Let the conclusion of all of these thoughts be heard:
Fear God and obey his commandments,
for this is what it means to be human.
For God will judge every deed,
along with every secret,
whether good or evil.
La conclusión, cuando todo se ha oído, es ésta:
teme a Dios y guarda sus mandamientos,
porque esto concierne a toda persona.
Porque Dios traerá toda obra a juicio,
junto con todo lo oculto,
sea bueno o sea malo.
Solomon was very wise, but he did have his issues like all of us. Much of Ecclesiastes can show depression and negative thoughts of life. It is here at the end of the book that Solomon comes back into very wise thoughts. We all have to stand, no kneel before God and face everything we have done throughout life. This can be a disturbing thought if really considered. God knows all and sees all. It doesn’t have to be disturbing though if we react with a desire to do right and to bow before Him and seek God’s forgiveness.
No matter what, who, why, how, or any of those, God sent His perfect Son for every one of us.
God, please help me to quit looking at others and to look in the mirror at me. Help me please to be right and clean in your eyes. Thank you Daddy God for holding me and growing me. Please keep showing me the path you want for me.
All Praise and Honor to God!
In Jesus’ Name
As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
Como no sabes cuál es el camino del viento, O cómo se forman los huesos en el vientre de la mujer encinta, Tampoco conoces la obra de Dios que hace todas las cosas.
There are those times when we think we completely understand God, and we have the world by the tail. It is usually at that moment when things start to come unraveled and fall apart. Why? Because we don’t have it all down pat! If we did, we wouldn’t be on this Earth. Who are we to question God? Who are we to argue with the way He wants things done? Do we know better? God forbid!
Father God, I ask your Holy forgiveness for the times I think my way is better. Please keep guiding and blessing me. Your way is the only way; the only way to glory and true freedom. Oh Father, thank you for your precious love of me.
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.
En aquel tiempo se levantará Miguel, el gran príncipe que vela sobre los hijos de tu pueblo. Será un tiempo de angustia cual nunca hubo desde que existen las naciones hasta entonces; y en ese tiempo tu pueblo será librado, todos los que se encuentren inscritos en el libro. Y muchos de los que duermen en el polvo de la tierra despertarán, unos para la vida eterna, y otros para la ignominia, para el desprecio eterno. Los entendidos brillarán como el resplandor del firmamento, y los que guiaron a muchos a la justicia, como las estrellas, por siempre jamás.
The words written here are about the last days; days that many feel we are now in. Have you chosen which side you want to be on? It is today that you need to know if you want to be righteous in front of God, or shameful and live in pain and disgust. God is gracious, but it takes a willing heart for Him to pour out that Grace.
Here for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be a burden, for I seek not what is yours but you. For children are not obligated to save up for their parents, but parents for their children. I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If I love you more, am I to be loved less?
He aquí estoy preparado para ir a vosotros la tercera vez, y no os seré gravoso; porque no busco lo vuestro, sino a vosotros: porque no han de atesorar los hijos para los padres, sino los padres para los hijos. Y yo de buena gana gastaré y seré desgastado por vuestras almas, aunque amándoos más, sea amado menos
God revealed this scripture to me this morning. I am made to bring my children into the Kingdom; to show them the path. God, please give me the wisdom and the words to be a blessing to those near me. I give You all thanks and praise my Lord. I know that You are holding me.
But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer. In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following. But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
Pero el Espíritu dice expresamente que en los postreros tiempos algunos apostatarán de la fe, escuchando a espíritus engañadores y a doctrinas de demonios; que con hipocresía hablarán mentiras; teniendo cauterizada su conciencia; prohibirán casarse, y mandarán abstenerse de alimentos que Dios creó para que con acción de gracias participasen de ellos los creyentes que han conocido la verdad. Porque todo lo que Dios creó es bueno, y nada es de desecharse, si se toma con acción de gracias; porque por la palabra de Dios y por la oración es santificado. Si esto propusieres a los hermanos, serás buen ministro de Jesucristo, nutrido en las palabras de la fe y de la buena doctrina, la cual has alcanzado. Mas desecha las fábulas profanas y de viejas, y ejercítate para la piedad; porque el ejercicio corporal para poco es provechoso; mas la piedad para todo aprovecha, pues tiene promesa de la vida presente y de la venidera.
