Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Do not rely on a last-ditch, last second, plea deal with God during the last breath and seconds of your life, to correct all the wrong you have lived in your life as if God doesn’t know the end of your fate.” ~ Jon Barnes

Be Honest

Being honest and praying to God to improve your faith is a lifestyle of repentance, good work, and fellowship with God because you love Him with all of your heart.  As in a marriage, true love will make the relationship work, last, and prosper. In a fake marriage or fake relationship with God, why would you cop a fake plea deal with the Creator Judge of All Things?

Right Know

Right now, I am happy to know the right truth in God by studying, learning, doing, helping, giving, and living out that commandments that God has given us to follow.  We do our best to focus and walk in the plans of God for our lives, serving others, being honest, and praying with repentance and thanksgiving in The Truth. This is the Right Know, for your life, Right Now! Take the Real Plea Deal, while you can.

Offer

Thankfully, God offers a way of escape for our ignorance and shortcomings. However, your continued rejection of the Plea Deal is on record with every “NO THANKS” you have placed and stamped on His Heavenly Salvation Offer, based on your unbelief and daily wicked actions.  Your clear rejection of God’s offer of salvation, repentance solution, and lifestyle package is clearly of no interest to you. I plead with you right now to make a change, not for my sake, but for your sake. Take the Plea Deal and enjoy God’s Honest Offer or live you lie!

Ruth 1 

Naomi Loses Her Husband and Sons

In the days when the judges ruled,[a] there was a famine in the land. So a man from Bethlehem in Judah, together with his wife and two sons, went to live for a while in the country of Moab. The man’s name was Elimelek, his wife’s name was Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Kilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem, Judah. And they went to Moab and lived there.
Now Elimelek, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons. They married Moabite women, one named Orpah and the other Ruth. After they had lived there about ten years, both Mahlon and Kilion also died, and Naomi was left without her two sons and her husband.

Naomi and Ruth Return to Bethlehem

When Naomi heard in Moab that the Lord had come to the aid of his people by providing food for them, she and her daughters-in-law prepared to return home from there. With her two daughters-in-law she left the place where she had been living and set out on the road that would take them back to the land of Judah.
Then Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go back, each of you, to your mother’s home. May the Lord show you kindness, as you have shown kindness to your dead husbands and to me. May the Lord grant that each of you will find restin the home of another husband.”
Then she kissed them goodbye and they wept aloud 10 and said to her, “We will go back with you to your people.”
11 But Naomi said, “Return home, my daughters. Why would you come with me? Am I going to have any more sons, who could become your husbands? 12 Return home, my daughters; I am too old to have another husband. Even if I thought there was still hope for me—even if I had a husband tonight and then gave birth to sons— 13 would you wait until they grew up? Would you remain unmarried for them? No, my daughters. It is more bitter for me than for you, because the Lord’s hand has turned against me!”
14 At this they wept aloud again. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law goodbye,but Ruth clung to her.
15 “Look,” said Naomi, “your sister-in-law is going back to her people and her gods. Go back with her.”
16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”18 When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her.
19 So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem. When they arrived in Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them, and the women exclaimed, “Can this be Naomi?”
20 “Don’t call me Naomi,[b]” she told them. “Call me Mara,[c] because the Almighty[d]has made my life very bitter. 21 I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The Lord has afflicted[e] me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.”
22 So Naomi returned from Moab accompanied by Ruth the Moabite, her daughter-in-law, arriving in Bethlehem as the barley harvest was beginning.
Love,
Jonathan

Roman Meal Scraps

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“It seems a bit strange and unfair to give God the little crumbs from the table of your Thanksgiving during our massively commercialized Christmas spending and gluttony.” ~ Jon Barnes

Crumb Cake Kindness

Not too long ago, I use to offer up my crumbs of Thanksgiving to God, after eating a full course meal at my table.  This would happen at each meal of my life until I realized that God is the food, cake, substance, order, water, air, life, and dirt that is used to sustain all of us and our existence. Scraps and crumbs of kindness, love, and substance are for a doG, not God!  Don’t let the devil fool you with dyslexic tendencies and symptoms with your kindness and Thanksgiving.

We Three Kings

Giving real quality gifts of good service can be a daily challenge, in a world full of takers, fakers, blind believers, phony, fast food faith-based posers, displaying laziness and no love works.  A Good King or average person of honest quality gives real gifts of honor and substance of love to God and all people around them.  They will follow the star of righteousness in their prayer closet, no matter how far one travels.

Milk This X

The details of your faith are between you and, God but the fruit of your salvation shines like the bright morning star.  God knows His loving Kids! X marks the spot to hit your target. So, why do we tend to milk it for all we can get, never giving of ourselves and doing what is best to hit the mark?  I finally had to make up my own mind to leave the milk, crumbs and cookies alone, so that I could chew and eat meat, like a man and king for God!

Romans 10New International Version (NIV)

10 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
Moses writes this about the righteousness that is by the law: “The person who does these things will live by them.”[a] But the righteousness that is by faith says: “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’”[b] (that is, to bring Christ down) “or ‘Who will descend into the deep?’”[c] (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[d] that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”[e] 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”[f]
14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”[g]
16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”[h] 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. 18 But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did:
“Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.”[i]
19 Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says,
“I will make you envious by those who are not a nation;
    I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding.”[j]
20 And Isaiah boldly says,
“I was found by those who did not seek me;
    I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.”[k]
21 But concerning Israel he says,
“All day long I have held out my hands
    to a disobedient and obstinate people.”[l]

Love,

Jonathan
