How to Protect You and Your Family in the Last Days, with Rick Renner and Kenneth Copeland!

How could I put into words and notes all that was said by Rick Renner on Sunday Morning. It would take a long time to write it all down. I have pages and pages of notes. Let's see if I can highlight some things. Either way, you NEED to watch the second service especially, but both are worth watching, maybe with the pause button and note pad ready?

Last Days!
2 Timothy 3
1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was. 10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra--what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. Timothy was the pastor of Ephesus, which was the darkest, most sinful, city in all of the known world at that time. There were thousands of statues/idols of generals and Greek gods and demigods. They were not marble white as we see them today, most were flesh colored, so they would be the ancient equivalent to pornography on the streets of the city.  Many of the members of the church would have been from the slave community and forced to endure commands by owners that contradicted their now born again conscience.

2 Timothy 4
1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

"Know this..." is the Greek word Gnosis/Ginosko which means to know for sure without doubt, it's a strong word.

"Last Days..." is the Greek word Eschatos which means last of the last. Last day of a month, last month of a year, not the last half but the LAST.

"Perilous"  is the Greek word Chalepos which means exceedingly fierce. (Dangerous, Perilous, High Risk).

The only way to properly define a word is to let scripture interpret scripture. The only other place you find this word in the New Testament is referring to the madman of the Gadarenes.

Matthew 8:28
28And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils , coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

So if we take a look at the things surrounding this entry of the word, we can see somethings that apply to the last days today, it's still the same devil doing the same things. Here are some words that stand out from the account of the madman taken from Matthew, Mark, and Luke, and what they refer to or mean for us today.

CHALEPOS the Last Days and Us:

  • Tombs - Death (Modern Preoccupation with Death, Goth, vampires, Ghosts, etc)
  • Unclean Spirit (Always refers to a spirit of sexual uncleanness)
  • Untamable - Unable to bring into order or proper behavior, in all realms
  • Cutting himself - Self Mutulation
  • Naked - Nudity and Dishonoring the Body
  • Restlessness
  • Insanity
  • Driven to the wilderness and cemetery- there is something driving people to evil

There is a preoccupation with death, vampires, ghosts, etc in today's world. Goth started as a fad, but there are whole stores now that cater to it. Movies about vampires, ghosts, dead people, witches, psychics, etc... These are point to this preoccupation with death. The mad man had the spirit of sexual uncleanness which drove him to be nude and they could not keep him clothed. He may vary well have opened the door to his condition through sexual things. This generation is obsessed with sex. Regular TV during prime time showing shows with people trying to get into each others beds. The Supreme Court ruled that it was free speech and allowed cable to produce shows during kid watching hours that promote sex, violence, and cussing. The land has become untamable. There is a "new" phenomena that has hit so hard that large numbers of Christian girls at Christian private colleges are cutting themselves to relieve pressure and stress. People everywhere are restless and taking anxiety pills. There is even a new condition for restless leg syndrome. These are all signs of a fierce and dangerous time!

Back to 2 Tim 3:2, The words "Shall Be" come from the word Eimi which is I AM, all about self and me, me , me generation. Lovers of Self is from two words that don't belong together:

Philautos - Phileo (Love toward others, intimate, like a kiss) and Auto(where we get automatic, toward self) They will take love meant for others and love themselves highest of all.

This generation will be thankless, they used to acknowledge God and chose to remove Him, forcefully, from their minds and society. Lack of thankfulness toward God will lead to sinful lifestyle. If you reject God your heart is darkened? What does a heart do? It pumps blood throughout the whole body. So if a societies heart is darkened it pumps sin and death into the whole society, and that's what is happening now to the USA, and the world. They proclaim to be wise/enlightened/better informed and become morons.

Showdown!
Ultimately there will come a moment when it's all exposed. It will be in the same likeness of the exposure of Jannes and Jambres with Moses. These names are only recorded in the book of 2 Timothy. Writings outside of the Bible record for us in history that these are the names of the two famous sorcerers who challenged Moses before Pharaoh. Moses threw down his staff and it became a serpent. Highly revered by the Egyptians. So the two magicians threw theirs down and did the same. But Moses ate theirs and then he took it up and it became a staff again. So God used their game and showed himself victorious. So likewise today, in this era, there will be a showdown of the powers that be. Also likewise we will be likely outmatched by as much as two to one. But God's power will reign victorious! There are dark days ahead, but there is light in the land of Goshen! An Exodus from Eygpt type experience is coming, a  throw down... a battle of powers like that of Elijah and the Prophets of Baal on the hilltop.

The Balloon! ... I AM A BALLOON! 
So Pastor George comes up and takes a balloon. It is flat and shapeless. He begins to blow some, and it takes some form. More air, more form. Until eventually it is a full balloon and he ties a knot on the end.

So it is with the Word of God. All scripture is God Breathed, THEOPNUESTOS. It was God's air that gave light to the darkened earth, and life to a lifeless Adam! It was God's air that gave the Word shape. He breathed some revelation and we got the first give books of the bible, and breathed again and we got some more. Every time He breathed more came.  Eventually He was done and He tied a knot on the end and called it The Word of God/Bible.

If you take the balloon that Pastor breathed into... do you know what you would find? Air? Breath? You would find Pastor George! His DNA is all over the inside of that balloon. And so it is, that God's DNA is all over that Word of God and it is the very essence of what you are in your spirit as He breathed into you and your spirit was Born Again! We are a new creation! Any faith we have is God's faith. It's all Him! We faith with God faith!

Faith doesn't have issues with a house or car or money... the only thing that hinders faith is people! Believe Only! Jesus owns the planet now! It all belongs to Him, and you are His body! Get your image right! The past is paid for! Wash sin and past from you mind, it's gone!

The Solution!
The answer to the darkness in 2 Tim 3 is found in 2 Tim 4. "Preach the Word!" Spend time in the word, not to teach it to others, but to feed your spirit. Only through feeding on the Word can you be strong and mighty in God. All lack of faith is rooted in a lack of time feeding on The Word. 

How often do I study, and study, but it's for information, for a book, for a blog, from a meeting... but it's not time spent eating the Word for myself. I must separate time in the Word for study, and time in the Word for spiritual food. There is a difference. The main difference is the time it takes to read, pray, and  then shut up and listen what the Spirit would have you read and pray about. It's the time where the Word is speaking to YOU that makes all the difference!

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!
