Sensors

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“God gives us senses to use and detect good and evil things in our lives so that we can make the proper adjustments to correct our own problems, when our sensors sense what He is trying to teach us.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Sin

Sin has no friends and its popularity is but an illusion of fake happiness, joy, fun, and splendor in the grass.  In the beginning, middle, and end of it, you lose!  There is no hope for people who sin and turn their backs on God because when you die in your sins without God’s blessing of repentance, you lived your best life walking and talking with the devil and not God.  You are without excuse!

Since

Since many of us do not use our common sensors properly, one can easily identify people with little common sense.  After years and decades of people traveling down this evil path, your body tends to replace good behaviors with destructive behaviors.  This negative effect takes a toll on your mental, physical, and spiritual health because you taught yourself how to override God’s laws, rules, and commandments of love, justice, honor, and ethics. Stop the foolishness. 

Override

When you give evil the opportunity to master your mind, body, life, soul, and spirit, your fruit looks, smells, tastes, and feels corrupt, compromised, and condemned. Your hopelessness is a result of the many wasted days and nights of self-abuse, not listening to God, following the devil, and making your life a history of wrong choices.  However, if you humble yourself and pray that God delivers you from your own sensors and bad choices, perhaps God will give you one last chance.
Today’s Question
Did God give you a mindset to change from your evil wicked ways and are you still disobedient?

Psalm 53 

For the choir director: A meditation; a psalm[a] of David.

Only fools say in their hearts,
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;
    not one of them does good!
God looks down from heaven
    on the entire human race;
he looks to see if anyone is truly wise,
    if anyone seeks God.
But no, all have turned away;
    all have become corrupt.[b]
No one does good,
    not a single one!
Will those who do evil never learn?
    They eat up my people like bread
    and wouldn’t think of praying to God.
Terror will grip them,
    terror like they have never known before.
God will scatter the bones of your enemies.
    You will put them to shame, for God has rejected them.
Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?
    When God restores his people,
    Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.

Love,

Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Someone has to be brilliant in your family, so why can’t it be you with Christ shining in your life!” ~ Jon Barnes

Rather

God would rather you be hot or cold, good or bad, in or out, but this fake Christianity, false stuff, and man-made religious stuff that God does not respect or honor will not hold up in The Court of Pearly Gates!  God would rather you follow Him, honor His ways, commandments, and laws through Jesus.

Interesting

Interestingly enough, most of us are always following our stuff and we try to sprinkle a little God Dust over us as a cover-up, self-made, man-made tactical approach to damage control, hypocrisy, and lies.  God’s Court System is bigger, better, and smarter than any court system in the Universe and beyond.  There are no hung juries in Heaven with God as the Supreme Court Justice!

Understands

Fortunately, God understands our moves, motives, madness, and He has the best solutions to all of our problems, but will we listen to Him?  God is the Chess Master and we are the pieces on the board.  According to History, mankind has been evil since the beginning of time and notice how badly we have treated each other. Notice that it is the Goodness of God that sustains humanity and not we ourselves.

Psalm 52

 

For the director of music. A maskil of David. When Doeg the Edomite had gone to Saul and told him: “David has gone to the house of Ahimelek.”

1 Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God? 
2 You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor. 
3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. 
4 You love every harmful word, you deceitful tongue! 
5 Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. 
6 The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at you, saying, 
7 “Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!” 
8 But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. 
9 For what you have done I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people. And I will hope in your name, for your name is good.

Mad

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Stop getting mad at each new challenge, as if you don’t have a solution that fits.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Energize

Wasted energy on being upset will not help you learn, grow, and think on the good things God has planned for you.  The opposite occurs, with your anger stealing all of your hopes, dreams, love, and energy to do good work.  Many of us lose out on time, success, and love because we chose to live with a negative cloud over our heads and in our hearts.  For many, it rains everywhere they go!

Prayer

Occupy your mind, body, heart, spirit, and soul with prayers to God when you are happy, sad, mad, confessed, and unsure of what actions to take.  Talk to God whenever you like.  This step of prayer is the key to unlock the mysteries of faith in action.  The work you do will bring great results that will blow your mind and keep God smiling upon your life.  Your problems will escalate when you stop talking and praying to God.

Faith

By faith we give, love, help, serve, learn, live, and grow into the wonderful people God would have us to become.  This light from God connects to us, flows through us, and reconnects to all of the people you come in contact with.  What people do with this light becomes their choice to make and you cannot be mad at their choices.
Today’s Question
Are you using your energy to get the work done or are you always critical, upset, and mad at the world and God?

Psalm 47 

For the choir director: A psalm of the descendants of Korah.

