Isaiah 66: 3-5

But he who kills an ox is like one who slays a man;
            He who sacrifices a lamb is like the one who breaks a dog’s neck;
            He who offers a grain offering is like one who offers swine’s blood;
            He who burns incense is like the one who blesses an idol.
            As they have chosen their own ways,
            And their soul delights in their abominations,

      So I will choose their punishments
            And will bring on them what they dread.
            Because I called, but no one answered;
            I spoke, but they did not listen.
            And they did evil in My sight
            And chose that in which I did not delight.”

      Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at His word:
            “Your brothers who hate you, who exclude you for My name’s sake,
            Have said, ‘Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy.’
            But they will be put to shame.

 

El que sacrifica buey, es como si matase un hombre; el que sacrifica oveja, como si degollase un perro; el que ofrece presente, como si ofreciese sangre de puerco; el que quema incienso, como si bendijese a un ídolo. Y porque han escogido sus propios caminos, y su alma amó sus abominaciones,

también yo escogeré sus escarnios, y traeré sobre ellos lo que temieron; porque llamé, y nadie respondió; hablé, y no oyeron; antes hicieron lo malo delante de mis ojos, y escogieron lo que no me agrada.

Oíd palabra de Jehová, vosotros los que tembláis a su palabra: Vuestros hermanos que os aborrecen, y os echan fuera por causa de mi nombre, dijeron: Jehová sea glorificado. Mas Él se mostrará para alegría vuestra, y ellos serán confundidos.

 

Hypocrisy can be a terrible thing. There are many, and I have been guilty of such, who try to tell others how to do it-how to live in God’s ways, but they do not look in the mirror of their own souls. None of us completely know what all God is doing. He uses the simple things to aggravate the worldly wise things.

It is quite evident in this that we should follow God’s path for our own lives, but do not necessarily think that your neighbor should follow that same path.

It is our position to share our gift of grace with others, in love…but not to tell them how they need to live the life God has for them.

The law is the law….and Grace is grace-the gift of our wonderful Savior!

1John 5: 4-12

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by his baptism in water and by shedding his blood on the cross—not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with his testimony. So we have these three witnesses— the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree. Since we believe human testimony, surely we can believe the greater testimony that comes from God. And God has testified about his Son. All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don’t believe this are actually calling God a liar because they don’t believe what God has testified about his Son.

And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.

Porque todo lo que es nacido de Dios vence al mundo. Y ésta es la victoria que ha vencido al mundo: nuestra fe.

¿Y quién es el que vence al mundo, sino el que cree que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios? Este es Aquél que vino mediante agua y sangre, Jesucristo; no sólo con agua, sino con agua y con sangre. Y el Espíritu es el que da testimonio, porque el Espíritu es la verdad. Porque tres son los que dan testimonio en el cielo: el Padre, el Verbo (Jesucristo), y el Espíritu Santo, y estos tres son uno. Y tres son los que dan testimonio en la tierra: el Espíritu, el agua, y la sangre, y los tres concuerdan.

Si recibimos el testimonio de los hombres, mayor es el testimonio de Dios; porque éste es el testimonio de Dios: que El ha dado testimonio acerca de Su Hijo. El que cree en el Hijo de Dios tiene el testimonio en sí mismo. El que no cree a Dios, ha hecho a Dios mentiroso, porque no ha creído en el testimonio que Dios ha dado respecto a Su Hijo. Y el testimonio es éste: que Dios nos ha dado vida eterna, y esta vida está en Su Hijo. El que tiene al Hijo tiene la vida, y el que no tiene al Hijo de Dios, no tiene la vida.

It is only through God that we have life. If we seem to be alive, but we do not have Jesus in our hearts, we are dead. Just because a person walks, eats, and sleeps doesn’t mean they are alive. Our life is in the Savior. As we can see through this scripture, it is all based on 3; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Our life is also in 3 if we live; the Spirit, the blood and the water.

Be baptized into the love of Jesus and be willing to let your blood flow for His glory. That is our reason, our duty and shows our devotion.

Praise our Holy God!

James 1:25

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Pero el que mira atentamente a la ley perfecta, la ley de la libertad, y permanece en ella, no habiéndose vuelto un oidor olvidadizo sino un hacedor eficaz, éste será bienaventurado en lo que hace.

The law of liberty is not doing what ever we want, it is doing whatever God wants for us. Liberty means freedom in Christ, not freedom in the world. So many have this confused. Confusion is not of God. Live in God’s freedom, not the world’s.

