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

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…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
