Tongues: Study References

If you are going to study Tongues you need to have a proper context. You must also make sure to throw out everything you think you know and take the words for what they say, not skim them and think you know what they say. Much has been misread by old religion. It is also very helpful to go back and study the Greek on much of the NT around this. English translations by religious scholars have totally messed up a variety of scriptures because they translated with their own biases. The following are the scripture verses I reference when I study this topic. I'll be adding to this if I find more, from time to time.

Verses on Tongues:

Saved and Spirit Filled are a seperate Issue:How does Jesus give the disciples the Holy Spirit in John 20:22 and then also tell them to wait for the Holy Spirit. Isn't that a bit double minded? Unless there are two things happening here. John 20:22 VS Acts 1:7-8When the Holy Spirit arrives on the scene it is noticable. The Apostles notice when He's N…

GRACE: Ability or All Sufficiency

GRACEEphesians 2:8 (New American Standard)...For by grace you have been saved through faith ; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God Romans 5:2 (New American Standard)...through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. 1 Timothy 1:14 (New American Standard)...and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus. As I ponder GRACE I am challenged to challenge my own understanding of the word. As I listen to Dr Jim Richards, read his book "Grace the power to change", and listen to others who teach on GRACE I begin to understand that there more to this word, just as I learned years ago now that there is more to the other words we use to throw around so freely. For example "The Blessing" means WAY more than most of us in Christianity ever knew! (See this video: The Blessing) and read this book (The Blessing by Kenneth …

Overdraft Protection is a scam!

Overdraft Protection is a scam...OK, so maybe it's not always a scam. There are people who could benefit from it. So let me explain. There are two different terminologies that mean TOTALLY different things that you should know about. Details vary from bank to bank but the essence of these are about the same at most banks. Allow me to explain.
Overdraft ProtectionOverdraft protection means that if your account becomes overdrawn for any reason the bank will pull money from another account to cover it. Typcially this comes from a linked savings account, credit card, or line of credit. There is most often a transfer fee associated. You typically pay a fee of $25-$40 per item (up to four per day) for overdrafts. So intead you have this protection and it pulls money from a linked account to cover you and charges a transfer fee of between $10-$20 per day (rather than per item). So instead of paying four $35 fees ($140) you pay one transfer fee of $15. Would you rather pay $15 or $140? Obv…

2013

2013 Word from The Lord through Kenneth Copeland Received August 17, 2012
2013 IS A YEAR OF GREAT GRACE.
Stay where you are. Stay steady. Why? Your greatest blessing ever is at hand. No one can stop My plan for you. It is a blessed plan. Stay in My Word. Stay strong in faith. Insist on walking in My commandment of love. No devil. No government. No man can curse what I have blessed. Believe that. Know that. You belong to Me--not the world. We will carry out the blessing plan together. I am teaching you grace. Keep it on your mind throughout 2013 and beyond. Never, ever let it go. The thing that I can do that is exceeding abundantly above all you can ask or think is to make all grace abound towards you. And that is what is happening for you and for your country right now. Be blessed. Enjoy My grace. It is yours.

Called of God to be a Lotto winner?

So the other day I talked to a man who was not planning to start a ministry or business by taking steps or making steps toward it. He was just "planning" to win the lotto so that he can go on missions trips and evangelize. But he's doing NOTHING toward that end until he wins the lotto. And he was serious about planning to win. He got mad when I laughed about the plan.

Amazing! A grown man, at retirement age “planning” on winning the lotto so that he can go on the missions field. Maybe, just maybe, God told him that would be His plan. Wealth transfer from the wicked to the righteous is in God’s M.O. But God isn’t about luck. If God called you to the missions field He has a billion ways to supply you and He doesn’t want you waiting on the lotto. What are you going over to teach people? Just trust God and win the lotto or trust God and HE will provide for you?

Now, I believe God will take money away from the World and use them to fund you. He may tell you to go buy a lotto t…

Facebook Page Username and About Section

Here are few tips regarding official/public Facebook pages.


Set a proper username once you are able. Set a proper description. 
Both of these functions are on the "Update Info" panel. Under the Admin Panel, which is at the top of your page if you are signed in as you and viewing the public page. Look for "Update Info" under the "Edit Page" section.


UsernameThen You will find the third option down is "Username". Once you choose it you either won't be able to chang it, or you'll have to pay a fee to do so, so choose wisely. Remember that the username will come after Facebook.com like this "Facebook.com/Username" So choose something that is simple to say and write and will fit easily on a business card. See mine for example: Facebook.com/n2goodsuccess

About SectionAnother factor to look at is the description section of your page. You can set this also on the "Update Info" page and look for the "Short Description"…

Where are the jobs?

When I came across this I had to take a moment to think about it. On one hand it makes perfect sense. On another hand it's hard to believe this many people could ever be put out of work by Robots. The fact is that jobs are disapearing and being replaced by new jobs. But the jobs of the future are high tech and high skill. Not nessasarily high "education". The old days of going to get a bachelors or even masters or PhD and being gaurunteed a job are gone. In todays marketplace a job could just as easily go to a young kid right out of highschool who spent his freetime learning computers and technology instead of playing games or "hanging out" with friends all the time.

Moving Up, Lessons in Leadership

As I've pondered success and growing into new levels of success I am reminded of an interview I had recently with a former supervisor. Since we last really sat down to chat we've both had promotions. He shared something that had never occured to me regarding leadership. It takes new skills at each level. These are the levels in my field, but the principles will carry over into other fields.


The front line employee is taking calls and is responsible only to himself, for the most part. The front line Lead position is still right there in the mix and has a lot of influence, taking escalated issues and irate customers, but this person has influence over each of his direct reports in a very real and immediate way. The front line Supervisor is a salary position. It's full of meetings and reports. Due to the nature of this position the person has a lead or two under them along with 15-30 front line staff. This person would like to be there in the middle of it all, sharing their ex…
