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!

1 Timothy 1: 5-8

The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions. Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully

 Pero el propósito de nuestra instrucción es el amor nacido de un corazón puro, de una buena conciencia y de una fe sincera.  Pues algunos, desviándose de estas cosas, se han apartado hacia una vana palabrería,  queriendo ser maestros de la ley, aunque no entienden lo que dicen ni las cosas acerca de las cuales hacen declaraciones categóricas.  Pero nosotros sabemos que la ley es buena, si uno la usa legítimamente

It is easy for us as Christians to get caught up in pointing fingers at others. We see a sin or a mistake they make and we forget how many we have made. Are we living in the Holy Spirit or in the law?

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.

Psalm 51:10-13

God, create a pure heart in me,

and renew a right attitude within me.

Do not cast me from your presence;

do not take your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of your salvation,

and let a willing attitude control me.

Then I will teach transgressors about your ways,

and sinners will turn to you.

Crea en mí, oh Dios, un corazón limpio,
          y renueva un espíritu recto dentro de mí.
 No me eches de tu presencia,
          y no quites de mí tu santo Espíritu.
 Restitúyeme el gozo de tu salvación,
          y sostenme con un espíritu de poder.
 Entonces enseñaré a los transgresores tus caminos,
          y los pecadores se convertirán a ti.

We have often sang this in worship settings, but do we really look deep into what it is saying. Create a clean heart in me, let me be right in God’s eyes. We ask for Him to have full control so that we can do His will. God I ask this for me today. Thank you.

Ecclesiastes 11:5

As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

Como no sabes cuál es el camino del viento, O cómo se forman los huesos en el vientre de la mujer encinta, Tampoco conoces la obra de Dios que hace todas las cosas.

There are those times when we think we completely understand God, and we have the world by the tail. It is usually at that moment when things start to come unraveled and fall apart. Why? Because we don’t have it all down pat! If we did, we wouldn’t be on this Earth. Who are we to question God? Who are we to argue with the way He wants things done? Do we know better? God forbid!

Father God, I ask your Holy forgiveness for the times I think my way is better. Please keep guiding and blessing me. Your way is the only way; the only way to glory and true freedom. Oh Father, thank you for your precious love of me.

1 Corinthians 16:22

FrontierMEDEX Travel Insurance

If anyone doesn’t love the Lord, let him be condemned! May our Lord come!

Si alguno no ama al Señor, que sea anatema. ¡Maranata!

Paul wrote this towards the end of his first letter to the Corinthians. They are very strong words, but needed to be said. there are times we need to hold some of our words back, but other times they need to be strong and with authority. Yes, those that do not love Jesus, they are cursed. We do not need to curse them, because they are cursing themselves. When someone says a stupid joke about Jesus, or takes his name in vain, do we laugh or let it go? We shouldn’t! Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Those people who do such things need to hear the truth. Don’t let our Lord be attacked! That is our responsibility.

2 Corinthians 12:14-15

Gifts With Humanity

Here for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be a burden, for I seek not what is yours but you. For children are not obligated to save up for their parents, but parents for their children. I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If I love you more, am I to be loved less?

He aquí estoy preparado para ir a vosotros la tercera vez, y no os seré gravoso; porque no busco lo vuestro, sino a vosotros: porque no han de atesorar los hijos para los padres, sino los padres para los hijos.  Y yo de buena gana gastaré y seré desgastado por vuestras almas, aunque amándoos más, sea amado menos

God revealed this scripture to me this morning. I am made to bring my children into the Kingdom; to show them the path. God, please give me the wisdom and the words to be a blessing to those near me. I give You all thanks and praise my Lord. I know that You are holding me.

Psalm 69: 13-16

But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

Pero yo elevo a Ti mi oración, oh SEÑOR, en tiempo propicio; Oh Dios, en la grandeza de Tu misericordia, Respóndeme con Tu verdad salvadora.

 Sácame del cieno y no dejes que me hunda; Sea yo librado de los que me odian, y de lo profundo de las aguas.

 No me cubra la corriente de las aguas, Ni me trague el abismo, Ni el pozo cierre sobre mí su boca.

 Respóndeme, oh SEÑOR, pues buena es Tu misericordia; Vuélvete a mí, conforme a Tu inmensa compasión

This prayer of David is so personal. We need to be personal with God too. He listens and understands. He knows our deepest thoughts and our worse sins. He knows us better than we know ourselves.

Talk to Him. He wants you to.

Oh Father, save us!

Psalm 5:7-8

But I, because of the abundance of your gracious love,

may come into your house.

In awe of you, I will worship in your holy Temple.

LORD, lead me in your righteousness because of my enemies.

Make your path straight before me.

Y yo por la multitud de tu misericordia entraré en tu casa; y adoraré hacia tu santo templo en tu temor.  Guíame, Jehová, en tu justicia a causa de mis enemigos; endereza delante de mí tu camino.

Oh, this scripture was absolutely needed by me today. No matter the circumstance, I know God is guiding me as long as I keep my eyes on Him. Please keep me in Your path Father God. I trust in You.

Ephesians 1:18-23

18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

18 Mi oración es que los ojos de vuestro corazón sean iluminados, para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza de su llamamiento, cuáles son las riquezas de la gloria de su herencia en los santos, 19 y cuál es la extraordinaria grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, conforme a la eficacia de la fuerza de su poder, 20 el cual obró en Cristo cuando le resucitó de entre los muertos y le sentó a su diestra en los lugares celestiales, 21 muy por encima de todo principado, autoridad, poder, dominio y de todo nombre que se nombra, no sólo en este siglo sino también en el venidero. 22 Y todo sometió bajo sus pies, y a El lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia, 23 la cual es su cuerpo, la plenitud de aquel que lo llena todo en todo.

Do we always realize just how much power and might our Lord Jesus has? God raised Him from the dead and gave Him all. He loves us and wants the very best for us. Why don’t we allow Him to work in our lives? Why is our faith so small at times? Trust in Jesus; He can and will do the best for us.
