Rejection

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote
“When you accept bad choices, thinking that they were good choices, you are evil because you are lazy and don’t respect God’s Good ideas and suggestions.” ~ Jon Barnes

Even

Even I don’t like listening to God’s Good advice, yet I do anyway, since in my heart, I know God has the right answers and I do not. I tell myself that God’s ways are even and my ways are naturally odd. When I share God’s ways and view, even I am rejected often. Even I use to take advantage of other people and their bad choices. Reject negative thinking and actions that contradicts God’s Love.

Odd

Oddly enough, I have always picked the wrong answers until, I started doing the good work o love from God Perspective. Most of us only care about our agenda, perspective, wants, and needs. We don’t care about the feelings and needs of others, especially God’s feelings and needs. When I listen to God, the negative stuff in my life turns out to work for my good, because I was obedient and listened; rather than pretending to be smart with all of the answers!

Statistics

If you follow your own pride 100% of the time, you will be wrong 100% of the time. If you follow the love of God, you will master the effects of sin in you life and make better choices. Pay attention to what God is saying and doing so that you stop following your own advice and opinions, which are evil or lacking. You opinion doesn’t count and will be rejected, since it is not full of love and God’s Character. Practice being quiet and you’ll become 100% smarter, while following God’s love to clean out your own room, house, or garage in life!

Genesis 26

Isaac Deceives Abimelech

26 A severe famine now struck the land, as had happened before in Abraham’s time. So Isaac moved to Gerar, where Abimelech, king of the Philistines, lived.
The Lord appeared to Isaac and said, “Do not go down to Egypt, but do as I tell you. Live here as a foreigner in this land, and I will be with you and bless you. I hereby confirm that I will give all these lands to you and your descendants,[a] just as I solemnly promised Abraham, your father. I will cause your descendants to become as numerous as the stars of the sky, and I will give them all these lands. And through your descendants all the nations of the earth will be blessed. I will do this because Abraham listened to me and obeyed all my requirements, commands, decrees, and instructions.” So Isaac stayed in Gerar.
When the men who lived there asked Isaac about his wife, Rebekah, he said, “She is my sister.” He was afraid to say, “She is my wife.” He thought, “They will kill me to get her, because she is so beautiful.” But some time later, Abimelech, king of the Philistines, looked out his window and saw Isaac caressing Rebekah.
Immediately, Abimelech called for Isaac and exclaimed, “She is obviously your wife! Why did you say, ‘She is my sister’?”
“Because I was afraid someone would kill me to get her from me,” Isaac replied.
10 “How could you do this to us?” Abimelech exclaimed. “One of my people might easily have taken your wife and slept with her, and you would have made us guilty of great sin.”
11 Then Abimelech issued a public proclamation: “Anyone who touches this man or his wife will be put to death!”

Conflict over Water Rights

12 When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the Lord blessed him. 13 He became a very rich man, and his wealth continued to grow. 14 He acquired so many flocks of sheep and goats, herds of cattle, and servants that the Philistines became jealous of him.15 So the Philistines filled up all of Isaac’s wells with dirt. These were the wells that had been dug by the servants of his father, Abraham.
16 Finally, Abimelech ordered Isaac to leave the country. “Go somewhere else,” he said, “for you have become too powerful for us.”
17 So Isaac moved away to the Gerar Valley, where he set up their tents and settled down. 18 He reopened the wells his father had dug, which the Philistines had filled in after Abraham’s death. Isaac also restored the names Abraham had given them.
19 Isaac’s servants also dug in the Gerar Valley and discovered a well of fresh water. 20 But then the shepherds from Gerar came and claimed the spring. “This is our water,” they said, and they argued over it with Isaac’s herdsmen. So Isaac named the well Esek (which means “argument”). 21 Isaac’s men then dug another well, but again there was a dispute over it. So Isaac named it Sitnah (which means “hostility”). 22 Abandoning that one, Isaac moved on and dug another well. This time there was no dispute over it, so Isaac named the place Rehoboth (which means “open space”), for he said, “At last the Lord has created enough space for us to prosper in this land.”
23 From there Isaac moved to Beersheba, 24 where the Lord appeared to him on the night of his arrival. “I am the God of your father, Abraham,” he said. “Do not be afraid, for I am with you and will bless you. I will multiply your descendants, and they will become a great nation. I will do this because of my promise to Abraham, my servant.” 25 Then Isaac built an altar there and worshiped the Lord. He set up his camp at that place, and his servants dug another well.

