Hi Peeps,

“Are you singing to God from your heart of praise and worship or are your reciting the words, going through the motions with distractions of ulterior motives?” ~ Jon Barnes


Respect the gifts that God has given you by finding your voice in the will of God and working your talents to serve the kingdom and not your lust for fame, money, and fortune. God will make you famous in the job that He has for you to do because it will help enlighten all the people who know and come in contact with you. Your reputation will be full of God’s purpose and not your own. By honoring God, you honor your parents and following all of the commandments God has given us. In addition, you earn God’s Respect to pass His Tests. 


People tend to be lazy to use excuses, distractions, and issues of the past to cloud their judgment, waste their time, and become less effective in the ministry. Holding onto our hurts and not forgiving people is not the song you should be singing to God! Complaining is not worshiping God or helping to find solutions.  Stay focused on the songs of righteousness, which are sung from the fruit of the Spirit of God. Be quiet long enough to hear God’s Voice and rejoice in the joy of the Lord and what he has done for you.


We are not thankful when we complain and play the victim card with all of our problems that we created ourselves. When we don’t discipline ourselves to finish our own work, cooking good food, drinking water, exercising, resting, learning, cleaning, organizing, planning, and following God’s suggestions, we tend to find ourselves extremely unhappy, with all the stuff (junk) we have and hoard in our closets, houses, garages, and storage units. Sing unto God a new song of giving, sharing, caring, listening, learning, teaching, loving, and being content with God’s plan and not your own imaginations.
Today’s Question
Each day, do you spend at least 24 minutes praying, reading, meditating, listening, walking, or loving God and if not did you ask yourself who are you serving God or the devil?

Judges 17 

Micah’s Idols

17 Now a man named Micah from the hill country of Ephraim said to his mother, “The eleven hundred shekels[a] of silver that were taken from you and about which I heard you utter a curse—I have that silver with me; I took it.”
Then his mother said, “The Lord bless you, my son!”
When he returned the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, she said, “I solemnly consecrate my silver to the Lord for my son to make an image overlaid with silver. I will give it back to you.”
So after he returned the silver to his mother, she took two hundred shekels[b] of silver and gave them to a silversmith, who used them to make the idol. And it was put in Micah’s house.
Now this man Micah had a shrine, and he made an ephod and some household gods and installed one of his sons as his priest. In those days Israel had no king;everyone did as they saw fit.
A young Levite from Bethlehem in Judah, who had been living within the clan of Judah, left that town in search of some other place to stay. On his way[c] he came to Micah’s house in the hill country of Ephraim.
Micah asked him, “Where are you from?”
“I’m a Levite from Bethlehem in Judah,” he said, “and I’m looking for a place to stay.”
10 Then Micah said to him, “Live with me and be my father and priest, and I’ll give you ten shekels[d] of silver a year, your clothes and your food.” 11 So the Levite agreed to live with him, and the young man became like one of his sons to him.12 Then Micah installed the Levite, and the young man became his priest and lived in his house. 13 And Micah said, “Now I know that the Lord will be good to me, since this Levite has become my priest.”

“The Truth needs no apologies so enjoy your walk with God in Spirit and in Truth, with all the love you can spread around.” ~ Jon Barnes

Mistakes Made

We all make mistakes and when they are honest ones, God understands and will forgive your repentance, because He sees your true intentions.  It is the mistakes that are secretly and intentionally made that becomes questionable in your motives, understanding, and forward motion in Christ. Just as God is quick to see your honesty and reward you in heaven, He is just as quick to cast you down into the fiery pit of hell, if you believe God to be a fool.

Quickly Make

Make your adjustments daily so that you stay on track and in the Will of God by following His simple procedures and commandment for your Christian lifestyle.  Copy and do what God says, not what I think or say.  Let God be the beginning and end of your faith, belief, love, kindness,  and prayers.


