Prostitutes and other Godly people ...


""Jesus Saves" in Neon" by Taber Andrew Bain
Jesus Saves in Neon by Taber Andrew Bain

God Uses Strange Circumstances... 

Two men are spying out a city. The first city their band of warriors - misfits will attack. They are looking to see what weak spots there are and how to best engage the enemy. They are on reconnaissance and intel gathering.

So they visit a prostitute on the way out of the city. She hides them on her roof, misleads the guards. Then she lets them down through her window with a red rope, with the promise that when the attack comes, she and her household will be safe. Joshua 2

Rahab, a prostitute,  and her family only survivors of City Wide Devastation... 

 Joshua 6:22-25
22 But Joshua had said to the two men who had spied out the country, "Go into the harlot's house, and from there bring out the woman and all that she has, as you swore to her." 23 And the young men who had been spies went in and brought out Rahab, her father, her mother, her brothers, and all that she had. So they brought out all her relatives and left them outside the camp of Israel. 24 But they burned the city and all that was in it with fire. Only the silver and gold, and the vessels of bronze and iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the Lord. 25 And Joshua spared Rahab the harlot, her father's household, and all that she had. So she dwells in Israel to this day, because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.
Hebrews 11:31 NKJV 
By faith the harlot Rahab did not perish with those who did not believe, when she had received the spies with peace.

James 2:25 NKJV 
Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

Rahab the Prostitute is an interesting choice to be used of God. This woman become one of just a few to be allowed to live among the children of Israel. She even marries a Jew named Boaz. In fact, she becomes one of the few gentiles to be in the line and lineage, of Jesus himself! (Matthew 1:5)

***Correction! I decided to leave the original here but correct it also. A reader pointed out my error. It's always good to be aware of your errors. The truth is even more exciting. Rahab was not Boaz' wife. Rahab was Boaz' MOM. Rahab married an Israelite and gave birth to Boaz who would then in turn marry another non-Israelite woman named Ruth, who ends up with an entire book in the Old Testament. Rahab ended up with quite a legacy.***

What an odd choice. Kind of makes the religious community cringe to think about.

Mark Cahill frequently goes to the places religious crowds run from. Being led by the Spirit of God, he will go into bars and other places to rescue people from hell itself. Everywhere he goes he brings the light of God's love with him. More prostitutes, and other people religion shuns, have been saved and brought to Jesus by this man than any other I know, except maybe Kenneth Copeland or Jesse Duplantis.

Is there anything we can learn about God's heart for anyone that will listen?

Is there anything that Rahab did we can learn from?

I'll let you decide. But here are some random thoughts about this.

Random Thoughts About Rahab...

She used a red rope. This symbolizes the blood of Jesus. She rely's on that symbol outside her door (just like the passover blood on the doors of the Israelites forty years earlier), to save her from pending doom.

She reached for her answer. When God led those men across her path, she seized the moment. She could have been afraid of her people and turned them in. Instead she took a chance, and she and her household were the only ones left.

God chose a woman with less than perfect history to be saved, because of her willingness to believe, and obey.

What do you think? 

Anything you can learn from a born again prostitute? Are you too good to reach out to those who are lost? Hurting?

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 …

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…

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…
