“But he who kills an ox is like one who slays a man;
He who sacrifices a lamb is like the one who breaks a dog’s neck;
He who offers a grain offering is like one who offers swine’s blood;
He who burns incense is like the one who blesses an idol.
As they have chosen their own ways,
And their soul delights in their abominations,
So I will choose their punishments
And will bring on them what they dread.
Because I called, but no one answered;
I spoke, but they did not listen.
And they did evil in My sight
And chose that in which I did not delight.”
Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at His word:
“Your brothers who hate you, who exclude you for My name’s sake,
Have said, ‘Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy.’
But they will be put to shame.
El que sacrifica buey, es como si matase un hombre; el que sacrifica oveja, como si degollase un perro; el que ofrece presente, como si ofreciese sangre de puerco; el que quema incienso, como si bendijese a un ídolo. Y porque han escogido sus propios caminos, y su alma amó sus abominaciones,
también yo escogeré sus escarnios, y traeré sobre ellos lo que temieron; porque llamé, y nadie respondió; hablé, y no oyeron; antes hicieron lo malo delante de mis ojos, y escogieron lo que no me agrada.
Oíd palabra de Jehová, vosotros los que tembláis a su palabra: Vuestros hermanos que os aborrecen, y os echan fuera por causa de mi nombre, dijeron: Jehová sea glorificado. Mas Él se mostrará para alegría vuestra, y ellos serán confundidos.
Hypocrisy can be a terrible thing. There are many, and I have been guilty of such, who try to tell others how to do it-how to live in God’s ways, but they do not look in the mirror of their own souls. None of us completely know what all God is doing. He uses the simple things to aggravate the worldly wise things.
It is quite evident in this that we should follow God’s path for our own lives, but do not necessarily think that your neighbor should follow that same path.
It is our position to share our gift of grace with others, in love…but not to tell them how they need to live the life God has for them.
The law is the law….and Grace is grace-the gift of our wonderful Savior!
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.
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Además digo: Entre tanto que el heredero es niño, en nada difiere del siervo, aunque es señor de todo; mas está bajo tutores y mayordomos hasta el tiempo señalado por el padre. Así también nosotros, cuando éramos niños, estábamos en esclavitud bajo los rudimentos del mundo. Mas venido el cumplimiento del tiempo, Dios envió a su Hijo, hecho de mujer, hecho bajo la ley, para que redimiese a los que estaban bajo la ley, a fin de que recibiésemos la adopción de hijos. Y por cuanto sois hijos, Dios envió el Espíritu de su Hijo a vuestros corazones, el cual clama: Abba, Padre. Así que ya no eres siervo, sino hijo; y si hijo, también heredero de Dios por Cristo.
It is easy to think we are better than other people, or they may think they are better than us. Money and possessions don’t make us better. Power doesn’t make us better. Nothing makes us better than the other human. We are all children of the Living God. Whatever we have done and whatever we will do will not make anyone better. It just comes down to accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior, and mind you….that doesn’t make you better than the person who has not yet done that. When we completely realize that, there is a new freedom that only the Holy Spirit can provide.
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.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Mas el ángel les dijo: No temáis, porque he aquí, os traigo buenas nuevas de gran gozo que serán para todo el pueblo; porque os ha nacido hoy, en la ciudad de David, un Salvador, que es Cristo el Señor.
Today is the day we celebrate this wonderful birth; the birth of Jesus Christ who came to be a sacrifice for all of us. We give gifts and build trees, but do we really understand what this day is all about? God gave us the greatest gift of all by offering His Son to be our Savior. What kind of gift are we giving Him today? Praise You Father and praise You Jesus!
