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

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

One Day

balloons-892806_1920.jpgHi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Doing the work of faith one day a year is not good enough, because God will hold you accountable for the 365 days in a year to judge what you have done.” ~  Jon Barnes

About

God is not about to throw out his math skills of accountability and assessment of your character, nature, and measure of faith in your personal work and walk with God during your lifetime.  Your repentance and connection to God with the Blood of Christ will teach you how to remain holy and separated unto God.  However, it only takes a second for you to choose and cut that tie and bond with God, based on your choice and wicked behavior.

Amount

You must keep your lamp full with the Spirit of God in your heart and life so that your light keeps shining now and forever.  This unlimited amount of love that God has supernaturally given you will sustain you in all times if you are a true believer.  You will run your race with all that you have to prove your loyalty to God.  He will sustain, teach, and test you each day and God’s training is thorough.

Account

God’s accounting on your life is none of my business. God’s accounting in my life is none of your business.  His judgment will condemn or correspond to your faith walk, facts, and records to account for your life.  One Day, you will be seen as you are and God will decide if you are worthy.  Strive to be worthy at all times and humble your causes into the Hands of God and His Righteousness.
Today’s Question
Will The Blood of Christ save you, if you are a habitual thief, liar, cheater, and an evil person, pretending to be a true Christian or do you really think God is as stupid as you are?

Job 32 

Elihu Responds to Job’s Friends

32 Job’s three friends refused to reply further to him because he kept insisting on his innocence.
Then Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite, of the clan of Ram, became angry. He was angry because Job refused to admit that he had sinned and that God was right in punishing him. He was also angry with Job’s three friends, for they made God[a]appear to be wrong by their inability to answer Job’s arguments. Elihu had waited for the others to speak to Job because they were older than he. But when he saw that they had no further reply, he spoke out angrily. Elihu son of Barakel the Buzite said,
“I am young and you are old,
    so I held back from telling you what I think.
I thought, ‘Those who are older should speak,
    for wisdom comes with age.’
But there is a spirit[b] within people,
    the breath of the Almighty within them,
    that makes them intelligent.
Sometimes the elders are not wise.
    Sometimes the aged do not understand justice.
10 So listen to me,
    and let me tell you what I think.
11 “I have waited all this time,
    listening very carefully to your arguments,
    listening to you grope for words.
12 I have listened,
    but not one of you has refuted Job
    or answered his arguments.
13 And don’t tell me, ‘He is too wise for us.
    Only God can convince him.’
14 If Job had been arguing with me,
    I would not answer with your kind of logic!
15 You sit there baffled,
    with nothing more to say.
16 Should I continue to wait, now that you are silent?
    Must I also remain silent?
17 No, I will say my piece.
    I will speak my mind.
18 For I am full of pent-up words,
    and the spirit within me urges me on.
19 I am like a cask of wine without a vent,
    like a new wineskin ready to burst!
20 I must speak to find relief,
    so let me give my answers.
21 I won’t play favorites
    or try to flatter anyone.
22 For if I tried flattery,
    my Creator would soon destroy me.

Love,

Jonathan

Lane

autumn-3186876_1920
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Get out of the dumb lane by not copying what other people say and do: Copy what God says and does.” ~ Jon Barnes

God

God doesn’t have any lanes for you to travel in, but He has commandments of obedience, forgiveness, truth, faith, work, and trust.  Believe that God will reward your honest efforts of love, grace, mercy, and purpose in Him and you will continue to follow the Path of Righteousness that God sets for you.

Connect

Follow and study how ants communicate, move around, and work together to improve each other’s standing.  They don’t do it alone or in isolation.  The connection is two by two and the truth is quickly carried to the next one without changing the message.  There is no need to fight, argue, and hold onto hurtful feelings from the past or present.  Forgive, move, and work like the ant and God’s message of forgiveness will live in your heart.

