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
“What you feed your mind determines the fate of your mental health issues in the future, so feed and use as much biblical wisdom as you can, to avoid the potential mental meltdowns in life.” ~ Jon Barnes

Issues

Personal issues can be devastating when God’s plan is not in place in your life because of disobedience to the truth and not following God’s path that good people and parents have set for us.  When parents are not good role models, follow God’s examples and stories. Since listening to God and other good people early in life is not the case for many, major issues tend to develop and corrupt future lifestyles. Damage is normally caused by your own hands. Reaping what you sow can take some time to catch up with you and your deviant ways, as well. As a result, lifestyle and family functions can fall through the cracks, which is not what God planned for your life.

Brain

Mistakes and bad choices begin to add up and look like a mountain of dirt because eating the devil’s dog food and lifestyle choices did not have the proper nutrients for normal brain function and development, as a superior human being.

Numbers 28 NLT

The Daily Offerings

28 The Lord said to Moses, “Give these instructions to the people of Israel: The offerings you present as special gifts are a pleasing aroma to me; they are my food. See to it that they are brought at the appointed times and offered according to my instructions.
“Say to the people: This is the special gift you must present to the Lord as your daily burnt offering. You must offer two one-year-old male lambs with no defects. Sacrifice one lamb in the morning and the other in the evening. With each lamb you must offer a grain offering of two quarts[a] of choice flour mixed with one quart[b] of pure oil of pressed olives. This is the regular burnt offering instituted at Mount Sinai as a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord.Along with it you must present the proper liquid offering of one quart of alcoholic drink with each lamb, poured out in the Holy Place as an offering to the Lord. Offer the second lamb in the evening with the same grain offering and liquid offering. It, too, is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord.

The Sabbath Offerings

“On the Sabbath day, sacrifice two one-year-old male lambs with no defects. They must be accompanied by a grain offering of four quarts[c] of choice flour moistened with olive oil, and a liquid offering. 10 This is the burnt offering to be presented each Sabbath day, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its accompanying liquid offering.

The Monthly Offerings

11 “On the first day of each month, present an extra burnt offering to the Lord of two young bulls, one ram, and seven one-year-old male lambs, all with no defects. 12 These must be accompanied by grain offerings of choice flour moistened with olive oil—six quarts[d] with each bull, four quarts with the ram, 13 and two quarts with each lamb. This burnt offering will be a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord. 14 You must also present a liquid offering with each sacrifice: two quarts[e] of wine for each bull, a third of a gallon[f] for the ram, and one quart[g] for each lamb. Present this monthly burnt offering on the first day of each month throughout the year.
15 “On the first day of each month, you must also offer one male goat for a sin offering to the Lord. This is in addition to the regular burnt offering and its accompanying liquid offering.

Offerings for the Passover

16 “On the fourteenth day of the first month,[h] you must celebrate the Lord’s Passover. 17 On the following day—the fifteenth day of the month—a joyous, seven-day festival will begin, but no bread made with yeast may be eaten. 18 The first day of the festival will be an official day for holy assembly, and no ordinary work may be done on that day. 19 As a special gift you must present a burnt offering to the Lord—two young bulls, one ram, and seven one-year-old male lambs, all with no defects. 20 These will be accompanied by grain offerings of choice flour moistened with olive oil—six quarts with each bull, four quarts with the ram, 21 and two quarts with each of the seven lambs. 22 You must also offer a male goat as a sin offering to purify yourselves and make yourselves right with the Lord.[i] 23 Present these offerings in addition to your regular morning burnt offering. 24 On each of the seven days of the festival, this is how you must prepare the food offering that is presented as a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord. These will be offered in addition to the regular burnt offerings and liquid offerings. 25 The seventh day of the festival will be another official day for holy assembly, and no ordinary work may be done on that day.

Offerings for the Festival of Harvest

26 “At the Festival of Harvest,[j] when you present the first of your new grain to the Lord, you must call an official day for holy assembly, and you may do no ordinary work on that day.27 Present a special burnt offering on that day as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. It will consist of two young bulls, one ram, and seven one-year-old male lambs. 28 These will be accompanied by grain offerings of choice flour moistened with olive oil—six quarts with each bull, four quarts with the ram, 29 and two quarts with each of the seven lambs. 30 Also, offer one male goat to purify yourselves and make yourselves right with the Lord. 31 Prepare these special burnt offerings, along with their liquid offerings, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its accompanying grain offering. Be sure that all the animals you sacrifice have no defects.
Love,
Jonathan

The Cell

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“It is in the cells of your mind that your heart is teased, tempted, and tested to show God if you are a worthy, qualified, good laborer of Love for the King of Kings, Lord of Lords!’ ~ Jon Barnes

Cell Phones

A cell phone is like a written piece of communication with your voice attached to it, but it is not you and your actions that are necessary to complete the task. You cannot be tested in a test tube of your own reality, but God will test you, not in a dream, but face to face in your evil choices, where the decision, action, and consequence is carried out simultaneously. Otherwise, your selfies, jail cell, and self-inflicted prison awaits you, inside you lifeless house or room.

