Joshua 1: 8-9

https://i1.wp.com/hearingfromjesus.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/bible-with-cross-shadow.jpg

Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Este libro de la ley nunca se apartará de tu boca, sino que de día y de noche meditarás en él, para que guardes y hagas conforme a todo lo que en él está escrito; porque entonces harás prosperar tu camino, y todo te saldrá bien. Mira que te mando que te esfuerces y seas valiente; no temas ni desmayes, porque Jehová tu Dios estará contigo dondequiera que vayas.

If we maintain studying God’s Word, as it says here in Joshua…Day and Night, we will prosper and succeed. Not necessarily as the world thinks of success, but as God determines success.

Yes, we must stand strong and be courageous. We can not be apathetic and allow satan to push us to the left and right.

May God bless you.

Jonah 3

And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands. Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?

And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

La palabra del SEÑOR vino por segunda vez a Jonás: “Levántate, ve a Nínive, la gran ciudad, y proclama en ella el mensaje que Yo te diré.” Y Jonás se levantó y fue a Nínive conforme a la palabra del SEÑOR. Nínive era una ciudad muy grande, de un recorrido de tres días. Entonces Jonás comenzó a recorrer la ciudad camino de un día, y proclamaba: “Dentro de cuarenta días Nínive será arrasada.”

Entonces los habitantes de Nínive creyeron en Dios, y proclamaron ayuno y se vistieron de cilicio desde el mayor hasta el menor de ellos. Cuando llegó la noticia al rey de Nínive, se levantó de su trono, se despojó de su manto, se cubrió de cilicio y se sentó sobre ceniza. Y mandó proclamar y anunciar en Nínive, por decreto del rey y de sus grandes: “Ni hombre ni animales, ni buey ni oveja prueben cosa alguna. No dejen que pasten o beban agua. “Cúbranse de cilicio hombres y animales, y clamen a Dios con fuerza, y vuélvase cada uno de su mal camino y de la violencia que hay en sus manos. “¡Quién sabe! Quizá Dios se vuelva, se arrepienta y aparte el ardor de Su ira, y no perezcamos.”

Cuando Dios vio sus acciones, que se habían apartado de su mal camino, entonces Dios se arrepintió del mal que había dicho que les haría, y no lo hizo.

I have neglected this blog as of late, and I feel bad because of it. I have been caught up in the freelancing work I do along with the new website I have developed: http://lancerlife.com.

These are not good excuses at all for neglecting the Word of God. Just as Jonah went against God’s calling, I have done the same. No whale has swallowed me, but I did finally receive a picture and short letter from my Grandson Elijah yesterday. He was adopted and I was moved to tears. God has heard my prayer and allowed me to have some contact with this dear boy that I love very much.

My point in all of this is: we have missions in this life. I have been worried about making a living and have turned from the responsibilities I have of God. I first ask His forgiveness and also yours. May your day, your week and your years be full of God’s Grace, Mercy and Love.

God loves us!

Lamentations 3: 31-33

For the Lord will not
cast off forever,
but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion
according to the abundance of his steadfast love;
for he does not afflict from his heart
or grieve the children of men.

Porque no rechaza para siempre el Señor,
 antes bien, si aflige, también se compadecerá
          según su gran misericordia.
 Porque El no castiga por gusto,
          ni aflige a los hijos de los hombres.

No matter what we are going through; no matter what we are facing, God is with us, as long as our trust is in Him. Don’t let circumstances dictate your Godly peace. He provides….Receive.

Jeremiah 35:12-17

Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD. The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father’s commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me. I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me. Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me: Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto them, but they have not answered.

