Forever

Today’s Quote
“People in hell will be ignored and punished forever, whereas the people in heaven will enjoy God’s blessings and presence.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Endless

God’s level of endless pleasure is hidden within the purpose and plans of Love in your life, heart, Spirit, and soul.  By executing the endless possibilities of doing God’s work here on earth, your faith will grow exponentially with an endless supply of support from God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. Walk in your gift and don’t abuse it. 

Always

Always remember that few are chosen to be with Christ in Heaven and many will turn away from the truth of God because of unbelief, greed, pride arrogance, selfishness, vanity, envy, strife, wickedness, and other lies.  Don’t be like those people. You have a choice, so always remember that.

Forgotten

People have forgotten the Ways of God because they never believed it from the beginning.  They know the Truth but refuse to change.  You will always do as you believe because you cannot lie to yourself and God at the same time.  However, lying to yourself and God does not relieve you of your responsibility or judgment in the last days.  Forever you will pay one way or the other.

How do you honestly visualize spending Forever in Hell?

Job 27 

Job’s Final Speech

27 Job continued speaking:
“I vow by the living God, who has taken away my rights,
    by the Almighty who has embittered my soul—
As long as I live,
    while I have breath from God,
my lips will speak no evil,
    and my tongue will speak no lies.
I will never concede that you are right;
    I will defend my integrity until I die.
I will maintain my innocence without wavering.
    My conscience is clear for as long as I live.
“May my enemy be punished like the wicked,
    my adversary like those who do evil.
For what hope do the godless have when God cuts them off
    and takes away their life?
Will God listen to their cry
    when trouble comes upon them?
10 Can they take delight in the Almighty?
    Can they call to God at any time?
11 I will teach you about God’s power.
    I will not conceal anything concerning the Almighty.
12 But you have seen all this,
    yet you say all these useless things to me.
13 “This is what the wicked will receive from God;
    this is their inheritance from the Almighty.
14 They may have many children,
    but the children will die in war or starve to death.
15 Those who survive will die of a plague,
    and not even their widows will mourn them.
16 “Evil people may have piles of money
    and may store away mounds of clothing.
17 But the righteous will wear that clothing,
    and the innocent will divide that money.
18 The wicked build houses as fragile as a spider’s web,[a]
    as flimsy as a shelter made of branches.
19 The wicked go to bed rich
    but wake to find that all their wealth is gone.
20 Terror overwhelms them like a flood,
    and they are blown away in the storms of the night.
21 The east wind carries them away, and they are gone.
    It sweeps them away.
22 It whirls down on them without mercy.
    They struggle to flee from its power.
23 But everyone jeers at them
    and mocks them.
 
Love,
 
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“I don’t read the bible to quote scriptures or because I’m made to do so; I just love the stories and lessons learned– as I have fun playing in God’s playground of life’s mysteries with discovery, respect, and great  joy.” ~ Jon Barnes

Sadness

People tend to dwell on the sadness and traumatic side of situations and often forget the wonders of doing, learning, teaching, reading, giving, and having fun with their talent, time, and love for people.  I do good because I love to do good and it brings me great joy to be apart of God’s Good Plan of eternal thinking, that is not selfish or self-seeking.  It saddens me to think that God’s Good Plan is not a popular plan that is held within the hearts of many, as only a few people care about the poor, needy, orphaned, homeless, widowed, and injustice in our world. 

Happiness

I enjoy the happiness that God has placed in my heart to help, serve, give, learn, do, and teach the fundamental lifestyles of God’s Commandments and lessons of old. Sharing my love for justice, peace, fairness, and awareness of God’s purpose for us, gives me satisfaction, joy, and complete happiness, like a perfect Father and Son relationship. Developing, sharing, and writing about my experiences in learning and connecting to God is like playing in the playground in heaven on earth, which is my personal concept of God as my Shepherd, Teacher, Creator, Father, and Lord of all things.

None

There is no end to the beginning of your life’s soul game in God, just steps.  Either you and your soul will step up into your game of love or you will step down into the pit of hell now and forever more with your lazy attitude, sorry aptitude, and worthless gratitude. God is Love and if you and your soul don’t understand this, know, or live by God’s Love, you already know your destination and End Game, by the devilish default settings of your choice from your cold heart of stone! Let the truth destroy your old heart so that God may give you a new one of perfect love before it is too late.

