“When we pray, study, and follow God’s commandments and lifestyle, The Blood of Christ covers, washes, and keeps us  clean so that our character looks impeccable since our faith and works are connected to Jesus and the Will of God.” ~ Jon Barnes

Repugnance

God is never happy about our disobedient, inconsistent, or contradictory behavior, which is the opposite of His loving lifestyle that Christians are supposed to represent. It is extremely distasteful and unpleasant for Him to watch so many choose the path of unrighteousness, sin, lust, and greed over truth, justice, and love. God’s heart breaks just like ours when children are lost and have gone astray!

Honestly

Telling people the truth, immediately, will give them the power to choose the best, correct, and most helpful solution to their problems. Bad information does the opposite. Get to the point and you can still be nice. Then, you must get back to your own work so that others can work for themselves to figure out their own problems. God points us in the right direction, but we must take the steps to get to the destination of LOVE.

Destination

See that your GPS is still set to the proper destination by checking your navigational system, maps, compass, cell phone, or computer with God’s holy bible map. God’s navigations system is impeccable, infallible, and reliable so that you can never get lost. Let the bible do to the talking, leading, and directing of your steps and begin to think, act, and do what God has taught us from His Commandments and lifecycle.
Today’s Question
Did you know that God is perfect and He cannot lie, so you should listen to Him and do your work?

Joshua 17 

17 This was the allotment for the tribe of Manasseh as Joseph’s firstborn, that is, for Makir, Manasseh’s firstborn. Makir was the ancestor of the Gileadites, who had received Gilead and Bashan because the Makirites were great soldiers. So this allotment was for the rest of the people of Manasseh—the clans of Abiezer, Helek, Asriel, Shechem, Hepher and Shemida. These are the other male descendants of Manasseh son of Joseph by their clans.
Now Zelophehad son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Makir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons but only daughters, whose names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milkah and Tirzah. They went to Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the leaders and said, “The Lord commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our relatives.” So Joshua gave them an inheritance along with the brothers of their father, according to the Lord’s command. Manasseh’s share consisted of ten tracts of land besides Gilead and Bashan east of the Jordan, because the daughters of the tribe of Manasseh received an inheritance among the sons. The land of Gilead belonged to the rest of the descendants of Manasseh.
The territory of Manasseh extended from Asher to Mikmethath east of Shechem. The boundary ran southward from there to include the people living at En Tappuah. (Manasseh had the land of Tappuah, but Tappuah itself, on the boundary of Manasseh, belonged to the Ephraimites.) Then the boundary continued south to the Kanah Ravine. There were towns belonging to Ephraim lying among the towns of Manasseh, but the boundary of Manasseh was the northern side of the ravine and ended at the Mediterranean Sea. 10 On the south the land belonged to Ephraim, on the north to Manasseh. The territory of Manasseh reached the Mediterranean Sea and bordered Asher on the north and Issachar on the east.
11 Within Issachar and Asher, Manasseh also had Beth Shan, Ibleam and the people of Dor, Endor, Taanach and Megiddo, together with their surrounding settlements (the third in the list is Naphoth[a]).
12 Yet the Manassites were not able to occupy these towns, for the Canaanites were determined to live in that region. 13 However, when the Israelites grew stronger, they subjected the Canaanites to forced labor but did not drive them out completely.
14 The people of Joseph said to Joshua, “Why have you given us only one allotment and one portion for an inheritance? We are a numerous people, and the Lord has blessed us abundantly.”
15 “If you are so numerous,” Joshua answered, “and if the hill country of Ephraim is too small for you, go up into the forest and clear land for yourselves there in the land of the Perizzites and Rephaites.”
16 The people of Joseph replied, “The hill country is not enough for us, and all the Canaanites who live in the plain have chariots fitted with iron, both those in Beth Shan and its settlements and those in the Valley of Jezreel.”
17 But Joshua said to the tribes of Joseph—to Ephraim and Manasseh—“You are numerous and very powerful. You will have not only one allotment 18 but the forested hill country as well. Clear it, and its farthest limits will be yours; though the Canaanites have chariots fitted with iron and though they are strong, you can drive them out.”
Love,
Jonathan

