Generations

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“Generations of past and present: don’t pretend to be surprised and dismayed by the state of the world because you yourselves contributed to it through your fake communities, plastic morals, and absentee parenting.”~TB

Fake Communities

Instead of tilling the soil of your land and cultivating relationships with your neighbors, you foolishly opted to elect corrupt leaders whose sole purpose is to line their pockets by creating fake laws to enslave you. You blindly traded your inheritance for a nicely decorated cell of which you graciously accepted slave wages to aid in keeping up appearances. To comfort yourselves, you gladly accept the lies peddled by fake leaders who blame the poor and widowed for the state of your existence. You cast judgment and disdain on your vulnerable brothers and sisters while the corrupt help themselves to your wallets. There is no need for them to be subtle about it for you happily open your purse strings for them!

 

Plastic Morals

You fill the pews of churches ran by false teachers who lull you into a comforting slumber as if the title “Christian” alone brings you salvation. Then when these false teachers are exposed, you clutch your pearls in manufactured shock as if you didn’t know the truth. Your lives are based on these false teachings! In public, you sashay in pressed suits and beautiful dresses, crying ‘Praise God!’, pretending that you love the Lord. In private, you defile your bodies with strangers and your neighbor’s spouses, partaking in obscene images and practices, and giving into every depraved pleasure known to man. This does not bother you because, in your mind, it is all done in secret. Don’t be foolish! God knows all and He is not pleased.

Absentee Parenting

Your children watch everything you do and don’t do. Why are you surprised when they harden their hearts against you? While you were busy worshipping your true god– yourself– you left your parental responsibility to the world where the youth became indoctrinated by bastardized interpretations of love from a fallen world! Then you judge your children with your false christianity and blind eyes as if their behavior is the root cause of a damning problem. They are merely a symptom of your blatant disobedience!

Course Correction

If you feel sorrow and anguish for your wicked ways, repent and turn away from your shameful behavior. Only God can course correct an abandoned ship. Return to His mercy so that He may write true love on your hearts. Then, we can experience healing for generations to come. Friends, correction takes a harsh word. Like peroxide cleaning an infectious wound, God sends down his Biblical thunder to shake our waywardness loose. Take comfort in the fact that He is calling us home. Do not be part of the group that misses the rescue boat!

 

Question of the day

Who is more in contempt; the Charleton or the flock too lazy to realize they are being lead astray?

 

Enjoy the reading

Psalm 65

1 What mighty praise, O God, belongs to you in Zion. We will fulfill our vows to you, 2 for you answer our prayers. All of us must come to you. 3Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all. 4 What joy for those you choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts. What festivities await us inside your holy Temple. 5 You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas. 6 You formed the mountains by your power and armed yourself with mighty strength. 7 You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations. 8 Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy. 9 You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The river of God has plenty of water; it provides a bountiful harvest of grain, for you have ordered it so. 10 You drench the plowed ground with rain, melting the clods and leveling the ridges. You soften the earth with showers and bless its abundant crops. 11 You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance. 12The grasslands of the wilderness become a lush pasture, and the hillsides blossom with joy. 13 The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep, and the valleys are carpeted with grain. They all shout and sing for joy!

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
Evil is a weapon used by the devil to assist you in doing harm to your loved ones, if you disobey God!” ~ Jon Barnes

Why Not

Why not listen to the warnings and instructions that God gives us the first time, so that we can avoid pain, suffering, and anguish? Evil thoughts always come from the devil, so resist and he will flee. Make peace and love your family, neighbors, brothers and sisters, as you love yourself.

Disobey

God teaches us how to master sin, but we choose not to listen and follow His lifestyle and commandments. As a result, generations are affected by our pride, greed, lust, and evil ways. Crazy Kings and slave labor seem to be the standard narrative of old.

Obey

God rewards good behavior and hard, honest work ethics of His children who follow Him.  As a Dad, He is proud of you and your labor of love for the kingdom.  Keep up the Good Work of Faith and receive your reward after crossing the finish line. It is good to die as God’s humble servant, to become rich in Heaven forever. Why chase riches here on earth, which can be stolen, rot, or burn?

Genesis 4

Cain and Abel

Now Adam[a] had sexual relations with his wife, Eve, and she became pregnant. When she gave birth to Cain, she said, “With the Lord’s help, I have produced[b] a man!” Later she gave birth to his brother and named him Abel.
When they grew up, Abel became a shepherd, while Cain cultivated the ground.When it was time for the harvest, Cain presented some of his crops as a gift to the Lord. Abel also brought a gift—the best portions of the firstborn lambs from his flock. The Lord accepted Abel and his gift, but he did not accept Cain and his gift. This made Cain very angry, and he looked dejected.
“Why are you so angry?” the Lord asked Cain. “Why do you look so dejected?You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”
One day Cain suggested to his brother, “Let’s go out into the fields.”[c] And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother, Abel, and killed him.
Afterward the Lord asked Cain, “Where is your brother? Where is Abel?”
“I don’t know,” Cain responded. “Am I my brother’s guardian?”
10 But the Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground! 11 Now you are cursed and banished from the ground, which has swallowed your brother’s blood. 12 No longer will the ground yield good crops for you, no matter how hard you work! From now on you will be a homeless wanderer on the earth.”
13 Cain replied to the Lord, “My punishment[d] is too great for me to bear! 14 You have banished me from the land and from your presence; you have made me a homeless wanderer. Anyone who finds me will kill me!”
15 The Lord replied, “No, for I will give a sevenfold punishment to anyone who kills you.” Then the Lord put a mark on Cain to warn anyone who might try to kill him.16 So Cain left the Lord’s presence and settled in the land of Nod,[e] east of Eden.

The Descendants of Cain

17 Cain had sexual relations with his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Then Cain founded a city, which he named Enoch, after his son.18 Enoch had a son named Irad. Irad became the father of[f] Mehujael. Mehujael became the father of Methushael. Methushael became the father of Lamech.
19 Lamech married two women. The first was named Adah, and the second was Zillah. 20 Adah gave birth to Jabal, who was the first of those who raise livestock and live in tents. 21 His brother’s name was Jubal, the first of all who play the harp and flute. 22 Lamech’s other wife, Zillah, gave birth to a son named Tubal-cain. He became an expert in forging tools of bronze and iron. Tubal-cain had a sister named Naamah. 23 One day Lamech said to his wives,
“Adah and Zillah, hear my voice;
    listen to me, you wives of Lamech.
I have killed a man who attacked me,
    a young man who wounded me.
24 If someone who kills Cain is punished seven times,
    then the one who kills me will be punished seventy-seven times!”
 

Love,

Jonathan
