“When we pray, study, and follow God’s commandments and lifestyle, The Blood of Christ covers, washes, and keeps us  clean so that our character looks impeccable since our faith and works are connected to Jesus and the Will of God.” ~ Jon Barnes

Repugnance

God is never happy about our disobedient, inconsistent, or contradictory behavior, which is the opposite of His loving lifestyle that Christians are supposed to represent. It is extremely distasteful and unpleasant for Him to watch so many choose the path of unrighteousness, sin, lust, and greed over truth, justice, and love. God’s heart breaks just like ours when children are lost and have gone astray!

Honestly

Telling people the truth, immediately, will give them the power to choose the best, correct, and most helpful solution to their problems. Bad information does the opposite. Get to the point and you can still be nice. Then, you must get back to your own work so that others can work for themselves to figure out their own problems. God points us in the right direction, but we must take the steps to get to the destination of LOVE.

Destination

See that your GPS is still set to the proper destination by checking your navigational system, maps, compass, cell phone, or computer with God’s holy bible map. God’s navigations system is impeccable, infallible, and reliable so that you can never get lost. Let the bible do to the talking, leading, and directing of your steps and begin to think, act, and do what God has taught us from His Commandments and lifecycle.
Today’s Question
Did you know that God is perfect and He cannot lie, so you should listen to Him and do your work?

Joshua 17 

17 This was the allotment for the tribe of Manasseh as Joseph’s firstborn, that is, for Makir, Manasseh’s firstborn. Makir was the ancestor of the Gileadites, who had received Gilead and Bashan because the Makirites were great soldiers. So this allotment was for the rest of the people of Manasseh—the clans of Abiezer, Helek, Asriel, Shechem, Hepher and Shemida. These are the other male descendants of Manasseh son of Joseph by their clans.
Now Zelophehad son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Makir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons but only daughters, whose names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milkah and Tirzah. They went to Eleazar the priest, Joshua son of Nun, and the leaders and said, “The Lord commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our relatives.” So Joshua gave them an inheritance along with the brothers of their father, according to the Lord’s command. Manasseh’s share consisted of ten tracts of land besides Gilead and Bashan east of the Jordan, because the daughters of the tribe of Manasseh received an inheritance among the sons. The land of Gilead belonged to the rest of the descendants of Manasseh.
The territory of Manasseh extended from Asher to Mikmethath east of Shechem. The boundary ran southward from there to include the people living at En Tappuah. (Manasseh had the land of Tappuah, but Tappuah itself, on the boundary of Manasseh, belonged to the Ephraimites.) Then the boundary continued south to the Kanah Ravine. There were towns belonging to Ephraim lying among the towns of Manasseh, but the boundary of Manasseh was the northern side of the ravine and ended at the Mediterranean Sea. 10 On the south the land belonged to Ephraim, on the north to Manasseh. The territory of Manasseh reached the Mediterranean Sea and bordered Asher on the north and Issachar on the east.
11 Within Issachar and Asher, Manasseh also had Beth Shan, Ibleam and the people of Dor, Endor, Taanach and Megiddo, together with their surrounding settlements (the third in the list is Naphoth[a]).
12 Yet the Manassites were not able to occupy these towns, for the Canaanites were determined to live in that region. 13 However, when the Israelites grew stronger, they subjected the Canaanites to forced labor but did not drive them out completely.
14 The people of Joseph said to Joshua, “Why have you given us only one allotment and one portion for an inheritance? We are a numerous people, and the Lord has blessed us abundantly.”
15 “If you are so numerous,” Joshua answered, “and if the hill country of Ephraim is too small for you, go up into the forest and clear land for yourselves there in the land of the Perizzites and Rephaites.”
16 The people of Joseph replied, “The hill country is not enough for us, and all the Canaanites who live in the plain have chariots fitted with iron, both those in Beth Shan and its settlements and those in the Valley of Jezreel.”
17 But Joshua said to the tribes of Joseph—to Ephraim and Manasseh—“You are numerous and very powerful. You will have not only one allotment 18 but the forested hill country as well. Clear it, and its farthest limits will be yours; though the Canaanites have chariots fitted with iron and though they are strong, you can drive them out.”
Love,
Jonathan

100% Proof

Evidence
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“We must prove with our faith and actions that God exists in our lives as we live our days in honesty, integrity, and self-worth with God, as He opens up the doors for us to walk through.” ~ Jon Barnes

Seemingly

Many give the impression that they have a secure knowledge of who God is, with an understanding of faith, without doing any homework, reading, or daily practice in their belief. On the surface, it looks like progress is being made, but in their hearts, nothing is there. They do not know God because of their wicked behavior and lifestyle.

