With family: 1 Chronicles 5–6; Hebrews 10 1 Chronicles 5–6 (Listen) Descendants of Reuben 5 The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel (for he was the firstborn, but because he defiled his father's couch, his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph the son of Israel, so that he could not be enrolled as the oldest son; 2 though Judah became strong among his brothers and a chief came from him, yet the birthright belonged to Joseph), 3 the sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. 4 The sons of Joel: Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son, 5 Micah his son, Reaiah his son, Baal his son, 6 Beerah his son, whom Tiglath-pileser1 king of Assyria carried away into exile; he was a chief of the Reubenites. 7 And his kinsmen by their clans, when the genealogy of their generations was recorded: the chief, Jeiel, and Zechariah, 8 and Bela the son of Azaz, son of Shema, son of Joel, who lived in Aroer, as far as Nebo and Baal-meon. 9 He also lived to the east as far as the entrance of the desert this side of the Euphrates, because their livestock had multiplied in the land of Gilead. 10 And in the days of Saul they waged war against the Hagrites, who fell into their hand. And they lived in their tents throughout all the region east of Gilead. Descendants of Gad 11 The sons of Gad lived over against them in the land of Bashan as far as Salecah: 12 Joel the chief, Shapham the second, Janai, and Shaphat in Bashan. 13 And their kinsmen according to their fathers' houses: Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia and Eber, seven. 14 These were the sons of Abihail the son of Huri, son of Jaroah, son of Gilead, son of Michael, son of Jeshishai, son of Jahdo, son of Buz. 15 Ahi the son of Abdiel, son of Guni, was chief in their fathers' houses, 16 and they lived in Gilead, in Bashan and in its towns, and in all the pasturelands of Sharon to their limits. 17 All of these were recorded in genealogies in the days of Jotham king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam king of Israel. 18 The Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh had valiant men who carried shield and sword, and drew the bow, expert in war, 44,760, able to go to war. 19 They waged war against the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab. 20 And when they prevailed2 over them, the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hands, for they cried out to God in the battle, and he granted their urgent plea because they trusted in him. 21 They carried off their livestock: 50,000 of their camels, 250,000 sheep, 2,000 donkeys, and 100,000 men alive. 22 For many fell, because the war was of God. And they lived in their place until the exile. The Half-Tribe of Manasseh 23 The members of the half-tribe of Manasseh lived in the land. They were very numerous from Bashan to Baal-hermon, Senir, and Mount Hermon. 24 These were the heads of their fathers' houses: Epher,3 Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty warriors, famous men, heads of their fathers' houses. 25 But they broke faith with the God of their fathers, and whored after the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had destroyed before them. 26 So the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, the spirit of Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria, and he took them into exile, namely, the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, and brought them to Halah, Habor, Hara, and the river Gozan, to this day. 4 Descendants of Levi 6 The sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. 2 The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. 3 The children of Amram: Aaron, Moses, and Miriam. The sons of Aaron: Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 4 Eleazar fathered Phinehas, Phinehas fathered Abishua, 5 Abishua fathered Bukki, Bukki fathered Uzzi, 6 Uzzi fathered Zerahiah, Zerahiah fathered Meraioth, 7 Meraioth fathered Amariah, Amariah fathered Ahitub, 8 Ahitub fathered Zadok, Zadok fathered Ahimaaz, 9 Ahimaaz fathered Azariah, Azariah fathered Johanan, 10 and Johanan fathered Azariah (it was he who served as priest in the house that Solomon built in Jerusalem). 11 Azariah fathered Amariah, Amariah fathered Ahitub, 12 Ahitub fathered Zadok, Zadok fathered Shallum, 13 Shallum fathered Hilkiah, Hilkiah fathered Azariah, 14 Azariah fathered Seraiah, Seraiah fathered Jehozadak; 15 and Jehozadak went into exile when the LORD sent Judah and Jerusalem into exile by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar. 16 5 The sons of Levi: Gershom, Kohath, and Merari. 17 And these are the names of the sons of Gershom: Libni and Shimei. 18 The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel. 19 The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the clans of the Levites according to their fathers. 20 Of Gershom: Libni his son, Jahath his son, Zimmah his son, 21 Joah his son, Iddo his son, Zerah his son, Jeatherai his son. 22 The sons of Kohath: Amminadab his son, Korah his son, Assir his son, 23 Elkanah his son, Ebiasaph his son, Assir his son, 24 Tahath his son, Uriel his son, Uzziah his son, and Shaul his son. 25 The sons of Elkanah: Amasai and Ahimoth, 26 Elkanah his son, Zophai his son, Nahath his son, 27 Eliab his son, Jeroham his son, Elkanah his son. 28 The sons of Samuel: Joel6 his firstborn, the second Abijah.7 29 The sons of Merari: Mahli, Libni his son, Shimei his son, Uzzah his son, 30 Shimea his son, Haggiah his son, and Asaiah his son. 31 These are the men whom David put in charge of the service of song in the house of the LORD after the ark rested there. 32 They ministered with song before the tabernacle of the tent of meeting until Solomon built the house of the LORD in Jerusalem, and they performed their service according to their order. 33 These are the men who served and their sons. Of the sons of the Kohathites: Heman the singer the son of Joel, son of Samuel, 34 son of Elkanah, son of Jeroham, son of Eliel, son of Toah, 35 son of Zuph, son of Elkanah, son of Mahath, son of Amasai, 36 son of Elkanah, son of Joel, son of Azariah, son of Zephaniah, 37 son of Tahath, son of Assir, son of Ebiasaph, son of Korah, 38 son of Izhar, son of Kohath, son of Levi, son of Israel; 39 and his brother Asaph, who stood on his right hand, namely, Asaph the son of Berechiah, son of Shimea, 40 son of Michael, son of Baaseiah, son of Malchijah, 41 son of Ethni, son of Zerah, son of Adaiah, 42 son of Ethan, son of Zimmah, son of Shimei, 43 son of Jahath, son of Gershom, son of Levi. 44 On the left hand were their brothers, the sons of Merari: Ethan the son of Kishi, son of Abdi, son of Malluch, 45 son of Hashabiah, son of Amaziah, son of Hilkiah, 46 son of Amzi, son of Bani, son of Shemer, 47 son of Mahli, son of Mushi, son of Merari, son of Levi. 48 And their brothers the Levites were appointed for all the service of the tabernacle of the house of God. 49 But Aaron and his sons made offerings on the altar of burnt offering and on the altar of incense for all the work of the Most Holy Place, and to make atonement for Israel, according to all that Moses the servant of God had commanded. 50 These are the sons of Aaron: Eleazar his son, Phinehas his son, Abishua his son, 51 Bukki his son, Uzzi his son, Zerahiah his son, 52 Meraioth his son, Amariah his son, Ahitub his son, 53 Zadok his son, Ahimaaz his son. 54 These are their dwelling places according to their settlements within their borders: to the sons of Aaron of the clans of Kohathites, for theirs was the first lot, 55 to them they gave Hebron in the land of Judah and its surrounding pasturelands, 56 but the fields of the city and its villages they gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh. 57 To the sons of Aaron they gave the cities of refuge: Hebron, Libnah with its pasturelands, Jattir, Eshtemoa with its pasturelands, 58 Hilen with its pasturelands, Debir with its pasturelands, 59 Ashan with its pasturelands, and Beth-shemesh with its pasturelands; 60 and from the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon,8 Geba with its pasturelands, Alemeth with its pasturelands, and Anathoth with its pasturelands. All their cities throughout their clans were thirteen. 61 To the rest of the Kohathites were given by lot out of the clan of the tribe, out of the half-tribe, the half of Manasseh, ten cities. 62 To the Gershomites according to their clans were allotted thirteen cities out of the tribes of Issachar, Asher, Naphtali and Manasseh in Bashan. 63 To the Merarites according to their clans were allotted twelve cities out of the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and Zebulun. 64 So the people of Israel gave the Levites the cities with their pasturelands. 65 They gave by lot out of the tribes of Judah, Simeon, and Benjamin these cities that are mentioned by name. 66 And some of the clans of the sons of Kohath had cities of their territory out of the tribe of Ephraim. 67 They were given the cities of refuge: Shechem with its pasturelands in the hill country of Ephraim, Gezer with its pasturelands, 68 Jokmeam with its pasturelands, Beth-horon with its pasturelands, 69 Aijalon with its pasturelands, Gath-rimmon with its pasturelands, 70 and out of the half-tribe of Manasseh, Aner with its pasturelands, and Bileam with its pasturelands, for the rest of the clans of the Kohathites. 71 To the Gershomites were given out of the clan of the half-tribe of Manasseh: Golan in Bashan with its pasturelands and Ashtaroth with its pasturelands; 72 and out of the tribe of Issachar: Kedesh with its pasturelands, Daberath with its pasturelands, 73 Ramoth with its pasturelands, and Anem with its pasturelands; 74 out of the tribe of Asher: Mashal with its pasturelands, Abdon with its pasturelands, 75 Hukok with its pasturelands, and Rehob with its pasturelands; 76 and out of the tribe of Naphtali: Kedesh in Galilee with its pasturelands, Hammon with its pasturelands, and Kiriathaim with its pasturelands. 77 To the rest of the Merarites were allotted out of the tribe of Zebulun: Rimmono with its pasturelands, Tabor with its pasturelands, 78 and beyond the Jordan at Jericho, on the east side of the Jordan, out of the tribe of Reuben: Bezer in the wilderness with its pasturelands, Jahzah with its pasturelands, 79 Kedemoth with its pasturelands, and Mephaath with its pasturelands; 80 and out of the tribe of Gad: Ramoth in Gilead with its pasturelands, Mahanaim with its pasturelands, 81 Heshbon with its pasturelands, and Jazer with its pasturelands. Footnotes [1] 5:6 Hebrew Tilgath-pilneser; also verse 26 [2] 5:20 Or they were helped to prevail [3] 5:24 Septuagint, Vulgate; Hebrew and Epher [4] 5:26 Ch 5:27 in Hebrew [5] 6:16 Ch 6:1 in Hebrew [6] 6:28 Septuagint, Syriac (compare verse 33 and 1 Samuel 8:2); Hebrew lacks Joel [7] 6:28 Hebrew and Abijah [8] 6:60 Septuagint, Syriac (compare Joshua 21:17); Hebrew lacks Gibeon (ESV) Hebrews 10 (Listen) Christ's Sacrifice Once for All 10 For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near. 2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins? 3 But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. 4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 Consequently, when Christ1 came into the world, he said,   “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired,    but a body have you prepared for me;6   in burnt offerings and sin offerings    you have taken no pleasure.7   Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God,    as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.'” 8 When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law), 9 then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second. 10 And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But when Christ2 had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, 13 waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. 14 For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. 15 And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying, 16   “This is the covenant that I will make with them    after those days, declares the Lord:  I will put my laws on their hearts,    and write them on their minds,” 17 then he adds,   “I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.” 18 Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin. The Full Assurance of Faith 19 Therefore, brothers,3 since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, 20 by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. 26 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. 29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. 32 But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, 33 sometimes being publicly exposed to reproach and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. 34 For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one. 35 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. 37 For,   “Yet a little while,    and the coming one will come and will not delay;38   but my righteous one shall live by faith,    and if he shrinks back,  my soul has no pleasure in him.” 39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.

