The Scepter of the Noble (I)
We have studied that when the Lord reached us we were chosen among the vile and underestimated from the Word (1 Corinthians 1:26-29); we were not considered as noble or wise, however we do not have to remain in this stage because the Bible says that if we lack on wisdom we must ask for it with faith to the Lord and receive it (James 1:5); God already took us out from the dust and the dirt to sit us among nobles (1 Samuel 2:8). If the Lord took us out from sin so we couldn’t continue being sinners, because old things passed and all were made new in Him, our hope is to reach perfection as He is. We can’t continue being the same as we were before encountering the Lord, if we were sinners now we have to be saints because we were taken out from Egypt therefore we have to repel from our heart all evidence from this slavery place.
We have a noble title, spiritually speaking, that maybe has no importance to men, but for the celestials powers it is recognized, so we have to behave as nobles and not as a commoner. One of the tools, that as nobles, we have is the scepter so we can use it in our walk to the Celestial Place, but we have to know how to use it.
The Servants of the Ascension (II)
We know we are living the last times and as a guide that God left for us on this earth as a watch is called Israel, at telling us that Israel is the fig tree when its brand is yet tender, and put forth leaves, we will know that summer is nigh: (Matthew 24:32) that is why that as a church we must pay attention to the events in that part of the world.
There is been a big persecution against the Israelites around the world, many Jews had being murdered in many cities, their synagogues have being victims of vandalism, just like happen before the Second World War in Germany, when the persecution against the Jews started which ended with the holocaust where died more than 6 million of Jews. Notwithstanding the persecution of this times is different, because this is a persecution around the world, because now the humanity has turn their back against the people of Israel; accusing them of genocide against the people of Palestine. Spain is pressing Israel and they will not sell them weapons anymore, England will also stop selling weapons to them if they attack Gaza again and United States is in favor to not help them anymore. Israel is staying alone and that is what is known as the Jacob´s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7). We must pray for Jerusalem and for Israel because God chose them and His people; we must not raise our voice against them, because God said that He would not reject them.
The Favorable Year
In chapter 61 of the Book of Isaiah which speaks of this theme, as the Agreeable year or the Favorable year; and also it was one of the firsts Proclaims of our church, and based in the favorable year were the past seventeen proclaims done by us, conducted by the Holy Spirit. The first proclaim was “The Favorable Year of the Lord” but, it contains all the rest which have taken place. This favorable, or agreeable year has been ongoing for two thousand years, and when the Lord Jesus Christ Himself stood up in the Synagogue and proclaimed the Word in this chapter, and where it says: the Favorable Year or the Lord, but not mentioning what it says about the year of vengeance, and then afterwards He said, that such scripture was fulfilled at that moment. However, let’s analyze what has happened with humanity during these 2,000 years ever since the Lord Jesus made this proclaim? Let’s look to what the Bible says to that respect.
Luke 4:18 NASB “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED…
In which House do you live?
When we build a home, the first questions that the Lord asks us are: Who taught you to lead a family? It could be that we received the teachings from our parents, or our spouse´s parents, or our friends. It frequent that we start this little enterprise called family and we do not have all the information that it requires, for instance; we do not know the likes and preferences of our spouse, and among this are things that bother one to another, realizing that things are not like we thought they were, and everything because there were not a previous teaching.
The first words mentioned in the Book of Genesis are “…In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth…” in Hebrew it starts in the same way, and the first letter of the first word means Bayith or Beth (house) this teaches us the genetic reflected in the book of Genesis, was the idea in which God manifested His whish of having a house where dwell with us here on earth, in such way that the meaning of family and house is not new, it is a meaning that comes from the Olam (the eternal).
We all have a house where to live in, and what God whish is that we analyze what kind of house do we have, taking the Bible as basis, where there are good and bad houses, for instance; one of the good houses is Bethel (house of God), Bethany (house of rest), Bethlehem (house of the bread), notwithstanding, it is necessary to know that there were also houses that there were not good. Let´s see some examples of them.
