Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Only God knows the number of days, hours, and seconds you shall live on this earth and He alone also knows how long your soul will live in hell forever when your lifestyle has condemned you to this destination.” ~ Jon Barnes

Forever

Forever is a number that we cannot comprehend or count. People mistakenly use this name and number as if they really understand or know what it is all about. God is forever in Love and Love is forever in God. You cannot contain, hold, or comprehend this eternal truth, as it is too big for our nano brains to comprehend within God’s Universally Large mind, body, heart, and Spirit. You would be wise to respect God and His Forever Love than to partake and partner with His forever Hate for the Sin in your life, without Christ and true repentance.

Math

Like mathematics, the numbers in your actions should always add up to a positive increase for the day with Jesus, killing off all the negative things that could go wrong in your life. If we could only count the number of leaves that fall to the ground each year around the world, perhaps we could then give God the credit for creating and sustaining our being on this planet and use the Bible as a mathematical tool for God. I refuse to close my eyes to God’s Truth and not thank God Almighty for His Mercy, Glory, Sovereignty, and Majesty of All things seen and unseen, known and unknown. Let your faith add up to everlasting repentance, thanksgiving, and love towards God with goodwill towards man.

Words

In God, His Words are just buckets that contain The Work to be done, based on His Will, His Timing, and His Reference, which is The Vision and direction all things will flow forever. Only God can count each action, word, thought, work, choice, outcome, reward or judgment from his obedient or disobedient children. Store your treasures in heaven with faith, love, and good deeds and blessings from God. Since God’s Math and Words, all add up in every second of the day to help you find your way, as people die to find themselves in Heaven or Hell.
Today’s Question
Are you using God’s biblical mathematics to store your works of love in heaven?

Deuteronomy 31

Joshua Becomes Israel’s Leader

31 When Moses had finished giving these instructions[a] to all the people of Israel, he said, “I am now 120 years old, and I am no longer able to lead you. The Lord has told me, ‘You will not cross the Jordan River.’ But the Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy the nations living there, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua will lead you across the river, just as the Lord promised.
“The Lord will destroy the nations living in the land, just as he destroyed Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites. The Lord will hand over to you the people who live there, and you must deal with them as I have commanded you. So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
Then Moses called for Joshua, and as all Israel watched, he said to him, “Be strong and courageous! For you will lead these people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors he would give them. You are the one who will divide it among them as their grants of land. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

Public Reading of the Book of Instruction

So Moses wrote this entire body of instruction in a book and gave it to the priests, who carried the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant, and to the elders of Israel.10 Then Moses gave them this command: “At the end of every seventh year, the Year of Release, during the Festival of Shelters, 11 you must read this Book of Instruction to all the people of Israel when they assemble before the Lord your God at the place he chooses. 12 Call them all together—men, women, children, and the foreigners living in your towns—so they may hear this Book of Instruction and learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully obey all the terms of these instructions. 13 Do this so that your children who have not known these instructions will hear them and will learn to fear the Lord your God. Do this as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy.”

Israel’s Disobedience Predicted

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The time has come for you to die. Call Joshua and present yourselves at the Tabernacle,[b] so that I may commission him there.” So Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves at the Tabernacle. 15 And the Lord appeared to them in a pillar of cloud that stood at the entrance to the sacred tent.
16 The Lord said to Moses, “You are about to die and join your ancestors. After you are gone, these people will begin to worship foreign gods, the gods of the land where they are going. They will abandon me and break my covenant that I have made with them. 17 Then my anger will blaze forth against them. I will abandon them, hiding my face from them, and they will be devoured. Terrible trouble will come down on them, and on that day they will say, ‘These disasters have come down on us because God is no longer among us!’ 18 At that time I will hide my face from them on account of all the evil they commit by worshiping other gods.
19 “So write down the words of this song, and teach it to the people of Israel. Help them learn it, so it may serve as a witness for me against them. 20 For I will bring them into the land I swore to give their ancestors—a land flowing with milk and honey. There they will become prosperous, eat all the food they want, and become fat. But they will begin to worship other gods; they will despise me and break my covenant. 21 And when great disasters come down on them, this song will stand as evidence against them, for it will never be forgotten by their descendants. I know the intentions of these people, even now before they have entered the land I swore to give them.”
22 So that very day Moses wrote down the words of the song and taught it to the Israelites.
23 Then the Lord commissioned Joshua son of Nun with these words: “Be strong and courageous, for you must bring the people of Israel into the land I swore to give them. I will be with you.”
24 When Moses had finished writing this entire body of instruction in a book, 25 he gave this command to the Levites who carried the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant:26 “Take this Book of Instruction and place it beside the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord your God, so it may remain there as a witness against the people of Israel.27 For I know how rebellious and stubborn you are. Even now, while I am still alive and am here with you, you have rebelled against the Lord. How much more rebellious will you be after my death!
28 “Now summon all the elders and officials of your tribes, so that I can speak to them directly and call heaven and earth to witness against them. 29 I know that after my death you will become utterly corrupt and will turn from the way I have commanded you to follow. In the days to come, disaster will come down on you, for you will do what is evil in the Lord’s sight, making him very angry with your actions.”

