Opening Scene of Job 2020

Job 1:1
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job;
and that man was blameless and upright and one who feared God and shunned evil...

Jebediah Orion Blackburn is the wealthiest man alive according to Forbes and Wikipedia. His family called him Job for short. He never took to any of the other nicknames and eventually he made it his moniker of choice. The press even caught on to it and began to publish articles with titles such as: "Job Strikes Oil Again". No one really knows for sure what Job is actually worth. He owns six of the top ten fortune 100 companies. He is a major share holder in real estate, entertainment, cruise lines, resorts, technology, weapons and arms, and many other fields. Disney has turned to him time and time again for help establishing their theme parks. Job has held the top defense contracts for 20 years running; out preforming and out bidding every competitor at most turns. 

Today he is making the hardest decision he makes every day... which tie to wear. The silk tie collection boasts of over 100,000 choices. His dressing room is larger than some people's houses and the hangers rotate on a voice command. There is a touch screen image catalogue of every tie, but Job often prefers to see them up close instead. Normally there is hardly any hint of indecisiveness. Job would rather fix a mistake than loose an opportunity. Despite the enormous lifestyle he carries he still goes to the same church he has since he was a boy. The First Baptist Church of Dallas, thanks to his generous tithe checks which primarily go to the church, has also grown with him. He still finds time to serve on the board once a month and although he is too busy and too protected by media types to serve during service he still teaches a small class in the mornings on Christian Financial Principles to a pre registered limited class. Today he will be giving the offering message and despite the fact that he talks to much larger groups and audiences in his business life, speaking at the church still makes him as nervous as a little boy each time and today he just can't seem to find the perfect tie. 

His wife and children still attend the church too, all seven sons and three daughters. They don't really attend because they want to, but rather because they don't get their allowance without sitting right next time him every Sunday morning no matter how hung over they feel from the night before. Their allowance is extremely generous and doesn't stop no matter how old they get. The oldest is 25 and is only permitted to miss only when he is on deployment for the military. 

As he straightens the red and white tie he chose and brings it into it's perfect knot. There is a knock at the door.  The limo is here and it's time to go. During the drive downtown, some kids are playing in the streets and he thinks back to the times that he and his best friend Abram would ride bikes and shoot the imaginary bad guys. Abram moved to Israel over 20 years ago, with his father and nephew, and doesn't make it back to the states as often as they'd like. He too became quite successful and in fact is the only real challenge in the world to taking Job's wealth status away from him. They still meet at conferences from time to time, but the meetings are always business and usually require them both to leave shortly after. They haven't had a good chat in a long time.

During the Limo ride the news speaks of the fatalities in Israel and the struggles going on there. He says a quick prayer of protection over his friend.  The radio is turned off with a waive and a nod leaving silence for the rest of the ride to church.

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

How to cultivate Joy... Olivier's Response

Recently I've been praying about direction in my life. I feel as though the wheels are spinning in the mud and I'm not gaining any traction or going anywhere. Among other things the Lord has started moving me toward praying about studying redemption. I've spent so many years studying the finer points of prosperity, healing, etc... somehow I lost the message of sin, the cross, redemption. Redemption, however, includes all those other things like prosperity, healing, peace, joy, etc...

So now with a new perspective, years later, I need to start a study of redemption from Genesis to Revelation all over again. Come to find out that my friend Steve Wilson has been teaching a class on Redemption at EMIC all the Wednesdays services of most of March and April 2013. As I work on Wed nights with the Youth Group I miss adult service those days. I'm downloading those now to start listening as I begin my own study of redemption.

The Lord moved me last night to re-watch the last 30 mi…

So today was nice?

I woke up late with no where to go, and nothing to do. I think some people call that sleeping in on a Saturday.
My head didn't hurt as much as it usually does. So that was nice.

By about 3pm ish, I actually left the house for a while. Went to Walmart, Sonic, Wendy's and In-n-Out.

It was really nice outside. Cool enough not to feel hot, but warm enough for a t-shirt, breeze outside, 70's?


I did not feel especially down, or moody.


I did the dishes. Several days worth. That took an hour and half. But my wife baked angel food cake, and macerated strawberries for strawberry shortcake. So have two sinks full of dishes again tomorrow, but the desert was lovely.

Other than the errand, and doing dishes, we basically watched Gilmore Girl's re-runs all day. I forgot how much I REALLY enjoyed that show. The wry wit, and comic timing are impeccable, it's so hard to find great writing, directing, and acting like that. Punchy.





Yet... I left the day with the usual empty feeling.