Mentorship Waves

Two People Having A Conversation
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“God’s wisdom teaches you how to stay focused on doing the best job with your skill set and to pass the baton to qualified people, who have proven themselves with good character, loyalty, honesty, and integrity.” ~ Jon Barnes

Mentor Minded

Grandparents and parents are the best mentors who can pour much need knowledge, wisdom, and experience into the minds of generations to come. Teachers, preachers, professionals, family, and friends can also be a great source of information when you can verify their character and labor of Godly love. All labor is not equal so you must select the Godly Labor Choices in life for yourself. Mentor minds have lived long enough to live and show the ways of God with excellence, love, grace, mercy, patience, long-suffering, and humility, in a way that is fun, interesting, engaging, realistic, inspiring, and honest.
 

Hired As

 
God has hired you with the breath of life to live, love, help, and share this mento mind with all people so that God’s plan is revealed, souls are saved, and good fights evil. Your light kills evil each day that you serve God in spirit and truth, doing the work of faith that you have read about in your bibles. You cannot do what you have not read and don’t know. Mentors point to Jesus and workers study to finish the job of sharing, recruiting, monitoring, servicing, helping, and honoring God. You have been hired to learn, share, do, and teach, display God’s information in your language, lifestyle, faith, and work. 
 

Fired As

 
Your honest work for God is without repentance and it is up to individuals to use God’s information for themselves since they are responsible for doing their own homework, daily studies, and tests. We are all without excuse in doing the proper amount of labor for the job to balance each day with the right amount of ingredients for success. It is better to be fired to improve on the next job than to go along with the program headed straight for hell, because you are an unqualified, wicked, pathological, liar. Give honest evaluations and share the truth in love and Mentorship Waves with God’s Ways.
 
Today’s Question
 
Is God waving at you to Mentor your family in Spirit and in Truth or are you living a life full of evil lies?

Numbers 26

The Second Registration of Israel’s Troops

26 After the plague had ended,[a] the Lord said to Moses and to Eleazar son of Aaron the priest, “From the whole community of Israel, record the names of all the warriors by their families. List all the men twenty years old or older who are able to go to war.”
So there on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho, Moses and Eleazar the priest issued these instructions to the leaders of Israel: “List all the men of Israel twenty years old and older, just as the Lord commanded Moses.”
This is the record of all the descendants of Israel who came out of Egypt.

These were the clans of Reuben. Their registered troops numbered 43,730.
Pallu was the ancestor of Eliab, and Eliab was the father of Nemuel, Dathan, and Abiram. This Dathan and Abiram are the same community leaders who conspired with Korah against Moses and Aaron, rebelling against the Lord. 10 But the earth opened up its mouth and swallowed them with Korah, and fire devoured 250 of their followers. This served as a warning to the entire nation of Israel. 11 However, the sons of Korah did not die that day.

31 The Asrielites, named after their ancestor Asriel.
The Shechemites, named after their ancestor Shechem.
32 The Shemidaites, named after their ancestor Shemida.
The Hepherites, named after their ancestor Hepher.
33 (One of Hepher’s descendants, Zelophehad, had no sons, but his daughters’ names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.)
34 These were the clans of Manasseh. Their registered troops numbered 52,700.

37 These were the clans of Ephraim. Their registered troops numbered 32,500.
These clans of Manasseh and Ephraim were all descendants of Joseph.

43 These were the Shuhamite clans of Dan. Their registered troops numbered 64,400.

The Tribe of Asher

44 These were the clans descended from the sons of Asher:
The Imnite clan, named after their ancestor Imnah.
The Ishvite clan, named after their ancestor Ishvi.
The Beriite clan, named after their ancestor Beriah.
45 These were the subclans descended from the Beriites:
The Heberites, named after their ancestor Heber.
The Malkielites, named after their ancestor Malkiel.
46 Asher also had a daughter named Serah.
47 These were the clans of Asher. Their registered troops numbered 53,400.

49 The Jezerite clan, named after their ancestor Jezer.
The Shillemite clan, named after their ancestor Shillem.
50 These were the clans of Naphtali. Their registered troops numbered 45,400.

