                               Adam is 1

 


Enoch is 6: It takes 6 generations to get a man who will walk with God like He wanted… God is so thrilled he TOOK HIM! God's a Tooker…

Shem is 10: It takes 10 generations until man is SO messed up He's got to reboot the system. Shem is the last of Jesus Line to be born PRE Flood. Incidentally, some believe Shem IS Melchizedek, See Also, who is the one who blessed Abraham. 

 

Jesus is 78 in the line. By then, the bible says, Sin had reached it's fullness. Jesus came to pay it all! But not only did He come… HE WAS ALREADY HERE! 



John 1

The Word Became Flesh
 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
was
God. 2He was with God in the beginning.

HE… The Word… Jesus… HE… The Word!

Just think… before time… HE IS…

What was it like just 100 year ago? Today is 03.08.2010… What was it like in 1910… how much has changed?

NO:

TV

Internet

Cell Phones

Computers

Cars as WE know them

Pluming, electricity, sanitation… as WE know them…

It was the decade that America started her downward plunge into darkness by aborting the rules God placed in the constitution about no Federal Banks.

What about just five more 100's ago? 1510

Just a few years after Martin Luther received his revelation of Faith not Works!

The Protestant Reformation was just taking place… America was a dream of a few explorers.

That is only 500 of the 6,000 +/- years that have elapsed since God said:

Let US create Man in OUR image… after OUR likeness…



Just think… THE WORD was there… before all of it. Everything you see. Every building and every plant and every person. All came from and through THAT WORD. Just think of the enormity and power and integrity of THAT WORD.


 


 

Before Adam came…

HE knew, HE saw, HE planned, HE IS… Not only HE WAS… HE IS…

RIGHT this very moment, God IS before time:

HE IS creating ADAM…

HE IS Blessing Abraham…

HE IS turning toward Jesus being born into his Human form…

HE IS turning from Jesus as HE takes on Sin for humanity…

HE IS pointing Martin Luther to the Word…

HE IS charging through Europe and the USA with a Smith Wigglesworth…

HE IS charging through the USA and Africa with John Lake…

HE IS working through your ancestors…

HE IS watching your birth, however amazing or terrifying the event was, after all not everyone has a rosy past, YET HE IS… right there making sure you would arrive…

HE IS watching you take your first steps…

HE IS watching you read this…

HE IS watching you get up tomorrow…

HE IS receiving you into Heaven, or allowing you to choose hell… in the future…

HE IS… WAY MORE than any problem you have… What's the problem?

You know it… maybe… with your head… but you don't KNOW IT! You are as good as your word… GOD is as good as HIS! If you don't believe HIS word it's because you don't believe Him! Not only is God as good as His Word… HE IS his WORD! Whatever God is The Word is! Therefore to doubt the Word in anyway is to doubt God! Read, Believe it, and Meditate on it until it becomes more real to you than anything else around you or even in you… only then have you come to really believe it!

Food for Thought…

Writing Craft: Getting UnStuck

Getting UnStuck - Story Structure Guiding The Path It quite common, especially for Pantsers (those who write by the seat of their pants with no real outline or plan ahead of time), to get stuck in your story. At some point, we hit a roadblock, writer's block, and can't think of what the story should be next.

Story Structure Clues

This is, in part, because we don't start with the outline that the stricture Outliners do. We can't even comprehend where the story will be going in order to outline.

However, if we have an idea of the path (the skeleton of the structure), we can start to see a way through the hazy fog of the future. But even then, we can get stuck like I did last night.

I'd written my way through and just couldn't imagine what needed to happen next. I know where the next major plot point is going to be and what (generally) will happen (Destiny is caught by the FBI but Ash escapes). But it's way to early to write that in the story timeline. If I wr…

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…

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…

Writing Craft: Show / Don't Tell

Lessons I've learned about writing...

In the world of creative writing, no phrase or lesson is more repeated than the famous:
Show Don't Tell What does that mean, exactly? It means don't give me a fact but show it to me. Let the actions of the character tell me he's nervous. Let the characters actions and motives be so tied to the setting, that they direct what details I get to see.


Read this:

Dr. Briar sat nervously on a hand-made leather chair with mahogany inlays. 
Now read this:

Dr. Briar sat fidgeting in a hand-made leather chair, rotating his middle finger around on the mahogany inlays. 
What's different?

Dr. Briar sat nervously on a hand-made leather chair with mahogany inlays.  Dr. Briar sat fidgeting in a hand-made leather chair, rotating his middle finger around on the mahogany inlays. 
We show him fidgeting and rotating his finger, this gives us more reason to talk about the inlays. But could this be better? Sure, there are a thousand ways to write this sent…

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…
