In that day man will have regard for his Maker
And his eyes will look to the Holy One of Israel.
He will not have regard for the altars, the work of his hands,
Nor will he look to that which his fingers have made,
Even the Asherim and incense stands.
En aquel día mirará el hombre a su Hacedor, y sus ojos contemplarán al Santo de Israel.
Y no mirará a los altares que hicieron sus manos, ni mirará a lo que hicieron sus dedos, ni a las imágenes de Asera, ni a las imágenes del sol.
Oh, how I long for this day. This is scripture that provides hope and inspiration, because God said it, and it will be! Men, women and children will all bow to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in worship and praise. We will all understand that our talents are not from our works, but are gifts from God.
I must praise God that He provided me writing talent. It is only by Him and He alone. God gave and God can take away–we must give our worship and praise to Him.
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!
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Exhorto, pues, ante todo, que se hagan súplicas, oraciones, intercesiones y acciones de gracias, por todos los hombres; por los reyes y por todos los que están en eminencia, para que vivamos quieta y reposadamente en toda piedad y honestidad. Porque esto es bueno y agradable delante de Dios nuestro Salvador, el cual quiere que todos los hombres sean salvos, y vengan al conocimiento de la verdad.
We are to pray for all, not just some. Whether we like the ones who are in government or not, we should still lift them, and their decisions up to God. We cannot assume that God is using them for evil. God has a plan and it is our duty to pray, and let Him be God.
After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will also come with you.” They went out and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing.
But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. So Jesus said to them, “Children, you do not have any fish, do you?” They answered Him, “No.” And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch.” So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.
Después de esto, Jesús se manifestó otra vez a los discípulos junto al mar de Tiberias, y se manifestó de esta manera: Estaban juntos Simón Pedro, Tomás llamado el Dídimo, Natanael de Caná de Galilea, los hijos de Zebedeo y otros dos de sus discípulos. Simón Pedro les dijo: Me voy a pescar. Ellos le dijeron: Nosotros también vamos contigo. Fueron y entraron en la barca, y aquella noche no pescaron nada. Cuando ya amanecía, Jesús estaba en la playa; pero los discípulos no sabían que era Jesús. Entonces Jesús les dijo: Hijos, ¿acaso tenéis algún pescado? Le respondieron: No. Y El les dijo: Echad la red al lado derecho de la barca y hallaréis pesca. Entonces la echaron, y no podían sacarla por la gran cantidad de peces.
In many cases, we try to do the Lord’s work on our own….without Him.
We need to follow Him and His leading. It may seem like a no win situation, but that is when Jesus works best. Are we trusting Our Lord? Just because we think the fish are in one place, when He tells us to cast in another, we must.
“Who does the Lord think we are?” they ask.
“Why does he speak to us like this?
Are we little children,
just recently weaned?
He tells us everything over and over—
one line at a time,
one line at a time,
a little here,
and a little there!”
So now God will have to speak to his people
through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language!
God has told his people,
“Here is a place of rest;
let the weary rest here.
This is a place of quiet rest.”
But they would not listen.
So the Lord will spell out his message for them again,
one line at a time,
one line at a time,
a little here,
and a little there,
so that they will stumble and fall.
They will be injured, trapped, and captured.
¿A quién enseñará conocimiento,
o a quién interpretará el mensaje?
¿A los recién destetados?
¿A los recién quitados de los pechos?
“Mandato sobre mandato, mandato sobre mandato,
línea sobre línea, línea sobre línea,
un poco aquí, un poco allá.
En verdad, con tartamudez de labios
y en lengua extranjera, El hablará a este pueblo,
al cual había dicho: Aquí hay reposo, dad reposo al cansado;
y: Aquí hay descanso. Pero no quisieron escuchar.
Por lo cual la palabra del SEÑOR para ellos será:
Mandato sobre mandato, mandato sobre mandato,
línea sobre línea, línea sobre línea,
un poco aquí, un poco allá,
para que vayan y caigan de espaldas,
se quiebren los huesos,
y sean enlazados y apresados.
Do we actually think we know more than God? We act like it quite often.
God is orderly; He is a God of order. Today’s world may have some wondering, but it isn’t God that has caused the chaos and disorder, it is us humans. It is our greed; it is our jealousy; it is our lying, cheating and stealing. It is our sin.
God will bring us back to Him, and He will do it in what seems harsh ways. He will allow extreme circumstances to make us realize that He is the one who we worship.
Look around at the world and its stresses. It can be fixed, not by judges, juries and executioners, but by we humans falling down and worshiping Jesus. It is through prayer and calling to our mighty God we will be able to overcome.
