BLESSED VS BABEL

BLESSED VS BABEL:
Mark 87 They also had a few small fish; and having blessed them, He said to set them also before them.
12 But He sighed deeply in His spirit, and said, "Why does this generation seek a sign? Assuredly, I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation."
I'm thinking of signs given to the people of earth, and the BLESSING. When we read that Jesus BLESSED the fish we take that for granted. We get the idea that He did was we do: "Thank you Father for this Food." That would be thanking the Father for the fish. But it says He BLESSED the fish. What does that mean? What does God say when He BLESSES something?

Gen 1:28: God BLESSED: "Be Fruitful, Multiply, Fill Up the Earth/Increase, Subdue and Have Dominion"

Gen 8:20-9:18; God had just wiped the planet of mankind and started over with Moses. Some scholars believe that God wiped the planet of an earlier creation before making this earth and before making man, so this may have been the second time the earth was destroyed with a world wide flood.

In Gen 9:1: God BLESSED: "Be Fruitful Multiply, Fill Up the Earth/Increase"

Notice that this second BLESSING is missing the authority to have dominion and subdue. Although these still belong to man, they have been stolen by Satan and will not be back in man's total control until Jesus restores the full blessing back to them.

So again now, men have been given a right and responsibility. GO, Be Fruitful, Multiply, Fill Up the Earth. This is not speaking, only, of natural procreation and having babies. It is a command to fill out all areas of life. Art, Science, Farming... Do what is in the heart and spirit of man to do... build societies that are fruitful, multiply in ability and understanding, fill up the earth with your creative inventions. God is saying: "I'm a creator, now go be creative!"

Of course, we see quickly, in Gen 11 a precursor of what will happen latter both in Israel (with the Pharisees) and in the Church (with the Catholic Church and then with denominations)... God starts a movement and man turns it into a monument.

Gen 11, Not only did the people have one language but they had one speech. Speech here is one way of talking and thinking, one business, one act, one mannerism. They were unified in thought and action. Instead of being unified to do what God said: GO fill the earth; they decided to stop going and settle here and build a monument.

God says that they could accomplish anything with this kind of unity. Unfortunately the Holy Spirit had not been restored to the hearts of men and we saw in Noah's pre-flood experience what this kind of unity in men leads to, under satanic rule. God already promised NOT to destroy the whole earth again, so we CANNOT allow man to operate under THIS kind of unity again.
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
So man's speech is confused. He confused their speech. So they called the place babel (confused). The bible says that this is where the many languages of earth began. We have seen from Sci-Fi films and shows that language comes easy to man. We've created languages in the past 50 years. "Klingon or Klingonee" and "Elvish" were both created by fiction authors to enhance their characters, and are now and accepted "2nd Language" in parts of society.

It is likely that this word confused here is just as likely to mean a confusion of thought, than that of a language. They were saying the same things, but not grasping each others meanings. Nail? What nail? 1 inch nail? 5 inch nail? Hang nail? What are you talking about? They were not able to think and act as one and so they abandoned the project. They were no longer of one heart and mind any longer. They all took off in search of new homes. People who could seem to get along went together.

This is why, even today, business meetings people can't ever seem to agree on what needs to be done and how to do it. We've had to impose artificial structure and hierarchy onto people to get things done. "Agree to disagree" is the common end all for arguments, "those in charge said do it this way, that's how we do it".  But this isn't how it was in before Babel. They all thought and acted as one living organism. They didn't need command. They all wanted the same things.



When I am wrapped up in my life, not paying attention to God, God's Word, God's Will... When I get inward focused, my life gets confused. I cease to know what I am, what I want, what I am doing, and why I am doing it. Things get foggy. I get the feeling like I'm just spinning my wheels. That is why so many people to go work, to get money, to get food, to get gas, to go to work... they even call it the hamster wheel. There is no meaning or purpose. If you find that your life doing hold meaning or purpose, that you are just going through the motions, that is a result of the BABEL. Confusion causes a lack of purpose. That's why they all gave up on the tower. It was hard, confusing, and lost it's meaning to them.

Only true clarity, focus, and purpose is found in God and God's Word. So God is saying BLESS: Be Fruitful, Multiply, Fill Up the Earth. The Church is to be doing just that. We need to start saying what God is saying, we need to start doing what God is doing. If I am only concerned about my little life and issues, I fail to see the bigger picture. God wants to use me to BLESS an entire world.

My prayer needs to expand to be praying for my partners, my vision for my finances needs to expand to be about what I can do for others, and the projects my partners are involved in. I got the 2011 Partner Update from Kenneth Copeland Ministries and although I gave to them this past year, I didn't feel a part of what they did because it was "they". I wasn't actively praying for KCM and believing God with them for provision and results. I wasn't really being a partner.

My life this past year, for the most part, was about me, my job, my finances, my needs... etc... boring. It's time to get THE BLESSING on my mind, expand my prayer to include not just others in my circle of influence, but all the work my partners are doing throughout the world. It's time to get BLESSING on my mind.
BE FRUITFUL
MULTIPLY
FILL UP THE EARTH/INCREASE

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. 

Comment on this post or the Author Fun post about the Book Cover. Any feedback will be taken into consideration.


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!
