How to save the world.

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:6 NIV

Change your private world. Then God can use you to change the public world. It starts with the choice to take back your time.

Constant cheap fun takes up so much of our time in America. How much of your free time is stolen by TV, video games, movies, the internet, or just self-entertainment in general.

What would happen if you used your free-time to move towards God?

What if you sat in silence and waited on the voice of God instead of talking to your friend about the latest whatever?

What if you spent an hour worshiping in God’s presence before you went to bed, instead of playing Guitar Hero?

What if you decided to fight (pray and prophesy) for that person in your class who cuts themselves instead of watching American Idol?

What if you decided to fight for that girl who sleeps around instead of gossiping about her?

Prisoners of War

There are people around you everyday who are prisoners of our enemy, the devil. God wants to use you to set them free. Jesus conquered sin so that we could be filled with the Holy Spirit. With God literally living inside of us, we are to attack the prison and free the captives. All they need is to hear the truth and believe it. Some have been tortured with sickness, disease, deformities, addictions and demons. God frees them from all that too.

Our job is to give what we’ve been given. We’ve been given the same Holy Spirit that Jesus was given. Through the Holy Spirit He spoke truth, healed the sick, cast out demons, and raised the dead. God’s waiting for someone to sacrifice their own selfishness so that He can fight through them!

How can we hold back the only power that can change the world?

Traitors

Without even knowing it many of us our helping Satan keep people in bondage. How? Being passive. Ignoring God’s voice when He tells us to talk to, or pray for, someone allows them to stay bound. The more obvious way to help the devil is to use your words to confirm what he tells them. Gossiping, spreading rumors, putting them down, making fun them, or AGREEING with people who are doing these things all helps the devil keep them in prison. Christians aren’t even supposed to be doing these things in the first place, but sadly, it’s all over us.

Choose Your Side (What sides?)

Both passive and active traitors have one thing in common…sin. Sin in our lives affects those around us. Like it or not, its the truth. We can’t fight on both sides of the war at the same time. We become better weapons in God’s hands the more we let go of our sinful nature. God demands perfection. Obviously, we aren’t perfect. That’s why Jesus’ blood was so important. He paid for us to be perfect in God’s eyes. So, our imperfection is covered by His blood. All that we have to do is believe. One day we will get new sinless bodies. Until then, we are at war with our own flesh. But it’s worth the fight. Whatever sinful desire you sacrifice, God totally makes up for in the spirit. There are awesome things God wants to do through us. Everything Jesus did and more! We shouldn’t let some worthless sin habit keep us from the greatest adventure of our lives.

Run towards God and He will purify you.

“Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. 29 For our God is a devouring fire.” Hebrews 12:28-29 (New Living Translation)

Run towards the fire.

Google goes solar funding $1 per watt solar panels

Googling Green
Recently Google posted an article on there blog about encouraging green energy. They also made it obvious that, as usual, they were ready to put their money where their mouth was.

Where is Google’s mouth?
Well, at moment Google’s billion dollar mouth is salivating all over a change-the-world sandwich. First bite: The way we produce electricity.

A few years back Google invested in a little startup called Nanosolar. Fast forward to today’s headline and we see that Nanosolar has come a long way. They figured out a way to “print” solar panels. That’s right, semi-conductor ink and all. This process turned out to be way cheaper than traditional ways of producing solar panels. That’s why they can charge such a coal busting rate of $1 per watt.

We’re talking about finally accomplishing what the tree-huggers have been praying for the last several decades: Renewable Energy as a our main source of electricity.

Revolution?!… where… I don’t…?
Well, for now the company is backed up for 18 months from their first shipping date. So it may be awhile before the general public gets their hands on these things. But you just wait. One day you’ll all be at Target/Walmart getting some eggs and you’ll pass by the rolls of Nanosolar sheets. I’ll be there fighting through the nerds to get my hands on the most abundant power source on earth: Sunlight.

Body Clock ‘Control Switch’ Found

Our DNA amazes me. It is a complete language describing how to build a human. Beautiful. The good ole BBC came out with this interesting story a day or two ago. “Researchers say they have identified the chemical switch that controls the genetic mechanism regulating our internal body clock.” Read on with the links below.

Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year 2007: w00t

That’s right…”This year’s winning word first became popular in competitive online gaming forums as part of what is known as l33t (“leet,” or “elite”) speak—an esoteric computer hacker language in which numbers and symbols are put together to look like letters. Although the double “o” in the word is usually represented by double zeroes, the exclamation is also known to be an acronym for “we owned the other team”—again stemming from the gaming community.”1. w00t (interjection)expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word “yay” ex.{ w00t! I won the contest! } or more accurately { w00t! 10 head-shots in a row!} Digital Culture has exploded on in large part to the success of video games and the evolution of online gaming. Soon we’ll all be speaking to each other in chat room shorthand. TTL.

Microwave beam car stopper fries cars in nanoseconds.

There is a new weapon on the police force. At 5 feet 200 pounds an officer may not be effective on the highways when faced with runaway criminals. Given his stature he may not even make it back to his patrol car before the vandals completely escape. But 5 feet 200 pounds of microwave laser gun mounted to the top of a patrol car would get the job done easily. As soon as the bad guys started to pull away the microwave beam would “fry” all electronics in the get-away car, rendering it motionless. Eureka Aerospace has built such a weapon and are getting powerful results.
