Word Studies in Matthew 25


Matthew 25:34-36



34 "Then the King will say to those on His right'Come, you who are blessed of MyFatherinherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

I want to examine a few words:

  1. Stranger
    1. Xenos: Without knowledge, new, unheard of... 
    2. This doesn't JUST mean a person who is outside of Christ, although it means that too, it would also mean someone who is a Christian, but doesn't know that they have a Covenant relationship with God, and they don't know how to operate inside of that covenant. 
  2. Invited
    1. Sunago: Literally-To Lead. This is the word we get "Synagogue" from. It means to lead into, gather, invite, be a good host. It is compared to the word Sullego which means to collect in order to carry off. At the final harvest of souls the angels will Sullego the tares (enemy) and Sunago the wheat (Believers).
    2. We are to lead with compassion into an inviting and hospitipal place all those who are without knowledge of Christ and/or their covenant in Him. 
  3. Naked
    1. Gumnos: without clothing, stripped, without an outer garment. One could be partially clothed but not fully clothed and still be Gumnos/Naked. 
    2. There are those who are naked spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. We are to help clothe them all. 
  4. Clothed
    1. Periballo: To throw around. As in a mote around a castle, shawl around shoulders, robe around a man. 
    2. This one who is stripped of their outer protection can be covered by ours. We could be using OUR Faith to put it to work on behalf of others who don't know how to use theirs. 
  5. Sick
    1. Astheneo: Literally to be without strength. Typcially this is physical weakness as opposed to other types of weakness. 
    2. This isn't just someone with the flu. This is elderly, orphans, widows, people with disabilities, and others who need help. I would posit further that this could also mean that someone who doesn't have the capacity for something. A mechanic helping someone who is not mechanically inclined. 
  6. Visited
    1. Episkeptomai: To look on, look after, look with the eyes. Could also be to look after as in to care for another for their benefit. 
    2. It is our job to "look after for the benefit of" those in our spehere of influence that are weak. 
      1. This isn't JUST coming over to have coffee and talk. This is what our youth group was doing when they went to elderly peoples homes and cut the grass and cleaned the gutters. 
      2. This is when KCM sent people to Sandy Vicitms LONG before any other Government institutions came to help, which as of 02/2013 they STILL haven't! 

Those are my thoughts from todays reading...What are yous? DW

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.
  • For a full list of all my book suggestions, see my Amazon Store.

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…

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…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Short Story: The Treasure Room

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
It's true, where you spend your money is an indication of what you value. This is why Tithe (money) is the number one indicator of whether you Trust God (heart issue).

What if we turned this verse around for a moment? What if we imagined that the treasure is your heart?

For where your heart is, there will be your deepest treasures.We then come to realize that the human heart is the real treasure. It's not our money or belongings that matter in life, but the hearts we touch along the way.

As I pondered that this morning, I imagined the following story. I hope you enjoy and take something away for yourself today.

*******

The sun poured into his bedroom window casting shadows around his room. The birds chirping in the tree just outside provided a bittersweet contrast to his otherwise solemn mood.

The house did not get many visitors, because Bob was a sheltered man. He lived far away, in the mountains. When he des…
