Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Someone has to be brilliant in your family, so why can’t it be you with Christ shining in your life!” ~ Jon Barnes

Rather

God would rather you be hot or cold, good or bad, in or out, but this fake Christianity, false stuff, and man-made religious stuff that God does not respect or honor will not hold up in The Court of Pearly Gates!  God would rather you follow Him, honor His ways, commandments, and laws through Jesus.

Interesting

Interestingly enough, most of us are always following our stuff and we try to sprinkle a little God Dust over us as a cover-up, self-made, man-made tactical approach to damage control, hypocrisy, and lies.  God’s Court System is bigger, better, and smarter than any court system in the Universe and beyond.  There are no hung juries in Heaven with God as the Supreme Court Justice!

Understands

Fortunately, God understands our moves, motives, madness, and He has the best solutions to all of our problems, but will we listen to Him?  God is the Chess Master and we are the pieces on the board.  According to History, mankind has been evil since the beginning of time and notice how badly we have treated each other. Notice that it is the Goodness of God that sustains humanity and not we ourselves.

Psalm 52

 

For the director of music. A maskil of David. When Doeg the Edomite had gone to Saul and told him: “David has gone to the house of Ahimelek.”

1 Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God? 
2 You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor. 
3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. 
4 You love every harmful word, you deceitful tongue! 
5 Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. 
6 The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at you, saying, 
7 “Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!” 
8 But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. 
9 For what you have done I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people. And I will hope in your name, for your name is good.

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Evil will take you on a journey and tour that looks so good on the outside, but in the end, the fire of eternity burns everything, including you forever.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Sight-Seeing

Set up your tours with Christ so that you can sightsee, enjoy, and love what you are doing for God.  Do the work with all of your heart and you will see the world from God’s perspective, helping others, and shining the light of God on the journey.

Guide

The Bible guides us through all of the places in the world telling us about the history and relevant information that you must read, share, and do during your personal life’s tour.  These guided post, landmarks, readings, and stories will apply to every aspect of your life so that you can see what not to do and what to do.

End

The responsibility of learning, growing, sharing, and loving God’s life tour is your job and should not be taken lightly.  Respect the tour, seeing all that you can with God guiding you and enjoy the beauty that is intended for you to see and experience.  Your reward for being obedient will be eternally out of this world.
Today’s Question
Are you enjoying your tour or are you being tortured by wickedness in high places?

2 Chronicles 21 

Jehoram Rules in Judah

21 When Jehoshaphat died, he was buried with his ancestors in the City of David. Then his son Jehoram became the next king.
Jehoram’s brothers—the other sons of Jehoshaphat—were Azariah, Jehiel, Zechariah, Azariahu, Michael, and Shephatiah; all these were the sons of Jehoshaphat king of Judah.[a]Their father had given each of them valuable gifts of silver, gold, and costly items, and also some of Judah’s fortified towns. However, he designated Jehoram as the next king because he was the oldest. But when Jehoram had become solidly established as king, he killed all his brothers and some of the other leaders of Judah.
Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years. But Jehoram followed the example of the kings of Israel and was as wicked as King Ahab, for he had married one of Ahab’s daughters. So Jehoram did what was evil in the Lord’s sight. But the Lord did not want to destroy David’s dynasty, for he had made a covenant with David and promised that his descendants would continue to rule, shining like a lamp forever.
During Jehoram’s reign, the Edomites revolted against Judah and crowned their own king.So Jehoram went out with his full army and all his chariots. The Edomites surrounded him and his chariot commanders, but he went out at night and attacked them[b] under cover of darkness. 10 Even so, Edom has been independent from Judah to this day. The town of Libnah also revolted about that same time. All this happened because Jehoram had abandoned the Lord, the God of his ancestors. 11 He had built pagan shrines in the hill country of Judah and had led the people of Jerusalem and Judah to give themselves to pagan gods and to go astray.
12 Then Elijah the prophet wrote Jehoram this letter:
“This is what the Lord, the God of your ancestor David, says: You have not followed the good example of your father, Jehoshaphat, or your grandfather King Asa of Judah.13 Instead, you have been as evil as the kings of Israel. You have led the people of Jerusalem and Judah to worship idols, just as King Ahab did in Israel. And you have even killed your own brothers, men who were better than you. 14 So now the Lord is about to strike you, your people, your children, your wives, and all that is yours with a heavy blow.15 You yourself will suffer with a severe intestinal disease that will get worse each day until your bowels come out.”
16 Then the Lord stirred up the Philistines and the Arabs, who lived near the Ethiopians,[c] to attack Jehoram. 17 They marched against Judah, broke down its defenses, and carried away everything of value in the royal palace, including the king’s sons and his wives. Only his youngest son, Ahaziah,[d] was spared.
18 After all this, the Lord struck Jehoram with an incurable intestinal disease. 19 The disease grew worse and worse, and at the end of two years it caused his bowels to come out, and he died in agony. His people did not build a great funeral fire to honor him as they had done for his ancestors.
20 Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years. No one was sorry when he died. They buried him in the City of David, but not in the royal cemetery.
Love,
Jonathan
