The Glow Test: How I can know if I'm spending enough time with Jesus, without being religious.


It's not often that I make a whole post based on the message from Church. But today's message was timely for me, as I hope it will be for you too! If you want to see the message, (click here) for Sunday 08/02/15, GatewayPeople.Com.


Why are we here? 


My Calling... What is the calling of all believers? 


We are called saints. 1 Corinthians 1:2. Luke 9 and Mark 3 show us that we are called to be with Him; then as a result, we can go.

What are we called to go do?

People are triune beings. We are Spirit, Soul and Body. Jesus came to help people. Therefore, He helped them Spirit, Soul, and Body. So should we. When he sent his disciples (of which you and I are now) he gave them a three prong mission:
  1. Preach the Kingdom
    1. Spirit - We are born again spiritually first. We are translated from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of Light. 
  2. Heal the sick
    1. Body - Healing rebukes the attack of the devil, and just the effects of this fallen world, in our bodies. 
  3. Cast out demons
    1. Soul - The soul is Mind, Will, and Emotions. These are the areas that the devils spend their most energy attacking us. They confuse our minds, drain and stress our emotions,  and bring our will into captivity, causing us to do things we don't want to do. 
    2. We cast out the power of devils, and free the Mind, Will, and Emotions to do the will of God. 

There are three areas we can focus on, to gain the life God planned for us.

1. Knowing

An extension chord can be plugged in to many devices, but if the source end is not plugged into the wall, the devices will not work. In the same way, if the chord is plugged into the source, the same power will flow into all of the devices. There is no power in the chord, unless the chord is plugged into the source of the power.

If you are lacking power in your life today... this is where you need to start. This doesn't mean just going to church, opening the bible for "study", or praying memorized prayers for 30 minutes a day. All of these are fine if they help you. But this is about knowing HIM. Getting into his presence, in a more real and intimate way than you would your own spouse.

If you aren't being intimate with Jesus... you are missing the primary part of the Christian LIFE.

2. Growing


The vine (Jesus) is plugged into the root (God the Father), with power (HolySpirit) running through him. We are the branches (Church) on the vine (Jesus). We will bear fruit if, and only if, we remain attached to the vine.

We all ought to be growing in grace, and bearing fruit. If I can't point to the fruit in my life as evidence of my walk with Jesus... I'm in trouble. We ought to desire the Word of God, as babies desire milk. Constantly, and unashamedly.


3. Glowing


As a glow-in-the-dark toy only works after being exposed to light, and the moon only lights as it reflects the sun... so we too ought to be glowing with the presence of God. Moses, when he came down the mountain, was glowing so much that he hid his face from the crowd.

A woman is intimate with her husband, and life is conceived inside of her. Very often, it shows on her face without anyone saying anything about it. She is glowing.

So we too, will glow after having LIFE conceived in us when we spend time with Jesus, our husband.

I haven't felt like I was glowing in a long time. This is a direct red flag. It means I've been away from the light long enough, for my glow to wear off.

This is going to be, hereafter, called my Glow Test. If I'm not glowing, my fruit is dry, because I haven't spent time with Him. Not with religion, or rituals... with Him.

That was my take away today.

Your Turn:

Hey... how do you know when you have lost your glow?

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

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…

A Memorial Message of Hope

My wife, Flavia Antoinette Wolfe, passed into Glory on 06/25/2018. This is the message/word God gave me.Dealing with Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, we often compelled to ask questions and express doubts:
• Why?
• What if… a thousand what-ifs…
• If only…
• I should have/shouldn't have
• Can God really be good?
• Can the Bible really be true?

The answer to why is simple, hard, and totally unsatisfying: This World Is Broken. 

Sin entered the world, and through sin, death. BUT, God. So many powerful stories have a "but God" moment. Jesus came, he conquered death, and through him, our sorrow is lessened, and a drop of joy lies underneath.

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 New King James Version (NKJV)

You WILL have tribulation. That's just as much a promise as anything else in the bible. Trouble is here on this planet for all of us because of…