Of these things we cannot now speak in detail. 6 These preparations having thus been made, the priests go regularly into the first section, performing their ritual duties, 7 but into the second only the high priest goes, and he but once a year, and not without taking blood, which he offers for himself and for the unintentional sins of the people. 8 By this the Holy Spirit indicates that the way into the holy places is not yet opened as long as the first section is still standing 9 (which is symbolic for the present age).4 According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper, 10 but deal only with food and drink and various washings, regulations for the body imposed until the time of reformation. Redemption Through the Blood of Christ 11 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come,5 then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) 12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify6 for the purification of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our7 conscience from dead works to serve the living God. 15 Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.8 16 For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. 17 For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. 18 Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. 19 For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, 20 saying, “This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you.” 21 And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. 22 Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. 23 Thus it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. 25 Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, 26 for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

1 Corintios 2:10.Todos los que estamos aquí tenemos historias que contar, el problema es que muchas de esas historias están muy guardadas dentro de nuestros corazones, pero yo te quiero dar un consejo no como pastor sino como amigo, no ocultes tus historias, tus secretos guardados, confiésalos a aquel que te da la confianza, nuestro Señor, rompe hoy con los secretos del pasado con el cual muchas veces creemos que si los sacamos a la luz entonces te van a ver como un monstruo viviente, rompe hoy con la imagen distorsionada de ti mismo por cosas que te ocurrieron en el pasado, permitidas o no y se convirtieron en secretos del corazón.La mayoría de las personas con dolor en el corazón y enfermedades en el cuerpo son las que experimentaron en el pasado violencia física, verbal, emocional y sexual no solo en si mismas sino que la vieron ocurrir en las personas que mas aman, su mamá, sus hermanos e incluso en sus propios hijos.“Tus secretos guardados” siempre van a oprimir tu vida hasta tal punto que nunca podrás ser lo que quieres ser por andar aparentando alguien que no eres, revisa tus secretos, sácalos a la luz y Dios se encargará de perdonarlos y sanarlos, no cometas el error que cometieron tus ascendientes, porque, cuantas cosas hoy están viviendo tu y tus descendientes por causa de los secretos que guardaron tus padres, tus abuelos, tus bisabuelos, en fin… y llegaron a ti a través del ADN espiritual o del cordón de iniquidad y no es que pagues por lo que ellos hicieron, es porque repetiste sus historias y las guardaste como “secretos” que afectaron tu vida física, emocional, sexual, espiritual y lo peor de todo se esparció o se va a esparcir sino lo frenas hoy como verdolaga en playa en tus hijos, nietos, y hasta la tercera y cuarta generación.La biblia registra un evento que sucedió en una familia entera por causa de uno solo llamado Acán, la historia del pecado de Acán, nos ayuda a entender, que cualquier pecado u obra infructuosa de las tinieblas, maldad e iniquidad que esté oculto en nuestra vida, hogar y familia produce muerte y destrucción ya que muchos que están aquí tienen objetos de maldición, de brujería y de hechicería guardados en sus enseres que son anatema en sus vidas, sus familias y sus descendencias; muchos han guardado secretos de sus ascendientes que están ligados a la oscuridad, a la maldad y a la iniquidad y aún no han sido confesados delante de Dios y vemos las generaciones siguientes contaminadas.Vamos un poco a la historia del pueblo de Israel cuando Josué entra a la tierra prometida y comienzan las batallas con todos los enemigos que se encuentran allí, el primero de ellos la destrucción de Jericó. Jericó fue la puerta de entrada del pueblo de Israel a  la Tierra Prometida.Jericó era una ciudad amurallada, pero maldita; infestada de demonios, de brujería, de satanismo, de ídolos, de maldad, pero Dios la entregó en las manos de su pueblo Israel con una condición: “Que no podían quedarse con nada, ni siquiera tocar nada de aquella ciudad, solamente el oro y la plata y otros utensilios de metal, deberían entrar en el tesoro de Dios, tres cosas importantes: El pecado oculto: Josué 7:1 “Pero los hijos de Israel cometieron una prevaricación en cuanto al anatema; porque Acán hijo de Carmi, hijo de Zabdi, hijo de Zera, de la tribu de Judá, tomó del anatema; y la ira de Jehová se encendió contra los hijos de Israel”. No fueron todos, fue uno solo de la tribu de Judá llamado Acan. Destruidos por la basura y el escombro: Cuando el pueblo de Israel intentó conquistar a un pueblo pequeño llamado HAI, fueron destruidos por algo o alguien pequeño; muchas veces somos destruidos por cosas pequeñas, Hai significa “Basura y Escombro”, son los secretos guardados que están dentro tu vida, tu familia y tus descendientes, pequeños secretos que contaminan y arrasan con tu vida y con tus descendientes, está escrito en el libro de Josué 7:10-13. La iglesia tiene que aprenderse esto de calilla: “Sólo se puede hacer frente al enemigo cuando todo lo oculto sale a la luz… cuando no hay anatema enterrado, ese anatema es el pecado oculto, que guardamos y enterramos en el fondo de nuestro corazón, como hizo Acán”. Confesión de los secretos ocultos en tu vida y tu familia: Y así como está escrito en el libro de Josué 7:16-18, hoy vamos a hacer lo mismo aquí y ahora, confesar lo oculto que está en nuestro corazón, sacarlo a la luz y colocarlo delante de Dios, en el valle de Acor, Josué 7:24-26 “Entonces Josué, y todo Israel con él, tomaron a Acán hijo de Zera, el dinero, el manto, el lingote de oro, sus hijos, sus hijas, sus bueyes, sus asnos, sus ovejas, su tienda y todo cuanto tenía, y lo llevaron todo al valle de Acor. Y le dijo Josué: ¿Por qué nos has turbado? Túrbete Jehová en este día. Y todos los israelitas los apedrearon, y los quemaron después de apedrearlos. Y levantaron sobre él un gran montón de piedras, que permanece hasta hoy. Y Jehová se volvió del ardor de su ira. Y por esto aquel lugar se llama el Valle de Acor, hasta hoy”. El valle de Acor estaba destinado para Acán y su familia para muerte, pero para nosotros el pueblo de Dios, el valle de Acor se convierte en una puerta de esperanza: Hoy estamos en el valle de