Results of the Registration

51 In summary, the registered troops of all Israel numbered 601,730.
52 Then the Lord said to Moses, 53 “Divide the land among the tribes, and distribute the grants of land in proportion to the tribes’ populations, as indicated by the number of names on the list. 54 Give the larger tribes more land and the smaller tribes less land, each group receiving a grant in proportion to the size of its population. 55 But you must assign the land by lot, and give land to each ancestral tribe according to the number of names on the list. 56 Each grant of land must be assigned by lot among the larger and smaller tribal groups.”

The Tribe of Levi

57 This is the record of the Levites who were counted according to their clans:
The Gershonite clan, named after their ancestor Gershon.
The Kohathite clan, named after their ancestor Kohath.
The Merarite clan, named after their ancestor Merari.
58 The Libnites, the Hebronites, the Mahlites, the Mushites, and the Korahites were all subclans of the Levites.
Now Kohath was the ancestor of Amram, 59 and Amram’s wife was named Jochebed. She also was a descendant of Levi, born among the Levites in the land of Egypt. Amram and Jochebed became the parents of Aaron, Moses, and their sister, Miriam. 60 To Aaron were born Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 61 But Nadab and Abihu died when they burned before the Lordthe wrong kind of fire, different than he had commanded.
62 The men from the Levite clans who were one month old or older numbered 23,000. But the Levites were not included in the registration of the rest of the people of Israel because they were not given an allotment of land when it was divided among the Israelites.
63 So these are the results of the registration of the people of Israel as conducted by Moses and Eleazar the priest on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.64 Not one person on this list had been among those listed in the previous registration taken by Moses and Aaron in the wilderness of Sinai. 65 For the Lord had said of them, “They will all die in the wilderness.” Not one of them survived except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.

Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Reach and embrace your adjustments and improvements with God’s standards so that you connect with a variety of people and shining your holy light of truth from your biblically inspired lifestyle.”   ~ Jon Barnes

Consistent

Living with consistent standards from God and His Bible Stories helps us to understand faith, belief, fairness, and equity in copying God’s lifestyle. We naturally and consistently grow daily in Him as we study, read, pray, reach, and embrace God’s plans for our lives, while still being content. When the appropriate changes and new orders arrive, we are delighted that God gives us plans for our future with amazing outcomes and blessings to all the people we meet. We consistently reap what we sow and your fruit is always Good by following God’s farming techniques.

Reach 

Reach for your dreams and goals in the Lord as you plan, prepare, and pray your way into thanksgiving, love, and hope with your work for God. Work is not always easy, but it is easy to stay on track when your focus is what God wants and not what you want. Reach to understand that wanting what God wants gives you the winning hand in your efforts.  Losing with character, dignity, grace, and honesty is also a win in God’s Book. You learn a lot by losing, reaching, trying, and repeating tests until you pass them. Teach yourself to retake your test to pass it and learn from your mistakes.

Embrace

Embrace what it takes to endure your race by listening to God the first time to cross the permanent finish line. Stop trying to reach for the devil, running in the opposite direction with your own ideas of pride, lust, and greedy ambitions. See the big picture of help, hopes, and honor within your choices. Stand firm in your conviction for God and trust His Will for your life. Relax as you reach for eternity, growing in God’s Grace.

Numbers 24 NLT

24 By now Balaam realized that the Lord was determined to bless Israel, so he did not resort to divination as before. Instead, he turned and looked out toward the wilderness, where he saw the people of Israel camped, tribe by tribe. Then the Spirit of God came upon him, and this is the message he delivered:
“This is the message of Balaam son of Beor,
    the message of the man whose eyes see clearly,
the message of one who hears the words of God,
    who sees a vision from the Almighty,
    who bows down with eyes wide open:
How beautiful are your tents, O Jacob;
    how lovely are your homes, O Israel!
They spread before me like palm groves,[a]
    like gardens by the riverside.
They are like tall trees planted by the Lord,
    like cedars beside the waters.
Water will flow from their buckets;
    their offspring have all they need.
Their king will be greater than Agag;
    their kingdom will be exalted.
God brought them out of Egypt;
    for them he is as strong as a wild ox.
He devours all the nations that oppose him,
    breaking their bones in pieces,
    shooting them with arrows.
Like a lion, Israel crouches and lies down;
    like a lioness, who dares to arouse her?
Blessed is everyone who blesses you, O Israel,
    and cursed is everyone who curses you.”
10 King Balak flew into a rage against Balaam. He angrily clapped his hands and shouted, “I called you to curse my enemies! Instead, you have blessed them three times. 11 Now get out of here! Go back home! I promised to reward you richly, but the Lord has kept you from your reward.”
12 Balaam told Balak, “Don’t you remember what I told your messengers? I said, 13 ‘Even if Balak were to give me his palace filled with silver and gold, I would be powerless to do anything against the will of the Lord.’ I told you that I could say only what the Lord says! 14 Now I am returning to my own people. But first let me tell you what the Israelites will do to your people in the future.”

