Great Faith Requires…

01/21/2010

Matthew 15

   
21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed."
23 But He answered her not a word.
And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us."
24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me!"
26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."
27 And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.


 

Great Faith Requires a miracle… It demands the need met.

Don't see Jesus as rude here. There are factors involved that we must consider. This woman is from an area that is not part of Israel. She is not in covenant with God through Abraham. She is unlike the soldier who at least had a position of authority in Israel and had a right to come before Jesus, but humbled himself and even renounced his right by acknowledging his unworthiness in God's eyes in relation to the covenant. She is in no position of authority. She is has no relationship to the covenant. She is a woman who is not even counted in the census'. She truly is the last person who "SHOULD" have a miracle.

    Gravity is the most common law known to people. Not everyone understands other physics. But most people at least understand that gravity means that things fall to the ground. If you jump off a building you fall to the ground. However… as all present and powerful gravity appears to be on the outside… there is a set of higher laws that overrule gravity. In fact, these laws are so powerful it takes very little to put them into effect and overrule gravity. They do not cancel gravity… they over rule it. These are the Laws of Lift and Thrust. These laws are simple to put into effect. Anyone can get the blueprints for a paper airplane and practice building it and then toss it out. For a few moments the well built airplane, made of paper and powered by hand, will over rule gravity.

    These laws take effort though. You must know something of what it takes to operate them. The more you learn the more you can effect them. The more effort you put into these laws the more you can get back. The paper airplane doesn't get the same results that the first airplane made by the Wright Brothers got. The Wright plane didn't get the same results as a 747. Each level takes more effort and more planning, more understanding of principles and physics and laws. The skilled pilot takes recurrent training.

    She is walking outside The Covenant. Therefore, she falls under jurisdiction of the Devil and his Law of Sin and Death. He called the ruler of the darkness of this world. He got the authority from… God? Did God tell the devil he could have earth and men? Not a chance. But God gave Dominion and The Blessing to Adam. Adam surrendered it to Satan. God tried getting The Blessing into Noah. Then Abraham, who finally taught his sons and passed it to Jesus who died and took the keys of hell and death and gave them to us.

    Jesus tells her this when he says:

26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs."

    She is not part of this covenant. The people of Israel are the children of the Covenant. She presses in with her faith though… which is what He is looking for her to do. She says, yeah, but crumbs still fall to the dogs! We should be getting the overflow of the children's covenant. That is exactly what the people in the world ought to be… blessed by those who are BLESSED.

    She gets her miracle. Once Jesus died… He said to his disciples to GO… and THEN the Power of the Gospel was taken to the whole world. Now we ALL are children of Abraham, through Christ, and we are under that covenant! See Duet. 28, Psalms 103, Isaiah 53, and Genesis 1:28 to start to see your rights in that covenant.


 

I not only have a right to receive my healing, which Jesus said belongs to the children which I now am, but I have a responsibility to disperse that to others.

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…

Benefits Package of Heaven

Psalms 103, Benefits of God

As I ponder the benefits package of God, I'm forced to admit I haven't seen much of this play out in my life. It's been a collosal disappointment, frankly. 
Yet I accept my part. How many times did He tell me to do a thing, and I did not. Not to do a thing, and I did. Invest, save, move, he's constantly talking to those who will listen. Partnership. He will not do your job for you. 
If you're an author, he will inspire your book, he won't force you to sit and learn the craft and sit and write the book.
His Benefits take on a new meaning for me tonight, as I look them over more closely. 
Forgiveness: implies I first failed.
Healing: implies I was first sick or broken.
Redemption: implies destruction came upon me.
Mercies: imply He protected me from myself.
Renewed Youth: implies the youth was spent and gone first.
Our Daddy keeps his covenant. He has compassion for our pain, even and maybe especially when it's self inflicted.
I don't und…

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…

Sophist

A sophist was a teacher who used philosophy and rhetoric to teach virtue or excellence.



I came across this term while looking for an "S" word to replace "Thinker"...

Storyteller. Writer. Thinker.

Storyteller. Scribe. S..... Sophist? Scholar? Seeker? Seer? Sage? Standard Bearer?

Still pondering...

What's interesting to me is that the term Sophist later became a derogatory term, to refer to someone who takes money and uses logical fallacies to deceives you.

The reason I find this fascinating... I've heard so many people get mad at a Kenneth Copeland or Joel Osteen because a lot of money flows through their hands. They get called heretics by the religious Pharisees of our day. But I've worked/volunteered around Kenneth Copeland, on his property for three years. I have more respect for him than most Church leaders, by a LONG shot.

They look at the money and think it's inherently evil. Which makes no sense.

Many of those same people might pay to go to a …
