Doublespeak

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“Be leery of people who paint their evil deeds as righteous choices. They are like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”~TB

Twisted Rhetoric

You arrogantly believe that you can fit God into your box of perversion, laziness, and idolatry. Instead of writing His Word on your hearts, you reject it, creating your own religion. You blindly adopt wicked and contemptible practices disguising your sin with words like “choice”, “freedom”, and “love”. Yet, you practice none of these things. You practice murder, laziness, and idolatry. Do whatever you want, but call it what it is! Your behaviors and practices are not of God.  Stop distorting the Truth for your own gain. Your doublespeak cannot save you from His wrath. Your evil ways have brought this on yourself.

Take Responsibility

You foolish people, you want to be free to sin, yet you don’t want the responsibility of your sinful deeds! How can you boast in your stupidity yet cry victim when it comes time to reap what you’ve sown? Then you kill and blame the innocent for your idiotic practices because you don’t want to drink the foul liquid you’ve poured. Stop justifying your actions with flimsy excuses. You were of “sound” mind when you committed sinful practices. But when you are caught, you claim to be ill. Oh, what a stupid and depraved nation this world has become. What is done in the dark will be brought into the light, so repent now or face the consequences come judgment day.

Today’s Question

Are you using doublespeak to justify your sin?

Psalm 108

1 My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart! 
2 Wake up, lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn with my song. 
3 I will thank you, LORD, among all the people. I will sing your praises among the nations. 
4 For your unfailing love is higher than the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. 
5 Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens. May your glory shine over all the earth. 
6 Now rescue your beloved people. Answer and save us by your power. 
7 God has promised this by his holiness : “I will divide up Shechem with joy. I will measure out the valley of Succoth. 
8 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh, too. Ephraim, my helmet, will produce my warriors, and Judah, my scepter, will produce my kings. 
9 But Moab, my washbasin, will become my servant, and I will wipe my feet on Edom and shout in triumph over Philistia.” 
10Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will bring me victory over Edom? 
11 Have you rejected us, O God? Will you no longer march with our armies? 
12 Oh, please help us against our enemies, for all human help is useless. 
13 With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes.

Price Point

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“There is a price point that you must pay to God for being obedient and disobedient because right before your very eyes, your life’s choices are a reflection of your ignorance, faith, love, and wisdom in God’s tennis match with humanity.” ~ Jon Barnes

Match Point

God will match your efforts with each honest step you take towards Him in doing the work of honest love. The balance that you receive from God, because of your good actions of faith and lifestyle practices will continue to bless, expand, and bring fruit to be shared each day of your life. Playing tennis with God is a fun way to learn his ways, allowing others to watch the game, which ministers to people in truth, integrity, and substance.

Mark Point

Each of these steps is a marking point of progress that slowly reveals to God your true intentions, actions, and movements of Faith in Him and not just in yourself. These actions are like picking up a tennis ball, throwing it up into the air, and giving it your best shot. Every ball you hit in the court, within the box, and into the direction of God is a real point that marks your true effort of reality with God, His Presence, and Love.

Service Point

The advantage you get by hanging out with God is so powerful that your humility and service matches your ethics and quality of effort in getting the right swing, speed, and placement upon the ball you serve or hit back to God.  He enjoys a good game and effort as your personal coach because His children are winners as they participate, follow the game rules, and enjoy the codes of conduct.
Today’s Question
Are you following the game rules and price points that are accurately consistent with the Bible in your daily walk?

Joshua 5

When all the Amorite kings west of the Jordan and all the Canaanite kings who lived along the Mediterranean coast[a] heard how the Lord had dried up the Jordan River so the people of Israel could cross, they lost heart and were paralyzed with fear because of them.

Israel Reestablishes Covenant Ceremonies

At that time the Lord told Joshua, “Make flint knives and circumcise this second generation of Israelites.[b] So Joshua made flint knives and circumcised the entire male population of Israel at Gibeath-haaraloth.[c]
Joshua had to circumcise them because all the men who were old enough to fight in battle when they left Egypt had died in the wilderness. Those who left Egypt had all been circumcised, but none of those born after the Exodus, during the years in the wilderness, had been circumcised. The Israelites had traveled in the wilderness for forty years until all the men who were old enough to fight in battle when they left Egypt had died. For they had disobeyed the Lord, and the Lord vowed he would not let them enter the land he had sworn to give us—a land flowing with milk and honey. So Joshua circumcised their sons—those who had grown up to take their fathers’ places—for they had not been circumcised on the way to the Promised Land. After all the males had been circumcised, they rested in the camp until they were healed.
Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the shame of your slavery in Egypt.” So that place has been called Gilgal[d] to this day.
10 While the Israelites were camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, they celebrated Passover on the evening of the fourteenth day of the first month.[e]11 The very next day they began to eat unleavened bread and roasted grain harvested from the land. 12 No manna appeared on the day they first ate from the crops of the land, and it was never seen again. So from that time on the Israelites ate from the crops of Canaan.

The Lord’s Commander Confronts Joshua

13 When Joshua was near the town of Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with sword in hand. Joshua went up to him and demanded, “Are you friend or foe?”
14 “Neither one,” he replied. “I am the commander of the Lord’s army.”
At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?”
15 The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did as he was told.
Love,
Jonathan
