There is no true faith if you do not feel love and compassion for your neighbor. Many of our brothers consider that salvation is obtained by grace and they are right. But a heart that does not have love for its neighbor and that is not capable of feeling compassion for the needy of the earth, will never be welcome in the presence of God. Because one of the most precious legacies that our savior left us was to love one another.
The Bible says in 1 John 4:7: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God. Everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God.
That’s right brothers. It is not possible for you to have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. It is not possible for you to say that you love Christ, when you do not put his teachings into action. Faith without works is dead! Love is so important that even Our Lord included it as a commandment to his disciples.
The bible in John 13: 34-36 says: I give you a new commandment, Love one another. As I have loved you, so love one another. The mutual love between you will be the badge by which the whole world will recognize you as my disciples.
The servants of Christ must be loving, humble, giving.
The servants of Christ must be loving, humble, generous, because that is the nature of the teacher. That is our legacy! It is also true that human nature tends to evil and inclines to vice, that is why overcoming our own limits and weaknesses every day is a great victory.
Following Christ is difficult, you fall a thousand times, but you get up with Christ. Sin tempts your thousands of times, but there are more times that you reject sin than the times that you succumb to sin. God knows that we are not perfect and so he chose us. Because He can see the best in us and He knows that there are more good things we can do than the evil that lurks within our hearts.
Prayer is the perfect medicine to purge the evil of the heart and to overcome sin and earthly temptations. Sin will always be there, at the door. Watch out brothers! Because the enemy walks like a roaring lion. The enemy knows that he has little time left. Let’s do as the teacher said; let us love one another, help the needy and pray. Because in the power of prayer is total victory over sin.
Sometimes I have these periods of mental block that prevent me from writing. Then I remember the words of a man of the Lord: Seek God in your weakness and you will be restored. There are days when it seems that every gift that God gave me dissolves into nothing. Then someone unknown appears; with the face of a loved one, who asks slightly awkward questions, he smiles and then disappears into nothingness as he himself arrived. Leaving a promise of an unfinished future, which only God knows what it means.
Then I remember what I do, who I am and what is the most important thing in my life. God has promised me a prophetic ministry and I have remembered it again today. And I thank the Highest for his gifts. Thank you, Jesus. My God writes straight on crooked lines. And in life everything is not what it seems to be. Even the genuine sounds fake like the discordant note of a guitar.
Seek God in your weakness. He is the way.
Most of us seek God for relief and consolation in weakness. Nobody comes to God with legitimate love. He will learn to love you along the way. He is understood when we dedicate ourselves to looking for him. Sometimes we have it all, but we feel empty inside. And we have a self-destructive power that binds us and drives us downhill.
That emptiness you feel is only filled by God. That sadness that from time to time comes without you knowing why and that makes you feel like nothing is worth it, only God removes it. In your search for happiness, you have risked a lot. You have had triumphs and joys. But the hours of immense pain you have spent alone, thinking if it was worth so much sacrifice. The pain of the soul is incomparable, especially when something inside you tells you that this is not the way, but you do not know how to make a 360-degree turn.
The path of faith is painful and sometimes lonely. But God is always there to sustain you in your weakness and victory after so much suffering is sweet. It is then that life makes sense and you can fully enjoy it with the people you love. Or you will love again, but this time in a different way. Like the calm that comes after a storm. Like the soft and warm rain that caresses the face. And not like the violent and torrential rain that nourishes the earth but also tears it apart, leaving it sterile, because it drags away in its fury what makes it fertile.
Many people will come into your life to destroy.
It’s time to leave behind the anger and fear of what you don’t know. God loves you and he has a wonderful plan for your life. Even illness will have no power over you. Do not worry! Just put your fears and hopes, your desires in God’s hands. He has been waiting for you for a long time. And despite everything you’ve done, he doesn’t give up on you like he didn’t give up on me. This is the word for you. God bless you brother. God will guide your steps.
