Summary: We live in a World of many troubles, trials and tribulations. Seems like one problem after another. It seems as if the dark cloud will never go away.

Ricardo Rodriguez –

Judges 2:6-10

“6And when Joshua had let the people go, the children of Israel went every man unto his inheritance to possess the land. 7And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel. 8And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old. 9And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathheres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash. 10And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.”

“6Porque ya Josué había despedido al pueblo, y los hijos de Israel se habían ido cada uno á su heredad para poseerla. 7Y el pueblo había servido á Jehová todo el tiempo de Josué, y todo el tiempo de los ancianos que vivieron largos días después de Josué, los cuales habían visto todas las grandes obras de Jehová, que el había hecho por Israel. 8Y murió Josué hijo de Nun, siervo de Jehová, siendo de ciento y diez años. 9Y enterráronlo en el término de su heredad en Timnath-sera, en el monte de Ephraim, el norte del monte de Gaas. 10Y toda aquella generación fué también recogida con sus padres. Y levantóse después de ellos otra generación, que no conocían á Jehová, ni la obra que él había hecho por Israel.”

One of the greatest fears we face today, is that our Children grow up not knowing the Lord. That there arise a generation of young people that do not understand what it is to serve the one and only Living God. The God of Abraham, and Jacob, the God of Isaac and Joseph, the Alpha and Omega, the Lord God almighty.

Joshua said, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord…”. Joshua wanted to leave a legacy in his home for as long as he lived and I believe beyond as well.

 What would you like for your children to remember you by?

 What would you like for you children to live by?

 What would you like your grandchildren to remember you by?

 What principles/morals are important to you?

What Precious Stones of Remembrance would you like them to carry in their hearts?

One of the Precious Stones:


We believe that the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is one, universal and indivisible, and composed of all men regardless of nationality, language, race or custom, who have accepted our Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior and have been baptized into His Body by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:13). The bonds of a common faith and love unite the members of the Church. The flag or banner of the Church is the Name of Jesus Christ before whose emblem the Church marches gallantly as an army on parade (Song of Solomon 6: 10).

Church: What does this bring to your mind?

Body of Christ, Bride of Christ,

Another Precious Stone:


Prov. 1:7

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

“El principio de la sabiduría es el temor de Jehová: Los insensatos desprecian la sabiduría y la enseñanza.”

House of God, Reverence(respect), Door to heaven, Tithings and Offerings,

“Enter into HIS gates with thanksgiving, and into HIS courts with praise…”

Heb 12:28-29

“28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29For our God is a consuming fire.”

“28Así que, tomando el reino inmóvil, vamos á Dios agradándole con temor y reverencia; 29Porque nuestro Dios es fuego consumidor.”

Lev 19:30

“Mis sábados guardaréis, y mi santuario tendréis en reverencia: Yo Jehová.”

“Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.”

I pray that God will give us a place to worship how He deserves to be worshipped, but the scripture says,

Luke 16:10

“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.”

“El que es fiel en lo muy poco, también en lo más es fiel: y el que en lo muy poco es injusto, también en lo más es injusto.”

We need to be responsible for the clearing and keeping of the church. If we want our children to get excited for the house of the Lord, we need to get excited for the House of the Lord.
