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.

First Draft First Novel... Done! On to Edits...

So... I completed the first draft of my short novel White Noise - The Tower (Episode 1). 
You can read it (warts and all) below. I'm going to go back through and start editing (I already have). But it's mostly done now. I've also roughed out a book cover (we'll see if I stick with this direction).

Of course, I'm taking a big risk by calling it "Episode 1"... that means I have to write Episode 2, 3, & 4 at least. (That's where I have the story sketched out to at this point.

I hope you enjoy!

(Click here to read online) OR, email Me@DarrellWolfe.com and I'll put you on a list to be a beta reader when the final edits are done.

First round of critiques for Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise"

One of the scariest things for most authors (especially fiction authors) to do is open their work to the blatant critique of others. The author got to know their work so well, they know the backstory (that never made it onto the page), etc.


This very intimacy makes them blind to the things the reader sees immediately.

As Ernest Hemingway famously said, “The first draft of anything is *crap.”
I put out the 1st scene of Distortion, "Street Noise", for a writers critique. It was quite illuminating. I chose not to take it personally but learn from each point. Some things I agreed with, some I didn't. Some were clear craft mistakes while others were stylistic choices I could take or leave.

I have a feeling that my re-write will be so much better due to this experience. I also found a critique buddy (Hey Ashleigh!) who I can work with as I go through re-writes.

Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise" can be read in its current form (as of today) in the second draft on my It…

Vote @GovGaryJohnson for President in November 2016

Gary Johnson #Libertarian For President #LiveFree | #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
After much thought, review, and internal debate this past 12 months. I have taken a stand. I endorse Gary Johnson, Libertarian, for President of the United States of America. I will be voting Libertarian at every level (President, Senator, Mayor, School Board... etc) in November 2016.

I ask you to support a common sense approach, and to run from the Tyranny of Donald Trump AND Hillary Clinton (and their parties).

When men and women are free from government and corporate interference, they are the happiest and more prosperous people.

You and I may have honest intellectual disagreements on the moral quality of one choice or another, and we can debate and discuss those choices openly and freely in a free society.

However, as long as you are not harming my person or property, and I am not harming your person or property, we should not attempt to control each other through government force. We should each be free to…

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

#Election2016 Clarification:
I heard another talk radio guy (Grant Stinchfield) jump on the Trump Train this morning... another person claiming to be a conservative who is so blinded by his hate for Hillary Clinton, he cannot see that the devil he chose is worse than the one he rejects.

Hillary and Obama combined couldn't harm this country as bad as Trump could. That's what worries me most about this coming election. But here's the thing Grant doesn't get. He thinks I'm voting for Gary Johnson because of Trump.

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.  Read on (HERE) to find out why...

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…

Hello.... Welcome

I'm setting up this site to be a single HUB for all of my various creations. I'd rather not hand out a different business card to each person, as the topic of interest changes and I happen to have written about it.

Since I'm a Multipontialite, I figured it fits to have a single hub. If it works for Seth Godin, it works for me!

Thanks for stopping by, Darrell

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!! http://buff.ly/1PhijYQ #Pokemon #Fan

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!!  #Pokemon #Fan
OK... so several years ago I decided that the song "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" was my favorite Christmas song.

Then, after learning about Hippos, I decided they were one of my favorite animals.

This morning, I found a Hippo Pokemon set to the Christmas song... and I just HAD to share!
