Ephesians 5: 6-10

Hello all,

I want to apologize that I have not posted lately. I have been busy freelancing and have neglected the most important part of life…God.

Please forgive me.

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.

Nadie os engañe con palabras vanas; porque por estas cosas viene la ira de Dios sobre los hijos de desobediencia. No seáis, pues, partícipes con ellos.

Porque en otro tiempo erais tinieblas, mas ahora sois luz en el Señor: Andad como hijos de luz (porque el fruto del Espíritu es en toda bondad, justicia y verdad), aprobando lo que es agradable al Señor

There are many who will try to lead us down the wrong road. We are not to “buy” into their misleading words and actions. We know the truth. The Word carries it.

Colossians 3: 23-24

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.

 

Y todo lo que hagáis, hacedlo de corazón, como para el Señor y no para los hombres; sabiendo que del Señor recibiréis la recompensa de la herencia; porque a Cristo el Señor servís.

 

I am a full time freelance writer and author. Sometimes I find myself in much stress as editors decide it isn’t just good enough, while clients are saying it is great. I sometimes want to scream. I then give it to God, and I realize as long as I know I am doing it for Him and through Him, it is GOOD. If we are doing our work for our Lord and Savior, we are following the path He has for us.

I recently started a new website/blog for freelancers and those who hire freelancers. I am posting it here in case any of you would want to subscribe. You can find it at http://lancerlife.com; come and join.

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!

Ephesians 5: 15-17

Happy Thanksgiving!

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Por tanto, tened cuidado cómo andáis; no como insensatos, sino como sabios,  aprovechando bien el tiempo, porque los días son malos.  Así pues, no seáis necios, sino entended cuál es la voluntad del Señor

It is by the Bible, God’s Word and through prayer that we can walk in wisdom. The world and others may try to make us seem like fools, but as long as we stay in Him, He will carry us thru. The days ARE evil.

Nahum 1: 7-8

The Lord is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
he knows those who take refuge in him.

But with an overflowing flood
he will make a complete end of the adversaries,
and will pursue his enemies into darkness.

 

Bueno es el SEÑOR,
          una fortaleza en el día de la angustia,
          y conoce a los que en El se refugian.

 Pero con inundación desbordante
          pondrá fin a Nínive,
          y perseguirá a sus enemigos aun en las tinieblas.

 

God does know who is with and who is against Him. Some may be able to “fake” there way in this world, but God knows. My only hiding place is God. My only comfort is God. Everything I have is from God, and I can only praise God. All honor and praise to God!

John 21: 1-6

After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will also come with you.” They went out and got into the boat; and that night they caught nothing.

      But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. So Jesus said to them, “Children, you do not have any fish, do you?” They answered Him, “No.” And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch.” So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.

 

Después de esto, Jesús se manifestó otra vez a los discípulos junto al mar de Tiberias, y se manifestó de esta manera:  Estaban juntos Simón Pedro, Tomás llamado el Dídimo, Natanael de Caná de Galilea, los hijos de Zebedeo y otros dos de sus discípulos.  Simón Pedro les dijo: Me voy a pescar. Ellos le dijeron: Nosotros también vamos contigo. Fueron y entraron en la barca, y aquella noche no pescaron nada.  Cuando ya amanecía, Jesús estaba en la playa; pero los discípulos no sabían que era Jesús.  Entonces Jesús les dijo: Hijos, ¿acaso tenéis algún pescado? Le respondieron: No. Y El les dijo: Echad la red al lado derecho de la barca y hallaréis pesca. Entonces la echaron, y no podían sacarla por la gran cantidad de peces.

 

In many cases, we try to do the Lord’s work on our own….without Him.

We need to follow Him and His leading. It may seem like a no win situation, but that is when Jesus works best. Are we trusting Our Lord? Just because we think the fish are in one place, when He tells us to cast in another, we must.

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!

Joel 2:12-27

As I opened the Word, this scripture in Joel was enlightened. Please read it carefully and share. We are called to repent!

Therefore also now, said the LORD, turn you even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn to the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repents him of the evil.

Who knows if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering to the LORD your God?

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare your people, O LORD, and give not your heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: why should they say among the people, Where is their God?

 

Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

Yes, the LORD will answer and say to his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:

But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill smell shall come up, because he has done great things.

Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.

Be not afraid, you beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree bears her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.

Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he has given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.

And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that has dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

And you shall know that I am in the middle of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

 Aun ahora–declara el SEÑOR
          volved a mí de todo corazón,
          con ayuno, llanto y lamento.
 Rasgad vuestro corazón y no vuestros vestidos;
          volved ahora al SEÑOR vuestro Dios,
          porque El es compasivo y clemente,
          lento para la ira, abundante en misericordia,
          y se arrepiente de infligir el mal.
 ¿Quién sabe si volverá y se apiadará,
          y dejará tras sí bendición,
          es decir, ofrenda de cereal y libación
          para el SEÑOR vuestro Dios?
 Tocad trompeta en Sion,
          promulgad ayuno, convocad asamblea,
 reunid al pueblo, santificad la asamblea,
          congregad a los ancianos,
          reunid a los pequeños y a los niños de pecho.
          Salga el novio de su aposento
          y la novia de su alcoba.
 Entre el pórtico y el altar,
          lloren los sacerdotes, ministros del SEÑOR,
    y digan: Perdona, oh SEÑOR, a tu pueblo,
          y no entregues tu heredad al oprobio,
          a la burla entre las naciones.
          ¿Por qué han de decir entre los pueblos:
          “Dónde está su Dios?