Balaam’s Final Messages

15 This is the message Balaam delivered:
“This is the message of Balaam son of Beor,
    the message of the man whose eyes see clearly,
16 the message of one who hears the words of God,
    who has knowledge from the Most High,
who sees a vision from the Almighty,
    who bows down with eyes wide open:
17 I see him, but not here and now.
    I perceive him, but far in the distant future.
A star will rise from Jacob;
    a scepter will emerge from Israel.
It will crush the heads of Moab’s people,
    cracking the skulls[b] of the people of Sheth.
18 Edom will be taken over,
    and Seir, its enemy, will be conquered,
    while Israel marches on in triumph.
19 A ruler will rise in Jacob
    who will destroy the survivors of Ir.”
20 Then Balaam looked over toward the people of Amalek and delivered this message:
“Amalek was the greatest of nations,
    but its destiny is destruction!”
21 Then he looked over toward the Kenites and delivered this message:
“Your home is secure;
    your nest is set in the rocks.
22 But the Kenites will be destroyed
    when Assyria[c] takes you captive.”
23 Balaam concluded his messages by saying:
“Alas, who can survive
    unless God has willed it?
24 Ships will come from the coasts of Cyprus[d];
    they will oppress Assyria and afflict Eber,
    but they, too, will be utterly destroyed.”
25 Then Balaam left and returned home, and Balak also went on his way.
Love, 
Jonathan

Adjustments

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“As I wake up each day to pray and think of all the wonderful possibilities life has to offer, God allows us to have a path to follow and to make adjustments along the way.” ~ Jon Barnes

Thankful

I appreciate not being perfect and right all of the time and my thoughts, words, works, and deeds reflect my natural human condition. Knowing this puts a smile on my face, helps me to easily repent, adjust and try a better or perhaps modified solution for the task. If God wants you to do something, just do it. It is hard to be thankful and happy when you are mad and bitter while walking your path with God and making your adjustments. Complete the path of your adjustments.

Happy

Be happy that you have another day to make new adjustments, which should add to your thankfulness and happiness in your life.  Clean motives make for clear thinking just as clutter can cloud your judgment with distractions of disobedience. I choose to be happy because I will always adjust my thought and ways to follow and admire the new things that God will show and teach me.  will also learn many new things from people all around me, using books, technology, stories, news, and other content to weigh in with God’s Commandments.

Content

I am content with my content of good works, thoughts, studies, and prayers when I work from my closet of peace, worship, and thanksgiving unto God. I must be made ready before I can receive my blessings early in the day before I begin my work. Less movement is more beneficial and practical when each step is accurate. Otherwise, new adjustments will be made and the path will be delayed in reaching your new destination and adjustment. Polish your content and be content with your happiness and thankfulness unto God, because He will show you His point of views, as you learn to obey and adjust your thinking and actions to reflect God’s Character.
Today’s Question
Is the content of your life full of peace, happiness, and joy or are you content with not learning from your mistakes, forgetting to make daily adjustments?

