Suicidul - realitatea de langa noi

The future you hope for

Ieremia 29:11

Traducerea Cornilescu:

" Căci Eu ştiu gândurile,
pe care le am
cu privire la voi,
zice Domnul,
gânduri de pace
şi nu de nenorocire,
ca să vă dau un viitor şi o nădejde. "

Traducere Ortodoxa:

" Pentru că

numai Eu ştiu gândul ce-l am pentru voi,
zice Domnul,
gând bun, nu rău,
ca să vă dau viitorul şi nădejdea. "

Traducere NIV:

" For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you and
not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future."

Traducere NASB:

" 'For I know the plans that I have for you,'
declares the LORD,
'plans for welfare and not for calamity
to give you a future and a hope "


" I know what I'm doing.
I have it all planned out
—plans to take care of you,
not abandon you,
plans to give you the future you hope for. "

Traducere AB:
" For I know the thoughts

and plans that I have for you,

says the Lord,

thoughts and plans for welfare

and peace and not for evil,

to give you hope in your final outcome."

Traducere NLT:

" For I know the plans I have for you,”

says the Lord.

“They are plans for good

and not for disaster,

to give you a future and a hope. "

What Jesus Did! - Away from Me!

"Not every person that says that I am his Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven. The only people that will enter the kingdom of heaven are those people that do the things that my Father in heaven wants.

On the last day many people will say to me, 'You are our Lord! We spoke for you. And for you we forced out demons and did many miracles. ' Then I will tell those people clearly, 'Go away from me, you people that do wrong. I never knew you.'
- Matthew 7:21-23 (ERV)

While you can fool all of the people some of the time, you can never fool the Lord at any time! False teachers may deceive others, but never the Lord.

Substituting proclamations of faith for a life of faith won't cut it. Substituting mighty acts in Jesus' name for living a life of righteousness won't cut it either. Deception, sham, falsehood, manipulation, and hype are works of the Evil One and will be handled as such by the conquering Savior.

Holy Lord, I want to follow you: not just in talk, but also in word and deed. Almighty Lord, I want to reflect your character: not just in Bible study, but also in daily lifestyle.

I want to know you by knowing your character, service, and righteousness through living them in my life. In the name of your holy Son, I pray. Amen.

Related Scriptures:

You are hypocrites ! Isaiah was right when he spoke about you. Isaiah said: 'These people say they honor me, but they don't really make me an important part of their lives. Their worship of me is for nothing. The things they teach are only rules that people have made.'" - Matthew 15:7-9

"It will be bad for you teachers of the law and Pharisees. You are hypocrites. You are like tombs that are painted white.

The outside of those tombs looks fine. But inside, the tombs are full of the bones of dead people. And all kinds of unclean things are inside there. It is the same with you. People look at you and think that you are good. But on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and evil. - Matthew 23:27-28

I may speak in different languages of men or even angels. But if I don't have love, then I am only a noisy bell or a ringing cymbal. I may have the gift of prophecy ;

I may understand all the secret things {of God} and know everything; and I may have faith so great that I can move mountains. But even with all these things, if I don't have love, then I am nothing.

I may give everything I have to feed people. And I may even give my body {as an offering} to be burned. But I gain nothing by doing these things if I don't have love. - 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
