Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Each day, make your request know to God with the Lord’s Prayer and ask for directions with your daily activities to Supernaturally Charge your day.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Request

Each request is fresh and each new solution God gives you makes great sense after you do what God says.  In your own mind, you think that your wisdom is better.  NOT!  Trust God and stick with His Plans and scrap your own plans for the Ultimate Plan.  Request that God helps you to focus on this Fact.

Reply

My reply is always, “Lord, Thank You for hooking a brother UP!  I didn’t see this coming and I would have never dreamed of this idea unless you made it so.  Bless God!”  Your Father God wants to hear from you.  Giving God the credit for His Plan for your life makes it easier to succeed in all of your endeavors and fun for you to avoid the nonsense that is waiting for you.

Granted

Access Granted is what you want to hear with each little step you take and the fruit of your faith and work will remain strong, full, and obvious forever in God.  Your all-access pass is real for those who are called for God’s purpose, work, love, and faith. The options and descriptions of ignorance are merely a footnote in the timeline of eternity with God, that is granted to His Loving Children.
Today’s Question
Do you have access to God, His Ways, Lifestyle, and Bible to properly Petition and Place Proper Value upon His Plan and Path for your life?

Job 8 

Bildad

Then Bildad the Shuhite replied:
“How long will you say such things?
    Your words are a blustering wind.
Does God pervert justice?
    Does the Almighty pervert what is right?
When your children sinned against him,
    he gave them over to the penalty of their sin.
But if you will seek God earnestly
    and plead with the Almighty,
if you are pure and upright,
    even now he will rouse himself on your behalf
    and restore you to your prosperous state.
Your beginnings will seem humble,
    so prosperous will your future be.
“Ask the former generation
    and find out what their ancestors learned,
for we were born only yesterday and know nothing,
    and our days on earth are but a shadow.
10 Will they not instruct you and tell you?
    Will they not bring forth words from their understanding?
11 Can papyrus grow tall where there is no marsh?
    Can reeds thrive without water?
12 While still growing and uncut,
    they wither more quickly than grass.
13 Such is the destiny of all who forget God;
    so perishes the hope of the godless.
14 What they trust in is fragile[a];
    what they rely on is a spider’s web.
15 They lean on the web, but it gives way;
    they cling to it, but it does not hold.
16 They are like a well-watered plant in the sunshine,
    spreading its shoots over the garden;
17 it entwines its roots around a pile of rocks
    and looks for a place among the stones.
18 But when it is torn from its spot,
    that place disowns it and says, ‘I never saw you.’
19 Surely its life withers away,
    and[b] from the soil other plants grow.
20 “Surely God does not reject one who is blameless
    or strengthen the hands of evildoers.
21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter
    and your lips with shouts of joy.
22 Your enemies will be clothed in shame,
    and the tents of the wicked will be no more.”

Love,

Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“If God is pleased about the completion of my daily work ethic, then my life is an honor and credit to my parents and ancestors who are in my direct bloodline.” ~ Jon Barnes

Rate

Rate your own work habits, thoughts, and personal records to see if your work nets you a surplus with God.  You are being paid daily for the contributions you make and people are thinking and talking about your contributions to society as well.  They also see your deviant behavior from the truth about God so represents well.  Strive to rate, relate, or reset yourself with God’s lifestyle each day as you pray.

Relax

For each hour you work, check in with God for 10 minutes to reflect and see what you have accomplished.  You will notice how smoothly you have handled yourself and situations that may have been a disaster, but God was with you hooking you up.  Learn to relax and reflect after each victory each hour of your life to appreciate God and the great memories of love. Like and enjoy the bad stuff too, counting it all as joy.

Rest

It is hard to relax and rest in God when He is not in your life.  Your rating does not exist and it is only in your mind that you are doing fine.  Everyone else can tell that you are a hot mess, homeless without God, which is what hell is.  You have been approved to burn and die twice as God rewards you as a sinner, without hope, rest, or relaxation in Jesus.
Today’s Question
Are you being molested and raped by the devil each day, with your approval, in your self-made prison of rebellion, being disobedient to God?

