Exceed...

2 Peter 1:4 NKJV

Exceed Great Precious Promise... These are the words I want to extract from this verse. Primarily Exceed.
To Exceed:
exceed

EXCEE'D, v.t. [L. excedo; ex and cedo, to pass.


1. To pass or go beyond; to proceed beyond any given or supposed limit, measure or quantity, or beyond any thing else; used equally in a physical or moral sense. One piece of cloth exceeds the customary length or breadth; one man exceeds another in bulk, stature or weight; one offender exceeds another in villainy.



In practical terms. If water were to exceed the boundaries or limits of a glass, it would then overflow. If a pressurized bottle of soda were sealed and filled beyond it's boundaries it might explode. These are natural boundaries. There are also boundaries set by an authority. For example the fire department places a sign in all businesses and public places designating a limit or capacity. The capacity is well below the actual size of the room and the rooms ability to fit more people. A whole section of the Cowboy stadium was closed not due to a lack of seats but due to the authority that said the seats were not fit for the capacity. It would be unsafe to occupy that space. Most capacity limits are in reference to getting the people back out of the building safely in the case of a fire.

However, suppose for a moment that you packed the room with people. In fact let's suppose you went beyond ridiculous and packed people in so tight that everyone was body to body and there was hardly room for air in between. Would that room truly be at capacity? Actually no, contortionists could fit more people in, and there is air above them... So what does capacity refer to? Authority. So what if you wanted to seat more people than the room's sign said you could and the authority said you were not allowed. You would either need to:

  1. Deal with it and do without
  2. Suffer the consequences of disobedience
  3. Appeal to a higher authority! 
A higher authority could override the decision of the first authority. Due to Adams disobedience mankind relinquished this world to Satan. He is named the god of this present world of darkness. He is a thief and a liar. He comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. ALL nations under his control and absent of God the Fathers' Word are void of life and desolate. Satan is the authority of this Babylonian system called the world. 

The 10/40 window is a perfect example of a world without God. These people, including the Middle East, Asia, and parts of Africa, are the least reached by the Word of God and the Gospel of Christ, as a DIRECT RESULT they suffer more hatred, wars, violence, death, sickness, poverty, demons, and fear! Right in the middle of that mess lies Israel, once called Palestine under roman rule and ottoman rule until the 1800's. At the time of Israel's Re Founding the land was a desolate wasteland. Israeli and Arab nomads filled the desert waste. Nothing would succeed or grow there. As the WORD was brought back by Israel the land became fruitful and multiplied and filled up the earth. Read Israel 101, the land is bringing fruit and technology in some cases way ahead of the US and China. The USA went from a nomad land to a land producing the best and brightest. UK, Germany, France... All touched by the Word of God, despite religion not because of it. As each of these lands pull back from the Word as a country, they suffer loss, theft, death, and destruction. These are the work of the devil. Only as we pull back from God do these occur in a persons life or in a society.

So what? The devil kills. What am I going to do about it? Among other things, I have authority over my life not the devil. Jesus ripped the keys from him and gave them to us. I can appeal to THE higher authority. I am IN that system but not OF it. I am an ambassador of THE kingdom that rules over all!

Colossians 1

God willed to make known what are the riches of the Glory of this mystery, which is: "Christ In Us" AND "the Hope of Glory".

Christ is IN ME. The Anointed one and His Anointing is IN ME! I have the hope, eager expectation of a glorified body in the glory of heaven! I have the greater one IN ME, how can I fear? How can I waiver? How can I doubt? ONLY by not being totally saturated with the knowing that CHRIST IS IN ME! He is inside of me right now! I am who He says I am, I can do what He says I can do, I have EVERYTHING He says I have! I open my heart to the Word of God today to hear something that will change my life forever!

It is HIS WORD IN ME that overcomes the devil in my life. Attacks WILL come, I WILL OVERCOME!
It is HIS WORD IN the USA and it's Leaders that will overcome. Attacks WILL COME, and we WILL OVERCOME!

GLORY! EXPLODE past the devils failed attempts to place limits and boundaries on your life that GOD never said you had to have! Satan is not your authority! Walk in the KINGDOM of God!

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.