The Song of Moses

30 So Moses recited this entire song publicly to the assembly of Israel:

Selfish Reasons

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Really, good things happen when you complete the good work for God and not just for selfish reasons.” ~ Jon Barnes

The Mentorship

I was too busy trying to tell my mentors how good I was, rather than being quiet, listening, understanding, and applying the good mentorship of God from wise people. Really, good and true information is in our faces each and every second, if only we could always choose the right answers to all of our questions and problems. But, we create our own smokescreen of confusion, false information, and ideas to spread around as if they are better than God’s ideas. We feed our own lust of stupidity and greed as a mentor of personal gain and theft.

The Mentored

Many people cannot be mentored because of this arrogance that we all are born within sin, but we must repent and learn to master how not to be so wicked.  God loves to mentor His Children if only we would obey His messages, stories, and commandments of old. Like mathematics, your numbers in your actions should always add up to a positive increase for the day, killing off all the negative things that could go wrong. Prefer doing and saying good thing with people to fight off the evil mentoring that is all around you. Become a good mentor by example and not by complaining about other wicked people.

The Good Mentor

You cannot love your Mentor when you constantly disobey all of the commandments set before you.  The facts are simple and each word is true when we trust and obey God in everything we do.  The Master knows best and we must all pass our test, which is simply to do our best in Jesus Christ, as His blood covers our mess. Your belief and conviction should match your addiction to doing All the that Good God commands you to do. Critique yourself and stop criticizing others so that you focus on fixing your own problems while listening to your good mentors.  You cannot count the amount of unconditional love God has shined upon you to receive, learn, follow, and obey His lifestyle, laws, and simple truth. So be thankful and honor your parents by becoming good mentors.

Today’s Question

Does your life honor your parent’s and God’s Mentorship?

Deuteronomy 29

29 [a]These are the terms of the covenant the Lord commanded Moses to make with the Israelites while they were in the land of Moab, in addition to the covenant he had made with them at Mount Sinai.[b]

