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!

Book Review: Name of the Wind

So a while back, I was walking through Auntie's Bookstore, in Spokane, WA. I've read pretty much everything ever written by Ted Dekker, Bill Myers, CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, and many others.

I told her I like the Fantasy & Science Fiction genres, and I was looking for a new author.

"I have just the one," she said. "Follow me." She came out from behind the counter and we meandered up and down a few aisles. "Here it is," She turned and handed me this book:



"Hm. I've never heard of him," I replied.

"He's Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Chronicles of Narnia all wrapped up into one amazing story," she was quite excited. "You'll love it!"

The woman handed me a few others to consider and then went about her duties. I took pictures but didn't have any money to spend that day.

Later, because I'd mentioned it, my boss bought it for my birthday.

I just finished all 713 pages, and I am AMAZED!

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…

Order. Chaos. In Between... The Bible

The Dark Ages were primarily due to religion.  Religious leaders had the audacity to claim that only they could interpret the Word of God for the simple-minded laymen. Even clergy of lower stature couldn't read the bible. This led to the strange fantasies, whimsies, and odd ideas of any number of so-called "Priests". 
Enter Martin Luther, circa 1517 A.D. He had the outrageous claim that all men were saved by Faith, and not deeds required of them by Religious Leaders. How did he get this idea? Reading the bible for himself.
The Reformation directly caused the Enlightenment.
When men were allowed to read the Bible for themselves, instead of being told what to believe by so-called leaders, they found a God of order. Therefore, the Earth created by this God would have order.
This thought led to Newtonian Physics, printed books, engines, light bulbs, Einstein's theory of relativity...
All science, medical advancements, everything you drive, see, eat...

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.

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…

Focus... Unfocused

There's a version of my writing that is organized, thoughtful, researched, helpful, even inspired at times... And then there's the other stuff. The other stuff is wild, incoherent, off the cuff, straight from my mind to your eyes, unfiltered, unedited. I've tried to separate these into different sites, combined them again, separated them again.... *sigh*I have too many thoughts, too many opinions, I know too much to ever make any of it make coherent sense on one website.So, here's my newest attempt to make it work... My blog, the one under my name, DarrellWolfe.com, it's for my randomness. This is where I'll post whatever I want, whatever thinking about, randomness.I'll link out to posts at my other sites, be they few or many, and you can find the organized stuff there. Let's see if that helps me keep some semblance of order.Darrell Wolfe Version 1,037



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




Credit Building

I just met three people working at Carl's Jr. We had a great talk about income, credit, and demystifying credit. So many people need a financial doctor and don't know it. Or they do know that they need one but don't know how easy it is to have one. I gave them a few tips, my business card for credit, my friend Ben's business card for Insurance and Investments, and told them to come see me so we can get into more details.They didn't realize that someone would be willing to help without having to pay a consulting fee or go or a class.I love helping people. Love it. And as Zig Ziglar said: You can have anything you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want. I don't concern myself with whose going to make me a sale, who I can get something from, etc. If I simply help everyone I can, without regards to my reward for it, the reward will come as a byproduct.It was a great reminder that I'm on the right path.Darrell

About Me

My photo

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).
