“There’s a reason why fear is a main tactic of the devil. It’s effective, unless you double down on the truth.”~TB
The devil will implement all types of lies and situations to get you fearful of your destiny. Like a pretend boogeyman, he’ll get you to avert your gaze from the Lord and onto your fears. Friends, this is merely a distraction ploy. Fear is such a visceral and powerful emotion, but it holds no bearing on the truth. Yes, the feeling of fear is very real, but the reality of its effects are only as real as you allow them to be. The devil is banking on you to cower in a corner because if you turn on the light with the truth, you’d see there is nothing actually there. The truth is your friend and guiding light. Lean into it!
The truth is that while bad things happen, we can overcome them. The only person that wins when you lose heart is the opposition. Friends, I implore you to look closely at your fears. They are not serving you, they are hindering you. God has and will continue to be a guiding force, but only if you let Him. This is where the Bible really comes in handy. When you read on a consistent basis, you will see that people have faced and endured hardships since the dawn of time. Granted, the battlefield has transferred from the land and into our thoughts. Be vigilant in what you feed your mind. Let the word of God guide you in times of fear so you can avoid the fake taunts of an inconsequential boogeyman.
Have you read the Bible to light your way or are you still believing the lies of a boogeyman?

1When the LORD brought back his exiles to Jerusalem, it was like a dream!
2We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy. And the other nations said, “What amazing things the LORD has done for them.”
3Yes, the LORD has done amazing things for us! What joy!
4Restore our fortunes, LORD, as streams renew the desert.
5Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy.
6They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.

36 Elihu continued speaking:
2 “Let me go on, and I will show you the truth. For I have not finished defending God! 3 I will present profound arguments for the righteousness of my Creator. 4 I am telling you nothing but the truth, for I am a man of great knowledge.
5 “God is mighty, but he does not despise anyone! He is mighty in both power and understanding. 6 He does not let the wicked live but gives justice to the afflicted. 7 He never takes his eyes off the innocent, but he sets them on thrones with kings and exalts them forever. 8 If they are bound in chains and caught up in a web of trouble, 9 he shows them the reason. He shows them their sins of pride. 10 He gets their attention and commands that they turn from evil.
11 “If they listen and obey God, they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant. 12 But if they refuse to listen to him, they will cross over the river of death, dying from lack of understanding. 13 For the godless are full of resentment. Even when he punishes them, they refuse to cry out to him for help. 14 They die when they are young, after wasting their lives in immoral living. 15 But by means of their suffering, he rescues those who suffer. For he gets their attention through adversity.
16 “God is leading you away from danger, Job, to a place free from distress. He is setting your table with the best food. 17 But you are obsessed with whether the godless will be judged. Don’t worry, judgment and justice will be upheld. 18 But watch out, or you may be seduced by wealth.[a] Don’t let yourself be bribed into sin. 19 Could all your wealth[b] or all your mighty efforts keep you from distress? 20 Do not long for the cover of night, for that is when people will be destroyed.[c] 21 Be on guard! Turn back from evil, for God sent this suffering to keep you from a life of evil.
Elihu Reminds Job of God’s Power
22 “Look, God is all-powerful. Who is a teacher like him? 23 No one can tell him what to do, or say to him, ‘You have done wrong.’ 24 Instead, glorify his mighty works, singing songs of praise. 25 Everyone has seen these things, though only from a distance.
26 “Look, God is greater than we can understand. His years cannot be counted. 27 He draws up the water vapor and then distills it into rain. 28 The rain pours down from the clouds, and everyone benefits. 29 Who can understand the spreading of the clouds and the thunder that rolls forth from heaven? 30 See how he spreads the lightning around him and how it lights up the depths of the sea. 31 By these mighty acts he nourishes[d] the people, giving them food in abundance. 32 He fills his hands with lightning bolts and hurls each at its target. 33 The thunder announces his presence; the storm announces his indignant anger.[e]
“Good Things happen when you work on your job and not get easily distracted on other people’s business and problems.” ~ Jon Barnes
You can offer solutions to people who are interested in the truth of your good work, but you can’t make people eat right, exercise, sleep and maintain their bodies. They have to do this work for themselves.
The evidence of practical solutions working in the lives of people becomes obvious, as they raise their kids with the same mind set, work ethics, and morals. Use these Good Things to build your family brand and band a better bond of love that is surrounded by God’s protection, grace, mercy, and blessings.
Interested parties should apply at the repentance desk office and speak to the Holy Spirit to confirm your appointed visit, orientation, bible study class, reading, praying, fasting, and working in the fields. Selected candidates will be paid eternally well for their services. Interested parties need only apply in person.