Moses Reviews the Covenant

[c]Moses summoned all the Israelites and said to them, “You have seen with your own eyes everything the Lord did in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to his whole country— all the great tests of strength, the miraculous signs, and the amazing wonders. But to this day the Lord has not given you minds that understand, nor eyes that see, nor ears that hear! For forty years I led you through the wilderness, yet your clothes and sandals did not wear out. You ate no bread and drank no wine or other alcoholic drink, but he provided for you so you would know that he is the Lord your God.
“When we came here, King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan came out to fight against us, but we defeated them. We took their land and gave it to the tribes of Reuben and Gad and to the half-tribe of Manasseh as their grant of land.
“Therefore, obey the terms of this covenant so that you will prosper in everything you do. 10 All of you—tribal leaders, elders, officers, all the men of Israel—are standing today in the presence of the Lord your God. 11 Your little ones and your wives are with you, as well as the foreigners living among you who chop your wood and carry your water. 12 You are standing here today to enter into the covenant of the Lord your God. The Lord is making this covenant, including the curses. 13 By entering into the covenant today, he will establish you as his people and confirm that he is your God, just as he promised you and as he swore to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
14 “But you are not the only ones with whom I am making this covenant with its curses. 15 I am making this covenant both with you who stand here today in the presence of the Lord our God, and also with the future generations who are not standing here today.
16 “You remember how we lived in the land of Egypt and how we traveled through the lands of enemy nations as we left. 17 You have seen their detestable practices and their idols[d] made of wood, stone, silver, and gold. 18 I am making this covenant with you so that no one among you—no man, woman, clan, or tribe—will turn away from the Lord our God to worship these gods of other nations, and so that no root among you bears bitter and poisonous fruit.
19 “Those who hear the warnings of this curse should not congratulate themselves, thinking, ‘I am safe, even though I am following the desires of my own stubborn heart.’ This would lead to utter ruin! 20 The Lord will never pardon such people. Instead his anger and jealousy will burn against them. All the curses written in this book will come down on them, and the Lord will erase their names from under heaven. 21 The Lord will separate them from all the tribes of Israel, to pour out on them all the curses of the covenant recorded in this Book of Instruction.
22 “Then the generations to come, both your own descendants and the foreigners who come from distant lands, will see the devastation of the land and the diseases the Lord inflicts on it. 23 They will exclaim, ‘The whole land is devastated by sulfur and salt. It is a wasteland with nothing planted and nothing growing, not even a blade of grass. It is like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the Lord destroyed in his intense anger.’
24 “And all the surrounding nations will ask, ‘Why has the Lord done this to this land? Why was he so angry?’
25 “And the answer will be, ‘This happened because the people of the land abandoned the covenant that the Lord, the God of their ancestors, made with them when he brought them out of the land of Egypt. 26 Instead, they turned away to serve and worship gods they had not known before, gods that were not from the Lord. 27 That is why the Lord’s anger has burned against this land, bringing down on it every curse recorded in this book. 28 In great anger and fury the Lord uprooted his people from their land and banished them to another land, where they still live today!’
29 “The Lord our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions.
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,

“Take a look at how God plays with His marbles in the Heavens (planets) so that you can get a better perspective of how amazing God is and honor the choices that He has given you with your marbles in your mind!” ~ Jon Barnes

Investigation

Investigate the little things in life with faithfulness, truth, and justice to understand the chemistry of God’s DNA and molecular components. These components are used and designed for us to see God in all things, even though He is invisible to our senses. By design, God established all things to teach and test us with little things before he can bless us with eternity within Himself. As you read the Bible, enjoy your investigation to find out if you are a part of God’s Army.

Chemistry

I love God’s Chemistry but I hate the way people tend to teach things about God, so I had to study for myself to understand the Chemistry of God through His Writings, Words, and personal experiences.  His Works and message of Faith are True, simple and clear when you honestly do the reading and work yourself.  The problem is, many people will not learn about God’s periodic table of elements to see what sticks together! I use to have nightmares about Chemistry because the devil didn’t want me to understand or learn the 10 Commandments of God’s Chemistry.

Marbles

We are all given a set of marbles to play with, learn, and master the laws, commandments, and stories about God and how things work in our world. God’s model of creation and provision expands as it recycles every particle in everything. Nothing is wasted in God or with God. Since God is an all-consuming fire, the Good burns go to heaven, but the Bad burns will feel the pains of hell, whose souls are not connected to God’s Salvation Plan and Chemistry Structure.

Are you the right chemistry in God or did you fail the Chemistry Class?

Deuteronomy 27

The Altar on Mount Ebal

27 Then Moses and the leaders of Israel gave this charge to the people: “Obey all these commands that I am giving you today. When you cross the Jordan River and enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, set up some large stones and coat them with plaster. Write this whole body of instruction on them when you cross the river to enter the land the Lord your God is giving you—a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.When you cross the Jordan, set up these stones at Mount Ebal and coat them with plaster, as I am commanding you today.
“Then build an altar there to the Lord your God, using natural, uncut stones. You must not shape the stones with an iron tool. Build the altar of uncut stones, and use it to offer burnt offerings to the Lord your God. Also sacrifice peace offerings on it, and celebrate by feasting there before the Lord your God. You must clearly write all these instructions on the stones coated with plaster.”
Then Moses and the Levitical priests addressed all Israel as follows: “O Israel, be quiet and listen! Today you have become the people of the Lord your God. 10 So you must obey the Lord your God by keeping all these commands and decrees that I am giving you today.”

