Harpoon Faith! Be bold to lay hold!

EMIC Second Service 11AM.
03/04/2012
Continuing our study on the Word of God for 2012! What about 2012?

The people of God had just seen God break down Egypt through miracles, part the red sea, rain heavenly bread, bring an abundance of quail supernaturally, bring water out of a rock... etc, etc... Yet here they are doubting God's will at every turn.

Moses sends the spies out to survey the land and this is what 10 of the 12 said:

Numbers 13:23-3327 And they told him, and said , We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.28 Nevertheless (but) the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled , and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. ...
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying , The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
Notice, it's not that they actually were grasshoppers, because we know that in just 40 short years the inhabitants of Jericho were locked up tight in the city out of fear of these Israelites. (Joshua 2:9-13). It's because they had an inner image of themselves as incapable that they were unable and unwilling to take the land.

Not only that, but this fear drove them to direct disobedience to God's word to "GO!" Later we read that God said "ENOUGH! You are going to stay our here and die!" Then they went out to fight when he told them to stay because of the fear of loosing out on the promise. Had they repented of their unbelief and fear and asked for forgiveness God would have atoned their sin (which was provided for by the sacrifices) and led them in. But they stayed in disobedience and then went in disobedience.

You just can't go any place and any time you feel like it. You go as you are LED. Now, lest we get all high and mighty and say "Those crazy people, why didn't they just listen?"; We've done the same things countless times in our lives too. We hear God say something, we disobey, confuse ourselves and then try to go and do it after the time has passed.

I can say, in many ways, that this has been me the last few years. I say all the right things, around people, but don't see much in the way of results. Inside I'm dwelling in doubt and unbelief. But I've made a quality decision that it is going to change. It started last year when I started meeting with a man of God who get help me get outside of my head and see the God sized picture. It's been a slow process with lots of back steps and moving forward again... But forward I am moving. 2012 is MY YEAR! It's a year of great wealth and great opportunities. That is what the man of God, my prophet, Kenneth Copeland, said on 12/31/2011. Yes Lord! You said it, that settles it!

Today at Church Pastor George Pearsons said:


Time, will either be spent wearing you down through worry, or building you up through TheWord!!@EMIC

So we then take a look at the word in Matthew:


Matthew 11:12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence , and the violent take it by force .

"Take it by force" is the word Harpazo. It is the word we use to get the word "Harpoon". It's an aggressive seizing.


Harpazo:Definition
  1. to seize, carry off by force
  1. to seize on, claim for one's self eagerly
  1. to snatch out or away

This is not a light word. It's not like someone gives you something and you politely accept the gift and nicely unwrap the paper... No this is a taking by force. God has given you something and the devil is trying to steal it from you. You have to go into enemy territory and take it by force. This is a commando raid, a spiritual swat team, a Heavenly Navy Seal Team...

So take the Word of God, and Harpoon your BLESSING into your life!

Joshua 1410 And now, behold, the Lord has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the Lord spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old. 11 As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. 12 Now therefore, give me this mountain

Here is a man, Caleb, that has been waiting for 40 years to possess his promise. He could have spent the last 40 years developing in bitterness against the people that caused his delay, or second guessing his original faith to move in and possess. He could have faded out for any number of reasons and in any number of directions. BUT, he didn't. Caleb meditated on that Word from God that it was HIS LAND so much that it supernaturally strengthened and elongated his life. Caleb was as strong, if not stronger, at 85 years old as he was at 45 years old. He was even more ready to take the land of promise after 40 years of meditating on that promise.

Yet, a few years of self caused delay and we are given up to hopeless statements of bygone days and and things that didn't happen. We are so wrapped up in thinking about the giants in the land that we never see that we have overcome those giants before we took our first step toward them, due to our God's burden removing, yoke destroying Anointing!

Time, should never slow me down or cause me to want to quit. Time is ALWAYS on ME side because the greater One who is in me is outside of time and space. The Word as a seed is planted, my harvest is coming. All I need it time for a breakthrough. Time is not against me, it is for me. Glory To God!

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…

Topos Transitions

Transitions are rough. I've been through many seasons of my life where I had to make a transition. At each and every stage it was tough. There are always things you miss about the last season, things you are hoping for in the next season, and things you can't wait to be rid of in the season you're leaving behind.Whether you are sensing the winds of change blowing you out of your current situation, you are in the middle of the trip, or the winds are at your back and you settling in to your new spot... Remember this word: ToposTopos is a Greek word and it essentially means:Your strategic position of opportunity and influence.Make your Topos count today, wherever you are.Darrell




White Nose | Scene 3

The Aleve took effect with the help of two breakfast whiskey sours. It had been three days since his tussle in town and he still couldn't sleep, despite the nighttime cocktail.
Beams of light broke through the trees outlining Ash's house, tucked back off of the main road by a mile long rock driveway. One such beam was tanning his pale country face as he rocked on an old wooden chair he'd carved himself. Whittling was one of his most relaxing and profitable talents.
One look in the mirror each summer reminded him that he only retained two colors, pale Irish freckle and redneck red. Ash was careful to avoid too much contact with summer's star.
Dust down the drive revealed the presence of a visitor before the sound of tires on gravel confirmed it. Ash hasn't been visited by more than three people in the eight years he'd been back in town, so he picked up the hunting rifle, just in case.
The scope showed the local sheriff, his friend Dan. He didn't usually com…

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger????