Joshua 20 

Cities of Refuge

20 Then the Lord said to Joshua: “Tell the Israelites to designate the cities of refuge, as I instructed you through Moses, so that anyone who kills a person accidentally and unintentionally may flee there and find protection from the avenger of blood. When they flee to one of these cities, they are to stand in the entrance of the city gate and state their case before the elders of that city. Then the elders are to admit the fugitive into their city and provide a place to live among them. If the avenger of blood comes in pursuit, the elders must not surrender the fugitive, because the fugitive killed their neighbor unintentionally and without malice aforethought. They are to stay in that city until they have stood trial before the assembly and until the death of the high priest who is serving at that time. Then they may go back to their own home in the town from which they fled.”
So they set apart Kedesh in Galilee in the hill country of Naphtali, Shechem in the hill country of Ephraim, and Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron) in the hill country of Judah. East of the Jordan (on the other side from Jericho) they designated Bezerin the wilderness on the plateau in the tribe of Reuben, Ramoth in Gilead in the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan in the tribe of Manasseh. Any of the Israelites or any foreigner residing among them who killed someone accidentally could flee to these designated cities and not be killed by the avenger of blood prior to standing trial before the assembly.
Love,
Jonathan

Days of Mathematics

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Only God knows the number of days, hours, and seconds you shall live on this earth and He alone also knows how long your soul will live in hell forever when your lifestyle has condemned you to this destination.” ~ Jon Barnes

Forever

Forever is a number that we cannot comprehend or count. People mistakenly use this name and number as if they really understand or know what it is all about. God is forever in Love and Love is forever in God. You cannot contain, hold, or comprehend this eternal truth, as it is too big for our nano brains to comprehend within God’s Universally Large mind, body, heart, and Spirit. You would be wise to respect God and His Forever Love than to partake and partner with His forever Hate for the Sin in your life, without Christ and true repentance.

Math

Like mathematics, the numbers in your actions should always add up to a positive increase for the day with Jesus, killing off all the negative things that could go wrong in your life. If we could only count the number of leaves that fall to the ground each year around the world, perhaps we could then give God the credit for creating and sustaining our being on this planet and use the Bible as a mathematical tool for God. I refuse to close my eyes to God’s Truth and not thank God Almighty for His Mercy, Glory, Sovereignty, and Majesty of All things seen and unseen, known and unknown. Let your faith add up to everlasting repentance, thanksgiving, and love towards God with goodwill towards man.

Words

In God, His Words are just buckets that contain The Work to be done, based on His Will, His Timing, and His Reference, which is The Vision and direction all things will flow forever. Only God can count each action, word, thought, work, choice, outcome, reward or judgment from his obedient or disobedient children. Store your treasures in heaven with faith, love, and good deeds and blessings from God. Since God’s Math and Words, all add up in every second of the day to help you find your way, as people die to find themselves in Heaven or Hell.
Today’s Question
Are you using God’s biblical mathematics to store your works of love in heaven?

Deuteronomy 31

Joshua Becomes Israel’s Leader

31 When Moses had finished giving these instructions[a] to all the people of Israel, he said, “I am now 120 years old, and I am no longer able to lead you. The Lord has told me, ‘You will not cross the Jordan River.’ But the Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you. He will destroy the nations living there, and you will take possession of their land. Joshua will lead you across the river, just as the Lord promised.
“The Lord will destroy the nations living in the land, just as he destroyed Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites. The Lord will hand over to you the people who live there, and you must deal with them as I have commanded you. So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
Then Moses called for Joshua, and as all Israel watched, he said to him, “Be strong and courageous! For you will lead these people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors he would give them. You are the one who will divide it among them as their grants of land. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

Public Reading of the Book of Instruction

So Moses wrote this entire body of instruction in a book and gave it to the priests, who carried the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant, and to the elders of Israel.10 Then Moses gave them this command: “At the end of every seventh year, the Year of Release, during the Festival of Shelters, 11 you must read this Book of Instruction to all the people of Israel when they assemble before the Lord your God at the place he chooses. 12 Call them all together—men, women, children, and the foreigners living in your towns—so they may hear this Book of Instruction and learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully obey all the terms of these instructions. 13 Do this so that your children who have not known these instructions will hear them and will learn to fear the Lord your God. Do this as long as you live in the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy.”