Humility teaches you to be quiet and listen to the older generations so that you can benefit from their improvements and their mistakes. As a result, your ability to love grows in the direction of God’s Commandments of honoring your parents and doing God’s Will, not your will.
Today’s Question
Why are you standing in God’s way, hiding from the truth, by not doing the reading and work?

Judges 12 

Jephthah and Ephraim

12 The Ephraimite forces were called out, and they crossed over to Zaphon.They said to Jephthah, “Why did you go to fight the Ammonites without calling us to go with you? We’re going to burn down your house over your head.”
Jephthah answered, “I and my people were engaged in a great struggle with the Ammonites, and although I called, you didn’t save me out of their hands. When I saw that you wouldn’t help, I took my life in my hands and crossed over to fight the Ammonites, and the Lord gave me the victory over them. Now why have you come up today to fight me?”
Jephthah then called together the men of Gilead and fought against Ephraim. The Gileadites struck them down because the Ephraimites had said, “You Gileadites are renegades from Ephraim and Manasseh.” The Gileadites captured the fords of the Jordan leading to Ephraim, and whenever a survivor of Ephraim said, “Let me cross over,” the men of Gilead asked him, “Are you an Ephraimite?” If he replied, “No,” they said, “All right, say ‘Shibboleth.’” If he said, “Sibboleth,” because he could not pronounce the word correctly, they seized him and killed him at the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites were killed at that time.
Jephthah led[a] Israel six years. Then Jephthah the Gileadite died and was buried in a town in Gilead.

Ibzan, Elon and Abdon

After him, Ibzan of Bethlehem led Israel. He had thirty sons and thirty daughters. He gave his daughters away in marriage to those outside his clan, and for his sons he brought in thirty young women as wives from outside his clan. Ibzan led Israel seven years. 10 Then Ibzan died and was buried in Bethlehem.
11 After him, Elon the Zebulunite led Israel ten years. 12 Then Elon died and was buried in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun.
13 After him, Abdon son of Hillel, from Pirathon, led Israel. 14 He had forty sons and thirty grandsons, who rode on seventy donkeys. He led Israel eight years. 15 Then Abdon son of Hillel died and was buried at Pirathon in Ephraim, in the hill country of the Amalekites.

Customer Service

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“We all have something to buy, sell, or give as we try to close the deal, but few will honor the good customer service part of the contract, as many will hide, cheat, lie and pretend that it doesn’t exist and is not real with God” ~ Jon Barnes


The service you provide for God with your actions of faith will communicate the intentions of your heart and the wealth of knowledge you have learned from the scriptures. Your laziness and lack of following God’s directions will also expose your lack of faith and belief in God as well. Speaking of love and doing evil is not what true Christians do. Clearly communicate who you are so that others can properly follow your customer service for your own selfish wickedness or for God. 


It is written, you cannot fool God with your nonsense, yet people are easily misled because of their unbelief, lack of wisdom, and knowledge. The basic building blocks of God are often ignored because many people leave their bibles on the shelf, waiting for someone else to teach them about God’s love and lifestyle.  The beginning of God’s History is not interesting for them along with making heaven their future home with God. Your proof is in the spiritual connection to God with your customer service and lifestyle. 


We must respond to the customer service part of God’s contract, by reading and following the commandments in His series of life books, call the bible. The living proof of your daily actions will testify about your character and faith walk with God and your customer service record will be a character witness to the integrity of your lifestyle. Repentance is the free pass from God, but your faith and works are your access codes through Heaven’s Gate. Know your Bible access codes. 
Today’s Question
Are you committed to the truth and customer service part of God’s contract with your repentance and Christian lifestyle?

