Here's the resume of a man I know who's a good one. I can connect you

is there an open door, Lord? my resume (sorta)

by David L. Smith on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 9:54pm

I am strong believer in giving the Lord something to work with - if you want something; or, if you are looking for something - you gotta ask!

So, below is a brief resume of some of my skills, ability, experience to see if there is an open door for employment.

I have 10+ years of security experience - that includes 4 years of military experience as a Security Specialist in the U.S. Air Force. In addition, I have extensive security experience in the hospitality industry - including VIP security. I even escorted Naomi Judd during a meeting. In addition, I helped provide back-stage security at the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville, TN.

I also have experience as a Security Dept supervisor - I managed 13 employees at two different sites.

My security experience also flows with my "spiritual giftings". Called to be a watchman, I am very strong in discerning of spirits (not by MY talenty, ability or strength - but by the grace, mercy, and wisdom of the Lord). I am also strong in the prophetic, called into the office of a prophet/seer. My giftings, by way of Holy Spirit within, are - in certain ways, as "powerful" as anyone I have currently met. The demonic realm literally cannot be in my vicinity without me being aware of it (again - its not me that detects that, it is the Lord). I have encountered all levels of the demonic up to and including pricipalities, powers, 'jezebel', and those possessed by the 'antichrist' spirit.

I don't really understand why I have such a strong gifting in this area, but the Lord, I believe, knows why. Sometimes, it gets a bit uncanny. I regulary "sweep through the compass" to see if there are any demons (devil spirits) near by. They tend to avoid me whenever possible - because they know that if I come close by, I will command them - in the name of Jesus Christ - to cease whatever activities that they are doing.

My point being - evil cannot exist within my vicinity without me being aware of it.

Apllying that "spiritual gifting' to my security experience - there is little that I am not aware of when I 'focus' - and when I "work" security (be it physical or spiritual), I always 'focus'. In addition, I have an innate, natural ability in the use of weapons. An expert marksman, when I practice regulary, I literally never miss. While in the Air Force, I used to regularly practice what I can "eye shots" - at 40 yeards. With a handgun. At 20 yards, I could pick a corner of the eye. For a time, I even shot archery, using a compoiund bow. I eventually had to stop shooting bulls-eyes - because I kept ruining too many arrows.

I also have some hand-to-hand self defence training. But, I hate to fight. I try to practice some of the principles from the "Art of War" by Sun Tzu - "The greatest battle ever won is the one that is never fought - because the battle is won before it is fought." Having said that - I can still take a handgun away from a trained person - if they are within 6 feet of me.

But, wisdom has come with "age". I don't need to prove anything anymore - and I have peace. Indeed, I had a 'Word' spoken over me that I am God's "Man of Peace".

In addition to my security experience, I have lots of hospitality experience - 5+ years. That is because I have a "servant's heart". I enjoy helping people. Too many people in the world don't really provide customer service - they simply do what needs to be done to keep getting a paycheck. That is not customer service. In several of my jobs, I have received awards for excellence in customer service.

I've also received rewards for sales - highest sales in jewelry, for example.

I have a wide variety of experience - I even sorta like cleaning bathrooms. Its a job that requires a servant's heart - if you do it properly. I don't mind. It is something that needs to be done. Of course, it makes it better if I get PAID to do it! But I have volunteered before to clean the sanctuary, bathrooms, etc at our church before. It also gave me an opportunity to pray for all those who went in there.

In addition, I have a "mind to work". When I go to a job, I work. Sometimes, people like to "milk the clock" or talk with their friends. I'm always friendly with everyone - but if you want a job done, I do it. Then, I look for something else to do. I enjoy staying busy.

I'm also a good driver. Accident free since I started driving when I was 18. That was more than 30 years ago. And, I haven't had a moving violation ticket in more than 10 years (and THAT was on a DOWNHILL slope of a highway... I still don't think that was "fair"). I have also been licensed, previously, with a Class 'B', passenger endoresment. Drove buses - up to "Greyhound" bus size. Currently, I have a class 'C'. I've driven across country numerous times - California to Virginia was the longest stretch.

