Ephesians 5: 15-17

Happy Thanksgiving!

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Por tanto, tened cuidado cómo andáis; no como insensatos, sino como sabios,  aprovechando bien el tiempo, porque los días son malos.  Así pues, no seáis necios, sino entended cuál es la voluntad del Señor

It is by the Bible, God’s Word and through prayer that we can walk in wisdom. The world and others may try to make us seem like fools, but as long as we stay in Him, He will carry us thru. The days ARE evil.

Jeremiah 51:15-16

He made the earth by His power,

established the world by His wisdom, 

and spread out the heavens by His understanding. 

When He thunders, 

the waters in the heavens are in turmoil,

and He causes the clouds

to rise from the ends of the earth.

He makes lightning for the rain

and brings the wind from His storehouses. 

Él es el que hizo la tierra con su poder, el que afirmó el mundo con su sabiduría, y extendió los cielos con su inteligencia.  Cuando emite su voz, tumulto de aguas se producen en los cielos, y hace subir las nubes de lo último de la tierra; Él hace relámpagos con la lluvia, y saca el viento de sus depósitos.

God is all powerful and we sometimes act as if we have control. We have no control. All is in His hands. As Obama tries to “fix” Syria, we must pray that God does the work. It is not America who needs to “fix” it, God will do the “fixing.” If God’s people will bow to Him and seek His wisdom, all will come out the way it is supposed to. the key is to seek Him. Help others know Him, and we will overcome.

Ephesians 6:12

View the inspirational video One Solitary Life by Simple Truths

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Porque nuestra lucha no es contra sangre y carne, sino contra principados, contra potestades, contra los poderes de este mundo de tinieblas, contra las huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestiales

We must always remember this scripture when we are tempted to argue or debate against people who are lost. We are not battling against people, but against forces that control them. We can only defeat these forces through prayer and the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Give the battle to God, and you will win!

Ephesians 1:18-23

18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

18 Mi oración es que los ojos de vuestro corazón sean iluminados, para que sepáis cuál es la esperanza de su llamamiento, cuáles son las riquezas de la gloria de su herencia en los santos, 19 y cuál es la extraordinaria grandeza de su poder para con nosotros los que creemos, conforme a la eficacia de la fuerza de su poder, 20 el cual obró en Cristo cuando le resucitó de entre los muertos y le sentó a su diestra en los lugares celestiales, 21 muy por encima de todo principado, autoridad, poder, dominio y de todo nombre que se nombra, no sólo en este siglo sino también en el venidero. 22 Y todo sometió bajo sus pies, y a El lo dio por cabeza sobre todas las cosas a la iglesia, 23 la cual es su cuerpo, la plenitud de aquel que lo llena todo en todo.

Do we always realize just how much power and might our Lord Jesus has? God raised Him from the dead and gave Him all. He loves us and wants the very best for us. Why don’t we allow Him to work in our lives? Why is our faith so small at times? Trust in Jesus; He can and will do the best for us.

1 John 4:1-3

1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2Hereby know you the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 Amados, no creáis a todo espíritu, sino probad los espíritus si son de Dios; porque muchos falsos profetas han salido por el mundo. 2 En esto conoced el Espíritu de Dios: Todo espíritu que confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, es de Dios; 3 y todo espíritu que no confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, no es de Dios; y éste es el espíritu del anticristo, del cual vosotros habéis oído que ha de venir, y que ahora ya está en el mundo.

We must be wise in who we believe. The Bible has every answer. If something said or preached doesn’t line up with the Word of God, it is false. Don’t be scared to question if something doesn’t seem right. Look in your Bible. The answers are all there.

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:

John 18: 36-37

36Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world.”

37Pilate said, “So you are a king?”

Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”

36 Jesús respondió: Mi reino no es de este mundo. Si mi reino fuera de este mundo, entonces mis servidores pelearían para que yo no fuera entregado a los judíos; mas ahora mi reino no es de aquí. 37 Pilato entonces le dijo: ¿Así que tú eres rey? Jesús respondió: Tú dices que soy rey. Para esto yo he nacido y para esto he venido al mundo, para dar testimonio de la verdad. Todo el que es de la verdad escucha mi voz.

His Kingdom is not here, but it is Heaven. We do not fight for a Kingdom here, but we should be fighting for Heaven. Our fight is not with guns and bombs, but with the Sword of the Word and with prayer. Keep fighting, we must overcome. Jesus reigns!

2 Corinthians 7:10-11

For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation not to be regretted: but the sorrow of the world works death. For behold this same thing, that you sorrowed after a godly sort, what earnestness it worked in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what full punishment! In all things you have proved yourselves to be pure in this matter.

Porque la tristeza que es conforme a la voluntad de Dios produce un arrepentimiento que conduce a la salvación, sin dejar pesar; pero la tristeza del mundo produce muerte. Porque mirad, ¡qué solicitud ha producido en vosotros esto, esta tristeza piadosa, qué vindicación de vosotros mismos, qué indignación, qué temor, qué gran afecto, qué celo, qué castigo del mal! En todo habéis demostrado ser inocentes en el asunto.

There is a lot of sorrow. Some sorrow is of God and some is of the world. God does not want us to have sorrow, but He uses it for His good and for a tool to fulfill His Kingdom. The world’s sorrow is not for us who trust in Jesus. There is good and bad of all; look at the words listed in the last half of this scripture. there is good indignation; there is good revenge. If we allow the Holy Spirit to guide us, the good will overwhelm the world’s ways. We are overcomers in Christ Jesus, our Lord!

Mark 16:15

And he said unto them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura.

We are commissioned to tell the world what Jesus did for us. Are we? Are we telling all? It is our responsibility and we will answer to Him if we were or were not. How will you answer?

Luke 9:25-26

For what is a man profited, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or suffer loss? For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.

Pues, ¿de qué le sirve a un hombre haber ganado el mundo entero, si él mismo se destruye o se pierde? Porque el que se avergüence de mí y de mis palabras, de éste se avergonzará el Hijo del Hombre cuando venga en su gloria, y la del Padre, y la de los santos ángeles.

This world is not our world. We are here for a purpose. We are to help others know God; help others know Jesus. Being worried what others think of us is a lie from the devil.
