Nearness

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“God will be as near or far as you want Him to be.”

TB

Choice

God gave each of us the free will to make the decisions for our lives. Some may choose to have a relationship with Him and some may deny His sovereignty, but the Truth remains, it’s our choice to seek God. If you want a life without God, He will allow it. If you desire to walk with Him, He will allow that also.

Distance

No matter your choice, God is true to His word. If you come before Him with a humble heart, He will welcome you into His flock. Even if you’ve wandered out into the wilderness, if you call out, He will answer. Even in the seasons where you can’t seem to find Him, He’s right there. That’s because God never leaves, we do. We leave when we follow our fleshly desires. We leave when we put ourselves above Christ. Fortunately for us, God is only one repentant call away.

Today’s Question

Did you know God’s place in your life is your choice?

Ezekiel 21

1 Then this message came to me from the LORD : 2 “Son of man, turn and face Jerusalem and prophesy against Israel and her sanctuaries. 3 Tell her, ‘This is what the LORD says: I am your enemy, O Israel, and I am about to unsheath my sword to destroy your people—the righteous and the wicked alike. 4 Yes, I will cut off both the righteous and the wicked! I will draw my sword against everyone in the land from south to north. 5 Everyone in the world will know that I am the LORD . My sword is in my hand, and it will not return to its sheath until its work is finished.’ 6 “Son of man, groan before the people! Groan before them with bitter anguish and a broken heart. 7 When they ask why you are groaning, tell them, ‘I groan because of the terrifying news I have heard. When it comes true, the boldest heart will melt with fear; all strength will disappear. Every spirit will faint; strong knees will become as weak as water. And the Sovereign LORD says: It is coming! It’s on its way!’” 8 Then the LORD said to me, 9 “Son of man, give the people this message from the Lord: “A sword, a sword is being sharpened and polished. 10 It is sharpened for terrible slaughter and polished to flash like lightning! Now will you laugh? Those far stronger than you have fallen beneath its power! 11 Yes, the sword is now being sharpened and polished; it is being prepared for the executioner. 12 “Son of man, cry out and wail; pound your thighs in anguish, for that sword will slaughter my people and their leaders— everyone will die! 13 It will put them all to the test. What chance do they have? says the Sovereign LORD . 14 “Son of man, prophesy to them and clap your hands. Then take the sword and brandish it twice, even three times, to symbolize the great massacre, the great massacre facing them on every side. 15 Let their hearts melt with terror, for the sword glitters at every gate. It flashes like lightning and is polished for slaughter! 16 O sword, slash to the right, then slash to the left, wherever you will, wherever you want. 17 I, too, will clap my hands, and I will satisfy my fury. I, the LORD, have spoken!” 18 Then this message came to me from the LORD : 19 “Son of man, make a map and trace two routes on it for the sword of Babylon’s king to follow. Put a signpost on the road that comes out of Babylon where the road forks into two— 20 one road going to Ammon and its capital, Rabbah, and the other to Judah and fortified Jerusalem. 21 The king of Babylon now stands at the fork, uncertain whether to attack Jerusalem or Rabbah. He calls his magicians to look for omens. They cast lots by shaking arrows from the quiver. They inspect the livers of animal sacrifices. 22 The omen in his right hand says, ‘Jerusalem!’ With battering rams his soldiers will go against the gates, shouting for the kill. They will put up siege towers and build ramps against the walls. 23 The people of Jerusalem will think it is a false omen, because of their treaty with the Babylonians. But the king of Babylon will remind the people of their rebellion. Then he will attack and capture them. 24 “Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Again and again you remind me of your sin and your guilt. You don’t even try to hide it! In everything you do, your sins are obvious for all to see. So now the time of your punishment has come! 25 “O you corrupt and wicked prince of Israel, your final day of reckoning is here! 26 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “Take off your jeweled crown, for the old order changes. Now the lowly will be exalted, and the mighty will be brought down. 27 Destruction! Destruction! I will surely destroy the kingdom. And it will not be restored until the one appears who has the right to judge it. Then I will hand it over to him. 28 “And now, son of man, prophesy concerning the Ammonites and their mockery. Give them this message from the Sovereign LORD : “A sword, a sword is drawn for your slaughter. It is polished to destroy, flashing like lightning! 29 Your prophets have given false visions, and your fortune-tellers have told lies. The sword will fall on the necks of the wicked for whom the day of final reckoning has come. 30 “Now return the sword to its sheath, for in your own country, the land of your birth, I will pass judgment upon you. 31 I will pour out my fury on you and blow on you with the fire of my anger. I will hand you over to cruel men who are skilled in destruction. 32 You will be fuel for the fire, and your blood will be spilled in your own land. You will be utterly wiped out, your memory lost to history, for I, the LORD, have spoken!”

Grace & Space

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“Give people the space and grace to grow and develop in Christ”~TB

Space

Don’t compare the development of your relationship with Christ to the relationship He has with others. Everyone grows and develops at their own pace. For this reason, you must give yourself and your brothers and sisters in Christ space and time to till their soil. People are not meant to be ingratiated 24/7 as you need quiet to hear what God has to say. If you’re too busy listening and following others, you’re ignoring the voice of your Heavenly Father. Give yourself space to hear, heal, and grow with God.

 

Grace

Because sin will always be a part of the human experience, grace has to be freely and quickly extended. As we still continually struggle with this concept, believe that God has your back as you walk in that grace by faith. We will undoubtedly cause offense and quarrels amongst one another. It’s ok, we’re human and Rome wasn’t built in a day. This is why walking with God is so important every second of every day. Grace cannot be earned, so forgive as God forgives us.

