Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
Ni tentemos a Cristo, como también algunos de ellos le tentaron, y perecieron por las serpientes.
Jesus cannot be manipulated. We are not to even try to manipulate Him. Jesus is God. God knows us and He will bless us if we walk the path He wants for us. Don’t tempt God!
16that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that ye may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 17that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may be strong to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled unto all the fulness of God.
16 Le ruego que El les conceda a ustedes, conforme a las riquezas de Su gloria, el ser fortalecidos con poder por Su Espíritu en el hombre interior; 17 de manera que Cristo habite por la fe en sus corazones. También ruego que arraigados y cimentados en amor, 18 ustedes sean capaces de comprender con todos los santos cuál es la anchura, la longitud, la altura y la profundidad, 19 y de conocer el amor de Cristo que sobrepasa el conocimiento, para que sean llenos hasta la medida de toda la plenitud de Dios.
If we stay strong in God’s Word and in His Son, Jesus Christ, everything will work in our lives for the best. Sometimes it may not seem the best at the time, but trust God. Months or even years later, you will look back and realize it was the best. God’s love is amazing and He wants His children to have the best of His creations.
1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2Hereby know you the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
1 Amados, no creáis a todo espíritu, sino probad los espíritus si son de Dios; porque muchos falsos profetas han salido por el mundo. 2 En esto conoced el Espíritu de Dios: Todo espíritu que confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, es de Dios; 3 y todo espíritu que no confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, no es de Dios; y éste es el espíritu del anticristo, del cual vosotros habéis oído que ha de venir, y que ahora ya está en el mundo.
We must be wise in who we believe. The Bible has every answer. If something said or preached doesn’t line up with the Word of God, it is false. Don’t be scared to question if something doesn’t seem right. Look in your Bible. The answers are all there.
This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
Palabra fiel es ésta , y en cuanto a estas cosas quiero que hables con firmeza, para que los que han creído en Dios procuren ocuparse en buenas obras. Estas cosas son buenas y útiles para los hombres.
Works don’t save us, only the grace of God saves us, but works are a part of what shows when we are saved. God will use us to show unsaved the way to everlasting life. That is why we are to maintain good works. All will work together to fulfill the Kingdom. God is with us if we just listen and obey Him.
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.
Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura. El que crea y sea bautizado será salvo; pero el que no crea será condenado.
We have a job to do. We need to tell all. It is quite clear in this passage that baptism is an outward sign that you believe and trust in Jesus. You say you believe, but have you shown it to the world by being baptized? It is important. Some preachers may claim it is not, but this scripture does point out it is. Get baptized and show the world your stand!
This is a great video:
What is my reward then? That preaching the gospel, I may deliver the gospel without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel. For whereas I was free as to all, I made myself the servant of all, that I might gain the more.
¿Cuál es, entonces, mi recompensa? Que al predicar el evangelio, pueda ofrecerlo gratuitamente sin hacer pleno uso de mi derecho en el evangelio. Porque aunque soy libre de todos, de todos me he hecho esclavo para ganar al mayor número posible.
Our reward is watching more come to the knowledge that their only way to salvation is Jesus Christ. We don’t ask payment, nor goods, we just want Jesus and our Father God glorified and worshiped. We are not masters if we show the way, we are servants. Let’s serve our fellow man.
I want to lift up Father God, those who lost loved ones in the devastation in Moore, Oklahoma. Please comfort them. We do not understand why, but you know Lord. Our trust is in You. Let your Kingdom come.
4Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. 6And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
4 el cual nos consuela en todas nuestras tribulaciones, para que podamos nosotros consolar a los que están en cualquier angustia, con la consolación con que nosotros mismos somos consolados de Dios. 5 Porque de la manera que abundan en nosotros las aflicciones de Cristo, así abunda también por Cristo nuestra consolación. 6 Pues si somos atribulados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación; la cual es eficaz para soportar las mismas aflicciones que nosotros también padecemos; o si somos consolados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación.
There has been a problem at times when one Christian seeing another one facing difficulties. It could be a bad medical issue, house burns, car breaks down, etc… The tendency is to say they are doing something wrong. This is not always the case. Sometimes God allows bad things to happen to His people for His Glory. Take a look at Job; he was completely righteous, but he had everything taken from him. He kept praising God and in the end, he was rewarded. Just because someone has cancer, or a child died, or some other bad thing happened, it doesn’t mean God is attacking that person. He has a plan, and it is way beyond any of our plans, thoughts and ideas. Be careful what you say and do; because God will judge you on them in time.
Nevertheless, the Lord was unwilling to destroy David’s dynasty because of the covenant that he had made with David, especially since he had promised to give him and to his sons the reigning presence of an heir forever.
Sin embargo el SEÑOR no quiso destruir la casa de David a causa del pacto que había hecho con David, y porque le había prometido darle una lámpara a él y a sus hijos para siempre.
God is true with all of His promises. He wants us all to worship and adore Him, but there are some who go the other path. There are consequences, but He gave us the perfect light in His Son…Jesus Christ. All honor and glory to our God!
For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.
porque ahora sí que vivimos, si vosotros estáis firmes en el Señor.
No matter what, no matter who; it is all about Jesus. If we stand fast, we will overcome. Thank You Father God, I needed this today.
7so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. 8All who came before mea were thieves and robbers. But the true sheep did not listen to them. 9Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.b They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.
7 Entonces Jesús les dijo de nuevo: “En verdad les digo: Yo soy la puerta de las ovejas. 8 “Todos los que vinieron antes de Mí son ladrones y salteadores, pero las ovejas no les hicieron caso. 9 “Yo soy la puerta; si alguno entra por Mí, será salvo; y entrará y saldrá y hallará pasto. 10 “El ladrón sólo viene para robar, matar y destruir. Yo he venido para que tengan vida, y para que la tengan en abundancia.
Just what I needed today, we are sheep. We are seeking Jesus more and more. His door is the only door we need. As we face these daily difficult situations, we just rely in Him!
