#SWBC 2014 - Convention Notes

I didn't make it to the #SWBC2014 all week...

...but my wife made all the day sessions. Finally, today was July 4th 2014, a corporate/national holiday. I had the day off. So we got up... late... and went to the first session Kenneth Copeland preached Session 1&2, Jerry Savelle took Session 3 and Jesse Duplantis took session 4. The following are my scattered notes from the meetings today.

Kenneth Copeland:

Ephesians 4
7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift. 8 Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men." 9 (Now this, "He ascended"--what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ-- 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
Matthew 10
40 "He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. 41 He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. 42 And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward."

You have a body. However, when you got born again you died. 


Don't call the tabernacle you live in "My Body". With heathens, doctors, people who won't understand, don't confuse them, just say what they'll understand. But when you are by yourself, or under your breath when they leave, or with your saved spouse, call your body something more scriptural.

  • This isn't my body, it's my living sacrifice (Romans 12). 
  • This isn't my body, it's a member of the Body of Christ (Body of The Anointed One in His Anointing.)
  • This isn't my body, my body died with on the cross, and this body is the risen body of Jesus! It belongs to Him! (Romans 6:8 and Colossians 2:20)


The Work Of The Five - Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. 


The five fold gifts of God to the Church are NOT "ministers". This is a misnomer to talk about people who preach the Word of God from a pulpit "ministers". These positions/titles are gifts TO the body of Christ FOR the work of ministry. Believers do ministry. Now as individuals, the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher all do ministry, but this is no different that any believer. All born again people do the work of ministry. So what's the long term goal for believers? They are given to bring these results:

  • Equipping of the believers for the work of the ministry
  • Edifying of the believers. 
  • Unity of the Faith
  • Knowledge of the Son of God.
  • Mature Man
  • Measure of the stature of the fullness of The Anointing of the Anointed One. 
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ

Unity Of Faith


Notice that the end goal is that the whole body of believers will be brought into the unity of the Faith. This does not say that the unity of the doctrine.

This says:

  • The unity of the Faith.
  • The unity of the knowledge of Jesus.
  • Unto Maturity
  • Unto the measure of the stature of the FULLNESS of the Anointed of the Anointed One! 


Speaking the truth in love = growing up


15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ-- 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

  • Speaking the Truth in Love caused growth. 
  • The body of the Anointed One is knit together 
  • Every part actively doing it's share is how the body is built up in love. 


Be @X!


If your grace is @X: You provision, prosperity, correction, protection is all @X. If you made your own choices and ended up @Y... You are out of place. The devil will bring the same attacks to you no matter which place you are in because he has no new tricks, he's a dead devil. However, your experience of the attack and the end result will be drastically different if you are in your rightful place.


How do you make inroad back into the perfect Will of God?


  • Word First Place. 
  • Keep the commandment of Love. 
  • 1 - What is THE plan sir? 
  • 2 - Your Body: treat your body as a ministry instrument. It doesn't belong to you. Keep it fed, tuned, dressed, etc. Ask Him (the Real Owner) how you ought to treat the body He has lent to you. 

Jerry Savelle


Grace: God's overwhelming desire to treat you like sin never happened! 
Favor produces opportunities for The Blessing to operate. 



  • Grace = Favor
  • Glory of God = God's manifested presence, power, and goodness. 
  • It's hard for God to say no! 

Hebrews 4:16


Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy,and find grace to help in time of need.

Qualify for manifested God. 



  1. Peace with God
  2. Right standing with God
  3. Access to Favor


Psalms 84:11

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.
Ephesians 3:2
2 if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you,

Question: If my prosperity makes God happy... what should my response be?

Answer: I'll make sure God is as happy as I can make Him! Bless me Father!

  • James 1:8 NKJV
    • ...he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
  • James 4:8 NKJV
    • Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded

Consider this wording:
A double minded man can EXPECT to receive nothing from God! 
Put a guard over your vocabulary.

As of 3:07 pm CT... I make the decision that if the bible says I can have it, I have it!


Jesse Duplantis

Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

God thinks about me!

Peace: Possession of adequate resources. 
Note to self:

  • Forget The Past - It cannot be recovered.
  • Delegate The Future - It belongs to God. 
  • Faith Presides Over The Present - Only the present belongs to you. 
God's thoughts are not memories. God'd thoughts about you are only future tense: they are hopes of the future. Even when God disciplines his children His intention is to bless us! 

