Real Talk 2019

Photo by Ryan, Pike’s Peak at sunrise 12-13-19

Hello everyone and God bless you all!  We are just about half way through December and 2019 is almost history, so I’d like to share my Christian American perspective on where we are at right now in our time.  It’s a perspective based on God’s Word, supernatural experiences, and my walk with Jesus.  It is also a perspective based on living as an American (born and raised) my entire 41 years on earth.  This post is just me sitting down with you all and having some real talk about 2019.

It is amazing that 2020 is just around the corner!  Another decade has gone by as we march towards the end.  Here in America, a lot has changed in that time.  Parts of our country have become so depraved and immoral that they are now unrecognizable as America.  Cities that have become havens for lawlessness and homelessness.  “Sanctuary cities” is what they like to call them.  Some have become so bad there are drug needles and human feces in the streets and crimes go unpunished.  Don’t believe me?  Check out San Francisco, L.A., and Sacramento.

There are local governments run by radical socialists who openly hate America and our Constitution.  We also have radical Muslims running local governments who openly admit to hating Jews, Christians, and America (I know not all Muslims are like that).  People say we are headed for a second Civil War.  If you ask me, we have already been in a Civil War for quite some time.  We just haven’t arrived at the point of bearing arms on the battlefield yet.  Although sadly, there have already been real casualties in the streets.

2019 in America has been a tinderbox of violence and hatred stirred up by a liberal propaganda machine they like to call “the news.”  24/7 lies are what they peddle.  They do it because they hate God and they hate America.  They want a new world order, which is their sick illusion of grandeur that a socialist one world government will somehow bring them a glorious utopia.

They might want to go ask Venezuelans how that is working out.  Our neighbor has been trying to get his parents out of there for years.  It is so much worse than people know.  Did you know people had to eat zoo animals to survive?  Did you know educated teachers became prostitutes?  There is no utopia with socialism!  There is poverty and violence built on a foundation of lies and greed.  Socialism is just a bridge to tyranny.

Socialism is not a share the wealth program.  It is a consolidate and control the wealth scam to funnel all the power and wealth into the hands of the power hungry greedy few who want to dominate you forever, and they will do it through violence.  What do you think Antifa is?  They are socialist violence.  They operate just like Hitler’s brown shirts.  That is socialism friends.  They will literally beat you in the streets, point a gun at your head, take all your wealth, and then welcome you to their “utopia” as you are standing in line for week old bread wondering what happened to your country.

In 2019, there are people in America and Europe who are purposefully tearing down national borders and sovereignty to make their new world order dream come true.  They want a one world government and their motto is “order out of chaos.”  The chaos they are creating is by design and it is designed to destroy the current order we have been living in since World War II.  Keep paying attention to prophecy because we already see all the players being positioned for World War III and the coming one world government of the evil one.  Those who promote the new world order are serving the evil one and they are building it for him.

It is dangerous to speak the truth in 2019.  Those in power who own the social media outlets are one with those who want the evil one’s new world order, and they are doing everything they can to shut down free speech.  We are living in a time when people call evil good and good evil.  A time when people think that truth is whatever you want it to be.  A time when people not only hate God, but want Him and His Word out of society completely.

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God–having a form of godliness but denying its power.  Have nothing to do with them.”

2 Timothy 3:1-5

“Woe to those who call evil good

and good evil,

who put darkness for light

and light for darkness,

who put bitter for sweet

and sweet for bitter.”

Isaiah 5:20

They want you to believe that God’s Word is a lie, but their belief in things like 100 genders is the truth.  And if you don’t believe their truth, they say you are a hateful bigot deserving of punishment.  I don’t care what they say, God’s Word is truth!  When we were in L.A. we saw a Mexican dude standing outside of a girl’s bathroom at LAX.  He had a wig and his hairy man legs were sticking out of a mini skirt.  I don’t care what anybody says about it, his gender is male no matter what he calls himself.  And if he had tried to go into the bathroom with my daughter, he and I would have had a problem.  There would be no violence, but you better believe he is not going in there with my daughter.  You got that liberals?  Quit trying to destroy our society as you throw a fit over God’s order!  Male or female folks, and that’s the truth.

“This is the written account of Adam’s line.

When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.  He created them male and female and blessed them.  And when they were created, he called them “man.”

