Today’s Quote
“Many people misuse, misguide, lie, cheat, steal, and purposefully misplace God’s Truth to distort reality to benefit themselves, which provides a negative relationship, role model, and reality for yourself, kids, parents, grandparents, family, spouse, other people, and God.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Never

Never put yourself in a negative position to where your own spouse, children, family, and friends lose respect for you and the choices that you make each day in your life.  Your laziness and deceit smell like the poor work you put into your relationship with God and your family. The fruit of your work will be as rotten as your motives, mindset, health, body, and willingness to change negative habits. When you stop exercising God’s faith and principles you will behave like the negative characters in the Bible.

Stop

Stop thinking that you know it all or need to see and know everything.  We are not God.  When you are alone and isolated in your stupor and sin, pray, repent, and think again on your own motives of honesty to correct your behavior. Why sabotage your own life?  Evil will blind and bind you up with the devil’s cause, without you even knowing it.  Do not live in isolation, ignorance, and trashy mess.

Learning

Admitting that you are wrong and changing your wicked ways is the beginning steps of true love, repentance, and obedience to God and other people.  Since God will judge your behavior, the effects of your lifestyle will be seen by all who know you, as your mess will be all over your house and into the streets.  Your sin will be a public embarrassment unto yourself unless you learn to obey the truth and stop living in your personal lies!
Today’s Question
Why are you such a hypocrite, who is unwilling to change, repent, or discuss terms of improvement?

Job 42 

Job Responds to the Lord

42 Then Job replied to the Lord:
“I know that you can do anything,
    and no one can stop you.
You asked, ‘Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance?’
    It is I—and I was talking about things I knew nothing about,
    things far too wonderful for me.
You said, ‘Listen and I will speak!
    I have some questions for you,
    and you must answer them.’
I had only heard about you before,
    but now I have seen you with my own eyes.
I take back everything I said,
    and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”

Conclusion: The Lord Blesses Job

After the Lord had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has. So take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer on your behalf. I will not treat you as you deserve, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has.” So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite did as the Lord commanded them, and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer.
10 When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lordgave him twice as much as before! 11 Then all his brothers, sisters, and former friends came and feasted with him in his home. And they consoled him and comforted him because of all the trials the Lord had brought against him. And each of them brought him a gift of money[a] and a gold ring.
12 So the Lord blessed Job in the second half of his life even more than in the beginning. For now he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys. 13 He also gave Job seven more sons and three more daughters. 14 He named his first daughter Jemimah, the second Keziah, and the third Keren-happuch. 15 In all the land no women were as lovely as the daughters of Job. And their father put them into his will along with their brothers.
16 Job lived 140 years after that, living to see four generations of his children and grandchildren. 17 Then he died, an old man who had lived a long, full life.

Love,

Jonathan

Repentance

bible-2167778_1920 (1)
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Dear God and people, please forgive me of all the sin I have done in my life to cause hurt, pain, suffering, and unnecessary anguish onto others, knowingly, willingly, and unknowingly and Please help me to stay on track with the Commandments in the Bible.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Goodness

Pretending to do good works with altered selfish motives of evil and greed can be detected by God.  For show, many will look the part to fool people, but God cannot be fooled.  For sure, your lies and fake repentance will burn you up in the end, spiritually, physically, and literally.  Do not lie to God with fake, false, and phony prayers, of heartless intentions.

My Prayers

Allow God to teach you how to pray and work from your secret closet, so that your blessings will be noticed from the Hand of God and not your hands.  Consistently meet and use your prayer closet of repentance, worship, and meditation for learning, reading, counseling, and wisdom to stay connected to God and not your own self-righteous, manmade image.  People will automatically know that God honors and answers your prayers, based on the trail of blessing you leave behind in your walk with God.

Your Prayers

Your prayers, faith, and work will be taken seriously, based on the honest integrity of your obedience and not your cunning abilities to paint half-truths with white lies, deception, and ambiguity.  Your prayers, language, and actions should be direct, genuine, to the point with few words, so that you minimize the risk of lying and vain babbling.  Repent and spread the Word of Faith in your daily practice in life’s journey.
Today’s Question
Are you still pretending in your repentance, faith, charity, love, and thanksgiving, only to be publicly seen and heard by people and not God?