The Destroyer's Gate
Nahum 2:1 ESV The scatterer has come up against you. Man the ramparts; watch the road; dress for battle; collect all your strength.
The word scatterer means: One who separates, one who destroys dividing in pieces. The scatterer is a power who in occasions acts together with the accuser, and the condemner.
1 Corinthians 10:10 NKJV nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer.
Gossip is one of the activities shown by a person, which opens doors for the destroyer; the issue is that sometimes we do not pay enough attention to gossip, and we could be falling in it without even noticing it.
The Transformation before the Transformation II
The stage of the Church on this world is about to finish and we believe we are the last generation the Lord Jesus Christ spoke, saying that nothing will happen without this things to happen. It is necessary that over this generation be poured a series of blessings, because the Bible says that where sin is flowing; grace overflows and in the final time the increase of iniquity will be so much that the love of many will cool down. We have learned that the transgression becomes sin and the practice of sin becomes iniquity; so iniquity is a higher level of sin. So if sin will increase in the final time the grace of the Lord will also increase.
In the first part of this study we say that in 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 God chose the worst from the world, but in 1 Samuel 2:8, according to the version “Serafín Ausejo”; we read that He took us out from the dirt to move us and sit among noble, so we have to analyze, that according to the Scriptures, how royalty behave so we behave as one of them, we have to clear up that we have made royalty by the Lord.
As the Lightning II
When the Lord Jesus Christ explained the parable of the sower to the disciples, described in the Gospel of Mathew chapter 13, He called attention to the factor that provoked the people who received the Word but it was not fruitful because of the lack of understanding of the Word; therefore, it is fundamental that as a church of Christ, that we can have the revelation of the Scriptures.
In the Social web, it has been the circulation of a video of the Apostle Othoniel Rios Paredes talking about the final times and the things which would be happening to the nation of Israel. It is necessary to have clear that such video has the last news, with visual recompilations that in recent days have taken place in Israel, and a study given by the Apostle Othoniel Rios of many years ago, when he was still alive.
As the Lightning
It is important, as primary ministers of the Lord, constantly to check over our camp and analyze how we are behaving with others, however; first we have to consider ourselves. The consequence to not know who we are or what we have to do in this period of time, is to be like other people, they do not know when our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back, when is the parousia, so they are shake from side to another with all the wiles that the world is handling now.
This period of time we are living now, is definitive, it means that is going to define us, but also is a definitive period; it will put everything in its place and will prepare to everyone, to the group that it corresponds to be at.
Sons and Daughters of Encouragement
The church does not have problems; families do, that is why it is necessary to understand that God will edify us first individually; later as a family and later as a church, that is why the biggest mistake we could do is trying to edify first the church to edify later the family. If there are blessed families in the order of God, there will also be a church in the order of Good blessed and prospered.
The first place where we must exercise our ministry is our house, because our children need our prophesy, they need to be instructed and to be taught in the Word; we must be aware of the spiritual responsibility that we have with ours, because doubtless our children need to be evangelized and guided according of how the Lord demands it to us.
All enterprise of God had has His provision, that is why the children are heritage of the Lord and that heritage is our crown, blessing and something that He has put in our hands to administrate, notwithstanding; we will have to take them back to the heavenly homeland, that is why we see that the enemy works hard to destroy the paternal relationship; in that sense it is common that men are short of words with our family, notwithstanding, it is a responsibility of the parents to comfort our children when they grow up and start having doubts that we must answer.
The Sprinklings of the Tabernacle IV
Continuing with our teaching about the sprinklings of the Blood of Christ over the people of God, we will be explaining, in this occasion, what is the meaning of the fourteen sprinklings in the Most Holy place and their benefits.
Hebrews 11:28 ESV By faith he kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood, so that the Destroyer of the firstborn might not touch them.
Everything that comes from God is received by faith, e.g.: salvation, healing, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, revelation, etc.; then we see the Lord establishes how is it that we, the children of God, will be empowered through the gift of faith, however, this gift is not ours either, it belongs to Him.
