Psalm 36:5-12

5 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast you save, O Lord.

7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.

10 Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you,
and your righteousness to the upright of heart!
11 Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 There the evildoers lie fallen;
they are thrust down, unable to rise.

 

5 Jehová, hasta los cielos es tu misericordia; tu fidelidad alcanza hasta las nubes. 6 Tu justicia es como los montes de Dios, tus juicios abismo grande: Oh Jehová, al hombre y al animal conservas. 7 ¡Cuán preciosa, oh Dios, es tu misericordia! Por eso los hijos de los hombres se amparan bajo la sombra de tus alas. 8 Serán plenamente saciados de la grosura de tu casa; y tú los abrevarás del torrente de tus delicias. 9 Porque contigo está el manantial de la vida: En tu luz veremos la luz.

10 Extiende tu bondad a los que te conocen, y tu justicia a los rectos de corazón. 11 No venga contra mí pie de soberbia; y mano de impíos no me mueva. 12 Allí cayeron los obradores de iniquidad; fueron derribados, y no podrán levantarse.

 

This song, or prayer unto God is mighty and sure. God does have us under His wing and in His shadow. He will supply all of our needs when we put our trust in Him. The evil men cannot come against us with God protecting us. We just need to allow Him to be our Lord.

Ezekiel 18: 29-32

29Yet said the house of Israel, The way of the LORD is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?

30Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, said the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. 31Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel? 32For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dies, said the Lord GOD: why turn yourselves, and live you.

29 Pero la casa de Israel dice: “El camino del Señor no es recto. ¿No son rectos mis caminos, oh casa de Israel? ¿No son vuestros caminos los que no son rectos?
30 Por tanto, os juzgaré, a cada uno conforme a su conducta, oh casa de Israel–declara el Señor DIOS–. Arrepentíos y apartaos de todas vuestras transgresiones, para que la iniquidad no os sea piedra de tropiezo. 31 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? 32 Pues yo no me complazco en la muerte de nadie –declara el Señor DIOS–. Arrepentíos y vivid.

So many of us, me included, think that things are not fair. Many of the world’s ways are not fair, but God is completely fair. He gives us opportunity after opportunity. He wants all to live and worship Him. ALL! I want to give you all praise and honor oh God. Please keep us in your Holy Hands and keep us from evil, so that we will not hurt You.

Ezekiel 18:20-23

20The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

21But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. 22All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. 23Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

20 El alma que peque, ésa morirá. El hijo no cargará con la iniquidad del padre, ni el padre cargará con la iniquidad del hijo; la justicia del justo será sobre él y la maldad del impío será sobre él.
21 Pero si el impío se aparta de todos los pecados que ha cometido, guarda todos mis estatutos y practica el derecho y la justicia, ciertamente vivirá, no morirá. 22 Ninguna de las transgresiones que ha cometido le serán recordadas; por la justicia que ha practicado, vivirá. 23 ¿Acaso me complazco yo en la muerte del impío–declara el Señor DIOS— y no en que se aparte de sus caminos y viva?

We can turn from sin and be righteous. God declared it even before Jesus came to the Earth to be our sacrifice. If we turn away from sin and live in a righteous path, always in prayer and listening to God, He will bless us with His best blessings and best of all…Eternal Life with Him!

Job 4:8-9

Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed.

Por lo que yo he visto, los que aran iniquidad y los que siembran aflicción, eso siegan. Por el aliento de Dios perecen, y por la explosión de su ira son consumidos.

Evil people will get their just reward. It is inevitable! We must put them in God’s hands and allow Him to be the judge and jury.

Nehemiah 4:1-9

1But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews. 2And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned? 3Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall.

4Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity: 5And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders.

6So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.

7But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth, 8And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.

9Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.

1 Y sucedió que cuando Sanbalat se enteró de que estábamos reedificando la muralla, se enfureció y se enojó mucho. Y burlándose de los judíos, 2 habló en presencia de sus hermanos y de los ricos de Samaria, y dijo: ¿Qué hacen estos débiles judíos? ¿La restaurarán para sí mismos? ¿Podrán ofrecer sacrificios? ¿Terminarán en un día? ¿Harán revivir las piedras de los escombros polvorientos, aun las quemadas? 3 Tobías el amonita estaba cerca de él, y dijo: Aun lo que están edificando, si un zorro saltara sobre ello , derribaría su muralla de piedra.
4 Oye, oh Dios nuestro, cómo somos despreciados. Devuelve su oprobio sobre sus cabezas y entrégalos por despojo en una tierra de cautividad. 5 No perdones su iniquidad, ni su pecado sea borrado de delante de ti, porque han desmoralizado a los que edifican. 6 Y edificamos la muralla hasta que toda la muralla estaba unida hasta la mitad de su altura, porque el pueblo tuvo ánimo para trabajar.
7 Aconteció que cuando Sanbalat, Tobías, los árabes, los amonitas y los de Asdod se enteraron que continuaba la reparación de las murallas de Jerusalén, que las brechas comenzaban a ser cerradas, se enojaron mucho. 8 Y todos ellos conspiraron juntos para venir a luchar contra Jerusalén y causar disturbio en ella. 9 Entonces oramos a nuestro Dios, y para defendernos montamos guardia contra ellos de día y de noche.