Many times we ask ourselves, is prayer as powerful as many people think? And the answer is Yes. Throughout the Bible many passages refer to the importance of prayer even for the smallest things. Prayer with faith can do everything; And the greatest miracles happen when you pray with your heart and recognize that the Lord is the source of all power. Cry out to me and I will answer you, and I will teach you great and hidden things that you do not know. Says the Lord in Jeremiah 33:3
Is prayer really that powerful?
And before they cry out, I will answer; while they still speak I will have heard. Isaiah 65:24 These words remind us that God knows our needs. Let’s shed our pride and recognize the power of it so that our prayers are heard and answered. Again I tell you, said our Messiah, that if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my father who is in heaven. Because where are two or three gathered in my name. There I am in the midst of them. Matthew 18:19-20. And this is the trust we have in him; that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have made of Him. 1John 5:14-15
Prayer is so powerful that it knows no limits.
Pray without ceasing the Savior bequeathed us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Do not think that you have many sins in your heart. If your repentance is true our Lord will answer your prayers. Remember that from the vilest God chose to bear the glory of his name. The Lord says: I therefore want men to pray everywhere, raising holy hands, without anger or contention. 1 Timothy 2:8. Therefore I tell you that whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it, and it will come to you. Mark 11:24.
How should we pray according to the teachings of our Lord?
But you, when you pray, enter your room, and closed the door pray to your father who is in secret; and your father who sees in secret. He will reward you in public. And praying, do not use vain repetitions like the Gentiles who think that for their talk they will be heard. Matthew 6:6-7 I love Jehovah, for he has heard my voice and my supplications; because he has inclined his ear to me; therefore I will call on him all my days. Glory to thehighest today and always Amen.
It is very easy to find in the scriptures how the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is announced even a thousand years before his arrival. First in the book of Enoch written for a generation that in their time they called distant. And more recently in the book of Isaiah Both testimonies are precursors of the arrival of the Messiah our teacher. Isaiah 53: 1-5 shows us clearly what he had to suffer and the salvation that would bring on us all the pain that our Lord suffered.
Christ was despised and rejected among men.
Isaiah tells us that Christ was a man of sorrows, experienced in losses. Despite all the healings and miracles that he did in his time; in the moments of anguish that he had to suffer, all hid their face from him. He was looked down upon and was not appreciated. Everyone forgot the good that he did.
But, although we do not esteem him, he carried on him our diseases and suffered our pains. He was scourged and the wicked believed that he had been struck down by God. But Christ was wounded for our rebellions, scourged for our sins. The punishment of our peace was upon him. That is why by his stripes we were healed.
Christ did not complain during his hard journey to the crucifixion.
On the long road to his death, although he was distraught and grieved, he did not open his mouth. As a lamb he was led to the slaughter. He made his life an atonement for sin. And the will of the Lord was in his hand, and it prospered him. Christ is the way and the life. There is no salvation except through him. Only Christ will be able to justify us on the great day. The terrible day of the Lord. The Lord was counted among the sinners having borne the sin of many and having prayed for the transgressors.
Sometimes we get tired of fighting for what we think is right. Our faith begins to grow cold and we do not know how or when apathy and laziness fill our lives. It is then where we must ask ourselves what we are doing wrong. Why is the grace of God away from our life? What to do when we do not feel God?
We have all felt this way at some point in our lives, psychologically exhausted without knowing why. Falling again and again into the same sins that we said we would never commit again. It is like a state of no return that chills the faith, that hurts and makes you doubt everything that you once firmly believed.
Constant prayer is the answer to our problems
What to do when we do not feel God? Why is this happening to us? The first thing we must understand is that our prayer is no longer the same, or that our cry has been quenched. When prayer is lost, the enemy tries to take control. Then depression appears, laziness; And some of us even try to calm those feelings of frustration that we can’t understand with food. And we succumb to that depressed state and hurt ourselves more and more every day. Until we feel so guilty that we believe that God will not forgive us. We abandon the path and bring the enemy into our lives to destroy what little we have left of faith and self-esteem.
