Eye Dulls

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“When you put your agenda in front of God’s you are pursuing your fleshly desires, acting as your own god”~TB

 

Dull Eyes

The nation has given way to idolatry in every shape and form. You sit in front of your screens, binging whatever you please, numbing yourself to what is happening around you. Then you shamelessly brag about your laziness, amassing support from your peers as if you’ve done something noteworthy! You create false images of yourselves praising false love, entrapping the minds of the young and lost. You mock and scoff at the honest workers tilling the soil, yet you secretly conspire to steal their belongings. Many are asleep at the wheel, but soon our eyes will be wide open.

Binge on This  

Why do you ignore the signs and warnings that He sends? You bully those that speak the truth, perverting their message as if you are the victim. Then you claim this is done in love. Friends, God IS love. There is no other form. All else is a shoddy mockery that only fools so desperately cling to. Wake up before you lose your choice in the matter. If not, you will be crushed in the perverse bed of your lovers.  He will turn over your land to the very people you seek to kill and destroy. The oppressed will soon be vindicated as their oppressors will crumble from the wrath of justice. You’ve been warned

Today’s Question

Are you still your own god or are you ready to be called His?

Psalm 72

1 Give your love of justice to the king, O God, and righteousness to the king’s son. 
2 Help him judge your people in the right way; let the poor always be treated fairly. 
3 May the mountains yield prosperity for all, and may the hills be fruitful. 
4 Help him to defend the poor, to rescue the children of the needy, and to crush their oppressors. 
5 May they fear you as long as the sun shines, as long as the moon remains in the sky. Yes, forever! 
6 May the king’s rule be refreshing like spring rain on freshly cut grass, like the showers that water the earth. 
7 May all the godly flourish during his reign. May there be abundant prosperity until the moon is no more. 
8 May he reign from sea to sea, and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth. 
9 Desert nomads will bow before him; his enemies will fall before him in the dust. 
10 The western kings of Tarshish and other distant lands will bring him tribute. The eastern kings of Sheba and Seba will bring him gifts. 
11 All kings will bow before him, and all nations will serve him. 
12 He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. 
13 He feels pity for the weak and the needy, and he will rescue them. 
14 He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him. 
15 Long live the king! May the gold of Sheba be given to him. May the people always pray for him and bless him all day long. 
16 May there be abundant grain throughout the land, flourishing even on the hilltops. May the fruit trees flourish like the trees of Lebanon, and may the people thrive like grass in a field. 
17 May the king’s name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun shines. May all nations be blessed through him and bring him praise. 
18 Praise the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does such wonderful things. 
19 Praise his glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and amen! 
20 (This ends the prayers of David son of Jesse.)

Justify

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“It does not take much to justify evil, because unchecked flesh craves sin and will blindly see it as good!”~TB

 

Justif(r)ied

You justify worshipping yourselves by throwing decadent parades glorifying your own image. You publicly glorify the defilement of your bodies, claiming freedom and self-revolution yet you are a slave to your own depravity.  You lure people with sweet words and songs, only to manipulate them into doing your bidding under the guise of being “nice”. Of course, if one doesn’t bend to your will and kneel on their knees, it’s their fault! You justify the cruel treatment of foreigners citing the very same corrupt laws that enslave you. Yet you say you love the Lord. You will be judged.

Readjust

Friends, it’s time to make some adjustments. Have you not studied the readings? Are you arrogant enough to believe that we are above the same fates as Judah and Israel? Do not be surprised when judgment floods the land, crushing the blind and the corrupt. Do not be surprised when your cries to the Lord for relief and mercy fall on deaf ears. He will give you the same silence that you gave the oppressed. Enjoy the festivities now because they are surely coming to an end.

Today’s Question

Are you still justifying or are you making adjustments to turn to the Lord?

Psalm 70

1 Please, God, rescue me! Come quickly, LORD, and help me. 
2 May those who try to kill me be humiliated and put to shame. May those who take delight in my trouble be turned back in disgrace. 
3 Let them be horrified by their shame, for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now!” 
4 But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, “God is great!” 
5 But as for me, I am poor and needy; please hurry to my aid, O God. You are my helper and my savior; O LORD, do not delay.