Just like the Jews, we too have walls built around us to keep us from outer evil. At times, with our sin, we can make holes in these walls to allow the enemy passage in. Are we keeping our walls secure? We need to pray and read the Word and the walls God has built around us will stand firm and solid. As verse 9 says, we must set a watch with prayer. The evil ones are always looking for opportunities to break through the walls, but God gives us the strength and the way to keep the walls tight and strong.

Zephaniah 3:1-5

1Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!

2She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.

3Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.

4Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.

5The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.

1 ¡Ay de la rebelde y contaminada,
la ciudad opresora!
2 No escuchó la voz,
ni aceptó la corrección.
No confió en el SEÑOR,
ni se acercó a su Dios.
3 Sus príncipes en medio de ella son leones rugientes,
sus jueces, lobos al anochecer;
no dejan nada para la mañana.
4 Sus profetas son temerarios, hombres pérfidos;
sus sacerdotes han profanado el santuario,
han violado la ley.
5 El SEÑOR es justo en medio de ella;
no cometerá injusticia.
Cada mañana saca a luz su juicio,
nunca falta;
pero el injusto no conoce la vergüenza.

When I read this prophetic scripture, I am considering today’s world and the United States. Could we fit into this? We need to repent and do right. We need to seek the True and Living God! We need to fall down and worship before Him and ask His mercy. It says at the end the unjust know not shame. Do you feel shame when you do wrong, or is it just another thing? Cry out to Jesus and beg His grace and mercy upon mankind!

Isaiah 53:6

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Todos nosotros nos descarriamos como ovejas, nos apartamos cada cual por su camino; pero el SEÑOR hizo que cayera sobre El la iniquidad de todos nosotros.

It doesn’t say here that some have it right and some have it wrong; it says we all have it wrong. We have all faltered. God cares so much that He sent Jesus to bear all our faults. Do we realize that? Instead of weighing who is good and who is bad, don’t we realize we are all bad? None of us have it completely right, but thanks to God and Jesus, we are cleansed and sanctified. All praise to God!

Psalm 38:18-22

18For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.

19But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

20They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

21Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.

22Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

 

18 Confieso, pues, mi iniquidad;
afligido estoy a causa de mi pecado.
19 Pero mis enemigos son vigorosos y fuertes;
muchos son los que sin causa me aborrecen.
20 Y los que pagan mal por bien
se me oponen, porque yo sigo lo bueno.
21 No me abandones, oh SEÑOR;
Dios mío, no estés lejos de mí.
22 Apresúrate a socorrerme,
oh Señor, salvación mía.

 

This Psalm speaks for itself and it is also my prayer today. We need your help Lord God. Your mercy is greater than anything and we seek Your grace and mercy. Please help Father God.

Matthew 24:12-13

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Y debido al aumento de la iniquidad, el amor de muchos se enfriará. Pero el que persevere hasta el fin, ése será salvo.

We see this now; people are giving up on God because they think sin is better. I actually don’t know what they are thinking. No one said it would be easy carrying the Word of Jesus; the Word of God; but it is the Way, the only way to everlasting life. We must endure and not let the stress and sin defeat us. This comes thru prayer and worship. I seek more of Jesus; MORE OF GOD. WE MUST ENDURE THIS! ETERNITY IS ONLY A FEW STEPS IN THE FUTURE. ETERNITY WITH OUR KING JESUS!

Jeremiah 16:17-21

For my eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from my eyes. And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because they have defiled my land, they have filled my inheritance with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable idols. O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the nations shall come unto you from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things in which there is no profit. Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods? Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know my hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.

Porque mis ojos están puestos sobre todos sus caminos, que no se me ocultan, ni su iniquidad está encubierta a mis ojos. Pero primero, pagaré al doble su iniquidad y su pecado, porque ellos han contaminado mi tierra con los cadáveres de sus ídolos abominables y han llenado mi heredad con sus abominaciones. ¡Oh SEÑOR, fuerza mía y fortaleza mía, refugio mío en el día de angustia! A ti vendrán las naciones desde los términos de la tierra y dirán: Nuestros padres heredaron sólo mentira, vanidad y cosas sin provecho. ¿Puede hacer el hombre dioses para sí? ¡Pero no son dioses! Por tanto, he aquí, voy a darles a conocer, esta vez les haré conocer mi mano y mi poder; y sabrán que mi nombre es el SEÑOR.

God sees all! Everything! Do we actually think we can hide things from Him? For all of those that have done us wrong or any wrong we have done to others, it is known and it will be re payed. We will all bow before our Father and will know that He and only He, is God! It is sad that many just don’t get it and keep on and on with wickedness and evil. We will all bow and worship His Holiness.
