Ecclesiastes 6: 10-12

That which hath been is named already, and it is known that it is man: neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he. Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better? For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?

El que es, ya su nombre ha sido nombrado; y se sabe que es hombre, y que no podrá contender con Aquél que es más poderoso que él. Ciertamente las muchas palabras multiplican la vanidad. ¿Qué más tiene el hombre? Porque ¿quién sabe cuál es el bien del hombre en la vida, todos los días de la vida de su vanidad, los cuales él pasa como sombra? Porque ¿quién enseñará al hombre qué será después de él debajo del sol?

With all the latest news in the world, I have been depressed. I think on these words from Solomon who had everything he possibly could want, but his soul was in anguish. The answers to Solomon’s questions are actually very simple, but we make it so difficult….JESUS. Yes, Jesus is mightier than we. Yes, Jesus is the one who knows what is good for us in this short time we spend on Earth. Yes, Jesus can, and does tell us what is better for us. Yes, it is sad that the Supreme Court ruled in favor for marriage not adorned by God, but what about all the other garbage? How many Christians are watching the unhealthiness on the television sets? How many Christians are bypassing what the Holy Spirit is telling them? I want to just simply ask:

Will God Find Even 1 Who Is Righteous?

Psalm 108: 12-13

Oh, please help us against our enemies,

for all human help is useless.

With God’s help we will do mighty things,

for he will trample down our foes.

Danos ayuda contra el adversario, Pues vano es el auxilio del hombre.

En Dios haremos proezas, Y El pisoteará a nuestros adversarios.

Often times we seek other people’s help or advice. This scripture shows that compared to God’s help, human help is useless. Do we seek men before God? The best help of all comes when we fall on our knees and seek God.

Genesis 6: 5-13

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Y vio Jehová que la maldad de los hombres era mucha en la tierra, y que todo designio de los pensamientos del corazón de ellos era de continuo solamente el mal.  Y se arrepintió Jehová de haber hecho hombre en la tierra, y le pesó en su corazón.  Y dijo Jehová: Raeré de sobre la faz de la tierra, a los hombres que he creado, desde el hombre hasta la bestia, y hasta el reptil y las aves del cielo, porque me arrepiento de haberlos hecho.  Pero Noé halló gracia en los ojos de Jehová.

 Éstas son las generaciones de Noé: Noé, varón justo, perfecto fue en sus generaciones; con Dios caminó Noé.  Y engendró Noé tres hijos: a Sem, a Cam y a Jafet.  Y se corrompió la tierra delante de Dios, y estaba la tierra llena de violencia.  Y miró Dios la tierra, y he aquí que estaba corrompida; porque toda carne había corrompido su camino sobre la tierra.

 Y dijo Dios a Noé: El fin de toda carne ha venido delante de mí; porque la tierra está llena de violencia a causa de ellos; y he aquí que yo los destruiré con la tierra

So much of what we see and hear today could very well be very similar to the days of Noah. Will God soon repent of making us? He has already stated that He will not destroy the earth with water again. When He does it this time, it will be with fire. He is giving us chance after chance to turn from evil, but it seems the evil grows. Please, if you are listening, turn and bow before God. He desires our worship and love. Please, before it is too late!

Proverbs 27:2

Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

Que te alabe el extraño, y no tu boca; el forastero, y no tus labios.

This proverb speaks quite well for itself, there is not a whole lot I can say that would make it any more clear. We need to lay our arrogance to the side. Our talents are not from our own merits, they are a gift from God.

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.

Job 28:28

And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Y dijo al hombre: ‘El temor (La reverencia) del Señor es sabiduría, Y apartarse del mal, inteligencia.

Some wise words from Job. It is really so simple. We must fear God and depart from all evil. Thoughts, deeds and any evil thing must be out from us. God will bless us if we live as such. If we do slip up, if we repent, He will forgive, but we should always be striving to be perfect.

John 10: 7-9

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!

Mark 9:38-40

38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. 39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. 40For he that is not against us is on our part

38 Juan le dijo: Maestro, vimos a uno echando fuera demonios en tu nombre, y tratamos de impedírselo, porque no nos seguía. 39 Pero Jesús dijo: No se lo impidáis, porque no hay nadie que haga un milagro en mi nombre, y que pueda enseguida hablar mal de mí. 40 Pues el que no está contra nosotros, por nosotros está.

In today’s world, we see denominations fighting other denominations. All claim Jesus as their Savior and Lord, but are arguing over smaller things. All the while, Satan works his way in as an angel of light. Let’s stop fighting each other and work together in harmony as God leads us. Jesus is the way and the truth; we need His guidance and it is all in the Book: the Bible.

Revelation 3:11-12

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown. He that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

`Vengo pronto; retén firme lo que tienes, para que nadie tome tu corona. `Al vencedor le haré una columna en el templo de mi Dios, y nunca más saldrá de allí; escribiré sobre él el nombre de mi Dios, y el nombre de la ciudad de mi Dios, la nueva Jerusalén, que desciende del cielo de mi Dios, y mi nombre nuevo.

We have a call to stand strong in the duty we have been called to. God’s grace gives us that strength, and with prayer, He will help us through. The attacks may come, but stand in Jesus and all will come out great!

Luke 12:15

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.

Y les dijo: Estad atentos y guardaos de toda forma de avaricia; porque aun cuando alguien tenga abundancia, su vida no consiste en sus bienes.

It is very easy to get caught up in wanting what other people have; that process is not of God. There is more to life than what we have. Its all about Jesus: all of it.
