Grace and Mercy (Fall and Redemption)

COME:

 Genesis 3
21Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.
22Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.


Genesis 4
13And Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is greater than I can bear! 14Surely You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground; I shall be hidden from Your face; I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth, and it will happen that anyone who finds me will kill me.”
15And the Lord said to him, “Therefore, whoever kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” And the Lord set a mark on Cain, lest anyone finding him should kill him.

Genesis 4
25And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, “For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.” 26And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Ē´nosh. Then men began to call on the name of the Lord.

HEAR:

In the midst of our sin, fallen state God is merciful. Despite the Sin of Adam God provides proper covering for them. He sheds the blood of a lamb and provides tunics for them. Their own attempts at covering were inadequate at best. Fig leaves. He then locks them out of the Garden and from the Tree of Life. This is also for their benefit. A seed of Ishshah is to be born that will be bitten by the Great Serpent but will crush his head. A redeemer is to come. If they were to eat of the Tree of Life too they would be locked into this fallen state forever, that truly would be Hell. The longer men lived the more their minds grew darker and more wicked.

From their first children we see Murder has begun. Keyin is driven to the wilderness after killing Hevel the Righteous. Again we see God's Mercy and Grace covering Keyin's murder with a protective covering.

We see God blessing Ish and Ishshah with a third son Shet. And Men began to call on the name of the Lord at that time. (by the way this means that all this took place over a LONG time and there were other sons and daughters of Ish and Keyin and Hevel before Shet came along. Populations were growing in the earth.)

Every time we fall, EVERY TIME, God's Mercy, Grace, Love is there to cover us and restore us, or at least protect us. Keyin would have had some restoration had he been repentant, I'm sure of it. Since he was not, God could only protect him instead. Even if you are running from God, God is still watching out for you and protecting you as best as you allow him too. That still small bad feeling about going to a certain place, or taking a certain route are God trying to protect you.

Despite anything we do, even murder, God is there wanting to restore, protect, and show great GRACE to us!


DO:

I'm going to show more Mercy and Grace to others today, given all that I've been given. Lord, show my how to be a conduit for your Grace and Mercy today.

Side Note 1:

Genesis 2 Man calls names his female counterpart: Woman (H0802 'Ishshah) Bone of my bones, flesh of my flesh. In their pre sin state she his counterpart. Literally Opposite of Man.


Genesis 3 After the fall man calls his female counterpart Eve Mother of all living (H02332 Chavvah) Literally Life/Living.

Side Note 2:

Genesis 1-5: Adam had Abel and Cain and after Cain killed Abel and was sent away he had Seth. However in Genesis 5 we see that Adam lived 130 years and had Seth and had other kids and died at 930 years old. So then it cannot be assumed in any genealogy in the bible that the first child mentioned is the first born child of the Parent, only that the child mentioned is the one chosen by God to be part of a special lineage or is worthy of mention for one reason or another.

Side Note 3:

The Hebrew Names of the First Offspring of Men:
Adam: Adam (man) came from Adamah (earth)
Gen 2 CJB Called himself Ish(man)
Eve: Ishah (Woman)  Chavvah (Live/Living/Woman)

1st Cain: Keyin
2nd Abel: Hevel, Killed by Keyin
3rd Seth: Shet

Fast Forward:
Enoch: Hanokh
Methuselah: Metushelach
Lamech: Lemekh
Noah: Noach
Sons of Noach Shem, Ham, and Japheth: Shem, Ham, Yefet

Fatalism: When bad things happen

Fatalism is not the answer!

I've had no less than four or five conversations around this general topic recently, so I decided to say something about it. Although I have several friends I want to say this to, the primary audience for this speech today is me. I spent all of yesterday in a fatalistic funk. Today, I'm choosing to make a new choice.

You are not living the life you live because of fate. Period. 

God. The Stars. Fate. They did not create the hardships you face today. There were some factors outside of you that contributed, often in major ways. But you ultimately choose how you will respond from today forward, not Fate.
Fatalism: a doctrine that events are fixed in advance so that human beings are powerless to change them. Websters Fatalism is exactly the opposite of Truth. God empowers you, he does not disempower you. If you believe you are the way you are, living the life you live, because of Fate, you are believing a LIE of Satan. That lie is keeping you bound inste…

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…

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…
