Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“When we pray, study, and follow God’s commandments and lifestyle, The Blood of Christ covers, washes, and keeps us  clean so that our character looks impeccable since our faith and works are connected to Jesus and the Will of God.” ~ Jon Barnes

Repugnance

God is never happy about our disobedient, inconsistent, or contradictory behavior, which is the opposite of His loving lifestyle that Christians are supposed to represent. It is extremely distasteful and unpleasant for Him to watch so many choose the path of unrighteousness, sin, lust, and greed over truth, justice, and love. God’s heart breaks just like ours when children are lost and have gone astray!

Honestly

Telling people the truth, immediately, will give them the power to choose the best, correct, and most helpful solution to their problems. Bad information does the opposite. Get to the point and you can still be nice. Then, you must get back to your own work so that others can work for themselves to figure out their own problems. God points us in the right direction, but we must take the steps to get to the destination of LOVE.

Destination

See that your GPS is still set to the proper destination by checking your navigational system, maps, compass, cell phone, or computer with God’s holy bible map. God’s navigations system is impeccable, infallible, and reliable so that you can never get lost. Let the bible do to the talking, leading, and directing of your steps and begin to think, act, and do what God has taught us from His Commandments and lifecycle.
Today’s Question
Did you know that God is perfect and He cannot lie, so you should listen to Him and do your work?

Joshua 17 

17 This was the allotment for the tribe of Manasseh as Joseph’s firstborn, that is, for Makir, Manasseh’s firstborn. Makir was the ancestor of the Gileadites, who had received Gilead and Bashan because the Makirites were great soldiers. So this allotment was for the rest of the people of Manasseh—the clans of Abiezer, Helek, Asriel, Shechem, Hepher and Shemida. These are the other male descendants of Manasseh son of Joseph by their clans.
Now Zelophehad son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Makir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons but only daughters, whose names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milkah and Tirzah. They went to Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the leaders and said, “The Lord commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our relatives.” So Joshua gave them an inheritance along with the brothers of their father, according to the Lord’s command. Manasseh’s share consisted of ten tracts of land besides Gilead and Bashan east of the Jordan, because the daughters of the tribe of Manasseh received an inheritance among the sons. The land of Gilead belonged to the rest of the descendants of Manasseh.
The territory of Manasseh extended from Asher to Mikmethath east of Shechem. The boundary ran southward from there to include the people living at En Tappuah. (Manasseh had the land of Tappuah, but Tappuah itself, on the boundary of Manasseh, belonged to the Ephraimites.) Then the boundary continued south to the Kanah Ravine. There were towns belonging to Ephraim lying among the towns of Manasseh, but the boundary of Manasseh was the northern side of the ravine and ended at the Mediterranean Sea. 10 On the south the land belonged to Ephraim, on the north to Manasseh. The territory of Manasseh reached the Mediterranean Sea and bordered Asher on the north and Issachar on the east.
11 Within Issachar and Asher, Manasseh also had Beth Shan, Ibleam and the people of Dor, Endor, Taanach and Megiddo, together with their surrounding settlements (the third in the list is Naphoth[a]).
12 Yet the Manassites were not able to occupy these towns, for the Canaanites were determined to live in that region. 13 However, when the Israelites grew stronger, they subjected the Canaanites to forced labor but did not drive them out completely.
14 The people of Joseph said to Joshua, “Why have you given us only one allotment and one portion for an inheritance? We are a numerous people, and the Lord has blessed us abundantly.”
15 “If you are so numerous,” Joshua answered, “and if the hill country of Ephraim is too small for you, go up into the forest and clear land for yourselves there in the land of the Perizzites and Rephaites.”
16 The people of Joseph replied, “The hill country is not enough for us, and all the Canaanites who live in the plain have chariots fitted with iron, both those in Beth Shan and its settlements and those in the Valley of Jezreel.”
17 But Joshua said to the tribes of Joseph—to Ephraim and Manasseh—“You are numerous and very powerful. You will have not only one allotment 18 but the forested hill country as well. Clear it, and its farthest limits will be yours; though the Canaanites have chariots fitted with iron and though they are strong, you can drive them out.”
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“A closed mind is the devil’s workshop because you have stopped communication with God, since you think that your ways and ideas are better than God’s Ways and Ideas.” ~ Jon Barnes

