1 Timothy 2: 1-4

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Exhorto, pues, ante todo, que se hagan súplicas, oraciones, intercesiones y acciones de gracias, por todos los hombres; por los reyes y por todos los que están en eminencia, para que vivamos quieta y reposadamente en toda piedad y honestidad. Porque esto es bueno y agradable delante de Dios nuestro Salvador, el cual quiere que todos los hombres sean salvos, y vengan al conocimiento de la verdad.

We are to pray for all, not just some. Whether we like the ones who are in government or not, we should still lift them, and their decisions up to God. We cannot assume that God is using them for evil. God has a plan and it is our duty to pray, and let Him be God.

Hebrews 1

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”?

Or again,

“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.”

And,

“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.
  Y:
          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!

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.

Psalm 80

1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead Joseph like a flock!
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.
2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh,
stir up your might
and come to save us!

3 Restore us,a O God;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!

4 O Lord God of hosts,
how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers?
5 You have fed them with the bread of tears
and given them tears to drink in full measure.
6 You make us an object of contention for our neighbors,
and our enemies laugh among themselves.

7 Restore us, O God of hosts;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!

8 You brought a vine out of Egypt;
you drove out the nations and planted it.
9 You cleared the ground for it;
it took deep root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade,
the mighty cedars with its branches.
11 It sent out its branches to the sea
and its shoots to the River.b
12 Why then have you broken down its walls,
so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
13 The boar from the forest ravages it,
and all that move in the field feed on it.

14 Turn again, O God of hosts!
Look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine,
15 the stock that your right hand planted,
and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.
16 They have burned it with fire; they have cut it down;
may they perish at the rebuke of your face!
17 But let your hand be on the man of your right hand,
the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself!
18 Then we shall not turn back from you;
give us life, and we will call upon your name!

19 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!
Let your face shine, that we may be saved!

1«Al Músico principal: sobre Sosanim-edut: Salmo de Asaf» Oh Pastor de Israel, escucha: Tú que pastoreas como a ovejas a José, que habitas entre querubines, resplandece.

2Despierta tu poder delante de Efraín, y de Benjamín, y de Manasés, y ven a salvarnos.

3Oh Dios, restáuranos; y haz resplandecer tu rostro, y seremos salvos.

4Jehová, Dios de los ejércitos, ¿Hasta cuándo mostrarás indignación contra la oración de tu pueblo?

5Les diste a comer pan de lágrimas, y les diste a beber lágrimas en gran abundancia.

6Nos pusiste por contienda a nuestros vecinos; y nuestros enemigos se burlan entre sí.

7Oh Dios de los ejércitos, restáuranos; haz resplandecer tu rostro, y seremos salvos.

8Hiciste venir una vid de Egipto; echaste las gentes, y la plantaste.

9Preparaste el terreno delante de ella, e hiciste arraigar sus raíces, y llenó la tierra.

10Los montes fueron cubiertos de su sombra; y sus sarmientos fueron como cedros de Dios.

11Extendió sus vástagos hasta el mar, y hasta el río sus renuevos.

12¿Por qué has derribado sus vallados, de modo que la vendimien todos los que pasan por el camino?

13La estropea el puerco montés, y la devora la bestia del campo.

14Oh Dios de los ejércitos, vuelve ahora: Mira desde el cielo, y considera, y visita esta viña,

15y la planta que plantó tu diestra, y el renuevo que para ti afirmaste.

16Está quemada a fuego, asolada: ¡Perezcan por la reprensión de tu rostro!

17Sea tu mano sobre el varón de tu diestra, sobre el hijo del hombre que para ti corroboraste.

18Así no nos apartaremos de ti: Vida nos darás, e invocaremos tu nombre.

19Oh Jehová, Dios de los ejércitos, ¡restáuranos! Haz resplandecer tu rostro, y seremos salvos.

This Psalm is so beautiful. A song of desire for God to come down and be in the hearts of man. To be our breath, our life, our whole being. We cannot live without God. If He is not within, we are without; we are dead without Him. Sure our heart may be beating and we may be walking, but without Him, we are zombies. Sing this song today. Praise our God!

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!

