Galatians 4:1-7

Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

 

Además digo: Entre tanto que el heredero es niño, en nada difiere del siervo, aunque es señor de todo; mas está bajo tutores y mayordomos hasta el tiempo señalado por el padre. Así también nosotros, cuando éramos niños, estábamos en esclavitud bajo los rudimentos del mundo. Mas venido el cumplimiento del tiempo, Dios envió a su Hijo, hecho de mujer, hecho bajo la ley, para que redimiese a los que estaban bajo la ley, a fin de que recibiésemos la adopción de hijos. Y por cuanto sois hijos, Dios envió el Espíritu de su Hijo a vuestros corazones, el cual clama: Abba, Padre. Así que ya no eres siervo, sino hijo; y si hijo, también heredero de Dios por Cristo.

 

It is easy to think we are better than other people, or they may think they are better than us. Money and possessions don’t make us better. Power doesn’t make us better. Nothing makes us better than the other human. We are all children of the Living God. Whatever we have done and whatever we will do will not make anyone better. It just comes down to accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and mind you….that doesn’t make you better than the person who has not yet done that. When we completely realize that, there is a new freedom that only the Holy Spirit can provide.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

 

Pero con respecto a la venida de nuestro Señor Jesucristo y a nuestra reunión con El, les rogamos, hermanos, que no sean sacudidos fácilmente en su modo de pensar, ni se alarmen, ni por espíritu, ni por palabra, ni por carta como si fuera de nosotros, en el sentido de que el día del Señor ha llegado. Que nadie los engañe en ninguna manera, porque no vendrá sin que primero venga la apostasía y sea revelado el hombre de pecado, el hijo de perdición. Este se opone y se exalta sobre todo lo que se llama dios o es objeto de culto, de manera que se sienta en el templo de Dios, presentándose como si fuera Dios.

 

Many think that this great falling away is people walking away from church. Could it be that churches themselves are falling away? That the Preachers and Pastors are “watering down” the Word? That they are more worried about having every seat full than telling the Word of God in fullness and Truth? To be very honest, this is what I see. We dare not hurt someone’s feelings because they are homosexual, or they had an abortion, or they still drink alcohol like fish or do drugs…at least they are in church. We better not preach about that this week because they may not come back.  Hey people, church is not a “feel good place”. It is where we come to worship Our Lord and Father and learn how we are supposed to walk, talk, and live. If I go to church and never feel conviction, I believe there is something wrong. If the Holy Spirit isn’t allowed in, that is a falling away. Yes, satan inhabits churches too. So where are you at with this? Where am I? Where is the church we go to?

As so many say….Just sayin

Psalm 51:10-13

God, create a pure heart in me,

and renew a right attitude within me.

Do not cast me from your presence;

do not take your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation,

and let a willing attitude control me.

Then I will teach transgressors about your ways,

and sinners will turn to you.

Crea en mí, oh Dios, un corazón limpio,
          y renueva un espíritu recto dentro de mí.
 No me eches de tu presencia,
          y no quites de mí tu santo Espíritu.
 Restitúyeme el gozo de tu salvación,
          y sostenme con un espíritu de poder.
 Entonces enseñaré a los transgresores tus caminos,
          y los pecadores se convertirán a ti.

We have often sang this in worship settings, but do we really look deep into what it is saying. Create a clean heart in me, let me be right in God’s eyes. We ask for Him to have full control so that we can do His will. God I ask this for me today. Thank you.

1 Timothy 4: 1-8

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!

2 Corinthians 5:1-10

1We know that if the earthly tent we live in is torn down, we have a building in heaven that comes from God, an eternal house not built by human hands. 2For in this one we sigh, since we long to put on our heavenly dwelling. 3Of course, if we do put it on, we will not be found without a body. 4So while we are still in this tent, we sigh under our burdens, because we do not want to put it off but to put it on, so that our dying bodies may be swallowed up by life. 5God has prepared us for this and has given us his Spirit as a guarantee.6Therefore, we are always confident, and we know that as long as we are at home in this body we are away from the Lord. 7For we live by faith, not by sight. 8We are confident, then, and would prefer to be away from this body and to live with the Lord. 9So whether we are at home or away from home, our goal is to be pleasing to him. 10For all of us must appear before the judgment seat of the Messiah, so that each of us may receive what he deserves for what he has done in his body, whether good or worthless.

1 Porque sabemos que si nuestra casa terrenal, este tabernáculo, se deshiciere, tenemos de Dios un edificio, una casa no hecha de manos, eterna, en el cielo. 2 Y por esto también gemimos, deseando ser revestidos de aquella nuestra habitación celestial; 3 y si así estamos vestidos, no seremos hallados desnudos. 4 Porque nosotros que estamos en este tabernáculo gemimos con angustia; porque no quisiéramos ser desnudados, sino revestidos, para que lo mortal sea absorbido por la vida. 5 Mas el que nos hizo para esto mismo es Dios, el cual también nos ha dado las arras del Espíritu. 6 Por tanto vivimos confiados siempre, sabiendo que entre tanto que estamos en el cuerpo, ausentes estamos del Señor 7 (porque por fe andamos, no por vista): 8 Estamos confiados, y más quisiéramos estar ausentes del cuerpo, y presentes con el Señor. 9 Por tanto procuramos también, o presentes, o ausentes, serle agradables. 10 Porque es menester que todos nosotros comparezcamos ante el tribunal de Cristo, para que cada uno reciba según lo que haya hecho mientras estaba en el cuerpo, ya sea bueno o sea malo.

Sometimes I find myself wanting to be away from all this world’s problems. The Holy Spirit that Jesus left with us when He ascended to Father God, keeps us striving on. Yes, I would rather be with my Lord, but He has missions for us. It is all about Him–all of it! I will keep working and striving to be right in His eyes…Will You?

Ephesians 3: 16-19

16that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that ye may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 17that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may be strong to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled unto all the fulness of God.

16 Le ruego que El les conceda a ustedes, conforme a las riquezas de Su gloria, el ser fortalecidos con poder por Su Espíritu en el hombre interior; 17 de manera que Cristo habite por la fe en sus corazones. También ruego que arraigados y cimentados en amor, 18 ustedes sean capaces de comprender con todos los santos cuál es la anchura, la longitud, la altura y la profundidad, 19 y de conocer el amor de Cristo que sobrepasa el conocimiento, para que sean llenos hasta la medida de toda la plenitud de Dios.

If we stay strong in God’s Word and in His Son, Jesus Christ, everything will work in our lives for the best. Sometimes it may not seem the best at the time, but trust God. Months or even years later, you will look back and realize it was the best. God’s love is amazing and He wants His children to have the best of His creations.

1 John 4:1-3

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.

Psalm 77:1-3

1I will cry unto God with my voice, Even unto God with my voice; and he will give ear unto me.

2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not; My soul refused to be comforted.

3I remember God, and am disquieted: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed. Selah

1  Con mi voz clamé a Dios, a Dios clamé, y Él me escuchó. 2 Al Señor busqué en el día de mi angustia; mi mal corría de noche y no cesaba; mi alma rehusó el consuelo. 3 Me acordaba de Dios, y me turbaba; me quejaba, y desmayaba mi espíritu. (Selah)

Sometimes it feels like God is far away. He isn’t, it could be we are far away from Him. When we cry out, He hears us. I needed this today, and I believe there are others who also needed this Word. Be quiet and know that God is Lord and will take care of us.

Ezekiel 18:31-32

Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dies, says the Lord GOD: therefore turn yourselves, and live.

Arrojad de vosotros todas las transgresiones que habéis cometido, y haceos un corazón nuevo y un espíritu nuevo. ¿Por qué habéis de morir, casa de Israel? Pues yo no me complazco en la muerte de nadie –declara el Señor DIOS–. Arrepentíos y vivid.

This Word of God is just as alive now as it was then. If we all turn, we can live. God has given us a very simple way, thru His Son Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 4:4-6

4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as also ye were called in one hope of your calling; 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.

4 Hay un solo cuerpo y un solo Espíritu, así como también ustedes fueron llamados en una misma esperanza de su vocación; 5 un solo Señor, una sola fe, un solo bautismo, 6 un solo Dios y Padre de todos, que está sobre todos, por todos y en todos.

As times seem very difficult right now, I know that I still must worship and do God’s will. By trusting God, only good will come. If I trust in anything else, it is bound to fail. Yes, there is only one God and Lord of all. He is in three persons, but one. All praise be to God!