What else? I guess you could call me an armor bearer. I enjoy praying at meetings. When I am at a meeting, generally speaking, the devil spirits tend to behave - or stay away. Again, not because of me - but because of the Spirit of God working within me. I also tend to "throw up" walls of Holy Spirit Light and Fire around wherever the service is going on. Does wonders for a good atmosphere.

God also shows me the heart of people. I can pretty much "see" anyone's "heart". There are very few people that can block "me". Of course, again, I can do nothing in the supernatural - its all God. Lots of times, I can 'see' old wounds and scars - it gives me an opportunity to pray for them. Generally speaking, if I can see a person's eyes - I can "see" their heart.

And, I've never been wrong about people. That can ONLY be God. It is not humanly possible to never be wrong about people, generally speaking. But, I haven't been wrong about anyone that I've met... well, at least not since about 1985 or so. That's about how long I've been "serios" with God. But, I was born again around age 8 or 10. And this is my 'jubilee' year.

Oh, I have an Associate's degree in management; GPA 3.90.

Different kind of resume, eh?

But, like I said, its mostly to see if there is an open door.

Lord, lead me, guide me, direct me - here am I, send me. In the Name of Jesus Christ, amen!

When politicians, agency officials and other establishment types discuss the pros and cons of Wal-Mart opening stores in poor, retail-starved neighborhoods in the District, they often talk about pretty high-minded stuff. Fair pay. Job training. Environmental safeguards.
I agree with this completely, particularly number 2- trying to imitate other ministries is the kiss of death.

Carter says Egyptian military likely to obey will of people

Can there be anyone more stupid than Jimmy Carter? HOW did he EVER become President?

But he messed up the USA so much during his four years we are still suffering the outcome of that.

From the article linked below:
"I think the Muslim Brotherhood is not anything to be afraid of in the upcoming (Egyptian) political situation and the evolution I see as most likely," Carter said. "They will be subsumed in the overwhelming demonstration of desire for freedom and true democracy."

I think if I recall, after the Shah fell at his behest it's exactly what he said about the Iranian people. What a doofus he is.

A Tipping Point Is Nearing in the US Economy

I am NOT a bear on the US economy, I am a realist with economic understanding that sees things that are not as they are being declared by Government and media. We are being lied to. The government is terrified of doing what needs to be done. The supposed revival of the economy we keep hearing about is based on a lie. The lie is, flood the economy with money and people will spend. That is happening, but it is all inflating a balloon to the tipping point.

Stock Markets are reacting to the steady drip drip drip of "good news". The truth would terrify people if they knew it.

The news says our unemployment rate is 10%. The truth is it's nearly 25%.

The news says inflation is 3%. The truth is inflation is over 10% right now and accelerating rapidly. Interest rates must reflect the true inflation rate or we end up with an inversion and distortion. When interest rates start to move toward true inflation rates the stock market must react. I watched it happen in 1975-1980. Carter 1. Now that we are in Carter 2 history repeats. The stock market retreated by almost 50% during those years. It will again. Look at the very long term chart. Up markets make higher highs and higher lows. I see a market that has made some higher highs but lower lows. This doesn't indicate powerful upward pressure. IF the inflation driven interest rates enter the market there is no question that the equities will drop in response as they always do. If my formulas are any sense that means a market in the 6000 range on the Dow, 700 on the S&P after the change. That will be a good place to take a position.

There is activity in Mergers and Acquisitions. Many of these are driven by money burning a hole in corporate pockets. Money from Quantitative easing. Some of these are simply stock swaps, two twenty five thousand dollar cats for a fifty thousand dollar dog.

AND there is consumer sentiment. There is such a steady drumbeat from politicians hoping to cover their rear ends and a compliant news media including Fox Business News and CNBC to propound the myths being offered.

There is no appetite for truth. People that express concern about the economy are shouted down by those who have bought the lies of the media and government doublespeak. They are ridiculed and pilloried.

Everyone is proclaiming peace peace but there IS NO PEACE.

IF you read this article you will grasp what I keep talking about. I am not alone, but I am in the minority.
