Power!

Power! 


     David had the people bring the Ark back to Israel on a cart. This was not the God prescribed plan of action. God had previously established that it must be carried by Levites and that they must carry it by the polls. In this case it was on a cart, which had previously carried who knows what unclean things. It was treated as a show piece and not as a holy sacred thing. The oxen stumbled and Uzza put his hand to stabilize it and died because of it.


     The raw power of God was released into this man and it killed him instantly. It was this same raw power of God that hit Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5 and killed them. However it also the same power that was used in creation and the same power that raised Jesus from the Dead... 
 
     The Spirit of God hoovered over the waters in Genesis one... The Word (who is God, who is the Word)(John 1) said LIGHT BE! That single explosion is still expanding over 6000 years later violently. That same WORD said "MAN BE IN OUR IMAGE..." That same statement caused Jesus to come and rectify the mess of the first man to ensure that MAN BE IN OUR IMAGE would still come to pass.



     That power now dwells in your mortal body, quickening it... making it alive. It is that same power that BURST onto the scene in Acts 2 empowering 120 people to turn the world upside down. Every time you come in contact with someone, if you are saved, you have the potential of releasing that power... 
 
...the power that created the universe, the power that created man, the power the raised Jesus from the dead, the power that created miracles, signs and wonders in the ministry of Jesus and anyone ministering in Jesus Name from the beginning to now...


     ...THAT POWER could be released from you the same as it was the day a woman with an issue touched Jesus and it left Him! 


     THAT POWER was released... BUT it caused different reactions depending on how it was handled. That creative power killed three people on two occasions because it was mishandled. In 1 Chronicles David's mishandling of it caused another man to die. The POWER of God is serious, weighty, electric... 


     Take a moment to reflect on how you may have mishandled the power. How could I? The WORD IS the POWER OF GOD. The word is power. The power is the Word. The Spirit of God is God. God is the Word. The Word is God. The ARK contained the Word and Power and Presence of God. The three (Power, Word, Presence) are inseparable. To mishandle one is to mishandle the three. 


     To mishandle the Word of God is to mishandle the spirit and power of God. I find that sometimes I've mishandled it by ignoring it, treating it as a non important activity. Sometimes I've mishandled it by choosing something else. Sometimes by not believing it. If God says healing is His will in His Word, which he 100% unmistakeably and undeniably does... and I refuse to speak his word into my health especially when sickness is attacking me... I am treating his word as less important than my symptoms. If He tells me to go somewhere, do something, say something, work somewhere, take part in some activity, volunteer here, write this or that... and I do not, I either choose not to, or ignore it, or become distracted... I mishandle his Word which is His presence which is His Power... 


     To mishandle the Word of God when he gives it is to say that you don't want His help... which makes it MUCH harder to hear Him in trials, temptations or any other crisis and therefore MUCH harder to heed his Word. This is where people die and others say "God must have wanted an angel in heaven..." Or some other such non sense. They have been mishandling His Word and therefore don't know His Word. Yes... sometimes disobedience will cost a life, yours or someone else's.

    If I am called to minister to people in location A, but I'm still working as a shoemaker in location B because I've grown so accustomed to ignoring the leading of God... how many people will miss out on the blessing God wanted to bring because of me? 


    Darrell... DO NOT MISHANDLE THE WORD OF GOD!







Exodus 25

13 And you shall make poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold. 14 You shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, that the ark may be carried by them. 15 The poles shall be in the rings of the ark; they shall not be taken from it.


1 Chronicles 15

11 And David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for the Levites: for Uriel, Asaiah, Joel, Shemaiah, Eliel, and Amminadab. 12 He said to them, “You arehouses of the Levites; sanctify yourselves, you and your brethren, that you may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel to the place I have prepared for it. 13 For because you did not do it the first time, the LORD our God broke out against us, because we did not consult Him about the proper order.” the heads of the fathers’


1 Chronicles 13:6-12 (New King James Version)

6 And David and all Israel went up to Baalah,[a] to Kirjath Jearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up from there the ark of God the LORD, who dwells between the cherubim, where His name is proclaimed. 7 So they carried the ark of God on a new cart from the house of Abinadab, and Uzza and Ahio drove the cart. 8 Then David and all Israel played music before God with all their might, with singing, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on cymbals, and with trumpets.
9
And when they came to Chidon’s[b] threshing floor, Uzza put out his hand to hold the ark, for the oxen stumbled. 10 Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Uzza, and He struck him because he put his hand to the ark; and he died there before God. 11 And David became angry because of the LORD’s outbreak against Uzza; therefore that place is called Perez Uzza[c] to this day. 12 David was afraid of God that day, saying, “How can I bring the ark of God to me?” 