Acor, el lugar donde el pueblo de Dios se reconcilia con Dios, donde se elimina la maldad y la iniquidad, donde pasamos de las tinieblas a Su luz admirable, donde Dios vuelve a ser nuestro Dios y nosotros nos convertimos en Su pueblo.. Dios envió a su Hijo Jesucristo a la tierra, Jesucristo, y todo aquel que lo acepte como Salvador y Señor, lo hace la puerta de entrada al valle de Acor para que venga sanidad, libertad y salvación. Jesús tomó todos los pecados e iniquidades, todos los secretos guardados en tu corazón, guardados en el corazón de tu familia, Su sangre preciosa fue derramada para que tu y yo pudiéramos reconciliarnos con Dios, Jesús hizo esto por ti para que recibieras otra naturaleza y pudieras vivir en libertad y sanidad  y recibir la vida eterna. Su cuerpo sanó toda enfermedad de tu cuerpo, su espalda llagada llevó toda la enfermedad.Por tal razón cuando tu atraviesas la puerta llamada Jesucristo, El dijo en Juan 10:9 “Yo soy la puerta; el que por mí entrare, será salvo; y entrará, y saldrá, y hallará pastos”, entonces en el valle de Acor lo viejo muere y nace todo nuevo, la maldad, la iniquidad, el pecado es quitado, el pasado se destruye y viene un tiempo de esperanza y bendición y comienzan a cumplirse las promesas que Dios nos ha dado: Oseas 2:14-21.Josué 8:18. “Entonces Jehová dijo a Josué: Extiende la lanza que tienes en tu mano hacia Hai, porque yo la entregaré en tu mano. Y Josué extendió hacia la ciudad la lanza que en su mano tenía”, extiende la lanza que tienes en tu mano hacia HAI y todo escombro y basura que hay en tu corazón, todo lo oculto sale a la luz y al declararlo entonces todo juicio, toda condena, toda enfermedad, todo dolor, toda maldición y toda iniquidad se deshace, se quiebra, queda sobre piedras y piedras y lo llevamos a la cruz y allí se rompe de tu vida, tu hogar y tu familia en el nombre de Yeshua “El Mesías”.Presenta tu vida, tu familia y tu descendencia ahora en el nombre de Jesús, porque hoy toda situación sin resolver será resuelta hoy el Señor se manifiesta como YHWH Rapha para sanar, YHWH Jireh para proveer, El Shadai para guardarte y esconderte bajo sus alas, Elohim para mostrar su poder en medio de tu vida, tu familia y tu descendencia, Adonai porque va a gobernar tus asuntos, Tsidkenu porque voy a remitir tus culpas, tus acusaciones, tus juicios y tus condenas porque yo soy tu justicia, Nissi porque voy a levantar bandera delante de tus enemigos y de tus batallas y los voy a derribar y a apartar de delante de ti.Es Su gloria en este lugar, es la presencia de Dios manifiesta en este lugar, se manifestará en tu vida, en tu familia y tu descendencia, personas humilladas delante del Señor ha provocado que Dios se manifieste… huesos y articulaciones reciben la orden de enderezarse, se sanan, se calcifican en el nombre de Yeshua el Mesiah, cánceres, tumores, (pulmón, mama, colon y recto, estómago, próstata, hígado, cuello uterino, linfoma, páncreas y riñones hoy se deshacen en el nombre de Jesús, diabetes se deshace todo el azúcar en la sangre y la hormona llamada insulina comienza a segregar en su cuerpo y la glucosa comienza a ingresar a sus células, problemas en el sistema digestivo desde la boca hasta el ano, sanidad total, el bálsamo de Dios se derrama sobre tu vida sanando todo dolor emocional, toda falta de perdón, toda amargura y raíz de amargura en el nombre de Jesús, hoy se rompen las tinieblas en tu vida, en tu casa, brujería y hechicería, yugos y ataduras se rompen en el nombre de Jesús…

Simon reads the Bible

Joshua 7 NLT read aloud by Simon MacFarlane. 1 But Israel violated the instructions about the things set apart for the Lord. A man named Achan had stolen some of these dedicated things, so the Lord was very angry with the Israelites. Achan was the son of Carmi, a descendant of Zimri son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah. 2 Joshua sent some of his men from Jericho to spy out the town of Ai, east of Bethel, near Beth-aven. 3 When they returned, they told Joshua, “There's no need for all of us to go up there; it won't take more than two or three thousand men to attack Ai. Since there are so few of them, don't make all our people struggle to go up there.” 4 So approximately 3,000 warriors were sent, but they were soundly defeated. The men of Ai 5 chased the Israelites from the town gate as far as the quarries,[c] and they killed about thirty-six who were retreating down the slope. The Israelites were paralyzed with fear at this turn of events, and their courage melted away. 6 Joshua and the elders of Israel tore their clothing in dismay, threw dust on their heads, and bowed face down to the ground before the Ark of the Lord until evening. 7 Then Joshua cried out, “Oh, Sovereign Lord, why did you bring us across the Jordan River if you are going to let the Amorites kill us? If only we had been content to stay on the other side! 8 Lord, what can I say now that Israel has fled from its enemies? 9 For when the Canaanites and all the other people living in the land hear about it, they will surround us and wipe our name off the face of the earth. And then what will happen to the honor of your great name?” 10 But the Lord said to Joshua, “Get up! Why are you lying on your face like this? 11 Israel has sinned and broken my covenant! They have stolen some of the things that I commanded must be set apart for me. And they have not only stolen them but have lied about it and hidden the things among their own belongings. 12 That is why the Israelites are running from their enemies in defeat. For now Israel itself has been set apart for destruction. I will not remain with you any longer unless you destroy the things among you that were set apart for destruction. 13 “Get up! Command the people to purify themselves in preparation for tomorrow. For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Hidden among you, O Israel, are things set apart for the Lord. You will never defeat your enemies until you remove these things from among you. 14 “In the morning you must present yourselves by tribes, and the Lord will point out the tribe to which the guilty man belongs. That tribe must come forward with its clans, and the Lord will point out the guilty clan. That clan will then come forward, and the Lord will point out the guilty family. Finally, each member of the guilty family must come forward one by one. 15 The one who has stolen what was set apart for destruction will himself be burned with fire, along with everything he has, for he has broken the covenant of the Lord and has done a horrible thing in Israel.” 16 Early the next morning Joshua brought the tribes of Israel before the Lord, and the tribe of Judah was singled out. 17 Then the clans of Judah came forward, and the clan of Zerah was singled out. Then the families of Zerah came forward, and the family of Zimri was singled out. 18 Every member of Zimri's family was brought forward person by person, and Achan [...]