Curses from Mount Ebal

11 That same day Moses also gave this charge to the people: 12 “When you cross the Jordan River, the tribes of Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin must stand on Mount Gerizim to proclaim a blessing over the people.13 And the tribes of Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali must stand on Mount Ebal to proclaim a curse.
14 “Then the Levites will shout to all the people of Israel:
15 ‘Cursed is anyone who carves or casts an idol and secretly sets it up. These idols, the work of craftsmen, are detestable to the Lord.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
16 ‘Cursed is anyone who dishonors father or mother.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
17 ‘Cursed is anyone who steals property from a neighbor by moving a boundary marker.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
18 ‘Cursed is anyone who leads a blind person astray on the road.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
19 ‘Cursed is anyone who denies justice to foreigners, orphans, or widows.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
20 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with one of his father’s wives, for he has violated his father.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
21 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with an animal.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
22 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with his sister, whether she is the daughter of his father or his mother.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
23 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with his mother-in-law.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
24 ‘Cursed is anyone who attacks a neighbor in secret.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
25 ‘Cursed is anyone who accepts payment to kill an innocent person.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
26 ‘Cursed is anyone who does not affirm and obey the terms of these instructions.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The person who cleans is interested in learning, maintaining, and sharing the truth of God with a clear heart, mind, body, and spirit, which is why God connects with them.” ~ Jon Barnes

Visionary

You can see a clear line of the direction your life is headed based on the clean snail-like trail you leave in the path you take towards God. Each little step you take in dragging your slow body across the ground speaks volumes about your character, goals, ideas, and belief in God.  The opposite holds true as well. As I study and think about the paths of other successful visionaries, I compare God’s standards to their work and lifestyle to analyze and improve my own position and understanding of God’s Commandments.

Yourself

Seeing yourself outside of yourself gives you an interesting perspective about what you are doing, to critique and make significant incremental adjustments and improvements in your daily work for God, doing all the good you can do.  Inspiring yourself to do good for God is the best tool, along with the solutions manual from the Bible.  Copy the directions and recipes that work well and you will reap what you have sown into the Kingdom of God.

Copy

When you copy the negative parts of God’s Stories and ignore God’s Commandments in the Bible, you will fail in your lifestyle just like the evil people and characters in the Bible. Life is just that simple. You have all you need. The few good people simply do good and the wicked people that are evil are many. Your job in life is to copy Jesus and do the Good Work you where created to perform.  The choice you make is the copy of your lifestyle from what you have read, studied and imitated in your lifelong study and practice in humanity with your own cleaning experiences and skill set.

Deuteronomy 28

Blessings for Obedience

28 “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:
Your towns and your fields
    will be blessed.
Your children and your crops
    will be blessed.
The offspring of your herds and flocks
    will be blessed.
Your fruit baskets and breadboards
    will be blessed.
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
    you will be blessed.
“The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!
“The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
“If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways, the Lordwill establish you as his holy people as he swore he would do. 10 Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you.
11 “The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops.12 The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. 13 If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom. 14 You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today, nor follow after other gods and worship them.