Job 41 

The Lord’s Challenge Continues

41 [a]“Can you catch Leviathan[b] with a hook
    or put a noose around its jaw?
Can you tie it with a rope through the nose
    or pierce its jaw with a spike?
Will it beg you for mercy
    or implore you for pity?
Will it agree to work for you,
    to be your slave for life?
Can you make it a pet like a bird,
    or give it to your little girls to play with?
Will merchants try to buy it
    to sell it in their shops?
Will its hide be hurt by spears
    or its head by a harpoon?
If you lay a hand on it,
    you will certainly remember the battle that follows.
    You won’t try that again!
[c]No, it is useless to try to capture it.
    The hunter who attempts it will be knocked down.
10 And since no one dares to disturb it,
    who then can stand up to me?
11 Who has given me anything that I need to pay back?
    Everything under heaven is mine.
12 “I want to emphasize Leviathan’s limbs
    and its enormous strength and graceful form.
13 Who can strip off its hide,
    and who can penetrate its double layer of armor?[d]
14 Who could pry open its jaws?
    For its teeth are terrible!
15 The scales on its back are like[e] rows of shields
    tightly sealed together.
16 They are so close together
    that no air can get between them.
17 Each scale sticks tight to the next.
    They interlock and cannot be penetrated.
18 “When it sneezes, it flashes light!
    Its eyes are like the red of dawn.
19 Lightning leaps from its mouth;
    flames of fire flash out.
20 Smoke streams from its nostrils
    like steam from a pot heated over burning rushes.
21 Its breath would kindle coals,
    for flames shoot from its mouth.
22 “The tremendous strength in Leviathan’s neck
    strikes terror wherever it goes.
23 Its flesh is hard and firm
    and cannot be penetrated.
24 Its heart is hard as rock,
    hard as a millstone.
25 When it rises, the mighty are afraid,
    gripped by terror.
26 No sword can stop it,
    no spear, dart, or javelin.
27 Iron is nothing but straw to that creature,
    and bronze is like rotten wood.
28 Arrows cannot make it flee.
    Stones shot from a sling are like bits of grass.
29 Clubs are like a blade of grass,
    and it laughs at the swish of javelins.
30 Its belly is covered with scales as sharp as glass.
    It plows up the ground as it drags through the mud.
31 “Leviathan makes the water boil with its commotion.
    It stirs the depths like a pot of ointment.
32 The water glistens in its wake,
    making the sea look white.
33 Nothing on earth is its equal,
    no other creature so fearless.
34 Of all the creatures, it is the proudest.
    It is the king of beasts.”

Love,

Jonathan

Plate

flat-lay-2583212_1920.jpgHi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“There is enough on your plate to do your job, work, planning, reading, studying, eating, and  exercising well, so that your relationship with God and others improve as you age, for all to see and tell.” ~  Jon Barnes

Fork

Many are called but few are chosen because we are so busy sticking forks into people’s eyes with the mean things we say and do.  Close your mouth, get to work, exercise your faith, eat less, and use your fork properly.  Stop blaming everyone for your own problems, faults, and lack of focus. Stick a fork in your balloon of pride and do what God says, by not being lazy or foolish.

Spoon

Expect what God says to work for you in your life, otherwise, you are not eating and chewing your spiritual food correctly.  The more you chew on God’s work, the better you will understand and digest the milk, meat, vegetables, and potatoes.  Drink and keep lots of Holy Water, with the Blood of Jesus to keep yourself clean after each meal.

Napkin

Bless your food, give thanks, close your mouth, chew your food, stop complaining, and talking about negative stuff all of the time.  Wipe your face and hands during and after your meal and be thankful for what you have and the improvements of progress.  Take the time to finish what God has on your plate and stop eating from the plate of others.  No need to be greedy, gaining weight, being nosey, and doing incomplete work.
Today’s Question
Will your relationship with God, your spouse, family, friends, and enemies improve because your plate is cleaned each day by obeying God and finishing your own work?

Job 40 

40 Then the Lord said to Job,
“Do you still want to argue with the Almighty?
    You are God’s critic, but do you have the answers?”

Job Responds to the Lord

Then Job replied to the Lord,
“I am nothing—how could I ever find the answers?
    I will cover my mouth with my hand.
I have said too much already.
    I have nothing more to say.”