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.Ask a Vet with an amputated limb if they feel stronger now or before the limb was taken... I'd bet before. Injury, all injury, is by definition a lack of perfection. What doesn't kill you, more often than not,  makes you weaker, more timid, more cautious, slower... Not stronger.Sure, we can learn from the past, become more resilient. We can use pressure, under certain circumstances, to build resistance based strengths, like a body builder pushing back on the resistance of the weights... But by no means is the saying: "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger" an accurate portrayal of Truth, nor should it EVER be spoken to someone in pain.The enemy comes ONLY to steal, kill, and destroy, that's why the pain/attack came, not to make you stronger but to kill you.God's Grace brought you through but He didn't bring you to...God's Grace can heal you too.Selah#LiesAboutGod

Writers Block - How do you write when you don't know what to write?

So, I recently had a comment on this blog. I'm not sure if it's ligit but I think that it's a question a lot of writers ask:


"... I was curious to find out how you center yourself and cⅼear your tһoughts before writіng. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly dߋ take pleasurе in writing, however, it just seems like the fіrѕt 10 to 15 minutes is wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appгеciate іt!" AnonymousJuly 1, 2017 at 4:31 PM


The way this is phrase means that this is either a spam comment or it's just a google translate comment. Not sure. Nevertheless, it's a good question.

Having a mind that is clear isn't necessary for writing. Writing requires thoughts. My professor once said: "Throw up on the page, we can clean it up afterward". And that's done wonders for me. If you are going to write, just start. You could end up with something so long and winding that you…

What is a Topos? A strategic position of opportunity and influence

What does Topos mean?Topos is a Greek word meaning: "Place, or Opportunity"
Properly:Any portion of space marked off, as it were, from surrounding, space Metaphorically: The condition or station held by one in any company or assemblyopportunity, power, occasion for actingA spot (general in space, but limited by occupancy; whereas chora is a large but participle locality). As used by me: Topos is a strategic position of opportunity and influence
Topos: Your Calling Everyone has a God given calling on this earth. There is something you were created and designed to do. What you are doing now may be "The Calling"; or, it may be the calling for this season of your life. Either way, you are either in your Topos, or you need to find it.

As you read the stories of biblical heros like Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah, Peter, and Paul... etc... you find that God put them in the right place to do the right thing at the right time.

They ended up in their Topos, …

II Corinthians 11:23-27 NKJV
Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my  own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness—

Freedom From vs Freedom ToBe

For many Freedom is understood through the lense if being free from...Addiction
Pain
Loneliness
Him/Her
The Situation
The Job
Debt
Poverty
Etc.So we follow the rat race seeking whatever we think will make us free. When that doesn't provide the freedom we sought, we seek another fix, and another... An endless cycle of seeking freedom but never being free.What if Freedom has nothing to do with whatever jail you are in, however you've defined your personal jail.What if Freedom is about becoming WHO you were always meant to be... And in that pursuit all the "other" (addiction, pain, the jails) falls off when you aren't even looking...You don't know when you got "free from", you just look back and realize you don't have all the issues you had. You have battles in front of you but you have definitely won some battles too, and you didn't​even notice you had won.It's as though the act of becoming a butterfly was so profound that you have trouble…

White Noise | Distortion | Scene Two | TBC

A few THC pills, more than necessary, stopped Ash's hands from shaking as he filled a short glass with ice and Jameson's. Topping it off with a sleeping pill, and the night was sure to embrace him soon.

The night air bit his nose as Ash stepped out onto the patio; he'd spent worse nights than this in the deserts. Ash zipped up the sub-zero sleeping bag and settled into the hammock. Night owls and bats were still out this time of year and they're combined symphony was the final step to his sleep concoction.

***

The mess hall wasn't as full this time of day. The food was dry by late afternoon but it was never very good anyway. Ash twirled spegettiini on his fork as two guys nearby chattered on about what they'd do when they get home.
Suddenly time slowed down. The roof caved in and a compression wave through him against the wall. He slid down the wall losing consciousness. 
When he came-to a few moments later there was total chaos. Other buildings were collapsing, m…

Become not do

From 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:As Emerson once put it, “What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.”It's one thing to put on a smile at work on a bad day because the customer doesn't need to know about that. You got a job to do. We've all had to do that and it's ok.It's another thing to lie to those closer to you, or worse yourself. Who you are produces what you do. If those two are not aligned it creates cognitive dissonance, spiritual tremors, anxiety breakdowns.The solution isn't to stop doing good or well... though that's exactly what you'll be tempted to do to some the cognitive dissonance.The solution it's to become who you were created to be. As you become, your doing gets better as a byproduct.#ScratchTheNewLimb

Hi! My name is Darrell G. Wolfe. I am a wealth of random information and I make complicated things simple at DarrellWolfe.com.

I have a knack for absorbing information, breaking it down to its root elements, and teaching it to others.

Most importantly, I help purpose-driven people to understand their place in His-Story and provide them the tools they need to fulfill their unique position of opportunity and influence in this world (their Topos).