Pastors Burnout

A staggering 42% of Pastors have considered quitting full – time ministry. That is a result of a recent study conducted and reported by Jon Brown of Fox News.That study quoted one Pastor Ferguson who previously served in ministry but now resigned, who said:“There is no doubt rates of clerical burnout are increasing”The Pastor at pastorate has always presented pressures potentially detrimental to relationships and mental health said Ferguson. But these cultural rifts have deepened in recent years because of politics and political issues and the pandemic. These two driving forces have “pressed Pastors to not stay in their lane, which is focusing on our faith and spiritual life. Pastors and Priests are called to ministry for one essential purpose:PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRISTThey are called to minister, teach, encourage, marry and otherwise perform the services God would have. They are not called and they are “out of their lane” to take stands on political issues, or cultural, or economic, the province of someone else. THEY ARE CALLED TO PREACH THE BIBLICAL GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST!One Reverend Richard White, Pastor of a Presbyterian Church in Montreat, North Carolina said that he and his staff were overwhelmed with Covid 19 requirements. They did their best to utilize the newly required methodologies of livestreams, cameras, uploading to the church website and other new technical approaches to church services as a result of Covid. But as the pandemic wore on, the church Pastor began to experience a “grinding spirit” and there occurred what Reverend White described as “decision fatigue.” No matter what decision you make, White said, there is a group in the church that is not happy and is local that you are wrong. Bitter decisions over politics and the pandemic have seeped into churches, leading to the growing rates of job and career burnout among Pastors. David Ferguson, now Executive Director of the Great Commandment Network and former Pastor said:“Our faith does not exempt us from anxiety, depression, temptation or Covid.”We live said he in a divided, polarized, politized and hateful world which far too often requires Pastors to take positions on every imaginable topic, many of which are beyond their knowledge or expertise. Rather than the spiritual life of families and individuals growing in the nurture and admonition of the Lord through the ministry of the Pastor, churches are now experiencing division, confrontation and a lack of fellowship. 42% OF PASTORS CAN NOT COPE WITH THIS. As a result, they seriously consider resignation and career change. The Barna Group agrees. A careful and accurate study by the Barna Group found that Pastors identified unbearable stress as the main cause of burnout. 56% said growing stress would prevent them from achieving the spiritual ministry to which they had been called. 43% of Pastors stated loneliness was a main cause of burnout and 38% said that political divisions were extremely difficult negative factors. Most of those Pastors surveyed that these issues and more had taken a serious toll on their families and the pressure was becoming unbearable. Another Pastor stated that members of his congregation resigned such membership in the church because the church required congregants to wear masks while another church had members leave because the church did not require the wearing of masks. Another Pastor said that he credited his survival as Pastor to God's presence, the prayerful encouragement of his staff, his own strengthen and renewed prayer life, and the vocal and continued support of his wife and family. That Pastor said he was often pressed beyond his own strength and forced to “press into the Lord” to sustain himself. What a sad state of affairs. It seems as though far too many in today's congregations are far too demanding, selfish, egocentric to the point where spiritual issues and matters are taking a back seat to the political and cultural issues of the day.Monsignor Stephen J. Rossetti, a Roman Catholic Priest of the Diocese of Syracuse New York, also a licensed phycologist indicated that rates of depression and anxiety rose among Catholic Priests during the pandemic. As with Protestant churches, Catholic parishioners also laid demands on their Pastors that prove overly burdensome. Said Rossetti:“People can be very demanding and sometimes they can have expectations that are unrealistic.”Senior Pastor Drake Caudill of a Baptist Church in Carmi, Illinois stated that too often Pastors are expected to perform more like the CEO of a church rather than a spiritual leader. That he said is not biblical. Said Reverend Caudill:“I think the expectation for Pastor (performance) should start from scripture and using what scripture expects from the Pastor.”And in reality, it should not only begin there but end as well no more should be required of any congregation. Covid and the pandemic only increased Pastor problems. The newly required Covid expectations brought about increased work product and time involved to the point where Pastors were getting tired and exhausted. And, their families were getting tired and exhausted as well. Pastors began to expect too much from themselves. Covid, coupled with political and social issues were taking a toll on Pastors they never before had experienced. The bottom line was that Pastors were now expected to be proficient in those issues which in fact was the profession and expertise of someone else. Said one Pastor:“We are not economists. If we focus on what God has called us to do, pastoring, preaching, serving, we are far less likely to face some of the challenges that are making Pastors want to quit today.”As a result of these studies, Tucker Carlson, host of Fox News, stated that “Christianity was dying.” How wrong he is. But is has, as Pastor Ferguson well stated, gotten “out of its lane” and it needs to go back to the old map, the unchangeable, biblical, gospel and the fundamental and basic varieties of Christianity. It is tangential, defeating, a devil's pool, divisive, unspiritual and unbiblical to do anything but preach the gospel and anything related there to. Pastors need a new courage, a return to the spiritual energy of the Holy Spirit and a new – found ability to saying NO. Pastors need to take control, re-educate the congregation as to the mission, ministry of the church. The world needs the gospel now more than ever. Pastors, called by the Holy Spirit, must lead the way, champion the faith, fight that fight of faith and run the gospel race like never before. If Pastors and Priests don't do that, Carlson will prove right that Christianity is dying not because of the marvelous, unchanging, life changing power of the gospel, but because those agents and spokespersons of this gospel have lost their way. The Apostle Paul warned of apostasy. He warned of false teachers, false doctrine (politics and social issues) and implored those who preach and teach to do so with the true gospel, the real gospel, lacking today in so many churches. The burnout of our Pastors will cease and desist only when they return with all their heart, soul and mind to the pure and unadulterated SAVING GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. Them, and only them.

Simon reads the Bible

Numbers 26 NLT read aloud by Simon MacFarlane. 1 After the plague had ended, the Lord said to Moses and to Eleazar son of Aaron the priest, 2 “From the whole community of Israel, record the names of all the warriors by their families. List all the men twenty years old or older who are able to go to war.” 3 So there on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho, Moses and Eleazar the priest issued these instructions to the leaders of Israel: 4 “List all the men of Israel twenty years old and older, just as the Lord commanded Moses.” This is the record of all the descendants of Israel who came out of Egypt. The Tribe of Reuben 5 These were the clans descended from the sons of Reuben, Jacob's oldest son: The Hanochite clan, named after their ancestor Hanoch. The Palluite clan, named after their ancestor Pallu. 6 The Hezronite clan, named after their ancestor Hezron. The Carmite clan, named after their ancestor Carmi. 7 These were the clans of Reuben. Their registered troops numbered 43,730. 8 Pallu was the ancestor of Eliab, 9 and Eliab was the father of Nemuel, Dathan, and Abiram. This Dathan and Abiram are the same community leaders who conspired with Korah against Moses and Aaron, rebelling against the Lord. 10 But the earth opened up its mouth and swallowed them with Korah, and fire devoured 250 of their followers. This served as a warning to the entire nation of Israel. 11 However, the sons of Korah did not die that day. The Tribe of Simeon 12 These were the clans descended from the sons of Simeon: The Jemuelite clan, named after their ancestor Jemuel. The Jaminite clan, named after their ancestor Jamin. The Jakinite clan, named after their ancestor Jakin. 13 The Zoharite clan, named after their ancestor Zohar. The Shaulite clan, named after their ancestor Shaul. 14 These were the clans of Simeon. Their registered troops numbered 22,200. The Tribe of Gad 15 These were the clans descended from the sons of Gad: The Zephonite clan, named after their ancestor Zephon. The Haggite clan, named after their ancestor Haggi. The Shunite clan, named after their ancestor Shuni. 16 The Oznite clan, named after their ancestor Ozni. The Erite clan, named after their ancestor Eri. 17 The Arodite clan, named after their ancestor Arodi. The Arelite clan, named after their ancestor Areli. 18 These were the clans of Gad. Their registered troops numbered 40,50. 19 Judah had two sons, Er and Onan, who had died in the land of Canaan. 20 These were the clans descended from Judah's surviving sons: The Shelanite clan, named after their ancestor Shelah. The Perezite clan, named after their ancestor Perez. The Zerahite clan, named after their ancestor Zerah. 21 These were the subclans descended from the Perezites: The Hezronites, named after their ancestor Hezron. The Hamulites, named after their ancestor Hamul. 22 These were the clans of Judah. Their registered troops numbered 76,500.

