A message of hope for those who suffer. On Psalm 69 . By Fabian Massa.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Psalm 69 . About Sosannim ( Lilies ) .

1 Save me , O God,
that the waters have come up to my neck .
2 I sink in the miry depths ,
and I have no where to put your feet .
I’m in the deep waters ,
and drags me along.
3 I am weary of asking for help ;
I have dry throat.
My eyes fail ,
waiting for my God .
4 more than the hairs of my head
are those who hate me without cause ;
many enemies are free
who seek to destroy it .
How can I return what I did not steal ?

The psalmist cries out to God in intense prayer , prey to unspeakable anguish also expresses an air of complaint ( 3 I am weary of asking for help , I have dry throat. My eyes fail, looking for my God . ) The psalmist expresses the sadness of being convicted and is innocent . ( More than the hairs of my head are those who hate me without cause ; … who seek to destroy . How can I give back what I have stolen? )

Reflection. The real purpose of the gospel . By Fabian Massa.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Pastor David Martyn Lloyd- Jones [1 ] it was clear that the purpose of the message of the gospel is the salvation of our souls , to reconcile us to God the access to eternal life in His presence .

However this has been distorted and the last time we have that the message has been changed to a Gospel of Blessing / Prosperity . The Mega Pastors have been achieved with Mega Mega Congregations Churches generally have a Mega Ignorance of the Word of God and have the distorted vision of the gospel of Happiness easy.
Pastors seeking to reach Super have a congregation , because it is the only way to financially support ventures pharaonic as professional TV studios , radio stations , events / shows where they can assist more than 100,000 people , etc . What matters is how much , not whether or not the sheep understand . How sheep together in » industrial quantities «? With a simplistic message :

God wants to bless through the anointing ( the pastor , obviously !) And you do not need much, just RECEIVE THE BLESSING / TEACHING / ETC …! 

Reflection. Is it necessary to believe in God to go to Heaven? By Fabian Massa


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

The question would have made the journalist Eugenio Scalfari (agnostic), founder of the newspaper «La Repubblica». The Pope replied in an open letter: «God forgives those who obey his own conscience»

The letter of four pages is intended for non-believers. Pope contradicts himself, because on one side it says:
«The mercy of God has no limits if you are directed to the sincere and contrite heart» and «the truth, according to Christian faith, is the love of God for us in Jesus Christ and therefore the truth is a relationship.»

The Bible in Postmodernism.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

The truth of Scripture is always current.

Imagen

All the problems of postmodernism was anticipated in the Word, hence the title contention: Scripture is always current.

The term postmodernism is generally designated a large number of art movements, cultural, literary and philosophical since 1970 until today.
One of the characteristics is that they are anti postmodernists – dualistic. They assert that Western philosophy created dualisms (black against white, West against East, male versus female, capitalism vs. communism) and that this way of thinking excluded certain perspectives or viewpoints.
This «open» position makes the Word of God sound «hard» in his ears, as the Scripture raises ethical and moral principles in absolute terms rather than relative:
• Good – Bad
• Men – Women
• Straight – Gay
• Disciples of Christ – Religion
• Holiness – Sin
• Kingdom of Light – Kingdom of Darkness

Testimony about the power of prayer.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Prayer is powerful, through the skies and reaches the Throne of the Lord. To a lady in our church was diagnosed with tumors on the tongue for about a month. The doctor ordered a series of studies and they determined that the tumor was spreading very quickly, so it was urgent surgery. The prospects were bleak for others, the doctor explained to the lady who had to remove her almost the entire tongue, and I actually did not know well what would happen to open and see how everything was.

The Eagle.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

5 Who satisfies your mouth with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

Psalm 103
In this passage, the psalmist David makes mention of the rejuvenation of the eagle, see how this process: When the bird reaches about 40 years, is facing a serious problem, his beak has grown too large and its curvature prevents him preening feathers wings, this prevents fly with precision. Besides excessive peak curvature prevents you cut the claws, which are beginning to bend so much that it is impossible to capture the prey. At this height our eagle is a real problem: Almost can fly and can not catch their prey. Only you have two ways:
1. Expect death on top of the cliff.
2. Peak breaking the rock, in order to give rise to a peak will grow again.
The 2nd alternative is more convenient, though it must hurt a lot. When he grows the new peak, the eagle can finesse your wings, claws trimmed and can live another 40 years.

El Hombre es un ser Gregario

El Hombre es un ser gregario, es decir que vive formando grupos, asociaciones o comunidades.  Estas comunidades tienen intereses y objetivos comunes, los cuales conforman la “Visión” del  Líder y fundador de la comunidad.
Hay infinidad de comunidades, hoy en día las más populares son las llamadas “redes Sociales” como facebook, twiter, bing, google+, etc…En estas organizaciones se forman “islas” de gente que comparten alguna actividad como ser un deporte, una carrera universitaria, son miembros de un club o de una iglesia.
Hay comunidades más organizadas y encolumnadas detrás de un líder, como ser partidos políticos, organizaciones de activistas con una orientación política donde cada miembro asume una actitud comprometida.
Estas “comunidades con miembros comprometidos” se comportan como rebaños, cada uno guiado por un «pastor”.
Image
El “pastor” vive del rebaño, pues ese es su trabajo. Cuando uno habla de pastores y rebaños imagina una Iglesia, aunque no siempre es así.

Apacienta mis ovejas


Image

15 Cuando terminaron de comer, Jesús le dijo a Simón Pedro: «Simón, hijo de Jonás, ¿me amas más que éstos?» Le respondió: «Sí, Señor; tú sabes que te quiero.» Él le dijo: «Apacienta mis corderos.» 16 Volvió a decirle por segunda vez: «Simón, hijo de Jonás, ¿me amas?» Pedro le respondió: «Sí, Señor; tú sabes que te quiero.» Le dijo: «Pastorea mis ovejas.» 17 Y la tercera vez le dijo: «Simón, hijo de Jonás, ¿me quieres?» Pedro se entristeció de que la tercera vez le dijera «¿Me quieres?», y le respondió: «Señor, tú lo sabes todo; tú sabes que te quiero.» Jesús le dijo: «Apacienta mis ovejas.

Juan 21, Reina Valera Contemporánea (RVC).

Para poder apacentar a las «Ovejas» es necesario amar al Señor más que el común de los creyentes. Es necesario, porque tarde o temprano las ovejas cansan al más mentado de los Pastores, solo el amor a Dios puede impulsar a un hombre a hacer el trabajo de trabajar con la congregación.

Apacentar: Pacer, pastar, pastorear[1]

En una sociedad de la época de Jesús, no hacía falta que nadie explique cómo era el oficio del pastor. Pero hoy, en los albores del S XXI, en una gran ciudad, este oficio es desconocido.
