"Four Steps To Tapping the Anointing to Abase"


05.10.2010

On the Morning of 05.10 The Lord took me on a side track from my normal daily reading to meditate on Philippians 4:4-13


Philippians 4


4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. 10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ[b] who strengthens me. 


After meditating this chapter a moment the Lord spoke to me about my lack mind sets.

He said: " You will NEVER learn to abound, until you learn HOW to ABASE!"

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" is about learning how to tap into the anointing of God in every situation.

CHRIST : ANOINTING

The word "Christ" literally means "Anointing" or "Anointed". It refers either to The Anointed One, Jesus, or in some cases more specifically to the Anointing that He is Anointed with. The Anointing is the burden removing yoke destroying power of God.  (Isaiah 10:27 and 61)

Therefore:

"I can do all things through the anointing of the Anointed One who strengthens me"

How was Paul content in every situation? Because through the Anointing he was victorious over every situation. The boat wrecked, but an Angel was there to give direction and the Anointing on Paul saved the whole crew. That anointing caused the snake bite to have no affect and the village person to be healed. Every time a tough time came, that anointing was there to bring him up and out. The act of giving and receiving allowed Paul to abound more often which was nice.


But so what? How do I tap this anointing today? What does this mean to me? What does it take to activate this anointing in a period of drought or tough times?

Do I:

  • Cry
  • Scream/Shout
  • Jump up and down
  • Roll around on the ground
  • Play just the right music
  • Dance
  • Read the word 4 hours a day
  • Get involved in service to others
  • Any other tradition or idea I've had when the anointing is brought up?

These are all good things in their own right. But no. According to Paul there is a master key to getting victory in abasing times:

Steps to Abase Accurately:

  1. Rejoice
    1. ALWAYS and AGAIN over and over and over again
    2. Every time Anxious, Worried, Fearful, Grief, Depression, Lack thoughts come: REJOICE
    3. These are ALL EVIL and are to be resisted and rejected EVERY TIME!
    4. There is NO room for depression, worry, grief, or fear in the life of a victor. 
    5. This is where that song, dance, and jumping can help. RE: Joy Do Joy again. Decide as an act of your will and a quality decision to JOY. Sing a song of praise, dance a little, start thanking God for everything you can think of thanking Him for. Start saying: "I love you Father." Over and over until it impacts your mood and mode. 
  2. Let your GENTLENESS be known and experienced by EVERYONE you come in contact with. Especially those who are hard to get along with. Faith without Love is dead and powerless. Be gentle with people but hard on demonic emotions like grief, fear, and depression. 
  3. Be Anxious for NOTHING! None means None. Period. You do not allow or accept worry, fear, or anxiety of any kind. These are not simple biochemical reactions in your body, they are bred and contracted by demonic thoughts trying to take root in you. Reject any thought of anxiety as you would the thought of drinking water from a port-a-potty. 
  4. In everything with:
    1. Prayer- General Requests
    2. Supplication- Specific Requests
    3. Thanksgiving (Believe you have received it already and thank Him for it)
    4. Let your requests be made known to God. Out Loud, AND written preferably. 
Result of the "Four Steps To Tapping the Anointing to Abase"


" Peace, which surpasses, bypasses, and overrules, all natural understanding, will KEEP your Mind and Hearts (Mind, Will, and Emotions). 

That is how you Abase. You abase by knowing it's God's will for you to be the victor not the victim. You Abase by taking those four steps and making them your hearts FIRST response in any and every situation. You Abase by being victorious through that abasing and causing the abasing to bow it's knee to you. 

You do NOT abase by bowing to it, and saying things like: "Well I guess it's God's will". You abase by not abasing. You abase by taking his word and smashing that situation to a pulp. ONLY when you know how to do that well and skillfully and consistently, will you ever be ABLE to truly Abound. Abounding with an abasing mindset will bring you out of abounding. You must Abase with and abounding mindset in order to be always victorious. Let the situations come! My God can handle that!


