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…

Cashless Society...

Tale of Two Seasons:
As we quickly approach the last days there are two sets of events simultaneously emerging. The one most average Christians know about, and the one fewer know about. 
Tribulation: Revelation 13:16He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads...
"The Tribulation", a period of 7 years where the earth will come under tremendous stress. Having been vacated of all the Christians, filled with the Holy Spirit, who are the salt and light, and therefore restraining the darkness; the Prince of this present world's system, Satan, will cause his Anti Christ to emerge. 
People will get saved under the preaching of many who knew of the Gospel but didn't believe in their heart or confess with their mouth. There will also be 144,000 Jewish witnesses, from each of the 12 tribes of Israel, who will preach salvation on the earth. Primarily, they will be sent to the people of Israel, and the…

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?

The Future of Work: Is being a writer (artist, musician, creative) an impractical career?

In a writers group on Facebook, a young writer asked (edited):
How do you respond to family members saying that being a writer is impractical? This is a great question. When I was going to college I stopped pursuing music and theater because it didn't seem to lead to a "practical career". I got bogged down in other things and eventually dropped out (after six years and 78 units). But times are changing and we're in a new type of revolution.

So, what do you think?
What is the future of work? How would you respond?
What is impractical, what does that even mean?First, you reply:
You said 'impractical' when I think you meant 'I'm Practical'. The root of Impractical is Practical, or to be "not-practical". The word practical is derived from the root word PRACTICE.
practicale "of or pertaining to matters of practice; applied,"  All careers require a great deal of practice, hard work, study of the chosen field, and many small wins before th…

FICO, Credit Building, and Credit Cards

FICOSo, I'm still hearing a lot of people say things that are not true, don't make sense, or are just plain bad advice. Credit building is not rocket science. Yes, the formulas and math behind them actually are akin to rocket science math. But some of the basic things the average person needs to know are actually quite simple.
If you want to build credit without paying interest or creating debt read on, or just skip to the bottom to the conclusion. I'm sure you've seen this funny video on TV:


I wrote a post previously about FICO and Credit Decisions, now I want to bring in the focus a little to some basics. The very first things you should know is that THE company that creates your credit score is FICO (the Fair Isaac Corporation). It was started by Bill Fair and Earl Isaac. It is now THE leading credit scoring company on the planet. FICO is the most used credit scoring platform accounting for over 100 BILLION scores sold to date.
