Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Live your life in a manner in which God lights up the room and not your sad stories of gloom and doom, that you enjoy sweeping up with your wicked tongue, like a witch’s broom.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Broom

Lying, cheating, stealing, and being disobedient to God and His Commandments is just like practicing witchcraft.  Your tongue can sow clean, fresh seeds of kindness, happiness, and fruitfulness into the air, with good business and ethics or you, can spread a lot of dust, dirt, and allergens into the air, making people sick with coughing up germs and spreading them all around the world. 

Witch

It doesn’t make sense to spin negative plots and plans of unhappiness into the world since you will pay for what you are doing.  Which reward do you prefer, hell, a witches reward or heavenly, a reward for the obedient child of God?  There are only two options on the menu in lieu of your options for eternal life and you will pay for the witch meal that you ordered.  Don’t sweep your love for God under a rug!

End

Your life should look, smell, and taste like which meal you ordered and prefer.  Don’t be fooled by the propaganda of evil people, just because your witch meal comes with a 5-star restaurant rating or a happy meal with a two for one twist.  Learn and trust in God’s meal plan for your success and life’s decisions for your own family and eternal destination.  In the end, you must eat properly to digest the commandments of God, in love with your good works.  You are what you eat.  Fake food, restaurants, and meal plans will burn with you in hell, as you follow the witches broom of spells, potions, and spirits of destruction and evil.

Psalm 32 

A psalm of David.

Oh, what joy for those
    whose disobedience is forgiven,
    whose sin is put out of sight!
Yes, what joy for those
    whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt,[b]
    whose lives are lived in complete honesty!
When I refused to confess my sin,
    my body wasted away,
    and I groaned all day long.
Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me.
    My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Interlude
Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
    and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”
    And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. Interlude
Therefore, let all the godly pray to you while there is still time,
    that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment.
For you are my hiding place;
    you protect me from trouble.
    You surround me with songs of victory. Interlude
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
    I will advise you and watch over you.
Do not be like a senseless horse or mule
    that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control.”
10 Many sorrows come to the wicked,
    but unfailing love surrounds those who trust the Lord.
11 So rejoice in the Lord and be glad, all you who obey him!
    Shout for joy, all you whose hearts are pure!

Love,

Jonathan

Evil

rattlesnake-653642_1920.jpgHi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“When you pick up evil habits that go undetected, unchanged, and ignored, you stand the risk of ruining your life, because these little problems will grow into major catastrophes, due to your arrogance.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Memory

Your evil work is like an invisible eraser that removes any trace of morals and values from your character God has taught you.  Your will and pride overrides how to do the right things and your hearing and doing the truth fade away by default.  The old memory card gets erased, deleted, corrupt or altered.

Duplicates

Bad patterns of evil slowly grow into your DNA, replacing good nerves for bad nerves. Soon, your whole body and mind become wrapped up and intertwined with little lies, fake news, and stories that are untrue. Who you are can no longer be recognized and your lifestyle has successfully duplicated who the devil is.

Patterns

Pay attention to who, what, when, why, and where you pattern yourself, thoughts, actions, mind, body, habits, and spirit after.  We follow Christ in Love to copy His Patterns of truth, justice, honesty, integrity, love, and fun in doing the good work, spreading great memories and controlling our negative mouths and actions.
Today’s Question
Are you trying to spin the truth of Good Intentions with your evil tongue, by letting the Spirit of God control and replace your negative behavior, words, stories, and ideas with good ones.

Psalm 25 

A psalm of David.