1 Chronicles 5–6 1 Chronicles 5–6 (Listen) Descendants of Reuben 5 The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel (for he was the firstborn, but because he defiled his father's couch, his birthright was given to the sons of Joseph the son of Israel, so that he could not be enrolled as the oldest son; 2 though Judah became strong among his brothers and a chief came from him, yet the birthright belonged to Joseph), 3 the sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel: Hanoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi. 4 The sons of Joel: Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son, 5 Micah his son, Reaiah his son, Baal his son, 6 Beerah his son, whom Tiglath-pileser1 king of Assyria carried away into exile; he was a chief of the Reubenites. 7 And his kinsmen by their clans, when the genealogy of their generations was recorded: the chief, Jeiel, and Zechariah, 8 and Bela the son of Azaz, son of Shema, son of Joel, who lived in Aroer, as far as Nebo and Baal-meon. 9 He also lived to the east as far as the entrance of the desert this side of the Euphrates, because their livestock had multiplied in the land of Gilead. 10 And in the days of Saul they waged war against the Hagrites, who fell into their hand. And they lived in their tents throughout all the region east of Gilead. Descendants of Gad 11 The sons of Gad lived over against them in the land of Bashan as far as Salecah: 12 Joel the chief, Shapham the second, Janai, and Shaphat in Bashan. 13 And their kinsmen according to their fathers' houses: Michael, Meshullam, Sheba, Jorai, Jacan, Zia and Eber, seven. 14 These were the sons of Abihail the son of Huri, son of Jaroah, son of Gilead, son of Michael, son of Jeshishai, son of Jahdo, son of Buz. 15 Ahi the son of Abdiel, son of Guni, was chief in their fathers' houses, 16 and they lived in Gilead, in Bashan and in its towns, and in all the pasturelands of Sharon to their limits. 17 All of these were recorded in genealogies in the days of Jotham king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam king of Israel. 18 The Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh had valiant men who carried shield and sword, and drew the bow, expert in war, 44,760, able to go to war. 19 They waged war against the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab. 20 And when they prevailed2 over them, the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hands, for they cried out to God in the battle, and he granted their urgent plea because they trusted in him. 21 They carried off their livestock: 50,000 of their camels, 250,000 sheep, 2,000 donkeys, and 100,000 men alive. 22 For many fell, because the war was of God. And they lived in their place until the exile. The Half-Tribe of Manasseh 23 The members of the half-tribe of Manasseh lived in the land. They were very numerous from Bashan to Baal-hermon, Senir, and Mount Hermon. 24 These were the heads of their fathers' houses: Epher,3 Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah, and Jahdiel, mighty warriors, famous men, heads of their fathers' houses. 25 But they broke faith with the God of their fathers, and whored after the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had destroyed before them. 26 So the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, the spirit of Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria, and he took them into exile, namely, the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, and brought them to Halah, Habor, Hara, and the river Gozan, to this day. 4 Descendants of Levi 6 The sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. 2 The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. 3 The children of Amram: Aaron, Moses, and Miriam.

These are the clans of the Levites according to their fathers. 20 Of Gershom: Libni his son, Jahath his son, Zimmah his son, 21 Joah his son, Iddo his son, Zerah his son, Jeatherai his son. 22 The sons of Kohath: Amminadab his son, Korah his son, Assir his son, 23 Elkanah his son, Ebiasaph his son, Assir his son, 24 Tahath his son, Uriel his son, Uzziah his son, and Shaul his son. 25 The sons of Elkanah: Amasai and Ahimoth, 26 Elkanah his son, Zophai his son, Nahath his son, 27 Eliab his son, Jeroham his son, Elkanah his son. 28 The sons of Samuel: Joel6 his firstborn, the second Abijah.7 29 The sons of Merari: Mahli, Libni his son, Shimei his son, Uzzah his son, 30 Shimea his son, Haggiah his son, and Asaiah his son. 31 These are the men whom David put in charge of the service of song in the house of the LORD after the ark rested there. 32 They ministered with song before the tabernacle of the tent of meeting until Solomon built the house of the LORD in Jerusalem, and they performed their service according to their order. 33 These are the men who served and their sons. Of the sons of the Kohathites: Heman the singer the son of Joel, son of Samuel, 34 son of Elkanah, son of Jeroham, son of Eliel, son of Toah, 35 son of Zuph, son of Elkanah, son of Mahath, son of Amasai, 36 son of Elkanah, son of Joel, son of Azariah, son of Zephaniah, 37 son of Tahath, son of Assir, son of Ebiasaph, son of Korah, 38 son of Izhar, son of Kohath, son of Levi, son of Israel; 39 and his brother Asaph, who stood on his right hand, namely, Asaph the son of Berechiah, son of Shimea, 40 son of Michael, son of Baaseiah, son of Malchijah, 41 son of Ethni, son of Zerah, son of Adaiah, 42 son of Ethan, son of Zimmah, son of Shimei, 43 son of Jahath, son of Gershom, son of Levi. 44 On the left hand were their brothers, the sons of Merari: Ethan the son of Kishi, son of Abdi, son of Malluch, 45 son of Hashabiah, son of Amaziah, son of Hilkiah, 46 son of Amzi, son of Bani, son of Shemer, 47 son of Mahli, son of Mushi, son of Merari, son of Levi. 48 And their brothers the Levites were appointed for all the service of the tabernacle of the house of God. 49 But Aaron and his sons made offerings on the altar of burnt offering and on the altar of incense for all the work of the Most Holy Place, and to make atonement for Israel, according to all that Moses the servant of God had commanded. 50 These are the sons of Aaron: Eleazar his son, Phinehas his son, Abishua his son, 51 Bukki his son, Uzzi his son, Zerahiah his son, 52 Meraioth his son, Amariah his son, Ahitub his son, 53 Zadok his son, Ahimaaz his son. 54 These are their dwelling places according to their settlements within their borders: to the sons of Aaron of the clans of Kohathites, for theirs was the first lot, 55 to them they gave Hebron in the land of Judah and its surrounding pasturelands, 56 but the fields of the city and its villages they gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh. 57 To the sons of Aaron they gave the cities of refuge: Hebron, Libnah with its pasturelands, Jattir, Eshtemoa with its pasturelands, 58 Hilen with its pasturelands, Debir with its pasturelands, 59 Ashan with its pasturelands, and Beth-shemesh with its pasturelands; 60 and from the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon,8 Geba with its pasturelands, Alemeth with its pasturelands, and Anathoth with its pasturelands.

Believe His Prophets

But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against the children of Israel.2 And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Bethaven, on the east of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying, Go up and view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai.3 And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all the people go up; but let about two or three thousand men go up and smite Ai; and make not all the people to labour thither; for they are but few.4 So there went up thither of the people about three thousand men: and they fled before the men of Ai.5 And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water.6 And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the Lord until the eventide, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads.7 And Joshua said, Alas, O Lord God, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan!8 O Lord, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies!9 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?10 And the Lord said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?11 Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.12 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you.13 Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the Lord God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.14 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the Lord taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which the Lord shall take shall come by households; and the household which the Lord shall take shall come man by man.15 And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of the Lord, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel.16 So Joshua rose up early in the morning, and brought Israel by their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken:17 And he brought the family of Judah; and he took the family of the Zarhites: and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man; and Zabdi was taken:18 And he brought his household man by man; and Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken.19 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the Lord God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me.20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.23 And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the Lord.24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the Lord shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the Lord turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.