You are not alone in your weakness God is there.
So if you are having moments like this brother or sister reading this word, you have to pray! Life and the way to reach God are not easy and the enemy is using all his power to destroy you. Our most powerful weapon is prayer, raise your cry that our God will not let you down.
What to do when we do not feel God? Pray.
My God, Lord Jesus Christ: you who see our weakness and our sorrow, forgive our sins, which are many and use your powerful hand to remove from me and my family all the damage that the enemy wants to do us. There have been times when I think you have forgotten me and anguish has surrounded me. But now I understand that you never left and that I let my voice fade. This is my prayer of reconciliation, my father. You love me so much that you forgive all my weaknesses, even though I don’t deserve it. I’ve been weak Lord. And I call on your strength because I just can’t. But I can do everything in you Jesus who strengthens me. Lift me up with your strength Lord and free me from all demonic bondage! Free me from all negative thoughts, free me from all filth. Separate and cast out of me everything that is not of God and allow me to finally be that new creature that by your love has been cleansed and liberated forever. May your powerful hand never leave my side. and allow Lord that when I feel oppressed and mention your name; Your mighty hand always save me from the traps of the enemy. Amen.
There is no true faith, if you do not feel love and compassion for your neighbor. Many of our brothers consider that salvation is obtained by grace and they are right. But a heart that has no love for its neighbor and that is unable to feel compassion for the needy on earth will never be welcomed into God’s presence. Because one of the most precious legacies our savior left us was loving one another. The bible says in 1 John 4: 7: Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God. Everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God. That’s right brothers. You cannot have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. You can’t say you love Christ when you don’t put his teachings into action. Faith without works is dead! Love is so important that even Our Lord included it as a commandment to his disciples. The bible says in John 13: 34-36: I give you a new commandment: Love one another, as I have loved you, so love one another. The mutual love between you will be the hallmark by which everyone will recognize you as my disciples.
The servants of Christ should be loving, humble, and giving.
The servants of Christ must be loving, humble, giving, because that is the nature of the teacher. That is our legacy! What are we battling against evil and sin within ourselves day by day? That is also true, human nature tends to evil and is inclined to vice, that is why overcoming our own limits and weaknesses is a great victory. Following Christ is difficult, you fall a thousand times, but you get up with Christ. Sin tempts you thousands of times, but more times you reject sin than you succumb to it. God knows we are not perfect and that is how he chose us. Because He can see the best in us and He knows that there are more good things we can do than the evil that lurks within our hearts. Prayer is the perfect medicine to purify the evil of the heart and to overcome sin and earthly temptations. Sin will always be there, at the door. Be careful brothers! Because the enemy walks like a roaring lion. Because he knows his time is short. Let’s do as the teacher said; Let’s love one another, help the needy, and pray. Because in the power of prayer is total victory over the enemy.
What happens when you ignore God’s call? This is a question that many of us often ask ourselves. Many times the Lord sends us his servants to preserve our way from evil, to warn us of the plans that the enemy forges to destroy us. But we are blinded by what the world gives us and we ignore the warnings and messages of help we receive from Jesus. Many of us ignore the word. Others even mock the messages of salvation. And only when calamity knocks on our doors, we remind ourselves of God, and cry out to the Lord for help. But at that time, not all of us received the miracle we hope for. Because faith in God and love of neighbor; It is the basis for communion with our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is not the one who puts difficulties in your way.
When we do not receive the word of the Lord once this word has been sent to us; the road is long, difficult, and difficulties sometimes overcome us. But it is not God who makes our path difficult. The person who works to destroy us is the devil. The enemy uses our own weaknesses and ambitions to make us lose the grace that God gave us. But it is good that they know that not only the one who does not receive the word is attacked by Satan. When is greater the faith of a Christian, more difficulties the enemy will put in his way to bring him down. The life of a Christian is not easy, and many tears and losses will accompany him along the way. But he will also be accompanied by the joy of the Lord, which is the greatest happiness to which human beings can aspire. The joy of the Lord will be part of your life. Because the Lord does not abandon his faithful and at the time of your trial he will be with you to support you and give you victory.