Computer Simulation

Computer “fake-book” doesn’t compare to the harsh realities of walking in the fruit of the Spirit with God’s Presence as we fight daily to make better decisions about love, honor, grace, mercy, long-suffering, honesty, sacrifice, repentance, thanksgiving, and praise.  Artificial intelligence makes it easy for us to hide our feelings, faces, lifestyles of lust, idolatry, greed, fake-ness, laziness, and indifference towards God! Life is lived outside of your walls of intelligence and handcuffs.

The War

The war is at your front door, whether you like it or not and you must fight the good fight of faith, love, and good work that follows your daily actions to choose the better way for yourself. Being a leader does not allow the weakness of others to make you weak. Your weakness and meekness in God make the Kingdom Stronger because of your faith and obedience, not your intelligence or ideas! Your death to sin is the power you have, which is given back to God from the blood of Jesus, your repentance, and obedience to God’s ways and lifestyle.

Today’s Question

Choose your weapon to fight with God or will you let the devil choose you from his cell phone or jail cell in Hell?

Exodus 25

Offerings for the Tabernacle

25 The Lord said to Moses, “Tell the people of Israel to bring me their sacred offerings. Accept the contributions from all whose hearts are moved to offer them.Here is a list of sacred offerings you may accept from them:
gold, silver, and bronze;
blue, purple, and scarlet thread;
fine linen and goat hair for cloth;
tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather;
acacia wood;
olive oil for the lamps;
spices for the anointing oil and the fragrant incense;
onyx stones, and other gemstones to be set in the ephod and the priest’s chest piece.
“Have the people of Israel build me a holy sanctuary so I can live among them.You must build this Tabernacle and its furnishings exactly according to the pattern I will show you.

Plans for the Ark of the Covenant

10 “Have the people make an Ark of acacia wood—a sacred chest 45 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 27 inches high.[a] 11 Overlay it inside and outside with pure gold, and run a molding of gold all around it. 12 Cast four gold rings and attach them to its four feet, two rings on each side. 13 Make poles from acacia wood, and overlay them with gold. 14 Insert the poles into the rings at the sides of the Ark to carry it. 15 These carrying poles must stay inside the rings; never remove them.16 When the Ark is finished, place inside it the stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant,[b] which I will give to you.
17 “Then make the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—from pure gold. It must be 45 inches long and 27 inches wide.[c] 18 Then make two cherubim from hammered gold, and place them on the two ends of the atonement cover. 19 Mold the cherubim on each end of the atonement cover, making it all of one piece of gold. 20 The cherubim will face each other and look down on the atonement cover. With their wings spread above it, they will protect it. 21 Place inside the Ark the stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, which I will give to you. Then put the atonement cover on top of the Ark. 22 I will meet with you there and talk to you from above the atonement cover between the gold cherubim that hover over the Ark of the Covenant.[d] From there I will give you my commands for the people of Israel.

Plans for the Table

23 “Then make a table of acacia wood, 36 inches long, 18 inches wide, and 27 inches high.[e] 24 Overlay it with pure gold and run a gold molding around the edge.25 Decorate it with a 3-inch border[f] all around, and run a gold molding along the border. 26 Make four gold rings for the table and attach them at the four corners next to the four legs. 27 Attach the rings near the border to hold the poles that are used to carry the table. 28 Make these poles from acacia wood, and overlay them with gold. 29 Make special containers of pure gold for the table—bowls, ladles, pitchers, and jars—to be used in pouring out liquid offerings. 30 Place the Bread of the Presence on the table to remain before me at all times.

Plans for the Lamp stand

31 “Make a lamp stand of pure, hammered gold. Make the entire lamp stand and its decorations of one piece—the base, center stem, lamp cups, buds, and petals.32 Make it with six branches going out from the center stem, three on each side.33 Each of the six branches will have three lamp cups shaped like almond blossoms, complete with buds and petals. 34 Craft the center stem of the lamp stand with four lamp cups shaped like almond blossoms, complete with buds and petals. 35 There will also be an almond bud beneath each pair of branches where the six branches extend from the center stem. 36 The almond buds and branches must all be of one piece with the center stem, and they must be hammered from pure gold. 37 Then make the seven lamps for the lamp stand, and set them so they reflect their light forward. 38 The lamp snuffers and trays must also be made of pure gold. 39 You will need 75 pounds[g] of pure gold for the lamp stand and its accessories.
40 “Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain.
Love,
Jonathan