The Sin of Achan And The Communal Effects Of Sin Joshua 7 Main Point of the Sermon: When we sin, we not only damage ourselves, but also our community and God's name. Introduction For many years in my life I shared the popular opinion that my actions were between me and God. As long as I didn't directly hurt someone else, I thought my sin was perhaps less severe to God and no one else's business. But I had a rude awakening in my early twenties when I realized that my sin not only caused deep wounds for me, it caused great pain and left many scars on those I loved. You see, when you belong to a family, or when you are in covenant with someone, perhaps marriage, every action, both good and bad, affects the relationship. Whether it's what you do with finances or with your time or your body, our actions either serve and bless the other person or they bring pain and curse to the other. The same is true in our relationship with God and his church. When we put our faith in Jesus, we are joined to God in Christ, similar to a marriage. And we're also joined to one another, to the church, Christ's body. We are family, which means our behavior is never private. What you do is not between you and God. What we do, both good and bad, has massive effects on both God's name and our community, which means that your behavior is everybody's business. I want to show you from the book of Joshua the communal effects of our sin and remind you of the Good News of Jesus in light of our sin. Context: Let me remind you of who Joshua is and where this book fits in the Bible. Joshua was Moses's right hand man. And while Moses was forbidden to enter the Promised Land because of his sin, God anointed Joshua to lead them in. So Joshua records Israel entering and occupying the land God promised to them. That promise goes all the way back to Genesis 12, where we meet Abraham, a pagan moon worshiper, whom God chose and took out of Babylon and made a covenant with. In the vows of the covenant, God promised to create a people from him that would be God's special possession and through whom all the families of the earth would be blessed. He also promised to give them land from which they would bless the rest of the world. But from Abraham to Joshua is a long history of unbelief, fickleness, and disobedience from Israel yet steadfast love and faithfulness from God. After God delivered Israel out of Egypt, he gave the Law through Moses, which were the covenant terms of the relationship. In other words, the Law showed an unholy Israel how to be in relationship with a holy God. So after Moses died, Joshua led the people and miraculously crossed the Jordan, and began to destroy the wicked nations who possessed the Promised Land according to the Lord's command. The first city they were called to destroy because of its great sin, was Jericho, a major city. How did they destroy it? Oh… by marching around it seven days in a row and then shouting loudly. You know, like all of us win battles. We just yell at it and it crumbles. The walls miraculously fell down and Israel took the city. God was clearly with his people as he promised. But Joshua had given his fighting men important instructions before they took the city: 18 But you, keep yourselves from the things devoted to destruction…lest you take any of the devoted things and make the camp of Israel a thing for destruction and bring trouble upon it (Jos 6:18). God had instructed Israel to destroy everyone and everything except for Rahab and her family and the precious metals which God preserved for his temple. But one man disobeyed the Lord. Here's where we pick up in the story. Verse 1: But the people of Israel broke faith in regard to the devoted things, for Achan the son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took some of the devoted things. And the anger of the Lord burned against the people of Israel. #1 Achan's sin affected Israel like Adam's sin affected humanity. Notice here, right off the bat, that God counts one man's sin against the entire community. Though Achan is pinpointed as the sinner, we are told that “the people of Israel broke faith” and that “the anger of the Lord burned against the people of Israel.” If you are already offended at God and see him as unjust and angry for holding one man's sin against an entire community, let us consider again who God is and who we are and what's going on here? First, who is God? Well, the Bible says that God is the Creator of all things. He not only makes us and everything that exists, but defines the purpose for all that he made. God is also holy. We just sang those words together. Holy, holy, holy. When we sing those words, we echo the song of heaven which the angels constantly shout to one another, declaring God's utter uniqueness, his purity, and perfection in being, character, and actions. What about people? People are fundamentally dependent on God. The Bible says we live and move and have our being in God (Ac 17:28). This means that we thrive in a relationship with God and die without him. Further, the Bible teaches that all of mankind was separated from God when sin entered the world through Adam, our first father, because of his disobedience. Heaven and earth were once united, but humanity was banished from that place because a holy God cannot dwell with unholy people. Like the son of a wicked king, forever exiled from the kingdom for his father's behavior, we too were born outside of relationship with God and outside of his presence because of one man's sin. As they died, we too will justly die for our sin. But God's holiness drove him to pursue us and rescue us. So, what's really going on here with Israel? Israel is Abraham's offspring. The nation is like Adam 2.0 and the Promised Land is like the garden of Eden 2.0. God set apart this people to become holy by his Word and his presence. Similar to our union with Adam, Israel had union as one people of God. That means if one person obeyed, there were benefits for all, and if one person disobeyed God, there were consequences on all. We see this clearly laid out in Deuteronomy 28, which says, 9 The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you….” So, when we see God's anger burning against the people of Israel for Achan's sin, it is because God's people, called to be holy and to dwell with God in his holy place, are no longer holy and able to be in relationship with God because of the stolen things in the camp. If one man is unholy, it is as if the whole community is unholy. It is as if they have all cheated on him and the covenant is broken. Israel had become as impure and unclean as Jericho and all the nations of the earth because of this one act of disobedience. So, God's wrath was towards them and his presence no longer went with them. That's what we'll see in the next point. #2 Israel is defeated and devoted to destruction because of its unholiness. In verse 2 we're told that Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai to spy out the land and prepare for the next conquest. At the spies request, Joshua sent a small army to Ai because it was a small city. Israel, having just conquered a massive city went with confidence that God was stronger than any of their enemies. But verse 4 says that “they fled before the men of Ai… 36 of their men [were killed]… and the hearts of the people melted and became as water.” Verse 6 tells us that Joshua and the elders of Israel tore their clothes and fell to their faces before God until evening, crying out, why would you send us here to destroy us? What will come of your great name?” There's something beautiful about this scene. Joshua and the elders take responsibility for the people. They go before the Lord for an entire day seeking to understand what went wrong. They are concerned also that the name of Yahweh will be blasphemed. But listen to the response of the Lord in verse 10: “Get up! Why have you fallen on your face? 11 Israel has sinned; they have transgressed my covenant that I commanded them; God's response to Joshua gives the impression that Joshua was in the wrong. It seems that Joshua is quick to question God's faithfulness and slow to recognize their unfaithfulness. How many times do we find ourselves questioning God's faithfulness when we are met with trials and pain that is unexpected? How quick we are to judge God as unfaithful and how slow we are to check our own hearts for unfaithfulness. Nonetheless, God answers Joshua and mercifully explains why this happened and how to remedy the situation. In verse 12, God says, because the people had stolen and lied and broken covenant with God, “…the people of Israel cannot stand before their enemies. They turn their backs before their enemies, because they have become devoted for destruction. I will be with you no more, unless you destroy the devoted things from among you. When God was with Israel, when he blessed them, they could do all things. But Israel's unholiness hindered God's presence from going with them. Without God they would have no strength and would even have God against them as their enemy. They would perish apart from God as God would hand them over for destruction. This is exactly what he meant when he promised curses for disobedience. Friends, we don't want God to be against us. We need him to be with us and for us. But sin destroys the relationship with God and necessitates his justice. God was just to turn his wrath towards Israel. He cannot have a double standard and accept Israel who was committing the same acts as the wicked cities for which they were being destroyed. I need you to see that one man's sin had consequences for 36 families who lost husbands and fathers. Further, one man's sin brought God's wrath, his curses, upon the people. “I will be with you no more.” What a horrifying and deadly thought? Does the thought of God not being with you terrify you? It should. Even more, one man's sin crushed the momentum of the people. The people's hearts melted within them. Rather than being filled with confidence in their God and his promises, they thought they were toast. Who would want to go fight after that? So what was the solution? God told Joshua in verse 12, “I will be with you no more unless you destroy the devoted things from among you.” #3 The death and destruction of the unholy can appease God's wrath. So God told Joshua to consecrate the people the next day, that is purify or make holy. Here again is the theme of holiness. God is telling his people that in order for him, a holy God, to be present with them, they must become holy again by purging the sin from them. Verse 16 tells us that Joshua rose early to bring the people before the Lord tribe by tribe, family by family, and man by man. One by one Joshua cast lots before the Lord to determine who had committed the sin. He essentially threw dice to see who God would pinpoint as the sinner. Can you imagine this scene? The entire community of Israel, a couple million strong, all standing together before the ark of the covenant where God's presence dwelled. It would be a terrifying and unforgettable moment. It is clear from this story that God knows precisely who committed the sin, but in trying the entire community before the Lord, the people would have come to fear the Lord and remember this moment as an example of God's righteous and all-knowing judgment. We're told that, first, Judah was taken, or better translated “were caught or captured” by the Lord. Then, the clan of the Zerahites. Then Zabdi. And finally Achan was caught by the Lord. Achan must have been shaking and sweating uncontrollably at this point. God had just pinpointed him out of a couple million people and identified him through the casting of dice. Don't you know that God sees your sin? We pretend that God doesn't see, that he doesn't know, that there are no consequences for our sin. But friends, God sees every single one. He keeps record of every single sin we commit against him. There is nothing hidden from God. We live our lives daily before the face of God. Achan too thought he could hide just as Adam and Eve did when they had sinned against God. And he hid until he was caught. Notice the similarities of the description of Adam and Eve's sin in Achan's response to Joshua: “Truly I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel, and this is what I did: 21 when I saw among