Road Block

We choose to agree or disagree with the solutions, plans, and cards that are dealt with us in life, but God can show you which way to go around the road blocks and stumbling blocks you will face. We continue to learn from God each step of the way, as He peels away the evil layers from our hearts.

Mind Block

As the heart becomes purer, the same blood of Jesus cleanses the arteries of the mind to allow you to listen and thinks about what God wants you to do. You will listen or you won’t. Stop blaming someone else for your problems. Own who you are, learn and improve from God to unblock and unlock the Mind.

Heart Block

If your heart is Blocked, you will not do the things that are good, which is the plan God has for your life. In your mind, your plan is the plan, just like the devil thinks.Your mind is closed because your heart is closed and there is no end in sight, but hell on earth and Hell in Hell!
Today’s Question
Are you willing to unblock your heart, mind, and mouth with garbage so that God’s Good Plans can flow or are you spiritually constipated?

Exodus 38

Building the Altar of Burnt Offering

38 Next Bezalel[a] used acacia wood to construct the square altar of burnt offering. It was 7 1⁄2 feet wide, 7 1⁄2 feet long, and 4 1⁄2 feet high.[b] He made horns for each of its four corners so that the horns and altar were all one piece. He overlaid the altar with bronze. Then he made all the altar utensils of bronze—the ash buckets, shovels, basins, meat forks, and firepans. Next he made a bronze grating and installed it halfway down the side of the altar, under the ledge. He cast four rings and attached them to the corners of the bronze grating to hold the carrying poles. He made the poles from acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze. He inserted the poles through the rings on the sides of the altar. The altar was hollow and was made from planks.

Building the Washbasin

Bezalel made the bronze washbasin and its bronze stand from bronze mirrors donated by the women who served at the entrance of the Tabernacle.[c]

Building the Courtyard

Then Bezalel made the courtyard, which was enclosed with curtains made of finely woven linen. On the south side the curtains were 150 feet long.[d] 10 They were held up by twenty posts set securely in twenty bronze bases. He hung the curtains with silver hooks and rings. 11 He made a similar set of curtains for the north side—150 feet of curtains held up by twenty posts set securely in bronze bases. He hung the curtains with silver hooks and rings. 12 The curtains on the west end of the courtyard were 75 feet long,[e] hung with silver hooks and rings and supported by ten posts set into ten bases. 13 The east end, the front, was also 75 feet long.
14 The courtyard entrance was on the east end, flanked by two curtains. The curtain on the right side was 22 1⁄2 feet long[f] and was supported by three posts set into three bases. 15 The curtain on the left side was also 22 1⁄2 feet long and was supported by three posts set into three bases. 16 All the curtains used in the courtyard were made of finely woven linen. 17 Each post had a bronze base, and all the hooks and rings were silver. The tops of the posts of the courtyard were overlaid with silver, and the rings to hold up the curtains were made of silver.
18 He made the curtain for the entrance to the courtyard of finely woven linen, and he decorated it with beautiful embroidery in blue, purple, and scarlet thread. It was 30 feet long, and its height was 7 1⁄2 feet,[g] just like the curtains of the courtyard walls. 19 It was supported by four posts, each set securely in its own bronze base. The tops of the posts were overlaid with silver, and the hooks and rings were also made of silver.
20 All the tent pegs used in the Tabernacle and courtyard were made of bronze.