Security

Love holds onto the truth about God and it teaches the fruit of the Spirit, with practical everyday movements and actions of wisdom, understanding, and good works. These actions of love taste like good fruit to be harvested, eaten, and shared with others, so that they can learn how to plant, sow, grow, harvest, and reap a reward for their hard work, which is good. 

Proof

God continues to prove Himself to all of us who want to know His Love with faith, hope, and action.  It is hard to sit still with the truth in your heart and say nothing to help others. If your fruit is not right, then people will not eat it. When you share good tasting fruit, people will receive it. What they do with the fruit is out of your control and God will be the judge. Your job is to deliver the 100% Proof of God’s Love and pass out the fruit.
Today’s Question
Is your love 100% Proof or are you too busy arguing your personal point of view with rotten fruit?

Joshua 12 

Kings Defeated East of the Jordan

12 These are the kings east of the Jordan River who had been killed by the Israelites and whose land was taken. Their territory extended from the Arnon Gorge to Mount Hermon and included all the land east of the Jordan Valley.[a]
King Sihon of the Amorites, who lived in Heshbon, was defeated. His kingdom included Aroer, on the edge of the Arnon Gorge, and extended from the middle of the Arnon Gorge to the Jabbok River, which serves as a border for the Ammonites. This territory included the southern half of the territory of Gilead. Sihon also controlled the Jordan Valley and regions to the east—from as far north as the Sea of Galilee to as far south as the Dead Sea,[b] including the road to Beth-jeshimoth and southward to the slopes of Pisgah.
King Og of Bashan, the last of the Rephaites, lived at Ashtaroth and Edrei. He ruled a territory stretching from Mount Hermon to Salecah in the north and to all of Bashan in the east, and westward to the borders of the kingdoms of Geshur and Maacah. This territory included the northern half of Gilead, as far as the boundary of King Sihon of Heshbon.
Moses, the servant of the Lord, and the Israelites had destroyed the people of King Sihon and King Og. And Moses gave their land as a possession to the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.

Kings Defeated West of the Jordan

The following is a list of the kings that Joshua and the Israelite armies defeated on the west side of the Jordan, from Baal-gad in the valley of Lebanon to Mount Halak, which leads up to Seir. (Joshua gave this land to the tribes of Israel as their possession, including the hill country, the western foothills,[c] the Jordan Valley, the mountain slopes, the Judean wilderness, and the Negev. The people who lived in this region were the Hittites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.) These are the kings Israel defeated:
The king of Jericho

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“We tend to resist the good fruits, vegetables, nuts, and water, that we need to eat and drink from the bible because, we have to recognize how, when, where, and why God’s word will help us in all situations, which fights off the diseases from the wickedness of this world.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Resist

Why do we resist the basic substance and nutritional value of God’s Common Sense approach to love, life, liberty, happiness, and understanding?  There is no wisdom in being lazy, off task, and unproductive in work, communication, goals, and faith. People are not attracted to churches, schools, friends, family, or enemies unless there is a minimal amount of resistance to create a curious attraction.  Perhaps we should let our Good Work from God contain no resistance from our minds, body, and hearts so that we can share and receive these obvious blessing from others.

Related

We are all related to one another and we can relate to natural stories that happen to us all around the world as human beings.  As we examine our lives and the history of others, be quick to see the root of evil problems and habits that people are so quick to share and resist copying evil lifestyles and behaviors that may seem good on the surface. The poison beneath these evil conditions is self-made and man-made manufacturing practices, which are unnecessary and should be avoided.  You must read, study, and then decide which life skills God is teaching you to exercise with each day of your life and develop better habits than your parents. You will honor your parents by doing so.  If not, you dishonor them and God.

