The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.”

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at Godโ€™s command,
so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
~Hebrews 11:3

Por la fe entendemos que el universo fue formado por la palabra de Dios,

de modo que lo visible no provino de lo que se ve.

THE PARABLE OF THE NET…

Standard

 

The Parable of the Net

โ€œOnce again, the kingdom of heaven is likeย a net that was let down into the lake
and caught all kinds of fish.
When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore.
Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets,
but threw the bad away. This is how it will be at the end of theย age.

The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous

and throw them into the blazing furnace,
where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth”.

Matthew 13:47-50

Matthew 2:10
The Message (MSG)
Instructed by the king, they set off.
Then the star appeared again,
the same star they had seen in theย Easterย skies
It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child.
They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place!
They had arrived at the right time!
