New Wine

01.13.10

Mathew 9:15

ONE thing came out higher for me this time reading this chapter than anything else. What did Jesus mean by this new wine old wineskins analogy?

It finally makes sense for the first time... I'm not sure it would have made sense before but I have done some fasting between the time I read this last, whenever that was, and now.

Jesus is empowering these men with the anointing to deliver his Gospel of the Kingdom. He is in constant 24-7 training mode. Nothing makes training go better than a good meal. Our best team meetings at work have always been food friendly meetings. Nothing brings a team together and builds morale like eating together.

Fasting isn't a time for learning as much as it is for growing. Medical science has already shown us this on a scale we all do everyday and don't even think about.

Sleep, recharges the body and allows the brain and body to assess damage and repair things that got our of order. If you eat late than you body has to digest this food which hinders this restoration process. You body should be sleeping well, NOT degesting during the restoration phase of your day. This phase for most healthy people is between 6-9 hours overnight.

SO... fasting food (or any other natural thing that inhibits or adds distraction to your spiritual life) is a way you can bring your body under subjection to your spirit. The time normally spent preparing, eating, cleaning up after food should be spent now on things that cause you to grow, restore, or correct.

Essentially:

Fasting allows that which has been fed by the Word, the Holy Spirit, and Teachers, which has now been digested and stored, to now be used to restore and correct the spiritual life. All the lessons you learned, words given, things that you found in the word can now be brought out and focused and used to restore and correct.

So the disciples who were young, and new to ministry and being fed spiritually by Jesus are not in need of a fast. Once Jesus dies and they are without Him they will fast. This time will be time the Holy Spirit may now restore and correct. Fasting in the natural is an act of obedience that opens one to partake in the spiritual and soulical (mind, will, emotions) process of restoration. Fasting of some kind should be a regular part of spiritual routine, just as sleeping is a regular part of natural routine.

It is as un-natural NOT to fast as it is un-natural NOT to sleep. One need not fast daily, for spiritual growth operates on a higher level than natural growth. However period of dedicated fasting according to the Leading of the Holy Spirit from time to time are vital to any accelerated growth.

What can you fast?
Food (Maybe not a whole day, why not fast lunches at work three days in a row and hide yourself away where no one can find you and read and pray during those three lunch hours?)

TV, radio, internet, cell phone, etc... Some could use a WORDS fast and just be silent for an hour, two hours, a day...

Start small build to other things... but start somewhere.

Ask the Holy Spirit what HE would have you do at YOUR level of growth. Consult reading on proper fasting before attempting long periods without food or water. There is a right and wrong way do it. Getting excited and running off half cocked isn't' going to help you.

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

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?