Genesis 5:1-2

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”

Jesus praying in John 17:17

People need to understand that the destruction of our society’s morals and values is by design.  All of the race baiting on the news, the gay agenda, the laws to murder more babies, the leftist and gay agenda in the schools, the political hatred from the left, and all the socialist anti-American talk.  It’s all by design to destroy us!  Those in Hollywood are complicit in it too.  I just saw this morning on Twitter that Netflix made a sick mocking comedy about a gay Jesus!  Total blasphemy!  I’m telling you folks, we have got to be very close to the end!

The gay agenda has become such a political weapon that now they even mock Jesus Christ and blaspheme His Holy Name with their homosexual filth!  All I can say is God will not be mocked and they will reap what they sow.  Jesus is coming soon and next time He comes He won’t be riding on a donkey.  My advice to them is to repent before it’s too late!

“From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”

Matthew 4:17

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.  A man reaps what he sows.  The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

Galatians 6:7-8

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

“Behold, I am coming soon!  Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”

Jesus speaking in Revelation 22:7

What will 2020 be like in this country?  It will most likely be rough politically, which will cause great conflict and stress in our society.  The socialist controlled democrats have been throwing an absolute violent fit since the American people firmly rejected their doctrine of lies in 2016.  We have seen people being attacked in the street for being white, wearing a red hat, being a Republican, being a conservative, and being a Christian.  The liberal dominated media stirred up that hatred folks!  Accusing guys like me of being racist when they are the ones who are racist and completely obsessed with skin color!  They declared it open season on God fearing American patriots and they quite literally encouraged people to commit acts of violence on us!

Those divisions of the flesh are from the evil one and he is the one causing all the violence and bloodshed through the liberal media propaganda.  You are not a racist just because you love your country and want to protect it!  They talk all that filth on stations like CNN because the globalists own the media and they are using hatred to get the new world order they want.  They are continually stirring up violence to cause the chaos they need to instigate a societal collapse.

They don’t want national sovereignty.  They want America and the nations of the world to fall!  They want to rule the world with a dominating global government!  That government will be run by the evil one for 7 years in the end and he will use the mark of the beast to enslave the people who are left during the Tribulation (also known as the time of Jacob’s trouble).  Do not accept that government and do not take the mark!

They already have the RFID microchip technology to do it and people are already getting it implanted in them just to do things like ride the train easier or get paid at work by scanning the chip in their hand.  I believe that will be the technology behind the mark because they can put all of our information on a chip and control us through it.  They are already using technology to track, control, and spy on us and they have been for a long time.  Yes, in 2019 we are seeing the build up to prophecy being fulfilled!

“He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

This calls for wisdom.  If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number.  His number is 666.”

Revelation 13:16-18

Now the dems want to continue with their ridiculous circus they call an impeachment trial as they continue their attack on Americans.  They have no grounds to impeach our President and they know it!  Their lies and false accusations will come back on them badly.  God hates false accusations.  The “impeachment” is just their chance to keep throwing a fit to make themselves feel better about getting beaten so badly in the election.  They are trying to remove our duly elected President and start a Civil War!

I pray their socialist agenda is wiped off the face of the earth and I am ready and willing to fight for my rights and freedom!  I don’t want a Civil War, but if that’s God’s will, so be it.  I’m never going to let a bunch of depraved atheist liberal socialists take my country, my freedom, or my life.  Me and mine will fight the good fight to the very end and I will protect those I love.  I’m never going to stop cutting down their lies with the mighty Sword of God’s Word either!

2019 has shown us that God’s Word is true!  We are seeing evidence of the end times all around us.  We have seen increased persecution of God’s Word and those who believe it.  We see the depravity that God’s Word told us we would see.  We see the hatred for God and we see that people’s love has grown cold.  God warned us these times were coming and we must stand firm to the end.

We even see more people messing with witchcraft and worshiping the evil one.  We have TV shows where people enter haunted houses and interact with demons.  More people are seeing demonic masquerading like glowing orbs and other manifestations.  As one who lived in a demon possessed house, I warn you with all my heart to flee from that evil and run to Jesus!!!  The spiritual war is going to continue to heat up and you better choose the right side!  Don’t mess around with evil, it will eventually kill you!  The evil one is a thief and a liar and he only comes to kill, steal, and destroy your soul!

