Luke 24: 44-48

Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.

 

Y les dijo: Esto es lo que yo os decía cuando todavía estaba con vosotros: que era necesario que se cumpliera todo lo que sobre mí está escrito en la ley de Moisés, en los profetas y en los salmos.  Entonces les abrió la mente para que comprendieran las Escrituras,  y les dijo: Así está escrito, que el Cristo padeciera y resucitara de entre los muertos al tercer día;  y que en su nombre se predicara el arrepentimiento para el perdón de los pecados a todas las naciones, comenzando desde Jerusalén.  Vosotros sois testigos de estas cosas.

 

Jesus made some mighty promises just before He ascended to the Father. It is our duty and desire to pass our blessing onto others. He has given us the will and power to do so. We cannot allow the world to delegate what we preach about Jesus and His mighty love for us. Lets DO IT! Praise our wonderful Lord!

Revelation 3:11-12

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown. He that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

`Vengo pronto; retén firme lo que tienes, para que nadie tome tu corona. `Al vencedor le haré una columna en el templo de mi Dios, y nunca más saldrá de allí; escribiré sobre él el nombre de mi Dios, y el nombre de la ciudad de mi Dios, la nueva Jerusalén, que desciende del cielo de mi Dios, y mi nombre nuevo.

We have a call to stand strong in the duty we have been called to. God’s grace gives us that strength, and with prayer, He will help us through. The attacks may come, but stand in Jesus and all will come out great!

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.