Isaac’s Covenant with Abimelech

26 One day King Abimelech came from Gerar with his adviser, Ahuzzath, and also Phicol, his army commander. 27 “Why have you come here?” Isaac asked. “You obviously hate me, since you kicked me off your land.”
28 They replied, “We can plainly see that the Lord is with you. So we want to enter into a sworn treaty with you. Let’s make a covenant. 29 Swear that you will not harm us, just as we have never troubled you. We have always treated you well, and we sent you away from us in peace. And now look how the Lord has blessed you!”
30 So Isaac prepared a covenant feast to celebrate the treaty, and they ate and drank together. 31 Early the next morning, they each took a solemn oath not to interfere with each other. Then Isaac sent them home again, and they left him in peace.
32 That very day Isaac’s servants came and told him about a new well they had dug. “We’ve found water!” they exclaimed. 33 So Isaac named the well Shibah (which means “oath”). And to this day the town that grew up there is called Beersheba (which means “well of the oath”).
34 At the age of forty, Esau married two Hittite wives: Judith, the daughter of Beeri, and Basemath, the daughter of Elon. 35 But Esau’s wives made life miserable for Isaac and Rebekah.
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,

 

Today’s Quote

Stay ready in the greeting mode of good work and service so that you can deflect the negative darts thrown at you unexpectedly throughout the day.

Darts

You will throw less darts with your negative words and works when you learn to recognize and feel the pain you caused. Don’t let a dart get through your smile, positive attitude, words, and deeds to pinch your skin, face or eye.  Let your defense system of love reject all the evil that is thrown your way, melting hate with kindness.

Home Runs

Play ball at home and practice your communication pitch with the people in front of you. Unplug and talk with them, spend quality time, you know what to do. Greet work with play and pray with every swing you take. Do the work as if God is talking to you with every move you make. Repent and slide into your first love with God. Hold on to that love, everything else is fake!

Paradise

You are not rich because of your money, so change your focus to God. Use your tools better than the fools, as you manage, reflect, and travel abroad. God’s richness in life, love, truth, and liberty, cannot be confused or confined to the small compounds of your mind to understand eternity. See the moment, into the matter with God, who holds paradise and time. Greetings from God with your ticket to Heaven is your Gold and Goal of Goodness and Faithfulness.
Today’s Question
Did you go back to the Truth of Victory, from God that is in your hand or did you let it escape from your heart and replaced it with the cares of the world in devil’s land?

Revelation 3

To the Church in Sardis

“To the angel[a] of the church in Sardis write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits[b] of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. The one who is victoriouswill, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

To the Church in Philadelphia

“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David.What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

To the Church in Laodicea

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne,just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote

“Since Hell is hotter and everlasting, Rejection is unpleasant, yet necessary to Purge Evil to permanently burn in its proper facility, prepared by God, like the shining sun.” ~ Jon Barnes

The Purge

Each day as I say the Lord’s Prayer, I am reminded of how much God loves and provide all things for us to learn, grow, share, and care for each other.  People who are not interested in Loving God will automatically purge themselves from the redemption and rest that is prepared for us in Heaven.

Reminder

I am gently reminded of the fact that God chose all of us unto His Rest, yet many will refuse the invitation to His Will, Wedding, Reception, and Permanent Vacation Spot! I don’t want to miss this cruise of a lifetime, that happens to be permanent and paid in full by the Blood of Jesus used to atone for our sins.

Repentance

Each day I repent and try to fix a new problem, improve my ability to love, and forgive other people and their faults. We should all show kindness, meekness, humility, compassion, and gentleness with God’s mercy, grace, and love– which is why we believe in God– who gives us all Good Things Freely.  Why Reject This Truth?
Today’s Question
Did you Reject The Truth of God and are you prepared for permanent Judgement, Hell, and Rejection?

2 Thessalonians 3

Request for Prayer

As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith. But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command. May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.

Warning Against Idleness

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching[a] you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate. 10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”
11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat. 13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.
14 Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed. 15 Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.

Final Greetings

16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
17 I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand, which is the distinguishing mark in all my letters. This is how I write.
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
Love,
Jonathan