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Jesus speaking in John 10:10

Nobody knows what will happen in 2020 and we don’t know the timing of the end, but I know and trust the One who does.  Jesus saw me through 2019 and I trust Him to see me through to the end.  If you don’t know Jesus, now is a real good time to meet Him!  The Bible is clear that we are going to see more madness as we approach the end.  Hold fast to Jesus and don’t let go!  Jesus is the only One who can save our souls!

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

Grace and peace to you all!












Beautiful Colorado Sunrise

Photo by Ryan, Sunrise 12-12-19

Good morning everyone.  It has been a rough week.  I had somebody speaking lies about me and falsely accusing me yesterday regarding what I preached on my blog a couple days ago, so I was dealing with that all afternoon.  It was very discouraging and I’m not even going to get into it.  On top of everything else with Celiac, my heart feels tired and beat down from it and I am asking the Lord to bring healing and peace to the situation.  Today, I am just going to show you some photos of the beautiful sunrise we had this morning.  I claim love and forgiveness over all false accusers and their false accusations against me and I am at peace in Jesus.  This is a new day the Lord has made and I choose to rejoice in Him and be glad, no matter what lying false preaching accusers say!

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 5:11-12

I took all these photos with my good Canon PowerShot SX50 HS camera.  Enjoy!









After I took those photos, I went to the front of the house and got some really cool shots of the full moon setting in the west.





Here is looking back east at the sunrise from the front of the house:



“The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his


Psalm 19:1

Thank You Lord for declaring Your glory in Your creation!  Have a blessed day everyone!  You are all in my prayers!  Don’t ever forget, Jesus loves you and He died for you to set you free from sin and death!

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

“for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Romans 10:13

Grace and peace to you all!


An Eventful Morning

Pic quote Matthew 22 v 37

It has been an eventful morning.  Our kids have a late start on Wednesdays, so I was taking our daughter to school this morning.  As we came out of our neighborhood, an older lady pulled in front of us out of the neighborhood next to us and she was driving all over the road.  She was swerving left and right and she just about hit a truck in the oncoming lane when we turned right at the round-a-bout.  It was quite a scene and I called the police.  Definitely not what I expected when I got up this morning!

I stayed on the phone with the police dispatch and stayed a safe distance behind the lady as we approached town.  I gave the dispatch lady the description of her car and the plates and explained it appeared she was older and was having trouble controlling the car.  It was either that or she was drunk.  My conversation with dispatch was over once the officer pulled her over.  The officer called me shortly after that and asked me a few questions.  He also said that she was indeed an older lady and she was not drunk or anything.  I let him know I was glad she was okay and explained that maybe she has arthritis and was having trouble turning the wheel.  He agreed and thanked me for calling.  He seemed very compassionate and helpful as are most of the police officers in our town.

You just never know when or how God is going to use you!  Sometimes He calls you to action right after you get up in the morning!  I am really glad we left at a later time today and I’m glad God used me to potentially stop a serious accident.  Praise God she is okay and she didn’t hit that truck!  Please pray for her.  I hope she has someone to help her if she needs it.  She just wanted to do some shopping in town and she wasn’t going to let her age or ailments stop her.  I can relate to that!

Always be prayed up and ready to go in God’s armor.  It might be early in the morning and you might be tired, but we need to be ready to obey as God leads.  May we always look out for our neighbors and love them.

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.”

1 Corinthians 13:13

Grace and peace to you all!


Colorado Bobcat

Hello everyone!  Just a quick post tonight.  A neighbor posted some cool photos of a Bobcat the other day and I thought you might like to see it.  Bobcats live here in Colorado, but it is very rare to see one, especially so close to Denver.  I have mentioned that this area use to be a Native American hunting ground and it is still very wild.  This Bobcat was walking through the golf course just up the street from our home.  They are bigger than people think.  Mountain lions and bears use it as a travel path too.  Never know what you are going to run into out here in Colorado!  It is a beautiful part of God’s creation, but you don’t want to get tangled up with that big kitty.  If you see one, it is wise to respect it and give it plenty of space.

God is awesome!

“You bring darkness, it becomes night, and all the beasts of the forest prowl.”

It’s About Why He Was Born!

manger scene Thomas Kinkade
“The Nativity” by Thomas Kinkade

I was thinking about Christmas and reading about the birth of Jesus in the Book of Matthew today.  I am always struck by the power of the angel’s statement to Joseph regarding the reason he was to call him Jesus.  Remember, Christmas is all about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and giving Him glory for who He is and why He was born!  It is the greatest birthday celebration in the whole world!