Formulate

This is not a lane but a pattern God has set and instructs us from the readings in His Bible to understand how we should move, think, learn, grow, and know how to share love, truth, and justice in our daily lifestyle.  Stop using dumb phases that you hear from people and use bible stories to communicate like ants and God will fix and bless your mess with love, forgiveness, wisdom, and leadership of how ants operate.
Today’s Question
Did you forget God’s message by limiting God’s power with your lane of hate, control, unforgiveness, and disobedience?  ~  Jon Barnes

 

Job 31 

Job’s Final Protest of Innocence

31 “I made a covenant with my eyes
    not to look with lust at a young woman.
For what has God above chosen for us?
    What is our inheritance from the Almighty on high?
Isn’t it calamity for the wicked
    and misfortune for those who do evil?
Doesn’t he see everything I do
    and every step I take?
“Have I lied to anyone
    or deceived anyone?
Let God weigh me on the scales of justice,
    for he knows my integrity.
If I have strayed from his pathway,
    or if my heart has lusted for what my eyes have seen,
    or if I am guilty of any other sin,
then let someone else eat the crops I have planted.
    Let all that I have planted be uprooted.
“If my heart has been seduced by a woman,
    or if I have lusted for my neighbor’s wife,
10 then let my wife serve[a] another man;
    let other men sleep with her.
11 For lust is a shameful sin,
    a crime that should be punished.
12 It is a fire that burns all the way to hell.[b]
    It would wipe out everything I own.
13 “If I have been unfair to my male or female servants
    when they brought their complaints to me,
14 how could I face God?
    What could I say when he questioned me?
15 For God created both me and my servants.
    He created us both in the womb.
16 “Have I refused to help the poor,
    or crushed the hopes of widows?
17 Have I been stingy with my food
    and refused to share it with orphans?
18 No, from childhood I have cared for orphans like a father,
    and all my life I have cared for widows.
19 Whenever I saw the homeless without clothes
    and the needy with nothing to wear,
20 did they not praise me
    for providing wool clothing to keep them warm?
21 “If I raised my hand against an orphan,
    knowing the judges would take my side,
22 then let my shoulder be wrenched out of place!
    Let my arm be torn from its socket!
23 That would be better than facing God’s judgment.
    For if the majesty of God opposes me, what hope is there?
24 “Have I put my trust in money
    or felt secure because of my gold?
25 Have I gloated about my wealth
    and all that I own?
26 “Have I looked at the sun shining in the skies,
    or the moon walking down its silver pathway,
27 and been secretly enticed in my heart
    to throw kisses at them in worship?
28 If so, I should be punished by the judges,
    for it would mean I had denied the God of heaven.
29 “Have I ever rejoiced when disaster struck my enemies,
    or become excited when harm came their way?
30 No, I have never sinned by cursing anyone
    or by asking for revenge.
31 “My servants have never said,
    ‘He let others go hungry.’
32 I have never turned away a stranger
    but have opened my doors to everyone.
33 “Have I tried to hide my sins like other people do,
    concealing my guilt in my heart?
34 Have I feared the crowd
    or the contempt of the masses,
    so that I kept quiet and stayed indoors?
35 “If only someone would listen to me!
    Look, I will sign my name to my defense.
Let the Almighty answer me.
    Let my accuser write out the charges against me.
36 I would face the accusation proudly.
    I would wear it like a crown.
37 For I would tell him exactly what I have done.
    I would come before him like a prince.
38 “If my land accuses me
    and all its furrows cry out together,
39 or if I have stolen its crops
    or murdered its owners,
40 then let thistles grow on that land instead of wheat,
    and weeds instead of barley.”
Job’s words are ended.
Love,
Jonathan

Job 30

Job Speaks of His Anguish

30 “But now I am mocked by people younger than I,
    by young men whose fathers are not worthy to run with my sheepdogs.
A lot of good they are to me—
    those worn-out wretches!
They are gaunt from poverty and hunger.
    They claw the dry ground in desolate wastelands.
They pluck wild greens from among the bushes
    and eat from the roots of broom trees.
They are driven from human society,
    and people shout at them as if they were thieves.
So now they live in frightening ravines,
    in caves and among the rocks.
They sound like animals howling among the bushes,
    huddled together beneath the nettles.
They are nameless fools,
    outcasts from society.
“And now they mock me with vulgar songs!
    They taunt me!
10 They despise me and won’t come near me,
    except to spit in my face.
11 For God has cut my bowstring.
    He has humbled me,
    so they have thrown off all restraint.
12 These outcasts oppose me to my face.
    They send me sprawling
    and lay traps in my path.
13 They block my road
    and do everything they can to destroy me.
They know I have no one to help me.
14     They come at me from all directions.
They jump on me when I am down.
15     I live in terror now.
My honor has blown away in the wind,
    and my prosperity has vanished like a cloud.
16 “And now my life seeps away.
    Depression haunts my days.
17 At night my bones are filled with pain,
    which gnaws at me relentlessly.
18 With a strong hand, God grabs my shirt.[a]
    He grips me by the collar of my coat.
19 He has thrown me into the mud.
    I’m nothing more than dust and ashes.
20 “I cry to you, O God, but you don’t answer.
    I stand before you, but you don’t even look.
21 You have become cruel toward me.
    You use your power to persecute me.
22 You throw me into the whirlwind
    and destroy me in the storm.
23 And I know you are sending me to my death—
    the destination of all who live.
24 “Surely no one would turn against the needy
    when they cry for help in their trouble.
25 Did I not weep for those in trouble?
    Was I not deeply grieved for the needy?
26 So I looked for good, but evil came instead.
    I waited for the light, but darkness fell.
27 My heart is troubled and restless.
    Days of suffering torment me.
28 I walk in gloom, without sunlight.
    I stand in the public square and cry for help.
29 Instead, I am considered a brother to jackals
    and a companion to owls.
30 My skin has turned dark,
    and my bones burn with fever.
31 My harp plays sad music,
    and my flute accompanies those who weep.
 