The Lord Challenges Job Again

Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind:
“Brace yourself like a man,
    because I have some questions for you,
    and you must answer them.
“Will you discredit my justice
    and condemn me just to prove you are right?
Are you as strong as God?
    Can you thunder with a voice like his?
10 All right, put on your glory and splendor,
    your honor and majesty.
11 Give vent to your anger.
    Let it overflow against the proud.
12 Humiliate the proud with a glance;
    walk on the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them in the dust.
    Imprison them in the world of the dead.
14 Then even I would praise you,
    for your own strength would save you.
15 “Take a look at Behemoth,[a]
    which I made, just as I made you.
    It eats grass like an ox.
16 See its powerful loins
    and the muscles of its belly.
17 Its tail is as strong as a cedar.
    The sinews of its thighs are knit tightly together.
18 Its bones are tubes of bronze.
    Its limbs are bars of iron.
19 It is a prime example of God’s handiwork,
    and only its Creator can threaten it.
20 The mountains offer it their best food,
    where all the wild animals play.
21 It lies under the lotus plants,[b]
    hidden by the reeds in the marsh.
22 The lotus plants give it shade
    among the willows beside the stream.
23 It is not disturbed by the raging river,
    not concerned when the swelling Jordan rushes around it.
24 No one can catch it off guard
    or put a ring in its nose and lead it away.

Love,

Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
When someone doesn’t believe in marriage, family, values, and ethics of God’s wisdom, mercy, grace, love, structure, and commandments, you should believe them by finding a mate that does.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Job

A person will never need a job if they can get milk, food, meat, clothes, and stuff for free.  There is no incentive to improve, learn, grow, work, and love in any relationship.  We all have a job to play with rules, regulations, commandments, and obligations.  Good relationships thrive on the quality of work and faith you bring to the table of your life, family, friends, and job.

Allow

Don’t allow people to ignore or fumble around with their responsibilities.  Expect and demand better of yourself and others will follow when we follow God’s plans.   Being meek and humble in your pride is cool, but be aggressive in doing excellent work in your faith.  People will know what you stand for and make their own choices.

Standard

The standards that you set with God’s best will help you to identify your spouse, raise your children, and accomplish the work of faith in your lifestyle of love.  Love is not a rug to step on.  God is love, but he will let you go to hell, by your own choice.  God does not enable anyone.  He is very clear and specific with His Instructions and the work of your faith matters.
Today’s Question
Why is it that many people will not enter into the Gates of Heaven or do you think God will leave the Pearly Gates Unlocked for the disobedient people who did nothing?

Job 39 

The Lord’s Challenge Continues

39 “Do you know when the wild goats give birth?
    Have you watched as deer are born in the wild?
Do you know how many months they carry their young?
    Are you aware of the time of their delivery?
They crouch down to give birth to their young
    and deliver their offspring.
Their young grow up in the open fields,
    then leave home and never return.
“Who gives the wild donkey its freedom?
    Who untied its ropes?
I have placed it in the wilderness;
    its home is the wasteland.
It hates the noise of the city
    and has no driver to shout at it.
The mountains are its pastureland,
    where it searches for every blade of grass.
“Will the wild ox consent to being tamed?
    Will it spend the night in your stall?
10 Can you hitch a wild ox to a plow?
    Will it plow a field for you?
11 Given its strength, can you trust it?
    Can you leave and trust the ox to do your work?
12 Can you rely on it to bring home your grain
    and deliver it to your threshing floor?
13 “The ostrich flaps her wings grandly,
    but they are no match for the feathers of the stork.
14 She lays her eggs on top of the earth,
    letting them be warmed in the dust.
15 She doesn’t worry that a foot might crush them
    or a wild animal might destroy them.
16 She is harsh toward her young,
    as if they were not her own.
    She doesn’t care if they die.
17 For God has deprived her of wisdom.
    He has given her no understanding.
18 But whenever she jumps up to run,
    she passes the swiftest horse with its rider.
19 “Have you given the horse its strength
    or clothed its neck with a flowing mane?
20 Did you give it the ability to leap like a locust?
    Its majestic snorting is terrifying!
21 It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength
    when it charges out to battle.
22 It laughs at fear and is unafraid.
    It does not run from the sword.
23 The arrows rattle against it,
    and the spear and javelin flash.
24 It paws the ground fiercely
    and rushes forward into battle when the ram’s horn blows.
25 It snorts at the sound of the horn.
    It senses the battle in the distance.
    It quivers at the captain’s commands and the noise of battle.
26 “Is it your wisdom that makes the hawk soar
    and spread its wings toward the south?
27 Is it at your command that the eagle rises
    to the heights to make its nest?
28 It lives on the cliffs,
    making its home on a distant, rocky crag.
29 From there it hunts its prey,
    keeping watch with piercing eyes.
30 Its young gulp down blood.
    Where there’s a carcass, there you’ll find it.”
Love,
Jonathan

