Convention Notes: #SWBC2014 Kenneth Copeland 07/05/14


These are my random notes from tonights final service at #SWBC2014.

1 John 5: Love Command
Mark 4:14: Satan comes to steal the Word. 
John 10:10 The Thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy (In that order!) 

If Satan can't steal the Word out of you, then he can't kill or destroy you either. The Word of God is first place and final authority and the ONLY priority you will ever have.

Despise: Does NOT mean to hate.
Despise: Means to think little of, or pay little attention to. 

If you are not getting up early enough to be in the Word before you eat, get ready, leave for the day... then you are despising the Word of God. 

Failure to love is a failure of the Word working in you.

If you have ever gone on a juice fast you'll know your body goes through astonishing changes fairly quickly. This is because of the simultaneous reduction in toxins going in, and increase of micro-nutrients going in.

A believers convention (or any concentrated time in the Word) is like a juice fast for the Spirit!

Mark 4: Persecution comes for the Word's sake. That Word is what Satan is after. If he can't stop it from sprouting he'll attempt to stop it from producing.

Like the grape plant I have out back. Lot's of big leaves, and the meager-est fruit I've ever seen. It's not fit to feed the dog with.

Hot Buttons:

Satan knows your buttons. He doesn't pull new tricks. He just keeps pushing the same buttons that have always worked on you. Until... you begin to choose different reactions, he'll keep pushing the same ones.

If discussions about not having enough for bills, or something broken needs to be replaced, can get you depressed instantly... then he'll keep finding new ways to push those "money worry" buttons.

In fact, money worry is a sign that you are already serving the wrong Master (Matthew 6-7).

In 2 Cor 12, Pauls thorn was a messenger of Satan. In the bible, thorns always equal worries. 
(Study that out)

The deceitfulness of riches, is the lie that money will solve your problem. If you have caught yourself saying that getting a hold of more money would be the solution to you situation, you are believing a lie. Just for example, if you need a car, God can bring you a car without giving you the money for one!


Once you figure out how to roll the care over onto God this should become your new favorite saying:

I can't tell you how much I DON'T CARE! Jesus is MY caretaker! 

Heb 13:12-15 - The Fruit of my lips = Thanksgiving

Gratefulness is the key that is missing for many people.

!!!!!*****Heavenly Mathematics*****!!!!!!


Heavens Mathematics are not based on numbers, they are based on obedience. The Lord said to Kenneth one time, "I have a million ways to make you a billionaire! ... And you can't think of three!"

You don't always need money to buy a car, God can bring you a car without money.


Thoughts about my future: The Plan

  • Be led to give
  • Be led to receive
  • Be totally unconcerned with how things will come, or where they'll come from. 

Grace - Forgiveness 


The first act of Grace it Forgiveness.
The first act of Forgiveness is Grace.


Matthew 6:24-34: Take No Thought Saying


You take thoughts by saying them. You possess things with your mind and mouth. You take pain by acknowledging it, either with words or sounds. Pain is VERY real. It's not just imaginary. However, the same functions of your brain that are used for higher thought, are used for processing pain. This is why when you are "put to sleep" you cannot feel pain, even though it is still happening. This is why some people who pass their pain threshold pass out. This is also why pain makes it hard to concentrate on much else.

You can use this same physiological make up in reverse. Instead of saying "Ow! Oh this hurts... oh this hurts..." (Taking pain by saying)

You can replace those thoughts/words with His Word. "OH! Thank you Jesus for healing!" Pull out some healing scriptures and start to say those out loud instead.

But if you wait until you stub your toe to start this it's not going to work real well for you. Go get yourself an aspirin while you work on it.

Think about the pill bottle. Someone you trust told you that pill would reduce or eliminate your pain. You believed them. You acted on it, and experienced some positive results. Then you've been convinced over many repeated uses over 20-30+ years that it works. You've developed faith in that pill to take your pain.

Switching to the Word while you are in pain is hard. You may want to go take that pill, but take it in Faith, then start meditating the Word of God. Only after you have spent time meditating the Word will you have had the chance to build up your Faith in that Word as strong, or stronger, than you had in that pill. You can come to the point where the pill doesn't cross your mind, the Word is the first place you go when pain attacks. But that will take time to develop.... and develop it you must if you are going to be successful in God's Kingdom.


Practice His Presence. 


You can't wait until you have the stubbed toe to start this meditation on the Word. Therefore, you should start to practice God's presence everywhere you go, all the time. Ask him when you should get up, go to bed, ask Him about your routine in the day/week/month/year... Be LED through your day. Be LED in the morning. Be LED at work about each decision.

