Minister and Ministry. What is it?

MINISTER:

Acts 26:16 NKJV But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.

Romans 15:16 NKJV that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 9:13 NKJV Do you not know that those who minister the holy things eat of the things of the temple, and those who serve at the altar partake of the offerings of the altar?

Ephesians 3:7 NKJV of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effective working of His power.

1 Timothy 4:6 NKJV If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.

1 Peter 4:10 NKJV As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

What is a minister? Ministry? I was told once that a certain christian singer wasn't in ministry because he didn't get people saved at his concerts. Therefore he is christian entertainment not ministry. Really? Is that the definition? He may not be everything you want him to be, but I have turned to his music time and time again when I was going through things in life and found the comfort of the Holy Spirit, Encouragement, Power to move on. What is ministry then anyway?

To Minister (also the root for administer):
Noun
Properly, a chief servant; hence, an agent appointed to transact or manage business under the authority of another, One to whom a king or prince entrusts the direction of affairs of state, A magistrate; an executive officer. A delegate; an embassador; the representative of a sovereign at a foreign court; usually such as is resident at a foreign court, but not restricted to such.
Verb
To afford supplies; to give things needful; to supply the means of relief; to relieve. To give medicines.

Minister in the Greek here in Acts 26 is: uJphrevth├č Huperetes 
Definition:
"servant an underrower, subordinate rower any one who serves with hands: a servant in the NT of the officers and attendants of magistrates as -- of the officer who executes penalties of the attendants of a king, servants, retinue, the soldiers of a king, of the attendant of a synagogue of any one ministering or rendering service any one who aids another in any work an assistant of the preacher of the gospel"

So we find here that there is no such limitation to the word minister, and therefore ministry, that only if people get saved are they ministered to. There are ministers who's ministry is primarily to the saved. How can I minister salvation to saved people? Unless there is more to it.

Of course... there is! The Gospel is not just about getting people saved to prevent a trip to hell. That is a very shallow look at the work of Jesus. The Gospel is about restoring THE BLESSING to us. To help us to enter into the Kingdom of God and all that entails. Now of course salvation and forgiveness of sins is the entrance or door to that life. But salvation itself is about more than forgiveness from sins. You are saved from sin, sickness, demons, fear, hell, poverty, and everything else listed as a curse in Deut 28!

So to be a minster is to administer or supply or provide relief to the people you are assigned to. Anyone operating in the dispensing of any part of THE BLESSING into someone, including the simple gift of supernatural joy is a minister and in ministry at that point.

Do you doubt your gift has anything to do with ministry? Well financial freedom is part of THE BLESSING so if you are a banker or accountant that is your ministry. Doctor? Healing is part of THE BLESSING. Singer? Joy and Encouragement are part of THE BLESSING... there is no Godly career on earth that doesn't tie into THE BLESSING. So no matter what you are called to do by God you are a minister!

Praise God! Darrell G. Wolfe

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

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…

Getting Unstuck. Be Still. Be Led. Be Open

I learned a few lessons in getting unstuck this week. And surprise surprise, it all came back to Be Still. Be Led. But also, Be Open... to the new, weird, and extra-ordinary ways God wants to speak to you.


I feel stuck. 
I have felt stuck for nearly my entire life. I have mountain top experiences, camp when I was young, Kairos a few months ago. I do well afterward, I get up in the mornings fired up to spend time with God. I have my bible and notebook ready, I'm praying. I'm connecting. I'm getting things out of it. Then... I disconnected. I sleep in one morning and don't get up in time to do my routine. Then one day, weeks/months have gone by since I've been in my bible or prayer time. This has happened for as long as I can remember, Jr. High even.

After enough time passes with my loosing all that momentum, I've fallen back into old behavior and thought patterns. I'm over eating, under sleeping, and engaging in behaviors and thoughts that are counter producti…

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…
