Let the wilderness and the parched land rejoice, the desert plain acclaim, let the lily blossom. Let it blossom excuberantly; let it acclaim will rejoice and shout for joy. The glory of Lebʹa·non is given to it, the splendor of Carʹmel and of Sharʹon. They will see the glory of Yahweh, the splendor of our God.
Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the knees that are shaking. Say to those who are anxious at heart:“Be strong. Do not be afraid. Look! Your own God will come with vengeance, God will come with retribution. He will come and save you.” At that time the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. At that time the lame will leap like the deer, and the tongue of the speechless will shout for joy. For waters will burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert plain. The heat-parched ground will become a reedy pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water. In the lairs where jackals rested, there will be green grass and reeds and papyrus. And a highway will be there, yes, a way called the Way of Holiness. The unclean one will not walk on it. It is reserved for the one walking on the way; no one foolish will stray onto it.
No lion will be there, and no vicious wild beasts will come on it. They will not be found there; only the repurchased ones will walk there. Those redeemed by Yahweh will return and come to Zion with a joyful cry. Unending joy will crown their heads. Exultation and rejoicing will be theirs, and grief and sighing will flee away.
Isaiah 35 💞 🌈

Eu tenho uma mensagem para o seu coração hoje: 👉 Na Bíblia está escrito: "Vou compensá-los pelos anos de colheitas que os gafanhotos destruíram..." (Joel 2:25). ⠀
Deus sabe como compensar os anos que você perdeu na sua vida! É certo que você não pode voltar atrás e consertar cada erro, mas Deus pode fazer com que o resto de sua vida seja tão gratificante, que você nem perceba o que não aconteceu no passado. ⠀
Talvez você esteja triste por ter "desperdiçado" anos em um relacionamento que não deu certo. Mas Deus pode trazer alguém em sua vida tão abençoado(a), tão gente boa e carinhoso(a), que você nem se lembrará dos anos que você perdeu. ⠀
Você pode ter passado anos em um emprego que acabou de repente e agora você se vê em um beco sem saída. Ou talvez você abandonou os caminhos de Deus e acha que nunca mais será feliz e abençoado(a). ⠀
Mas não acredite nessas mentiras! Deus sabe como recuperar o tempo perdido e te dar muito mais do que você pediu ou sonhou. Ele pode acelerar as coisas e colocar oportunidades no seu caminho para que você tenha muitos anos pela frente, de alegria, paz, saúde e sonhos. ⠀
Tudo vai depender das suas escolhas à partir de hoje, então quero te encorajar a voltar os seus olhos somente para Jesus! Se a sua vida girar em torno dEle, todos os seus caminhos serão endireitados. E para que isso aconteça, você precisará viver pela fé e não pelos seus sentimentos. Creia nas promessas de Deus escritas na Bíblia e sua vida nunca mais será a mesma! ⠀ "O que é nascido de Deus vence o mundo; e esta é a vitória que vence o mundo: a nossa fé. Quem é que vence o mundo? Somente aquele que crê que Jesus é o Filho de Deus" (1 João 5:4,5). #Deus#Jesus#Frases#dosebiblica#JesusCristo#JesusChrist#JesusSaves#TeamJesus#God#Dios#EspíritoSanto#HolySpirit#Love#Holy#Christian#Salvation#Biblia#Bible#Fé#Faith#Mercy#Grace#EscolhiEsperar#LoucosPorJesus#JesusFreak#DeusNoControle#DeusNoComando#IgsComProposito#boanoitee
Happy feast to Saint Bernard
Remove the sun that illumines the world and from where will light be obtained? Remove Mary and what will remain but darkness and the shadow of death.

Can you spot a fake?
Luke 21: 8And he said “Look out that you be not misled; for many will come under my name, saying ‘I am he’ and ‘The time is at hand’; do not go after them.” What does a fake Christian teacher look like?
Some of them are easy to spot, others not so. Let’s look at The True Witness as a measuring stick.
Jesus foretold the destruction of the city of Jerusalem (Luke 21: 5-24) and he gave precise instructions on how to escape. He said that there would come a time when an enemy would besiege the city and that would be the sign for his listeners to flee in great haste. He even told them specifically what not to do. (Luke 21:20,21;Mt 24:15-20) These were clear, concise instructions linked to an easily identifiable, visible event.
Would you listen to Jesus? Would you obey? What about Today?
As it turned out Some did listened and obeyed. Many however were deceived by false cry’s by ones claiming to be Prophets Of God and Christ, sadly those who believed them, died horribly. Josephus wrote 1.1 million died.
Jesus didn’t expect people to put faith in his words simply because he said so. He established his credentials as a true prophet by performing many miraculous healings and even resurrecting the dead and by his character.
So how can we test the credibility of what Religious leaders/Prohets say today ?
The test the Bible provides for us to use to determine the validity of any prophet’s words is spelled out in the book of Deut 18:21,22 “However, you may say in your heart: “How will we know that Jehovah has not spoken the word?” 22 When the prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah and the word is not fulfilled or does not come true, then Jehovah did not speak that word. The prophet spoke it presumptuously. You should not fear him.’” 👌🏼Today many would come claiming that Jesus is the Messiah—a truth— & they will say “time is at hand or The due time is near.”and thereby gain people's trust. Jesus warns about this. Test the expressions. As the anon. maxim puts it, "The nearer a lie to truth the more deceitful it is."- #truth#bible#love#jesus#god#faith#christian#fit#jw#fitness#beauty#inspire#holy#good#fake#life#motivation#blessed#fitfam
