Stand Your Ground!

Sunday Service 01/03/2010

Stand Your Ground!

Ephesians 6:

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore...


 The word "stand" is the Greek word: Hestemi. It means:

  • Set- as in concrete
  • Resolved
  • Resolute
  • Stubborn
  • In Military Application: Man your post, stand/remain steady at your post
  • In Essence: Be a BULLDOG! Aggressive, Persistent, and Determined to stand against ALL the wiles/schemes/plans of the Devil! 
There are VERY bad things coming for those who are in the World this Year. For many, like myself, this will be among the best years of our lives. However, for many this will be among the worst years. Finances, Governments, Health Care, Natural Disasters, and Crisis of many kinds are coming on a global scale. There are many going to be running for anything that smells stable. There we will be... the GLORIOUS Church...

We will:


14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—


We WIll be that light the world needs in dark and terrible times. We will be that house built on a rock totally undisturbed by the storm beating down on it. We will be the light on the hill, the salt, the preserving agent. They will come running and we will have an answer for all who ask us:

What is this HOPE you have... in the middle of all this chaos? How can you NOT be worried?


Winston Churchhill said:
"For a nation to try to tax or borrow themselves into prosperity is as a man who stands in a bucket and then tries to list himself up by the handle!"

This Nation, like others, has done just that. That stupid system of finance, based on rules that had to over rule the bible and the US constitution to come about is crashing around us. It is coming down. They will need answers and we will be there to provide for them.


One area I found that has been a weak spot with my ability to stand in life is my emotions. I get "hooked" by kids screaming or customers refusing to listen or understand. I get mad and frustrated because something isn't going the way I wanted it to. Enough is enough. In 2010 I refuse to be disturbed about anything or by anyone! I will be that rock, stable no matter what you say or do.

Word of the Lord to the Church of EMIC, by Pastor George:
"After the dust settles on 2010 you will still be STANDING!"

Standing is NOT a weak term. Not a term of struggle. It's a term with the image of a strong marine being attacked by a child sized enemy. He doesn't smile or laugh. He just stands, strong... cool... collected... able to act... but not in a rush about anything... It's the term and image of an enforcer! More on that later!

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…