2 Chronicles 10 

The Northern Tribes Revolt

10 Rehoboam went to Shechem, where all Israel had gathered to make him king. When Jeroboam son of Nebat heard of this, he returned from Egypt, for he had fled to Egypt to escape from King Solomon. The leaders of Israel summoned him, and Jeroboam and all Israel went to speak with Rehoboam. “Your father was a hard master,” they said. “Lighten the harsh labor demands and heavy taxes that your father imposed on us. Then we will be your loyal subjects.”
Rehoboam replied, “Come back in three days for my answer.” So the people went away.
Then King Rehoboam discussed the matter with the older men who had counseled his father, Solomon. “What is your advice?” he asked. “How should I answer these people?”
The older counselors replied, “If you are good to these people and do your best to please them and give them a favorable answer, they will always be your loyal subjects.”
But Rehoboam rejected the advice of the older men and instead asked the opinion of the young men who had grown up with him and were now his advisers. “What is your advice?” he asked them. “How should I answer these people who want me to lighten the burdens imposed by my father?”
10 The young men replied, “This is what you should tell those complainers who want a lighter burden: ‘My little finger is thicker than my father’s waist! 11 Yes, my father laid heavy burdens on you, but I’m going to make them even heavier! My father beat you with whips, but I will beat you with scorpions!’”
12 Three days later Jeroboam and all the people returned to hear Rehoboam’s decision, just as the king had ordered. 13 But Rehoboam spoke harshly to them, for he rejected the advice of the older counselors 14 and followed the counsel of his younger advisers. He told the people, “My father laid[a] heavy burdens on you, but I’m going to make them even heavier! My father beat you with whips, but I will beat you with scorpions!”
15 So the king paid no attention to the people. This turn of events was the will of God, for it fulfilled the Lord’s message to Jeroboam son of Nebat through the prophet Ahijah from Shiloh.
16 When all Israel realized[b] that the king had refused to listen to them, they responded,
“Down with the dynasty of David!
    We have no interest in the son of Jesse.
Back to your homes, O Israel!
    Look out for your own house, O David!”
So all the people of Israel returned home. 17 But Rehoboam continued to rule over the Israelites who lived in the towns of Judah.
18 King Rehoboam sent Adoniram,[c] who was in charge of forced labor, to restore order, but the people of Israel stoned him to death. When this news reached King Rehoboam, he quickly jumped into his chariot and fled to Jerusalem. 19 And to this day the northern tribes of Israel have refused to be ruled by a descendant of David.
Love,
Jonathan

Hurt

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“We hurt ourselves when quality time is not spent on doing our own homework, preparing our food, fixing problems, resting, reflecting, learning new things, and following the truth about God.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Rob

We rob God all of the time with our laziness, money, lack of quality, honesty, behavior, thoughts, and lack of prayers in doing the good work assigned to us.  When we are given instructions each day, your faith is activated by the amount of work you have completed and shared.  Otherwise, we can become trapped in the renters market mentality, being denied homeownership, personal buy-in, along with the scandalous economic banking business process.  The current system is designed for you not to own your own home or business unless you rise above the hurdles and challenges before you. God knows how!

Activation

Faith without your own “HOME” work is dead and empty.  Faith is like a credit card with an activation sticker and a phone number to call for action.  Unless you make the call to activate the card, it will not work. You must hear God say, “your card is activated for yourself.”  When you call on God, you are activating your faith with action, so that you may complete the work, hear His voice, and grow in love.  Your credit card is unlimited as long as you obey the rules and commandments that are stated in the Bible, your public policy book.  When you break the rules and operate your lifestyle in a negative way with poor cash flow, your daily actions compound your problems like the black hole.

Signature

Now, you must also put your name on God’s credit card to authenticate and seal the deal.  Stop hurting yourself.  Pick a pin number and begin shopping for your spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and gifts to help others.  Use the card to buy supplies needed to share the Gospel of Christ and God will teach you about the business of reaping and sowing.  Your quality work pays for your bills and the extra profit is for savings, investments in the kingdom, and management for future activities. Giving 10 percent back to God is like earning rewards points for the future budget.  The church is your friend, so take it with you everywhere you go!
Today’s Question
Will you continue to rob God of quality time, faith, work, and sincere effort?