Love,
 
Jonathan

Substitute

flower-888401_1920
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Substitute your negative thinking about problems, depression, fear, selfish vanity, and evil pride with good thoughts, The Lord’s Prayer, good solutions, Bible stories, faith, and the good works you will do for God.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Respectfully

Respect and embrace God’s ways of doing business and thinking outside the box, the lane, and chains of slavery, bondage, hopelessness, and fear.  Use the liberty of God’s Love to battle addiction, pornography, waste, lust, selfishness, adultery, fornication, and wicked behavior.  Remain old fashioned, obedient, and set in God’s Eyes of Favor, by replacing evil with good.

Set

Set your standards of ideas, thoughts, patterns, stories, words, faith, and works with God’s vision for what is to come, because you are meditating, praying, and doing what God is asking you to do.  Your solutions are flawed, stupid, and meaningless when you are knowingly or unknowingly partnered with the devil, a cheap substitute.  Don’t use your fake ideas, but respectfully embrace and substitute your thoughts, ideas, and feeling with what God gives you. 

Up

Give up your old, dumb, tired, evil, wicked, ways that seem right to you, because it is not working, as you beat your head up against the wall day after day.  Lift up your head and hands to God for guidance, opportunity, wisdom, love, forgiveness, repentance, and integrity in what you are about to do.  You will feel so much better by giving up your selfish additions, attitudes, cravings, miscommunications, and misunderstandings when you replace your mess with God’s Best Thoughts!
Today’s Question
Are you so wise in your own thinking to not see what God is trying to fix in your own mind?

Job 29

Job Speaks of His Former Blessings

29 Job continued speaking:
“I long for the years gone by
    when God took care of me,
when he lit up the way before me
    and I walked safely through the darkness.
When I was in my prime,
    God’s friendship was felt in my home.
The Almighty was still with me,
    and my children were around me.
My steps were awash in cream,
    and the rocks gushed olive oil for me.
“Those were the days when I went to the city gate
    and took my place among the honored leaders.
The young stepped aside when they saw me,
    and even the aged rose in respect at my coming.
The princes stood in silence
    and put their hands over their mouths.
10 The highest officials of the city stood quietly,
    holding their tongues in respect.
11 “All who heard me praised me.
    All who saw me spoke well of me.
12 For I assisted the poor in their need
    and the orphans who required help.
13 I helped those without hope, and they blessed me.
    And I caused the widows’ hearts to sing for joy.
14 Everything I did was honest.
    Righteousness covered me like a robe,
    and I wore justice like a turban.
15 I served as eyes for the blind
    and feet for the lame.
16 I was a father to the poor
    and assisted strangers who needed help.
17 I broke the jaws of godless oppressors
    and plucked their victims from their teeth.
18 “I thought, ‘Surely I will die surrounded by my family
    after a long, good life.[a]
19 For I am like a tree whose roots reach the water,
    whose branches are refreshed with the dew.
20 New honors are constantly bestowed on me,
    and my strength is continually renewed.’
21 “Everyone listened to my advice.
    They were silent as they waited for me to speak.
22 And after I spoke, they had nothing to add,
    for my counsel satisfied them.
23 They longed for me to speak as people long for rain.
    They drank my words like a refreshing spring rain.
24 When they were discouraged, I smiled at them.
    My look of approval was precious to them.
25 Like a chief, I told them what to do.
    I lived like a king among his troops
    and comforted those who mourned.

Love,

Jonathan