If you don't know how to start Repeat this prayer out loud every day, even better three times a day, until you are living the outcome of your request:


Father,

As an act of my will and a quality decision, I reject fear, anxiety, depression, regret, and images of defeat and lack. I choose Joy! Again I choose Joy! Every time those demonic emotions come up I choose Joy instead.

I choose to be gentle today. Gentle with people and with myself but not with the devil. You are here. You are watching me. I will treat others as the priceless vessels you valued enough to pay for with your own blood.
Today, I lift up before you my needs both general and specific:
General:
  • Family
  • Finance
  • Health
  • Work-Career
  • ______________________.
I thank you that can Have confidence that you hear me and because you hear me I have the petitions I have laid out before you. 

Thank you for:
  • New Job
  • Better Job
  • Better House
  • Better Cars
  • Peace and Joy in my Home
  • Vision, Direction, and Guidance
  • ________________________
I know that even now you are already in motion bringing in all the supplies, wisdom, insight, concepts, ideas, witty inventions, and resources I require to accomplish your will and plan in my life and to use me as a vessel to prosper others. 

Peace if the governor of my decisions, mind, will, and emotions. I accept and expect peace from here on out. At every turn I will stop to check for that peace before proceeding. If peace is not there I will pray, repent, and listen for your direction and wisdom. 

I can do ALL THINGS through the anointing of the Anointed One which causes strength to rise in me. That same anointing that raised Jesus from the dead now dwells in me strengthening my mortal body, mind, will, and emotions. 

I have what I ask, believing, in prayer!

Thank you Father. I forgive anyone who I feel has hurt or wronged me or inconvenienced me. I ask your forgiveness for anything I've done to hurt or inconvenience others. 

You are my hiding place, my shelter, my green pasture, my still waters, and you are preparing a banquet table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil and my cup overflows!

You are my strong tower, I run to you and I am safe. I give you all the honor and glory and praise. Thank you Father for my:
  • Wife
  • Kids
  • Men of God to Train me and watch over me
  • Mentors
  • Favor
  • Blessing
  • Honor
  • Life
  • Provision
  • Supply
  • Surprises
  • ___________________________

You are my everything. I honor You today. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Oh I worship you Father. I give you praise. Hallelujah. Yes Father. Yes and Amen. It is done now to me as you have said in your word. Thank you for it... 

Amen.

An Open Letter: John Stumpf, Wells Fargo Board, and Policy Making Departments

On 12/28/13, I wrote the following letter to the then CEO & President of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf. It was in part, a response to the LA Times Article and the poor response from Wells Fargo leadership.

I later worked for the executive office and saw how they handle these letters. They assign them to a paper-pusher who could care less. They draft a form response, and it gets tallied in the statistics.

By the time it makes it to the CEO, it's only data in a pie chart. "We had 365 complaints this month. x number of complaints about checking, y number about sales practices, Etc." They tally it up, if it's not a big enough stat, it gets zero attention. Most things that do require attention get just enough to make it go away, but never deal with the root.

I was one of many hundreds who spoke up loudly and actively for years before 2013 and years after. The news cycle of 2016 showed that it cost them $185 Million dollars to ignore the feedback their frontline Team Membe…

Writers Block - How do you write when you don't know what to write?

So, I recently had a comment on this blog. I'm not sure if it's ligit but I think that it's a question a lot of writers ask:


"... I was curious to find out how you center yourself and cⅼear your tһoughts before writіng. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly dߋ take pleasurе in writing, however, it just seems like the fіrѕt 10 to 15 minutes is wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appгеciate іt!" AnonymousJuly 1, 2017 at 4:31 PM


The way this is phrase means that this is either a spam comment or it's just a google translate comment. Not sure. Nevertheless, it's a good question.