Curses for Disobedience

15 “But if you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and do not obey all the commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come and overwhelm you:
16 Your towns and your fields
    will be cursed.
17 Your fruit baskets and breadboards
    will be cursed.
18 Your children and your crops
    will be cursed.
The offspring of your herds and flocks
    will be cursed.
19 Wherever you go and whatever you do,
    you will be cursed.
20 “The Lord himself will send on you curses, confusion, and frustration in everything you do, until at last you are completely destroyed for doing evil and abandoning me. 21 The Lord will afflict you with diseases until none of you are left in the land you are about to enter and occupy. 22 The Lord will strike you with wasting diseases, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These disasters will pursue you until you die. 23 The skies above will be as unyielding as bronze, and the earth beneath will be as hard as iron. 24 The Lord will change the rain that falls on your land into powder, and dust will pour down from the sky until you are destroyed.
25 “The Lord will cause you to be defeated by your enemies. You will attack your enemies from one direction, but you will scatter from them in seven! You will be an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 Your corpses will be food for all the scavenging birds and wild animals, and no one will be there to chase them away.
27 “The Lord will afflict you with the boils of Egypt and with tumors, scurvy, and the itch, from which you cannot be cured. 28 The Lord will strike you with madness, blindness, and panic. 29 You will grope around in broad daylight like a blind person groping in the darkness, but you will not find your way. You will be oppressed and robbed continually, and no one will come to save you.
30 “You will be engaged to a woman, but another man will sleep with her. You will build a house, but someone else will live in it. You will plant a vineyard, but you will never enjoy its fruit. 31 Your ox will be butchered before your eyes, but you will not eat a single bite of the meat. Your donkey will be taken from you, never to be returned. Your sheep and goats will be given to your enemies, and no one will be there to help you. 32 You will watch as your sons and daughters are taken away as slaves. Your heart will break for them, but you won’t be able to help them. 33 A foreign nation you have never heard about will eat the crops you worked so hard to grow. You will suffer under constant oppression and harsh treatment. 34 You will go mad because of all the tragedy you see around you. 35 The Lord will cover your knees and legs with incurable boils. In fact, you will be covered from head to foot.
36 “The Lord will exile you and your king to a nation unknown to you and your ancestors. There in exile you will worship gods of wood and stone! 37 You will become an object of horror, ridicule, and mockery among all the nations to which the Lord sends you.
38 “You will plant much but harvest little, for locusts will eat your crops. 39 You will plant vineyards and care for them, but you will not drink the wine or eat the grapes, for worms will destroy the vines. 40 You will grow olive trees throughout your land, but you will never use the olive oil, for the fruit will drop before it ripens.41 You will have sons and daughters, but you will lose them, for they will be led away into captivity. 42 Swarms of insects will destroy your trees and crops.
43 “The foreigners living among you will become stronger and stronger, while you become weaker and weaker. 44 They will lend money to you, but you will not lend to them. They will be the head, and you will be the tail!
45 “If you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and to obey the commands and decrees he has given you, all these curses will pursue and overtake you until you are destroyed. 46 These horrors will serve as a sign and warning among you and your descendants forever. 47 If you do not serve the Lord your God with joy and enthusiasm for the abundant benefits you have received, 48 you will serve your enemies whom the Lord will send against you. You will be left hungry, thirsty, naked, and lacking in everything. The Lord will put an iron yoke on your neck, oppressing you harshly until he has destroyed you.
49 “The Lord will bring a distant nation against you from the end of the earth, and it will swoop down on you like a vulture. It is a nation whose language you do not understand, 50 a fierce and heartless nation that shows no respect for the old and no pity for the young. 51 Its armies will devour your livestock and crops, and you will be destroyed. They will leave you no grain, new wine, olive oil, calves, or lambs, and you will starve to death. 52 They will attack your cities until all the fortified walls in your land—the walls you trusted to protect you—are knocked down. They will attack all the towns in the land the Lord your God has given you.
53 “The siege and terrible distress of the enemy’s attack will be so severe that you will eat the flesh of your own sons and daughters, whom the Lord your God has given you. 54 The most tenderhearted man among you will have no compassion for his own brother, his beloved wife, and his surviving children. 55 He will refuse to share with them the flesh he is devouring—the flesh of one of his own children—because he has nothing else to eat during the siege and terrible distress that your enemy will inflict on all your towns. 56 The most tender and delicate woman among you—so delicate she would not so much as touch the ground with her foot—will be selfish toward the husband she loves and toward her own son or daughter.57 She will hide from them the afterbirth and the new baby she has borne, so that she herself can secretly eat them. She will have nothing else to eat during the siege and terrible distress that your enemy will inflict on all your towns.
58 “If you refuse to obey all the words of instruction that are written in this book, and if you do not fear the glorious and awesome name of the Lord your God,59 then the Lord will overwhelm you and your children with indescribable plagues. These plagues will be intense and without relief, making you miserable and unbearably sick. 60 He will afflict you with all the diseases of Egypt that you feared so much, and you will have no relief. 61 The Lord will afflict you with every sickness and plague there is, even those not mentioned in this Book of Instruction, until you are destroyed. 62 Though you become as numerous as the stars in the sky, few of you will be left because you would not listen to the Lord your God.
63 “Just as the Lord has found great pleasure in causing you to prosper and multiply, the Lord will find pleasure in destroying you. You will be torn from the land you are about to enter and occupy. 64 For the Lord will scatter you among all the nations from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship foreign gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, gods made of wood and stone!65 There among those nations you will find no peace or place to rest. And the Lord will cause your heart to tremble, your eyesight to fail, and your soul to despair.66 Your life will constantly hang in the balance. You will live night and day in fear, unsure if you will survive. 67 In the morning you will say, ‘If only it were night!’ And in the evening you will say, ‘If only it were morning!’ For you will be terrified by the awful horrors you see around you. 68 Then the Lord will send you back to Egypt in ships, to a destination I promised you would never see again. There you will offer to sell yourselves to your enemies as slaves, but no one will buy you.”
Love,
Jonathan