 

 Entonces el SEÑOR se llenará de celo por su tierra,
          y tendrá piedad de su pueblo.
 El SEÑOR responderá, y dirá a su pueblo:
          He aquí, yo os enviaré grano, mosto y aceite,
          y os saciaréis de ello,
          y nunca más os entregaré al oprobio entre las naciones.
Al ejército del norte lo alejaré de vosotros
          y lo echaré a una tierra árida y desolada,
          su vanguardia hacia el mar oriental,
          y su retaguardia hacia el mar occidental.
          Y ascenderá su hedor y subirá su fetidez,
          porque ha hecho terribles cosas.
 No temas, oh tierra, regocíjate y alégrate,
          porque el SEÑOR ha hecho grandes cosas.
 No temáis, bestias del campo,
          porque los pastos del desierto han reverdecido,
          porque el árbol ha dado su fruto,
          la higuera y la vid han producido en abundancia.
 Hijos de Sion, regocijaos
          y alegraos en el SEÑOR vuestro Dios;
          porque El os ha dado la lluvia temprana para vuestra vindicación,
          y ha hecho descender para vosotros la lluvia,
  la lluvia temprana y la tardía como en el principio.
 Y las eras se llenarán de grano,
          y las tinajas rebosarán de mosto y de aceite virgen.
 Entonces os compensaré por los años
          que ha comido la langosta,
          el pulgón, el saltón y la oruga,
          mi gran ejército, que envié contra vosotros.
 Tendréis mucho que comer y os saciaréis,
          y alabaréis el nombre del SEÑOR vuestro Dios,
          que ha obrado maravillosamente con vosotros;
          y nunca jamás será avergonzado mi pueblo.
 Y sabréis que en medio de Israel estoy yo,
          y que yo soy el SEÑOR vuestro Dios
          y no hay otro;
          nunca jamás será avergonzado mi pueblo.

We also need to repent. We need to fall on our faces before the Lord. God will bless us and keep us as long as we turn all of ourselves over to Him. Let the ears hear!

Malachi 3:2

But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap.

 

“¿Pero quién podrá soportar el día de Su venida? ¿Y quién podrá mantenerse en pie cuando El aparezca? Porque El es como fuego de fundidor y como jabón de lavanderos.

 

Many of us say we are ready for Jesus to come, but are we really?  Will we be able to handle it? This scripture is quite clear that the Lord will be the cleanser. We are all dirty and need to be cleansed, but can we handle it. this is just something to consider today. All comments are welcome.

Psalm 102: 1-12

Get the Highest Quality Content… at the Lowest Possible Price!

 

Lord, hear my prayer!

Listen to my plea!

Don’t turn away from me

in my time of distress.

Bend down to listen,

and answer me quickly when I call to you.

For my days disappear like smoke,

and my bones burn like red-hot coals.

My heart is sick, withered like grass,

and I have lost my appetite.

Because of my groaning,

I am reduced to skin and bones.

I am like an owl in the desert,

like a little owl in a far-off wilderness.

I lie awake,

lonely as a solitary bird on the roof.

My enemies taunt me day after day.

They mock and curse me.

I eat ashes for food.

My tears run down into my drink

because of your anger and wrath.

For you have picked me up and thrown me out.

My life passes as swiftly as the evening shadows.

I am withering away like grass.

But you, O Lord, will sit on your throne forever.

Your fame will endure to every generation.

Plegaria de uno que sufre, cuando desmaya y expone su queja ante el SEÑOR. Oh SEÑOR, escucha mi oración, Y llegue a Ti mi clamor.

No escondas de mí Tu rostro en el día de mi angustia; Inclina hacia mí Tu oído; El día en que Te invoco, respóndeme pronto.

Porque mis días han sido consumidos en humo, Y como brasero han sido quemados mis huesos.

Mi corazón ha sido herido como la hierba y se ha secado, Y hasta me olvido de comer mi pan.

A causa de la intensidad de mi gemido Mis huesos se pegan a la piel.

Me parezco al pelícano del desierto; Como el búho de las soledades he llegado a ser.

No puedo dormir; Soy cual pájaro solitario sobre un tejado.

Mis enemigos me han afrentado todo el día; Los que me escarnecen han usado mi nombre como maldición.

Porque he comido cenizas por pan, Y con lágrimas he mezclado mi bebida,

A causa de Tu indignación y de Tu enojo; Pues Tú me has levantado y me has rechazado.

Mis días son como sombra que se alarga; Y yo me seco como la hierba.

Pero Tú, SEÑOR, permaneces para siempre, Y Tu nombre por todas las generaciones.

 

God has a plan. We sometimes just do not comprehend why we face hardships or difficulties, but His plan is true and sure. As we go through difficult times, let’s look upon Jesus and his endurance of the Cross. Nothing we are facing is even close to what He faced.

There is a reason, and our blessings will come. Trust and Faith in the Almighty is our main objective. If we do that, all will be well, because God’s plan will prevail.