the spoil a beautiful cloak from Shinar, and 200 shekels of silver, and a bar of gold weighing 50 shekels, then I coveted them and took them. And see, they are hidden in the earth inside my tent, with the silver underneath” (Genesis 3:6). Adam (and Eve) and Achan saw something good and beautiful, coveted it, or desired it for themselves, though it was forbidden; they took it; they hid; and ultimately they died. All sin is just a of these stories. When Achan stole the gold and silver and the cloak, he was ultimately stealing what belonged to God. He considered his happiness as more important than God and the welfare of his people. When we sin, we too steal from God. We determine that something is more desirable than God, more important than God. When we take something that God has forbidden we are saying to God, this is my god, this is more precious to me than relationship with you. All sin is idolatry. Sin is about allegiance. When we sin, we are rejecting allegiance to God and pledging allegiance to self and other things. So we steal from the glory and worship that only God deserves every time we sin. #4 Because sin affects the entire community, it's the entire community's role to deal with sin. Notice in verse 22 how the community gets behind dealing with the sin. Joshua sends messengers who discover the hidden things in Achan's tent. Then in verse 24, were told that Joshua with all Israel took Achan, the stolen items, and all of his family and possessions outside the camp, saying, “Why did you bring trouble on us? The Lord brings trouble on you today.” And all Israel stoned him and his entire family with stones. And burned them with fire, covering them with a heap of stones. This is a tragic moment but one that would have reminded every person who threw a stone of God's just and holy anger and the death that would come on them if they followed the same path. So how should we live in light of this story? This story is a warning and charge for us to be holy. It's a warning. This story was recorded for remembrance. Even as the heap of stones in the Valley of Achor (trouble) would remind the people for generations to come that sin brings trouble on all, this story is a warning to everyone who reads it. Friends, our God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The God of the New Testament is the same God as the old. God is still a holy God who will not put up with sin. He does and will punish those who walk in unrepentant sin. And the church, the New Covenant people of God are still charged to be a people holy unto the Lord. We don't have a pass to sin sometimes because of Jesus's work on the cross. No! God still expects full obedience from us. Jesus raised the bar for us, didn't lessen it. He said if your hand or eye cause you to sin, cut it off, gouge it out! This story shows us that partial obedience is still disobedience. Achan fought valiantly in the battle of Jericho, following the commands of the Lord up until this moment of compromise. He probably destroyed many things in obedience to God. Maybe he even piled up many pieces of gold and silver. But it did not matter. Partial obedience is still disobedience to the Lord. I'm afraid that many of us act like we are our own judges. Rather than working from the standard of God's holiness and perfection, we compare ourselves to others: I'm not as bad as that person. I never hurt anyone. Or, I've done all this for you God, so shouldn't I be allowed to have this? We compromise with the Lord and don't surrender all to him because we have convinced ourselves that we are better judges than God and that he has withheld from us so we must take matters into our own hands. We're really not much different than Achan at all. Maybe his family was struggling financially. But he didn't trust God to provide for him. Maybe you are lonely. But instead of trusting God, you surrender to the embrace of someone outside of marriage. We're tired, so instead of going to Jesus for rest, we cling to other forms of entertainment or food or alcohol or other substances for relief and comfort. I could go on and on with examples. And how do all these little compromises affect the church today? Let me answer in the words of Paul from 1 Corinthians 12. 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. (v. 26-27). Through faith in Jesus we become united to Christ as one body. Every individual becomes like a different member of a single body. And Paul says, when one of those members suffers, all suffer together. You understand this well. If your back is jacked up, everything in your body is thrown off. You can't hardly move. You don't hardly want to talk. You just want to lay on your back and sleep. In the same way, if one member is honored, or thrives, the whole body rejoices together, like we did a couple weeks ago when Eric, Jonny, and Nolan were baptized in our presence. What this means is that when you are thriving in this community and bearing fruit for this community, it is credited to the entire community and Christ looks beautiful to the world. But when one member of this body is given to sin, the entire body is affected. Not only is Christ made to look ugly before others because of your behavior, but the whole body loses out on the gifts that you bring. Not only does sin hinder you from serving and loving others in your full capacity because of shame or foolish living, it drags down the body in severe ways. Friends, when you walk in unrepentant sin, it demands others time, emotional capacity, and energy. It's not just you who are being hindered by your sin, but the entire community experiences the pain of coming around a wounded member to try to nurture it back to health. Rather than being on mission, your community is forced to pursue you and fight for your soul and call you to repentance. Rather than moving to new levels of maturity and fruitfulness and knowledge of God, we keep dealing with the same basics. Sin kills momentum. We wonder why people aren't coming to faith. Part of the reason is because we just keep cleaning up the same sin messes in the church. Further, God's church is blasphemed because of unrepentance and hypocrisy of God's people. Jesus is a byword. I heard someone last week mock the church as a place where abuse is safe and unquestioned. It made me sick to my stomach. And a close family member just shared with me this weekend that she left the church at a young age because of the hypocrisy of her pastor. How can we tell someone we are a Christian and then behave dishonestly or arrogantly? How can we call ourselves Christians and go sleep around during the week? How can we call ourselves Christians and live for our own selfish motives while ignoring the poor and the lost. Church, this must not be. Joshua's job, as the chosen leader over Israel, was to exhort the people to obey God's Law and also to punish those who disobeyed. My job as an appointed shepherd of your souls is to exhort you to obey the Lord completely, to be wholly devoted to the Lord and also to rebuke you and correct you when you walk in sin. But it's not just my job because I'm just one part of this body. We're all in this together. We need each other. Friends, this is why we take church discipline so seriously. When sin is left undealt within our community, the whole community is tainted and affected. Slowly, those seeds of unholiness seep into the community until we are all desensitized by sin. But when someone is disciplined before the community for unrepentant sin, we see and fear the consequences of our sin and fight to remain holy unto the Lord. It is our duty to deal with sin in our community. This is why we have DNA groups that deal with the nitty gritty details of our temptation and sin. I think we are often too quick to assume that God would never punish a Christian for sin like he did Achan. But Church, consider Ananias and Sapphira, two of the earliest members of the church, who dropped dead before Peter for lying to the Holy Spirit and to the church about an offering that they had given to the Lord. (Ac 5:1-11). Or consider the church of Corinth, who Paul says had members who had died or were sick because of their irreverent and unholy behavior around the Lord's Supper (1 Cor 11:30). Paul refers to these individuals as belonging to the church and warns them as Christians to repent of their sin. God still disciplines his children. Sometimes that comes in the form of a challenging circumstance so that we learn to wait on the Lord and grow more mature in an area, and sometimes that discipline is a merciful wakeup call that hits in major or minor physical ways or financial ways or otherwise. I could give you many personal examples and examples of close family and friends who have experienced this reality. Please do not hear me saying that your suffering is certainly a result of some sin you committed. Scripture will not allow us to believe that. I'm only saying that God sometimes uses suffering to shake us out of something more deadly, out of eternal separation apart from God because we choose our sin. I need you to understand the difference in the fatherly discipline of the Lord, even though sometimes severe, and the wrath of God. While discipline is always for our benefit and a warning to us to repent of sin, God's wrath is full and final. It is punishment that not only kills, but also condemns to eternal separation from God in hell. While all Christians should expect the discipline of the Lord, we do not have to fear the wrath of God unless you prove yourself not to be a Christian by living in unconfessed and unrepentant sin (c.f. Hebrews 10:26-31). Here's why we don't have to fear God's wrath. It says in verse 26: “The Lord turned from his burning anger.” God's wrath can be appeased. This is where the Gospel of Jesus comes in. God doesn't wish to destroy you or any sinner! His love drove him to give his only Son as our substitute, so that we wouldn't have to perish like Achan. Romans 6: 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly… God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!10 God's wrath has been appeased by the blood of Jesus, who willingly died in our place on the cross. He took the curse we deserve that we might have the blessings that he alone deserved. This is true for everyone who puts faith in Jesus. So, while there are still clear effects of sin on the entire church family when someone sins, I don't believe that God holds the sin of one Christian against the entire church in the same way because of the sacrifice of Jesus. 1) We are under a different covenant with God and one another, not by virtue of our race, or adherence to the Law, or anything else, but only by faith in Jesus. 2) That means that God's wrath has been appeased by the blood of Jesus and his righteousness has been counted to you and I so that when he looks at his us he sees Jesus's righteousness, not our sin. Think of what incredible mercy has been poured out on you, that when you and I deserved the fate of Achan, we enjoy this place of peace with God. In light of that mercy, I want to exhort you today with Peter's words. 14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”[a17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person's work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. It's right to fear God. It's right to fear the consequences of sin. But fear cannot be our chief motivator. We must be motivated by the incredible love of the Father that wanted us and rescued us while we were still sinners. Church, I believe that as we turn from sin and pursue greater levels of holiness as a community, we will see an outpouring of the Spirit like we haven't seen before. We will see more prayer, more baptisms, greater levels of worship, of unity and love. So, we've seen that choosing sin not only damages you and your relationship with God, it damages the church, and God's name in the world. God takes sin seriously. It put Jesus to the cross for us, and it will put all who reject him to death and hell. So I plead with you, if you don't know Jesus or are walking in unconfessed and unrepentant sin, repent today. Come and talk with me or someone else here right now and get right with God and find joy in God's forgiveness and mercy in Jesus. Benediction: You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. (1 Peter 1:29)