Start by saying: "I am your to command and correct sir! I am grateful for __Fill in as many things as you can here___."

If you are in pain, and you do this, you'll find that this replaces your pain in time.


The Works of Jesus



The Works of Jesus are whatever the Father tells Him to do.

If you only ever did/said what the Father told you to do/say this would create:
  • Decreased pressure to perform.
  • Increased pressure to be still and listen. 
Look up "Be" scriptures in the Word. Ex

  • Light BE
  • BE made whole
  • Amen (So BE it)
  • BE it done unto me as you have said


Instead of calling it your confession list, call it you "It Is Written" list. Take scriptures down that you can read with your eyes, confess with your mouth, and meditate on in your heart.

Don't ever violate a leading of the Lord. Even if you are wrong, it's better to be wrong trying to obey God than be dead ignoring Him. He can fix something you did trying to obey Him. It's getting the people ignoring Him to start listening that He has trouble with.

NEVER say "Yeah But..." to the Word of God. 


Proverbs says: Do not let the Word depart from your eyes.

You can't eat the memory of a potato. You have to put the Word in your eyes daily if you want a strong spirit.


Faith is developed as a seed is. It starts off needing a little extra care and protection. But eventually it will produce if allowed the right atmosphere.

Fear = Love violated

If you have a hard time believing God, fear is present, and so is clouded thinking as a result.

Perfected Love casts out fear.

Romans 4

Faith = Confidence

Meditation = Increased capacity for faith

Josh 1:8: Joshua was about to lead a group of people to become Giant killers! Meditation was the key to his success!

Psalms 127: Sleep scripture

Awake to righteousness! Is a good morning scripture.

Take JOY by Faith!

An Open Letter: John Stumpf, Wells Fargo Board, and Policy Making Departments

On 12/28/13, I wrote the following letter to the then CEO & President of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf. It was in part, a response to the LA Times Article and the poor response from Wells Fargo leadership.

I later worked for the executive office and saw how they handle these letters. They assign them to a paper-pusher who could care less. They draft a form response, and it gets tallied in the statistics.

By the time it makes it to the CEO, it's only data in a pie chart. "We had 365 complaints this month. x number of complaints about checking, y number about sales practices, Etc." They tally it up, if it's not a big enough stat, it gets zero attention. Most things that do require attention get just enough to make it go away, but never deal with the root.

I was one of many hundreds who spoke up loudly and actively for years before 2013 and years after. The news cycle of 2016 showed that it cost them $185 Million dollars to ignore the feedback their frontline Team Membe…

Topos Transitions

Transitions are rough. I've been through many seasons of my life where I had to make a transition. At each and every stage it was tough. There are always things you miss about the last season, things you are hoping for in the next season, and things you can't wait to be rid of in the season you're leaving behind.Whether you are sensing the winds of change blowing you out of your current situation, you are in the middle of the trip, or the winds are at your back and you settling in to your new spot... Remember this word: ToposTopos is a Greek word and it essentially means:Your strategic position of opportunity and influence.Make your Topos count today, wherever you are.Darrell




What doesn't kill you makes you stronger????

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.Ask a Vet with an amputated limb if they feel stronger now or before the limb was taken... I'd bet before. Injury, all injury, is by definition a lack of perfection. What doesn't kill you, more often than not,  makes you weaker, more timid, more cautious, slower... Not stronger.Sure, we can learn from the past, become more resilient. We can use pressure, under certain circumstances, to build resistance based strengths, like a body builder pushing back on the resistance of the weights... But by no means is the saying: "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger" an accurate portrayal of Truth, nor should it EVER be spoken to someone in pain.The enemy comes ONLY to steal, kill, and destroy, that's why the pain/attack came, not to make you stronger but to kill you.God's Grace brought you through but He didn't bring you to...God's Grace can heal you too.Selah#LiesAboutGod

White Nose | Scene 3

The Aleve took effect with the help of two breakfast whiskey sours. It had been three days since his tussle in town and he still couldn't sleep, despite the nighttime cocktail.
Beams of light broke through the trees outlining Ash's house, tucked back off of the main road by a mile long rock driveway. One such beam was tanning his pale country face as he rocked on an old wooden chair he'd carved himself. Whittling was one of his most relaxing and profitable talents.
One look in the mirror each summer reminded him that he only retained two colors, pale Irish freckle and redneck red. Ash was careful to avoid too much contact with summer's star.
Dust down the drive revealed the presence of a visitor before the sound of tires on gravel confirmed it. Ash hasn't been visited by more than three people in the eight years he'd been back in town, so he picked up the hunting rifle, just in case.
The scope showed the local sheriff, his friend Dan. He didn't usually com…

