The "IT" Factor

Updated on September 10, 2017

My name is Daniel Austhof. I am a survivor and a warrior and a man of God. For over a decade my life has been an ongoing test of standing up against the horrors of Sin in this World and standing up to the Demons of the Devil, who seem to have free access to me. The only thing that keep me going is my Faith in Jesus Christ and that His power flows through my veins, making me "Entheos" (N-thay-oce)- meaning "God Within". The other Greek phrase "I am Hoi Eudaimwn" (oy u-dime-win) means "I am the Blessed One"- the name of my book and my motto in life. I'm not sure what took me so long to put 2 and 2 together, but my Biblical, historical counterpart in this defiance against evil is my namesake, Daniel- "Daniel and the Lions Den". We both exhibit the type of defiant, militant, "what should I fear?" type of attitude that I feel is very definitive of Faith. In this piece, I refer to this Faith as "The IT Factor". This Faith, this "IT Factor" is very helpful in battling or at least standing up to the "Lions" in our own lives. It works for me, I'm still here! Most people would have incinerated or fallen to these Lions by now- but DON'T think that I fear the same!!!!

-------------------------------


Throw me into that lions’ den

Stamp your signet on my tomb

You realize what you have done

When Satan chuckles at my doom

But See this calm supremacy

Of my faith over circumstance

Why would I fear these lions when,

I got angelic hosts at my command?

And I’m just so full of IT?

Meaning I’m Entheos- God within!!!




Y' know that legend of Daniel and the lions?

(Believe.)

The one chance for deliverance for all mankind

(Believe.)

Stand for somethin’, Trust in Heaven, fight like Hell, expect Divine

(Believe.)

But y’all say “That was just a fable son, once upon a time,

King Henry the 8th created the Bible in 15…..

**Shut!!!- Up!!!

‘You a simpleton or blind? - who ya think you’re dealin’ with?!

Fella! I’m Daniel- that story is mine!!!

(Believe.)

Y’all say “Dan, you’re full of it!”

Ha! Yeah, I know

IT’s literally impossible

IT’s technically supernatural

Daniel and I got IT- that "IT Factor"- God given

Strong conviction- strong livin’

Heaven destined- Hell driven

Just because you don’t- dont mean IT’s metaphorical

Just ‘cause its indefinable- don't mean IT's mythological

Just because you can’t- don’t mean that IT’s impossible

Just because you’re in denial don’t mean IT ain’t rhetorical

IT’s glowing from our auras- don’t that make IT un-ignorable?

So don’t worry ‘bout me- you just do you…..

Face your lions- Face your demons

Face your fears- IT’s just believin’

Defy ‘em- stare ‘em in the eye

If you’re a Daniel, IT’s your show of arms

Let this be your battle cry!!!

(I Am Hoi Eudaimwn)



Hater, still I stagger through the valley of the shadow

But Fella still i bellow from the belly of the battle

What? Me fear dying?!- My veins flow with Divine!

A warrior of Jehovah- dontcha’ think that I’ll be fine?!!

And when that bell finally tolls- when it is my time

Jesus Christ, I'm coming home!- all Eternity is mine

But that moment isn't now- still got work to do

What God’s given to me- gotta share with you.......

But all these lions still abound!....how?

Ahhh. Uh-huh!!!!

O.K…. Even a hater loves a Gladiator

So maybe these lions- Maybe these flames

Maybe these demons- Maybe these pains

Are gifts from my Creator

Like a furnace to my armor, like a flint to my blade

If I flee from my demons or I hide from my lions

I’ll never know how strong,- I’ll never know how sharp….

I'd set limitations on the Greatness I am made

So rile the Hell outta those Lions- Fire the furnace- Raise the heat!

Keep stokin’ the inferno- make that mother f*cker hotter!

Stare them in the eyes- Make those savage b*tches madder!

White flames, blue flames- My Faith with lead me through flames

Lions will devour cowards

Thin skinned will incinerate

But remember that I’m full of IT!

Don’t think that I fear the same!!!!!

All these lions advancin’, roarin’, salivatin’

Flashing fangs- assassins of Satan

But I stand firm, what should I fear?

I’m full of IT- God's up in here!

Lions don’t kill- it’s the terror when they roar

They ruthlessly rule- never challenged to war

But the fiercest Lion has no more teeth- Than any Daniel has belief

Me? I just grin and stare ‘em in the eye

I make ‘em blush, then make ‘em mine

What lions can’t terrify they gotta admire

I don't even hate ‘em- they are what they are

And why would I kill what I can acquire?

Truth be told- lions are gorgeous, fallen angels- deranged

Tell ‘em they are pretty kitties- call them names, stroke their manes

Tell ‘em you can offer more- woo ‘em, make those pussies yours

So Tell me one more time,

Tell me that I’m full of IT!

I know!!! But who in Hell is messin’ with this clique?!

With Jesus’ power in my veins and the Angels as my allies

With my new harem of lionesses and a couple down demons

With the ring upon my finger and the undead at my beckoning

I’m Daniel Aragorn back from the dead- "You messed with the WROOONG Man!

Satan Sauron, I'M your reckoning!!!"