Entonces vino palabra del SEÑOR a Jeremías, diciendo:  Así dice el SEÑOR de los ejércitos, el Dios de Israel: “Ve y di a los hombres de Judá y a los habitantes de Jerusalén: `¿No aprenderéis a escuchar mis palabras?’–declara el SEÑOR.  `Las palabras de Jonadab, hijo de Recab, que mandó a sus hijos de no beber vino, son guardadas. Por eso no beben vino hasta hoy, porque han obedecido el mandato de su padre. Pero yo os he hablado repetidas veces, con todo no me habéis escuchado.  `También os he enviado a todos mis siervos los profetas, enviándolos repetidas veces, a deciros: “Volveos ahora cada uno de vuestro mal camino, enmendad vuestras obras y no vayáis tras otros dioses para adorarlos, y habitaréis en la tierra que os he dado, a vosotros y a vuestros padres; pero no inclinasteis vuestro oído, ni me escuchasteis.  “Ciertamente los hijos de Jonadab, hijo de Recab, han guardado el mandato que su padre les ordenó, pero este pueblo no me ha escuchado.’ Por tanto así dice el SEÑOR, Dios de los ejércitos, el Dios de Israel: “He aquí, traigo sobre Judá y sobre todos los habitantes de Jerusalén toda la calamidad que he pronunciado contra ellos, porque les hablé, pero no escucharon, y los llamé, pero no respondieron.

God is a God of mercy and love, but He is also perfect.

God cannot allow evil to persist. Just like the people of Judah who did not listen to God, many humans are also not listening to God. We wonder why all the problems in the world….it is because we have not listened to God. It is because we have taken Him out of our everyday life.

Lets all come back to God. His ways are far above our ways.

There is no situation in our lives that God cannot heal and mend. The key is: we must allow Him in. In some cases, the fixing needs to hurt to achieve the proper care.

God does care….He cares about each one of us.

I will put it in His hands….Will you?

The video at the bottom is awesome….be sure to watch it.

Nehemiah 5:1-13

1Now there arose a great outcry of the people and of their wives against their Jewish brothers. 2For there were those who said, “With our sons and our daughters, we are many. So let us get grain, that we may eat and keep alive.” 3There were also those who said, “We are mortgaging our fields, our vineyards, and our houses to get grain because of the famine.” 4And there were those who said, “We have borrowed money for the king’s tax on our fields and our vineyards. 5Now our flesh is as the flesh of our brothers, our children are as their children. Yet we are forcing our sons and our daughters to be slaves, and some of our daughters have already been enslaved, but it is not in our power to help it, for other men have our fields and our vineyards.”

6I was very angry when I heard their outcry and these words. 7I took counsel with myself, and I brought charges against the nobles and the officials. I said to them, “You are exacting interest, each from his brother.” And I held a great assembly against them 8and said to them, “We, as far as we are able, have bought back our Jewish brothers who have been sold to the nations, but you even sell your brothers that they may be sold to us!” They were silent and could not find a word to say. 9So I said, “The thing that you are doing is not good. Ought you not to walk in the fear of our God to prevent the taunts of the nations our enemies? 10Moreover, I and my brothers and my servants are lending them money and grain. Let us abandon this exacting of interest. 11Return to them this very day their fields, their vineyards, their olive orchards, and their houses, and the percentage of money, grain, wine, and oil that you have been exacting from them.” 12Then they said, “We will restore these and require nothing from them. We will do as you say.” And I called the priests and made them swear to do as they had promised. 13I also shook out the fold of my garment and said, “So may God shake out every man from his house and from his labor who does not keep this promise. So may he be shaken out and emptied.” And all the assembly said “Amen” and praised the Lord. And the people did as they had promised.

1Y hubo gran clamor del pueblo y de sus mujeres contra sus hermanos Judíos. 2Había quienes decían: “Nosotros, nuestros hijos y nuestras hijas somos muchos; por tanto, que se nos dé trigo para que comamos y vivamos.” 3Había otros que decían: “Nosotros tenemos que empeñar nuestros campos, nuestras viñas y nuestras casas para conseguir grano, a causa del hambre.” 4También había otros que decían: “Hemos pedido dinero prestado para el impuesto del rey sobre nuestros campos y nuestras viñas. 5“Ahora bien, nuestra carne es como la carne de nuestros hermanos, y nuestros hijos como sus hijos. Sin embargo, estamos obligando a nuestros hijos y a nuestras hijas a que sean esclavos, y algunas de nuestras hijas ya están sometidas a servidumbre, y no podemos hacer nada porque nuestros campos y nuestras viñas pertenecen a otros.”

