the love of my life... my wife
the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."
The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. "My lords," he said, "please turn aside to your servant's house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning."
he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodomâ€”both young and oldâ€”surrounded the house. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished."
When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them. As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, "Flee for your lives! Don't look back, and don't stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!"
In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary.
And coming to her, he said, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you." But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be. Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end."
But Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?"
And the angel said to her in reply, "The holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God. And behold, Elizabeth, your relative, has also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren; for nothing will be impossible for God."
Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." Then the angel departed from her.
--Luke the Physician, 33AD (beginning)
The women who had come from Galilee with him followed behind, and when they had seen the tomb and the way in which his body was laid in it, they returned and prepared spices and perfumed oils. Then they rested on the sabbath according to the commandment.
But at daybreak on the first day of the week they took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb; but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
While they were puzzling over this, behold, two men in dazzling garments appeared to them. They were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground.
They said to them, "Why do you seek the living one among the dead? He is not here, but he has been raised. Remember what he said to you while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners and be crucified, and rise on the third day."
And they remembered his words.
Then they returned from the tomb and announced all these things to the eleven and to all the others. The women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James; the others who accompanied them also told this to the apostles, but their story seemed like nonsense and they did not believe them.
But Peter got up and ran to the tomb, bent down, and saw the burial cloths alone; then he went home amazed at what had happened.
--Luke the Physician, 33AD (end)
God is Love, Jesus proves it!
A su paso, JesÃºs vio a un hombre que era ciego de nacimiento. Y sus discÃpulos le preguntaron: â€”RabÃ, para que este hombre haya nacido ciego, Â¿quiÃ©n pecÃ³, Ã©l o sus padres? â€”Ni Ã©l pecÃ³, ni sus padres â€”respondiÃ³ JesÃºsâ€”, sino que esto sucediÃ³ para que la obra de Dios se hiciera evidente en su vida. Mientras estÃ© yo en el mundo, luz soy del mundo. Dicho esto, escupiÃ³ en el suelo, hizo barro con la saliva y se lo untÃ³ en los ojos al ciego, diciÃ©ndole: â€”Ve y lÃ¡vate en el estanque de SiloÃ© (que significa: Enviado). El ciego fue y se lavÃ³, y al volver ya veÃa. Sus vecinos y los que lo habÃan visto pedir limosna decÃan: Â«Â¿No es Ã©ste el que se sienta a mendigar?Â» Unos aseguraban: Â«SÃ, es Ã©l.Â» Otros decÃan: Â«No es Ã©l, sino que se le parece.Â» Pero Ã©l insistÃa: Â«Soy yo.Â» â€”Â¿CÃ³mo entonces se te han abierto los ojos? â€”le preguntaron. â€”Ese hombre que se llama JesÃºs hizo un poco de barro, me lo untÃ³ en los ojos y me dijo: "Ve y lÃ¡vate en SiloÃ©." AsÃ que fui, me lavÃ©, y entonces pude ver. â€”Â¿Y dÃ³nde estÃ¡ ese hombre? â€”le preguntaron. â€”No lo sÃ© â€”respondiÃ³. ... ... interrogaron de nuevo al ciego: â€”Â¿Y quÃ© opinas tÃº de Ã©l? Fue a ti a quien te abriÃ³ los ojos. â€”Yo digo que es profeta â€”contestÃ³. Pero los judÃos no creÃan que el hombre hubiera sido ciego y que ahora viera, y hasta llamaron a sus padres y les preguntaron: â€”Â¿Es Ã©ste su hijo, el que dicen ustedes que naciÃ³ ciego? Â¿CÃ³mo es que ahora puede ver? â€”Sabemos que Ã©ste es nuestro hijo â€”contestaron los padresâ€”, y sabemos tambiÃ©n que naciÃ³ ciego. Lo que no sabemos es cÃ³mo ahora puede ver, ni quiÃ©n le abriÃ³ los ojos. PregÃºntenselo a Ã©l.