Lord, I give my life to you.
    I trust in you, my God!
Do not let me be disgraced,
    or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.
No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced,
    but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.
Show me the right path, O Lord;
    point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
    for you are the God who saves me.
    All day long I put my hope in you.
Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love,
    which you have shown from long ages past.
Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
    Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
    for you are merciful, O Lord.
The Lord is good and does what is right;
    he shows the proper path to those who go astray.
He leads the humble in doing right,
    teaching them his way.
10 The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness
    all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.
11 For the honor of your name, O Lord,
    forgive my many, many sins.
12 Who are those who fear the Lord?
    He will show them the path they should choose.
13 They will live in prosperity,
    and their children will inherit the land.
14 The Lord is a friend to those who fear him.
    He teaches them his covenant.
15 My eyes are always on the Lord,
    for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.
16 Turn to me and have mercy,
    for I am alone and in deep distress.
17 My problems go from bad to worse.
    Oh, save me from them all!
18 Feel my pain and see my trouble.
    Forgive all my sins.
19 See how many enemies I have
    and how viciously they hate me!
20 Protect me! Rescue my life from them!
    Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge.
21 May integrity and honesty protect me,
    for I put my hope in you.
22 O God, ransom Israel
    from all its troubles.

Love,

Jonathan

Hear

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“People hear what they want to hear to satisfy their aching, itchy ears for lies, loopholes, and worldly ideas of seduction to abdicate themselves from God’s throne of righteousness.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Seduction

We tend to listen with all of our senses shut down so that our minds can trick our hearts into believing other solutions that are wrong and not of God.  The lust of our eyes will salivate our taste buds to drip like a dog in heat, ready to take what is not ours to have.  Our minds can shut down all functions, like the government, to prove a personal, passionate point, with the silence of God’s thoughts and fullness of wickedness.  What’s your excuse?

Abduction

When you allow the devil to shut down your central nervous system, there is no way to feel the pain of being disobedient to God and His Loving Commandments that are designed to protect you.  Drunken in your own selfish, super, stoop-per, stupidity becomes your best friend.  The abduction is complete and you are not fully deaf, dumb, and blind to God’s Truth.

Abdication

In God, you are a member of the royal family and you must not give up your responsibility to do your duty in carrying out God’s commandments with honor, justice, truth, and love.  Your faith means nothing, with your voluntary, contradictory behavior that is the opposite of God’s laws. Perhaps you didn’t hear what I heard, see what I saw, or fell what I felt, or know what you should have known.
Today’s Question
Did you give up your position in God with no possibility of getting it back, like many who will follow the devil to hell?

Psalm 20 

For the choir director: A psalm of David.

In times of trouble, may the Lord answer your cry.
    May the name of the God of Jacob keep you safe from all harm.
May he send you help from his sanctuary
    and strengthen you from Jerusalem.[a]
May he remember all your gifts
    and look favorably on your burnt offerings. Interlude
May he grant your heart’s desires
    and make all your plans succeed.
May we shout for joy when we hear of your victory
    and raise a victory banner in the name of our God.
May the Lord answer all your prayers.
Now I know that the Lord rescues his anointed king.
    He will answer him from his holy heaven
    and rescue him by his great power.
Some nations boast of their chariots and horses,
    but we boast in the name of the Lord our God.
Those nations will fall down and collapse,
    but we will rise up and stand firm.
Give victory to our king, O Lord!
    Answer our cry for help.
Love,

Hands

hands-600497_1920 (1)
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The hand of God is so powerful and awesome, I’m starting to correct many of my mistakes to now notice the best choices, options, decisions, thoughts, and words to say, exercise, share, and type each day; because I want to do better.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Connect

Connect and correct your mistakes, error of thinking, and judgment with God so that He can guide how you talk, think, work, listen, and respond to others with quality, dignity, respect, and thoughtful responses to the needs of others.  Help people and yourself by giving honest truth and moving through life as you should.

Run

Run to the devil with the truth and he will step aside because God is with you!  When he shows up, have your spiritual atomic bombs ready to hand him, as you pull the grenade-like pin, placing the bomb into satan’s mouth.  There is no need to be afraid when you are doing the right things with God’s blessings.

