Water Walkers!

01/20/2010

Matthew 14 Part Two

VS 24-36


 

    Jesus has settled matters between He and His Father. It is now time to attend to the business of the Kingdom of God of which He is THE Ambassador. Jesus sees them struggling in the storm on the water, having gone out ahead of him. Jesus walks on water… the men say "Surely He is the Son of God." Yes the MEN say that… and He IS! However… is THAT the reason He can walk on water? No! For starters: If that were true He would be the only one on record. But He isn't… There were two men on the water that night… Granted Jesus did it better… but He IS the Son of God… the ONLY perfect man… Of course He did it better.


 

    So Jesus says: Yeah peter… Come on out. Peter gets out and walks on water. It doesn't say whether it was one foot, ten, 100 feet. The Fact is Peter ALSO walked on water, so something else is going on here besides Jesus being the Son of God.

    Interesting Points to Observe:

  • Peter walked on water
  • Peter BEGAN to sink.
    • Have you ever began to sink? Ever stepped out onto the water and said… oh my… looks like I'm sinking.
      • NO! You couldn't get "oh my" out before you were under. You don't BEGIN to sink, you SINK and HARD!
    • The fact that Peter BEGAN to sink required a miracle!
  • Jesus gets Peter, pulls him back up, they walk together back to the boat.
    • Jesus Replies: " Peter, it's ok, you know I AM the Son of God, you didn't have a chance there. You're not at my level yet there buddy."?
    • NOPE!
    • Jesus Replies: "What's up? Where's your faith? Why are you doubting?
    • YEP! Jesus FULLY expects His people to operate like He does. Anything less is not acceptable. Forgiven by mercy and covered by grace… but not acceptable.
  • Jesus walks in such a great anointing, ONE DAY after the bad news that people, (MORE THAN ONE) are healed by the mere touching of his garment! Why… what caused the anointing on Jesus to operate at that level?

Jesus Spent Time in PRAYER!


 

I make a commitment, here and now.

  • I will spend time, even just five or ten minutes, every day in undistracted prayer!
  • Separate from my time in the Word! Pray through, and get direction.
  • Don't stop if something is bothering you, until you get the matter settled inside of you.
    • Nothing outside may have changed.
    • No money came in, no answer from the doctors reversing their report.
    • But inside, you received it and there is a knowing that ALL IS WELL!
    • Then you walk out, the interpretation of that prayer!

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.
