How To Get The Victory?


Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all(katergazomai), to stand,

 We are encourage to take the whole armor of God and having done all to stand, to stand therefore.

“Having done all” is the word “katergazomai.’

This word means to work everything out, leave no stone unturned and obtain the victory in everything.

It depicts us as warriors in a terrible struggle against the world, Satan, and sin.  The big ball of dull is kicked up as were engage in these gladiator struggles.  When the dust finally settles we remain standing victoriously, as Satan, sin and the world lay scattered at our feet.  The command is to carry out all things to a complete victory.

The reason why the church is so weak is because few understand and obey katergazomai.

Tim Ferriss and The Law of the Thinning Air


Tim Ferriss, the brilliant entrepreneur has formulated “The Law of the Thinning Air.”

  1. As one climbs a mountain, the air becomes thinner.
  2. Astronauts use oxygen tanks in space because the air so darn scarce.
  3. Most air molecules compete with each other at lower levels.
  4. At higher levels the competition gets limited.
  5. The same goes for everyday life.
  6. Competition is fierce at the mediocre levels.
  7. The world is a herd of mediocre cattle.
  8. Few strive for excellence.
  9. But if you do, you will find yourself in a stratosphere void of competition.
  10. It’s easy to become a billionaire because there is such scarcity of competition at such high levels.
  11. Be crazy good! Be crazy innovative! Be the expert at something!
  12. Figure out something to help the world than no one else does.
  13. Suddenly you find yourself alone and no one to challenge you.
  14. The whole world is opened to you.

The Pareto Principle


80 percent of output comes from 20 percent of input.

80 percent of results comes from 20 percent of the efforts.

80 percent of company profits comes from 20 percent of the product and customers

80 percent of the work is done by 20 percent of the people

80 percent of the people complain about the 20 percent of the people who are doing 80 percent of the work for them.

Which 20 of sources are causing 80 percent my problems and unhappiness?

What 20 percent of sources are resulting in 80 percent of desired outcomes and happiness?

Identify the advertisement that is generating 80 percent of my revenue!

My Three, Four,and Five Hundred Approach to Weight Loss


By the grace of God, I’ve almost lost 40 pounds.

My goal is 185 lbs.

I was at 230 lbs.

God convicted me to lose weight so it has not been hard.

I’ll make my secret simple.

Invest in a good digital scale. Something in the neighborhood of forty dollars.

You need to have an accurate ongoing record of your weight progress.

Then use the 300, 400, 500 rule.

300 calories for breakfast.

400 calories for lunch.

500 calories for dinner.

You many need a bit more calories than I do.

The experts would have me at 1400-1500 calories per day to lose, but I feel good with the 1200 or 1300 that I ingest.

Check it for out as per your height, age, gender, lifestyle activity level, and so forth.

One of the few blessings of “big government over regulation” is that everything now has the calories on it.

So add them up at every eating.

Eat from all food groups. Don’t leave out starches or sweets or vegetables or you will end up craving them and blowing it later.

Eat your three meals a day. Do not skip a meal.

Indulge yourself when someone invites you to their home but don’t overdo it.

If you blow it, get on the bandwagon the next day.

My saving grace is two heaping tablespoons of Betty Crocker frosting per day.

This is about 80 calories per clump.

If you are in a location where you cannot count calories then use my one cup, one half, one fourth approach.

Purchase a three dollar set of measuring cups from Walmart and carry them with you.

If its breakfast. I measure one heaping cup of dry cereal, pour it into a bowl and use Silk Soy Milk.

I also love good black coffee with out anything.

Then I use the Art Linkletter approach by which he lost 70 pounds. Eat everything but cut all portions by half.

All of your desserts squash them into the ¼ cup size before eating.

More than anything ask God to help you.

Blessings.

The Faith of Abraham


Romans 4:17  (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead (corpses), and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

This verse tells us that the nature of our God is to call forth the things, which are still not physically in existence as having the same reality and essence of things, which are in existence.

This is one of the facets of faith!

Abraham’s faith in God was so great, that out of corpse like circumstances, and out of things, which in reality dis not exist, God made Abraham into a father of many nations and millions of people.

This is called the faith of Abraham.

What Is The Great Catalyst?


Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and ACCESS with confidence by the faith of him.

Romans 5:2 By whom also we have ACCESS by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

CONFIDENCE in the voice of God is the great catalyst of energy which releases the gifts and the power of God.

It gives us the boldness to access the realities of God’s kingdom.

The amount of confidence that we have in obeying God, or giving a word, or praying for someone, is directly proportional to the access that we will have to the anointing, the power, the gifts or to the grace of God.

Confidence by faith gives us boldness with God and most important of all, ACCESS into the things of the kingdom of God.

“ACCESS” in the things of the kingdom of God is the right to obtain or use or take advantage of something (as services or membership).

Five minutes of prayer with absolute confidence in the voice of the Spirit does more than a month of praying in doubt!

Any incremental increase in our confidence will exponentially increase ACCESS into the things of the kingdom
