Mom Talks

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“When your mom tells you what to do and perhaps it seems impossible to understand the simple lesson, it is the child’s job to honor the parent by making the right choices in completing the task, as God leads and guides you.” ~ Jon Barnes
 

Obedience

Your obedience to your parents is as if God is talking to you and the Word of God is a balanced circle that will not contradict itself. With all the good that you do, God will protect you in your obedience and provide a way of escape, to deliver and accomplish the task and goals.  The proof is in the quality product that you deliver with your mind, work, and hands. Shortcuts, confusion and the lack of attention to detail will not cut it. Always strive to do a fantastic job for your parents and teachers to the best of your ability.

 

The Work Ethics 

There is a reason why you should listen to your mom and learn the lessons the first time. You waste a lot of time being stubborn and hardheaded. This is why God said to honor them, period! People who don’t honor their parents make fools of themselves, chasing their tails, like a dog. You are not a dog, so change your behavior and work ethic.  Do more with less, because you listened the first time and completed the simple task that your mom asked! Your failure is marked by your incomplete jobs and excuses. You must work. 

Your Abilities

 
Abilities and insights improve with experience you gain from doing your best with what you have in front of you.  Your wasteful attitude and lack of respect for your resources and the people around you paint the picture of your future success. Since you are smarter than everyone, your lack of productivity shows the fruit of your labor. Humility brings about abilities, yet seen in God. Arrogance brings about the fragrance of poo and fraud. Complete the simple tasks and assignments and the great ones will follow.

Deuteronomy 10

A New Copy of the Covenant

10 “At that time the Lord said to me, ‘Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones. Also make a wooden Ark—a sacred chest to store them in. Come up to me on the mountain, and I will write on the tablets the same words that were on the ones you smashed. Then place the tablets in the Ark.’
“So I made an Ark of acacia wood and cut two stone tablets like the first two. Then I went up the mountain with the tablets in my hand. Once again the Lordwrote the Ten Commandments[a] on the tablets and gave them to me. They were the same words the Lord had spoken to you from the heart of the fire on the day you were assembled at the foot of the mountain. Then I turned and came down the mountain and placed the tablets in the Ark of the Covenant, which I had made, just as the Lord commanded me. And the tablets are still there in the Ark.”
(The people of Israel set out from the wells of the people of Jaakan[b] and traveled to Moserah, where Aaron died and was buried. His son Eleazar ministered as high priest in his place. Then they journeyed to Gudgodah, and from there to Jotbathah, a land with many brooks and streams. At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant, and to stand before the Lord as his ministers, and to pronounce blessings in his name. These are their duties to this day. That is why the Levites have no share of property or possession of land among the other Israelite tribes. The Lord himself is their special possession, as the Lord your God told them.)
10 “As for me, I stayed on the mountain in the Lord’s presence for forty days and nights, as I had done the first time. And once again the Lord listened to my pleas and agreed not to destroy you. 11 Then the Lord said to me, ‘Get up and resume the journey, and lead the people to the land I swore to give to their ancestors, so they may take possession of it.’

A Call to Love and Obedience

12 “And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the Lord your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul. 13 And you must always obey the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good.
14 “Look, the highest heavens and the earth and everything in it all belong to the Lord your God. 15 Yet the Lord chose your ancestors as the objects of his love. And he chose you, their descendants, above all other nations, as is evident today.16 Therefore, change your hearts[c] and stop being stubborn.
17 “For the Lord your God is the God of gods and Lord of lords. He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God, who shows no partiality and cannot be bribed. 18 He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing. 19 So you, too, must show love to foreigners, for you yourselves were once foreigners in the land of Egypt. 20 You must fear the Lord your God and worship him and cling to him. Your oaths must be in his name alone. 21 He alone is your God, the only one who is worthy of your praise, the one who has done these mighty miracles that you have seen with your own eyes. 22 When your ancestors went down into Egypt, there were only seventy of them. But now the Lord your God has made you as numerous as the stars in the sky!
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
When you study from The Owner, The Big Boss, The Creator, then you can learn to change your mistakes to manage your lifestyle correctly and teach others how to improve themselves, fixing and recognizing, their own mistakes.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Recognizing Rights

It is your right to recognize your own problems and finding the right solutions quickly– early in the game of life– is essential.  God gives us the common sense to know right from wrong, and it is a good idea to surround yourself with people who are doing the right things, written by the Hand of God!

The Hand of God

How will you know what the Hand of God is when you don’t know who Your Father is? Your relationship with your Dad will help you to see and understand what life is truly about from God’s perspective, because one created the other and one is responsible for the other.  Hand in Hand, the Love is transferred from generation to generation of people who care and love God’s Management System of the Universe.  Why study and learn counterfeit information?

Playground Time

Spend time with your Dad on the playground of life to swing your destiny into a whole new world of possibilities into the galaxies in your mind and heart.  Since God knows how you work, study the manual from the owner to unlock the true secrets and purpose of love, life, and eternity with God. The Mind of Christ is transferred to you by Him, Your Dad, from the Playground of Life.

1 Corinthians 2New International Version (NIV)

And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a]For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit

We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written:
“What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”[b]
    the things God has prepared for those who love him—
10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 What we have received is not the spiritof the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.[c]14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for,
“Who has known the mind of the Lord
    so as to instruct him?”[d]
But we have the mind of Christ.
Love,
Jonathan

The Good Parent

 

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“My kids all constantly remind me how quickly I respond to them when they are doing good or bad works.  Still, some how, I can walk a mile in two steps to reach them, with an axe for a tongue, nail like fingers, and an atomic holy foot to keep them in line!”  ~ Jon Barnes

Weapons of ((M))ass 

As my children grew, I made sure they understood their boundaries and provided correction as needed.  I was around to execute judgement and I still am!  On my watch, my kids will do well and focus on God, or else they face the consequences of their actions. Now that they’re adults, we’ll get together and they laugh, reminiscing at the times when they got into trouble– knowing well enough their actions would bring upon judgement. Correction, when provided appropriately, allows kids to learn and understand personal responsibility.

The Atomic Button

Kids need to know that they are accountable for their actions and the fear of God should come over them when they see you are displeased.  Love, respect, and fear are healthy combinations and boundaries to establish and maintain wisdom, knowledge, and intelligence.  The Rod of Correction activated the Atomic Bomb in the minds of kids to learn and know that the truth is read!  The bomb was dropped every day because I was there to hit the Red button exploding new and wonderful learning opportunities in their minds to lead and guide them into God’s Truth. There is no excuse. Now get to Work!

Not too Busy

I’m not too busy to spend time, talk, or have fun with my children and family.  They were taught how to read the bible, respect God, and honestly do their best work with their best effort.  We have tons of fun doing crazy things, playing music, teaching, learning, sharing, and growing in love.  I am here to lead, guide, and answer questions, while praying and pointing to God for answers to new questions.
Yet, we are not too busy to regularly spend quality time, living, learning, listening, and loving each other. Don’t be a Fake Parent, being driven by the money, business, opportunities, cell phone and computer, cars, houses, and boats, etc, while ignoring your own health, savings, responsibilities, and time management with God, your own kids, family, and life.  Live with Integrity!

Mark 16New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Has Risen

16 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robesitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him,just as he told you.’”
Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.[a]

[The earliest manuscripts and some other ancient witnesses do not have verses 9–20.]
When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons. 10 She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping. 11 When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
12 Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country. 13 These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
14 Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
Love Y’ all Madly,
Jonathan
