Fed by Ravens

Saturday 01/09/2009
I Kings 17


Elijah boldly declares that it will not rain in the land except by HIS word... Elijah... buddy... you need to be humble here... you mean God's word right? That's not what it says. Now obviously he is a prophet and thus if he says it that would be because the Spirit of God is moving on him to say it. Nevertheless God shows time and again from Gen to Rev that he is not willing to work on the earth without a participant.


God is about to judge Sodom and Gomorrah for their sin. He then turns to Abraham first and tells him about it...


Genesis 18
 17And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do...


 Abraham begins to dialogue with the Lord and plead the case of this city, mostly for his nephew Lot's sake. God is always looking for a man or woman of God to get involved in the worlds affairs.


Ezekiel 22:30
"I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.


So here is Elijah... getting fed by ravens night and day  and watered by the brook. Getting his needs met supernaturally. Then the brook dries up... if your brook dries up... your provision has moved... it may be a sign you are not ONLY in the wrong place now... but that you are being called to meet someone ELSE'S need by your moving.


God isn't just about meeting YOUR needs. The idea people in the church world developed, "I don't need much, just enough for me and my four... I want to live humble.", is a bunch of bull dung. Babies cry about their own hunger, parents cry about the hunger of their children. If one claims to be spiritual, James 1:27 says, he should look after orphans and widows and keep himself from being polluted by the world. One of the main pollutants of the world is selfishness which this statement is saturated with. 


SO...God calls Elijah to get up and go to Zarapheth, in Sidon,(which is NOT in Israel) and see a widow woman there. God has commanded this widow woman to provide for Elijah. WAIT... how do I look after widows and orphans if I'm having THEM meet my needs? The seed sown by this young woman of faith into Elijah because the catalyst for God to supernaturally provide for her, her son, and the prophet for years! Why did God bring Elijah over? 


This woman has NO covenant with God, she is NOT a Jew. She is a gentile heathen woman. But she demonstrates great faith. Faith always attracts God's attention. If God commanded her to provide for Elijah... how come she was preparing to eat and die? Because the word of Elijah IS her command from God. SHE can't hear it if HE doesn't say it. Again... no covenant of her own. She isn't full of the Holy Spirit. She can't be. Jesus hasn't come to redeem the gentiles. They can only be under the blessing if they attach themselves to the blessed.


Your Provision is about OTHERS! Believing God for new car? Believe him to TEN so that you can give 8 or 9 away! That is the Blessing Mentality... THAT is God's way... THAT is the Kingdom of God!


BE Blessed... Darrell G. Wolfe

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