Joshua 9 

The Gibeonites Deceive Israel

Now all the kings west of the Jordan River heard about what had happened. These were the kings of the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, who lived in the hill country, in the western foothills,[a] and along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea[b] as far north as the Lebanon mountains. These kings combined their armies to fight as one against Joshua and the Israelites.
But when the people of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai,they resorted to deception to save themselves. They sent ambassadors to Joshua, loading their donkeys with weathered saddlebags and old, patched wineskins. They put on worn-out, patched sandals and ragged clothes. And the bread they took with them was dry and moldy. When they arrived at the camp of Israel at Gilgal, they told Joshua and the men of Israel, “We have come from a distant land to ask you to make a peace treaty with us.”
The Israelites replied to these Hivites, “How do we know you don’t live nearby? For if you do, we cannot make a treaty with you.”
They replied, “We are your servants.”
“But who are you?” Joshua demanded. “Where do you come from?”
They answered, “Your servants have come from a very distant country. We have heard of the might of the Lord your God and of all he did in Egypt. 10 We have also heard what he did to the two Amorite kings east of the Jordan River—King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan (who lived in Ashtaroth). 11 So our elders and all our people instructed us, ‘Take supplies for a long journey. Go meet with the people of Israel and tell them, “We are your servants; please make a treaty with us.”’
12 “This bread was hot from the ovens when we left our homes. But now, as you can see, it is dry and moldy. 13 These wineskins were new when we filled them, but now they are old and split open. And our clothing and sandals are worn out from our very long journey.”
14 So the Israelites examined their food, but they did not consult the Lord. 15 Then Joshua made a peace treaty with them and guaranteed their safety, and the leaders of the community ratified their agreement with a binding oath.
16 Three days after making the treaty, they learned that these people actually lived nearby! 17 The Israelites set out at once to investigate and reached their towns in three days. The names of these towns were Gibeon, Kephirah, Beeroth, and Kiriath-jearim. 18 But the Israelites did not attack the towns, for the Israelite leaders had made a vow to them in the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.
The people of Israel grumbled against their leaders because of the treaty. 19 But the leaders replied, “Since we have sworn an oath in the presence of the Lord, the God of Israel, we cannot touch them. 20 This is what we must do. We must let them live, for divine anger would come upon us if we broke our oath. 21 Let them live.” So they made them woodcutters and water carriers for the entire community, as the Israelite leaders directed.
22 Joshua called together the Gibeonites and said, “Why did you lie to us? Why did you say that you live in a distant land when you live right here among us? 23 May you be cursed! From now on you will always be servants who cut wood and carry water for the house of my God.”
24 They replied, “We did it because we—your servants—were clearly told that the Lord your God commanded his servant Moses to give you this entire land and to destroy all the people living in it. So we feared greatly for our lives because of you. That is why we have done this. 25 Now we are at your mercy—do to us whatever you think is right.”
26 So Joshua did not allow the people of Israel to kill them. 27 But that day he made the Gibeonites the woodcutters and water carriers for the community of Israel and for the altar of the Lord—wherever the Lord would choose to build it. And that is what they do to this day.

“Take a look at how God plays with His marbles in the Heavens (planets) so that you can get a better perspective of how amazing God is and honor the choices that He has given you with your marbles in your mind!” ~ Jon Barnes


Investigate the little things in life with faithfulness, truth, and justice to understand the chemistry of God’s DNA and molecular components. These components are used and designed for us to see God in all things, even though He is invisible to our senses. By design, God established all things to teach and test us with little things before he can bless us with eternity within Himself. As you read the Bible, enjoy your investigation to find out if you are a part of God’s Army.


I love God’s Chemistry but I hate the way people tend to teach things about God, so I had to study for myself to understand the Chemistry of God through His Writings, Words, and personal experiences.  His Works and message of Faith are True, simple and clear when you honestly do the reading and work yourself.  The problem is, many people will not learn about God’s periodic table of elements to see what sticks together! I use to have nightmares about Chemistry because the devil didn’t want me to understand or learn the 10 Commandments of God’s Chemistry.


We are all given a set of marbles to play with, learn, and master the laws, commandments, and stories about God and how things work in our world. God’s model of creation and provision expands as it recycles every particle in everything. Nothing is wasted in God or with God. Since God is an all-consuming fire, the Good burns go to heaven, but the Bad burns will feel the pains of hell, whose souls are not connected to God’s Salvation Plan and Chemistry Structure.
Today’s Question
Are you the right chemistry in God or did you fail the Chemistry Class?