Talk To Him

book-897834_1920
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Talk to God better than you talk with yourself and notice how more honest you become with your own ideas, accuracy, accountability, faith, and belief, which will positively affirm and affect your actions with other people in your life.” ~ Jon Barnes

Affirmation

Each person has their own Affirmative Action Plan in place, which is at the core of their values, choices, faith, and love. Each day we affirm our thoughts, plans, goals, and agendas onto another person, without regard to the well being of others. Our laws, schools, business, society, housing, faith, and work practices do not match the true intentions of what God has designed and purpose for us to achieve. 

Buttons

The buttons are products of evil thinking can be seen among the ruins of world poverty, genocide, slavery, human trafficking, sex trade, gaming, lying, cheating as is a direct result of institutionalized lifestyles full of laziness and contempt. We all play the game of how to find the button under the three cards, as the dealer shuffles to ask and onlooker to choose the correct card with the button located underneath. The hands of a thief are quicker than the eyes of an honest person so that you must use all of your senses to catch and correct the wicked buttons.

Distractions

I think we should be more concerned about pushing God’s buttons that any other potential problems and distractions humans can face. We all should affirm our actions to perceive that God knows and will judge us for all of the evil buttons we select and push in lifetime. Perhaps we should push the Fruit of the Spirit from God to promote His Affirmative Action Plans of Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control to rule and regulate our lives around the world.  Don’t let the love of money, fame, power, and lust, pride, and greed distort and distract God’s Affirmation of practicing Love in your life, culture, or community. Why waste your talent and faith in God with distractions? 
Today’s Question
Do you believe that your personal affirmative action plans are pushing God’s Fruit of the Spirit or His Hell Botton?

Deuteronomy 26

Harvest Offerings and Tithes

26 “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you as a special possession and you have conquered it and settled there, put some of the first produce from each crop you harvest into a basket and bring it to the designated place of worship—the place the Lord your God chooses for his name to be honored. Go to the priest in charge at that time and say to him, ‘With this gift I acknowledge to the Lord your God that I have entered the land he swore to our ancestors he would give us.’ The priest will then take the basket from your hand and set it before the altar of the Lord your God.
“You must then say in the presence of the Lord your God, ‘My ancestor Jacob was a wandering Aramean who went to live as a foreigner in Egypt. His family arrived few in number, but in Egypt they became a large and mighty nation. When the Egyptians oppressed and humiliated us by making us their slaves, we cried out to the Lord, the God of our ancestors. He heard our cries and saw our hardship, toil, and oppression. So the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand and powerful arm, with overwhelming terror, and with miraculous signs and wonders. He brought us to this place and gave us this land flowing with milk and honey! 10 And now, O Lord, I have brought you the first portion of the harvest you have given me from the ground.’ Then place the produce before the Lord your God, and bow to the ground in worship before him. 11 Afterward you may go and celebrate because of all the good things the Lord your God has given to you and your household. Remember to include the Levites and the foreigners living among you in the celebration.
12 “Every third year you must offer a special tithe of your crops. In this year of the special tithe you must give your tithes to the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows, so that they will have enough to eat in your towns. 13 Then you must declare in the presence of the Lord your God, ‘I have taken the sacred gift from my house and have given it to the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows, just as you commanded me. I have not violated or forgotten any of your commands. 14 I have not eaten any of it while in mourning; I have not handled it while I was ceremonially unclean; and I have not offered any of it to the dead. I have obeyed the Lord my God and have done everything you commanded me. 15 Now look down from your holy dwelling place in heaven and bless your people Israel and the land you swore to our ancestors to give us—a land flowing with milk and honey.’