Enjoy

Enjoy how God’s atomic love explodes in the face of evil like lovely fireworks of splendor in the grass, along with your best choices of patience, commitment, quality, and consistency for sharing God’s love everywhere you go and in everything you do.  Let your reputation sing like a symphony of all styles of music, being conducted by the very Hand of God. God can see all of your work, before, during, and after it happens.

Psalm 9 

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be sung to the tune “Death of the Son.”

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
    I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.
I will be filled with joy because of you.
    I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.
My enemies retreated;
    they staggered and died when you appeared.
For you have judged in my favor;
    from your throne you have judged with fairness.
You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
    you have erased their names forever.
The enemy is finished, in endless ruins;
    the cities you uprooted are now forgotten.
But the Lord reigns forever,
    executing judgment from his throne.
He will judge the world with justice
    and rule the nations with fairness.
The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,
    a refuge in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
11 Sing praises to the Lord who reigns in Jerusalem.[a]
    Tell the world about his unforgettable deeds.
12 For he who avenges murder cares for the helpless.
    He does not ignore the cries of those who suffer.
13 Lord, have mercy on me.
    See how my enemies torment me.
    Snatch me back from the jaws of death.
14 Save me so I can praise you publicly at Jerusalem’s gates,
    so I can rejoice that you have rescued me.
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they dug for others.
    Their own feet have been caught in the trap they set.
16 The Lord is known for his justice.
    The wicked are trapped by their own deeds. Quiet Interlude[b]
17 The wicked will go down to the grave.[c]
    This is the fate of all the nations who ignore God.
18 But the needy will not be ignored forever;
    the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed.
19 Arise, O Lord!
    Do not let mere mortals defy you!
    Judge the nations!
20 Make them tremble in fear, O Lord.
    Let the nations know they are merely human. Interlude

Love,

Jonathan

Repentance

bible-2167778_1920 (1)
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Dear God and people, please forgive me of all the sin I have done in my life to cause hurt, pain, suffering, and unnecessary anguish onto others, knowingly, willingly, and unknowingly and Please help me to stay on track with the Commandments in the Bible.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Goodness

Pretending to do good works with altered selfish motives of evil and greed can be detected by God.  For show, many will look the part to fool people, but God cannot be fooled.  For sure, your lies and fake repentance will burn you up in the end, spiritually, physically, and literally.  Do not lie to God with fake, false, and phony prayers, of heartless intentions.

My Prayers

Allow God to teach you how to pray and work from your secret closet, so that your blessings will be noticed from the Hand of God and not your hands.  Consistently meet and use your prayer closet of repentance, worship, and meditation for learning, reading, counseling, and wisdom to stay connected to God and not your own self-righteous, manmade image.  People will automatically know that God honors and answers your prayers, based on the trail of blessing you leave behind in your walk with God.

Your Prayers

Your prayers, faith, and work will be taken seriously, based on the honest integrity of your obedience and not your cunning abilities to paint half-truths with white lies, deception, and ambiguity.  Your prayers, language, and actions should be direct, genuine, to the point with few words, so that you minimize the risk of lying and vain babbling.  Repent and spread the Word of Faith in your daily practice in life’s journey.
Today’s Question
Are you still pretending in your repentance, faith, charity, love, and thanksgiving, only to be publicly seen and heard by people and not God?