Balak Sends for Balaam

22 Then the people of Israel traveled to the plains of Moab and camped east of the Jordan River, across from Jericho. Balak son of Zippor, the Moabite king, had seen everything the Israelites did to the Amorites. And when the people of Moab saw how many Israelites there were, they were terrified. The king of Moab said to the elders of Midian, “This mob will devour everything in sight, like an ox devours grass in the field!”
So Balak, king of Moab, sent messengers to call Balaam son of Beor, who was living in his native land of Pethor[a] near the Euphrates River.[b] His message said:
“Look, a vast horde of people has arrived from Egypt. They cover the face of the earth and are threatening me. Please come and curse these people for me because they are too powerful for me. Then perhaps I will be able to conquer them and drive them from the land. I know that blessings fall on any people you bless, and curses fall on people you curse.”
Balak’s messengers, who were elders of Moab and Midian, set out with money to pay Balaam to place a curse upon Israel.[c] They went to Balaam and delivered Balak’s message to him. “Stay here overnight,” Balaam said. “In the morning I will tell you whatever the Lord directs me to say.” So the officials from Moab stayed there with Balaam.
That night God came to Balaam and asked him, “Who are these men visiting you?”
10 Balaam said to God, “Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab, has sent me this message: 11 ‘Look, a vast horde of people has arrived from Egypt, and they cover the face of the earth. Come and curse these people for me. Then perhaps I will be able to stand up to them and drive them from the land.’”
12 But God told Balaam, “Do not go with them. You are not to curse these people, for they have been blessed!”
13 The next morning Balaam got up and told Balak’s officials, “Go on home! The Lord will not let me go with you.”
14 So the Moabite officials returned to King Balak and reported, “Balaam refused to come with us.” 15 Then Balak tried again. This time he sent a larger number of even more distinguished officials than those he had sent the first time. 16 They went to Balaam and delivered this message to him:
“This is what Balak son of Zippor says: Please don’t let anything stop you from coming to help me. 17 I will pay you very well and do whatever you tell me. Just come and curse these people for me!”
18 But Balaam responded to Balak’s messengers, “Even if Balak were to give me his palace filled with silver and gold, I would be powerless to do anything against the will of the Lord my God. 19 But stay here one more night, and I will see if the Lord has anything else to say to me.”
20 That night God came to Balaam and told him, “Since these men have come for you, get up and go with them. But do only what I tell you to do.”

Balaam and His Donkey

21 So the next morning Balaam got up, saddled his donkey, and started off with the Moabite officials. 22 But God was angry that Balaam was going, so he sent the angel of the Lord to stand in the road to block his way. As Balaam and two servants were riding along, 23 Balaam’s donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand. The donkey bolted off the road into a field, but Balaam beat it and turned it back onto the road. 24 Then the angel of the Lord stood at a place where the road narrowed between two vineyard walls.25 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it tried to squeeze by and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall. So Balaam beat the donkey again. 26 Then the angel of the Lord moved farther down the road and stood in a place too narrow for the donkey to get by at all. 27 This time when the donkey saw the angel, it lay down under Balaam. In a fit of rage Balaam beat the animal again with his staff.
28 Then the Lord gave the donkey the ability to speak. “What have I done to you that deserves your beating me three times?” it asked Balaam.
29 “You have made me look like a fool!” Balaam shouted. “If I had a sword with me, I would kill you!”
30 “But I am the same donkey you have ridden all your life,” the donkey answered. “Have I ever done anything like this before?”
“No,” Balaam admitted.
31 Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lordstanding in the roadway with a drawn sword in his hand. Balaam bowed his head and fell face down on the ground before him.
32 “Why did you beat your donkey those three times?” the angel of the Lorddemanded. “Look, I have come to block your way because you are stubbornly resisting me. 33 Three times the donkey saw me and shied away; otherwise, I would certainly have killed you by now and spared the donkey.”
34 Then Balaam confessed to the angel of the Lord, “I have sinned. I didn’t realize you were standing in the road to block my way. I will return home if you are against my going.”
35 But the angel of the Lord told Balaam, “Go with these men, but say only what I tell you to say.” So Balaam went on with Balak’s officials. 36 When King Balak heard that Balaam was on the way, he went out to meet him at a Moabite town on the Arnon River at the farthest border of his land.
37 “Didn’t I send you an urgent invitation? Why didn’t you come right away?” Balak asked Balaam. “Didn’t you believe me when I said I would reward you richly?”
38 Balaam replied, “Look, now I have come, but I have no power to say whatever I want. I will speak only the message that God puts in my mouth.” 39 Then Balaam accompanied Balak to Kiriath-huzoth, 40 where the king sacrificed cattle and sheep. He sent portions of the meat to Balaam and the officials who were with him. 41 The next morning Balak took Balaam up to Bamoth-baal. From there he could see some of the people of Israel spread out below him.

