Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“When we learn to work together for the good of God’s Kingdom, then we will enjoy the benefits of God’s eternal blessings, which compares to nothing on earth.” ~ Jon Barnes

Organized

I agree that Organized Obedience is a good thing in God’s lifestyle and commandments. You must also have a committed, organized work schedule to complete daily tasks of faith in a timely, efficient, and effective manner. While cleaning up your mess, maintain schedules, and system checks with all of your assignments.  Balance your daily intake of good information, people, food, relaxation, hard work, fun, prayer, and focus on God’s plan throughout the day. Enjoy the organized journey of being flexible, while relying on God’s directed path for your life and the directions to get there.

Directed

God specifically directs each person into a place and space of time that connects His children to inspire, create, help, mentor, and complete His will on earth. God’s time and seasons of operation click with precision, persuasion,  persistence, and pure pleasure, when you notice, admire, and respect His movement and creation of clouds in the air– which is like the movement in your life. You do not direct your steps, either God does or you choose the wickedness of evil to guide you.

Tabled

The table you eat from is what you look like, smell like, act like, and become. One table is smelly, confused, uninformed, ignorant, hateful, sinful, greedy, evil, and full of pride; eating vomit, dung, and pig scraps of scavengers.  The other table is meek, humble, lovable, peaceful, kind, patient, and full of God’s fruit to eat, which is always juicy and ripe. It is your job to know and discern what you are eating and which table you are sitting at. Organize your life based on the Table of God, His grace, mercy, and provisions!
Today’s Question
Can you smell what you are eating?

Joshua 19 

Allotment for Simeon

19 The second lot came out for the tribe of Simeon according to its clans. Their inheritance lay within the territory of Judah. It included:
Beersheba (or Sheba),[a] Moladah, Hazar Shual, Balah, Ezem, Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah, Ziklag, Beth Markaboth, Hazar Susah, Beth Lebaoth and Sharuhen—thirteen towns and their villages;
Ain, Rimmon, Ether and Ashan—four towns and their villages— and all the villages around these towns as far as Baalath Beer (Ramah in the Negev).
This was the inheritance of the tribe of the Simeonites, according to its clans.The inheritance of the Simeonites was taken from the share of Judah, because Judah’s portion was more than they needed. So the Simeonites received their inheritance within the territory of Judah.

Allotment for Zebulun

10 The third lot came up for Zebulun according to its clans:
The boundary of their inheritance went as far as Sarid. 11 Going west it ran to Maralah, touched Dabbesheth, and extended to the ravine near Jokneam. 12 It turned east from Sarid toward the sunrise to the territory of Kisloth Tabor and went on to Daberath and up to Japhia. 13 Then it continued eastward to Gath Hepher and Eth Kazin; it came out at Rimmon and turned toward Neah. 14 There the boundary went around on the north to Hannathon and ended at the Valley of Iphtah El. 15 Included were Kattath, Nahalal, Shimron, Idalah and Bethlehem.There were twelve towns and their villages.
16 These towns and their villages were the inheritance of Zebulun, according to its clans.

Allotment for Issachar

17 The fourth lot came out for Issachar according to its clans. 18 Their territory included:
Jezreel, Kesulloth, Shunem, 19 Hapharaim, Shion, Anaharath, 20 Rabbith, Kishion, Ebez, 21 Remeth, En Gannim, En Haddah and Beth Pazzez. 22 The boundary touched Tabor, Shahazumah and Beth Shemesh, and ended at the Jordan. There were sixteen towns and their villages.
23 These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Issachar,according to its clans.