Job 41 

The Lord’s Challenge Continues

41 [a]“Can you catch Leviathan[b] with a hook
    or put a noose around its jaw?
Can you tie it with a rope through the nose
    or pierce its jaw with a spike?
Will it beg you for mercy
    or implore you for pity?
Will it agree to work for you,
    to be your slave for life?
Can you make it a pet like a bird,
    or give it to your little girls to play with?
Will merchants try to buy it
    to sell it in their shops?
Will its hide be hurt by spears
    or its head by a harpoon?
If you lay a hand on it,
    you will certainly remember the battle that follows.
    You won’t try that again!
[c]No, it is useless to try to capture it.
    The hunter who attempts it will be knocked down.
10 And since no one dares to disturb it,
    who then can stand up to me?
11 Who has given me anything that I need to pay back?
    Everything under heaven is mine.
12 “I want to emphasize Leviathan’s limbs
    and its enormous strength and graceful form.
13 Who can strip off its hide,
    and who can penetrate its double layer of armor?[d]
14 Who could pry open its jaws?
    For its teeth are terrible!
15 The scales on its back are like[e] rows of shields
    tightly sealed together.
16 They are so close together
    that no air can get between them.
17 Each scale sticks tight to the next.
    They interlock and cannot be penetrated.
18 “When it sneezes, it flashes light!
    Its eyes are like the red of dawn.
19 Lightning leaps from its mouth;
    flames of fire flash out.
20 Smoke streams from its nostrils
    like steam from a pot heated over burning rushes.
21 Its breath would kindle coals,
    for flames shoot from its mouth.
22 “The tremendous strength in Leviathan’s neck
    strikes terror wherever it goes.
23 Its flesh is hard and firm
    and cannot be penetrated.
24 Its heart is hard as rock,
    hard as a millstone.
25 When it rises, the mighty are afraid,
    gripped by terror.
26 No sword can stop it,
    no spear, dart, or javelin.
27 Iron is nothing but straw to that creature,
    and bronze is like rotten wood.
28 Arrows cannot make it flee.
    Stones shot from a sling are like bits of grass.
29 Clubs are like a blade of grass,
    and it laughs at the swish of javelins.
30 Its belly is covered with scales as sharp as glass.
    It plows up the ground as it drags through the mud.
31 “Leviathan makes the water boil with its commotion.
    It stirs the depths like a pot of ointment.
32 The water glistens in its wake,
    making the sea look white.
33 Nothing on earth is its equal,
    no other creature so fearless.
34 Of all the creatures, it is the proudest.
    It is the king of beasts.”

Love,

Jonathan

Perfection

water-1759703_1920 (2)
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Sometimes the truth of perfection sounds so negative that you have to be careful how you deliver the message so that people can receive what God is sharing with you to tell others.”  ~ Jon Barnes

Showing

Living and showing your message will be a great example of role play, role modeling, and effecting positive changes in life, relationships, and family dynamics. The inside will see the outside of our character and they will never be strangers.  Also, we will all piss each other off each day, if we allow the devil to steal of joy, sense of humor, and humility.  It is always a good practice to reflect and think before talking so much.  Writing and reading help a lot too.

Quiet

Let God show you solutions in you quiet hour and notice how much stronger your faith develops to see the daily miracles right before your eyes. Do not fall off the deep edged cliff, because you took your eyes off of Christ, by thinking that you are perfect and know all things.  Learn to listen and copy God’s ways in your thoughts, words, work, actions, and deeds.

Reservation

Take small steps and look carefully into what you say and do, as you learn, grow, and improve your standing with God, family, friends, and enemies.  Your timing and smile mean a lot when delivering the important daily messages of love, hope, and mercy.  We are not robots, machines, aliens, or animal from the forest.  Every battle is not for you to win.
Today’s Question
Does the gift of Love requires you to sacrifice and give something that is perfect?

 