Israel’s Disobedience Predicted

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The time has come for you to die. Call Joshua and present yourselves at the Tabernacle,[b] so that I may commission him there.” So Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves at the Tabernacle. 15 And the Lord appeared to them in a pillar of cloud that stood at the entrance to the sacred tent.
16 The Lord said to Moses, “You are about to die and join your ancestors. After you are gone, these people will begin to worship foreign gods, the gods of the land where they are going. They will abandon me and break my covenant that I have made with them. 17 Then my anger will blaze forth against them. I will abandon them, hiding my face from them, and they will be devoured. Terrible trouble will come down on them, and on that day they will say, ‘These disasters have come down on us because God is no longer among us!’ 18 At that time I will hide my face from them on account of all the evil they commit by worshiping other gods.
19 “So write down the words of this song, and teach it to the people of Israel. Help them learn it, so it may serve as a witness for me against them. 20 For I will bring them into the land I swore to give their ancestors—a land flowing with milk and honey. There they will become prosperous, eat all the food they want, and become fat. But they will begin to worship other gods; they will despise me and break my covenant. 21 And when great disasters come down on them, this song will stand as evidence against them, for it will never be forgotten by their descendants. I know the intentions of these people, even now before they have entered the land I swore to give them.”
22 So that very day Moses wrote down the words of the song and taught it to the Israelites.
23 Then the Lord commissioned Joshua son of Nun with these words: “Be strong and courageous, for you must bring the people of Israel into the land I swore to give them. I will be with you.”
24 When Moses had finished writing this entire body of instruction in a book, 25 he gave this command to the Levites who carried the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant:26 “Take this Book of Instruction and place it beside the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord your God, so it may remain there as a witness against the people of Israel.27 For I know how rebellious and stubborn you are. Even now, while I am still alive and am here with you, you have rebelled against the Lord. How much more rebellious will you be after my death!
28 “Now summon all the elders and officials of your tribes, so that I can speak to them directly and call heaven and earth to witness against them. 29 I know that after my death you will become utterly corrupt and will turn from the way I have commanded you to follow. In the days to come, disaster will come down on you, for you will do what is evil in the Lord’s sight, making him very angry with your actions.”

The Song of Moses

30 So Moses recited this entire song publicly to the assembly of Israel:

Don’t Touch

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Know your boundaries and limits, since there are things you should never touch, consider, or think about!”~Jon Barnes

Questions

It is a waste of time listening and debating God’s Good information with evil people. Understanding and wisdom comes with learning, knowing, and applying God’s Word to live fruitful, productive lives. My questions are directed towards God and the study of who He is, what He thinks, How I should behave, where I should live, when I should move, and why I need to know biblical content and stories.

Shrewd

It is good to use good information accurately to help benefit others rather than for selfish gain, power, or lust, causing grief and deception.  Wisdom and understanding biblical content helps us to share and apply knowledge from God, to defeat evil. However, God is a very shrewd business man towards good and evil deeds, making people reap what they have sown.

Answers

God knows the answer to every question, before He ask it. It is wise to remember that you pray, walk, talk, and have access to God, who has all power, wisdom, knowledge, resources, and love. Continue in the way of God’s grace and mercy to learn, live, grow, and share His love to grow and multiply your fruit.

Genesis 3

The Man and Woman Sin

The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
“Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied.“It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
“You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.
When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man[a] and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”
10 He replied, “I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.”
11 “Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”
12 The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”
13 Then the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?”
“The serpent deceived me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.”
14 Then the Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this, you are cursed
    more than all animals, domestic and wild.
You will crawl on your belly,
    groveling in the dust as long as you live.
15 And I will cause hostility between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and her offspring.
He will strike[b] your head,
    and you will strike his heel.”
16 Then he said to the woman,
“I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy,
    and in pain you will give birth.
And you will desire to control your husband,
    but he will rule over you.[c]
17 And to the man he said,
“Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree
    whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,
the ground is cursed because of you.
    All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it.
18 It will grow thorns and thistles for you,
    though you will eat of its grains.
19 By the sweat of your brow
    will you have food to eat
until you return to the ground
    from which you were made.
For you were made from dust,
    and to dust you will return.”

Paradise Lost: God’s Judgment

20 Then the man—Adam—named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live.[d] 21 And the Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.
22 Then the Lord God said, “Look, the human beings[e] have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!” 23 So the Lord God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and he sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made. 24 After sending them out, the Lord God stationed mighty cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden. And he placed a flaming sword that flashed back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

Love,

Jonathan