Allotment for Asher

24 The fifth lot came out for the tribe of Asher according to its clans. 25 Their territory included:
Helkath, Hali, Beten, Akshaph, 26 Allammelek, Amad and Mishal. On the west the boundary touched Carmel and Shihor Libnath. 27 It then turned east toward Beth Dagon, touched Zebulun and the Valley of Iphtah El, and went north to Beth Emek and Neiel, passing Kabul on the left. 28 It went to Abdon,[b] Rehob,Hammon and Kanah, as far as Greater Sidon. 29 The boundary then turned back toward Ramah and went to the fortified city of Tyre, turned toward Hosah and came out at the Mediterranean Sea in the region of Akzib, 30 Ummah, Aphek and Rehob. There were twenty-two towns and their villages.
31 These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Asher,according to its clans.

Allotment for Naphtali

32 The sixth lot came out for Naphtali according to its clans:
33 Their boundary went from Heleph and the large tree in Zaanannim, passing Adami Nekeb and Jabneel to Lakkum and ending at the Jordan. 34 The boundary ran west through Aznoth Tabor and came out at Hukkok. It touched Zebulun on the south, Asher on the west and the Jordan[c] on the east. 35 The fortified towns were Ziddim, Zer, Hammath, Rakkath, Kinnereth, 36 Adamah, Ramah, Hazor, 37 Kedesh, Edrei, En Hazor, 38 Iron, Migdal El, Horem, Beth Anathand Beth Shemesh. There were nineteen towns and their villages.
39 These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Naphtali, according to its clans.

Allotment for Dan

40 The seventh lot came out for the tribe of Dan according to its clans. 41 The territory of their inheritance included:
Zorah, Eshtaol, Ir Shemesh, 42 Shaalabbin, Aijalon, Ithlah, 43 Elon, Timnah,Ekron, 44 Eltekeh, Gibbethon, Baalath, 45 Jehud, Bene Berak, Gath Rimmon,46 Me Jarkon and Rakkon, with the area facing Joppa.
47 (When the territory of the Danites was lost to them, they went up and attacked Leshem, took it, put it to the sword and occupied it. They settled in Leshem and named it Dan after their ancestor.)
48 These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the tribe of Dan,according to its clans.

Allotment for Joshua

49 When they had finished dividing the land into its allotted portions, the Israelites gave Joshua son of Nun an inheritance among them, 50 as the Lord had commanded. They gave him the town he asked for—Timnath Serah[d] in the hill country of Ephraim. And he built up the town and settled there.
51 These are the territories that Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun and the heads of the tribal clans of Israel assigned by lot at Shiloh in the presence of the Lord at the entrance to the tent of meeting. And so they finished dividing the land.

Today’s Quote
“As you plan for the future into the next year, plan a little each day by reading, studying, and applying your homework and personal lessons about God, your Father, and Creator.” ~ Jon Barnes

Organization

I will stop wasting my time on things that are not good for me to think about or do, so that I may focus on the good things and opportunities God wants for me in my life, as I hope that includes you.  You can’t make people organize and do the right things for themselves. They have to want to do their own homework and improve with God’s love, mercy, and grace.  Old sins should be dead in your life so you can focus on fixing the new ones that you don’t know about.  We are all imperfect, but ask God for help in your daily walk in the right direction of your eternal future, today and each day you are given.

Imperfection

Just because you are imperfect doesn’t mean you can lie, cheat, and steal, your way into heaven. God’s connection with you and your life is a real one and if you don’t have it, you already know this.  Stop lying to yourself, pray, and ask God for the real connection and maintain your good standing with faith, good work, prayer, studying, and fasting. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you are yet still not connected. You cannot remain connected to God as a disobedient child of God, who pretends to have faith, with no evidence of love work in your lifestyle.

Makeup

Many people think that they can go to the store and buy some makeup to color their faces with a Christian look or buy a pair of shoes with special colors and Christian labels to pretend that God is walking with them.  When you die and knock on the door of heaven, know that God will reject people who habitually break the 10 Commandments with fake love and lies hidden in their hearts and lifestyle.  You cannot make up or falsify your personal relationship and walk with God. You are the Make Up and God Made Up your face with his own hands! You are beautiful and wonderfully made!
Today’s Question
Why are you using the devil’s fake makeup and clothing, when you should be clothed with God’s Holy Word, Work, and Spirit to connect to your Father, The Creator of Heaven, Earth, and All things?

