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?
Love,
Jonathan

The Deal

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Improve your character flaws by allowing God to teach you how to deal with them more effectively, efficiently, and honestly.” ~ Jon Barnes

Cards

We are all dealt a hand of cards to use, exchange, and play out. These choices will bring about success or failure.  Your honest play is always the best choice since the dealer already knows what is in your hand before you play your card to make your move.  God is simply measuring your character, movement, and choice of actions in the cards that you play.  

Cheating

Cheating, stealing, and stacking the deck is forbidden and your every move is being watched, used, recorded, and documented. Your character flaws will improve based on your true belief in God and measure of faith.  People will notice the good work, steady focus, and positive cards that you play in your hand. breaking the rules is evil and a distraction to others that follow your lead, in which you will pay the great price.

Verdict

Judge yourself by God’s standards to make corrections in your faith and actions, before He judges you. Your last breath is your last card. Do not be a fool and wait until the last second, with dishonest intentions to trick God! It will not work. God will allow you to develop these burning, dishonest thoughts with your verdict in hell, along with your personal flaws of evil works and lack of faith and losing hand.
Today’s Question
Do you lack the faith in God, because you have no deal, connection, work ethic, and Godly experience?

2 Samuel 4 

The Murder of Ishbosheth

When Ishbosheth,[a] Saul’s son, heard about Abner’s death at Hebron, he lost all courage, and all Israel became paralyzed with fear. Now there were two brothers, Baanah and Recab, who were captains of Ishbosheth’s raiding parties. They were sons of Rimmon, a member of the tribe of Benjamin who lived in Beeroth. The town of Beeroth is now part of Benjamin’s territory because the original people of Beeroth fled to Gittaim, where they still live as foreigners.
(Saul’s son Jonathan had a son named Mephibosheth,[b] who was crippled as a child. He was five years old when the report came from Jezreel that Saul and Jonathan had been killed in battle. When the child’s nurse heard the news, she picked him up and fled. But as she hurried away, she dropped him, and he became crippled.)
One day Recab and Baanah, the sons of Rimmon from Beeroth, went to Ishbosheth’s house around noon as he was taking his midday rest. The doorkeeper, who had been sifting wheat, became drowsy and fell asleep. So Recab and Baanah slipped past her.[c] They went into the house and found Ishbosheth sleeping on his bed. They struck and killed him and cut off his head. Then, taking his head with them, they fled across the Jordan Valley[d] through the night. When they arrived at Hebron, they presented Ishbosheth’s head to David. “Look!” they exclaimed to the king. “Here is the head of Ishbosheth, the son of your enemy Saul who tried to kill you. Today the Lord has given my lord the king revenge on Saul and his entire family!”
But David said to Recab and Baanah, “The Lord, who saves me from all my enemies, is my witness. 10 Someone once told me, ‘Saul is dead,’ thinking he was bringing me good news. But I seized him and killed him at Ziklag. That’s the reward I gave him for his news! 11 How much more should I reward evil men who have killed an innocent man in his own house and on his own bed? Shouldn’t I hold you responsible for his blood and rid the earth of you?”
12 So David ordered his young men to kill them, and they did. They cut off their hands and feet and hung their bodies beside the pool in Hebron. Then they took Ishbosheth’s head and buried it in Abner’s tomb in Hebron.
Love,
Jonathan
