WILL


WILL

Come with me on a journey to the middle east. The time is at or around the 40 AD’s. There is a man traveling with a group of people through the dusty roman built roads from Jerusalem to the town of Damascus. He is steadfast and resolute in his drive and passion to end the sect called “The Way”. He is a Pharisee, a conservative. The liberal wing party of the Sadducee  have been tearing down the fabric of the Torah. They deny the miracles of the prophets such as Elijah and Elisha. They have turned the worship of the One True God into a social gospel of morals and religious power. The signs of the Torah point to the coming of a great Messiah.
When Messiah comes he will set things straight. He will come and remove the Roman oppressors. Finally after centuries of disobedience the Jews are no longer being pulled away by useless idol worship. Then he came. There have been many false Messiah’s over the last few decades, but this one has turned the entire nation of Israel on it’s head. They thought they’d dealt with him by killing him at the hands of the Roman Guard, but then his disciples came and stole his body. Now they spread rumors everywhere of his resurrection which has served to spread this malicious sect all over the known world.
Now Saul finds himself on the dusty Roman Road to Damascus. He has papers in hand to arrest or kill man, woman, and child who would dare to follow this “Way”. He feels it’s his personal mission to see that the way is paved for Messiah to come and free us from the Roman oppression. Messiah must not come and find us yet again distracted by other pretend gods.
Suddenly a bright and blinding light!. The light is not just bright but it comes with a presence. The power emanating from it can be felt through his entire body. It pulsates and warms his very bones and spirit. He cannot stand under the power of it. He is not just caught off balance. The power of the presence so overwhelms him that he cannot stand. His legs become weak beneath him and he falls to the ground as though he were a dead man. There, laying on the ground surrounded by this light, this presence… a voice…
“Saul… Saul… Why are you persecuting me?”
That voice penetrates the soul and therefore must be heeded. He responds to this by a logical question:
“Who are you Lord?”
The voice responds: “I am Jesus who you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads. “
What response can he have to that type of power and authority? When all the religious trappings have been torn away and all the pretense removed… what is the response of this man who’s soul has been laid bare?
“Lord! What would you have me do?”
In our modern vernacular we might phrase it:
What do you want? or What is YOUR WILL?
Jesus doesn’t leave him there… he tells him that he will be shown what to do. Jesus doesn’t lay out the entire plan for Paul’s life there on the road. He simply gives him instructions to follow, which will lead to more instructions.
The Will of God is among the most sought after answers a new christian seeks and among the most confusing for many. What is the will of God? What does God will? What is He like? What is His will for mankind, for my family, for me? Do I have a call on my life? Does He have a perfect choice? If I’m offered two jobs how do I know which one God would will for me? Or do I simply sit back and observe my life as many do assuming that whatever happens is the will of God because it happened? This is a topic that need not be confusing at all. But there are foundational matters that must be settled to understand it. Therefore come with me on a journey to the Center of God’s Will!

Darrell's Reading List

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.
  • For a full list of all my book suggestions, see my Amazon Store.

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.
