo he venido para que tengan vida, y para que la tengan en abundancia.
Just what I needed today, we are sheep. We are seeking Jesus more and more. His door is the only door we need. As we face these daily difficult situations, we just rely in Him!
Whosoever digs a pit shall fall in it: and he that rolls a stone, it will return upon him.
El que cava un hoyo caerá en él, y el que hace rodar una piedra, sobre él volverá.
For those of us that have thoughts of revenge or attacking another person in secret, we need to take this scripture seriously. For those of us who have been attacked or certain individuals are devising plots against you, Trust God! Their own devices will come back upon them. When people lie against you, their lies will be uncovered. It may take a lot of time, but God does Justice in His time. His time is the best time. I have seen it and know. Praise His Holy Name!
6And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with you, and you do dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. 7And you shall speak my words to them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious. 8But you, son of man, hear what I say to you; Be not you rebellious like that rebellious house: open your mouth, and eat that I give you.
6 Y tú, hijo de hombre, no temas, no temas ni a ellos ni a sus palabras aunque haya contigo cardos y espinas y te sientes en escorpiones; no temas sus palabras ni te atemorices ante ellos, porque son una casa rebelde. 7 Les hablarás mis palabras, escuchen o dejen de escuchar, porque son rebeldes.
8 Y tú, hijo de hombre, escucha lo que te hablo; no seas rebelde como esa casa rebelde. Abre tu boca y come lo que te doy.
We can, at times, be in a position of speaking or being around people that are mean and try to trap us with their words and actions. We must stand with God’s Word and not be afraid of these people. We cannot fear satan or any of his workers. We are warriors with Jesus as or Chief Commander. Lets act like the soldiers we are and speak the Words that God gives us.
He that hates me hates my Father also.
El que me odia a mí, odia también a mi Padre.
There are many factions that claim God the Father, but not Jesus the Son of God. Do they realize this verse that Jesus said? Jesus is God the Son and if we deny Him, we deny the Father.
