Jesus' M.O.

Jan, 6th , 2010

Mathew 4

Jesus' M.O. Modus Operandi, or His Method Operation:

  • What stands out to me while reading this chapter in Mathew 4. The chapter starts with a dialogue between Satan and Jesus. Satan asks "IF" to cause doubt, and Jesus replies "IT IS!" to remove all doubt. This should show us that the Word of God is our FIRST place and FINAL authority. Any question ever asked should lead to "What does the Word say? It says: XYZ! Therefore that is settled."
So in looking at the begining of Jesus' Ministry I see an interesting pattern develope.
  • I see first of all Jesus begins his ministry with a move. He moves from his home in Nazareth, to a new house in Capernum. I believe he actually moved out of Mary's home and away from his half brothers and sisters for the simple reason that he knew his life was about to get busy and chaotic at times, and He didn't want to subject them to that. He also needed to make a clean break from Jesus Mary's son to Jesus the Prophet. He says elsewhere that a prophet is not accepted in his own home town, and when Mary and his half brothers and sister came to get his attention he drew a line saying that ANYONE who does the will of the Father was his mother and brother and sister. So we can learn from this that sometimes you need to make a clean break from who you were to who you are, even if who you were was a good thing. New Seasons can require new mindsets.
  • Then Jesus Message is: "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand." This was a consistent message, he never altered and never changed. You see him tell his disciples when sending them out to do the same thing.
  • Jesus' Offer: Follow Me... and I will make you fishers of men! It is still true today. You cannot follow Jesus without a burning desire developing on the inside of you to reach others with His Truth. You can follow religion and stay by yourself, but you cannot follow Jesus without a growing and burning desire to reach others.
  • Jesus M.O.:
    • Went- No standing still, you cannot sit in the church waiting for them to come to you. You MUST go out among the people and reach them. TV is a great and even nessasary outreach, but it doesn't cut it alone, you MUST be out among them.
    • Taught in the Church- Services are important, having a regular meeting place is important. You must feed you fish once you've caught them.
    • Preached a consistent message: The Gospel of the Kingdom. All Holy Spirit inspired sermons fall under this catagory. Anything that doesn't is probably just readers digest.
    • Healed ALL Kinds- He Demonstrated the Authority AND Power of this Kingdom He was speaking about. He expected his Fishers-of-men to do the same!
  • This resulted in MANY coming to Him and recieving from Him.
My ministry must pattern after His:
  • Go Among the People
  • Teach them the Word
  • Be Consistent in my message
  • Demonstrate His LOVE, Authority, and Power!
                      Good Thoughts for all believers,

                                           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…

Embracing Grief - The process God gave you to heal

The following was a question from a Widow/Widower support group I belong to:

What is the most important thing you've learned about grief?
My Answer:

Grief is a process to be embraced and walked through. 
Your physical brain has developed protein structures (memories and muscle memories) that tell your body to react in a certain way.

These structures tell the leg to move when walking and they tell the body and mind to be a certain way at home with your spouse, certain expected norms.

Just as when a Vet loses a limb, a widow(er) loses something much more profound, their other half.

The new treatment for those who lose limbs is to activate the new nerve endings by rubbing them frequently with various materials (hard, soft, scratchy, smooth, hot, cold) so the brain can learn the new nerve endings. This helps alleviate "Phantom Limb Syndrome".

God gave us Widows(ers) the gift of Grief to help us recognize and process these protein structures in the brain as they relate to our …

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…