Sex

brown-518324_1920Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The sexuality of a person is regulated from the eyes, imagination, and mind of a person and I refuse to glare, fantasize, or touch things that will cause me to sin or do not belong to me in my marriage.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Porn

Pornography, gambling, infidelity, fornication, lying, cheating, and stealing and all sinful.  These are personal habits and choices that are hard to get rid of.  Like, crack, coke, meth, opioids, alcohol, drugs and other abusive behaviors that exploit people numbs the mind, kills the heart, and robs the soul, avoid these things at all cost. Ask God to give you better things to do with your time to enjoy what is yours and not mine.

Access

Easy access and free samples seem harmless to the mind of a child, but you are no longer a child and should know better.  The things you do now, your children and family will copy, which may be a snare to the next generations to come.  Your depression, addictions, and medical complications will come from your parents’ inability to solve these basic problems and your lust for copying stupid activities of old.  Lazy people don’t want honest solutions, otherwise, they would use them.

Human

Human trafficking of the mind is at an all-time high with drugs, sex, and bad music messages that robs the innocence of our youth and society.  We must be proactive and vigilant in explaining these things to our kids, families, and friends because it is a cultural, worldwide, epidemic.  Let us not be drunk, confused, blinded, or ignorant in the wicked ways of our mainstreamed, worldwide, Internet culture.  Take a stand, protect the future of your family, and treat sin like an opioid addiction. 
Today’s Question
Are you fighting the good fight of faith in front of your computer, TV, colleagues, friends, family, and enemies or has the sex appeal of laziness, substance abuse, dishonest habits, and lust clouded your judgment?

Job 38 

The Lord Challenges Job

38 Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind:
“Who is this that questions my wisdom
    with such ignorant words?
Brace yourself like a man,
    because I have some questions for you,
    and you must answer them.
“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
    Tell me, if you know so much.
Who determined its dimensions
    and stretched out the surveying line?
What supports its foundations,
    and who laid its cornerstone
as the morning stars sang together
    and all the angels[a] shouted for joy?
“Who kept the sea inside its boundaries
    as it burst from the womb,
and as I clothed it with clouds
    and wrapped it in thick darkness?
10 For I locked it behind barred gates,
    limiting its shores.
11 I said, ‘This far and no farther will you come.
    Here your proud waves must stop!’
12 “Have you ever commanded the morning to appear
    and caused the dawn to rise in the east?
13 Have you made daylight spread to the ends of the earth,
    to bring an end to the night’s wickedness?
14 As the light approaches,
    the earth takes shape like clay pressed beneath a seal;
    it is robed in brilliant colors.[b]
15 The light disturbs the wicked
    and stops the arm that is raised in violence.
16 “Have you explored the springs from which the seas come?
    Have you explored their depths?
17 Do you know where the gates of death are located?
    Have you seen the gates of utter gloom?
18 Do you realize the extent of the earth?
    Tell me about it if you know!
19 “Where does light come from,
    and where does darkness go?
20 Can you take each to its home?
    Do you know how to get there?
21 But of course you know all this!
For you were born before it was all created,
    and you are so very experienced!
22 “Have you visited the storehouses of the snow
    or seen the storehouses of hail?
23 (I have reserved them as weapons for the time of trouble,
    for the day of battle and war.)
24 Where is the path to the source of light?
    Where is the home of the east wind?
25 “Who created a channel for the torrents of rain?
    Who laid out the path for the lightning?
26 Who makes the rain fall on barren land,
    in a desert where no one lives?
27 Who sends rain to satisfy the parched ground
    and make the tender grass spring up?
28 “Does the rain have a father?
    Who gives birth to the dew?
29 Who is the mother of the ice?
    Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens?
30 For the water turns to ice as hard as rock,
    and the surface of the water freezes.
31 “Can you direct the movement of the stars—
    binding the cluster of the Pleiades
    or loosening the cords of Orion?
32 Can you direct the constellations through the seasons
    or guide the Bear with her cubs across the heavens?
33 Do you know the laws of the universe?
    Can you use them to regulate the earth?
34 “Can you shout to the clouds
    and make it rain?
35 Can you make lightning appear
    and cause it to strike as you direct?
36 Who gives intuition to the heart
    and instinct to the mind?
37 Who is wise enough to count all the clouds?
    Who can tilt the water jars of heaven
38 when the parched ground is dry
    and the soil has hardened into clods?
39 “Can you stalk prey for a lioness
    and satisfy the young lions’ appetites
40 as they lie in their dens
    or crouch in the thicket?
41 Who provides food for the ravens
    when their young cry out to God
    and wander about in hunger?

