Today’s word for August 5, 2011


All the ends of the earth
will remember and turn to the LORD,
and all the families of the nations
will bow down before him,
for dominion belongs to the LORD
and he rules over the nations.
Psalm 22:27-28

Something that has always characterized the world is disunion. The nations of the world in general have shown a great inability to work together towards common goals. Some nations have sought to establish agreements and pacts that allow them to work with well-defined ground rules in order to remove bureaucratic obstacles so they can advance economically. However, national interests prevail above these agreements and pacts and as soon as a crisis breaks the differences of opinion and disagreements on economic, fiscal and monetary policies come to light and show how divided they are. Many of these disputes end up in tragic conflicts with great bloodshed. Political and economic systems developed by mankind have greatly improved over time but they still show serious flaws that cause social imbalances and fuel dictatorships.

How different will be in the not too distant future when the world government will be under the authority of the perfect King of kings and Lord of lords, the Lamb that could open the seals, our Lord Jesus Christ. All nations will experience an unprecedented boom. The people will flock to pay their respects and to honor and to multitudinous recognize the majesty of the Lord . There will be no differences based on religion because religion will be thrown aside and replaced by the true and pure way to enjoy a relationship with God. There will no more politics to divides us. Unanimously, all of us will submit to the only perfect authority with joy and satisfaction and at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue will acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Meanwhile, let us wait with hope for that glorious future that is soon coming. To God alone be the glory!

Today’s word 3-8-2011


Consider the blameless, observe the upright;
a future awaits those who seek peace.
But all sinners will be destroyed;
there will be no future for the wicked.
Psalms 37:37-38

The only way to understand why there is so much evil in the world is looking at things from far above. Usually, we only consider what happens in this temporary life, but we forget the most extensive and important time that awaits for us when we will be brought to live in God’s presence. It is like when we need to have a vaccine. At the time the syringe needle penetrates the muscle where the solution of attenuated or inactivated microorganisms needs to be placed; we experience pain and sometimes burning. We may also have to endure some side effects such as allergic reactions. After the vaccine has interacted with our immune system we can enjoy the benefits of the vaccination for a very long time. Someone who only considers the time of the puncture without taking into account the subsequent benefits would say that vaccination is a very unpleasant thing. But if we consider the entire process, we can clearly appreciate the convenience and utility of it.

Let us not limit ourselves to analyzing things only from an earthly perspective, since the benefits we will enjoy when we stand in God’s presence will exceed by far any discomfort or pain that we have had to endure in this life. As the apostle John said, speaking of the loud voice that came from the throne, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Let us look at the difficulties within the larger context of the God’s plan and eternity and nothing will ever be a cause for concern any longer. To God alone be the glory!