What happens when you ignore God’s call?
The word of God says: When your fear comes as destruction, when your calamity comes like a whirlwind, and tribulationand anguish come upon you. Then they will call me and I will not answer, they will seek me diligently and will not find me.
Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord. They did not want my advice and they despised all my reproof. Then they will eat the fruit of their way and be satisfied with their own advice. Because his waywardness will kill the naive and his slovenliness will spoil the foolish. But whoever listens to me will be calm without fear of evil. Proverbs 1: 27-33
Many times we feel oppressed by circumstances. And we wonder how to pray biblically speaking. Both Christians and non-Christians; They receive attacks from the enemy, at work, finances, relationship and family. And it is up to us whether we stay on the floor or get up. A prayer of faith is the best way to win a battle. And there are different prayers for each circumstance of life, As the bible shows us in the book of psalms; so we must pray biblically for our prayers to be answered. Do you feel that everyone is against you and that nothing is prospering? Do your enemies wish for your ruin? Do people you helped now speak ill of you because you have decided to get ahead? Do people who helped you for a while hate you because you have become independent and want to continue to prosper? I will teach you how to pray biblically for God to hear you.
How to pray biblically for divine protection.
Wash your body first. Then enter your room and on your knees: Lord I humble myself at your feet recognizing that you are my savior and that there is no way to eternal life but in you. Listen to my affliction, my father, and I thank you for allowing me to pray and be at your feet today.
Psalm 3: 1-8
Oh Lord, how many have my adversaries multiplied. Many are those who rise up against me. Many are those who say there is no salvation for him. Selah. But you, the Lord, are a shield around me; my glory and the one who lifts my head. With my voice I cried out to Jehovah and He answered me from his holy mountain. Selah. I lay down and slept, and woke up because Jehovah sustained me. I will not fear 10 thousand people who will place a place against me. Arise Jehovah: save me my God. For you have struck all my enemies on the cheeks and the teeth of the wicked you have broken. Salvation is Jehovah’s. Your blessing be upon me and your people. Selah.
Sometimes I wonder why the book of Enoch harbors so much controversy. We know that the book is almost 5000 years old. If it was made by someone other than Enoch, which is what the skeptics allege ¿To what end would a man who lived more than 5000 years ago do something like this? It is irrelevant whether or not the one who wrote these events was Enoch. Because the age of the book is not questioned but its author. The relevant is that this ancient text also speaks of our savior Jesus Christ and of his second coming. It is a text that talks about the apocalypse, long before the apostle John had the visions about the end times.
¿Is the book of Enoch not credible in many of its parts?
250 years ago, no one would believe that you could travel to the moon, that there were wireless phones and Wi-Fi, much less that there were electric cars like the Tesla. Surely if someone had talked about these technological advances during the Spanish inquisition; he would have been burned as a heretic at the stake or forced to die in a madhouse. And yet here we are in the age of technology. Therefore, we must focus on the divine message and not on what we believe or not that does not exist. Because what is impossible for our generation today will be a fact for the future generation. And what today may be impossible for those of us who do not live in the past was surely a reality for our ancestors.
The book of Enoch does not degrade the gospel message.
Of course the Book of Enoch does not misrepresent the Gospel. It complements it. It is our past, the past of the first followers of the living God. It shows us what was before. And it gives us the Hope of the arrival in the world of the Messiah and of the new covenant. The book of Enoch is studied to know the past. We all read the Pentateuch because it tells us about the beginnings of creation and to get to know our God better. So also the book of Enoch tells us about our first ancestors. What does the book of Enoch speak of giants that inhabited the earth, of fallen angels and other horrible things? Our Old Testament says that God parted the Red Sea for Israel to pass through and that the Spirit of God followed them in a pillar of fire at night to give light and a pillar of cloud in the day. Our God fought by sending fire from heaven against the enemies of Israel, feeding them with manna 40 years in the desert. And we believe it by faith. If we believe in that we can believe that there were giants, I don’t see the big difference. Furthermore, the descendants of giants lived in Hebron the city that Caleb took for his descendants.