Deuteronomy 23

Regulations concerning Worship

23 [a]“If a man’s testicles are crushed or his penis is cut off, he may not be admitted to the assembly of the Lord.
“If a person is illegitimate by birth, neither he nor his descendants for ten generations may be admitted to the assembly of the Lord.
“No Ammonite or Moabite or any of their descendants for ten generations may be admitted to the assembly of the Lord. These nations did not welcome you with food and water when you came out of Egypt. Instead, they hired Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in distant Aram-naharaim to curse you. But the Lord your God refused to listen to Balaam. He turned the intended curse into a blessing because the Lord your God loves you. As long as you live, you must never promote the welfare and prosperity of the Ammonites or Moabites.
“Do not detest the Edomites or the Egyptians, because the Edomites are your relatives and you lived as foreigners among the Egyptians. The third generation of Edomites and Egyptians may enter the assembly of the Lord.

Miscellaneous Regulations

“When you go to war against your enemies, be sure to stay away from anything that is impure.
10 “Any man who becomes ceremonially defiled because of a nocturnal emission must leave the camp and stay away all day. 11 Toward evening he must bathe himself, and at sunset he may return to the camp.
12 “You must have a designated area outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself. 13 Each of you must have a spade as part of your equipment. Whenever you relieve yourself, dig a hole with the spade and cover the excrement. 14 The camp must be holy, for the Lord your God moves around in your camp to protect you and to defeat your enemies. He must not see any shameful thing among you, or he will turn away from you.
15 “If slaves should escape from their masters and take refuge with you, you must not hand them over to their masters. 16 Let them live among you in any town they choose, and do not oppress them.
17 “No Israelite, whether man or woman, may become a temple prostitute. 18 When you are bringing an offering to fulfill a vow, you must not bring to the house of the Lord your God any offering from the earnings of a prostitute, whether a man[b] or a woman, for both are detestable to the Lord your God.
19 “Do not charge interest on the loans you make to a fellow Israelite, whether you loan money, or food, or anything else. 20 You may charge interest to foreigners, but you may not charge interest to Israelites, so that the Lord your God may bless you in everything you do in the land you are about to enter and occupy.
21 “When you make a vow to the Lord your God, be prompt in fulfilling whatever you promised him. For the Lord your God demands that you promptly fulfill all your vows, or you will be guilty of sin. 22 However, it is not a sin to refrain from making a vow. 23 But once you have voluntarily made a vow, be careful to fulfill your promise to the Lord your God.
24 “When you enter your neighbor’s vineyard, you may eat your fill of grapes, but you must not carry any away in a basket. 25 And when you enter your neighbor’s field of grain, you may pluck the heads of grain with your hand, but you must not harvest it with a sickle.
Love,
Jonathan

Fairness

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“We love God because He is our father and loved us first and as His sons and daughters, he will make sure we get what we deserve.” ~ Jon Barnes

Full

We cannot see the full story of the sea is a person’s life. Only God Can. God is more than fair when you look at the full story and study each episode in the bible and compare them to your sea and storms in life.  It takes time to comprehend the ways of love and how God test us to see if we do what we believe in our sea of life.  God knows if you believe in His full story of faith, love, and works of compassion.

Organization

Organize your oil of love so you do not waste it on the ground. Give your gifts of love and make sure your loved ones receive them from your hands.   Insist upon giving you free gifts of love from God so that all can see the love of God in your lifestyle. You cannot understand the future of your choices until the fullness of the new day comes. Finish each day well with good intentions.