Respond 

We respond to the call of faith and excellence each time we pray, live, and love God’s Word to the fullest and not just for capital gains selfish motives, or worldly benefits.  Too often our motives in love are attached to what we will receive and benefit from said actions.  You must fight to balance your good as a normal everyday thing that you must do because, that is who you are, regardless of the actions of others. When you talk too much, you do less work, falling short in your goals and fight for Good, Justice, and Honor in God. Let your love language of action be your response to God’s wisdom. 
Today’s Question
Are you taking your battles personally or are you personally relying on God’s Grace and Wisdom to guide your tongue, work, words, and thoughts?

Deuteronomy 17

17 “Never sacrifice sick or defective cattle, sheep, or goats to the Lord your God, for he detests such gifts.
“When you begin living in the towns the Lord your God is giving you, a man or woman among you might do evil in the sight of the Lord your God and violate the covenant. For instance, they might serve other gods or worship the sun, the moon, or any of the stars—the forces of heaven—which I have strictly forbidden.When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then the man or woman who has committed such an evil act must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. But never put a person to death on the testimony of only one witness. There must always be two or three witnesses. The witnesses must throw the first stones, and then all the people may join in. In this way, you will purge the evil from among you.
“Suppose a case arises in a local court that is too hard for you to decide—for instance, whether someone is guilty of murder or only of manslaughter, or a difficult lawsuit, or a case involving different kinds of assault. Take such legal cases to the place the Lord your God will choose, and present them to the Levitical priests or the judge on duty at that time. They will hear the case and declare the verdict. 10 You must carry out the verdict they announce and the sentence they prescribe at the place the Lord chooses. You must do exactly what they say. 11 After they have interpreted the law and declared their verdict, the sentence they impose must be fully executed; do not modify it in any way.12 Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the Lord your God must die. In this way you will purge the evil from Israel. 13 Then everyone else will hear about it and be afraid to act so arrogantly.

Guidelines for a King

14 “You are about to enter the land the Lord your God is giving you. When you take it over and settle there, you may think, ‘We should select a king to rule over us like the other nations around us.’ 15 If this happens, be sure to select as king the man the Lord your God chooses. You must appoint a fellow Israelite; he may not be a foreigner.
16 “The king must not build up a large stable of horses for himself or send his people to Egypt to buy horses, for the Lord has told you, ‘You must never return to Egypt.’ 17 The king must not take many wives for himself, because they will turn his heart away from the Lord. And he must not accumulate large amounts of wealth in silver and gold for himself.
18 “When he sits on the throne as king, he must copy for himself this body of instruction on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests. 19 He must always keep that copy with him and read it daily as long as he lives. That way he will learn to fear the Lord his God by obeying all the terms of these instructions and decrees. 20 This regular reading will prevent him from becoming proud and acting as if he is above his fellow citizens. It will also prevent him from turning away from these commands in the smallest way. And it will ensure that he and his descendants will reign for many generations in Israel.
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“In order to receive a message, thought, or idea from God, you must be willing to hear, listen, do, and consistently perform the entire duties of His plan for your life, which will be communicated through your life’s story.” ~ Jon Barnes

Tales

There are many tales, myths, legions, and legends of half-truths, lies, and stories that people believe and follow because of tradition, economics, and ignorance. Their lives are based on the belief in a tale. Then there are the few people who will read the bible and see the truth, based on following and comprehending God’s methods of sharing love, grace, and mercy. You can’t fully comprehend the message that has never been read or completely studied. As a result, many people are living with unfinished business to attend to.

Tails

I use to follow my own tail, chasing empty dreams and fantasies of others and then one day I began communicating with God’s truth to comprehend my own fate and destiny. I learned that God appreciates honest, sincere, praise and forms of communication that is from your heart. This direct line of effective communication and connection to God is not from the tail of lies or imagination, but from the Spirit of Truth, which is only given to you by God. Without God’s connection and guidance, you will chase your tail for the rest of your life and into hell. 

Tell

You can tell when people put the time in when learning a skill, music or a basic task. They understand character and integrity with each component of the process. It is best to spend a lifetime learning, doing, sharing, and comprehending the true results of God’s wisdom in your life, since each step of the way is the next best thing to learn. Truth points to the truth and honest people speak, communicate, and exchange comprehension that is meaningful and full of love.
Today’s Question 
How can you comprehend something that you have not read, studied, or acknowledged with God?
 