The book of Enoch is just knowing the past.
We know that Christ with his death sealed a new covenant of salvation for humanity. The book of Enoch is not to be preached. But if God allowed it to survive until today it is because a story that everyone wants to erase must be known. Because it’s terrifying to think that things like that once walked the face of the earth. Our life is past present and future. Wisdom and knowledge are gifts from God and we cannot be amazed at anything. So read, discover, but never turn away from God. When you go to read books like this; ask God for discernment and wisdom. There is a lot of horror in this book, incredible things and some painful ones. But the wisdom of God is in him. We are imperfect beings that despite suffering and miracles our hearts are hard as stone. May God have mercy on us.
It is well specified in the bible that the lazy Christian achieves nothing, and that all the potential that God has put into him is wasted. However, it is difficult but not impossible to reverse this situation. It does not mean that the lazy Christian does not love God. But the spirit of laziness does not let him advance, he feels tired, unmotivated, wants to start to improve, but temptations appear that divert his attention from him, he becomes distracted and again loses his way. The lazy person suffers, feels useless, repents and asks the Lord for help to change his life because he alone cannot. He falls over and over into lassitude and monotony until he gives up. So he sleeps a lot, everything causes him apathy and physical and moral ruin comes over him step by step; until there is no way out but to raise your voice again and cry out to God for help. Or drop into despair and live a life without hope.
Constant prayer is the lazy Christian’s weapon.
The only thing that can change a lazy Christian’s life is constant prayer. Pray in the morning, in the afternoon, at night. Prayer is the only thing that can free the lazy person from the spirit of ruin and stagnation. Because this evil spirit is strong and once he has his prey he does not let go. I am a lazy Christian on the road to recovery and I know it is hard to get over it. And when I don’t want to get up in the daytime I cry out: Holy Spirit of God help me, when I run out of inspiration I cry out: Jesus Christ help your servant Lord. And I have been able to understand that, if I cry out with faith, the Lord hears me; and he protects me from the spirit that wants to take my salvation and that wants to destroy my life. The spirit of laziness is worse than simple sin, simple sin is confessed and the Lord cleanses you according to your faith and repentance. Laziness destroys yourself step by step. Today you say I will sleep a little more, tomorrow you say I will not go to work, then you feel spiritually and physically tired. And the time comes when you just eat, sleep, cry, feel miserable and depression rears its head to destroy what little is left of your self-esteem.
Today is the time to get laziness out of your life!
Tell laziness: Demon you’re done here because I’m going to pray to the Lord until you release me. Because God said that he who asks receives, he who seeks finds and to whom he calls it will be opened. And I am asking God to take you out of my life, I am looking for the Holy Spirit to sustain me in my weakness and I am calling Jesus Christ to take my hand and guide me along the path of life. Satan out of my life in the name of Jesus. And remember brother that prayer will set us free. At the beginning you have to pray at all times. It will be a heavy task but you will reap the fruits of your perseverance as I am reaping mine. God does not want us to get lost, and the Lord will be there to sustain us. Start today, don’t leave it until tomorrow! It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to pray, just say what you feel, God listens to the heart. The Lord is waiting for you He sees you in your despair and He is only waiting for you to cry out in faith. It does not matter if you feel that on the first day the second day, or the third day God does not listen to you. He is always listening and in his moment he will liberate you as I feel liberated step by step. Be constant in your prayer and prays as if your life depended on it. Because the devil wants to destroy you. The devil does not want you to prosper, he does not want you to be saved. When you begin to pray, many things will appear that appear to be good. Don’t be fooled! They are lies of the devil to keep you from prayer. Persevere in prayer brothers an sisters and you will achieve victory. Amen Jesus.