I have been blogging on WordPress for over a year now.  I started in August of 2018, so last December was my first Christmas as a blogger.  Unfortunately, I ran into quite a few legalistic believers and false preachers during that time that were very hateful and judgmental about Christmas.  As a matter of fact, in all my time blogging, those are the people that have given me the most trouble, not unbelievers!  In the most loving way I can say this, I am not putting up with it this year or any other year.

There are a lot of people out there that claim to know Jesus and they pretend to have fellowship with us, but they are actually legalistic wolves that believe they can earn their salvation through works.  All they want to do is tear at you with their vile lies and point their bitter judgmental fingers at you while they try to beat you over the head with verses they don’t understand.  And they don’t understand them because most likely, they don’t have the Holy Spirit.  Beware of such “believers.”  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying Christians who don’t celebrate Christmas are false believers (although it makes me wonder).  Some are real believers that have somehow got mixed up with legalism, but others are straight up false preachers.

They came at me with their misunderstandings of Jeremiah 10 and condemned me for having a Christmas tree.  I have never carved an idol in my life, that’s not what a Christmas tree is, and I sure don’t worship it!  It’s a decoration for crying out loud!  Some people are so legalistic it’s ridiculous.  Such people still think they can fulfill the Law on their own and they are not trusting in Christ’s finished work on the cross.  They act as if they are still under Old Testament Law as if they could be righteous on their own.  Jesus fulfilled the Law because we can’t!  No one will be justified by observing the Law.  Read Galatians and Romans.  God’s Word will prove it to you!

Here is our Christmas tree. The star at the top represents the star of Bethlehem. We string it with lights because Jesus is the Light of the world. The ornaments show the love our family has for Him and each other. God is love and Christmas is all about His love for us!

Other people don’t like the word Christmas and want to argue about the origins of the word.  One of them even told me it “grieves her heart” to here the phrase “Merry Christmas.”  She was a former Catholic and her reasoning for being grieved was based on some weird Catholic painting depicting King Herod’s orders to kill the boys in Bethlehem (not sure why someone would want a painting like that).  She tried to tell me Christmas is celebrating Herod’s slaughter (still one of the weirdest things I’ve ever heard).  Then a couple of her friends jumped in the conversation pointing their fingers at me with all kinds of accusations and judgments.  It was quite strange and crazy, and I still shake my head at that one.  We know about King Herod trying to kill Jesus and we know he ordered the murder of all the boys in Bethlehem aged two and under (Matthew 2:13-18), but that is absolutely not why we celebrate Christmas.

Others want to argue about the date of Christmas as if we don’t know that Jesus wasn’t born on December 25th.  That’s not the point in our time.  The point is we celebrate Jesus and He is glorified worldwide through the celebration of His birthday!  Christmas puts the focus on Jesus and shares the Gospel with the world!

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12

I don’t understand why a believer in Jesus Christ would not celebrate the birth of their Lord and Savior, but if that’s you, I don’t judge you.  I am not here to argue with legalistic people.  I am here to preach the Gospel!  I love Jesus Christ with all of my heart and I’m going to celebrate Him and worship Him in spirit and in truth!  Judge me if you want to.  Jesus is my Lord and Savior and He deserves all the glory and praise!

I say “Merry Christmas” and if that offends you, tough cookies.  All of the people who subscribe to my blog now have never treated me that way and I thank you all for that.  The false preachers who attacked me learned pretty quick not to mess with me and they are gone now.  I preach the truth boldly and I will not back down.  If you are reading this blog for the first time and you are a legalistic Christmas hater, you will probably want to stay off my blog in December.  Your hateful comments will just get blocked, you won’t like talking with me anyway because I will preach the truth to you, and your misunderstandings of Scripture will never defeat the truth of God’s Word.  Your legalism will never defeat my freedom in Christ either (Galatians 5:1)!

Romans 8:1-2 burns bright in my heart!  I am not a slave to the law of sin and death!  I am righteous through His blood alone and I celebrate and worship Him because He died to save my soul and set me free from sin and death!

Now that I have been clear on that, let’s take a look at the birth of Jesus and what the angel of the Lord told Joseph:

“This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.  Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.  She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”–which means, “God with us.”

When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.  But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son.  And he gave him the name Jesus.”