Order

Allow God to order your structure, approach, and unique talent to flow into the sea of life. Your life is a painting of God, a one of a kind piece of art, like a snowflake, cloud, drop of water, or air molecule that filters and recycles to help others in the process. Order your priorities to match God’s ways and enjoy the peace of God’s Power, Love, and Purpose. Be content and share to let God fight your battles.
Today’s Question
Do you love God and others so that you may enjoy God’s Fairness and Righteousness or will you take matters into your own hands, as if God needs your help?

Genesis 34

Revenge against Shechem

34 One day Dinah, the daughter of Jacob and Leah, went to visit some of the young women who lived in the area. But when the local prince, Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, saw Dinah, he seized her and raped her. But then he fell in love with her, and he tried to win her affection with tender words. He said to his father, Hamor, “Get me this young girl. I want to marry her.”
Soon Jacob heard that Shechem had defiled his daughter, Dinah. But since his sons were out in the fields herding his livestock, he said nothing until they returned. Hamor, Shechem’s father, came to discuss the matter with Jacob.Meanwhile, Jacob’s sons had come in from the field as soon as they heard what had happened. They were shocked and furious that their sister had been raped. Shechem had done a disgraceful thing against Jacob’s family,[a] something that should never be done.
Hamor tried to speak with Jacob and his sons. “My son Shechem is truly in love with your daughter,” he said. “Please let him marry her. In fact, let’s arrange other marriages, too. You give us your daughters for our sons, and we will give you our daughters for your sons. 10 And you may live among us; the land is open to you! Settle here and trade with us. And feel free to buy property in the area.”
11 Then Shechem himself spoke to Dinah’s father and brothers. “Please be kind to me, and let me marry her,” he begged. “I will give you whatever you ask. 12 No matter what dowry or gift you demand, I will gladly pay it—just give me the girl as my wife.”
13 But since Shechem had defiled their sister, Dinah, Jacob’s sons responded deceitfully to Shechem and his father, Hamor. 14 They said to them, “We couldn’t possibly allow this, because you’re not circumcised. It would be a disgrace for our sister to marry a man like you! 15 But here is a solution. If every man among you will be circumcised like we are, 16 then we will give you our daughters, and we’ll take your daughters for ourselves. We will live among you and become one people. 17 But if you don’t agree to be circumcised, we will take her and be on our way.”
18 Hamor and his son Shechem agreed to their proposal. 19 Shechem wasted no time in acting on this request, for he wanted Jacob’s daughter desperately. Shechem was a highly respected member of his family, 20 and he went with his father, Hamor, to present this proposal to the leaders at the town gate.
21 “These men are our friends,” they said. “Let’s invite them to live here among us and trade freely. Look, the land is large enough to hold them. We can take their daughters as wives and let them marry ours. 22 But they will consider staying here and becoming one people with us only if all of our men are circumcised, just as they are. 23 But if we do this, all their livestock and possessions will eventually be ours. Come, let’s agree to their terms and let them settle here among us.”
24 So all the men in the town council agreed with Hamor and Shechem, and every male in the town was circumcised. 25 But three days later, when their wounds were still sore, two of Jacob’s sons, Simeon and Levi, who were Dinah’s full brothers, took their swords and entered the town without opposition. Then they slaughtered every male there, 26 including Hamor and his son Shechem. They killed them with their swords, then took Dinah from Shechem’s house and returned to their camp.
27 Meanwhile, the rest of Jacob’s sons arrived. Finding the men slaughtered, they plundered the town because their sister had been defiled there. 28 They seized all the flocks and herds and donkeys—everything they could lay their hands on, both inside the town and outside in the fields. 29 They looted all their wealth and plundered their houses. They also took all their little children and wives and led them away as captives.
30 Afterward Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, “You have ruined me! You’ve made me stink among all the people of this land—among all the Canaanites and Perizzites. We are so few that they will join forces and crush us. I will be ruined, and my entire household will be wiped out!”
31 “But why should we let him treat our sister like a prostitute?” they retorted angrily.

Love,

Jonathan
