Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Este libro de la ley nunca se apartará de tu boca, sino que de día y de noche meditarás en él, para que guardes y hagas conforme a todo lo que en él está escrito; porque entonces harás prosperar tu camino, y todo te saldrá bien. Mira que te mando que te esfuerces y seas valiente; no temas ni desmayes, porque Jehová tu Dios estará contigo dondequiera que vayas.
If we maintain studying God’s Word, as it says here in Joshua…Day and Night, we will prosper and succeed. Not necessarily as the world thinks of success, but as God determines success.
Yes, we must stand strong and be courageous. We can not be apathetic and allow satan to push us to the left and right.
May God bless you.
16Now get to your feet! For I have appeared to you to appoint you as my servant and witness. You are to tell the world what you have seen and what I will show you in the future. 17And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles. Yes, I am sending you to the Gentiles 18to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.
16 “Pero levántate y ponte en pie; porque te he aparecido con el fin de designarte como ministro y testigo, no sólo de las cosas que has visto, sino también de aquellas en que me apareceré a ti; 17 librándote del pueblo judío y de los gentiles, a los cuales yo te envío, 18 para que abras sus ojos a fin de que se vuelvan de la oscuridad a la luz, y del dominio de Satanás a Dios, para que reciban, por la fe en mí, el perdón de pecados y herencia entre los que han sido santificados.
As Jesus spoke this to Paul, He also speaks to us. We are commissioned to do the same. Tell and show the world Jesus. Showing humans that Satan is not the way, but Jesus/God is the only way.
7So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown. 8And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.
9Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. 10But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
7 Satanás salió de la presencia del SEÑOR, e hirió a Job con llagas malignas desde la planta del pie hasta la coronilla. 8 Y Job tomó un tiesto para rascarse mientras estaba sentado entre las cenizas. 9 Entonces su mujer le dijo: ¿Aún conservas tu integridad? Maldice a Dios y muérete. 10 Pero él le dijo: Como habla cualquier mujer necia, has hablado. ¿Aceptaremos el bien de Dios y no aceptaremos el mal? En todo esto Job no pecó con sus labios.
No matter who or what comes our way, if we stand strong in the promises of God, we will be blessed. We see how not only Satan came at Job, but his own wife did also. By standing strong in God, Job was very blessed in the end. Don’t give up or give in. There are blessings coming!
12But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. 13For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
12 Pero lo que hago continuaré haciéndolo, a fin de privar de oportunidad a aquellos que desean una oportunidad de ser considerados iguales a nosotros en aquello en que se glorían. 13 Porque los tales son falsos apóstoles, obreros fraudulentos, que se disfrazan como apóstoles de Cristo. 14 Y no es de extrañar, pues aun Satanás se disfraza como ángel de luz. 15 Por tanto, no es de sorprender que sus servidores también se disfracen como servidores de justicia; cuyo fin será conforme a sus obras.
We must always be in prayer and study of God’s Word. The evil forces will come as if they are good, when really they are just showing paths to hell. The Bible has all the answers. Before you just go along with what a person is telling you, check it with God’s word. The answer is in it.
For God has put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
porque Dios ha puesto en sus corazones el ejecutar su propósito: que tengan ellos un propósito unánime, y den su reino a la bestia hasta que las palabras de Dios se cumplan.
Letting go and letting God; that is sometimes very hard to do, but it is best! I know I have had to do exactly that with many situations that have arose in life. Satan is running to and fro trying to devour all that will allow him to. If we stay in the grace of Jesus, he can not harm us at all; that doesn’t mean he won’t try though. This is not our world! Our hope comes in things way above and beyond this. lets keep our eyes on Jesus!
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Porque los tales son falsos apóstoles, obreros fraudulentos, que se disfrazan como apóstoles de Cristo. Y no es de extrañar, pues aun Satanás se disfraza como ángel de luz. Por tanto, no es de sorprender que sus servidores también se disfracen como servidores de justicia; cuyo fin será conforme a sus obras.
Check them and check them. Be very careful because Satan is on the loose. There are many who say they preach Christ and are actually preaching Satan. I heard recently how a preacher through salt on the hair and heads of a congregation. Did Jesus or any of His disciples teach us to do such a thing? Yes, He said we are the salt of the Earth, but to throw salt on the people????? Be very careful; the liar is out to deceive and we must always be in God’s Word to make sure we are not dragged into the devil’s lair.
Do you think Jesus would have done this?
For though I would desire to boast, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he sees me to be, or that he hears of me. And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
Porque si quisiera gloriarme, no sería insensato, pues diría la verdad; mas me abstengo de hacerlo para que nadie piense de mí más de lo que ve en mí, u oye de mí. Y dada la extraordinaria grandeza de las revelaciones, por esta razón, para impedir que me enalteciera, me fue dada una espina en la carne, un mensajero de Satanás que me abofetee, para que no me enaltezca.
We are all just men; sinners! None of us, most including myself, can not be put in high places, because we will tumble off. Only Jesus/God can be put on that throne;only Jesus! Yes, I have my thorns in the flesh, as do all men and women. When we go to worship today, lets not worship the speaker; let us worship our Savior and Lord.
