“When you care about your parents, your love, work and faith will honor them in your entire life, as the details of your deeds walk before God and man.” ~ Jon Barnes
You were created to be who you are, but examine the details of how you work to see if you are leaving a trail of mess behind you, at work and in every room of your home. Your masterpiece gets lost in your lack of respect, focus, completion, and clean up with each assignment that you start. Why would you flip your good energy and smart, hard work in the wrong direction, or inaction, buried under all of your trash? Your sloppy pride and attitude needs to stop, which is how the devil flip-flopped. You can not live in the good work of the past that you’ve done well. Keep moving forward with God and properly respond to your family, friends, and enemies in love.
Your Heart needs to match your thoughts, words, and actions so that you don’t flop on your projects, dreams and goals. Many of us get to the door of success with God and immediately close the door, during the training process of life, because of our own evil, lazy, selfish, stupid ways. The devil does not get credit for your Flop Slop. We tend to revert back to our old bad habits, while pointing the finger and laughing at the problems of other people, to make our mistakes look good. Do less with more quality to enjoy your quantity of blessings. God and His wrath will be sufficient judgement at the appointed time.
Stop talking about other people, pray, and focus on finishing your jobs so that you can be an example for others to follow, with God’s speed! Share your results and lessons learned from your mistakes. Then you may go onto the next assignment to move forward in your lessons and journey with God! Examine your history of flip flops from your own heart and ask God to guide you straight into the Truth of Love, and true mentorship. Traveling backwards is not an option, so clean up your with detail today.
Are you enjoying the success of following God and biblical balanced details in your lifestyle, with kindness, empathy, compassion, wisdom, completion, and follow up?

The Lamb and the 144,000
14 Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion,and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. 3 And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. 4 These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as first fruits to God and the Lamb. 5 No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.
The Three Angels
6 Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people. 7 He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.”
8 A second angel followed and said, “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,’[a] which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.”
9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand,10 they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.”
Harvesting the Earth and Trampling the Winepress
14 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man[b] with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16 So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
17 Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.18 Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because its grapes are ripe.” 19 The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. 20 They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.[c]