A Call to Obey the Lord’s Commands

16 “Today the Lord your God has commanded you to obey all these decrees and regulations. So be careful to obey them wholeheartedly. 17 You have declared today that the Lord is your God. And you have promised to walk in his ways, and to obey his decrees, commands, and regulations, and to do everything he tells you. 18 The Lord has declared today that you are his people, his own special treasure, just as he promised, and that you must obey all his commands. 19 And if you do, he will set you high above all the other nations he has made. Then you will receive praise, honor, and renown. You will be a nation that is holy to the Lord your God, just as he promised.”
Love,
Jonathan

 

Neglect

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Each breath and day that God gives us is full of opportunity to complete the good work or squander our time and talent with disdain, laziness, and regret.” ~ Jon Barnes

Mark

Mark each day with Ten Commandments you have completed for God by not being disobedient or lazy in your well doing for others and yourself.  I want to clearly see my path of understanding and walk the path of personal wisdom you get from God’s mercy and love, which is what you share with others.

Proof

The actions in your life are proof of how you observed, absorbed, or abandoned the gift of love that God gives freely to everyone. There are no excuses. Affirm you actions to prove to yourself that your love is complete in God, serving others and not just yourself.

Rainbows

God will show you the rainbows of life if you walk by His Faith and not by your sight!  God will reveal the truth to you because of your honest integrity and by doing what is right. Look for the sun as it peaks through the sky. Get your camera ready to take pictures each day and don’t ask why. You will see God’s love in each shot you take. So don’t forget your camera of love, because that will be a mistake.
Today’s Question
Is your day marked with many beautiful pictures of love, service, and God’s miracles in your life?

Deuteronomy 25

25 “Suppose two people take a dispute to court, and the judges declare that one is right and the other is wrong. If the person in the wrong is sentenced to be flogged, the judge must command him to lie down and be beaten in his presence with the number of lashes appropriate to the crime. But never give more than forty lashes; more than forty lashes would publicly humiliate your neighbor.
“You must not muzzle an ox to keep it from eating as it treads out the grain.
“If two brothers are living together on the same property and one of them dies without a son, his widow may not be married to anyone from outside the family. Instead, her husband’s brother should marry her and have intercourse with her to fulfill the duties of a brother-in-law. The first son she bears to him will be considered the son of the dead brother, so that his name will not be forgotten in Israel.
“But if the man refuses to marry his brother’s widow, she must go to the town gate and say to the elders assembled there, ‘My husband’s brother refuses to preserve his brother’s name in Israel—he refuses to fulfill the duties of a brother-in-law by marrying me.’ The elders of the town will then summon him and talk with him. If he still refuses and says, ‘I don’t want to marry her,’ the widow must walk over to him in the presence of the elders, pull his sandal from his foot, and spit in his face. Then she must declare, ‘This is what happens to a man who refuses to provide his brother with children.’ 10 Ever afterward in Israel his family will be referred to as ‘the family of the man whose sandal was pulled off’!
11 “If two Israelite men get into a fight and the wife of one tries to rescue her husband by grabbing the testicles of the other man, 12 you must cut off her hand. Show her no pity.
13 “You must use accurate scales when you weigh out merchandise, 14 and you must use full and honest measures. 15 Yes, always use honest weights and measures, so that you may enjoy a long life in the land the Lord your God is giving you. 16 All who cheat with dishonest weights and measures are detestable to the Lord your God.
17 “Never forget what the Amalekites did to you as you came from Egypt. 18 They attacked you when you were exhausted and weary, and they struck down those who were straggling behind. They had no fear of God. 19 Therefore, when the Lordyour God has given you rest from all your enemies in the land he is giving you as a special possession, you must destroy the Amalekites and erase their memory from under heaven. Never forget this!
Love,
Jonathan