Numbers 35

Towns for the Levites

35 While Israel was camped beside the Jordan on the plains of Moab across from Jericho, the Lord said to Moses, “Command the people of Israel to give to the Levites from their property certain towns to live in, along with the surrounding pasturelands. These towns will be for the Levites to live in, and the surrounding lands will provide pasture for their cattle, flocks, and other livestock. The pastureland assigned to the Levites around these towns will extend 1,500 feet[a] from the town walls in every direction. Measure off 3,000 feet[b] outside the town walls in every direction—east, south, west, north—with the town at the center. This area will serve as the larger pastureland for the towns.
“Six of the towns you give the Levites will be cities of refuge, where a person who has accidentally killed someone can flee for safety. In addition, give them forty-two other towns.In all, forty-eight towns with the surrounding pastureland will be given to the Levites. These towns will come from the property of the people of Israel. The larger tribes will give more towns to the Levites, while the smaller tribes will give fewer. Each tribe will give property in proportion to the size of its land.”

Cities of Refuge

The Lord said to Moses, 10 “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel.
“When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, 11 designate cities of refuge to which people can flee if they have killed someone accidentally. 12 These cities will be places of protection from a dead person’s relatives who want to avenge the death. The slayer must not be put to death before being tried by the community. 13 Designate six cities of refuge for yourselves, 14 three on the east side of the Jordan River and three on the west in the land of Canaan. 15 These cities are for the protection of Israelites, foreigners living among you, and traveling merchants. Anyone who accidentally kills someone may flee there for safety.
16 “But if someone strikes and kills another person with a piece of iron, it is murder, and the murderer must be executed. 17 Or if someone with a stone in his hand strikes and kills another person, it is murder, and the murderer must be put to death. 18 Or if someone strikes and kills another person with a wooden object, it is murder, and the murderer must be put to death.19 The victim’s nearest relative is responsible for putting the murderer to death. When they meet, the avenger must put the murderer to death. 20 So if someone hates another person and waits in ambush, then pushes him or throws something at him and he dies, it is murder. 21 Or if someone hates another person and hits him with a fist and he dies, it is murder. In such cases, the avenger must put the murderer to death when they meet.
22 “But suppose someone pushes another person without having shown previous hostility, or throws something that unintentionally hits another person, 23 or accidentally drops a huge stone on someone, though they were not enemies, and the person dies. 24 If this should happen, the community must follow these regulations in making a judgment between the slayer and the avenger, the victim’s nearest relative: 25 The community must protect the slayer from the avenger and must escort the slayer back to live in the city of refuge to which he fled. There he must remain until the death of the high priest, who was anointed with the sacred oil.
26 “But if the slayer ever leaves the limits of the city of refuge, 27 and the avenger finds him outside the city and kills him, it will not be considered murder. 28 The slayer should have stayed inside the city of refuge until the death of the high priest. But after the death of the high priest, the slayer may return to his own property. 29 These are legal requirements for you to observe from generation to generation, wherever you may live.
30 “All murderers must be put to death, but only if evidence is presented by more than one witness. No one may be put to death on the testimony of only one witness. 31 Also, you must never accept a ransom payment for the life of someone judged guilty of murder and subject to execution; murderers must always be put to death. 32 And never accept a ransom payment from someone who has fled to a city of refuge, allowing a slayer to return to his property before the death of the high priest. 33 This will ensure that the land where you live will not be polluted, for murder pollutes the land. And no sacrifice except the execution of the murderer can purify the land from murder.[c] 34 You must not defile the land where you live, for I live there myself. I am the Lord, who lives among the people of Israel.”
Love,
Jonathan

Eyes On Your Own Paper

Hi Peeps,

Today’s Quote

“Keep your eyes on your own paper, allowing others to accomplish their tasks while you’re completing yours”

Learn

We each have different assignments, of which we all must learn how to do on our own accord. Study your assignments wholeheartedly, preparing for your best work as if God was sitting next to you. There is a great sense of satisfaction when you do your best leaving all of the good work on the table. While helping your neighbor is an important part of life, we must allow each person to study their assignment, lest we deprive them of mastering their work, while also hindering our progress on our own tasks. Fortunately God provides us many tools and resources that we all can study from.