What is a Topos? A strategic position of opportunity and influence

What does Topos mean?Topos is a Greek word meaning: "Place, or Opportunity"
Properly:Any portion of space marked off, as it were, from surrounding, space Metaphorically: The condition or station held by one in any company or assemblyopportunity, power, occasion for actingA spot (general in space, but limited by occupancy; whereas chora is a large but participle locality). As used by me: Topos is a strategic position of opportunity and influence
Topos: Your Calling Everyone has a God given calling on this earth. There is something you were created and designed to do. What you are doing now may be "The Calling"; or, it may be the calling for this season of your life. Either way, you are either in your Topos, or you need to find it.

As you read the stories of biblical heros like Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah, Peter, and Paul... etc... you find that God put them in the right place to do the right thing at the right time.

They ended up in their Topos, …

Writers Block - How do you write when you don't know what to write?

So, I recently had a comment on this blog. I'm not sure if it's ligit but I think that it's a question a lot of writers ask:


"... I was curious to find out how you center yourself and cⅼear your tһoughts before writіng. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly dߋ take pleasurе in writing, however, it just seems like the fіrѕt 10 to 15 minutes is wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appгеciate іt!" AnonymousJuly 1, 2017 at 4:31 PM


The way this is phrase means that this is either a spam comment or it's just a google translate comment. Not sure. Nevertheless, it's a good question.

Having a mind that is clear isn't necessary for writing. Writing requires thoughts. My professor once said: "Throw up on the page, we can clean it up afterward". And that's done wonders for me. If you are going to write, just start. You could end up with something so long and winding that you…

II Corinthians 11:23-27 NKJV
Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my  own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness—

Freedom From vs Freedom ToBe

For many Freedom is understood through the lense if being free from...Addiction
Pain
Loneliness
Him/Her
The Situation
The Job
Debt
Poverty
Etc.So we follow the rat race seeking whatever we think will make us free. When that doesn't provide the freedom we sought, we seek another fix, and another... An endless cycle of seeking freedom but never being free.What if Freedom has nothing to do with whatever jail you are in, however you've defined your personal jail.What if Freedom is about becoming WHO you were always meant to be... And in that pursuit all the "other" (addiction, pain, the jails) falls off when you aren't even looking...You don't know when you got "free from", you just look back and realize you don't have all the issues you had. You have battles in front of you but you have definitely won some battles too, and you didn't​even notice you had won.It's as though the act of becoming a butterfly was so profound that you have trouble…

White Noise | Distortion | Scene Two | TBC

A few THC pills, more than necessary, stopped Ash's hands from shaking as he filled a short glass with ice and Jameson's. Topping it off with a sleeping pill, and the night was sure to embrace him soon.

The night air bit his nose as Ash stepped out onto the patio; he'd spent worse nights than this in the deserts. Ash zipped up the sub-zero sleeping bag and settled into the hammock. Night owls and bats were still out this time of year and they're combined symphony was the final step to his sleep concoction.

***

The mess hall wasn't as full this time of day. The food was dry by late afternoon but it was never very good anyway. Ash twirled spegettiini on his fork as two guys nearby chattered on about what they'd do when they get home.
Suddenly time slowed down. The roof caved in and a compression wave through him against the wall. He slid down the wall losing consciousness. 
When he came-to a few moments later there was total chaos. Other buildings were collapsing, m…

Become not do

From 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:As Emerson once put it, “What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.”It's one thing to put on a smile at work on a bad day because the customer doesn't need to know about that. You got a job to do. We've all had to do that and it's ok.It's another thing to lie to those closer to you, or worse yourself. Who you are produces what you do. If those two are not aligned it creates cognitive dissonance, spiritual tremors, anxiety breakdowns.The solution isn't to stop doing good or well... though that's exactly what you'll be tempted to do to some the cognitive dissonance.The solution it's to become who you were created to be. As you become, your doing gets better as a byproduct.#ScratchTheNewLimb

Hi! My name is Darrell G. Wolfe. I am a wealth of random information and I make complicated things simple at DarrellWolfe.com.

I have a knack for absorbing information, breaking it down to its root elements, and teaching it to others.

Most importantly, I help purpose-driven people to understand their place in His-Story and provide them the tools they need to fulfill their unique position of opportunity and influence in this world (their Topos).