Deuteronomy 27

The Altar on Mount Ebal

27 Then Moses and the leaders of Israel gave this charge to the people: “Obey all these commands that I am giving you today. When you cross the Jordan River and enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, set up some large stones and coat them with plaster. Write this whole body of instruction on them when you cross the river to enter the land the Lord your God is giving you—a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.When you cross the Jordan, set up these stones at Mount Ebal and coat them with plaster, as I am commanding you today.
“Then build an altar there to the Lord your God, using natural, uncut stones. You must not shape the stones with an iron tool. Build the altar of uncut stones, and use it to offer burnt offerings to the Lord your God. Also sacrifice peace offerings on it, and celebrate by feasting there before the Lord your God. You must clearly write all these instructions on the stones coated with plaster.”
Then Moses and the Levitical priests addressed all Israel as follows: “O Israel, be quiet and listen! Today you have become the people of the Lord your God. 10 So you must obey the Lord your God by keeping all these commands and decrees that I am giving you today.”

Curses from Mount Ebal

11 That same day Moses also gave this charge to the people: 12 “When you cross the Jordan River, the tribes of Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin must stand on Mount Gerizim to proclaim a blessing over the people.13 And the tribes of Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali must stand on Mount Ebal to proclaim a curse.
14 “Then the Levites will shout to all the people of Israel:
15 ‘Cursed is anyone who carves or casts an idol and secretly sets it up. These idols, the work of craftsmen, are detestable to the Lord.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
16 ‘Cursed is anyone who dishonors father or mother.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
17 ‘Cursed is anyone who steals property from a neighbor by moving a boundary marker.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
18 ‘Cursed is anyone who leads a blind person astray on the road.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
19 ‘Cursed is anyone who denies justice to foreigners, orphans, or widows.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
20 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with one of his father’s wives, for he has violated his father.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
21 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with an animal.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
22 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with his sister, whether she is the daughter of his father or his mother.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
23 ‘Cursed is anyone who has sexual intercourse with his mother-in-law.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
24 ‘Cursed is anyone who attacks a neighbor in secret.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
25 ‘Cursed is anyone who accepts payment to kill an innocent person.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
26 ‘Cursed is anyone who does not affirm and obey the terms of these instructions.’
And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’

“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


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.


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.


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.

“Many Smart people will go to hell because they are just too smart for God and His plans of faith in action and many dumb people will follow fools of smarts as well.”  ~ Jon Barnes


The devil is the master dummy, who would love to turn you into a living mummy, to follow into the fiery footsteps of fools, using the latest technology, tricks, and tools. Smarts become an afterthought for people burning up their time with worldly success and greed! Why should you burn twice? Would you like some grapes? Few will walk with God down His chosen path, whether you believe it or not, since you are so smart!


The master of worldly plantations will take many into the underground fire station pathway for a spot of molten hot tea and gnashing of teeth. Wide is the gate you see. There will be lots of music, moans, and wales, the sound of inmates digging with fingernails, trying to scratch and claw their way out of Hell. Oh Well? Time must tell to end the sin with a smell from the smoke that never ends. Fire for lungs can’t be much fun, burning up eternity from the insides of your soul of your own self made evil jail. The grapes will be ripe for the plantation party!


Would you like to be on permanent vacation, singing, playing, and swinging above the plantation, which will be separated by and invisible wall? No one can get in or out, except through the Pearly Gates, with God’s Grace, no matter how big or small. Did you sign up for your timeshare?  Should you care, God is right there to assist you right now in your time of need. By the end of this age, you will see, the pressing of plump grapes will be full and ripe to surely bleed.

Revelation 9

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).
12 The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.
13 The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God. 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”15 And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of the mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand. I heard their number.
17 The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. 18 A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths. 19 The power of the horses was in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails were like snakes, having heads with which they inflict injury.
20 The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.
