Therefore thus says the LORD; You have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, everyone to his brother, and every man to his neighbor: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, says the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
Por tanto, así dice el SEÑOR: “Vosotros no me habéis obedecido proclamando libertad cada uno a su hermano y cada uno a su prójimo. He aquí, proclamo contra vosotros libertad–declara el SEÑOR– “a la espada, a la pestilencia y al hambre; y haré de vosotros motivo de espanto para todos los reinos de la tierra.
When we make promises before God, He expects us to honor them. He honors His promises! God is all powerful and mighty;why would we tell Him we will do something and go against it? Through my lifetime I have learned to not make any promises unless I can fulfill them. If I cannot, it is better to just say maybe or no. When we really look hard at our lives, all we have is our word and if we can’t honor a promise, why would anyone trust us? I have had attacks from the evil one lately; both my wife and I have; please pray for us and for those who are being used by satan to attack us. Praise You God; praise You Jesus!
And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.
Y él recogió todo el fruto de estos siete años de abundancia que hubo en la tierra de Egipto, y guardó el alimento en las ciudades; y guardó en cada ciudad el fruto de sus campos circunvecinos.
As Joseph was wise, we should be too. God will tell us when to save and when to not. Do we listen? I believe we all need to recognize what is happening right now on this earth. Is famine near? Be wise as Joseph was wise.