1 Chronicles 12 

Warriors Join David

12 These were the men who came to David at Ziklag, while he was banished from the presence of Saul son of Kish (they were among the warriors who helped him in battle; they were armed with bows and were able to shoot arrows or to sling stones right-handed or left-handed; they were relatives of Saul from the tribe of Benjamin):
Ahiezer their chief and Joash the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; Jeziel and Pelet the sons of Azmaveth; Berakah, Jehu the Anathothite, and Ishmaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty warrior among the Thirty, who was a leader of the Thirty; Jeremiah, Jahaziel, Johanan, Jozabad the Gederathite,[a] Eluzai, Jerimoth, Bealiah, Shemariah and Shephatiah the Haruphite; Elkanah, Ishiah, Azarel, Joezer and Jashobeam the Korahites; and Joelah and Zebadiah the sons of Jeroham from Gedor.
Some Gadites defected to David at his stronghold in the wilderness. They were brave warriors, ready for battle and able to handle the shield and spear. Their faces were the faces of lions, and they were as swift as gazelles in the mountains.
Ezer was the chief,
Obadiah the second in command, Eliab the third,
10 Mishmannah the fourth, Jeremiah the fifth,
11 Attai the sixth, Eliel the seventh,
12 Johanan the eighth, Elzabad the ninth,
13 Jeremiah the tenth and Makbannai the eleventh.
14 These Gadites were army commanders; the least was a match for a hundred, and the greatest for a thousand. 15 It was they who crossed the Jordan in the first month when it was overflowing all its banks, and they put to flight everyone living in the valleys, to the east and to the west.
16 Other Benjamites and some men from Judah also came to David in his stronghold. 17 David went out to meet them and said to them, “If you have come to me in peace to help me, I am ready for you to join me. But if you have come to betray me to my enemies when my hands are free from violence, may the God of our ancestors see it and judge you.”
18 Then the Spirit came on Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said:
“We are yours, David!
    We are with you, son of Jesse!
Success, success to you,
    and success to those who help you,
        for your God will help you.”
So David received them and made them leaders of his raiding bands.
19 Some of the tribe of Manasseh defected to David when he went with the Philistines to fight against Saul. (He and his men did not help the Philistines because, after consultation, their rulers sent him away. They said, “It will cost us our heads if he deserts to his master Saul.”)20 When David went to Ziklag, these were the men of Manasseh who defected to him: Adnah, Jozabad, Jediael, Michael, Jozabad, Elihu and Zillethai, leaders of units of a thousand in Manasseh. 21 They helped David against raiding bands, for all of them were brave warriors, and they were commanders in his army. 22 Day after day men came to help David, until he had a great army, like the army of God.[b]

Others Join David at Hebron

23 These are the numbers of the men armed for battle who came to David at Hebron to turnSaul’s kingdom over to him, as the Lord had said:
24 from Judah, carrying shield and spear—6,800 armed for battle;
25 from Simeon, warriors ready for battle—7,100;
26 from Levi—4,600, 27 including Jehoiada, leader of the family of Aaron, with 3,700 men,28 and Zadok, a brave young warrior, with 22 officers from his family;
29 from Benjamin, Saul’s tribe—3,000, most of whom had remained loyal to Saul’s house until then;
30 from Ephraim, brave warriors, famous in their own clans—20,800;
31 from half the tribe of Manasseh, designated by name to come and make David king—18,000;
32 from Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do—200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command;
33 from Zebulun, experienced soldiers prepared for battle with every type of weapon, to help David with undivided loyalty—50,000;
34 from Naphtali—1,000 officers, together with 37,000 men carrying shields and spears;
35 from Dan, ready for battle—28,600;
36 from Asher, experienced soldiers prepared for battle—40,000;
37 and from east of the Jordan, from Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh, armed with every type of weapon—120,000.
38 All these were fighting men who volunteered to serve in the ranks. They came to Hebron fully determined to make David king over all Israel. All the rest of the Israelites were also of one mind to make David king. 39 The men spent three days there with David, eating and drinking, for their families had supplied provisions for them. 40 Also, their neighbors from as far away as Issachar, Zebulun and Naphtali came bringing food on donkeys, camels, mules and oxen. There were plentiful supplies of flour, fig cakes, raisin cakes, wine, olive oil, cattle and sheep, for there was joy in Israel.
Love,
Jonathan