Ephesians 1:18-23

18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

18 Mi oración es que los ojos de vuestro corazón sean iluminados, para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza de su llamamiento, cuáles son las riquezas de la gloria de su herencia en los santos, 19 y cuál es la extraordinaria grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, conforme a la eficacia de la fuerza de su poder, 20 el cual obró en Cristo cuando le resucitó de entre los muertos y le sentó a su diestra en los lugares celestiales, 21 muy por encima de todo principado, autoridad, poder, dominio y de todo nombre que se nombra, no sólo en este siglo sino también en el venidero. 22 Y todo sometió bajo sus pies, y a El lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia, 23 la cual es su cuerpo, la plenitud de aquel que lo llena todo en todo.

Do we always realize just how much power and might our Lord Jesus has? God raised Him from the dead and gave Him all. He loves us and wants the very best for us. Why don’t we allow Him to work in our lives? Why is our faith so small at times? Trust in Jesus; He can and will do the best for us.

John 16:22

And ye therefore now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh away from you.

Por tanto, ahora vosotros tenéis también aflicción; pero yo os veré otra vez, y vuestro corazón se alegrará, y nadie os quitará vuestro gozo.

There is sorrow and grief in this world, but when we have Jesus as our Lord and Savior, these sorrows are just for a short time. We have Him to look toward and forward to. Joy is coming and soon!

1 Peter 3:12

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

PORQUE LOS OJOS DEL SEÑOR ESTAN SOBRE LOS JUSTOS, Y SUS OIDOS ATENTOS A SUS ORACIONES; PERO EL ROSTRO DEL SEÑOR ESTA CONTRA LOS QUE HACEN EL MAL.

He is always watching, hearing and knowing. He is with us. He knows our hearts and intentions. Trusting in God is our priority, because He has it all under control, even when it may not seem so.

Hebrews 3:3-6

3For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house. 4For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 5Now Moses was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later; 6but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house—whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.

3 Porque El ha sido considerado digno de más gloria que Moisés, así como el constructor de la casa tiene más honra que la casa. 4 Porque toda casa es hecha por alguno, pero el que hace todas las cosas es Dios. 5 Y Moisés fue fiel en toda la casa de Dios como siervo, para testimonio de lo que se iba a decir más tarde; 6 pero Cristo fue fiel como Hijo sobre la casa de Dios, cuya casa somos nosotros, si retenemos firme hasta el fin nuestra confianza y la gloria de nuestra esperanza.

Christ built the house, and we are that house. The only members of the house are those of us who accept Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. Confidence and faith are what keeps us going; don’t lose either. The enemy will throw stuff trying to lower your confidence, but know that God using the Son, Jesus Christ, will overcome all.

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 Corinthians 9:18-19

What is my reward then? That preaching the gospel, I may deliver the gospel without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For whereas I was free as to all, I made myself the servant of all, that I might gain the more.

¿Cuál es, entonces, mi recompensa? Que al predicar el evangelio, pueda ofrecerlo gratuitamente sin hacer pleno uso de mi derecho en el evangelio. Porque aunque soy libre de todos, de todos me he hecho esclavo para ganar al mayor número posible.

Our reward is watching more come to the knowledge that their only way to salvation is Jesus Christ. We don’t ask payment, nor goods, we just want Jesus and our Father God glorified and worshiped. We are not masters if we show the way, we are servants. Let’s serve our fellow man.

I want to lift up Father God, those who lost loved ones in the devastation in Moore, Oklahoma. Please comfort them. We do not understand why, but you know Lord. Our trust is in You. Let your Kingdom come.

2 Corinthians 1:4-6

4Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. 6And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

4 el cual nos consuela en todas nuestras tribulaciones, para que podamos nosotros consolar a los que están en cualquier angustia, con la consolación con que nosotros mismos somos consolados de Dios. 5 Porque de la manera que abundan en nosotros las aflicciones de Cristo, así abunda también por Cristo nuestra consolación. 6 Pues si somos atribulados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación; la cual es eficaz para soportar las mismas aflicciones que nosotros también padecemos; o si somos consolados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación.

There has been a problem at times when one Christian seeing another one facing difficulties. It could be a bad medical issue, house burns, car breaks down, etc… The tendency is to say they are doing something wrong. This is not always the case. Sometimes God allows bad things to happen to His people for His Glory. Take a look at Job; he was completely righteous, but he had everything taken from him. He kept praising God and in the end, he was rewarded. Just because someone has cancer, or a child died, or some other bad thing happened, it doesn’t mean God is attacking that person. He has a plan, and it is way beyond any of our plans, thoughts and ideas. Be careful what you say and do; because God will judge you on them in time.
