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!

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 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!

Hosea 10:12

Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Sembrad para vosotros según la justicia, segad conforme a la misericordia; romped el barbecho, porque es tiempo de buscar al SEÑOR hasta que venga a enseñaros justicia.

Oh yes, this word is directly for all of us today. If we do what we know is right, God will reward us. Evil will not defeat us. Live for Him, He is our strength and song!

Daniel 9:9

To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him

Al Señor nuestro Dios pertenece la compasión y el perdón, porque nos hemos rebelado contra El

No matter what we do, God is calling us back. He adores us. He longs for our worship. He cares for us so much that He allowed us to kill His only Son. Do we get it? Do we understand?

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.

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!

Psalm 100

1{A Psalm of praise.} Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

2Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

1 Aclamad con júbilo al SEÑOR, toda la tierra.
2 Servid al SEÑOR con alegría;
venid ante El con cánticos de júbilo.
3 Sabed que El, el SEÑOR, es Dios;
El nos hizo, y no nosotros a nosotros mismos;
pueblo suyo somos y ovejas de su prado.

4 Entrad por sus puertas con acción de gracias,
y a sus atrios con alabanza.
Dadle gracias, bendecid su nombre.
5 Porque el SEÑOR es bueno;
para siempre es su misericordia,
y su fidelidad por todas las generaciones.

It is a great and wonderful thing to sing praises unto God. He is magnificent, and we were made to praise Him—SING UNTO GOD!!!!

Ephesians 2:4-7

4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) 6And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

4 Pero Dios, que es rico en misericordia, por causa del gran amor con que nos amó, 5 aun cuando estábamos muertos en nuestros delitos, nos dio vida juntamente con Cristo (por gracia habéis sido salvados), 6 y con El nos resucitó, y con El nos sentó en los lugares celestiales en Cristo Jesús, 7 a fin de poder mostrar en los siglos venideros las sobreabundantes riquezas de su gracia por su bondad para con nosotros en Cristo Jesús

God’s great plan calls for us all to have the opportunity to be saved. He knows what we will choose, and even if we were still leading a sinful life, He chose and helps us get past the sin and into a relationship with Jesus. His grace is amazing. Rejoice in God!

y la fidelidad del SEÑOR es eterna.