Today’s Question

Are you using and walking in your space and Grace on a daily basis?

Psalm 135

1 Praise the LORD ! Praise the name of the LORD ! Praise him, you who serve the LORD, 
2 you who serve in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God. 
3 Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; celebrate his lovely name with music. 
4 For the LORD has chosen Jacob for himself, Israel for his own special treasure. 
5 I know the greatness of the LORD — that our Lord is greater than any other god. 
6 The LORD does whatever pleases him throughout all heaven and earth, and on the seas and in their depths. 
7 He causes the clouds to rise over the whole earth. He sends the lightning with the rain and releases the wind from his storehouses. 
8 He destroyed the firstborn in each Egyptian home, both people and animals. 
9 He performed miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt against Pharaoh and all his people. 
10 He struck down great nations and slaughtered mighty kings— 
11 Sihon king of the Amorites, Og king of Bashan, and all the kings of Canaan. 
12 He gave their land as an inheritance, a special possession to his people Israel. 
13 Your name, O LORD, endures forever; your fame, O LORD, is known to every generation.
14 For the LORD will give justice to his people and have compassion on his servants. 
15 The idols of the nations are merely things of silver and gold, shaped by human hands. 
16 They have mouths but cannot speak, and eyes but cannot see. 
17 They have ears but cannot hear, and mouths but cannot breathe. 
18 And those who make idols are just like them, as are all who trust in them. 
19 O Israel, praise the LORD ! O priests—descendants of Aaron—praise the LORD ! 
20 O Levites, praise the LORD ! All you who fear the LORD, praise the LORD ! 
21 The LORD be praised from Zion, for he lives here in Jerusalem. Praise the LORD !

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The sounds of silent vibrations hold the true meanings of your intentions to let God know who you really are in Him and they account for your existence, destiny before, during, and after time, space, and age of ages.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Feel

I feel that you cannot comprehend what God is saying unless you allow Him to teach you all things.  If not, you will read and know God’s words and works, but you will still be evil and not comprehend Good.  If not, you will hear, understand and know that good new but you will adamantly reject God’s Truth and replace it with your own truth.  I feel there is hope if you do the listening and work of faith in love, by talking less.

Vibrate

Who you are vibrates in the continuous loop of time, space, matter, math, and logic to God in His Own Language of Wisdom that surpasses any understanding, as you are without excuse for knowing and understanding who God is!  Your foolishness consumes and destroys your own soul with your own actions of vibrations before you speak a word or do work.  Follow God’s vibrations of love and light from His Word and you will be the salt of the earth, singing and living with joy.

Become

Become and develop your true vibrations in God before the devil steals them from you, based on your acceptance to the team of evil.  Resist the temptation of disobedience, sin, and mayhem.  Become the Child in Christ with your consent and constant deeds of repentance, acceptance, work, and faith in God that vibrates your name into the Book of Life, with the Blood of Christ in ink.
Today’s Question
Is your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life or did your vibrations erase your name from God’s true destination for your soul?

Job 33 

Elihu Presents His Case against Job

33 “Listen to my words, Job;
    pay attention to what I have to say.
Now that I have begun to speak,
    let me continue.
I speak with all sincerity;
    I speak the truth.
For the Spirit of God has made me,
    and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Answer me, if you can;
    make your case and take your stand.
Look, you and I both belong to God.
    I, too, was formed from clay.
So you don’t need to be afraid of me.
    I won’t come down hard on you.
“You have spoken in my hearing,
    and I have heard your very words.
You said, ‘I am pure; I am without sin;
    I am innocent; I have no guilt.
10 God is picking a quarrel with me,
    and he considers me his enemy.
11 He puts my feet in the stocks
    and watches my every move.’
12 “But you are wrong, and I will show you why.
    For God is greater than any human being.
13 So why are you bringing a charge against him?
    Why say he does not respond to people’s complaints?
14 For God speaks again and again,
    though people do not recognize it.
15 He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night,
    when deep sleep falls on people
    as they lie in their beds.
16 He whispers in their ears
    and terrifies them with warnings.
17 He makes them turn from doing wrong;
    he keeps them from pride.
18 He protects them from the grave,
    from crossing over the river of death.
19 “Or God disciplines people with pain on their sickbeds,
    with ceaseless aching in their bones.
20 They lose their appetite
    for even the most delicious food.
21 Their flesh wastes away,
    and their bones stick out.
22 They are at death’s door;
    the angels of death wait for them.
23 “But if an angel from heaven appears—
    a special messenger to intercede for a person
    and declare that he is upright—
24 he will be gracious and say,
‘Rescue him from the grave,
    for I have found a ransom for his life.’
25 Then his body will become as healthy as a child’s,
    firm and youthful again.
26 When he prays to God,
    he will be accepted.
And God will receive him with joy
    and restore him to good standing.
27 He will declare to his friends,
‘I sinned and twisted the truth,
    but it was not worth it.[a]
28 God rescued me from the grave,
    and now my life is filled with light.’
29 “Yes, God does these things
    again and again for people.
30 He rescues them from the grave
    so they may enjoy the light of life.
31 Mark this well, Job. Listen to me,
    for I have more to say.
32 But if you have anything to say, go ahead.
    Speak, for I am anxious to see you justified.
33 But if not, then listen to me.
    Keep silent and I will teach you wisdom!”

Love,

Jonathan