JesÃºs resucita a LÃ¡zaro
HabÃa un hombre enfermo llamado LÃ¡zaro, que era de Betania, el pueblo de MarÃa y Marta, sus hermanas. MarÃa era la misma que ungiÃ³ con perfume al SeÃ±or, y le secÃ³ los pies con sus cabellos. Las dos hermanas mandaron a decirle a JesÃºs: Â«SeÃ±or, tu amigo querido estÃ¡ enfermo.Â» Cuando JesÃºs oyÃ³ esto, dijo: Â«Esta enfermedad no terminarÃ¡ en muerte, sino que es para la gloria de Dios, para que por ella el Hijo de Dios sea glorificado.Â» JesÃºs amaba a Marta, a su hermana y a LÃ¡zaro. A pesar de eso, cuando oyÃ³ que LÃ¡zaro estaba enfermo, se quedÃ³ dos dÃas mÃ¡s donde se encontraba. DespuÃ©s dijo a sus discÃpulos: â€”Volvamos a Judea. â€”RabÃ â€”objetaron ellosâ€”, hace muy poco los judÃos intentaron apedrearte, Â¿y todavÃa quieres volver allÃ¡? â€”Â¿Acaso el dÃa no tiene doce horas? â€”respondiÃ³ JesÃºsâ€”. El que anda de dÃa no tropieza, porque tiene la luz de este mundo. Pero el que anda de noche sÃ tropieza, porque no tiene luz. Dicho esto, aÃ±adiÃ³: â€”Nuestro amigo LÃ¡zaro duerme, pero voy a despertarlo. â€”SeÃ±or â€”respondieron sus discÃpulosâ€”, si duerme, es que va a recuperarse. JesÃºs les hablaba de la muerte de LÃ¡zaro, pero sus discÃpulos pensaron que se referÃa al sueÃ±o natural. Por eso les dijo claramente: â€”LÃ¡zaro ha muerto, y por causa de ustedes me alegro de no haber estado allÃ, para que crean. Pero vamos a verlo.
JesÃºs consuela a las hermanas de LÃ¡zaro
A su llegada, JesÃºs se encontrÃ³ con que LÃ¡zaro llevaba ya cuatro dÃas en el sepulcro. Betania estaba cerca de JerusalÃ©n, como a tres kilÃ³metros de distancia, y muchos judÃos habÃan ido a casa de Marta y de MarÃa, a darles el pÃ©same por la muerte de su hermano. Cuando Marta supo que JesÃºs llegaba, fue a su encuentro; pero MarÃa se quedÃ³ en la casa. â€”SeÃ±or â€”le dijo Marta a JesÃºsâ€”, si hubieras estado aquÃ, mi hermano no habrÃa muerto. Pero yo sÃ© que aun ahora Dios te darÃ¡ todo lo que le pidas. â€”Tu hermano resucitarÃ¡ â€”le dijo JesÃºs. â€”Yo sÃ© que resucitarÃ¡ en la resurrecciÃ³n, en el dÃa final â€”respondiÃ³ Marta. Entonces JesÃºs le dijo: â€”Yo soy la resurrecciÃ³n y la vida. El que cree en mÃ vivirÃ¡, aunque muera; y todo el que vive y cree en mÃ no morirÃ¡ jamÃ¡s. Â¿Crees esto? â€”SÃ, SeÃ±or; yo creo que tÃº eres el Cristo, el Hijo de Dios, el que habÃa de venir al mundo. Dicho esto, Marta regresÃ³ a la casa y, llamando a su hermana MarÃa, le dijo en privado: â€”El Maestro estÃ¡ aquÃ y te llama. Cuando MarÃa oyÃ³ esto, se levantÃ³ rÃ¡pidamente y fue a su encuentro. Cuando MarÃa llegÃ³ adonde estaba JesÃºs y lo vio, se arrojÃ³ a sus pies y le dijo: â€”SeÃ±or, si hubieras estado aquÃ, mi hermano no habrÃa muerto. Al ver llorar a MarÃa y a los judÃos que la habÃan acompaÃ±ado, JesÃºs se turbÃ³ y se conmoviÃ³ profundamente. â€”Â¿DÃ³nde lo han puesto? â€”preguntÃ³. â€”Ven a verlo, SeÃ±or â€”le respondieron. JesÃºs llorÃ³. â€”Â¡Miren cuÃ¡nto lo querÃa! â€”dijeron los judÃos. Pero algunos de ellos comentaban: â€”Ã‰ste, que le abriÃ³ los ojos al ciego, Â¿no podrÃa haber impedido que LÃ¡zaro muriera?
