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!

Daniel 12: 1-3

At that time

Michaela the great prince

who stands watch over your people will rise up.

There will be a time of distress

such as never has occurred

since nations came into being until that time.

But at that time all your people

who are found written in the book will escape.

Many of those who sleep in the dust

of the earth will awake,

some to eternal life,

and some to shame and eternal contempt.

Those who are wise will shine

like the bright expanse of the heavens,

and those who lead many to righteousness,

like the stars forever and ever.

En aquel tiempo se levantará Miguel, el gran príncipe que vela sobre los hijos de tu pueblo. Será un tiempo de angustia cual nunca hubo desde que existen las naciones hasta entonces; y en ese tiempo tu pueblo será librado, todos los que se encuentren inscritos en el libro.  Y muchos de los que duermen en el polvo de la tierra despertarán, unos para la vida eterna, y otros para la ignominia, para el desprecio eterno.  Los entendidos brillarán como el resplandor del firmamento, y los que guiaron a muchos a la justicia, como las estrellas, por siempre jamás.

The words written here are about the last days; days that many feel we are now in. Have you chosen which side you want to be on? It is today that you need to know if you want to be righteous in front of God, or shameful and live in pain and disgust. God is gracious, but it takes a willing heart for Him to pour out that Grace.

Psalm 5:7-8

But I, because of the abundance of your gracious love,

may come into your house.

In awe of you, I will worship in your holy Temple.

LORD, lead me in your righteousness because of my enemies.

Make your path straight before me.

Y yo por la multitud de tu misericordia entraré en tu casa; y adoraré hacia tu santo templo en tu temor.  Guíame, Jehová, en tu justicia a causa de mis enemigos; endereza delante de mí tu camino.

Oh, this scripture was absolutely needed by me today. No matter the circumstance, I know God is guiding me as long as I keep my eyes on Him. Please keep me in Your path Father God. I trust in You.

2 Corinthians 12: 9-10

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Y El me ha dicho: Te basta mi gracia, pues mi poder se perfecciona en la debilidad. Por tanto, muy gustosamente me gloriaré más bien en mis debilidades, para que el poder de Cristo more en mí. Por eso me complazco en las debilidades, en insultos, en privaciones, en persecuciones y en angustias por amor a Cristo; porque cuando soy débil, entonces soy fuerte.

Acts 20:24

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Pero en ninguna manera estimo mi vida como valiosa para mí mismo, a fin de poder terminar mi carrera y el ministerio que recibí del Señor Jesús, para dar testimonio solemnemente del evangelio de la gracia de Dios.

I pray this same prayer today. There is really only one very important objective in this whole life and that is sharing our wonderful Savior’s Love. All else is vanity and really amounts to nothing. May God help and save us all!

Titus 2: 11-12

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live sensibly, righteously, and godly, in this present world

Porque la gracia de Dios se ha manifestado, trayendo salvación a todos los hombres, enseñándonos, que negando la impiedad y los deseos mundanos, vivamos en este mundo sobria, justa y piadosamente

Everyone has been given the opportunity to receive the free gift of grace. It will be evident those who actually have partook in God’s grace. They will show the love of God in their actions and words. What are we showing to those around us? Are we showing God’s grace or the path to hell?

Ephesians 2:4-7

4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) 6And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

4 Pero Dios, que es rico en misericordia, por causa del gran amor con que nos amó, 5 aun cuando estábamos muertos en nuestros delitos, nos dio vida juntamente con Cristo (por gracia habéis sido salvados), 6 y con El nos resucitó, y con El nos sentó en los lugares celestiales en Cristo Jesús, 7 a fin de poder mostrar en los siglos venideros las sobreabundantes riquezas de su gracia por su bondad para con nosotros en Cristo Jesús

God’s great plan calls for us all to have the opportunity to be saved. He knows what we will choose, and even if we were still leading a sinful life, He chose and helps us get past the sin and into a relationship with Jesus. His grace is amazing. Rejoice in God!

Galatians 2:21

I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

No hago nula la gracia de Dios, porque si la justicia viene por medio de la ley, entonces Cristo murió en vano.

“Am I doing this right? Am I doing that right?” Sometimes we get so caught up in the laws, that we forget that no matter what we do, we are not good enough. Billy Graham wasn’t good enough and Mother Teresa wasn’t good enough. It is only God’s grace that makes us good enough. If we listen and heed the Holy Spirit, God will guide us.

Romans 3:19-26

19Now we know that whatsoever things the law says, it says to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22Even the righteousness of God which is by faith in Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

26To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him who believes in Jesus.

19 Ahora bien, sabemos que cuanto dice la ley, lo dice a los que están bajo la ley, para que toda boca se calle y todo el mundo sea hecho responsable ante Dios; 20 porque por las obras de la ley ningún ser humano será justificado delante de El; pues por medio de la ley viene el conocimiento del pecado.
21 Pero ahora, aparte de la ley, la justicia de Dios ha sido manifestada, atestiguada por la ley y los profetas; 22 es decir, la justicia de Dios por medio de la fe en Jesucristo, para todos los que creen; porque no hay distinción; 23 por cuanto todos pecaron y no alcanzan la gloria de Dios, 24 siendo justificados gratuitamente por su gracia por medio de la redención que es en Cristo Jesús, 25 a quien Dios exhibió públicamente como propiciación por su sangre a través de la fe, como demostración de su justicia, porque en su tolerancia, Dios pasó por alto los pecados cometidos anteriormente, 26 para demostrar en este tiempo su justicia, a fin de que El sea justo y sea el que justifica al que tiene fe en Jesús.

Oh God is so wonderful! It is only His Grace, ONLY! No other way, but through Jesus!

Galatians 2:20-21

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God: for if righteousness comes by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Con Cristo he sido crucificado, y ya no soy yo el que vive, sino que Cristo vive en mí; y la vida que ahora vivo en la carne, la vivo por fe en el Hijo de Dios, el cual me amó y se entregó a sí mismo por mí. No hago nula la gracia de Dios, porque si la justicia viene por medio de la ley, entonces Cristo murió en vano.

As is pointed out here, it’s all about Jesus and the gift of grace He gave us. There is nothing we can do that will make us “good” in the eyes of God. We are naturally evil, but God’s grace through His precious Son has given us a new life. Accept and cherish the Gift.