6Entonces me enojé en gran manera cuando oí su clamor y estas palabras. 7Se rebeló mi corazón dentro de mí, y reprendí a los nobles y a los oficiales y les dije: “Ustedes están cobrando en exceso cada uno a su hermano.” Por tanto congregué contra ellos una gran asamblea. 8Y les dije: “Nosotros, conforme a nuestras posibilidades, hemos redimido a nuestros hermanos Judíos que fueron vendidos a las naciones; y ahora, ¿venderían ustedes aun a sus hermanos para que sean vendidos a nosotros?” Ellos se quedaron callados y no hallaron respuesta que dar. 9Agregué además: “No está bien lo que hacen. ¿No deben andar en el temor de nuestro Dios a causa del oprobio de las naciones enemigas nuestras? 10“También yo y mis hermanos y mis siervos les hemos prestado dinero y grano. Les ruego, pues, que abandonemos esta usura. 11“Les ruego que hoy mismo les devuelvan sus campos, sus viñas, sus olivares y sus casas; también la centésima parte del dinero y del grano, del vino nuevo y del aceite que están exigiendo de ellos.” 12Entonces ellos dijeron: “Lo devolveremos y no les exigiremos nada; haremos tal como has dicho.” Así que llamé a los sacerdotes y les hice jurar que harían conforme a esta promesa. 13También sacudí los pliegues de mi manto y dije: “Así sacuda Dios de su casa y de sus bienes a todo hombre que no cumpla esta promesa; así sea sacudido y despojado.” Y toda la asamblea dijo: “¡Amén!” Y alabaron al SEÑOR. Entonces el pueblo hizo conforme a esta promesa.

When we as, humans and as Christians, see a wrong being committed against someone who doesn’t deserve it, do we stand by and just allow those who in superior positions to do it?

One of God’s prophets stood ground for the poor and downtrodden. We can learn a lot from Nehemiah.

The fact is: if we know of a wrong being done to another human, and we stand idly by, we are just as guilty of the offense.

If we know of wrongs, we are sinning if we do not take a stand against those wrongs.

This is why I salute all who stand strong on the abortion debate.

PLAIN AND SIMPLE: ABORTION IS MURDER!

Judges 2: 1-3

//

Now the angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said, “I brought you up out of Egypt and led you into the land which I have sworn to your fathers; and I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you, and as for you, you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed Me; what is this you have done? “Therefore I also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; but they will become as thorns in your sides and their gods will be a snare to you.’”

El ángel del SEÑOR subió de Gilgal a Boquim y dijo a los Israelitas: “Yo los saqué a ustedes de Egipto y los conduje a la tierra que había prometido a sus padres y les dije: ‘Jamás quebrantaré Mi pacto con ustedes, y en cuanto a ustedes, no harán pacto con los habitantes de esta tierra; sus altares derribarán.’ Pero no Me han obedecido. ¿Qué es esto que han hecho? “Por lo cual también dije: ‘No los echaré de delante de ustedes, sino que serán como espinas en su costado, y sus dioses les serán lazo para ustedes.'”

We often wonder why God allows murders, terrorist activities, and wars. look at this passage; if we as humans would listen and follow the path God tells us to take, all will be well. The Israelites did not follow all that God told them and this is why the world is the way it is. It isn’t all their fault. We all have not listened to God at times and generations to come will pay for our non-adherence. God gave us freewill and in some ways it has made things difficult; not because God gave it to us, but because we use our freewill for greed and our own pride. We all must not blame God…we need to look in the mirror and blame the one who really is at fault. It is my fault Father, and I ask you to step in and fix the screw ups I have made. Praise You God!