Come, everyone! Clap your hands!
    Shout to God with joyful praise!
For the Lord Most High is awesome.
    He is the great King of all the earth.
He subdues the nations before us,
    putting our enemies beneath our feet.
He chose the Promised Land as our inheritance,
    the proud possession of Jacob’s descendants, whom he loves. Interlude
God has ascended with a mighty shout.
    The Lord has ascended with trumpets blaring.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
    sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King over all the earth.
    Praise him with a psalm.
God reigns above the nations,
    sitting on his holy throne.
The rulers of the world have gathered together
    with the people of the God of Abraham.
For all the kings of the earth belong to God.
    He is highly honored everywhere.

Love,

Jonathan

Boring

drill-3047522_1920Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Let Christ remove sin from your life by boring a tunnel through your stoney heart and replacing it with a new heart of love, thanksgiving, forgiveness, and repentance.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Bare

Let God bare the challenge of changing and improving who you are with reading each chapter from the Bible each day.  Challenge yourself by being humble and obedient to God with obeisant movements, showing great respect, work ethic, and an honest regard for your faith in Christ.

Bow

Bear in mind most people will never bow to the will of God or His lifestyle conditions, as they head straight to hell, living in their choices of disobedience.  There will be plenty of room and heat for the many to melt away their misguided minds into regret, gnashing of teeth, and agony for eternity.  You will not get a second chance after you die.

Remorse

As you repeat the “Lord’s Prayer”, allow God to teach you how to become a better person.  Recover your lost self and become who you really are from the heart.  Everyone else will notice a big difference in your lifestyle and will admire your better choice selections.
Today’s Question
Do you really want to change from your old wicked ways or are you headed for the incinerator?

Psalm 46

 

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song.

1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 
2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 
3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. 
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 
5God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. 
6Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. 
7The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 
8 Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. 
9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. 
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” 
11 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Big Picture

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The big picture of God becomes more into focus as we yield to the Will of God to see His face in all things honest, wonderful, and lovely.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Picture

You can now see that God created all things seen and unseen.  He knows and provides for all that exists, living or dead in all states of matter, antimatter, or being.  Nothing is stronger, faster, better, safer, bigger, smaller, or smarter than God.  Obviously, you cannot see God or understand His ways if you are a sinner trapped in the web of the devil.

Spider

When you are wrapped in satan’s spider web, you have become food for the wicked and your lifestyle and choices will service evil doings.  Your will for your life is what the spider uses to entrap you with your own devices and evil plots.  You are the spider spinning your own webs and traps by choice.  Pray that God delivers you from your wicked heart.

Face

Face yourself in the mirror and repent from your wickedness and foolish behavior.  God will honor your honesty, faith, and work as a disciple of Christ.  If you are not a true disciple of Christ, you will be destroyed by fire forever.
Today’s Question
Can you see the Big Picture and where you will go forever?

Psalm 51 

For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time Nathan the prophet came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.

Have mercy on me, O God,
    because of your unfailing love.
Because of your great compassion,
    blot out the stain of my sins.
Wash me clean from my guilt.
    Purify me from my sin.
For I recognize my rebellion;
    it haunts me day and night.
Against you, and you alone, have I sinned;
    I have done what is evil in your sight.
You will be proved right in what you say,
    and your judgment against me is just.
For I was born a sinner—
    yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.
But you desire honesty from the womb,
    teaching me wisdom even there.
Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean;
    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Oh, give me back my joy again;
    you have broken me—
    now let me rejoice.
Don’t keep looking at my sins.
    Remove the stain of my guilt.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God.
    Renew a loyal spirit within me.
11 Do not banish me from your presence,
    and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
    and make me willing to obey you.
13 Then I will teach your ways to rebels,
    and they will return to you.
14 Forgive me for shedding blood, O God who saves;
    then I will joyfully sing of your forgiveness.
15 Unseal my lips, O Lord,
    that my mouth may praise you.
16 You do not desire a sacrifice, or I would offer one.
    You do not want a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit.
    You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
18 Look with favor on Zion and help her;
    rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then you will be pleased with sacrifices offered in the right spirit—
    with burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings.
    Then bulls will again be sacrificed on your altar.

Love,

Jonathan

Patrol

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Patrol your own parameter of love in your life and reject any evil or wicked ideas from entering the space of your mind, heart, body, soul, or spirit, because when you die, only Christ can save you.”  ~  Jon Barnes  

Reject

Reject negative thoughts that would consume your time and energy.  Get rid of evil habits that will diminish your character and right standing with God.  Clean up your workspace, home, cars, computers, and stuff so that you can operate more effectively and efficiently.

Temptation

Reject the attraction of stuff, temptation, lust, fame, money, and the ruble wisdom of evil, the bling(s) subtle attractions and charm, like fools gold.  Let Jesus test the authenticity of your findings, actions, motives, and plans for the future.  Don’t bet your life of eternity with God on a horse race, slot machine, card game, or a scam from the devil.

