He was the son, or perhaps grandson, of Seraiah (2 Kings 25:18-21), and a lineal descendant of Phinehas, the son of Aaron (Ezra 7:1-5).Aaron Era el hijo, o mas bien dicho, el nieto de Seraiah (2 Reyes 25:18-21), y de la línea familiar de Phineas, el hijo de Aarón. (Esdras 7:1-5) All we know of his personal history is contained in the last four chapters of his book, and in Neh. 8 and 12:26 Lo único que sabemos de la historia personal de el se encuentra en los últimos cuatro capítulos de su libro, y también en Nehemías 8 y el 12:26. Key words in his life? THE PURPOSE IN EZRAS HEART. Las palabras mas importantes de su vida? El propósito en su corazón.
Ezra an Example: A Model for Us. Esdras, un ejemplo: Un modelo para nosotros. EZRA 7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel.
Romans 15:4; Romans 15:4; For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope Everything that was written in the Old Testament was written for our own Admonition... Todas las cosas escritas en el antiguo testamento son para la admonición de cada uno.
FOR EZRA HAD PREPARED HIS HEART POR QUE ESDRAS HABIA PREPARADO SU CORAZON Proverbs 4:23… Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life Jeremiah 29:13… And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Isaiah 34:16…Search from the book of the Lord, and read: Not one of these shall fail; Not one shall lack her mate. For My mouth has commanded it, and His Spirit has gathered them.
It CAN be understood PUEDE ser entendida Ephesians 5:17… Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. John 7:17… If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority.
Ezra found the truth -- So can we. Esdras encontró la verdad– Nosotros podemos también. Matthew 7:7… Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 11:25… At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.
IF WE: SI NOSOTROS: Lay aside human reason – Hacemos a un lado la razón humana - Proverbs 14:12… There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
Are all of us preparing our hearts? Estamos preparando nuestros corazones?

Psalm 119:47 47 And I will delight myself in Your commandments, Which I love.
FOR EZRA HAD PREPARED HIS HEART HIS HEART POR QUE ESDRAS HABIA PREPARADO SU CORAZON TO SEEK THE LAW OF THE LORD BUSCABA LA LEY DEL SENOR He sought THE LAW OF THE LORD; Not "I Think" or They Teach" He sought THE LAW OF THE LORD; Not "I Think" or They Teach" Esdras Buscaba LA LEY DEL SENOR; No Yo pienso o, Ellos enseñan Isaiah 8:20… To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
1 Corinthians 2:11-13 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words which mans wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
Ezra was seeking the Law of the Lord, he was looking for it, he wanted it, and he desired it. Esdras estaba buscando la ley del Señor, la estaba buscando, la quería encontrar y la deseaba. SEEK: Yearn for ("be devoted to study") BUSAR: Añore (ser devotado al estudio) John 6:63… It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. Jeremiah 15:16… Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts

La Palabra será el estándar cuando seamos juzgados. John 12:48. It can save us here and hereafter. Nos puede salvar aquí y de ahora en adelante. Acts 20:32. So, the first step to Heaven is diligent study. Pues, el primer paso al Cielo es el estudio diligente. John 6:45.
FOR EZRA HAD PREPARED HIS HEART HIS HEART POR QUE ESDRAS HABIA PREPARADO SU CORAZON TO SEEK THE LAW OF THE LORD BUSCABA LA LEY DEL SENOR AND DO IT! Y HACER LA! To seek and know is not enough. Buscando y sabiendo no es suficiente.

Matthew 7:21.
If we know the truth, let's live it DAILY. Si sabemos la verdad, hagámosla todos los días. Revelations 22:14. Relation to Christ is an individual matter; others cannot obey the Gospel for you. La relación que tenemos con Cristo es algo individual; nadie puede obedecer el evangelio por usted. Others cannot Prepare your heart for you; or be faithful for you. Nadie puede preparar su corazón para usted, ni hacer fiel por usted. Luke 9:23. Only One who hears and does the Word will be saved. Solo el que escucha y hace la palabra será salvado. James 1:22-25.
FOR EZRA HAD PREPARED HIS HEART TO SEEK THE LAW OF THE LORD And to DO IT! AND TO TEACH IN ISRAEL STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS. Ezra's direction: KNOW >>> DO >>> TEACH. Every good teacher must follow this exact order. Cada maestro sabio debe de seguir esta orden. Cannot teach without knowing truth. No es posible enseñar sin saber la verdad. Rom 10:1-3. Cannot teach without doing truth. No se puede enseñar sin hacer la verdad. Matthew 7:3-5.
But what if we know and do truth, but do not teach? Pero, que pasara si sabemos y hacemos la verdad, pero no la ensenamos? Do we rejoice in the Lord? Tell others about it! Nos regocijamos en el Señor? Díselo a otros! See others in spiritual danger? Warn them with the Word! Reconoces que hay alguno que esta en peligro espiritual? Adviértalos con la palabra! Carries great responsibility – Lleva gran responsabilidad- James 3:1;
Ezra sets before us a wonderful example: Esdras nos ensena un ejemplo maravilloso: Are we ready to learn? Estamos listos para aprender?