Psalm 84:9-12

God, look at our shield,

and show favor to your anointed,

for a day in your Temple courts is better

than a thousand elsewhere;

I would rather stand

at the entrance of God’s house

than live in the tent of wickedness.

For the LORD God is a sun and shield;

the LORD grants grace and favor;

the LORD will not withhold any good thing

from those who walk blamelessly.

LORD of Heavenly Armies,

how happy are those who trust in you.

 Mira, oh Dios, escudo nuestro, y pon los ojos en el rostro de tu ungido.  Porque mejor es un día en tus atrios que mil fuera de ellos: Escogería antes estar a la puerta de la casa de mi Dios, que habitar en las moradas de maldad.  Porque sol y escudo es Jehová Dios: Gracia y gloria dará Jehová; no quitará el bien a los que en integridad andan.  Jehová de los ejércitos, dichoso el hombre que en ti confía.

It is all about trusting our Father God. If we put our trust in Him and walk the paths He sets for us, how can we fail? We won’t. God has an ultimate plan for us. Trust in Him and all will be good and right!

Daniel 9:9

To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him

Al Señor nuestro Dios pertenece la compasión y el perdón, porque nos hemos rebelado contra El

No matter what we do, God is calling us back. He adores us. He longs for our worship. He cares for us so much that He allowed us to kill His only Son. Do we get it? Do we understand?

Habakkuk 3:17-19

17Even though the fig tree does not blossom,

and there are no grapes on the vines;

even if the olive harvest fails,

and the fields produce nothing edible;

even if the flock is snatched from the sheepfold,

and there is no herd in the stalls—

18as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD.

I will find my joy in the God who delivers me.

19The LORD God is my strength—

he will make my feet like those of a deer,

equipping me to tread on my mountain heights.

 

17 Aunque la higuera no florezca, ni haya fruto en las vides; aunque falte el fruto del olivo, y los labrados no den mantenimiento; y las ovejas sean quitadas del redil, y no haya vacas en los corrales; 18 con todo, yo me alegraré en Jehová, y me gozaré en el Dios de mi salvación. 19 Jehová el Señor es mi fortaleza, Él hará mis pies como de ciervas, y me hará andar sobre mis alturas. (Al principal de los cantores, sobre mis instrumentos de cuerdas)

 

No matter what is happening around us, if we have our trust in God, He will be our refuge. He will keep us in hard times, but we must always trust Him, showing our faith even in times of prosperity. God has given us all the tools and the way. We must just rely on Him and His goodness will shine.

Psalm 36:5-12

5 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast you save, O Lord.

7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.

10 Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you,
and your righteousness to the upright of heart!
11 Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
12 There the evildoers lie fallen;
they are thrust down, unable to rise.

 

5 Jehová, hasta los cielos es tu misericordia; tu fidelidad alcanza hasta las nubes. 6 Tu justicia es como los montes de Dios, tus juicios abismo grande: Oh Jehová, al hombre y al animal conservas. 7 ¡Cuán preciosa, oh Dios, es tu misericordia! Por eso los hijos de los hombres se amparan bajo la sombra de tus alas. 8 Serán plenamente saciados de la grosura de tu casa; y tú los abrevarás del torrente de tus delicias. 9 Porque contigo está el manantial de la vida: En tu luz veremos la luz.

10 Extiende tu bondad a los que te conocen, y tu justicia a los rectos de corazón. 11 No venga contra mí pie de soberbia; y mano de impíos no me mueva. 12 Allí cayeron los obradores de iniquidad; fueron derribados, y no podrán levantarse.

 

This song, or prayer unto God is mighty and sure. God does have us under His wing and in His shadow. He will supply all of our needs when we put our trust in Him. The evil men cannot come against us with God protecting us. We just need to allow Him to be our Lord.