Inventory of Materials

21 This is an inventory of the materials used in building the Tabernacle of the Covenant.[h] The Levites compiled the figures, as Moses directed, and Ithamar son of Aaron the priest served as recorder. 22 Bezalel son of Uri, grandson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made everything just as the Lord had commanded Moses.23 He was assisted by Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, a craftsman expert at engraving, designing, and embroidering with blue, purple, and scarlet thread on fine linen cloth.
24 The people brought special offerings of gold totaling 2,193 pounds,[i] as measured by the weight of the sanctuary shekel. This gold was used throughout the Tabernacle.
25 The whole community of Israel gave 7,545 pounds[j] of silver, as measured by the weight of the sanctuary shekel. 26 This silver came from the tax collected from each man registered in the census. (The tax is one beka, which is half a shekel,[k]based on the sanctuary shekel.) The tax was collected from 603,550 men who had reached their twentieth birthday. 27 The hundred bases for the frames of the sanctuary walls and for the posts supporting the inner curtain required 7,500 pounds of silver, about 75 pounds for each base.[l] 28 The remaining 45 pounds[m]of silver was used to make the hooks and rings and to overlay the tops of the posts.
29 The people also brought as special offerings 5,310 pounds[n] of bronze, 30 which was used for casting the bases for the posts at the entrance to the Tabernacle, and for the bronze altar with its bronze grating and all the altar utensils. 31 Bronze was also used to make the bases for the posts that supported the curtains around the courtyard, the bases for the curtain at the entrance of the courtyard, and all the tent pegs for the Tabernacle and the courtyard.
Love,
 
Jonathan

Forgive

bible-2167778_1920
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Be nice, forgive yourself for making mistakes and then forgive others as you ask God to forgive you, so you can move forward with your life, to grow in grace, mercy, and peace.” ~ Jon Barnes

Successful

Being honest, helpful and successful is about enjoying the love God has given you to share with others and monitoring the successful impact your good work, words, and wisdom has on loved ones, friends and strangers. You cannot do this while living in the past, carrying all of the hurt, disappointments, misunderstandings, and confusion from your heart into the next new great thing you should be doing. Stop hoarding the hate, which deteriorates your body, mind, faith, and soul. Love the truth with joy, even when you are wrong. Change and grow.

Growth

Giving and receiving great information helps us to challenge our thinking, motives, and quality of good work when we honestly communicate ideas, methods, and business plans for future goals and projects. Ask questions and talk to people. This self reflective education gives us a direction to point our energy, time, and resources into developing better ways of Godly productivity. Dump the fat from the hate and grow love muscles by exercising your faith, love, and patience practices. Share your love food and eat less.

Productivity

Share your experience by practicing your love talent with each family member, ideally in person, to reconnect, focus, love, and grow God’s business model.  How can you have a connection with God and you don’t have a real connection to your children, parents, family, friends, and enemies. Your love is fake and unproductive when life is played like a baseball game, with your focus only being on hitting home runs and out scoring everyone. Forgive yourself and others for striking out and making unforced errors. Loving God and each other makes us all obedient winners.
Today’s Question
Did you give up trying to communicate with your family, by not calling, visiting, or talking to them or is this your fake interpretation of God’s Love?

3 John

The elder,
To my dear friend Gaius, whom I love in the truth.
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. It gave me great joy when some believers came and testified about your faithfulness to the truth, telling how you continue to walk in it. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
Dear friend, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers and sisters,[a]even though they are strangers to you. They have told the church about your love. Please send them on their way in a manner that honors God. It was for the sake of the Name that they went out, receiving no help from the pagans. We ought therefore to show hospitality to such people so that we may work together for the truth.
I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will not welcome us.10 So when I come, I will call attention to what he is doing, spreading malicious nonsense about us. Not satisfied with that, he even refuses to welcome other believers. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church.
11 Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.12 Demetrius is well spoken of by everyone—and even by the truth itself. We also speak well of him, and you know that our testimony is true.
13 I have much to write you, but I do not want to do so with pen and ink. 14 I hope to see you soon, and we will talk face to face.
Peace to you. The friends here send their greetings. Greet the friends there by name.
Love,
Jonathan
