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.

1 Corinthians 8:9-13

9But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak. 10For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols; 11And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? 12But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. 13Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

9 Mas tened cuidado, no sea que esta vuestra libertad de alguna manera se convierta en piedra de tropiezo para el débil. 10 Porque si alguno te ve a ti, que tienes conocimiento, sentado a la mesa en un templo de ídolos, ¿no será estimulada su conciencia, si él es débil, a comer lo sacrificado a los ídolos? 11 Y por tu conocimiento se perderá el que es débil, el hermano por quien Cristo murió. 12 Y así, al pecar contra los hermanos y herir su conciencia cuando ésta es débil, pecáis contra Cristo. 13 Por consiguiente, si la comida hace que mi hermano tropiece, no comeré carne jamás, para no hacer tropezar a mi hermano.

It comes to listening to God’s Spirit. There are things we can do that may not affect our relationship with God, but doing them it may affect another. We must be careful with our words and deeds to not mislead or deceive another. It is all about leading others to Glory.

This, God’s Word, says the perfect law of liberty; not just doing what we feel, but doing God’s will. In doing so we will be free and we will have liberty. It doesn’t mean free speech or the right to carry a gun, it means eternity with a loving Creator who cares for us and wants the very best for us. All praise to God!

Jeremiah 34:17

Therefore thus says the LORD; You have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, everyone to his brother, and every man to his neighbor: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, says the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

Por tanto, así dice el SEÑOR: “Vosotros no me habéis obedecido proclamando libertad cada uno a su hermano y cada uno a su prójimo. He aquí, proclamo contra vosotros libertad–declara el SEÑOR– “a la espada, a la pestilencia y al hambre; y haré de vosotros motivo de espanto para todos los reinos de la tierra.

When we make promises before God, He expects us to honor them. He honors His promises! God is all powerful and mighty;why would we tell Him we will do something and go against it? Through my lifetime I have learned to not make any promises unless I can fulfill them. If I cannot, it is better to just say maybe or no. When we really look hard at our lives, all we have is our word and if we can’t honor a promise, why would anyone trust us? I have had attacks from the evil one lately; both my wife and I have; please pray for us and for those who are being used by satan to attack us. Praise You God; praise You Jesus!

Liberty doesn’t mean “just doing what we please”. It means doing what God wants for us. The Word; the Bible points out who, what, where and why. We need, no we must and are responsible for obeying and following the Word that Jesus and His delegates have passed from the Father on to us. Do you want blessings? Listen and heed the Word and your blessings will come.
