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”?
“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.”
“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.
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!
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.
3I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. 4He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. 5He was seen by Peterc and then by the Twelve. 6After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followersd at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. 7Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles. 8Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him.
3 Porque yo os entregué en primer lugar lo mismo que recibí: que Cristo murió por nuestros pecados, conforme a las Escrituras; 4 que fue sepultado y que resucitó al tercer día, conforme a las Escrituras; 5 que se apareció a Cefas y después a los doce; 6 luego se apareció a más de quinientos hermanos a la vez, la mayoría de los cuales viven aún, pero algunos ya duermen; 7 después se apareció a Jacobo, luego a todos los apóstoles, 8 y al último de todos, como a uno nacido fuera de tiempo, se me apareció también a mí.
Jesus is risen. Today is Easter, and Jesus is risen. He has shown Himself to all of us if we just look. Get out there today and worship Him. He deserves all worship.
And the soldiers’ plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape. But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they who could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:
Y el plan de los soldados era matar a los presos, para que ninguno de ellos escapara a nado; pero el centurión, queriendo salvar a Pablo, impidió su propósito, y ordenó que los que pudieran nadar se arrojaran primero por la borda y llegaran a tierra
When we walk with God and trust Him, He can and will control any situation. These soldiers were not believers, but God controlled them not to do what they were supposed to do. Man is nothing in comparison to God almighty. Give Him reverence and praise. He has the whole world in His hands.