Test

God is a savvy teacher, ensuring that our work is uniquely specific to each individual. Your test will look different than those around you, which is why we all must study for our own exam. Knowing the answers to your neighbor’s test will do you no good as your answers are from your personal homework. So keep your eyes focused on your own paper so that you can ace your exam.

Question of the day

Did you study your personal assignment to have the right answers to your test?

The Water of Cleansing

1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron: 2 “This is a requirement of the law that the LORD has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer without defect or blemish and that has never been under a yoke. 3 Give it to Eleazar the priest; it is to be taken outside the camp and slaughtered in his presence.4 Then Eleazar the priest is to take some of its blood on his finger and sprinkle it seven times toward the front of the tent of meeting. 5 While he watches, the heifer is to be burned—its hide, flesh, blood and intestines. 6 The priest is to take some cedar wood, hyssop and scarlet wool and throw them onto the burning heifer. 7 After that, the priest must wash his clothes and bathe himself with water. He may then come into the camp, but he will be ceremonially unclean till evening. 8 The man who burns it must also wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he too will be unclean till evening. 9 “A man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer and put them in a ceremonially clean place outside the camp. They are to be kept by the Israelite community for use in the water of cleansing; it is for purification from sin. 10The man who gathers up the ashes of the heifer must also wash his clothes, and he too will be unclean till evening. This will be a lasting ordinance both for the Israelites and for the foreigners residing among them. 11 “Whoever touches a human corpse will be unclean for seven days. 12 They must purify themselves with the water on the third day and on the seventh day; then they will be clean. But if they do not purify themselves on the third and seventh days, they will not be clean. 13 If they fail to purify themselves after touching a human corpse, they defile the LORD’s tabernacle. They must be cut off from Israel. Because the water of cleansing has not been sprinkled on them, they are unclean; their uncleanness remains on them. 14 “This is the law that applies when a person dies in a tent: Anyone who enters the tent and anyone who is in it will be unclean for seven days, 15 and every open container without a lid fastened on it will be unclean. 16“Anyone out in the open who touches someone who has been killed with a sword or someone who has died a natural death, or anyone who touches a human bone or a grave, will be unclean for seven days. 17 “For the unclean person, put some ashes from the burned purification offering into a jar and pour fresh water over them. 18 Then a man who is ceremonially clean is to take some hyssop, dip it in the water and sprinkle the tent and all the furnishings and the people who were there. He must also sprinkle anyone who has touched a human bone or a grave or anyone who has been killed or anyone who has died a natural death. 19 The man who is clean is to sprinkle those who are unclean on the third and seventh days, and on the seventh day he is to purify them. Those who are being cleansed must wash their clothes and bathe with water, and that evening they will be clean. 20 But if those who are unclean do not purify themselves, they must be cut off from the community, because they have defiled the sanctuary of the LORD. The water of cleansing has not been sprinkled on them, and they are unclean. 21 This is a lasting ordinance for them. “The man who sprinkles the water of cleansing must also wash his clothes, and anyone who touches the water of cleansing will be unclean till evening. 22 Anything that an unclean person touches becomes unclean, and anyone who touches it becomes unclean till evening.”

Today’s Quote

“Life’s answers reveal themselves through honest and meaningful research within the original search engine; the Bible” ~ Taryn Barnes

Con

We use modern techniques to find solutions on how we should live our lives. Where we eat, how we dress our homes or ourselves, who we choose to spend our time with, often is dictated by answers of this world. We fill ourselves up with false security Googling lifestyles that bring us comfort and ease, fattening ourselves like cattle prepped for slaughter. Instead of using the ultimate resource to verify that we’re living according to God’s doctrine. When faced with difficult situations that have difficult answers, we dismiss the truth, searching for a word Man has spoken to validate our disobedience. Friends, do not be led astray by the sweet nothings of this world.