Plans for the Incense Altar
30 “Then make another altar of acacia wood for burning incense.2 Make it 18 inches square and 36 inches high,[a] with horns at the corners carved from the same piece of wood as the altar itself.3 Overlay the top, sides, and horns of the altar with pure gold, and run a gold molding around the entire altar.4 Make two gold rings, and attach them on opposite sides of the altar below the gold molding to hold the carrying poles.5 Make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold.6 Place the incense altar just outside the inner curtain that shields the Ark of the Covenant,[b] in front of the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—that covers the tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant.[c] I will meet with you there.
7 “Every morning when Aaron maintains the lamps, he must burn fragrant incense on the altar.8 And each evening when he lights the lamps, he must again burn incense in the Lord’s presence. This must be done from generation to generation.9 Do not offer any unholy incense on this altar, or any burnt offerings, grain offerings, or liquid offerings.
10 “Once a year Aaron must purify[d] the altar by smearing its horns with blood from the offering made to purify the people from their sin. This will be a regular, annual event from generation to generation, for this is the Lord’s most holy altar.”
Money for the Tabernacle
11 Then the Lord said to Moses,12 “Whenever you take a census of the people of Israel, each man who is counted must pay a ransom for himself to the Lord. Then no plague will strike the people as you count them.13 Each person who is counted must give a small piece of silver as a sacred offering to the Lord. (This payment is half a shekel,[e] based on the sanctuary shekel, which equals twenty gerahs.)14 All who have reached their twentieth birthday must give this sacred offering to the Lord.15 When this offering is given to the Lord to purify your lives, making you right with him,[f] the rich must not give more than the specified amount, and the poor must not give less.16 Receive this ransom money from the Israelites, and use it for the care of the Tabernacle.[g] It will bring the Israelites to the Lord’s attention, and it will purify your lives.”
Plans for the Washbasin
17 Then the Lord said to Moses,18 “Make a bronze washbasin with a bronze stand. Place it between the Tabernacle and the altar, and fill it with water.19 Aaron and his sons will wash their hands and feet there.20 They must wash with water whenever they go into the Tabernacle to appear before the Lord and when they approach the altar to burn up their special gifts to the Lord—or they will die!21 They must always wash their hands and feet, or they will die. This is a permanent law for Aaron and his descendants, to be observed from generation to generation.”
The Anointing Oil
22 Then the Lord said to Moses,23 “Collect choice spices—12 1⁄2 pounds of pure myrrh, 6 1⁄4 pounds of fragrant cinnamon, 6 1⁄4 pounds of fragrant calamus,[h]24 and 12 1⁄2 pounds of cassia[i]—as measured by the weight of the sanctuary shekel. Also get one gallon of olive oil.[j]25 Like a skilled incense maker, blend these ingredients to make a holy anointing oil.26 Use this sacred oil to anoint the Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant,27 the table and all its utensils, the lampstand and all its accessories, the incense altar,28 the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the washbasin with its stand.29 Consecrate them to make them absolutely holy. After this, whatever touches them will also become holy.
30 “Anoint Aaron and his sons also, consecrating them to serve me as priests.31 And say to the people of Israel, ‘This holy anointing oil is reserved for me from generation to generation.32 It must never be used to anoint anyone else, and you must never make any blend like it for yourselves. It is holy, and you must treat it as holy.33 Anyone who makes a blend like it or anoints someone other than a priest will be cut off from the community.’”
34 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Gather fragrant spices—resin droplets, mollusk shell, and galbanum—and mix these fragrant spices with pure frankincense, weighed out in equal amounts.35 Using the usual techniques of the incense maker, blend the spices together and sprinkle them with salt to produce a pure and holy incense.36 Grind some of the mixture into a very fine powder and put it in front of the Ark of the Covenant,[k] where I will meet with you in the Tabernacle. You must treat this incense as most holy.37 Never use this formula to make this incense for yourselves. It is reserved for the Lord, and you must treat it as holy.38 Anyone who makes incense like this for personal use will be cut off from the community.”
“Evil may appear to look good, yet it’s nasty smell and beauty of imagery quickly fades away, leaving truth and love to stand alone with time in it’s hands.” ~ Jon Barnes
Your beauty cannot be copied, given, or altered, but it is the image of the source, which is given to each of us, by God. The time you spend doing good works of faith paints images of your beauty inside the heart of God, creating music excepts and compositions in Heaven. God’s precious gifts are not for sale.
From the crown on your head lie an invisible glow of honor, respect, and focus to execute Beauty in love with your words and works, because God gave you the authority to represent Him honestly in ways that are wonderfully pure, simply to the point. The shadow of the Al Mighty covers and protects your beautiful soul, from the crown of your head to the soul of you feet.
The many precious jewels God has given us from the fruit of the Spirit shoots rays of light in all directions, like a twinkling star in the night. The devil wants to steal them from you with lies, distractions, divergence, and fake disasters. But God’s true believers have protection about them, with their prayers of faith, rich in action, shooting at the devil daily, instantly, consistently. This nonstop prayer, praise, and purpose are the New Testament of Love in our hearts that connects us to God and covers us with the Blood of Christ with redemption, repentance, and recompense that never fades away.
Are you soul(ed) out of God’s Beauty, because you are looking in the mirror of pride, make up, and fake beauty?

2 Peter 1
1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:
2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
Confirming One’s Calling and Election
3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters,[a] make every effort to confirm your callingand election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble,11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Prophecy of Scripture
12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have.13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body,14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.
16 For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.17 He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”[b]18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things.21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit
