Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote 
“Grandpa was an honest musician, choir director, Minister, interior decorator, a property developer, a business man who built a church with his own money, talent, and hands, while teaching his family values about God.” ~ Jon Barnes

Without

My family is without excuse if many should die and go to hell, because my grandfather personally taught us all about the truth and I’m teaching my family to uphold God’s truth in their lives, as well. It was made clear to me that I needed to understand how to apply God’s Commandments and lifestyle laws to my personal life to walk in faith, integrity, honor, and simplicity. I have no excuse. People that I love know exactly where I stand with God in the center of my heart! There are no short cuts to heaven because you can fool people, but you cannot fool God. My question to myself is, am I a lying, cheating, stealing, lustful, foolish devil, pretending to love God?

Recite

Memorizing a prayer, giving money to churches, helping the poor, and living like a devil behind closed doors, six and a half days of the week, is wicked. The wicked can recite the Lord’s Prayer, Preach, and Teach things in the bible better than you, just like the devil lied to Eve and Adam. People make and change laws to suite their lifestyle, lust and greed. The job of evil is to appear to be nice, loving, giving, kind and helpful, so that you can slowly move into the dark side, providing much needed company in Hell. My grandpa was no fool and we often had long conversations about biblical principals. I would love to ask him tough questions that he didn’t have answers too, but was honest enough to say, “I don’t know.”

Proudly

My Grandfather and I had many heart to heart talks about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as we talked about everything, his childhood, father, being a father, an employer, owner of real-estate, helping in the community, and doing your best. He looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, ” You are the only one of my boys, who graduated from college!” He then said, “Thank You for doing the things I have taught you to do, raising your family and moving forward in God.” It meant a lot to know that my grand farther was pleased with my work. The last month that he lived with me in California was the last time that I would see him alive, because he died 6 months later. I proudly bought plane tickets for the visit a year before he died. Bless God for Good GrandFathers!
Today’s Question
Will your grandparents be proud of your lifestyle, action, and faith in God or will God reject you as you are rejecting Him?

Leviticus 24

Pure Oil and Holy Bread

24 The Lord said to Moses, “Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to keep the lamps burning continually. This is the lampstand that stands in the Tabernacle, in front of the inner curtain that shields the Ark of the Covenant.[a] Aaron must keep the lamps burning in the Lord’s presence all night. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed from generation to generation. Aaron and the priests must tend the lamps on the pure gold lampstand continually in the Lord’s presence.
“You must bake twelve flat loaves of bread from choice flour, using four quarts[b]of flour for each loaf. Place the bread before the Lord on the pure gold table, and arrange the loaves in two stacks, with six loaves in each stack. Put some pure frankincense near each stack to serve as a representative offering, a special gift presented to the Lord. Every Sabbath day this bread must be laid out before the Lord as a gift from the Israelites; it is an ongoing expression of the eternal covenant. The loaves of bread will belong to Aaron and his descendants, who must eat them in a sacred place, for they are most holy. It is the permanent right of the priests to claim this portion of the special gifts presented to the Lord.”

An Example of Just Punishment

10 One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father came out of his tent and got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. 11 During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the Name of the Lord[c] with a curse. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. 12 They kept the man in custody until the Lord’s will in the matter should become clear to them.
13 Then the Lord said to Moses, 14 “Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard the curse to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. 15 Say to the people of Israel: Those who curse their God will be punished for their sin. 16 Anyone who blasphemes the Name of the Lord must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any native-born Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the Name of the Lord must be put to death.
17 “Anyone who takes another person’s life must be put to death.
18 “Anyone who kills another person’s animal must pay for it in full—a live animal for the animal that was killed.
19 “Anyone who injures another person must be dealt with according to the injury inflicted— 20 a fracture for a fracture, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Whatever anyone does to injure another person must be paid back in kind.
21 “Whoever kills an animal must pay for it in full, but whoever kills another person must be put to death.
22 “This same standard applies both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you. I am the Lord your God.”
23 After Moses gave all these instructions to the Israelites, they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him to death. The Israelites did just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
Love,
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Your Greed, Lust, and Pride does not allow you to appreciate, experience, and see what your Father God Provides for you right before your very Eyes.” ~ Jon Barnes

Think

You have developed a lifetime worth of bad habits, full of fat repetitious behavior, based on your own thoughts, ideas, traditions, and works that are evil, selfish, or wrong, because God’s ways of love are missing in your mind! Your wicked heart makes every excuse to block the mind, body, and soul to use God’s Good work and ways of righteousness.

Thank

You should thank God for the devil’s process, so that you may learn from God and clean up your mess and allow your heart to process the truth. Thank God for a mind that listens to develop a loving heart that transitions into a repenting, mature, masterpiece of God’s Working Spit Art, which will allow you access into the Gate of Heaven.

Thunk

Avoiding and running from your clean up job with Love is not progress, because the richness of Lust, Pride and Greed has an empty thunk sound of need, in the trunk of your soul, ringing for eternity in want. All the power, money, fame, talent, and fake feelings of bliss, is just a technological misappropriation of true love, with a hollow front. Trumped by your own empty shell games, your greed has been sold and now returns to claim your evil soul’s remains in the thunk, trumped sound of Hell and perpetual pain.
Today’s Question
How can you see the truth in God’s Love, since you are using the devil’s eyes of Lust, Greed, and Pride?

Genesis 29

Jacob Arrives at Paddan-Aram

29 Then Jacob hurried on, finally arriving in the land of the east. He saw a well in the distance. Three flocks of sheep and goats lay in an open field beside it, waiting to be watered. But a heavy stone covered the mouth of the well.
It was the custom there to wait for all the flocks to arrive before removing the stone and watering the animals. Afterward the stone would be placed back over the mouth of the well. Jacob went over to the shepherds and asked, “Where are you from, my friends?”
“We are from Haran,” they answered.
“Do you know a man there named Laban, the grandson of Nahor?” he asked.
“Yes, we do,” they replied.
“Is he doing well?” Jacob asked.
“Yes, he’s well,” they answered. “Look, here comes his daughter Rachel with the flock now.”
Jacob said, “Look, it’s still broad daylight—too early to round up the animals. Why don’t you water the sheep and goats so they can get back out to pasture?”
“We can’t water the animals until all the flocks have arrived,” they replied. “Then the shepherds move the stone from the mouth of the well, and we water all the sheep and goats.”
Jacob was still talking with them when Rachel arrived with her father’s flock, for she was a shepherd. 10 And because Rachel was his cousin—the daughter of Laban, his mother’s brother—and because the sheep and goats belonged to his uncle Laban, Jacob went over to the well and moved the stone from its mouth and watered his uncle’s flock. 11 Then Jacob kissed Rachel, and he wept aloud. 12 He explained to Rachel that he was her cousin on her father’s side—the son of her aunt Rebekah. So Rachel quickly ran and told her father, Laban.
13 As soon as Laban heard that his nephew Jacob had arrived, he ran out to meet him. He embraced and kissed him and brought him home. When Jacob had told him his story, 14 Laban exclaimed, “You really are my own flesh and blood!”

Jacob Marries Leah and Rachel

After Jacob had stayed with Laban for about a month, 15 Laban said to him, “You shouldn’t work for me without pay just because we are relatives. Tell me how much your wages should be.”
16 Now Laban had two daughters. The older daughter was named Leah, and the younger one was Rachel. 17 There was no sparkle in Leah’s eyes,[a] but Rachel had a beautiful figure and a lovely face. 18 Since Jacob was in love with Rachel, he told her father, “I’ll work for you for seven years if you’ll give me Rachel, your younger daughter, as my wife.”
19 “Agreed!” Laban replied. “I’d rather give her to you than to anyone else. Stay and work with me.” 20 So Jacob worked seven years to pay for Rachel. But his love for her was so strong that it seemed to him but a few days.
21 Finally, the time came for him to marry her. “I have fulfilled my agreement,” Jacob said to Laban. “Now give me my wife so I can sleep with her.”
22 So Laban invited everyone in the neighborhood and prepared a wedding feast.23 But that night, when it was dark, Laban took Leah to Jacob, and he slept with her. 24 (Laban had given Leah a servant, Zilpah, to be her maid.)
25 But when Jacob woke up in the morning—it was Leah! “What have you done to me?” Jacob raged at Laban. “I worked seven years for Rachel! Why have you tricked me?”
26 “It’s not our custom here to marry off a younger daughter ahead of the firstborn,” Laban replied. 27 “But wait until the bridal week is over; then we’ll give you Rachel, too—provided you promise to work another seven years for me.”
28 So Jacob agreed to work seven more years. A week after Jacob had married Leah, Laban gave him Rachel, too. 29 (Laban gave Rachel a servant, Bilhah, to be her maid.) 30 So Jacob slept with Rachel, too, and he loved her much more than Leah. He then stayed and worked for Laban the additional seven years.

Jacob’s Many Children

31 When the Lord saw that Leah was unloved, he enabled her to have children, but Rachel could not conceive. 32 So Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben,[b] for she said, “The Lord has noticed my misery, and now my husband will love me.”
33 She soon became pregnant again and gave birth to another son. She named him Simeon,[c] for she said, “The Lord heard that I was unloved and has given me another son.”
34 Then she became pregnant a third time and gave birth to another son. He was named Levi,[d] for she said, “Surely this time my husband will feel affection for me, since I have given him three sons!”
35 Once again Leah became pregnant and gave birth to another son. She named him Judah,[e] for she said, “Now I will praise the Lord!” And then she stopped having children.

Jonathan

Exposure

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Many of us expose ourselves to unnecessary pain, grief, and problems by not studying, learning, and going to God with your problems, needs, talents, diet, and weaknesses.” ~ Jon Barnes

Diet

Get a daily dose of God each morning with the proper prayer, reading, and reflecting so that you may meditate on Good things and thoughts to bridle your evil tongue!  Speak less, listen more, and use your tongue for eating fresh vegetables and fruits more often to balance your physical, mental, and spiritual weight management.

Discovery

You may find better solutions and reduce stress and potential problems by doing the new good ideas God has given you.  Obey the discovery of God and His purpose in your life and find new cures to old problems with simple biblical truth and practices.  Improve your lifestyle by listening to God and exposing your weakness in the flesh and strengthen your spirit and faith in God.

Raw

Eat the truth Raw, and uncooked, like fresh vegetables so that you can expose yourself to the maximum amount of holy nutrition available for your mind, body, and soul. The food of God is here is you want it, seek it, and use it!  Cut the food into small sized portions and mix fruit and vegetables to blend the taste. Expose yourself to new cultures, from God’s perspective.

Revelation 19

Threefold Hallelujah Over Babylon’s Fall

19 After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting:
“Hallelujah!
Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,
    for true and just are his judgments.
He has condemned the great prostitute
    who corrupted the earth by her adulteries.
He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”
And again they shouted:
“Hallelujah!
The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.”
The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried:
“Amen, Hallelujah!”
Then a voice came from the throne, saying:
“Praise our God,
    all you his servants,
you who fear him,
    both great and small!”
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing water sand like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
“Hallelujah!
    For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and be glad
    and give him glory!
For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
    and his bride has made herself ready.
Fine linen, bright and clean,
    was given her to wear.”
(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.)
Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”
10 At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”

The Heavenly Warrior Defeats the Beast

11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”[a] He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
king of kings and lord of lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.”
19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20 But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 The rest were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.

Love,

Jonathan