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Make new things happen that are good, from the mistakes of old, that you’ve learned from love’s journey, into your next page turn in life, with the Spirit of God.” ~ Jon Barnes

New Mistakes

New mistakes in our walk in love will be made, often times unintentionally. So, repent, forgive yourself and others, as we shine the light on our path to see the direction God wants us to travel in. Take notice of the gradual growth in people with good, experienced leadership, stories, and statistics to notice, compare, and contrast the lifestyles of the disciples and the characters in the bible. Which Character do you identify with and is your time well spent fixing your own identification papers, which are scanned by God’s Holy Spirit? Practice good habits and make fewer mistakes.

Identification

Your identification and picture passport of yourself is the process of working, defining and walking in the love languages and actions you must perform for God. You must seek out, identity, and Make this connection to get your passport, so that you may pass through customs at God’s Holy Airport! Your identity cannot be mistaken, exchanged, or stolen. It is with you at all times.  It is invisible until you open up your mouth. Your words and work identifies who you are each day, so share it with love, in every way. Your character and identification is one document in the sight of God, as he scans your life and records your deeds.

Assassination

Do not allow room for people to Make or spin character assassination plots onto your life because, you are too scared to confront and terminate your own sins and display your true motives to all people. The devil does not need any extra fuel for fire in hell and my job is to swim each day in God’s pool of living water to exercise, relax, and unwind. You can’t kill something that was already dead! So kill your ego, flesh, sin, arrogance, pride, lust, disrespectfulness, laziness, greediness, sorriness, and the likes and stay in the pool of repentance, love, worship, honor, praise, and good labor, that swims daily in love.
Today’s Question
Are you busy assassinating the character of others, while ignoring your own sorry character that is full of problems or are you taking that time to Make a new Character Identification, Make Over?

John 14

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me.My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Jesus the Way to the Father

Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know[b] my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority.Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[c] in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
22 Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”
23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. 30 I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, 31 but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.
Love,
Jonathan

Yourself

Hi Peeps,
Today’s quote
“In the Room and At The Gate, the only person you can blame is Yourself for doing or not doing a Good Job for God.”
~ Jon Barnes

Challenge Yourself

In life, many people spend time complaining, murmuring, fixing the problems of others, reading, watching, and doing everything but what God has planned for their lives.  I still struggle with this and laugh at myself for wasting precious time on doing so little, for Heaven’s Sake! When you walk into the room, be the One for God!  Why argue the mundane when you can focus on completing the sane commandments of love, and fulfill the Love Purpose in your lifestyle. Challenge yourself not to be bad, gossip company.

Respect Yourself

What you do for God is what you do for yourself.  When you walk into the Room, any Room, Keep this in mind.  Then your motives will become obvious enough to complete your assignments with respect to God and then yourself.  I cannot respect myself, if I don’t respect God first, before completing my work of love. RESPECT is what the word and work means to God and yourself, as you complete each little love job inside every little room you walk into, everywhere you Go.  Good Character and Graceful lips Go a long way.

Love Yourself

God does not change or waste His time on Hypocrites, because they love themselves and not God!  Many get this point wrong! Here is why: True Christians Love God first, by doing the work, word, and obeying the commandments and lifestyle, and then you can see and feel how much God loves you, which is what gives you the wisdom to love yourself (Your Soul) properly.  Time, money, schedule, assignments, play, rest, work, worship, and church time flow like daily bread and water from God, as a result.  Be yourself and be on task or blame yourself for not doing so. Use and love God’s new solutions.

Are you carrying and studying a lie from Satan’s Bible to look cute or are you daily using The Holy Bible for YOURSELF, doing God’s Work?

1 Corinthians 16New International Version (NIV)

The Collection for the Lord’s People

16 Now about the collection for the Lord’s people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem. If it seems advisable for me to go also, they will accompany me.

Personal Requests

After I go through Macedonia, I will come to you—for I will be going through Macedonia. Perhaps I will stay with you for a while, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go. For I do not want to see you now and make only a passing visit; I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost, because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.
10 When Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is carrying on the work of the Lord, just as I am. 11 No one, then, should treat him with contempt. Send him on his way in peace so that he may return to me. I am expecting him along with the brothers.
12 Now about our brother Apollos: I strongly urged him to go to you with the brothers. He was quite unwilling to go now, but he will go when he has the opportunity.
13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 14 Do everything in love.
15 You know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and they have devoted themselves to the service of the Lord’s people. I urge you, brothers and sisters, 16 to submit to such people and to everyone who joins in the work and labors at it. 17 I was glad when Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus arrived, because they have supplied what was lacking from you. 18 For they refreshed my spirit and yours also. Such men deserve recognition.

Final Greetings

19 The churches in the province of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Priscilla[a] greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house. 20 All the brothers and sisters here send you greetings. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
21 I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand.
22 If anyone does not love the Lord, let that person be cursed! Come, Lord[b]!
23 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. Amen.[c]

Love,

Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Faithfulness is a collected effort of christian people learning, living, inspiring, hoping, giving, and teaching each other God’s love and laws of faith and thanksgiving to all people with their lifestyle shining the light of God each day in truth and honest humility.” ~ Jon Barnes

Roman’s Forgiveness

Perhaps many of us would love to showcase and display our works and deeds to maximize visibility and inspire others, publicly.  However, God points to the secret closet where you should pray, give thanks, and do your most serious work for the Lord in secret, so that He can reward you openly. Let someone else toot your horn. Quietly give, love, forgive and share what you have and who you are so that God gets the credit, glory, and honor for improving your life and the lives of others around you.  Prove your love walk with God quietly and allow God to forgive and bless you openly, without your help.  Do not put a Righteous Roman’s Forgiveness display sign on your forehead for the world to see how cool you are– or, That will be your reward.

Roman’s Radical Faithfulness

Radical isolationists are poised to prove to the world how spiritual, blessed, and enlightened they are compared to other christians.  People need to learn and study from them and not God–n ot so!  They have all of the answers, yet they do not have the heart to learn from others or admit that they make mistakes all of the time like all of us.  These free radicals are rascals running around railroading their agenda ahead of God’s will and message of love, help, hope, charity, kindness, long suffering, and truth.  Faithfulness is a humility in God that says yes to the biblical truth with practice, obedience, patience, and personal proof that God is merciful to you and your loved ones, based on your personal lifestyle, character, and commitment.

Roman’s Character Committed

Roman’s characters are always pretending to sing, dance, and shout before the Lord, as if He is deaf, dumb, and deficient in seeing behind that phony christian veil of lies we all tend to hide behind.  I repent everyday because I need to, just like everyone else, by faith, leaning on the Lord for help and guidance to help others.  People see God’s truth as we live honestly, without taking short cuts, leaving out the ingredients to God’s perfect recipe, which help us to shape our character.  We strive to be like God with His love and character, which is the opposite of the worldly roman character committed to typical lies that are being copied by many.

Today’s Question
Will God credit your faith and works justifiably righteous, based on your character, forgiveness, humility, and lifestyle or will you keep following and copying the world’s Romans Character?

Romans 4New International Version (NIV)

Abraham Justified by Faith

What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh,discovered in this matter? If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God. What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”[a]
Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation.However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
“Blessed are those
    whose transgressions are forgiven,
    whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the one
    whose sin the Lord will never count against them.”[b]
Is this blessedness only for the circumcised, or also for the uncircumcised? We have been saying that Abraham’s faith was credited to him as righteousness.10 Under what circumstances was it credited? Was it after he was circumcised, or before? It was not after, but before! 11 And he received circumcision as a sign, a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised. So then, he is the father of all who believe but have not been circumcised, in order that righteousness might be credited to them. 12 And he is then also the father of the circumcised who not only are circumcised but who also follow in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had before he was circumcised.
13 It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promisethat he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith. 14 For if those who depend on the law are heirs, faith means nothing and the promise is worthless, 15 because the law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression.
16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. 17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.”[c] He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.
18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”[d] 19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. 22 This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” 23 The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, 24 but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
 
Love,
Jonathan
