John 11: Moved By The Holy Spirit

COME:

John 11
33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the people who had come with her weeping, he was intensely moved in spirit and greatly distressed. 34 He asked, “Where have you laid him?” They replied, “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus wept. 36 Thus the people who had come to mourn said, “Look how much he loved him!” 37 But some of them said, “This is the man who caused the blind man to see! Couldn't he have done something to keep Lazarus from dying?” 38 Jesus, intensely moved again, came to the tomb. (Now it was a cave, and a stone was placed across it.) 39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.
KVJ Onterlinear
33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping , and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled 
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave *. It was a cave, and stone lay upon it.

HEAR:


This word "Groan" has always struck me as odd. It's mentioned twice here. What's very interesting is what it means and where else it's used.
Groan - Embrimaomai
It derives from Brimaomai: "To snort with anger" and it means to charge with earnest admonition, sternly to charge, or threaten to enjoin. 
Blue Letter Bible Lexicon says that it appears in these five verses in the NT:

Mat 9:30and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, "See that no one knows about this."
Mar 1:43Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning:
Mar 14:5It could have been sold for more than a year's wages and the money given to the poor." And they rebuked her harshly.
Jhn 11:33When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.
Jhn 11:38Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance.
I've always had the idea that it just meant Jesus was moved with compassion and sad because His friends were sad. Indeed, that could be true because the bible says that he is our High Priest and he is understanding of our weaknesses, having experienced these intense emotions himself while on earth.

While all of that may be true it's not what the word means. It's the same word used to describe Judas' outburst over this same Mary pouring expensive oil over Jesus. Interesting that this word's use now again involved Mary.

So, Jesus is "mad", so to speak. I read where it's used and what it means and I get the picture of a Parent turning to children who are getting out of line and saying "Stop it!"

But verse 33 also says his spirit was "Troubled" this is the Greek word Tarasso. It means to: "Agitate, cause inward commotion, or to stir up" It's generally used to talk about the person who is agitated by fear and dread. Of course it's impossible for Jesus to be afraid. Perfected Love casts out fear and Jesus IS perfect Love himself.

I feel that this agitation was of the Holy Spirit. He already knew before He ever came that He would be raising Lazarus from the dead. He basically told Martha that when He first Got there. Martha figured Jesus was talking about a far off someday, not here and now.

Jesus also knew that His own time was short, and He would eventually be trading places with Lazarus. Very soon HE would be dying and getting wrapped and put into a tomb and then have to come out of it. This has to be on His mind as He was dealing this hear and now.

I feel that Jesus was moved by all of these things. This agitation of Spirit that caused a stern response was the Holy Spirit in Him moving Him to action. You don't just walk up nonchalantly to a tomb and ask politely: "Please come back from the dead?"

It was the Holy Spirit Himself moving to action within Jesus. This was the Gifts of the Spirit, as laid out in 1 Cor 12, coming to life before our eyes.

I feel like there is a conclusion to this... but I don't know what it is. So I'll let you make it for yourself...

DO:

As for me? I'm going to pay more attention to the leading of the Holy Spirit today in the little things. That way I can be used by Him in the big things.

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…