Confirm

Escape the modern trap by referring back to the original source of knowledge, the Bible. When searching for the truth, confirm it with biblical scripture to measure if what you’re living is God’s actual truth. It takes due diligence to ensure that we’re walking the right path, rather than adding our own addendums to assuage our own comfort of disobedience.  See to it that the actions you seek to live out are in step with what has been written. Like a healthy, balanced diet, the Living Word takes discipline, continuity, and patience to digest. It’s not for the faint of heart but will provide you

Confirmation

Confirmation will shine in your life when you follow God’s word. It may not be glamorous or popular, but God’s warmth and peace overshadow the world’s temporal comforts. Our lives will either be confirmed or condemned when we meet our maker and what we do now, in this world matters. All imitations will be sussed out and dealt with accordingly. Seek confirmation from Him rather than your peers.

Are you using God’s search engine or an imitation?

Numbers 10 NIV

The Silver Trumpets

1 The LORD said to Moses: 2 “Make two trumpets of hammered silver, and use them for calling the community together and for having the camps set out. 3 When both are sounded, the whole community is to assemble before you at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 4 If only one is sounded, the leaders—the heads of the clans of Israel—are to assemble before you. 5 When a trumpet blast is sounded, the tribes camping on the east are to set out. 6 At the sounding of a second blast, the camps on the south are to set out. The blast will be the signal for setting out. 7 To gather the assembly, blow the trumpets, but not with the signal for setting out. 8 “The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to blow the trumpets. This is to be a lasting ordinance for you and the generations to come. 9 When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the LORD your God and rescued from your enemies. 10 Also at your times of rejoicing—your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts—you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God.”

The Israelites Leave Sinai

11 On the twentieth day of the second month of the second year, the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle of the covenant law.12 Then the Israelites set out from the Desert of Sinai and traveled from place to place until the cloud came to rest in the Desert of Paran. 13 They set out, this first time, at the LORD’s command through Moses. 14 The divisions of the camp of Judah went first, under their standard. Nahshon son of Amminadab was in command. 15 Nethanel son of Zuar was over the division of the tribe of Issachar, 16 and Eliab son of Helon was over the division of the tribe of Zebulun. 
17 Then the tabernacle was taken down, and the Gershonites and Merarites, who carried it, set out. 18 The divisions of the camp of Reuben went next, under their standard. Elizur son of Shedeur was in command. 19Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai was over the division of the tribe of Simeon, 20 and Eliasaph son of Deuel was over the division of the tribe of Gad. 21 Then the Kohathites set out, carrying the holy things. The tabernacle was to be set up before they arrived.22 The divisions of the camp of Ephraim went next, under their standard. Elishama son of Ammihud was in command. 23Gamaliel son of Pedahzur was over the division of the tribe of Manasseh, 24 and Abidan son of Gideoni was over the division of the tribe of Benjamin. 25 Finally, as the rear guard for all the units, the divisions of the camp of Dan set out under their standard. Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai was in command. 26 Pagiel son of Okran was over the division of the tribe of Asher, 27 and Ahira son of Enan was over the division of the tribe of Naphtali. 28This was the order of march for the Israelite divisions as they set out. 29 Now Moses said to Hobab son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law, “We are setting out for the place about which the LORD said, ‘I will give it to you.’ Come with us and we will treat you well, for the LORD has promised good things to Israel.” 30He answered, “No, I will not go; I am going back to my own land and my own people.” 31 But Moses said, “Please do not leave us. You know where we should camp in the wilderness, and you can be our eyes. 32 If you come with us, we will share with you whatever good things the LORD gives us.” 33 So they set out from the mountain of the LORD and traveled for three days. The ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them during those three days to find them a place to rest. 34 The cloud of the LORD was over them by day when they set out from the camp.35 Whenever the ark set out, Moses said, “Rise up, LORD! May your enemies be scattered; may your foes flee before you.” 36Whenever it came to rest, he said, “Return, LORD, to the countless thousands of Israel.”