Perfection

water-1759703_1920 (2)
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Sometimes the truth of perfection sounds so negative that you have to be careful how you deliver the message so that people can receive what God is sharing with you to tell others.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Showing

Living and showing your message will be a great example of role play, role modeling, and effecting positive changes in life, relationships, and family dynamics. The inside will see the outside of our character and they will never be strangers.  Also, we will all piss each other off each day, if we allow the devil to steal of joy, sense of humor, and humility.  It is always a good practice to reflect and think before talking so much.  Writing and reading help a lot too.

Quiet

Let God show you solutions in you quiet hour and notice how much stronger your faith develops to see the daily miracles right before your eyes. Do not fall off the deep edged cliff, because you took your eyes off of Christ, by thinking that you are perfect and know all things.  Learn to listen and copy God’s ways in your thoughts, words, work, actions, and deeds.

Reservation

Take small steps and look carefully into what you say and do, as you learn, grow, and improve your standing with God, family, friends, and enemies.  Your timing and smile mean a lot when delivering the important daily messages of love, hope, and mercy.  We are not robots, machines, aliens, or animal from the forest.  Every battle is not for you to win.
Today’s Question
Does the gift of Love requires you to sacrifice and give something that is perfect?

 

Job 37 

37 “My heart pounds as I think of this.
    It trembles within me.
Listen carefully to the thunder of God’s voice
    as it rolls from his mouth.
It rolls across the heavens,
    and his lightning flashes in every direction.
Then comes the roaring of the thunder—
    the tremendous voice of his majesty.
    He does not restrain it when he speaks.
God’s voice is glorious in the thunder.
    We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power.
“He directs the snow to fall on the earth
    and tells the rain to pour down.
Then everyone stops working
    so they can watch his power.
The wild animals take cover
    and stay inside their dens.
The stormy wind comes from its chamber,
    and the driving winds bring the cold.
10 God’s breath sends the ice,
    freezing wide expanses of water.
11 He loads the clouds with moisture,
    and they flash with his lightning.
12 The clouds churn about at his direction.
    They do whatever he commands throughout the earth.
13 He makes these things happen either to punish people
    or to show his unfailing love.
14 “Pay attention to this, Job.
    Stop and consider the wonderful miracles of God!
15 Do you know how God controls the storm
    and causes the lightning to flash from his clouds?
16 Do you understand how he moves the clouds
    with wonderful perfection and skill?
17 When you are sweltering in your clothes
    and the south wind dies down and everything is still,
18 he makes the skies reflect the heat like a bronze mirror.
    Can you do that?
19 “So teach the rest of us what to say to God.
    We are too ignorant to make our own arguments.
20 Should God be notified that I want to speak?
    Can people even speak when they are confused?[a]
21 We cannot look at the sun,
    for it shines brightly in the sky
    when the wind clears away the clouds.
22 So also, golden splendor comes from the mountain of God.[b]
    He is clothed in dazzling splendor.
23 We cannot imagine the power of the Almighty;
    but even though he is just and righteous,
    he does not destroy us.
24 No wonder people everywhere fear him.
    All who are wise show him reverence.[c]