Pictures

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“If you only knew how many pictures I have taken over the last year… you all would probably faint, because in my mind, each picture is like a musical note that tells a story of life’s infinite possibilities of moments to share with a limited budget of time to love, share, and care for others; like you love God and yourself.” ~ Jon Barnes

Pictures Of

My wife gave me a new lens to take pictures of an exhibition, nature, and people so that I can learn about new angles, lighting, and perspectives. There are many options to choose from when taking a shot and you must see it first before you can notice possibilities of a picture. By faith, you keep clicking and searching for God’s Truth in your actions and pictures. The exhibition is in your mind but the work begins when you take the camera out of the bag, connect your lens of choice, turn on the camera, focus, and click.  After you have done the work, taking a thousand pictures, you may find 20 really good ones that are rare.

An Exhibition

During your picture taking of an exhibition, each photo session brings new meaning, enlightenment, enchantment, and pleasure from the joys of learning and the wisdom it can bring. God teaches us how to work harder and smarter. Using and sharing these experiences, stories, and pictures provide language and content for people to better understand your walk with God from your visual perspective. You can enjoy how we all use God’s provisions, supplies, and earthly materials to create art, language, pictures, buildings, designs, and plans for sustaining our good lifestyle. Bless God.

Photo Shoot

Each day we take photo shoots of our experiences to learn, grow, and share our perspectives on life, love, liberty, and God’s Standards. I am always careful to live by the Golden Rules, not to inflate my ego above God’s authority to change His design or method book on life.  Since God created every picture we could ever think of, He has given us an opportunity to play, learn, love, and share some of this experience. Enjoy your photo shoot and thank God for the opportunity, by loving Him first and loving your neighbor as you honestly love yourself.
Today’s Question
How will God rate your pictures of an Exhibition at the time and work of your lifestyle?

Deuteronomy 24

24 “Suppose a man marries a woman but she does not please him. Having discovered something wrong with her, he writes a document of divorce, hands it to her, and sends her away from his house. When she leaves his house, she is free to marry another man. But if the second husband also turns against her, writes a document of divorce, hands it to her, and sends her away, or if he dies, the first husband may not marry her again, for she has been defiled. That would be detestable to the Lord. You must not bring guilt upon the land the Lord your God is giving you as a special possession.
“A newly married man must not be drafted into the army or be given any other official responsibilities. He must be free to spend one year at home, bringing happiness to the wife he has married.
“It is wrong to take a set of millstones, or even just the upper millstone, as security for a loan, for the owner uses it to make a living.
“If anyone kidnaps a fellow Israelite and treats him as a slave or sells him, the kidnapper must die. In this way, you will purge the evil from among you.
“In all cases involving serious skin diseases,[a] be careful to follow the instructions of the Levitical priests; obey all the commands I have given them. Remember what the Lord your God did to Miriam as you were coming from Egypt.
10 “If you lend anything to your neighbor, do not enter his house to pick up the item he is giving as security. 11 You must wait outside while he goes in and brings it out to you. 12 If your neighbor is poor and gives you his cloak as security for a loan, do not keep the cloak overnight. 13 Return the cloak to its owner by sunset so he can stay warm through the night and bless you, and the Lord your God will count you as righteous.
14 “Never take advantage of poor and destitute laborers, whether they are fellow Israelites or foreigners living in your towns. 15 You must pay them their wages each day before sunset because they are poor and are counting on it. If you don’t, they might cry out to the Lord against you, and it would be counted against you as sin.
16 “Parents must not be put to death for the sins of their children, nor children for the sins of their parents. Those deserving to die must be put to death for their own crimes.
17 “True justice must be given to foreigners living among you and to orphans, and you must never accept a widow’s garment as security for her debt. 18 Always remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the Lord your God redeemed you from your slavery. That is why I have given you this command.
19 “When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don’t go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans, and widows. Then the Lord your God will bless you in all you do. 20 When you beat the olives from your olive trees, don’t go over the boughs twice. Leave the remaining olives for the foreigners, orphans, and widows. 21 When you gather the grapes in your vineyard, don’t glean the vines after they are picked. Leave the remaining grapes for the foreigners, orphans, and widows. 22 Remember that you were slaves in the land of Egypt. That is why I am giving you this command.
Love,
Jonathan