Job 37 

37 “My heart pounds as I think of this.
    It trembles within me.
Listen carefully to the thunder of God’s voice
    as it rolls from his mouth.
It rolls across the heavens,
    and his lightning flashes in every direction.
Then comes the roaring of the thunder—
    the tremendous voice of his majesty.
    He does not restrain it when he speaks.
God’s voice is glorious in the thunder.
    We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power.
“He directs the snow to fall on the earth
    and tells the rain to pour down.
Then everyone stops working
    so they can watch his power.
The wild animals take cover
    and stay inside their dens.
The stormy wind comes from its chamber,
    and the driving winds bring the cold.
10 God’s breath sends the ice,
    freezing wide expanses of water.
11 He loads the clouds with moisture,
    and they flash with his lightning.
12 The clouds churn about at his direction.
    They do whatever he commands throughout the earth.
13 He makes these things happen either to punish people
    or to show his unfailing love.
14 “Pay attention to this, Job.
    Stop and consider the wonderful miracles of God!
15 Do you know how God controls the storm
    and causes the lightning to flash from his clouds?
16 Do you understand how he moves the clouds
    with wonderful perfection and skill?
17 When you are sweltering in your clothes
    and the south wind dies down and everything is still,
18 he makes the skies reflect the heat like a bronze mirror.
    Can you do that?
19 “So teach the rest of us what to say to God.
    We are too ignorant to make our own arguments.
20 Should God be notified that I want to speak?
    Can people even speak when they are confused?[a]
21 We cannot look at the sun,
    for it shines brightly in the sky
    when the wind clears away the clouds.
22 So also, golden splendor comes from the mountain of God.[b]
    He is clothed in dazzling splendor.
23 We cannot imagine the power of the Almighty;
    but even though he is just and righteous,
    he does not destroy us.
24 No wonder people everywhere fear him.
    All who are wise show him reverence.[c]

Love,

Jonathan

Forever

road-808167_1920.jpgHi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“People in hell will be ignored and punished forever, whereas the people in heaven will enjoy God’s blessings and presence.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Endless

God’s level of endless pleasure is hidden within the purpose and plans of Love in your life, heart, Spirit, and soul.  By executing the endless possibilities of doing God’s work here on earth, your faith will grow exponentially with an endless supply of support from God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit. Walk in your gift and don’t abuse it. 

Always

Always remember that few are chosen to be with Christ in Heaven and many will turn away from the truth of God because of unbelief, greed, pride arrogance, selfishness, vanity, envy, strife, wickedness, and other lies.  Don’t be like those people. You have a choice, so always remember that.

Forgotten

People have forgotten the Ways of God because they never believed it from the beginning.  They know the Truth but refuse to change.  You will always do as you believe because you cannot lie to yourself and God at the same time.  However, lying to yourself and God does not relieve you of your responsibility or judgment in the last days.  Forever you will pay one way or the other.
Today’s Question
How do you honestly visualize spending Forever in Hell?

Job 27 

Job’s Final Speech

27 Job continued speaking:
“I vow by the living God, who has taken away my rights,
    by the Almighty who has embittered my soul—
As long as I live,
    while I have breath from God,
my lips will speak no evil,
    and my tongue will speak no lies.
I will never concede that you are right;
    I will defend my integrity until I die.
I will maintain my innocence without wavering.
    My conscience is clear for as long as I live.
“May my enemy be punished like the wicked,
    my adversary like those who do evil.
For what hope do the godless have when God cuts them off
    and takes away their life?
Will God listen to their cry
    when trouble comes upon them?
10 Can they take delight in the Almighty?
    Can they call to God at any time?
11 I will teach you about God’s power.
    I will not conceal anything concerning the Almighty.
12 But you have seen all this,
    yet you say all these useless things to me.
13 “This is what the wicked will receive from God;
    this is their inheritance from the Almighty.
14 They may have many children,
    but the children will die in war or starve to death.
15 Those who survive will die of a plague,
    and not even their widows will mourn them.
16 “Evil people may have piles of money
    and may store away mounds of clothing.
17 But the righteous will wear that clothing,
    and the innocent will divide that money.
18 The wicked build houses as fragile as a spider’s web,[a]
    as flimsy as a shelter made of branches.
19 The wicked go to bed rich
    but wake to find that all their wealth is gone.
20 Terror overwhelms them like a flood,
    and they are blown away in the storms of the night.
21 The east wind carries them away, and they are gone.
    It sweeps them away.
22 It whirls down on them without mercy.
    They struggle to flee from its power.
23 But everyone jeers at them
    and mocks them.
 
Love,
 
Jonathan
