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!

1 Timothy 1: 5-8

The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions. Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully

 Pero el propósito de nuestra instrucción es el amor nacido de un corazón puro, de una buena conciencia y de una fe sincera.  Pues algunos, desviándose de estas cosas, se han apartado hacia una vana palabrería,  queriendo ser maestros de la ley, aunque no entienden lo que dicen ni las cosas acerca de las cuales hacen declaraciones categóricas.  Pero nosotros sabemos que la ley es buena, si uno la usa legítimamente

It is easy for us as Christians to get caught up in pointing fingers at others. We see a sin or a mistake they make and we forget how many we have made. Are we living in the Holy Spirit or in the law?

1 Timothy 4: 1-8

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer. In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following. But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.

Pero el Espíritu dice expresamente que en los postreros tiempos algunos apostatarán de la fe, escuchando a espíritus engañadores y a doctrinas de demonios;  que con hipocresía hablarán mentiras; teniendo cauterizada su conciencia;  prohibirán casarse, y mandarán abstenerse de alimentos que Dios creó para que con acción de gracias participasen de ellos los creyentes que han conocido la verdad.  Porque todo lo que Dios creó es bueno, y nada es de desecharse, si se toma con acción de gracias;  porque por la palabra de Dios y por la oración es santificado.  Si esto propusieres a los hermanos, serás buen ministro de Jesucristo, nutrido en las palabras de la fe y de la buena doctrina, la cual has alcanzado.  Mas desecha las fábulas profanas y de viejas, y ejercítate para la piedad;  porque el ejercicio corporal para poco es provechoso; mas la piedad para todo aprovecha, pues tiene promesa de la vida presente y de la venidera.

It is very easy to get caught up in what seems to be spirituality, but is actually law and stress. Don’t eat that, don’t drink this. Do it this way or follow my way.

The truth is, we need to follow God’s way–Jesus Christ’s way; we need to listen and follow the Holy Spirit. Just because everyone else is being vegetarians doesn’t mean you will get closer to Heaven by doing the same. There is only one way to Heaven–through Jesus’ amazing Grace.

Let God, prayer and God’s Word (The Bible) guide you. Many will try to have you follow their way–it doesn’t mean they are right. There is only one who has it completely right—Jesus Christ our Lord!

Habakkuk 1:4

So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted.

Por eso no se cumple la ley y nunca prevalece la justicia. Pues el impío asedia al justo; por eso sale pervertida la justicia.

I have wondered how such evil people get away with their crimes. This scripture shows us. We must trust God. His justice will be mighty and enduring. His justice will be true. Not much longer and the wicked will be able. Theirs is only a short time.

Hebrews 8:10-13

10For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

11And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

12For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

13In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

 

10 Porque éste es el pacto que haré con la casa de Israel, después de aquellos días, dice el Señor: Pondré mis leyes en sus mentes, y sobre sus corazones las escribiré; y seré a ellos por Dios, y ellos me serán a mí por pueblo: 11 Y ninguno enseñará a su prójimo, ni ninguno a su hermano, diciendo: Conoce al Señor: Porque todos me conocerán, desde el menor de ellos hasta el mayor. 12 Porque seré propicio a sus injusticias, y de sus pecados y de sus iniquidades no me acordaré más. 13 Y al decir: Nuevo pacto, da por viejo al primero; y lo que es dado por viejo y se envejece, cerca está a desvanecerse.

 

What a grand day that will be! Every person will know Jesus as Lord and there will be no need to preach and teach. God wants this for all of us. The beauty and love will flow like rivers. Oh, I am ready, Come Jesus, come!

Job 31:2-6

2For what portion of God is there from above? and what inheritance of the Almighty from on high?

3Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity?

4Does not he see my ways, and count all my steps?

5If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot has hurried to deceit;

6Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know my integrity.

2 Porque ¿qué galardón me daría de arriba Dios, y qué heredad el Omnipotente desde las alturas? 3 ¿No hay quebrantamiento para el impío, y calamidad inesperada para los que obran iniquidad? 4 ¿No ve Él mis caminos, y cuenta todos mis pasos? 5 Si anduve con mentira, y si mi pie se apresuró a engaño, 6 sea yo pesado en balanzas de justicia, y que Dios conozca mi integridad

Does God really owe us anything? Sometimes, we as people think He does. We owe God everything. I ask You my Father, to keep me and show me the path You desire for me. If I am misled or do wrong in Your eyes, please set me straight. I ask Your blessings my Lord, but most of all, let Your will be done.

Galatians 6:1-2

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering yourself, lest you also be tempted. Bear you one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.


1 Hermanos, si alguno fuere tomado en alguna falta, vosotros que sois espirituales, restaurad al tal en espíritu de mansedumbre, considerándote a ti mismo, no sea que tú también seas tentado. 2 Sobrellevad los unos las cargas de los otros, y cumplid así la ley de Cristo.

We sometimes can be very critical of others faults, not realizing our own. Do we consider that we can fall too? It is ok that we point out, but with love and understanding. God will bless us if we do it His way and not our own.

James 1:25

But whoever looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues in it, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Pero el que mira atentamente a la ley perfecta, la ley de la libertad, y permanece en ella, no habiéndose vuelto un oidor olvidadizo sino un hacedor eficaz, éste será bienaventurado en lo que hace.

The law of liberty doesn’t mean we do whatever we please; it means we do whatever God wants. Following His will should always be our utmost priority. God will bless us as long as we do.

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!