Love,

Jonathan

Job 36 

36 Elihu continued speaking:
“Let me go on, and I will show you the truth.
    For I have not finished defending God!
I will present profound arguments
    for the righteousness of my Creator.
I am telling you nothing but the truth,
    for I am a man of great knowledge.
“God is mighty, but he does not despise anyone!
    He is mighty in both power and understanding.
He does not let the wicked live
    but gives justice to the afflicted.
He never takes his eyes off the innocent,
    but he sets them on thrones with kings
    and exalts them forever.
If they are bound in chains
    and caught up in a web of trouble,
he shows them the reason.
    He shows them their sins of pride.
10 He gets their attention
    and commands that they turn from evil.
11 “If they listen and obey God,
    they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives.
    All their years will be pleasant.
12 But if they refuse to listen to him,
    they will cross over the river of death,
    dying from lack of understanding.
13 For the godless are full of resentment.
    Even when he punishes them,
    they refuse to cry out to him for help.
14 They die when they are young,
    after wasting their lives in immoral living.
15 But by means of their suffering, he rescues those who suffer.
    For he gets their attention through adversity.
16 “God is leading you away from danger, Job,
    to a place free from distress.
    He is setting your table with the best food.
17 But you are obsessed with whether the godless will be judged.
    Don’t worry, judgment and justice will be upheld.
18 But watch out, or you may be seduced by wealth.[a]
    Don’t let yourself be bribed into sin.
19 Could all your wealth[b]
    or all your mighty efforts
    keep you from distress?
20 Do not long for the cover of night,
    for that is when people will be destroyed.[c]
21 Be on guard! Turn back from evil,
    for God sent this suffering
    to keep you from a life of evil.

Elihu Reminds Job of God’s Power

22 “Look, God is all-powerful.
    Who is a teacher like him?
23 No one can tell him what to do,
    or say to him, ‘You have done wrong.’
24 Instead, glorify his mighty works,
    singing songs of praise.
25 Everyone has seen these things,
    though only from a distance.
26 “Look, God is greater than we can understand.
    His years cannot be counted.
27 He draws up the water vapor
    and then distills it into rain.
28 The rain pours down from the clouds,
    and everyone benefits.
29 Who can understand the spreading of the clouds
    and the thunder that rolls forth from heaven?
30 See how he spreads the lightning around him
    and how it lights up the depths of the sea.
31 By these mighty acts he nourishes[d] the people,
    giving them food in abundance.
32 He fills his hands with lightning bolts
    and hurls each at its target.
33 The thunder announces his presence;
    the storm announces his indignant anger.[e]

Love,

Jonathan

Invitation

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“New things will happen with God’s invitation and blessings, because of your obedience to copy and innovate better solutions for the future with grace, mercy, and precision.” ~  Jon Barnes

Outreach

Your organized strategies, plans, and path will be sound, wise and complete no matter where you go around the globe with God’s message of love and faith.  People will look up to you and copy your good works of faith, because of your inspiration, discipline, and love.  They will not copy your hypocrisy, but they will mock you and your stupidity.

Preparation

Each day, read, study, meditate, pray, and follow the new information God gives you so that you are prepared to give as you receive and share with others.  Organize your time and movements to make things more efficient.  People will ask questions and receive what you have to give, in love, patience, meekness, kindness, long-suffering, and joy.

Participation

Your daily participation with The Fruit of The Spirit will help you to grow in grace, kindness, and effectiveness so that your family prospers from the innovation and invitation of God’s perspective.  Take this talent, mindset, heart, dedication, and work of faith where ever you go and God will be at your side all of the time to help you.
Today’s Question
Are you ignoring God’s daily invitations and innovations in your works of faith, based on your laziness, inaction, and old-fashioned methods?
 

Job 35 

Elihu Reminds Job of God’s Justice

35 Then Elihu said:
“Do you think it is right for you to claim,
    ‘I am righteous before God’?
For you also ask, ‘What’s in it for me?
    What’s the use of living a righteous life?’
“I will answer you
    and all your friends, too.
Look up into the sky,
    and see the clouds high above you.
If you sin, how does that affect God?
    Even if you sin again and again,
    what effect will it have on him?
If you are good, is this some great gift to him?
    What could you possibly give him?
No, your sins affect only people like yourself,
    and your good deeds also affect only humans.
“People cry out when they are oppressed.
    They groan beneath the power of the mighty.
10 Yet they don’t ask, ‘Where is God my Creator,
    the one who gives songs in the night?
11 Where is the one who makes us smarter than the animals
    and wiser than the birds of the sky?’
12 And when they cry out, God does not answer
    because of their pride.
13 But it is wrong to say God doesn’t listen,
    to say the Almighty isn’t concerned.
14 You say you can’t see him,
    but he will bring justice if you will only wait.[a]
15 You say he does not respond to sinners with anger
    and is not greatly concerned about wickedness.[b]
16 But you are talking nonsense, Job.
    You have spoken like a fool.”
 