Exodus 37

Making the Ark of the Testimony
 1 Then Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood; two and a half cubits was its length, a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height. 2 He overlaid it with pure gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold all around it. 3 And he cast for it four rings of gold to be set in its four corners: two rings on one side, and two rings on the other side of it. 4 He made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. 5 And he put the poles into the rings at the sides of the ark, to bear the ark. 6 He also made the mercy seat of pure gold; two and a half cubits was its length and a cubit and a half its width. 7 He made two cherubim of beaten gold; he made them of one piece at the two ends of the mercy seat: 8 one cherub at one end on this side, and the other cherub at the other end on that side. He made the cherubim at the two ends of one piece with the mercy seat. 9 The cherubim spread out their wings above, and covered the mercy seat with their wings. They faced one another; the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat.

Exodus 37:5
And he put the poles into the rings at the sides of the ark, to bear the ark.

Deuteronomy 10:7-9 (New King James Version)

7 From there they journeyed to Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land of rivers of water. 8 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister to Him and to bless in His name, to this day. 9 Therefore Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brethren; the LORD is his inheritance, just as the LORD your God promised him.) 

Genesis 1

The History of Creation
 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Acts 5

Lying to the Holy Spirit
 1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. 2part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? 4 While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”
5 Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. 6 And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.
7 Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 And Peter answered her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?”
She said, “Yes, for so much.”
9 Then Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” 10 Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. 11 So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.
And he kept back
 Romans 8:11
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.



Matthew 9:21-23 (King James Version)


 21For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
 22But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. 

Luke 4:32
And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.

1 Thessalonians 1:5
For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

Hebrews 1:3
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

2 Corinthians 6:7
By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

First Draft First Novel... Done! On to Edits...

So... I completed the first draft of my short novel White Noise - The Tower (Episode 1). 
You can read it (warts and all) below. I'm going to go back through and start editing (I already have). But it's mostly done now. I've also roughed out a book cover (we'll see if I stick with this direction).

Of course, I'm taking a big risk by calling it "Episode 1"... that means I have to write Episode 2, 3, & 4 at least. (That's where I have the story sketched out to at this point.

I hope you enjoy!

(Click here to read online) OR, email Me@DarrellWolfe.com and I'll put you on a list to be a beta reader when the final edits are done.

First round of critiques for Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise"

One of the scariest things for most authors (especially fiction authors) to do is open their work to the blatant critique of others. The author got to know their work so well, they know the backstory (that never made it onto the page), etc.


This very intimacy makes them blind to the things the reader sees immediately.

As Ernest Hemingway famously said, “The first draft of anything is *crap.”
I put out the 1st scene of Distortion, "Street Noise", for a writers critique. It was quite illuminating. I chose not to take it personally but learn from each point. Some things I agreed with, some I didn't. Some were clear craft mistakes while others were stylistic choices I could take or leave.

I have a feeling that my re-write will be so much better due to this experience. I also found a critique buddy (Hey Ashleigh!) who I can work with as I go through re-writes.

Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise" can be read in its current form (as of today) in the second draft on my It…

Vote @GovGaryJohnson for President in November 2016

Gary Johnson #Libertarian For President #LiveFree | #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
After much thought, review, and internal debate this past 12 months. I have taken a stand. I endorse Gary Johnson, Libertarian, for President of the United States of America. I will be voting Libertarian at every level (President, Senator, Mayor, School Board... etc) in November 2016.

I ask you to support a common sense approach, and to run from the Tyranny of Donald Trump AND Hillary Clinton (and their parties).

When men and women are free from government and corporate interference, they are the happiest and more prosperous people.

You and I may have honest intellectual disagreements on the moral quality of one choice or another, and we can debate and discuss those choices openly and freely in a free society.

However, as long as you are not harming my person or property, and I am not harming your person or property, we should not attempt to control each other through government force. We should each be free to…

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

#Election2016 Clarification:
I heard another talk radio guy (Grant Stinchfield) jump on the Trump Train this morning... another person claiming to be a conservative who is so blinded by his hate for Hillary Clinton, he cannot see that the devil he chose is worse than the one he rejects.

Hillary and Obama combined couldn't harm this country as bad as Trump could. That's what worries me most about this coming election. But here's the thing Grant doesn't get. He thinks I'm voting for Gary Johnson because of Trump.

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.  Read on (HERE) to find out why...

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…

Hello.... Welcome

I'm setting up this site to be a single HUB for all of my various creations. I'd rather not hand out a different business card to each person, as the topic of interest changes and I happen to have written about it.

Since I'm a Multipontialite, I figured it fits to have a single hub. If it works for Seth Godin, it works for me!

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!!  #Pokemon #Fan
OK... so several years ago I decided that the song "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" was my favorite Christmas song.

Then, after learning about Hippos, I decided they were one of my favorite animals.

This morning, I found a Hippo Pokemon set to the Christmas song... and I just HAD to share!
