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!

Zephaniah 2:3

Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land,
who do his just commands;
seek righteousness; seek humility;
perhaps you may be hidden
on the day of the anger of the Lord.

Busquen al SEÑOR, Todos ustedes, humildes de la tierra Que han cumplido Sus preceptos; Busquen la justicia, busquen la humildad. Quizá serán protegidos El día de la ira del SEÑOR.

God cannot and will not allow the evil and injustice keep prevailing on this Earth. He has allowed it for a time, but there will be a day when his wrath will prevail over all the wrong. This tells us how we can escape and hide in His amazing love.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

 

Pero con respecto a la venida de nuestro Señor Jesucristo y a nuestra reunión con El, les rogamos, hermanos, que no sean sacudidos fácilmente en su modo de pensar, ni se alarmen, ni por espíritu, ni por palabra, ni por carta como si fuera de nosotros, en el sentido de que el día del Señor ha llegado. Que nadie los engañe en ninguna manera, porque no vendrá sin que primero venga la apostasía y sea revelado el hombre de pecado, el hijo de perdición. Este se opone y se exalta sobre todo lo que se llama dios o es objeto de culto, de manera que se sienta en el templo de Dios, presentándose como si fuera Dios.

 

Many think that this great falling away is people walking away from church. Could it be that churches themselves are falling away? That the Preachers and Pastors are “watering down” the Word? That they are more worried about having every seat full than telling the Word of God in fullness and Truth? To be very honest, this is what I see. We dare not hurt someone’s feelings because they are homosexual, or they had an abortion, or they still drink alcohol like fish or do drugs…at least they are in church. We better not preach about that this week because they may not come back.  Hey people, church is not a “feel good place”. It is where we come to worship Our Lord and Father and learn how we are supposed to walk, talk, and live. If I go to church and never feel conviction, I believe there is something wrong. If the Holy Spirit isn’t allowed in, that is a falling away. Yes, satan inhabits churches too. So where are you at with this? Where am I? Where is the church we go to?

As so many say….Just sayin

Hebrews 1

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

For to which of the angels did God ever say,

“You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

“I will be to him a father,
and he shall be to me a son”?

And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”

Of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels winds,

and his ministers a flame of fire.”

But of the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.

You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

And,

“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment,
like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be changed.
But you are the same,
and your years will have no end.”

And to which of the angels has he ever said,

“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?

Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?

 Dios, habiendo hablado hace mucho tiempo, en muchas ocasiones y de muchas maneras a los padres por los profetas,  en estos últimos días nos ha hablado por su Hijo, a quien constituyó heredero de todas las cosas, por medio de quien hizo también el universo.  El es el resplandor de su gloria y la expresión exacta de su naturaleza, y sostiene todas las cosas por la palabra de su poder. Después de llevar a cabo la purificación de los pecados, se sentó a la diestra de la Majestad en las alturas,  siendo mucho mejor que los ángeles, por cuanto ha heredado un nombre más excelente que ellos.

    Porque ¿a cuál de los ángeles dijo Dios jamás:
          HIJO MIO ERES TU,
          YO TE HE ENGENDRADO HOY;
          y otra vez:
          YO SERE PADRE PARA EL,
          Y EL SERA HIJO PARA MI?
  Y de nuevo, cuando trae al Primogénito al mundo, dice:
          Y ADORENLE TODOS LOS ANGELES DE DIOS.
  Y de los ángeles dice:
          EL QUE HACE A SUS ANGELES, ESPIRITUS,
          Y A SUS MINISTROS, LLAMA DE FUEGO.
  Pero del Hijo dice:
          TU TRONO, OH DIOS, ES POR LOS SIGLOS DE LOS SIGLOS,
          Y CETRO DE EQUIDAD ES EL CETRO DE TU REINO.
 HAS AMADO LA JUSTICIA Y ABORRECIDO LA INIQUIDAD;
          POR LO CUAL DIOS, TU DIOS, TE HA UNGIDO
          CON OLEO DE ALEGRIA MAS QUE A TUS COMPAÑEROS.
  Y:
          TU, SEÑOR, EN EL PRINCIPIO PUSISTE LOS CIMIENTOS DE LA TIERRA,
    Y LOS CIELOS SON OBRA DE TUS MANOS;
ELLOS PERECERAN, PERO TU PERMANECES;
          Y TODOS ELLOS COMO UNA VESTIDURA SE ENVEJECERAN,
 Y COMO UN MANTO LOS ENROLLARAS;
          COMO UNA VESTIDURA SERAN MUDADOS.

PERO TU ERES EL MISMO,
          Y TUS AÑOS NO TENDRAN FIN.
  Pero, ¿a cuál de los ángeles ha dicho jamás:
          SIENTATE A MI DIESTRA
          HASTA QUE PONGA A TUS ENEMIGOS
          POR ESTRADO DE TUS PIES?
  ¿No son todos ellos espíritus ministradores, enviados para servir por causa de los que heredarán la salvación.

What could I say that Paul didn’t say? Read it over…JESUS IS GOD!

I am tired of anyone or any entity trying to claim He isn’t.

How will they react when they have to bow before our mighty Lord and rebuke themselves.

Repent and live, or keep denying and burn.

Jesus is God, because the Father says so–that is right, the Great Father God made Jesus, His Son God. Jesus made the Holy Spirit God, so we have a tri-fold God…no, not three Gods, but one God in 3.

Read it again…and again…and again

Jesus is God!

Philippians 4:11-13

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!

Colossians 4:5-6

Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive  so that you will have the right response for everyone.

Anden sabiamente para con los de afuera, aprovechando bien el tiempo.  Que su conversación sea siempre con gracia, sazonada como con sal, para que sepan cómo deben responder a cada persona.

Many don’t actually “listen” to our words, they watch our actions. If we act and treat others with God’s leading and wisdom, those people will want to have what we have. Think before you act and speak…better than think-PRAY!

John 16:22

And ye therefore now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh away from you.

Por tanto, ahora vosotros tenéis también aflicción; pero yo os veré otra vez, y vuestro corazón se alegrará, y nadie os quitará vuestro gozo.

There is sorrow and grief in this world, but when we have Jesus as our Lord and Savior, these sorrows are just for a short time. We have Him to look toward and forward to. Joy is coming and soon!

Matthew 19:26

But Jesus beheld them, and said to them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Pero Jesús, mirándo los, les dijo: Para los hombres eso es imposible, pero para Dios todo es posible.

We are probably all guilty of it. “I can’t do it.” or “It won’t work.” If it is God’s will, you can do it. If it is God’s will, it will work. All things are possible with God. Jesus said it and it is fact. Don’t sell anything short. If God wants it, even if you think it cannot be done, it can and will, because God can make anything happen.

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!

John 21:25

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Y hay también muchas otras cosas que Jesús hizo, que si se escribieran en detalle, pienso que ni aun el mundo mismo podría contener los libros que se escribirían.

there were so many miracles and acts performed by our Lord and Savior, that everything could not be documented. He still is performing acts, acts that we do not notice, but Jesus is in our midst. If we give our heart and lives to Him, He will keep us in a pasture of peace and joy.
