John 18: 36-37

36Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.”

37Pilate said, “So you are a king?”

Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”

36 Jesús respondió: Mi reino no es de este mundo. Si mi reino fuera de este mundo, entonces mis servidores pelearían para que yo no fuera entregado a los judíos; mas ahora mi reino no es de aquí. 37 Pilato entonces le dijo: ¿Así que tú eres rey? Jesús respondió: Tú dices que soy rey. Para esto yo he nacido y para esto he venido al mundo, para dar testimonio de la verdad. Todo el que es de la verdad escucha mi voz.

His Kingdom is not here, but it is Heaven. We do not fight for a Kingdom here, but we should be fighting for Heaven. Our fight is not with guns and bombs, but with the Sword of the Word and with prayer. Keep fighting, we must overcome. Jesus reigns!

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.

John 18:36

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from here.

Jesús respondió: Mi reino no es de este mundo. Si mi reino fuera de este mundo, entonces mis servidores pelearían para que yo no fuera entregado a los judíos; mas ahora mi reino no es de aquí.

This is not our world either. Why do we fight so hard over the elections of leaders? Why are we so concerned when we know that evil controls governments and such? Our duty is to share the good news, not worry about who is in what office. Are we doing what God wants us to do or what the world wants us to do?

Oh, praise Him, praise Him. Because no servants fought to keep Jesus from the cross, He and the band of angels fight for us now! We will see glory and the Kingdom and our mighty, beloved King as long as we keep Him in our hearts. There has been or never will be such a mighty and great King as our Lord Jesus. Thank you Lord!

1 Corinthians 12:13

For by one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

Pues por un mismo Espíritu todos fuimos bautizados en un solo cuerpo, ya judíos o griegos, ya esclavos o libres, y a todos se nos dio a beber del mismo Espíritu.

We are all in Jesus no matter our color, race or denomination if we claim Jesus our Lord and Savior. We need to quit the prejudices that hinder us and make the non-believers laugh at us. We are all one in Him, lets act like it!
