Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

When Truth Comes... It can take a few passes.

I'm reading John 4. The whole chapter.

Jesus comes talking to a Samaritan woman. Samaritans were considered half breeds between Jews and those who conquered Israel over the years. They wouldn't even drink out of the same pot. It was not dissimilar to the Blacks and Whites of the historic southern USA. There are still pockets of separation to this day in certain areas of the south. Jesus came talking to the woman, his disciples were surprised to see it when they came but they chose wisely to keep their mouth shut. Jesus knew, as all rational and spiritual men do, that all race separation is nothing but a tool of Satan to create distrust. It is when men work together, in God, that things really get done that better man's life and prosperity.

You see her religious nature when Jesus begins talking with her. He gives her a spiritual truth (living water) and she responds with a natural response (are you greater than our prophet?). He responds with a Word of Knowledge (a gift of the Holy Spirit) and she responds with a religious debate over places of worship.

The same thing happens today. You tell someone that it is God's will to heal them and they start debating about someone they knew that believed for healing and didn't make it. Or you tell someone about God's love for them and they ask about evolution, or my personal favorite: "Can God make a rock so heavy that He can't lift it?"

She ends the debate with saying that Messiah will come and settle the debate. People usually do this today by saying: Let's agree to disagree... or we'll see when Jesus comes back who was right... Jesus settles her debate. "I AM He." She is left to wonder about the whole thing and goes and tells the people.

When Jesus is revealed it settles all debate. She goes and tells people and they come. Eventually they tell her that they no longer believe because of her word but because they heard for themselves.
John 4
42 Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."
This is the crux of the deal. We have heard Him ourselves. This is the end all. When people finally overcome all their objections and hear the Word of God for themselves... they hear the voice of God speak in them while the read the Word or while they listen to a message. When they take the initiative to come and hear without being spoon fed by others. Then the Word of God starts to become real to them and they believe. THIS is the point that real change begins to happen for people.

Unfortunately there is no formula. There is no recipe that says after X amount of times and after saying XY amount of scriptures they'll believe. People respond as they respond. The important thing is to respond to them with the same things Jesus used. What did Jesus use in his conversation with the woman?

Jesus used:

  • The message of the Gospel - Living Water
  • The Gifts of the Spirit - 1 Corinthians 12 a Word of Knowledge
  • He revealed that He was the Anointed One - So must we reveal that He is the Anointed One.
  • He ministered to the people. He gave them words and actions. 
Jesus obviously didn't just pick this at Random. He was praying that morning as He always does, and then listen for God to speak up inside Him and tell him what to say the whole time. We can't use formulas, but we can understand principles and then walk these out through prayer in our dealings with people.

Embracing Grief - The process God gave you to heal

The following was a question from a Widow/Widower support group I belong to:

What is the most important thing you've learned about grief?
My Answer:

Grief is a process to be embraced and walked through. 
Your physical brain has developed protein structures (memories and muscle memories) that tell your body to react in a certain way.

These structures tell the leg to move when walking and they tell the body and mind to be a certain way at home with your spouse, certain expected norms.

Just as when a Vet loses a limb, a widow(er) loses something much more profound, their other half.

The new treatment for those who lose limbs is to activate the new nerve endings by rubbing them frequently with various materials (hard, soft, scratchy, smooth, hot, cold) so the brain can learn the new nerve endings. This helps alleviate "Phantom Limb Syndrome".

God gave us Widows(ers) the gift of Grief to help us recognize and process these protein structures in the brain as they relate to our …

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
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

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…

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…