Matthew 1:18-25

That is why we celebrate the birth of Jesus!  He was born to save us from our sins!  His Name in Hebrew is Yeshua, which literally means “the Lord is salvation.”  The root verb of His Name means “to deliver, to rescue, and to save.”  He is God in human flesh!  God with us!  Jesus rescues us, delivers us, and saves us from sin and death!  The greatest gift God ever gave to mankind was coming to earth as a beautiful little baby boy to save the world!

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?  We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”

Matthew 2:1-2

Don’t ever forget why Jesus was born and why we celebrate Christmas!  Jesus is Lord and He is our only Savior!  It is His birthday and just like the Magi did, I want to honor and worship Him as I celebrate His birth!  Jesus Christ is Lord!  May He be celebrated and glorified throughout the whole world!

Grace and peace to you all, and Merry Christmas!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus speaking in John 3:16











What A Difference

Photo by Ryan, Sunrise 12-5-19

What a difference a day makes!  Yesterday, I was in pretty bad pain and I had to get a cavity filled on top of that.  Guess what?!  By the time I got to the dentist the pain in my body was completely gone!  Also, the cavity filling went great!  I didn’t even need a shot for pain before the procedure!  I don’t know what you all are praying, but God is answering!  I have pretty much no pain this morning and it’s incredible!  My tooth is fixed, the pain is gone, and it’s a brand new day!  Thank You Jesus!

I haven’t been without pain in the morning in a very long time!  I’m kind of sitting here in shock.  I’m not used to feeling this good!  I really pray the pain stays away for good!  Every day has been a fight for me for many years and I wake up gritty ready to fight the pain every morning.  Not today!

I just want to give the Lord big praise!  Thank You Jesus for answering our prayers Lord!  Thank You for taking the pain!  Thank You for blessing the cavity filling!  Thank You for always being with me and never leaving me!  Thank You for Your comfort and love!

Have a blessed and beautiful Friday everyone!  God answers prayers and miracles really do happen!  Trust in Him and believe!

“My heart is steadfast, O God;

I will sing and make music with all

my soul.

Awake, harp and lyre!

I will awaken the dawn.

I will praise you, O LORD, among the


I will sing of you among the peoples.

For great is your love, higher than the


your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,

and let your glory be over all the


Psalm 108:1-5

Here is one of my favorite Christian bands and one of my favorite worship songs of all time.  I love playing this on my guitar and singing to the Lord!  Hallelujah Lord, Hallelujah!!!

Take A Knee

Knight Amen

I love that poster quote!  The evil one may think he has me beat with all this pain and suffering I’m going through, but when I’m on my knees to the Lord I am strong!  It has been a rough week.  I couldn’t write yesterday because of the pain, then I had an eye appointment I barely made it to.  Today, I have even more pain and I have a dentist appointment to get a cavity fixed.  Pain on top of pain.  Show of hands, who likes going to the dentist?  That’s what I thought, nobody does.  No matter what pain we are going through, we must give it to the Lord.  He is the One who sustains us in times of trouble.

Our dentist is great and I have no need to worry, but it will be tough laying back in the chair with the pain I have in my body.  The filling is nothing compared to that.  I appreciate your prayers.  My appointment is at 3 p.m. Mountain.

Pain is strange at times.  When you live with a chronic illness that includes chronic pain, you get used to different levels of pain.  The pain you have one day might be less or more pain the next day.  What is minor pain to us may seem major to someone who does not suffer chronic pain.  On days when the pain is minor it can feel like there is no pain at all, even as you sit in pain.  I am always hurting.  It’s just a matter of how bad.

Today is fairly bad and I am praying up and doing everything I can to make it to my dentist appointment.  I have to get this cavity fixed, so I have to set my face like flint and get there despite the pain.  His grace will be sufficient because Jesus is enough for me.

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.  We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

2 Corinthians 4:7-9

I get on my knees to Jesus and I cry out to Him!  I lift my prayers to Him because He is my help and my refuge!  He is my Lord and Savior!  His Holy Spirit gives me strength and peace in the storm and I know He is with me by the Spirit!  I am a child of God, redeemed, forgiven, and free!  Nothing can snatch me out of His hand, and as I rise up and say, “Amen,” the devil is crushed under my feet!

“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.

The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.”

Romans 16:20

Trust in Jesus no matter how bad the pain!  He will see you through to the end!  May His will be done!

Grace and peace to you all!
