Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Rotate, log, blog, and be thankful for your daily actions you do so that you can see the progress God has given to you and your family.” ~ Jon Barnes

Opposite

You will notice the negative and positive things you do and say all of the time when you log and pay attention to what you personally say, do, and think each day. This is not rocket science. Your progress or digress becomes surprisingly obvious because the facts of what you do, say, save, and spend will hold you more accountable to yourself and to God. This will help you to see your personal accounts, so that you may move and grow in the right direction. Pay close attention to the negative things that you hold dearly too, get rid of them and replace old ways with better new ways of positive thinking from God.

Personal

Personal reflection should happen on a daily basis to analyze your biblical threads of wisdom in your daily walk with God.  Your actions should walk along the lines of good work and daily production to inspire yourself to walk the narrow path with God. By focusing on your biblical reading and threads from each story, you will decree and discern the proper amount of discipline that is required to master good skills.  You don’t have to overdo it. Just be honest. Teaching these good skills to your family as they watch and learn from you is more important than people realize. Or are you just a fraud, fake, a person like the wicked many?

Realization

The realization of blessing on your family and life becomes obvious in the great choices that you make each day to fight the devil as you rotate your strategies, plans, and biblical stories to fit your needs and the needs of others.  God speaks to you through these stories so that you already know the plans of the devil and how to succeed, before you walk down the wrong road.  Many people are fighting battles that are not there battles to fight and they are wasting away in a self-made black hole of darkness, substance abuse, negative behavior, and self-indulgence. Study your biblical content carefully so that you have some substance to rotate and think about in your life!
Today’s Question
 
Are you rotating your thinking around the wisdom of God and His Holy Lifestyle or are you rotating your destiny around your flawed thinking?

Deuteronomy 18

Gifts for the Priests and Levites

18 “Remember that the Levitical priests—that is, the whole of the tribe of Levi—will receive no allotment of land among the other tribes in Israel. Instead, the priests and Levites will eat from the special gifts given to the Lord, for that is their share. They will have no land of their own among the Israelites. The Lord himself is their special possession, just as he promised them.
“These are the parts the priests may claim as their share from the cattle, sheep, and goats that the people bring as offerings: the shoulder, the cheeks, and the stomach. You must also give to the priests the first share of the grain, the new wine, the olive oil, and the wool at shearing time. For the Lord your God chose the tribe of Levi out of all your tribes to minister in the Lord’s name forever.
“Suppose a Levite chooses to move from his town in Israel, wherever he is living, to the place the Lord chooses for worship. He may minister there in the name of the Lord his God, just like all his fellow Levites who are serving the Lord there. He may eat his share of the sacrifices and offerings, even if he also receives support from his family.

A Call to Holy Living

“When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. 10 For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering.[a] And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft,11 or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord. It is because the other nations have done these detestable things that the Lord your God will drive them out ahead of you. 13 But you must be blameless before the Lord your God.14 The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the Lord your God forbids you to do such things.”

True and False Prophets

15 Moses continued, “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him. 16 For this is what you yourselves requested of the Lord your God when you were assembled at Mount Sinai.[b] You said, ‘Don’t let us hear the voice of the Lord our God anymore or see this blazing fire, for we will die.’
17 “Then the Lord said to me, ‘What they have said is right. 18 I will raise up a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I command him. 19 I will personally deal with anyone who will not listen to the messages the prophet proclaims on my behalf. 20 But any prophet who falsely claims to speak in my name or who speaks in the name of another god must die.’
21 “But you may wonder, ‘How will we know whether or not a prophecy is from the Lord?’ 22 If the prophet speaks in the Lord’s name but his prediction does not happen or come true, you will know that the Lord did not give that message. That prophet has spoken without my authority and need not be feared.
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
The power of God’s Words caries and commands the same unbridled, unlimited, matchless, force, weight, and truth in love, which creates, maintains, and builds all things before, during, and after a time, times, time!

Target practice

 
God has to have a realistic fake model dummy for you to practice your CPR training to pass and gain admittance into heaven. You cannot get your Holy Spirit certified CPR (Christ Public Relationship) card from God, unless you practice each day and maintain your certification card and target practice routines of true love. Are you a dummy for target practice, working for satan or are you practicing love for God?

Armed

 
Focus your positive fear on God, who is able to save your soul, if you obey Him. Reverence, Praise, Reference, and Worship Our Father, who is in Heaven, right now and forever more. This is the silent atomic bomb that only God has, which is given to you, by the Spirit of God, that vibrates beyond human intelligence and measurement. Don’t arm yourselves with fake bullets from the devil.

Dangerous

Smile and laugh at your fears when you are doing God’s work and following His lifestyle Lessons.  There is no danger in living for God and dying with the love of God in your heart, as an obedient servant of God. It becomes dangerous when the devil has confused you with the cares of this world, which made you stop caring about God and his purpose of love that you should be sharing with Him and other people in this life!
Today’s Question
Can you hide your sin from God’s target practice sights, trying to hide in your evil  darkness from the light?

John 13

Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet

13 It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
“Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”
10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

18 “I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: ‘He who shared my bread has turned[a] against me.’[b]
19 “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am who I am. 20 Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.”
21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.”
22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”
25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”
26 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas,the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him.
So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” 28 But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. 29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor. 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial

31 When he was gone, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in him. 32 If God is glorified in him,[c] God will glorify the Son in himself,and will glorify him at once.
33 “My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
36 Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?”
Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.”
37 Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”
38 Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
Love,
Jonathan

 

Secret

censorship-610101_1920

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Only God has secrets, knowledge, and access to passwords and pass codes that will change your life, save your soul, and help others.” ~ Jon Barnes

Knowledge

We conveniently forget what we know so that we can make up an excuse to not obey God’s love, laws, and living arrangements.  While walking the path of confusion, we cling to secret lies of deception to deliver our personal message of hidden agendas, greed, lust, and pride. God can see that we know the truth, yet we pretend to be ignorant. You know better. Your access is off-line. This shouldn’t be a revelation to you.

Password

Your first breath is your password to use God’s computer of life and the breast milk is the food of knowledge and wisdom used to operate the secret system.  No instructions of language code use to brief or train infants on how to extract milk to digest. You already knew the secret codes. We know what is right and understand the functions of God’s love. We know the truth, but we forget our password intentionally to keep God’s access cut off from our lifestyle. People hook up,  live together, and buy houses, but they don’t get married first? Operator error.

Access

Even though we all have equal access to the resources that God has provided, evil has taken control over our common sense to share, help, save, and manage God’s Good Gifts of life. We repent, yet we don’t mean it.  We give, but we want something in return.  We save, yet hunger is among us. We love, but is doesn’t last. Our failure to stay connected to God stems from using the off switch we have created to hide God in a secret closet, until we need Him; like fake fathers hiding from their kid’s lives. We reap, but we do not sow?
Today’s Question
Do you realize that there is no secret you can hide from God, so why not be honest and let God save your life and soul?

Revelation 1

Prologue

The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it,because the time is near.

Greetings and Doxology

John,
To the seven churches in the province of Asia:
Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits[a] before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.
“Look, he is coming with the clouds,”[b]
    and “every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him”;
    and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”[c]
So shall it be! Amen.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

John’s Vision of Christ

I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit,and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11 which said: “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum,Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.”
12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lamp stands, 13 and among the lamp stands was someone like a son of man,[d] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword.His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
19 “Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later. 20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lamp stands is this: The seven stars are the angels[e] of the seven churches, and the seven lamp stands are the seven churches.
Love,
Jonathan