Habakkuk 3:17-19

17Even though the fig tree does not blossom,

and there are no grapes on the vines;

even if the olive harvest fails,

and the fields produce nothing edible;

even if the flock is snatched from the sheepfold,

and there is no herd in the stalls—

18as for me, I will rejoice in the LORD.

I will find my joy in the God who delivers me.

19The LORD God is my strength—

he will make my feet like those of a deer,

equipping me to tread on my mountain heights.

 

17 Aunque la higuera no florezca, ni haya fruto en las vides; aunque falte el fruto del olivo, y los labrados no den mantenimiento; y las ovejas sean quitadas del redil, y no haya vacas en los corrales; 18 con todo, yo me alegraré en Jehová, y me gozaré en el Dios de mi salvación. 19 Jehová el Señor es mi fortaleza, Él hará mis pies como de ciervas, y me hará andar sobre mis alturas. (Al principal de los cantores, sobre mis instrumentos de cuerdas)

 

No matter what is happening around us, if we have our trust in God, He will be our refuge. He will keep us in hard times, but we must always trust Him, showing our faith even in times of prosperity. God has given us all the tools and the way. We must just rely on Him and His goodness will shine.

Hebrews 12:1-2

1Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

1 Por tanto, puesto que tenemos en derredor nuestro tan gran nube de testigos, despojémonos también de todo peso y del pecado que tan fácilmente nos envuelve, y corramos con paciencia (perseverancia) la carrera que tenemos por delante, 2 puestos los ojos en Jesús, el autor y consumador de la fe, quien por el gozo puesto delante de El soportó la cruz, despreciando la vergüenza, y se ha sentado a la diestra del trono de Dios.

Sometimes it is easy for us to allow the stress and cares of the world to overtake us and we don’t listen to the Holy Spirit. We are in a race and our goal is to run that race to the best of our ability. How do we do that? We listen to our coach. Who is our coach? Jesus is our coach. He lived it too. He knows what we face and He understands. If you fall, pick yourself up and listen to the coach–run and run. Your faith will give you strength. Look at the prize, because you WILL win if you listen to the coach–JESUS CHRIST.

Mark 16:15-16

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura. El que crea y sea bautizado será salvo; pero el que no crea será condenado.

We have a job to do. We need to tell all. It is quite clear in this passage that baptism is an outward sign that you believe and trust in Jesus. You say you believe, but have you shown it to the world by being baptized? It is important. Some preachers may claim it is not, but this scripture does point out it is. Get baptized and show the world your stand!

This is a great video:

2 Corinthians 1:4-6

4Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. 6And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

4 el cual nos consuela en todas nuestras tribulaciones, para que podamos nosotros consolar a los que están en cualquier angustia, con la consolación con que nosotros mismos somos consolados de Dios. 5 Porque de la manera que abundan en nosotros las aflicciones de Cristo, así abunda también por Cristo nuestra consolación. 6 Pues si somos atribulados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación; la cual es eficaz para soportar las mismas aflicciones que nosotros también padecemos; o si somos consolados, es por vuestra consolación y salvación.

There has been a problem at times when one Christian seeing another one facing difficulties. It could be a bad medical issue, house burns, car breaks down, etc… The tendency is to say they are doing something wrong. This is not always the case. Sometimes God allows bad things to happen to His people for His Glory. Take a look at Job; he was completely righteous, but he had everything taken from him. He kept praising God and in the end, he was rewarded. Just because someone has cancer, or a child died, or some other bad thing happened, it doesn’t mean God is attacking that person. He has a plan, and it is way beyond any of our plans, thoughts and ideas. Be careful what you say and do; because God will judge you on them in time.

Ezekiel 18:31-32

Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dies, says the Lord GOD: therefore turn yourselves, and live.

Arrojad de vosotros todas las transgresiones que habéis cometido, y haceos un corazón nuevo y un espíritu nuevo. ¿Por qué habéis de morir, casa de Israel? Pues yo no me complazco en la muerte de nadie –declara el Señor DIOS–. Arrepentíos y vivid.

This Word of God is just as alive now as it was then. If we all turn, we can live. God has given us a very simple way, thru His Son Jesus Christ.
