In Him


If we know who we are IN Christ Jesus than we cannot be fooled by other ideas or ideals. If I build a foundation inside of me who I am In Christ, In Him, In Whom... etc... Than I cannot be fooled by the voice of depression which try's to tell me things like: "You'll never make it" "You don't deserve to do..." "It's just not worth it." and so on.

Building a foundation of who I am in Christ is of the highest importance if I am to walk out a strong, CONSISTENTLY strong, life in God and For Christ. It's one thing to dedicated yourself to the life of God and Christian principles while you are in your mountain top experience, while you are at the camp, or the service, or you've just had some grand repentance and restoration. It's another thing to go back to school or work on Monday and live that out when you don't "feel" the experience any longer.

It has been said that "Faith begins where the Will of God is KNOWN." So what is the Will of God? Among the best places to start building inside of me, not just an understanding, or a mental agreement, but a reality, a knowing, an unshakable living of the truth of God's will for me, is to meditate on the truth of who I am IN HIM.

 Kenneth Hagin wrote a powerful mini-book called "In Him" ISBN 0-89276-052-4. You can purchase it from you local bible book store or from Amazon. I also found a PDF online at http://hopefaithprayer.com/online-books/.


So what are these kingdom realities? I am compiling a list of my favorite scriptures of In Him realities. However I also learned it's not enough to know them, memorize them, quote them or even preach them... It must be taken into the heart in order to over ride the base programming in your life. There are words, some say they are like broken records, that repeat inside of you. I, being a computer person, call them base programming. There are programs on your computer that run all the time. They tell the computer what to do, prioritize commands, run other programs for you. You put a disc in to watch a movie and all sorts of things run in the background to make that happen. There are command files just to run the sound, another for the visual and so on.

These command functions or base programs run without you being aware of them, so it is in your mind and heart. You may not even be aware of these programs, built of words and images and emotions, because you've never known to look for them. You can, however, detect them if you want to. Just be still for any length of time and you will hear some words, or have an emotion rise up. The next time you have an emotional reaction that you don't want, for example, anger, depression, frustration, lashing out... Stop, right then, what words were you speaking/thinking?

After you yelled, lost your temper, or blew up, did you here "It's just not worth it!" "Those people never..." "Why can't they just..." These are base programming. You are who you are, what you are, you react the way you react... because of base programming. You must begin to pause, identify, and challenge these programs and replace them with new programming if you want new reactions, new emotions, new life. The bible calls this renewing your mind.

You take the words, and replace them with what God said about the situation. You can't just do this in the mind though, it also must be in the heart/spirit. You must meditate. Meditate in the Hebrew understanding of it, means to speak, murmur, repeat aloud to oneself, imagine, etc. The idea is to consider the Word until the image becomes bigger on the inside of you than the image of defeat or lack or whatever you are facing.


Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Ephesians 4:23
and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
Joshua 1:8
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Memorization is a mind matter. Meditation is a heart matter. It with the heart a man believes and with the mouth confession is made to posses it. Both heart and mind must be engages in the process of reprogramming. Romans 10:9-10. Kenneth Hagin says on page 6, "When you talk about defeat you're talking about the works of the devil." This we know is true because Jesus told us in John 10:10 that the Theif ONLY comes to steal, kill, and destroy. If the devil is present he is there to steal, kill, and destroy. If there is ANY stealing, killing, and destroying it is because the demons are present. God NEVER puts sickness on someone, John 10 says that this is a work of the devil, and Deut 28 tells us that it's a work of the curse. Therefore if you experience defeat it is not of God. Jesus came to bring LIFE and BLESSING. *
John 10:9-11
New King James Version (NKJV)
9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come EXCEPT TO to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have LIFE, and that they may have it MORE ABUNDANTLY11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.



Therefore what are some IN HIM realities?


1 John 3:2

Beloved, now we are children of God...

I am a son of God! I am loved! He is my Father! He loves me and wants good things for me as any good father does. He wants me to succeed and prosper and be in good health. He gives me richly all things to enjoy! (1 Timothy 6:17)


John 15:7
7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will[a] ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.


I abide in Jesus, I allow His words to abide in me! I ask what I will, because his Word which is his Will abides in me, and it is done for me! 


2 Corinthians 5:17 and 21
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new...21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

I am IN CHRIST, in the Anointed One and in His Anointing! I have become the righteousness of God! I am His Righteousness! Not by my works but by His! 

Romans 8:1
 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,[a] who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
Romans 8:37
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Acts 17:28
28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’


As the righteousness of God I am under NO condemnation. I am more than a conqueror! I can stand in the presence of THE Holy God, Creator of the universe with total confidence because of His Son's sacrifice! Therefore I can stand before any man, woman, and any angel or devil with even more confidence. I am under no condemnation and I have the victory! I stand before Him alone! It is through Him I live and move and have MY being! 

1 John 4:4
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Psalm 91:7
 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.


I am of God! I am HIS CHILD! Greater is He who is in me than ANYONE or ANYTHING else! I have the greater one in me! I can face any situation. 11,000 people can fall on either side of me and I stand untouched! 

Philippians 4:13
13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.

I can do ALL THINGS through the Anointing of the Anointed One which strengthens me! All things is all things! There is nothing I cannot do or accomplish is if I always factor in the anointing!

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...

Hi! My name is Darrell G. Wolfe. I am a wealth of random information and I make complicated things simple at DarrellWolfe.com.

I have a knack for absorbing information, breaking it down to its root elements, and teaching it to others.

Most importantly, I help purpose-driven people to understand their place in His-Story and provide them the tools they need to fulfill their unique position of opportunity and influence in this world (their Topos).