Time to turn off the tv, the internet and all the other items that are taking away from time with God.
This post is not pointing fingers–well, yes it is…I am pointing the fingers at myself.
We have a great and awesome God who loves and cares for us–Precept upon precept and line upon line, He will bring us back. We can do it the easy way or the hard way–either way
As he taught, he said, “Beware of the scribes! They like to walk around in long robes, to be greeted in the marketplaces, and to have the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. They devour widows’ houses and say long prayers to cover it up. They will receive greater condemnation!”
Y en su enseñanza les decía: Cuidaos de los escribas, a quienes les gusta andar con vestiduras largas, y aman los saludos respetuosos en las plazas, los primeros asientos en las sinagogas y los lugares de honor en los banquetes; que devoran las casas de las viudas, y por las apariencias hacen largas oraciones; éstos recibirán mayor condenación.
As I look and watch many venues in these days and times, it is really no different than what the scribes were doing in the days that Jesus walked the Earth. I see those who claim Jesus as Lord and preach at others, and turn and rob, steal, cheat and lie. Jesus was clear here that there are levels of condemnation. Some are ignorant of the sins they are performing, and others know full well what they are doing, and some do them in the name of Jesus. God is a great and merciful Lord, but He will not see men and women walk on and step on His beloved children. He will perform acts of pure justice; not justice as the world sees justice, but an almighty justice that is far above anything any earthly judge or jury can perform.
After reading this, please do not start pointing fingers. Look in the mirror. How have you been with God? I know I have committed treacherous acts, and I cry out right here; right now for cleansing. How about you?
If anyone doesn’t love the Lord, let him be condemned! May our Lord come!
Si alguno no ama al Señor, que sea anatema. ¡Maranata!
Paul wrote this towards the end of his first letter to the Corinthians. They are very strong words, but needed to be said. there are times we need to hold some of our words back, but other times they need to be strong and with authority. Yes, those that do not love Jesus, they are cursed. We do not need to curse them, because they are cursing themselves. When someone says a stupid joke about Jesus, or takes his name in vain, do we laugh or let it go? We shouldn’t! Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Those people who do such things need to hear the truth. Don’t let our Lord be attacked! That is our responsibility.
Then he said, “I tell all of you with certainty, unless you change and become like little children, you will never get into the kingdom from heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom from heaven, and whoever receives a little child like this in my name receives me.” If anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a large millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned at the bottom of the sea.”
y dijo: En verdad os digo que si no os convertís y os hacéis como niños, no entraréis en el reino de los cielos. Así pues, cualquiera que se humille como este niño, ése es el mayor en el reino de los cielos. Y el que reciba a un niño como éste en mi nombre, a mí me recibe. Pero al que haga tropezar a uno de estos pequeñitos que creen en mí, mejor le sería que le colgaran al cuello una piedra de molino de las que mueve un asno, y que se ahogara en lo profundo del mar.
Children are pure and clean at birth. It is we who teach them to sin. Do we understand the implications of doing that? These words from Jesus tell us the penalty. The next time you are considering using bad language, watching a lustful show, or any other thing that does not give glory to God in front of a child, consider this scripture. Children are the future!

9For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
9 Por esta razón, también nosotros, desde el día que lo supimos (lo oímos), no hemos cesado de orar por ustedes, pidiendo que sean llenos del conocimiento de Su voluntad en toda sabiduría y comprensión espiritual, 10 para que anden como es digno del Señor, haciendo en todo, lo que Le agrada, dando fruto en toda buena obra y creciendo en el conocimiento de Dios. 11 Rogamos que ustedes sean fortalecidos con todo poder según la potencia de Su gloria, para obtener toda perseverancia y paciencia, con gozo 12 dando gracias al Padre que nos ha capacitado para compartir la herencia de los santos en la Luz.
It is by prayer that we all survive. We think that so many other things keep us surviving, but the fact comes down to prayer. God is our provider, our comfort and our salvation. He is our life force and thru prayer we are moving and living. Let us pray for each other and give thanks to God. That is what we are here to do.
Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
No lo digo porque tenga escasez; pues he aprendido a contentarme, cualquiera que sea mi situación. Sé tener escasez, y sé tener abundancia; en todo y por todo estoy enseñado, así para hartura, como para hambre; para tener abundancia, como para padecer necesidad. Todo lo puedo en Cristo que me fortalece
Our contentment doesn’t come from money or material items. It doesn’t come from other people; the only contentment we can have all comes from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. No matter the situation, I will praise Him and glory in His mercy for us. It is through Him that we have life and love. Praise our wonderful God!