Proper 11 First Psalm: Psalm 41; Psalm 52 Psalm 41 (Listen) O Lord, Be Gracious to Me To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 41   Blessed is the one who considers the poor!1    In the day of trouble the LORD delivers him;2   the LORD protects him and keeps him alive;    he is called blessed in the land;    you do not give him up to the will of his enemies.3   The LORD sustains him on his sickbed;    in his illness you restore him to full health.2 4   As for me, I said, “O LORD, be gracious to me;    heal me,3 for I have sinned against you!”5   My enemies say of me in malice,    “When will he die, and his name perish?”6   And when one comes to see me, he utters empty words,    while his heart gathers iniquity;    when he goes out, he tells it abroad.7   All who hate me whisper together about me;    they imagine the worst for me.4 8   They say, “A deadly thing is poured out5 on him;    he will not rise again from where he lies.”9   Even my close friend in whom I trusted,    who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.10   But you, O LORD, be gracious to me,    and raise me up, that I may repay them! 11   By this I know that you delight in me:    my enemy will not shout in triumph over me.12   But you have upheld me because of my integrity,    and set me in your presence forever. 13   Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,    from everlasting to everlasting!      Amen and Amen.

Selah 9   But you have rejected us and disgraced us    and have not gone out with our armies.10   You have made us turn back from the foe,    and those who hate us have gotten spoil.11   You have made us like sheep for slaughter    and have scattered us among the nations.12   You have sold your people for a trifle,    demanding no high price for them.13   You have made us the taunt of our neighbors,    the derision and scorn of those around us.14   You have made us a byword among the nations,    a laughingstock2 among the peoples.15   All day long my disgrace is before me,    and shame has covered my face16   at the sound of the taunter and reviler,    at the sight of the enemy and the avenger. 17   All this has come upon us,    though we have not forgotten you,    and we have not been false to your covenant.18   Our heart has not turned back,    nor have our steps departed from your way;19   yet you have broken us in the place of jackals    and covered us with the shadow of death.20   If we had forgotten the name of our God    or spread out our hands to a foreign god,21   would not God discover this?    For he knows the secrets of the heart.22   Yet for your sake we are killed all the day long;    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered. 23   Awake! Why are you sleeping, O Lord?    Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever!24   Why do you hide your face?    Why do you forget our affliction and oppression?25   For our soul is bowed down to the dust;    our belly clings to the ground.26   Rise up; come to our help!    Redeem us for the sake of your steadfast love! Footnotes [1] 44:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term [2] 44:14 Hebrew a shaking of the head (ESV) Old Testament: Joshua 7:1–13 Joshua 7:1–13 (Listen) Israel Defeated at Ai 7 But the people of Israel broke faith in regard to the devoted things, for Achan the son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took some of the devoted things. And the anger of the LORD burned against the people of Israel. 2 Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is near Beth-aven, east of Bethel, and said to them, “Go up and spy out the land.” And the men went up and spied out Ai. 3 And they returned to Joshua and said to him, “Do not have all the people go up, but let about two or three thousand men go up and attack Ai. Do not make the whole people toil up there, for they are few.” 4 So about three thousand men went up there from the people. And they fled before the men of Ai, 5 and the men of Ai killed about thirty-six of their men and chased them before the gate as far as Shebarim and struck them at the descent. And the hearts of the people melted and became as water. 6 Then Joshua tore his clothes and fell to the earth on his face before the ark of the LORD until the evening, he and the elders of Israel. And they put dust on their heads. 7 And Joshua said, “Alas, O Lord GOD, why have you brought this people over the Jordan at all, to give us into the hands of the Amorites, to destroy us? Would that we had been content to dwell beyond the Jordan! 8 O Lord, what can I say, when Israel has turned their backs before their enemies! 9 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land will hear of it and will surround us and cut off our name from the earth. And what will you do for your great name?” The Sin of Achan 10 The LORD said to Joshua, “Get up! Why have you fallen on your face? 11 Israel has sinned; they have transgressed my covenant that I commanded them; they have taken some of the devoted things; they have stolen and lied and put them among their own belongings. 12 Therefore the people of Israel cannot stand before their enemies. They turn their backs before their enemies, because they have become devoted for destruction.1 I will be with you no more, unless you destroy the devoted things from among you. 13 Get up! Consecrate the people and say, ‘Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow; for thus says the LORD, God of Israel, “There are devoted things in your midst, O Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the devoted things from among you.” Footnotes [1] 7:12 That is, set apart (devoted) as an offering to the Lord (for destruction) (ESV) New Testament: Romans 13:8–14 Romans 13:8–14 (Listen) Fulfilling the Law Through Love 8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. 11 Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. 12 The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. (ESV) Gospel: Matthew 26:36–46 Matthew 26:36–46 (Listen) Jesus Prays in Gethsemane 36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” 37 And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch1 with me.” 39 And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” 40 And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 42 Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done.” 43 And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 44 So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words again. 45 Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later on.2 See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.” Footnotes [1] 26:38 Or keep awake; also verses 40, 41 [2] 26:45 Or Are you still sleeping and taking your rest?

Psalms and Wisdom: Ecclesiastes 5:8–17 Ecclesiastes 5:8–17 (Listen) The Vanity of Wealth and Honor 8 If you see in a province the oppression of the poor and the violation of justice and righteousness, do not be amazed at the matter, for the high official is watched by a higher, and there are yet higher ones over them. 9 But this is gain for a land in every way: a king committed to cultivated fields.1 10 He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.