Conmovido una vez mÃ¡s, JesÃºs se acercÃ³ al sepulcro. Era una cueva cuya entrada estaba tapada con una piedra. â€”Quiten la piedra â€”ordenÃ³ JesÃºs. Marta, la hermana del difunto, objetÃ³: â€”SeÃ±or, ya debe oler mal, pues lleva cuatro dÃas allÃ. â€”Â¿No te dije que si crees verÃ¡s la gloria de Dios? â€”le contestÃ³ JesÃºs. Entonces quitaron la piedra. JesÃºs, alzando la vista, dijo: â€”Padre, te doy gracias porque me has escuchado. Ya sabÃa yo que siempre me escuchas, pero lo dije por la gente que estÃ¡ aquÃ presente, para que crean que tÃº me enviaste. Dicho esto, gritÃ³ con todas sus fuerzas: â€”Â¡LÃ¡zaro, sal fuera! El muerto saliÃ³, con vendas en las manos y en los pies, y el rostro cubierto con un sudario. â€”QuÃtenle las vendas y dejen que se vaya â€”les dijo JesÃºs.
Cuando JesÃºs regresÃ³, la multitud se alegrÃ³ de verlo, pues todos estaban esperÃ¡ndolo. En esto llegÃ³ un hombre llamado Jairo, que era un jefe de la sinagoga. ArrojÃ¡ndose a los pies de JesÃºs, le suplicaba que fuera a su casa, porque su Ãºnica hija, de unos doce aÃ±os, se estaba muriendo. JesÃºs se puso en camino y las multitudes lo apretujaban. HabÃa entre la gente una mujer que hacÃa doce aÃ±os padecÃa de hemorragias, sin que nadie pudiera sanarla. Ella se le acercÃ³ por detrÃ¡s y le tocÃ³ el borde del manto, y al instante cesÃ³ su hemorragia. â€”Â¿QuiÃ©n me ha tocado? â€”preguntÃ³ JesÃºs. Como todos negaban haberlo tocado, Pedro le dijo: â€”Maestro, son multitudes las que te aprietan y te oprimen. â€”No, alguien me ha tocado â€”replicÃ³ JesÃºsâ€”; yo sÃ© que de mÃ ha salido poder. La mujer, al ver que no podÃa pasar inadvertida, se acercÃ³ temblando y se arrojÃ³ a sus pies. En presencia de toda la gente, contÃ³ por quÃ© lo habÃa tocado y cÃ³mo habÃa sido sanada al instante. â€”Hija, tu fe te ha sanado â€”le dijo JesÃºsâ€”. Vete en paz. TodavÃa estaba hablando JesÃºs, cuando alguien llegÃ³ de la casa de Jairo, jefe de la sinagoga, para decirle: â€”Tu hija ha muerto. No molestes mÃ¡s al Maestro. Al oÃr esto, JesÃºs le dijo a Jairo: â€”No tengas miedo; cree nada mÃ¡s, y ella serÃ¡ sanada. Cuando llegÃ³ a la casa de Jairo, no dejÃ³ que nadie entrara con Ã©l, excepto Pedro, Juan y Jacobo, y el padre y la madre de la niÃ±a. Todos estaban llorando, muy afligidos por ella. â€”Dejen de llorar â€”les dijo JesÃºsâ€”. No estÃ¡ muerta sino dormida. Entonces ellos empezaron a burlarse de Ã©l porque sabÃan que estaba muerta. Pero Ã©l la tomÃ³ de la mano y le dijo: â€”Â¡NiÃ±a, levÃ¡ntate! RecobrÃ³ la vida y al instante se levantÃ³. JesÃºs mandÃ³ darle de comer. Los padres se quedaron atÃ³nitos, pero Ã©l les advirtiÃ³ que no contaran a nadie lo que habÃa sucedido.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and..."
God is Love, Jesus proves it
"Then the angel showed me the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of its street. On either side of the river grew the tree of life that produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month; the leaves of the trees serve as medicine for the nations. Nothing accursed will be found there anymore. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will look upon his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. Night will be no more, nor will they need light from lamp or sun, for the Lord God shall give them light, and they shall reign forever and ever.
And he said to me, â€œThese words are trustworthy and true, and the Lord, the God of prophetic spirits, sent his angel to show his servants what must happen soon.â€
â€œBehold, I am coming soon.â€ Blessed is the one who keeps the prophetic message of this book.
â€œBehold, I am coming soon. I bring with me the recompense I will give to each according to his deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.â€
Blessed are they who wash their robes so as to have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through its gates.
river of life-giving water
In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth,
the earth was a formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light," and [BANG!] there was light.
