Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

THE BLESSING: Abundance of Fruit from the Old and New!

COME:
Matthew 13
12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance...

22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

51 Jesus said to them, "Have you understood all these things?" They said to Him, "Yes, Lord." 52 Then He said to them, "Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old."

HEAR:
Three things stood out to me today. Are they related? I don't know, let's take a look and find out together. Whoever has will be given more until he has an abundance... too much... overflow... Why? Because that is God's nature, to give to overflow. If you don't have the Kingdom of God working in you than you are not connected to THE BLESSING that the Kingdom of God restores to you. If you don't have THE BLESSING the only other option is THE CURSE. The Curse takes from you what little you have. THE BLESSING adds to you until it overflows into the lives around you. That's why Abraham was blessed to be a blessing. That's what THE BLESSING does!

So why did the word become unfruitful in this hearer of The Word of BLESSING? Because the idea of wealth became so powerful to him that he began to be consumed by it. He wanted that wealth so badly, maybe because he grew up poor, or because every business he'd tried on his own failed, or because he was afraid of being poor, or maybe he is like the rich young ruler that go his wealth by the covenant promises but failed to see how Jesus was tying the covenant promises to this deeper understanding of them. No most people, especially unsaved and religious people, are fearful of people taking from them or others motives. This is the only reason you could see someone preaching about seed/harvest and giving/receiving as wanting your money. You take an honest, prayerful look at Kenneth Copeland and you will find that he is trying to get something TO YOU not take anything FROM YOU. But there are charlatans out there. There are slick preachers that are out for your money. Jesus called these tares/darnels/weeds in the Kingdom of God. It is those men who probably got the message of wealth from THE BLESSING but failed to receive it God's way, so they turned it into a business.

Now a scribe is a teacher of the Law. Jesus says here that a teacher of the Law, should he get on board with the Kingdom of God can bring fabulous understanding, deeper understanding of The Kingdom from both the new and old covenant. Jesus, among other things, was actually prophesying the ministry of Paul here. He was showing that a proper understanding of both old and new will give a fuller understanding of both.

LESSON: 
This is a lesson the Church could use. We have for many years failed to understand the old covenant, what it is and isn't. We failed to understand THE BLESSING of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jesus, and Me/You. THE BLESSING makes rich and adds no sorrow with it. So THE BLESSING causes you to be fruitful, multiply, fill up, subdue, and have dominion. That is why Jesus used covenant verbiage when he said the seed becomes unfruitful. You cannot serve God and Money. But if you serve God then money commeth! And it comes in abundance, to the full, until it overflows! God's interested in causing you to be the distribution center! The blessing recreates the Garden of Eden everywhere you go. That's what it did for Abraham and Joseph, and David, and anyone who would follow in it. In the Garden Gold and Silver grew right on top of the ground. So God is not concerned about you having wealth or material things.

So what happened in this seed that made the man unfruitful? He got caught up in the cares of wealth. He was  so concerned with getting money, how to get money, how to make more money, that he failed to enter the Kingdom of God ways of doing things. God's ways are Ask and Receive, Knock and Open, Seek and Find, and Sow and Reap.

How many times have I switched jobs looking for the next big thing, tried this project or that MLM business trying to make it rich. All the while God is saying sow, water, wait... Work this Kingdom. The first harvest off of one seed isn't big. But if you sow that harvest it gets bigger, and then sow that harvest and it gets bigger.

What does it mean to sow? Sow money? Yes and No. You can sow money into the Kingdom and not receive a harvest. Money isn't seed. However the heart-faith-action behind the act of giving is the seed. When God asks you to start writing a book, a song, a blog, go to work for a company you don't know much about, move to another state, etc etc Those are all seeds as well. Abraham left Ur and Haran. That was seed too.

So by gaining a proper understanding of the old and new covenant I can understand THE BLESSING which is THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Then I understand giving and receiving an abundance and I can operate in obedience to God and not seeking a buck. Then I can focus on writing what HE told me to write, not because it will or won't make money but because HE told me to. I become focused on getting God's Words into people rather than getting money from them. If I post a comment on a blog somewhere, is it to get people to follow my link and buy my book, or was it truly to add to their conversation and BLESS them!? Now we are talking Kingdom!

DO: 
Seek God about what I'm doing, saying, and working on. Make sure I'm doing what He has assigned me to do. And just as importantly STOP DOING anything HE has NOT assigned me to do.

PRAYER: 
Show me the things I need to focus on and those I need to cut out. Thank you for clarity and focus in my work, making my hours productive for The Kingdom of God.

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.