Love,
Jonathan

Language

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The sounds of silent vibrations hold the true meanings of your intentions to let God know who you really are in Him and they account for your existence, destiny before, during, and after time, space, and age of ages.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Feel

I feel that you cannot comprehend what God is saying unless you allow Him to teach you all things.  If not, you will read and know God’s words and works, but you will still be evil and not comprehend Good.  If not, you will hear, understand and know that good new but you will adamantly reject God’s Truth and replace it with your own truth.  I feel there is hope if you do the listening and work of faith in love, by talking less.

Vibrate

Who you are vibrates in the continuous loop of time, space, matter, math, and logic to God in His Own Language of Wisdom that surpasses any understanding, as you are without excuse for knowing and understanding who God is!  Your foolishness consumes and destroys your own soul with your own actions of vibrations before you speak a word or do work.  Follow God’s vibrations of love and light from His Word and you will be the salt of the earth, singing and living with joy.

Become

Become and develop your true vibrations in God before the devil steals them from you, based on your acceptance to the team of evil.  Resist the temptation of disobedience, sin, and mayhem.  Become the Child in Christ with your consent and constant deeds of repentance, acceptance, work, and faith in God that vibrates your name into the Book of Life, with the Blood of Christ in ink.
Today’s Question
Is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life or did your vibrations erase your name from God’s true destination for your soul?

Job 33 

Elihu Presents His Case against Job

33 “Listen to my words, Job;
    pay attention to what I have to say.
Now that I have begun to speak,
    let me continue.
I speak with all sincerity;
    I speak the truth.
For the Spirit of God has made me,
    and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Answer me, if you can;
    make your case and take your stand.
Look, you and I both belong to God.
    I, too, was formed from clay.
So you don’t need to be afraid of me.
    I won’t come down hard on you.
“You have spoken in my hearing,
    and I have heard your very words.
You said, ‘I am pure; I am without sin;
    I am innocent; I have no guilt.
10 God is picking a quarrel with me,
    and he considers me his enemy.
11 He puts my feet in the stocks
    and watches my every move.’
12 “But you are wrong, and I will show you why.
    For God is greater than any human being.
13 So why are you bringing a charge against him?
    Why say he does not respond to people’s complaints?
14 For God speaks again and again,
    though people do not recognize it.
15 He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night,
    when deep sleep falls on people
    as they lie in their beds.
16 He whispers in their ears
    and terrifies them with warnings.
17 He makes them turn from doing wrong;
    he keeps them from pride.
18 He protects them from the grave,
    from crossing over the river of death.
19 “Or God disciplines people with pain on their sickbeds,
    with ceaseless aching in their bones.
20 They lose their appetite
    for even the most delicious food.
21 Their flesh wastes away,
    and their bones stick out.
22 They are at death’s door;
    the angels of death wait for them.
23 “But if an angel from heaven appears—
    a special messenger to intercede for a person
    and declare that he is upright—
24 he will be gracious and say,
‘Rescue him from the grave,
    for I have found a ransom for his life.’
25 Then his body will become as healthy as a child’s,
    firm and youthful again.
26 When he prays to God,
    he will be accepted.
And God will receive him with joy
    and restore him to good standing.
27 He will declare to his friends,
‘I sinned and twisted the truth,
    but it was not worth it.[a]
28 God rescued me from the grave,
    and now my life is filled with light.’
29 “Yes, God does these things
    again and again for people.
30 He rescues them from the grave
    so they may enjoy the light of life.
31 Mark this well, Job. Listen to me,
    for I have more to say.
32 But if you have anything to say, go ahead.
    Speak, for I am anxious to see you justified.
33 But if not, then listen to me.
    Keep silent and I will teach you wisdom!”