Having a mind that is clear isn't necessary for writing. Writing requires thoughts. My professor once said: "Throw up on the page, we can clean it up afterward". And that's done wonders for me. If you are going to write, just start. You could end up with something so long and winding that you…

Topos Transitions

Transitions are rough. I've been through many seasons of my life where I had to make a transition. At each and every stage it was tough. There are always things you miss about the last season, things you are hoping for in the next season, and things you can't wait to be rid of in the season you're leaving behind.Whether you are sensing the winds of change blowing you out of your current situation, you are in the middle of the trip, or the winds are at your back and you settling in to your new spot... Remember this word: ToposTopos is a Greek word and it essentially means:Your strategic position of opportunity and influence.Make your Topos count today, wherever you are.Darrell




White Nose | Scene 3

The Aleve took effect with the help of two breakfast whiskey sours. It had been three days since his tussle in town and he still couldn't sleep, despite the nighttime cocktail.
Beams of light broke through the trees outlining Ash's house, tucked back off of the main road by a mile long rock driveway. One such beam was tanning his pale country face as he rocked on an old wooden chair he'd carved himself. Whittling was one of his most relaxing and profitable talents.
One look in the mirror each summer reminded him that he only retained two colors, pale Irish freckle and redneck red. Ash was careful to avoid too much contact with summer's star.
Dust down the drive revealed the presence of a visitor before the sound of tires on gravel confirmed it. Ash hasn't been visited by more than three people in the eight years he'd been back in town, so he picked up the hunting rifle, just in case.
The scope showed the local sheriff, his friend Dan. He didn't usually com…

Raindrop Dance

Raindrops dance all over my brain. A million tiny electrical signals buzzing just under my skull. A warm buzzing lays on my brain like a blanket after a cold winter awakening.

II Corinthians 11:23-27 NKJV
Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my  own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness—

I Hate My Birthday... Is that wrong?

“Let the day on which I was born perish, And the night which announced: ‘There is a man-child conceived.’ JOB 3:3 AMPhttp://bible.com/1588/job.3.3.AMP
It sounds melodramatic when I read Job say it; however, this has basically been my complaint for as long as I can remember. Job 3 shows an entire chapter of him wishing he was never born and cursing his birthday. I've always hated my birthday too, often telling people to keep me off of birthday celebration lists and calendars. I've made due with life but wished I'd have left it long ago... That hasn't changed but I'm starting to get the sense that shell is cracking. Maybe, just maybe, I won't hate and despise my birthday in the future, maybe I'll learn to accept that I'm here on Earth and be happy about it? That sounds like a stretch right now. Right now I'm just content with being in a place where I'm feeling maybe being alive isn't all bad... That's a huge step up from my past 36.5 years.…

What is a Topos? A strategic position of opportunity and influence

What does Topos mean?Topos is a Greek word meaning: "Place, or Opportunity"
Properly:Any portion of space marked off, as it were, from surrounding, space Metaphorically: The condition or station held by one in any company or assemblyopportunity, power, occasion for actingA spot (general in space, but limited by occupancy; whereas chora is a large but participle locality). As used by me: Topos is a strategic position of opportunity and influence
Topos: Your Calling Everyone has a God given calling on this earth. There is something you were created and designed to do. What you are doing now may be "The Calling"; or, it may be the calling for this season of your life. Either way, you are either in your Topos, or you need to find it.

As you read the stories of biblical heros like Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah, Peter, and Paul... etc... you find that God put them in the right place to do the right thing at the right time.

They ended up in their Topos, …

Order. Chaos. In Between... The Bible

The Dark Ages were primarily due to religion.  Religious leaders had the audacity to claim that only they could interpret the Word of God for the simple-minded laymen. Even clergy of lower stature couldn't read the bible. This led to the strange fantasies, whimsies, and odd ideas of any number of so-called "Priests". 
Enter Martin Luther, circa 1517 A.D. He had the outrageous claim that all men were saved by Faith, and not deeds required of them by Religious Leaders. How did he get this idea? Reading the bible for himself.
The Reformation directly caused the Enlightenment.
When men were allowed to read the Bible for themselves, instead of being told what to believe by so-called leaders, they found a God of order. Therefore, the Earth created by this God would have order.
This thought led to Newtonian Physics, printed books, engines, light bulbs, Einstein's theory of relativity...
All science, medical advancements, everything you drive, see, eat...
