Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“From the beginning, both Adam and Eve had a major problem dealing with God’s wealth, riches, integrity, and honor, because they chose to become disobedient, greedy, and evil, just like satan.” ~ Jon Barnes

Perfection

When perfection is not good enough, the richness of greed and evil has no limits and is doomed to the grave of hell forever, being full of pride, greed, lust, and lies. The obvious Truth of God is just not good enough, so the plot to overthrow God is always present in the small minds of human beings. The spirit of evil has been made for the day of evil and the Spirit of Good has been made for the Day of Good, which both falls on the same day.

Doomed

We have been doomed since the beginning of time because of our unbelief in God’s lifestyle of love, sharing, caring, and abundance management. Our sinful nature cannot handle the truth of God’s kindness, mercy, and free universal provisions and access to the wealth of life, gifts, and choices in which we were all created and born with. However, our choice to take and steal from God is written in the Scriptures of the Bible Stories to give you an accurate account of how foolish many have become and will be. 

Saved

Few will choose God’s lifestyle of honest love, peace, forgiveness, repentance, faithfulness, joyfulness, patience, long-suffering, self-control and meekness that is gentle and more powerful than anything we could comprehend. The Blood of Jesus, crucifixion death and resurrection saving Power is the method of repentance that God’s solution has mandated for mankind’s sacrifice and atonement for our sins. The Faith, Belief, and Works from the Connection of God’s Holy Spirit is the Stamp of Approval and Seal of Verification that few will hold onto, as they walk through the Gates of Heaven. No other path exists for My Kind, but through the hope of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, of whom God is well pleased.

Joshua 4 New Living Translation 

Memorials to the Jordan Crossing

When all the people had crossed the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, “Now choose twelve men, one from each tribe. Tell them, ‘Take twelve stones from the very place where the priests are standing in the middle of the Jordan. Carry them out and pile them up at the place where you will camp tonight.’”
So Joshua called together the twelve men he had chosen—one from each of the tribes of Israel. He told them, “Go into the middle of the Jordan, in front of the Ark of the Lord your God. Each of you must pick up one stone and carry it out on your shoulder—twelve stones in all, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. We will use these stones to build a memorial. In the future your children will ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ Then you can tell them, ‘They remind us that the Jordan River stopped flowing when the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant went across.’ These stones will stand as a memorial among the people of Israel forever.”
So the men did as Joshua had commanded them. They took twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan River, one for each tribe, just as the Lord had told Joshua. They carried them to the place where they camped for the night and constructed the memorial there.
Joshua also set up another pile of twelve stones in the middle of the Jordan, at the place where the priests who carried the Ark of the Covenant were standing. And they are there to this day.
10 The priests who were carrying the Ark stood in the middle of the river until all of the Lord’s commands that Moses had given to Joshua were carried out. Meanwhile, the people hurried across the riverbed. 11 And when everyone was safely on the other side, the priests crossed over with the Ark of the Lord as the people watched.
12 The armed warriors from the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh led the Israelites across the Jordan, just as Moses had directed.13 These armed men—about 40,000 strong—were ready for battle, and the Lordwas with them as they crossed over to the plains of Jericho.
14 That day the Lord made Joshua a great leader in the eyes of all the Israelites, and for the rest of his life they revered him as much as they had revered Moses.
15 The Lord had said to Joshua, 16 “Command the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant[a] to come up out of the riverbed.” 17 So Joshua gave the command.18 As soon as the priests carrying the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant came up out of the riverbed and their feet were on high ground, the water of the Jordan returned and overflowed its banks as before.
19 The people crossed the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month.[b] Then they camped at Gilgal, just east of Jericho. 20 It was there at Gilgal that Joshua piled up the twelve stones taken from the Jordan River.
21 Then Joshua said to the Israelites, “In the future your children will ask, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 22 Then you can tell them, ‘This is where the Israelites crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ 23 For the Lord your God dried up the river right before your eyes, and he kept it dry until you were all across, just as he did at the Red Sea[c] when he dried it up until we had all crossed over. 24 He did this so all the nations of the earth might know that the Lord’s hand is powerful, and so you might fear the Lord your God forever.”
Love,
Jonathan

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
