“I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!
I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
for those who fear him have no lack!
The young lions suffer want and hunger;
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Come, O children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
What man is there who desires life
and loves many days, that he may see good?
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
Turn away from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
and his ears toward their cry.
The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
When the righteous cry for help,
the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.
Affliction will slay the wicked,
and those who hate the righteous
will be condemned.
The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.”
Psalms 34:1-22 ESV
I find the goodness of the Lord tastes the sweetest when the storms of life are the most bitter.
May you be encouraged today, call out to Him, he hears your cry and will deliver you! You may not be spared many troubles in this life, BUT God promises to deliver you from them all, I can attest to this truth in my own life. “A righteous man has many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.” May you claim this promise too! He is faithful and will fulfill His word to you, always in His perfect timing.

“Porque de tal manera amó Dios al mundo, que ha dado a su Hijo unigénito, para que todo aquel que en él cree, no se pierda, mas tenga vida eterna” (Juan 3:16).
Es posible que hayas escuchado ese versículo bíblico toda su vida, pero ¿alguna vez lo has leído en su contexto completo junto con los versículos que lo siguen inmediatamente? Lee los siguientes cinco versículos (Juan 3: 17-21): “Porque no envió Dios a su Hijo al mundo para que condene al mundo; sino para que el mundo sea salvo por ėl. El que en él cree, no es condenado; pero el que no cree, ya ha sido condenado, porque no ha creído en el nombre del unigénito Hijo de Dios. Y esta es la condenación: que la luz vino al mundo, y los hombres amaron más las tinieblas que la luz, porque sus obras eran malas. Porque todo…

Today, May 14, is the date of the birth of Israel according to the non-Jewish calendar. For Israelis, our Independence Day is celebrated according to the Jewish calendar, thus the celebrations aren’t related to this date. Yet for the Palestinians, this day is marked as their disaster (“Nakba” in Arabic).
Hamas decided today to promise young men and children that if they run towards the border and allow the real terrorists to blend with them so they can kill Israeli soldiers and civilians, they will get to heaven.
Since the morning hours more than 40,000 men, women and children are trying to cross the border or plant bombs along the border fence. The death toll is rising as Israel is preventing infiltration into its territory.
Hamas is pleased with a high death toll. That’s their way to mark a victory. Our late prime minister Golda Meir once said, “We can…

THE BIRTH OF A NATION
Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
Isaiah 66:8 KJV
“I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine, and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant them on their land, and they shall never again be uprooted out of the land that I have given them,” says the Lord your God.”
Amos 9:14-15 ESV
“”Behold, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to all the surrounding peoples. The siege of Jerusalem will also be against Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.”
Zechariah 12:2-3 ESV
“In that day the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of the LORD before them. It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
Zechariah 12:8-9 NKJV
WHAT A DAY THAT WILL BE!
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with…

If Jesus tarries, the day will come when we must go to be with our fathers. So make the best use of every precious moment of time. As a Christian, you are more important than the most skilled of surgeons. Surgeons merely prolong death. God has chosen you to proclaim the message of everlasting life to dying humanity. Share the gospel whenever and wherever you can. Always carry gospel tracts, and when you can’t stop to talk with people, slip one into their hands and pray that God speaks to them through it.

Great beauty and encouragement here.
This encouragement essay first appeared on The End Time in February 2010.
Christians who diligently focus on worship, study, encouragement, and ministry are doing the right thing. But Paul eagerly looked forward to his crowns and to the rewards awaiting him. He often encouraged his brethren with news of the future rewards and glory. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the Crown of Righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7-8). We are made a promise, “Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15:7) It is right and also good to look forward to what the Lord…

Be encouraged today, maybe you are facing some difficult situations right now, BUT GOD, can make what looks humanly impossible to us “POSSIBLE”.
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:4-10 ESV
“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”
I Corinthians 2:9-10 NKJV
“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.”
Romans 5:6-9 NKJV
“Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.”
1 Corinthians 3:5-7 KJV