God saw how good the light was.
Then God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered into a single basin, so that the dry land may appear." God saw how good it was.
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth vegetation..." And so it happened: the earth brought forth every kind of plant that bears seed and every kind of fruit tree on earth that bears fruit with its seed in it. God saw how good it was.
Then God said, "Let the water teem with an abundance of living creatures, and on the earth let birds fly beneath the dome of the sky." God saw how good it was, and God blessed them, saying, "Be fertile, multiply, and fill the water of the seas; and let the birds multiply on the earth."
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth all kinds of living creatures: cattle, creeping things, and wild animals of all kinds." And so it happened. God saw how good it was.
Then God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and all the creatures that crawl on the ground."
God created man in his image;
in the divine image he created him;
male and female he created them.
God blessed them, saying: "Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and all the living things that move on the earth."
God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good.
I will sing to the LORD, for he is gloriously triumphant;
horse and chariot he has cast into the sea.
My strength and my courage is the LORD,
and he has been my savior.
He is my God, I praise him;
the God of my father, I extol him.
Your right hand, O LORD, magnificent in power,
your right hand, O LORD, has shattered the enemy.
The enemy boasted, "I will pursue and overtake them;
I will divide the spoils and have my fill of them;
I will draw my sword; my hand shall despoil them!"
When your wind blew, the sea covered them;
like lead they sank in the mighty waters.
Who is like to you among the gods, O LORD?
Who is like to you, magnificent in holiness?
In your mercy you led the people you redeemed;
in your strength you guided them to your holy dwelling.
The nations heard and quaked;
terror and dread fell upon them.
By the might of your arm they were frozen like stone,
while your people, O LORD, passed over,
while the people you had made your own passed over.
And you brought them in and planted them on the mountain of
the place where you made your seat, O LORD,
the sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands established.
The LORD shall reign forever and ever.
Sing to the LORD, for he is gloriously triumphant;
horse and chariot he has cast into the sea.
"I, the LORD, am your God,
You shall not have other gods besides me.
"You shall not take the name of the LORD, your God, in vain.
"Remember to keep holy the sabbath day.
"Honor your father and your mother, that you may have a long life .
"You shall not kill.
"You shall not commit adultery.
"You shall not steal.
"You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
"You shall not covet your neighbor's house.
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife ."
Woe to the city, rebellious and polluted, to the tyrannical city!
She hears no voice, accepts no correction;
In the LORD she has not trusted, to her God she has not drawn near.
Her princes in her midst are roaring lions;
Her judges are wolves of the night that have had no bones to gnaw by morning.
The hand of the LORD came upon me, and he led me out in the spirit of the LORD and set me in the center of the plain, which was now filled with bones. He made me walk among them in every direction so that I saw how many they were on the surface of the plain. How dry they were!
He asked me: Son of man, can these bones come to life? "Lord GOD," I answered, "you alone know that." Then he said to me: Prophesy over these bones, and say to them: Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: See! I will bring spirit into you, that you may come to life. I will put sinews upon you, make flesh grow over you, cover you with skin, and put spirit in you so that you may come to life and know that I am the LORD.
I prophesied as I had been told, and even as I was prophesying I heard a noise; it was a rattling as the bones came together, bone joining bone. I saw the sinews and the flesh come upon them, and the skin cover them, but there was no spirit in them.
Then He said to me: Prophesy to the Spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the Spirit: Thus says the Lord GOD: From the four winds come, O spirit, and breathe into these slain that they may come to life.
I prophesied as he told me, and the spirit came into them; they came alive and stood upright, a vast army.
Thus says the Lord GOD: O my people, I will open your graves and have you rise from them, and bring you back to the land of Israel.
Then you shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and have you rise from them, O my people!
I will put my spirit in you that you may live, and I will settle you upon your land; thus you shall know that I am the LORD. I have promised, and I will do it, says the LORD.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
Upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom
a light has shone.
For the yoke that burdened them,
the pole on their shoulder,
And the rod of their taskmaster
you have smashed, as on the day of Midian.
For a child is born to us, a son is given us;
upon his shoulder dominion rests.
They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero,
Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.
His dominion is vast
and forever peaceful,
From David's throne, and over his kingdom,
which he confirms and sustains
By judgment and justice,
both now and forever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!
