Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Many of You have been sent a birthday gift from God and evil stops you from opening it, since the devil’s gift is Hell and your Gift is Heaven.” ~ Jon Barnes

The Cake

If you put enough icing on a pile of dog poop with some candles, it will look and smell like a nice birthday cake until you bite into it. Evil takes the cake, replace it with poop, and scooped up your birthday wish and present from God.

The Candles

Light a candle for every year you will spend in hell for not obeying God.  How many candles did you light? Now multiply the amount of candles per person who will be with you in hell and you will get an idea of how hot hell will be for you and you arrogance, disobedience, and evil pride. Your soul is payment in full for the right to light up the birthday candles in Hell.

The Wish

Make a Wish as you try to blow out hell’s candles with your hot air of a lifetime, full of lies, lust, and lavish scandal, only to realize you cannot make a wish with God or blow out hell’s infinite amount of trick candles.
Come on Baby, light my Fire?
Today’s Question 
Did you let satan trick you into not opening up your birthday gift to party with him in hell or can you imagine the heat of a dream deferred?

2 Timothy 4

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead,and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Personal Remarks

Do your best to come to me quickly, 10 for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titusto Dalmatia. 11 Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry. 12 I sent Tychicus to Ephesus. 13 When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments.
14 Alexander the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will repay him for what he has done. 15 You too should be on your guard against him, because he strongly opposed our message.
16 At my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. 17 But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion’s mouth. 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Final Greetings

19 Greet Priscilla[a] and Aquila and the household of Onesiphorus. 20 Erastus stayed in Corinth, and I left Trophimus sick in Miletus. 21 Do your best to get here before winter.Eubulus greets you, and so do Pudens, Linus, Claudia and all the brothers and sisters.[b]
22 The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you all.
Love,
Jonathan

Money Love

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Our hearts wax cold all around the globe, when the love of money replaces the Love of God in our lifestyles, which unfold and the ways of mankind become like the few rich people, who jet past the enslaved poor on a daily basis and do nothing.”
 ~ Jon Barnes

The Present

Money was invented by man to be used to exchange goods for services, yet money lovers use it too con, deceit, lie, cheat, buy and steal the lives of innocent victims unaware of evil intentions. The exchange looks like a blessing or birthday present at first and then it reveals the present curse and course of destruction, war, poverty, divisions of people, prostitution, gambling, child neglect, separation on family, waste, world hunger, pollution, genocide, working class slavery and the likes.

The Past

In the past, people with childlike hearts, sharing land, water, air space, food, shelter, knowledge, technology, and God’s Love were victimized and taken advantage of and made confused by the evil shell game, bait and switch tactics on every level of our society around the world. Wine, song, dance, women, drugs, and food were also used to cloud and blur good judgement to forge crooked deals and treaties into broken dreams and promises

The Pass

People who obey God have learned to fight the Good Fight of Love and run the race of slow compassion, grace, and mercy, which takes the time to mature, nurturing the poor with a Pass of Repentance into the Kingdom of God. God has no need to fight Himself and nothing can fight with God! We pass right by God everyday in all things, yet we do not know Him, because our evil hearts blocks our minds, eyes, ears, and sense; making us unaware and unable to see, touch, feel, or know our Creator God. Like a bird who places itself in a cage, we are?

Today’s Question

Did you walk past your Pass to pass up your loving relationship with the love of your life in Heaven to be thrown in the dungeon of hell for eternity, because you have been tricked into loving money, greed, and the illusion of power?

2 Timothy 3

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires,always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

A Final Charge to Timothy

10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse,deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it,15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Love,

Jonathan

Killin It

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Don’t let evil win the game, kill it with Goodness, Kindness, wisdom, and Love from God, which totally destroys evil from the root of forgiveness, peace, and long-suffering.” ~ Jon Barnes

The Root

Pulling the weeds up by the root gives you better soil to grow a wonderfully Good Crop. Your hard work never goes unnoticed and your reward will be full of love, if you do not faint and listen to your evil friends.  Find Good Friends to encourage you and walk with God to oversee your efforts. God will do the killing for you, on your behalf, in His Will.

The Tree

The tree grows by plenty of water, which God supplies us all with each day, if we choose to drink from the river of life and feed our Spirit and Soul. Our tree will wither and die if we choose to follow evil and side with lust, greed, power, and worldly mindless stuff.

Vegetation

Vegetation is a lifestyle, lifecycle worth studying to understand the wisdom of God, how to organize, maintain, and control the balance in your own lifestyle. God gives us clues and answers to many problems we may face is we do the good work and research of loving and caring for one another. A flesh eating mind is full of evil, so try eating your veggies to clean up the mess you are eating, doing, and seeing!

2 Timothy 2

The Appeal Renewed

You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. 10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect,that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
11 Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him,
    we will also live with him;
12 if we endure,
    we will also reign with him.
If we disown him,
    he will also disown us;
13 if we are faithless,
    he remains faithful,
    for he cannot disown himself.

Dealing With False Teachers

14 Keep reminding God’s people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 16 Avoid godless chatter,because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. 17 Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have departed from the truth. They say that the resurrection has already taken place, and they destroy the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm,sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. 21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
Love,
Jonathan