Big Screen

Do not become brainwashed from the movies, TV Shows, media, and other advertisements that are used to negate the Word of God from your lifestyle.  Run your daily diagnostic with Jesus to detect and fix problems that you may not detect on your own.  His Big Screen TV can see it all to help patrol and improve your walk with God.
Stay on patrol and stay away from wicked, evil people.

Psalm 50 

A psalm of Asaph.

The Lord, the Mighty One, is God,
    and he has spoken;
he has summoned all humanity
    from where the sun rises to where it sets.
From Mount Zion, the perfection of beauty,
    God shines in glorious radiance.
Our God approaches,
    and he is not silent.
Fire devours everything in his way,
    and a great storm rages around him.
He calls on the heavens above and earth below
    to witness the judgment of his people.
“Bring my faithful people to me—
    those who made a covenant with me by giving sacrifices.”
Then let the heavens proclaim his justice,
    for God himself will be the judge. Interlude
“O my people, listen as I speak.
    Here are my charges against you, O Israel:
    I am God, your God!
I have no complaint about your sacrifices
    or the burnt offerings you constantly offer.
But I do not need the bulls from your barns
    or the goats from your pens.
10 For all the animals of the forest are mine,
    and I own the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know every bird on the mountains,
    and all the animals of the field are mine.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you,
    for all the world is mine and everything in it.
13 Do I eat the meat of bulls?
    Do I drink the blood of goats?
14 Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God,
    and keep the vows you made to the Most High.
15 Then call on me when you are in trouble,
    and I will rescue you,
    and you will give me glory.”
16 But God says to the wicked:
“Why bother reciting my decrees
    and pretending to obey my covenant?
17 For you refuse my discipline
    and treat my words like trash.
18 When you see thieves, you approve of them,
    and you spend your time with adulterers.
19 Your mouth is filled with wickedness,
    and your tongue is full of lies.
20 You sit around and slander your brother—
    your own mother’s son.
21 While you did all this, I remained silent,
    and you thought I didn’t care.
But now I will rebuke you,
    listing all my charges against you.
22 Repent, all of you who forget me,
    or I will tear you apart,
    and no one will help you.
23 But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me.
    If you keep to my path,
    I will reveal to you the salvation of God.”
Love,
 
Jonathan

Walls

vaulted-cellar-247391_1920.jpg
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“We build walls and God tears them down so that we can love, live, share, give, and learn from each other.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Tunnels

Walls create a tunnel vision of isolation, separation, and desperation so that your love cannot be exposed for others to see, feel, and experience.  Open up your window, get out of the house, and spread your joy of The Lord.  Hiding in a tunnel, room, house, or cave will not help others to learn and grow in their faith.  Exit your self-made tunnel. 

Fences

People need each other to help cross over fences, migrate, travel, and to relocate their families from evil situations into the light of love.  Sometimes it is best to move away from evil people and their wicked practices so that your family can have a better opportunity to learn, love, share, give, pray, and hope for a better future.  It is not wise to fence yourself into a bad situation when you can create a better one.

Borders

Create a border of protection around your family that is clear, invisible, and full of love from God, because you have taught them about the love of Christ in your heart.  The quality of work, faith, and time you spend with your family will fight off drugs, alcohol, abuse, waste, laziness, and disobedience.  Let the invisible Walls of God’s Love connect us to the Kingdom of God and tear down all man-made fake borders of patrol.

Psalm 49 

For the choir director: A psalm of the descendants of Korah.

Listen to this, all you people!
    Pay attention, everyone in the world!
High and low,
    rich and poor—listen!
For my words are wise,
    and my thoughts are filled with insight.
I listen carefully to many proverbs
    and solve riddles with inspiration from a harp.
Why should I fear when trouble comes,
    when enemies surround me?
They trust in their wealth
    and boast of great riches.
Yet they cannot redeem themselves from death[a]
    by paying a ransom to God.
Redemption does not come so easily,
    for no one can ever pay enough
to live forever
    and never see the grave.
10 Those who are wise must finally die,
    just like the foolish and senseless,
    leaving all their wealth behind.
11 The grave is their eternal home,
    where they will stay forever.
They may name their estates after themselves,
12     but their fame will not last.
    They will die, just like animals.
13 This is the fate of fools,
    though they are remembered as being wise. Interlude
14 Like sheep, they are led to the grave,
    where death will be their shepherd.
In the morning the godly will rule over them.
    Their bodies will rot in the grave,
    far from their grand estates.
15 But as for me, God will redeem my life.
    He will snatch me from the power of the grave. Interlude
16 So don’t be dismayed when the wicked grow rich
    and their homes become ever more splendid.
17 For when they die, they take nothing with them.
    Their wealth will not follow them into the grave.
18 In this life they consider themselves fortunate
    and are applauded for their success.
19 But they will die like all before them
    and never again see the light of day.
20 People who boast of their wealth don’t understand;
    they will die, just like animals.
Love,
 
Jonathan
