Romans 3:19-26

19Now we know that whatsoever things the law says, it says to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

21But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

22Even the righteousness of God which is by faith in Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

25Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

26To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him who believes in Jesus.

19 Ahora bien, sabemos que cuanto dice la ley, lo dice a los que están bajo la ley, para que toda boca se calle y todo el mundo sea hecho responsable ante Dios; 20 porque por las obras de la ley ningún ser humano será justificado delante de El; pues por medio de la ley viene el conocimiento del pecado.
21 Pero ahora, aparte de la ley, la justicia de Dios ha sido manifestada, atestiguada por la ley y los profetas; 22 es decir, la justicia de Dios por medio de la fe en Jesucristo, para todos los que creen; porque no hay distinción; 23 por cuanto todos pecaron y no alcanzan la gloria de Dios, 24 siendo justificados gratuitamente por su gracia por medio de la redención que es en Cristo Jesús, 25 a quien Dios exhibió públicamente como propiciación por su sangre a través de la fe, como demostración de su justicia, porque en su tolerancia, Dios pasó por alto los pecados cometidos anteriormente, 26 para demostrar en este tiempo su justicia, a fin de que El sea justo y sea el que justifica al que tiene fe en Jesús.

Oh God is so wonderful! It is only His Grace, ONLY! No other way, but through Jesus!

Zephaniah 3:1-5

1Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!

2She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.

3Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.

4Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.

5The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.

1 ¡Ay de la rebelde y contaminada,
la ciudad opresora!
2 No escuchó la voz,
ni aceptó la corrección.
No confió en el SEÑOR,
ni se acercó a su Dios.
3 Sus príncipes en medio de ella son leones rugientes,
sus jueces, lobos al anochecer;
no dejan nada para la mañana.
4 Sus profetas son temerarios, hombres pérfidos;
sus sacerdotes han profanado el santuario,
han violado la ley.
5 El SEÑOR es justo en medio de ella;
no cometerá injusticia.
Cada mañana saca a luz su juicio,
nunca falta;
pero el injusto no conoce la vergüenza.

When I read this prophetic scripture, I am considering today’s world and the United States. Could we fit into this? We need to repent and do right. We need to seek the True and Living God! We need to fall down and worship before Him and ask His mercy. It says at the end the unjust know not shame. Do you feel shame when you do wrong, or is it just another thing? Cry out to Jesus and beg His grace and mercy upon mankind!

Jeremiah 44:4-6

4Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate. 5But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods. 6Wherefore my fury and mine anger was poured forth, and was kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; and they are wasted and desolate, as at this day.

4 “Con todo, os envié a todos mis siervos los profetas repetidas veces, diciendo: `No hagáis ahora esta cosa abominable que yo aborrezco.’ 5 “Pero no escucharon ni inclinaron su oído para apartarse de su maldad, para dejar de quemar sacrificios a otros dioses. 6 “Por tanto, se derramó mi ira y mi furor y ardió en las ciudades de Judá y en las calles de Jerusalén, que fueron convertidas en ruinas y en desolación, como lo están hoy.

These words were not just for back then, they are for now too. Unless mankind starts listening and heeding what God wants, He will destroy all there is. He has allowed man to choose the path he wants to take and many are turning away from God. God has blessed us and many want to claim it was something else. Turn off the TV, put away the sin and deception that is controlling. Pick up the Bible and listen to the men and women of God! Bow down before Him and repent. It is not too late, but it is getting close.

2 Chronicles 20:20-21

And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall you be established; believe his prophets, so shall you prosper. And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endures forever.

Se levantaron muy de mañana y salieron al desierto de Tecoa; y cuando salían, Josafat se puso en pie y dijo: Oídme, Judá y habitantes de Jerusalén, confiad en el SEÑOR vuestro Dios, y estaréis seguros. Confiad en sus profetas y triunfaréis. Y habiendo consultado con el pueblo, designó a algunos que cantaran al SEÑOR y a algunos que le alabaran en vestiduras santas, conforme salían delante del ejército y que dijeran: Dad gracias al SEÑOR, porque para siempre es su misericordia.

We are in the same position; if we will listen to God and to those He has appointed, He will bless us and prosper us. We should worship and praise Him at all times with songs and our words. He can and will give us the strength and the way to defeat our enemies.

Acts 24:14-16

But this I confess unto you, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust. And in this do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men.

Pero esto admito ante ti, que según el Camino que ellos llaman secta, yo sirvo al Dios de nuestros padres, creyendo todo lo que es conforme a la ley y que está escrito en los profetas; teniendo la misma esperanza en Dios que éstos también abrigan, de que ciertamente habrá una resurrección tanto de los justos como de los impíos. Por esto, yo también me esfuerzo por conservar siempre una conciencia irreprensible delante de Dios y delante de los hombres.

This scripture has helped me this morning. In the last few days, I have been accused of lying and being a deceiver. I know that it comes from a dark place and these are just accusations trying to break my spirit and my faith. I wish that I could be at my son’s wedding tomorrow, but there is a good reason that delta wouldn’t let me on that plane. I feel God’s overwhelming love all around me and His protection. I pray that my son and his fiance will understand; I pray that all 3 of my kids realize that everything here is about God and only about God. My conscience is clean; I know I did everything in my power to make it happen, even losing $420 in the whole process and not getting anywhere. Will Delta make it right? I do not know. Will my children forgive and understand? I do not know. Does God love me? This is one question I do know—-YES!!! Thank You God!
