The fruit of the righteous is a tree of Life, And he who wins souls is wise. (Proverbs 11:30)

Beautiful Sunday

Hi everybody,
My family and I had visited a new church today "The Rock" is the biggest church in San Diego CA. pastor Miles is the founder and he is a very gifted pastor, he teaches very well and he is very energetic, I love when you have both in one.
The praise and worship is one of the best...The Word is alive in that church.
I'm going back to my little tiny church next Sunday, I love my family in my little church and I wouldn't change it for anything, God dwells in my tiny church also.
Thanks Lord for the great work You are doing in San Diego, CA. Thanks for all the churches in the world and thanks for the Freedom of this Country, where we can Pray and Worship for You as we please.

God is my Hope

Isaiah 40:29
He gives power to the weak, And to [those who have] no might He increases strength. 
Isaiah 40:30
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, 
Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew [their] strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
What a wonderful hope we have in our Lord and Father. No matter how dark our lives and future look, if we trust our Lord and Savior, nothing will stop us from the victory that God has giving us.
As longer we believe and put our trust in God nothing and no one can come against us. Some people might say; how come my life doesn't improve? what I say to that is...

1) Look at what kind of stuff you let into your life, that can be...trough tv, abuse of your own body (smoking,drinking alcohol, bad piercing, bad tattoos, the use of your tongue, no respect for others, etc.),  it can come from the way you let your kids behave, dress, talk to others etc.
2)If you live according to your own standards, you will never walk with God.
3)If you are trying to "keep up with the Joneses" you will never be happy and God won't be in your life.
4)God wants us to leave according to His Commandments...We all know that times have changed, peoples behavior have changed also, but God's Commandments don't change, we like it or not the Commandments still have the same meaning today as the days of  Moises. God never changes and His law has never changed.

We are not perfect, we are going to sin, we are not discussing that...what we are saying here is that if you know God, you will be more familiar with what God requires from us. We need to change from inside out, we need to take the Commandments to heart, never have the excuse "everybody else is doing it" because when the time of judgment comes "everybody else" won't be there to intermediate for you.

Be wise and try to do the things that pleases God, no this world.
When you come to know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, worldly things won't change, they are here to stay...but you are the one who's going to change, you are the one who has to make better decisions that will please God. You will have to start with your heart, then your mind and with that your walk with God will come easy.

This is the hope I have in the doesn't matter how bad our path looks like, God will always be there to comfort us.He will never abandon us.

Remebering 9/11

How can we forget that horrible day?
8 years had passed and it feels like if it was yesterday. The country mourn the dead and hopes that this will never happen again.
The truth is that it is only a matter of time...we don't know when, where, how many people will die next time this happen again.
Do not worry about all these un-certainties, we all know that satan never takes a break, he is working on preparing more attacks on us, to our great country.
You should worry about your soul, about where you want to go, if you are the next victim.
How prepare are you? What have you done to be ready, if you are the next victim of another attack?  How prepare are you to be face to face with your Creator? 
It is very important that you must think where you want to spend eternity.
I'm not here to debate if Heaven and hell are real, all I can say is that you might not have time to decide, death can come to anybody at anytime, like to those who perished in the twin tower, Pentagon and fly 93. 
Many people might be asking themselves of what had happened to the souls of all the victims...Many might believe that their death was so violent, that they deserve to be in Heaven with the Father and the Son-Jesus Christ, but the truth is that only God knows. God is the only one who knows each of the victims since the day they were born. 
For us the only way we can know is by reading the word of God, the Bible is very clear about what is it that we need to do, if we want to go to the Father in Heaven.
Read the word and be prepare, just in case you are the next victim.
John 10:7
Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 
  John 10:9
I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
  John 11:9
Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
   John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 
  John 11:26
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" 
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