Today’s Quote
“Just because you read, heard, did, or learned something once, doesn’t mean you have mastered the content and ability to teach and use the information during rest, work, or crisis mode because you are not shedding (practicing) the material every day.” ~ Jon Barnes

Consistent

Even when you don’t feel like cleaning up, clean up. Even when you don’t feel like sticking to the schedule, stick to the schedule. Even when you don’t feel like doing what God wants you to do, do it anyway. Consistently do what you are supposed to do and everything will work out a lot better than being lazy. Don’t let your small mind out think God by listening to your own silly thoughts.  Be quiet, still, and pay attention to what God is doing and saying, then work from that perspective of Biblical Lifestyle and training. Stay out of crisis mode!

Balanced

Work hard for 15 minutes and rotate to the next 3 things you must do. By the next hour, repeat the process to complete the 3 things that must be done. Expand what you want to do after you have completed your schedule. Don’t add anything to your schedule unless you have learned to complete what is in front of you. Balance and effectively use your time so that you have free time to really relax and be creative. You will consistently improve your heart, mind, body, and spirit with time and practice. You can tell when people are getting the work done in a timely fashion. Stay in God’s mode!

Actively

Actively enjoy what you are doing and keep smiling. Your attitude and self-destruction button is what makes you upset, because of your negative approach and outlook. Believe for better and do better!  It is not the job of other people to actively make you happy. People do not control your emotions and their actions should not determine your happiness. God makes us happy because we actively allow Him to be God, as we are content in doing our part, with an understanding and love work ethic of good, polite, positive, activities. Actively, stay out of your own self-destructive mode! Smile.

Leviticus 5

Sins Requiring a Sin Offering

“If you are called to testify about something you have seen or that you know about, it is sinful to refuse to testify, and you will be punished for your sin.
“Or suppose you unknowingly touch something that is ceremonially unclean, such as the carcass of an unclean animal. When you realize what you have done, you must admit your defilement and your guilt. This is true whether it is a wild animal, a domestic animal, or an animal that scurries along the ground.
“Or suppose you unknowingly touch something that makes a person unclean. When you realize what you have done, you must admit your guilt.
“Or suppose you make a foolish vow of any kind, whether its purpose is for good or for bad. When you realize its foolishness, you must admit your guilt.
“When you become aware of your guilt in any of these ways, you must confess your sin. Then you must bring to the Lord as the penalty for your sin a female from the flock, either a sheep or a goat. This is a sin offering with which the priest will purify you from your sin, making you right with the Lord.[a]
“But if you cannot afford to bring a sheep, you may bring to the Lord two turtledoves or two young pigeons as the penalty for your sin. One of the birds will be for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering. You must bring them to the priest, who will present the first bird as the sin offering. He will wring its neck but without severing its head from the body. Then he will sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering against the sides of the altar, and the rest of the blood will be drained out at the base of the altar. This is an offering for sin. 10 The priest will then prepare the second bird as a burnt offering, following all the procedures that have been prescribed. Through this process the priest will purify you from your sin, making you right with the Lord, and you will be forgiven.
11 “If you cannot afford to bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, you may bring two quarts[b] of choice flour for your sin offering. Since it is an offering for sin, you must not moisten it with olive oil or put any frankincense on it. 12 Take the flour to the priest, who will scoop out a handful as a representative portion. He will burn it on the altar on top of the special gifts presented to the Lord. It is an offering for sin. 13 Through this process, the priest will purify those who are guilty of any of these sins, making them right with the Lord, and they will be forgiven. The rest of the flour will belong to the priest, just as with the grain offering.”

Procedures for the Guilt Offering

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, 15 “If one of you commits a sin by unintentionally defiling the Lord’s sacred property, you must bring a guilt offering to the Lord. The offering must be your own ram with no defects, or you may buy one of equal value with silver, as measured by the weight of the sanctuary shekel.[c] 16 You must make restitution for the sacred property you have harmed by paying for the loss, plus an additional 20 percent. When you give the payment to the priest, he will purify you with the ram sacrificed as a guilt offering, making you right with the Lord, and you will be forgiven.
17 “Suppose you sin by violating one of the Lord’s commands. Even if you are unaware of what you have done, you are guilty and will be punished for your sin.18 For a guilt offering, you must bring to the priest your own ram with no defects, or you may buy one of equal value. Through this process the priest will purify you from your unintentional sin, making you right with the Lord, and you will be forgiven. 19 This is a guilt offering, for you have been guilty of an offense against the Lord.”
