Face Book Shortcuts

  1. “Progress without planning is what we call evolution. Making small changes that exist may lead to a local maximum but only creating something brand new will allow you to find the global maximum.” Peter Thiel “Zero to One”
  2. Evolution without intelligent design is impossible. Evolution suggests haphazard incremental changes over centuries that are subject to luck, chance, and mutation. We can’t have a world created by God but dominated by evolution. To leave God out of any evolutionary process is sheer stupidity. To say that everything is here by evolution void of God requires a faith that I don’t have. God is the creator and designer par excellence. Now, that God has used some evolution within His creative mind is a possibility if not a probability.
  3. The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say “no” to almost everything.― Warren Buffett
  4. “I always knew I was going to be rich. I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute. ” Warren Buffet
  5. “I insist on a lot of time being spent, almost every day, to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business. I do it because I like this kind of life.” Warren Buffet
  6. 1 Cor 9:26 Therefore I run thus: not as without a goal, thus I box: not as one beating the air.
  7. “You can create the future into something definite. Indefinite attitudes about the future show why there is so much dysfunction in our world today.” Peter Thiel “Zero to One”.
  8. Peter says investors are sitting on tons of money because they don’t see a future of innovation to invest into.
  9. Politicians will continue to squabble because none of them want to create a future with solutions. The few who want to create a political future with solutions are shunned. An unsolvable future keeps their money coming in.
  10. I call on the Holy Spirit to guide me. What Peter says is huge. I have lived without asking God to let me see my future in concrete ways which allow for design and creation. The future has been something hazy. I’ve made myself a victim of the future instead of its creator and designer with the Holy Spirit. Paul calls this, “Knowing the hope of your calling.”
  11. “If you’re not doing some things that are crazy, then you’re doing the wrong things.” Larry Page shared this recently when describing why moonshots matter.
  12. 2015 will be the year of “superior giving.’ The future belongs to those who use their finances with wisdom but with liberality. The Bible tells us that God loves the cheerful, which in the Greek is the hilarious giver.” Listen to what Bill Johnson says. “The tithe is the kindergarten of the kingdom lifestyle economically. It’s not a goal. It’s a beginning place.”
  13. The mistake that we have made as Christian leaders is that we have not challenged people sufficiently. We thought that we could get them to church by entertaining them, giving them doughnuts, feeding them Gerber Baby Food messages and stifling the move of the Spirit. People want to aim high, they want something to sacrifice and commit to, something that will blow their minds and a cause to live and die for. 2015 must be a year of change for the church, lest we continue to produce weak Christians and will stand accountable before God.
  14. You would think that God gives to the one who does not have, but He ends up giving to the one who has. Of course God gives to the one who doesn’t have, but it all starts with having faith and having in our spirits, then the manifestation occurs. The poverty mind set, the one who does not have in his heart, will stay in poverty. The more you can receive in your heart, the more will be manifested.
  15. The social media revolution has created a hybrid socialism/ free market enterprise animal. Information redistribution which can create personal wealth has occurred along all socio economic groups. Yet for those who work the smartest and many times the hardest, they will be the ones who make it. Socialists can no longer whine and greedy corporations don’t have to be the ones to succeed.
  16. “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” Warren Buffet. Be crazy good in what you give to your customer.
  17. Have your eyes opened to people whom God is spotlighting. Usually they are potential leaders. Many are diamonds in the rough. Some are in the church, some are not. Grab them and pour yourself into them.
  18. The greatest anointing is present when most have left the church and the few hungry ones remain.
  19. The problem is that we are raising up the next generation to replicate what we have been doing that does not work. What can I do differently?
  20. How do I know that Jesus is real? Experience! If you only believe about Him you will never be sure. You need to experience Him for yourself. Faith in Jesus Christ is the sum of three variables. Mental faith, physical encounter and life time experience. Until you have these three, your belief in Jesus Christ is not complete. If you lack in one or more of these simply ask God to supply them. We make ascertaining the reality of God too complicated, because deep down we are scared of being proven wrong and that He is all that He claimed to be.
  21. It’s not about begging God to do something. When you get to the spiritual place or learn what God wants you to, He will open the door.
  22. How Do You Become Good at Knowing the Voice of God? It’s better to take chances at what you think is the voice of God, miss and learn from them, than sit in fear, and not take your chance, and become old, your butt still glued to the chair. If you would become really good at knowing when and what God speaks to you, you must take that a million risks and do what you think that still small voice is telling you.
  23. Don’t wait for God to speak to you a whole bunch of stuff before you lunge out to obey Him, because He probably won’t. Learn to get out of your chair and do what He tells you on the first word or hunch that you think He tells you.
  24. What Is Your 10 X Thinking Idea? Mine is; “What Can Christ do through me to revolutionize the global church even when I’m dead?”
  25. Steve Jobs introduced the I Pad. Elon Musk wants to take people to Mars and Tesla Motors. Richard Branson is into commercial space travel. All these men have vision to impact the globe. What about you?
  26. 2015 is the year of kingdom entrepreneurs. This is the most important word that God is speaking to the church. Apart from innovations in the tech world, the only other entity who is innovating is the government and much of what it innovates goes against what people want. The church is not innovating, yet it has the greatest innovator of all times, Christ Jesus.
  27. The loss of the fear of man is the playground for great men and women of God. The loss of all fleshly reputation is the access to function in the glory of God.
  28. America is full of people who say we need to do this and that but where the ones who will go and do what is needed?
  29. If someone is giving you stale bread give it to the ducks, they eat anything. Jade Galasso
  30. Political correctness is proof that stupidity is contagious. Bill Johnson
  31. This morning I sought God in desperation. “Jesus why do I still feel so much opposing me? Is it a demon? “Then I saw Jose sitting squarely in front of me. God said, you still have part of Jose in a neat little picture. He is the one opposing you. It can only be Christ in you. My greatest enemy is the smallest vestige of the Jose who no longer is. Whom am I, who is the new self, in the superhuman race whom Christ has created in me, is my life’s Great Discovery, my quest.
  32. To repeal a bad law you must implement it to the fullest and let the chips fall where they may. I also call it “letting people sow their wild oats until the oats cause them to hit rock bottom.”
  33. A Christian is a pickle. A cucumber is pickled when baptized in vinegar. A Christian is pickled to Christ’s image when baptized in the Spirit.
  34. You must do all possible to constantly express and get the Christ out of you and into the world.