The Wages of Sin

As far as I concerned we are all sinners, one way or another we had fallen short of God's grace.
Sin is like a heavy load of dirty laundry we carried around everywhere we go, sin can blind us and harden our hearts, sin can drive us to the bottom of the pit, by the time we realize we are at the bottom we had already build a big wall between God and us. Sin separated us from God.
Sin can separate us from people we care and love, sometimes that can be for ever...
Sometimes my husband and I get into some nonsense arguments and I get so angry at my husband (we know anger is a sin) that I can't think and I start sinning with my mouth and thoughts...all of the sudden I become self righteous (self righteousness is a sin) I start thinking that he has to come an apologize first...he is the one who's wrong not me (pride is a sin) after all I'm the one who's always right, I'm the one who God's loves the most, I'm the one who reads the Bible everyday (self righteousness is a sin) it is nothing wrong with me, my husband is the one who doesn't understands me, so that makes it his fault" this is so typical of me.
Thanks God the Holy  Spirit always convict me right away! I come to God and repent of all those horrible thoughts that I just had. I always pray that God will forgive me for offending the man He has giving me for a husband. I love my husband so much.
When people sin against us we have to forgive them, even if they don't repent of what they have done to us, we have to trust in the Lord that He will deal with them, and for us...we don't want to carry any load that separate us from God, so the best thing to do is forgive others, being angry at others is a sin.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin [is] death, but the gift of God [is] eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 7:28
For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed [me].

1John  1:8
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1John 2:1
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

First day of school

Thanks Father for giving me another day of life, another opportunity to be with my children and for one more advise I can give them. Thanks God for my blog readers, I pray for a wonderful day for all of them...I pray all this in Jesus mighty name Amen!
Today is the first day of school for my children, after a nice Summer brake it is hard to go back to the routine. I thanks my God for providing after I lost my job, He is the reason I was able to stay home with my children for this Summer...I'm so glad we did a lot of activities and for the hot days, we just stayed home.
God is so good...He even gave us a new car, witch we enjoyed so much!!
My husband is been such a great husband, he spend so many hours looking for the right car and the right price, I thank my God for giving me such a caring husband.
Now it is time for me to start looking for a new job. I know for sure that God has one for me already, I just need to do my part, I think I'm ready...if not please pray for me.
Everything for the Glory of God!!!

2SAMUEL 22:50
Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for [He is] good! For His mercy [endures] forever.

But thanks [be] to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Going back to God

I love to see people coming back to the Lord.
Some times, I wonder what make people go back to their old ways. After knowing the love of God and the eternal salvation that comes from the Son! what make them draft away. 
This verse can explain why many Christians go through these trials...

Matthew 13:22
Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.
The enemy doesn't want us to built a relationship with our Savior, when the enemy realize that he has lost another soul to God, he gets angry and he starts lying to us he tried to convince people that Christianity is the wrong way to go. 
This is how we find out if the word of God is like the seed the fell in good ground.

Matthew 13:23
But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands [it], who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."
What kind of seed are you? How is your relationship with God?
Do not waist time trying to find out if this church is bigger or smaller, or what denomination is better, these things are man made...our time here in this earth is short, don't be confuse with something so shallow and unimportant. If your heart is in the right place God will give you the Holly Spirit for you to have wisdom and nothing in this world will hinder your salvation.
Be like the prodigious son who repented of his sins, who came back to the Father with a humble heart.
God will through a party in Heaven and the Angels will rejoice when you are ready to come back. The Lord is waiting on you...
Luke 15:21
And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.'

Luke 15:22
"But the father said to his servants, 'Bring [fn] out the best robe and put [it] on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on [his] feet.

Luke 15:24
for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' And they began to be merry.

How to Walk with the Lord

I would like to talk a little bit about my walking with the Lord.
I'd been walking with the Lord for the past 16 years. I'd never stop believing in His promises.
He had been there for me, in the worse times of my life. He had take care of my enemies, one at the time. It is so amazing how God protect us and take our enemies away from our path. I have a great testimony about that particular case, where God showed me that He was there with me and He'd promised me that He will take care of it, not because I'm so special to Him, but because I had great faith in Him.
Nobody is more special to God...we are all on the same level at the foot of the Cross!!! the difference is of how much you trust Him, how much faith you have in Him, how much you love Him, how much time you spend with Him and how much time you spend in His word.
Do not consume your time doing worldly things, those things won't take you far.

Acts 20:30
"So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

James 1:23
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror.

1John 1:10
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

1John 2:5
But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

Revelations 19:13
He [was] clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

Revelations 20:4
And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then [I saw] the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received [his] mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