It is very easy to get caught up in what seems to be spirituality, but is actually law and stress. Don’t eat that, don’t drink this. Do it this way or follow my way.
The truth is, we need to follow God’s way–Jesus Christ’s way; we need to listen and follow the Holy Spirit. Just because everyone else is being vegetarians doesn’t mean you will get closer to Heaven by doing the same. There is only one way to Heaven–through Jesus’ amazing Grace.
Let God, prayer and God’s Word (The Bible) guide you. Many will try to have you follow their way–it doesn’t mean they are right. There is only one who has it completely right—Jesus Christ our Lord!
Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
Anden sabiamente para con los de afuera, aprovechando bien el tiempo. Que su conversación sea siempre con gracia, sazonada como con sal, para que sepan cómo deben responder a cada persona.
Many don’t actually “listen” to our words, they watch our actions. If we act and treat others with God’s leading and wisdom, those people will want to have what we have. Think before you act and speak…better than think-PRAY!
Dead flies make the perfumer’s ointment give off a stench;
so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right,
but a fool’s heart to the left.
Even when the fool walks on the road, he lacks sense,
and he says to everyone that he is a fool.
Las moscas muertas hacen que el ungüento del perfumista dé mal olor;
un poco de insensatez pesa más que la sabiduría y el honor.
El corazón del sabio lo guía hacia la derecha,
y el corazón del necio, hacia la izquierda.
Aun cuando el necio ande por el camino,
le falta entendimiento
y demuestra a todos que es un necio.
This shows that a person can walk a life of wisdom, but one slip and a foolish action can be held against them forever. We must bow to God and seek His wisdom; His guidance, because we are all just fools without Him. Our wisdom is, in all actuality, just foolishness. I don’t want my life to stink, so I will allow God to have it.
But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, it is much truer that the members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary; and those members of the body which we deem less honorable, on these we bestow more abundant honor, and our less presentable members become much more presentable, whereas our more presentable members have no need of it. But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
Sin embargo, hay muchos miembros, pero un solo cuerpo. Y el ojo no puede decirle a la mano: “No te necesito;” ni tampoco la cabeza a los pies: “No los necesito.” Por el contrario, la verdad es que los miembros del cuerpo que parecen ser los más débiles, son los más necesarios; y las partes del cuerpo que estimamos menos honrosas, a éstas las vestimos con más honra. Así que las partes que consideramos más íntimas, reciben un trato más honroso, ya que nuestras partes presentables no lo necesitan. Pero así formó Dios el cuerpo, dando mayor honra a la parte que carecía de ella, a fin de que en el cuerpo no haya división, sino que los miembros tengan el mismo cuidado unos por otros.
Sometimes we think everyone in the church should be just like us. What makes us the right ones? Everyone in the church body has their place and their uses. No matter what you consider their downfalls, they are needed. Do we, instead of looking at their downfalls, look in the mirror at our own downfalls? We are one body and the body has many members, none of whom are the same, but we need each other. If you are the nose, you still owe respect to the little finger.
On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, he should come to Me, and drink! The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him.”
Y en el último día, el gran día de la fiesta, Jesús puesto en pie, exclamó en alta voz, diciendo: Si alguno tiene sed, que venga a mí y beba. El que cree en mí, como ha dicho la Escritura: “De lo más profundo de su ser brotarán ríos de agua viva.
Jesus made it so simple by coming to Earth, but we seem to want to still make it so difficult. All we need do is accept Him and drink of His waters. That is all.