 

The Rich

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“God does not care about your status, money, fame, success, or self-righteousness, but He cares about your honesty, love, and commitment to obeying His Truth and biblical principles; particularly, the love management topics.” ~ Jon Barnes

Idiot

God will not argue with an idiot, so why should you? Give, love, work, share, inform and be happy in Jesus! I can’t save you, only God can. My job is to point to the real source of my love, affection, and mind set so that you may do your own homework and want to walk with God for yourself. Manage your own affairs in love or enjoy your path of the unwise and foolish.

Idols

We tend to worship what people say, think, have, and do, with no regard towards God our Father! We want the riches, the stuff, the things, the power, the glory, the wisdom, the understanding, without having a relationship with God in humility. We must lay down the nonsense to also lay down the truth for all to see and understand that we worship God in truth, honesty, and thanks giving. Stuff and talent will fade like the vapors of life in time and your idols will turn into dust.

Lay

Men want to lay with women without getting married or having a commitment to raising a family with responsibilities, rules, obligations, schedules, regulations, and work. Your relationships you develop with your spouse, friends, and enemies are realistic examples of how your relationships will going with God when your heart is all about the money. Bring your “A” Game, not your money, lies, lust, wickedness, or lame ideas! The poor or rich man in heaven who was honest with God as a faithful servant, cannot help the dishonest rich or poor man in hell, who was disobedient.
Today’s Question
Why is it so hard to talk about the truth as we hide behind the money and excuse?

Leviticus 20

Punishments for Disobedience

20 The Lord said to Moses, “Give the people of Israel these instructions, which apply both to native Israelites and to the foreigners living in Israel.
“If any of them offer their children as a sacrifice to Molech, they must be put to death. The people of the community must stone them to death. I myself will turn against them and cut them off from the community, because they have defiled my sanctuary and brought shame on my holy name by offering their children to Molech. And if the people of the community ignore those who offer their children to Molech and refuse to execute them, I myself will turn against them and their families and will cut them off from the community. This will happen to all who commit spiritual prostitution by worshiping Molech.
“I will also turn against those who commit spiritual prostitution by putting their trust in mediums or in those who consult the spirits of the dead. I will cut them off from the community. So set yourselves apart to be holy, for I am the Lord your God. Keep all my decrees by putting them into practice, for I am the Lord who makes you holy.
“Anyone who dishonors[a] father or mother must be put to death. Such a person is guilty of a capital offense.
10 “If a man commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, both the man and the woman who have committed adultery must be put to death.
11 “If a man violates his father by having sex with one of his father’s wives, both the man and the woman must be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.
12 “If a man has sex with his daughter-in-law, both must be put to death. They have committed a perverse act and are guilty of a capital offense.
13 “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.
14 “If a man marries both a woman and her mother, he has committed a wicked act. The man and both women must be burned to death to wipe out such wickedness from among you.
15 “If a man has sex with an animal, he must be put to death, and the animal must be killed.
16 “If a woman presents herself to a male animal to have intercourse with it, she and the animal must both be put to death. You must kill both, for they are guilty of a capital offense.
17 “If a man marries his sister, the daughter of either his father or his mother, and they have sexual relations, it is a shameful disgrace. They must be publicly cut off from the community. Since the man has violated his sister, he will be punished for his sin.
18 “If a man has sexual relations with a woman during her menstrual period, both of them must be cut off from the community, for together they have exposed the source of her blood flow.
19 “Do not have sexual relations with your aunt, whether your mother’s sister or your father’s sister. This would dishonor a close relative. Both parties are guilty and will be punished for their sin.
20 “If a man has sex with his uncle’s wife, he has violated his uncle. Both the man and woman will be punished for their sin, and they will die childless.
21 “If a man marries his brother’s wife, it is an act of impurity. He has violated his brother, and the guilty couple will remain childless.
22 “You must keep all my decrees and regulations by putting them into practice; otherwise the land to which I am bringing you as your new home will vomit you out. 23 Do not live according to the customs of the people I am driving out before you. It is because they do these shameful things that I detest them. 24 But I have promised you, ‘You will possess their land because I will give it to you as your possession—a land flowing with milk and honey.’ I am the Lord your God, who has set you apart from all other people.
25 “You must therefore make a distinction between ceremonially clean and unclean animals, and between clean and unclean birds. You must not defile yourselves by eating any unclean animal or bird or creature that scurries along the ground. I have identified them as being unclean for you. 26 You must be holy because I, the Lord, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own.
27 “Men and women among you who act as mediums or who consult the spirits of the dead must be put to death by stoning. They are guilty of a capital offense.”

Love,

Jonathan