His thoughts of Peace (possession of adequate resources) may be hindered by your conduct. God's thoughts are preludes to His actions.




How about you? You see anything to add to this? Want to share what examples you have seen or experience in yourself or others? Comment below. 

I call you empowered 2 prosper with good success!

It's a new season...

I just read a Facebook post from a friend/close acquaintance I know who was just laid off from a place I wanted to work at one time. It reminded me of my current season here...

I came to North Idaho with plans.... and they haven't worked out the way I intended. I'm not living where I thought I'd live, working where I thought I'd work, or doing the things I thought I'd be doing.

This season feels like a microcosm of my life... I'm not where I thought I'd be by now. I'm having trouble coming up with the motivation to do the things I maybe ought to be doing.

*Shhhh... Do you feel that? That wind gently blowing through the trees, down the hills, brushing your shoulders...

It's a new season! It's a fresh anointing.... it's coming your way.

The past doesn't matter. Not ten years ago, ten months ago, or ten minutes ago. God is always ready, ever ready, to do a new thing. He does best with participating people.

If you are feeling like I am, it…

*White Noise - Distortion - Grounded Cafe - Re-Write #3

***
Grounded Cafe
Through the window of the Grounded Cafe, Ash noticed two men dressed in all black duck behind a blue minivan. Ice ran down his spine. His right arm shot to the Glock 9mm at his side. Sucking a breath he took a second look—  They were gone. Black mist poured out from under the minivan and evaporated into the early morning air.

He shook his head, closed his eyes. Counting to ten, silently, Ash released the grip on his sidearm, which he now realized was a tape measure and not a Glock. Ash hadn’t had a right to carry a weapon since he left the service. He let his arm fall to his side. Reality settled back onto his shoulders.

A college age girl walked by just outside the window, head buried in her smartphone. She bumped into Chester, the town’s crazy old homeless man who was headed the other direction. She didn’t even notice. He gave her a dirty looked and kept walking the other way. She sat down at a table just outs…

Simply Grateful: It's more blessed to give than receive... So be humble and let someone give to you.

Receiving gifts is hard for me... 
Yesterday was orientation and today was my first day at a new job location. They prepared a gift bag full of fun treats and a hand-made card:


I mentioned Pokemon during the interview and they took note of it. Remembered it. Then used it to personalize my card.

Amazing! Stellar Service! Totally blown away.

Inside, though, part of me also took it for granted. Anytime I'm the center of attention I run from it as fast as I can. So I left shortly after and went back to my office to train on the computer.

The whole way back to the desk there was this inner voice saying:

"Aww... that's just what companies do for new hires... you're not that special. Don't let it get to your head..."

News Flash, ladies and gentlemen, that is false humility. It's actually serving to lessen the gift by a refusal to be simply grateful.

I can give and give and give and expect nothing in return, that's second nature to me; however, I have a hard t…

*These are my notes from church today using the YouVersion live app:

II Corinthians 4:5-16 NKJV For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus …

Change: It's harder than you thought and better than you imagined

I'm at the tail end of an end and the head of a beginning.

After 7 years in Nort Texas (Fort Worth), we moved. We spent the last few months getting the house ready to sell, selling the house, and moving. A week (03/19 - 03/24) was spent on the road and since then we lived in a hotel until we could find a place to live.

On Friday (03/31/17), we moved into our new house (rental). We're still unpacking, building storage shelves, figuring out to live with a basement for washer/dryer (odd).

We just found a store (EntertainmentMart) that sells games, Pokemon cards, and more. They allow the kids and adults to come play against each other live every Monday and Wed. So the kids are now adjusting.

There are things I already really enjoy about North Idaho... some of the transitions were easier than others.

Some things didn't go the way I wanted and some things went better. I just needed to learn to flow, slow down, breath, and listen... it's always about listening to the Holy Sp…

Credit Building Myths

So, I'm hearing a lot of people say things that are just not true, don't make sense, or are just plain bad advice, when it comes to building credit.

Credit building is not rocket science. 
It's true that the math formulas behind the scores are actually akin to rocket science math... But some of the basic things the average person needs to know are actually quite simple.

If you want to build credit without paying interest or creating debt read on, or just skip to the bottom to the conclusion. 
I'm sure you've seen this funny commercial:




I wrote a post previously about FICO and Lending Decisions, to tell you how the banks makes the decision to approve or decline your application.

Now I want to bring in the focus a little to some Credit Building basics. The score isn't the only factor used in lending decision, but it's a big one.

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, …
