DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

The Simple Will of God...

     Type in "The Will of God" into a google search... you come up with the most amazingly silly things spoken by pastors and theologians. One of the top searches has a man saying that God's sovereign will has him causing things that he forbids. The idea is that he forbids a thing and dislikes it but then wills it through his sovereign will.

     What utter nonsense! God's will is his Word. God's Word is his will. This is not a complicated topic. It takes a good theologian to help you mis understand the bible.

    Someone says the bible says to pray: "If it's thy will..." Yes... and No... In certain matters there is room for question. Should you go to Rome or Moscow for your next ministry trip? Should you take this job or that job? There could be room for error here on matters such as these that require a specific leading of God.
 
     James here in the book of James Chapter 4 is addressing pride in an individual that is making plans on his own, outside the leading of the Holy Spirit. The subject is pride and boasting. The understood subject is a person doing their own thing. Of course in this instance he would have no way of knowing what may come tomorrow, and would be better off saying: "If God wills..." to learn to submit to God.

     However Jesus tells us in John 7:17 that if anyone wills to do the will of God that he will know what is of God and what isn't. This means that anyone who is born again, and spirit filled, and praying for the will of God with the right heart (a heart of obedience) will know the will of God.

    What does knowing the will of God look like? Philippians 4:7 and Colossians 3:15 say that the Peace of God will rule and guard your hearts and minds. That means with any decision you will follow the Peace of God. Look inside and pray until you find that peace. You could even try an experiment. When you are faced with options A or B... Say out loud just as a test: "I will do A." If you get a check inside say out loud "I will do B." If neither option comes with peace just be still for awhile, a day or three if need be until you find that peace settling inside.

     Certain matters are not up for debate. God is sovereign. When a sovereign God makes a sovereign decision it is final! God's word, where ever he has declared his will, is final authority on the matter. His Word is of a higher authority than any fact.

     God has set in his will that salvation belongs to anyone who will receive it! That is FINAL! No One that wants into heaven will be left out. It is not God's will that anyone go to hell, but he will respect your decision to go there.

     God has set in his will that healing, prosperity, and abundance belongs to everyone who will believe. God has set in his word that his benefits are for all who believe. You recieve salvation, healing, prosperity, and the rest of his benefits the same way. Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth, with no doubting.

     So the next time you need something, don't pray "IF it be thy will..." Go to His word, find out what His will is and declare it so!

  3. Psalm 116:12
    What shall I render to the LORD For all His benefits toward me?

  4. Mark 11:24
    Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
    Mark 11:23-25 (in Context) Mark 11 (Whole Chapter) 
  5. Deuteronomy 28

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

I am a story teller! Time to flex my story telling...

In the spirit of sharing what I'm up to this weekend, here is a short scene I posted on my fiction blog a while back. This is being used an example for a new trial project I'll talk about at the end of this post.


The Closet (originally posted on my fiction practice blog here). 
It was the sound. It washed over his mind, like a shower on the inside. Water landing on pavement, concrete, and wood; as though beating a million tiny drums. The distant sound of the tiny river, washing down the sidewalks into the gutters. Ash always slept with the window open, but most especially on rainy nights.

We are no closer now to getting to the bottom of this, than we were when it started.

The rest of the house was asleep, but he couldn't find sleep. The air shifted slightly, and he felt he wasn't alone. Ash sat up straight, and at the edge of his bed sat a man. He was wearing blue jeans, a T-shirt, and a well kept beard. His hair was pulled back into a pony tail, and he smiled. The man'…

I am a WRITER!

WRITERI am a writer:Yesterday was incredible! I received revelation and clarity for 2014. I AM A WRITER! Jeff Goins talks about making that declaration being the most revolutionary part of his career. Everything changed when he decided that. It's amazing what clarity will do for you.

I was being torn between what I was becoming passionate about and what I thought I was supposed to be doing. For years everyone has told me that I should be a musician and in audio mixing. I pursued that career this year. I even took an audio course. I know that is still part of my calling. Music and Audio is in there somewhere. But it's not my focus for 2014. I am a writer. I'm going to explore that solely this year.

The moment of realization hit me when my wife, who has always seen more in me than I see in myself turned to me pointed out that even during my audio class I didn't talk about it. I didn't read the books and find new books and get "into it". It was mostly focused …
