The Snare of the Fowler II

On the first part of today’s study we analyze Psalm 91; which says that the Lord will deliver us from the snare of the fowler and on Psalm 124 it is describe if this snare already trapped us, it could be broken in the name of the Lord. God gives us preventive and curative medicine.  

We also read in the Bible the prototypes of the fowlers, among them Nimrod, Saul, Esau and the ones mentioned in Jeremiah 16:16, that are sent to Israel after they rejected the fishermen. Those fishermen are those who announce the gospel of the Lord to everyone so they receive Him and accept Him, since they didn’t do so they have to face the fowler. This is a Biblical principle because the Lord said: I was sent by my Father (as fisherman) didn’t receive, there will come another one in his own name (the fowler) and you will receive him. The fowler is a figure of the enemy the antichrist and the fisherman is the figure of our Lord, that is why we read in the gospel that the Lord was an expert fisherman; He told His disciples where to fish, and where to find the fish with the coin to pay the tax, also when He resurrected He introduce Himself as a fisherman, He prepared fish to eat. The Lord is a fisherman and the enemy a fowler and it is in us to decide to whom we will face. The Lord tells us: I will make you fishermen not fowlers.

The Snare of the Fowler I

From the beginning of humanity there have been hunters over this land and we know that, spiritually, that God doesn’t like them. In Jeremiah 16:16, describing Israel God told them: “I will send you Fishermen and then hunters”, we understand that first He was sending an opportunity, sending the fishermen, that are the evangelists, however Israel rejected the one who was sent, the Lord Jesus Christ, but by the mercy of God, this meant for us, the gentiles, that were included in this wonderful catch. When Israel didn’t obey and rejected the Lord, God decided to send them hunters. If we make a time line: we know that from the first coming of the Lord; up the 70th week of Daniel, God has constantly sent fishermen to the people of Israel, but they rejected, because they reject everything that is called “Christian”, because for them this name represents the catholic religion, because of the crusades and all the atrocities they made against them. But we know that everything that happens to Israel is a shadow for us, the ones who were called to be closed to God.

Going into the Kingdom

As born-again Christians, our goal should be to be transform, until we get to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; otherwise we could not engage into that, to which we were called for.

Romans 11:24 NASB  For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?

This verse says that: we were spiritual grafted in our Lord Jesus Christ, in such a way that we cannot stagnate and remain in the same condition, but we must advance in our transformation.

The Restoration of the Old Gate

As a church our target is working in the restoration and as we have seen, it is a harder process than edifying something new. For instance, if we take a ten years old child to educate him it would be harder than if we take a newborn child in our home to implant our customs. Then we talk about edify and restore these are parallel things, although they are not the same, as we said, restore is a harder process and it is he Lord who can do the work to recover the lost things.

When we talk about physical work as building a temple, we must not lost of sight that the real objective is edify the mystic body of Christ, that at the end of all is the most important thing. The tool that God gave to us the ministers to guide the flock is the voice; we can confirm this when we read in the Bible: “…My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me…”

The restoration theme is almost endless, and it demand us to examine many factors, such as: what is what we have to restore? Who will be restored and how will they be restored? The restoration cannot be made by our own strength, but will only be possible through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Before Repentance (II)

In the Bible we read that King David sinned terribly, even more than king Saul, but why was Saul rejected and David wasn’t? David not only adulterer and also murdered Bathsheba’s husband after he took her from him, he committed genocide because he wanted to hide his fault he committed iniquity, because he gave Uriah the letter where he wrote his death sentence. This is a huge iniquity; it was an unforgivable sin for us, but for God forgave him. But Saul was not forgiven even he didn’t do as David’s however he was removed and thrown out of the kingdom. When we see their attitude after their sin is where we define why one was forgiven and the other didn’t.

Before Repentance (I)

In the middle of all the situations we live in our Christian life we realize that the place where the toughest battles take place is in our mind; this happens because our mind is an entrance door to our spirit, soul and body. We can see the importance that the mind has for the Lord Jesus Christ when He said which one was the most important commandment; He said that it is to love God with all of our spirit, soul, and body and with our mind. In the book of Deuteronomy are only mentioned the first three but He included to love God with all of our mind because this one has a important place in the restoration of our integral being.

The Way to Repentance

It is necessary that we know what the Bible says about repentance, because in some point we could interpret this situation as if someone was crying, but this is something that goes beyond just cry, even when we show some tears generally come along with repentance, but we can’t generalize, this is the reason why some confuse repentance with remorse, for example: Judas, in some Bible versions show that he repented but it didn’t work, so what he felt was just remorse. That is why we have to consider that repentance is a miracle that not too many people could experiment, and this is why we hear people saying that they do not regret of anything they have done in their lives, they do not know the miracle of repentance.

The Bible says in the book of Hebrews that Esau, cried, but he didn’t reach repentance.

KJG Hebrews 12:17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Knowing the Time

We want to emphasize from what we had learnt from our pastor, about the events that show us the accomplishment of the returning of the Lord, we have learnt that there are six scatological scenarios that allow us to discern the time for those events. The Lord hasn’t dated the day of His returning but we know that the coming events will show us the light or the sign, when He will return.

In the Israel scenario is impressive what is happening, however the world is distracted with some kinds of soccer event. The conflict between the people from Israel and Palestine, it´s terrible and part of the accomplishment of the biblical prophecy that Israel will be alone. The news show that Israel as a country that reacts with cruelty, this is because the air attack over Gaza, even the news are requesting to Israel to stop all the cruelty that they are doing, also the president of the most powerful country of the world has declared about this attack, but he didn’t say anything when the Ukraine conflict started, because in Gaza are interests over them.

Do you know about God or Do you know God?

At times, we do not use adequately the word “knowledge” given that, we think that to know of the existence of someone, and to know someone directly is the same concept; but the reality is totally different to what we believe. For example: when we hear of a recognized actor through the entire world, and we say that we know him, just from the fact that we have seen that actor in his movies; however, in reality is that we only know of his existence, but we do not know the person directly, however, in reality we cannot say that we know that person.

In our spiritual life we could believe that we know God, because of the fact that we have been in a congregation for many years receiving the Word of God, and even serving the Lord; however, the possibility exists that we only know of God but, we do not know God.

The Excellency of Love

Talking to the family is talking to the society itself, it is something that we have known since our first year of school, where we have being told that the family is the base of the society. In the world there are violence, vices, debauchery that day a day are getting worse; with all these we see that the sings of the secret  returning of the Lord Jesus Christ are complying.
