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. How to grow the Church, according to the Bible.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

In chapter 2 of the book of Acts tells the fullness of the Holy Spirit on the early church at Pentecost . From how much there is to write and meditate on this opportunity just want to refer to a single aspect (which perhaps is one that is not touched almost never) : The type of preaching that gave Pedro.

The sermon of the apostle was decidedly confrontational and exhortation :
36 . » Know, then , certainly all the house of Israel that God has made Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified . «

REFLECTION. The steward, on Luke 12. By Fabian Massa


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

And the Lord :

 

– Then is the faithful and wise steward , whom his master will put in charge of the servants to repartirles food in due time? 43 Blessed is that servant whose master , returning , finds him doing his duty . 44 I tell you what will set him over all his possessions. 45 Butwhat if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delaying his return » , and then begins to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink and get drunk ! 46 The lord of that servant will come on a day when the servant least expect and when least expected . Then punish him severely and will impose the sentence received by unbelievers.

Luke 12.42 – 46 , NIV .

Who is the » faithful butler «?

Just anyone who has understood that has been redeemed by Christ , who is now his servant , and has received the primary mission of a priest of his house ( Revelation 1.6) . This call is for everyone, because the function of the male head is pastoring his family. Among the functions of the steward is to » serve the food (the Word of God ) in due time to his servants.»

REFLEXIÓN. El mayordomo fiel, sobre Lucas 12. By Fabian Massa



 42 Respondió el Señor:

—¿Dónde se halla un mayordomo fiel y prudente a quien su señor deja encargado de los siervos para repartirles la comida a su debido tiempo? 43 Dichoso el siervo cuyo señor, al regresar, lo encuentra cumpliendo con su deber. 44 Les aseguro que lo pondrá a cargo de todos sus bienes. 45 Pero ¡qué tal si ese siervo se pone a pensar: “Mi señor tarda en volver”, y luego comienza a golpear a los criados y a las criadas, y a comer y beber y emborracharse! 46 El señor de ese siervo volverá el día en que el siervo menos lo espere y a la hora menos pensada. Entonces lo castigará severamente y le impondrá la condena que reciben los incrédulos. 

Lucas 12.42 – 46, NVI.
 

¿Quién es el «Mayordomo fiel»? Simplemente todo aquél que ha entendido que ha sido redimido por Cristo, que ahora es su siervo, y que ha recibido la misión primaria de ser sacerdote de su casa (Apocalipsis 1.6). Este llamado es para todos, porque la función del varón como cabeza es pastorear a su familia. Dentro de las funciones del mayordomo está la de «servir la comida (La Palabra de Dios) a su debido tiempo a sus consiervos».

Study. A brief reflection on the Book of Job. By Sergio Bodo


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

Job

Job could say that presents Christ as our Redeemer , » I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall be my lawyer here on earth » ( 19:25 NIV version ) . Job sees him as the » Goel » , which is the kinsman redeemer and not a distant God and strange.

Title

The book takes its name from the main character, Job. It is not clear the meaning of the word » Job» , although some scholars think that means » object of enmity » or «the returning ( to God ) » . Should be considered merely as a common name back then and meaningless.

Date and background events

There are indications that lived Job in patriarchal period and perhaps was contemporary of Abraham. Alusi6n No one in the book to life and misi6n of Israel , the covenant , the tabernacle and the priesthood. We will see the patriarchal conditions in which the family is the social and communal .
Like the patriarchs described in Genesis, Job and Family head priest and intercessor serves .
Worship is limited to its most primordial religious rites in a simple way (see 1:5, 42:8 ) .
All this presupposes a time prior to the organization of Israel as a nation.

The reference to cattle as wealth of Job, also seems to indicate the time before the founding of the great empires in Mesopotamia. If it was written in that period , is the oldest book of the Bible .

STUDY . The Flood. By Fabian Massa.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

A brief study of Adrian Pablos & Fabian Massa. Excerpt from the book » From Eden to the Nations» will be released in early 2014.

a. Introduction

     In this chapter we appreciate the enormity of the catastrophe that meant the Flood and understand the consequences of it , from the standpoint of spiritual and intellectual . As we saw at the end of Chapter XII , once completed the ark and its cargo , while Noah and his family on board, The Lord Himself closed the door and started the flood , the water level rose rapidly and started flooding. The ark started floating and breaking the structure that held , was released beginning their journey in the middle of the storm , pushed by currents and winds .

Reflection. Why do the righteous suffer ? By Fabian Massa


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

There is a question that has remained unanswered always: Why do the righteous suffer ? In the collective unconscious [1 ] is set to the belief that the righteous should be good and bad evil. In all ancient cultures the gods reward the good and punish the bad , considering that the value of good or bad is not always consistent with the biblical concept of good and evil .
For anyone who has read the book of Job , the question » Why all this could have happened if Job was a good man ? » is practically required .
On a religious level as that of the three friends of Job, it was inconceivable that a just pass him such tremendous calamities. According to his way of thinking (which is still in force in society and in the Church even today , 4,000 years later ) Job was hiding a dark past and sinful in the extreme , the only way to justify the «punishment» of God about his life .

Reflection. Hope . By Fabian Massa.


Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

 

Hope.

 

Hope is the last bastion of the soul. A person without hope no longer find meaning in life and therefore is dangerously close to death .

The site says ABC Definition : Hope is defined as one of the most positive and constructive feelings that a human can have . The hope is that feeling that makes an individual builds to a near or distant future situation or welfare improvement . For such feeling becomes present , the person must have an optimistic attitude , becoming then the hope of something better something very difficult to feel in cases of depression , anxiety or anxiety [1 ] .

There are companies that can put hope in their system of government , in its leaders. But there are , even in developed countries, who have been marginalized sectors and which the system does not give rise to any hope for change.

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 …!