Love,

Jonathan

Universal

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“When you make universal choices and decisions based on God’s Intellect, the meaning of your life transcends time, space, and personal comprehension for the fruit, seeds, and work you sow and reap.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Deep

Deep in the mind of God lies your destiny, to which there is no end to your soul.  It’s resting place dwells therein, with your fate in your own hands.  Just because God knows your fate does not negate your responsibility to choose and navigate your lifestyle towards Heaven or Hell.  You are at the helm of your own ship and the direction you set sail into deep waters.

Into The Shed

Meditate, ponder, muse, study, ready, and pray about your end game with God.  Are your choices Universally Sound by God’s Biblical Standards or did you follow something else that is a fraud, like your own imagination?  God is smart enough to help you find solutions to your problems so go into His Shed and find them.

Humility

Get rid of your pride so that the humility, honesty, and discipline that is needed for you to submit to God’s plan of action in your faith will work out.  You will grow into a heavenly tree, based on your obedience and not your talent, good looks, intellect, or luck.  When you stick to God’s Facts, you will dwell deep into the shed of God’s Universe for entering Heavenly Places Forever.
Today’s Question
Did you extract God’s message, memo, and intentions for your life to share with the world or is your life a joke, kidding around with the devil and his tricks of sin?

Job 34 

Elihu Accuses Job of Arrogance

34 Then Elihu said:
“Listen to me, you wise men.
    Pay attention, you who have knowledge.
Job said, ‘The ear tests the words it hears
    just as the mouth distinguishes between foods.’
So let us discern for ourselves what is right;
    let us learn together what is good.
For Job also said, ‘I am innocent,
    but God has taken away my rights.
I am innocent, but they call me a liar.
    My suffering is incurable, though I have not sinned.’
“Tell me, has there ever been a man like Job,
    with his thirst for irreverent talk?
He chooses evil people as companions.
    He spends his time with wicked men.
He has even said, ‘Why waste time
    trying to please God?’
10 “Listen to me, you who have understanding.
    Everyone knows that God doesn’t sin!
    The Almighty can do no wrong.
11 He repays people according to their deeds.
    He treats people as they deserve.
12 Truly, God will not do wrong.
    The Almighty will not twist justice.
13 Did someone else put the world in his care?
    Who set the whole world in place?
14 If God were to take back his spirit
    and withdraw his breath,
15 all life would cease,
    and humanity would turn again to dust.
16 “Now listen to me if you are wise.
    Pay attention to what I say.
17 Could God govern if he hated justice?
    Are you going to condemn the almighty judge?
18 For he says to kings, ‘You are wicked,’
    and to nobles, ‘You are unjust.’
19 He doesn’t care how great a person may be,
    and he pays no more attention to the rich than to the poor.
    He made them all.
20 In a moment they die.
    In the middle of the night they pass away;
    the mighty are removed without human hand.
21 “For God watches how people live;
    he sees everything they do.
22 No darkness is thick enough
    to hide the wicked from his eyes.
23 We don’t set the time
    when we will come before God in judgment.
24 He brings the mighty to ruin without asking anyone,
    and he sets up others in their place.
25 He knows what they do,
    and in the night he overturns and destroys them.
26 He strikes them down because they are wicked,
    doing it openly for all to see.
27 For they turned away from following him.
    They have no respect for any of his ways.
28 They cause the poor to cry out, catching God’s attention.
    He hears the cries of the needy.
29 But if he chooses to remain quiet,
    who can criticize him?
When he hides his face, no one can find him,
    whether an individual or a nation.
30 He prevents the godless from ruling
    so they cannot be a snare to the people.
31 “Why don’t people say to God, ‘I have sinned,
    but I will sin no more’?
32 Or ‘I don’t know what evil I have done—tell me.
    If I have done wrong, I will stop at once’?
33 “Must God tailor his justice to your demands?
    But you have rejected him!
The choice is yours, not mine.
    Go ahead, share your wisdom with us.
34 After all, bright people will tell me,
    and wise people will hear me say,
35 ‘Job speaks out of ignorance;
    his words lack insight.’
36 Job, you deserve the maximum penalty
    for the wicked way you have talked.
37 For you have added rebellion to your sin;
    you show no respect,
    and you speak many angry words against God.”
 

Love,

Jonathan
