A Wicked Agenda

Photo credit: CNET

We are rapidly seeing more signs of the times all around us. People wonder what we Christians mean when we say that. I’ll give you two recent examples. Netflix making a sick child pornography film for pedophiles, and Governor Newsom of California signing SB 145, which effectively legalizes pedophilia in California! These are clear signs of the end times that the Bible warns us about.

I have warned for many years that the LGBTQ is a wicked agenda (see my post titled Bad Move Chick-Fil-A) and I tried to warn people that they were even pushing for the legalization of pedophilia with their LGBTQ+P agenda. Hope people are listening now!

“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

Netflix and Governor Newsom need to be reminded that pedophilia is a heinous crime that is illegal in our country. The authorities need to shut that sick Netflix movie down, and Newsom needs to be removed from office for breaking the law, and for dereliction of duty! SB 145 needs to be erased from the law books in California immediately! It makes it legal for an adult to have sex with a minor as young as 14 as long as it is “consensual” (as if a kid could consent to such a thing!) and the adult is no more than 10 years older! So, a 24 year old can have sex with a 14 year old kid and a judge can decide whether or not the adult needs to register as a sex offender! Folks, that also means Newsom just legalized statutory rape!

So, California is sinking even deeper into immorality and wickedness as their state burns. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and it angers Him greatly when people hurt kids. God will punish people for such sins!

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 18:6

Jesus was not messing around when He said that! I am warning the whole world, don’t hurt kids! Do everything you can to protect kids! God will punish you severely if you hurt kids! If you hurt kids, Jesus said it would be better for you to be drowned! Are you listening yet, Newsom? How about you, Netflix?

Here is a very well written article regarding SB 145. I completely agree with the author. The LGBTQ+P (you know, “+P” for pedophiles) claims the law is a victory to end discrimination against them, but that is a lie. It has nothing to do with discrimination, and everything to do with opening the floodgates of wickedness towards the legalization of pedophilia!

False Equality-SB 145 Places More Children At Risk by Ian Haworth, Townhall

“Any support for SB-145 is nothing other than evidence of moral depravity under the false veil of achieving “equality.”

Ian Haworth, Columnist, Townhall.com

That’s exactly what it is, moral depravity! Making illegal movies for pedophiles, and passing laws legalizing pedophilia has nothing to do with equality! It is evil straight from the devil himself, and all who practice sexual immorality will be punished, especially those who hurt kids! All the depraved people who are pushing the LGBTQ+P agenda better take heed of what Jesus said about that millstone, your neck, and the depths of the sea. I am warning you, if you test God by hurting kids, you will find out want He meant!

The entire gay agenda was never about equality and rights. This was always about trying to normalize and legalize their depravity, and forcing the rest of us to accept it. Let’s see what God has to say about sexual immorality (like Newsom signing a law that allows adults to rape minors) and the sexual immorality of homosexuality.

“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.”

1 Corinthians 6:18

“It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.”

1 Thessalonians 4:3-8

The Lord will punish men for sins such as pedophilia and homosexuality. There is punishment in this life, and if they don’t repent there will be punishment for eternity. I strongly suggest they repent of their vile sin and turn to Jesus!

The LGBTQ+P is a wicked agenda that is pushing for pedophilia to be viewed as a “sexual orientation” just like how they view homosexuality. Let me be very clear here, pedophilia is not a sexual orientation! It is a sin and a crime, and it should never be accepted as normal or right! Homosexuality is also a sin. That’s what God calls it. He doesn’t call it a sexual orientation. God made us male and female and the only normal, right, and holy union is between a man and a woman. People who live sexually immoral lives are not rejecting man’s laws. They are rejecting God, His Word, and His salvation!

I plead with everyone in every country in the world to avoid sexual immorality like the plague! Do not call evil good and good evil like the wicked are doing. Pedophilia is wrong, sinful, and evil! We all know this because God has written right and wrong in our hearts! Those who disobey and do evil are fighting God Himself. Their punishment will be swift and just!

“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.”

Colossians 3:5-6

The LGBTQ+P is a wicked agenda full of sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, and they idolize their sin as they fight and mock God. We must fight their sick agenda as they attempt to take over the schools and society with their depravity! Our children’s safety, purity, innocence, and future is literally at stake!

Jesus is coming back soon, and people better repent of their wickedness. Jesus will forgive you if you are living a sexually immoral life, but you must repent of your sin and seek forgiveness! If you don’t, you will pay the price on earth and in eternity, and don’t say I didn’t warn you.

“Immediately after the distress of those

days

‘the sun will be darkened,

and the moon will not give its light;

the stars will fall from the sky,

and the heavenly bodies will be

shaken.’

At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”

Jesus speaking of His return in Matthew 24:29-31

“If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”

Revelation 20:15

“Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”

Revelation 22:12-16

God offers grace, mercy, and forgiveness to even the most vile and evil of sinners. I truly hope Netflix, Governor Newsom, every member of the California legislature, every member of the LGBTQ+P agenda, and anyone else who supports pedophilia, repent of their wickedness and come to Jesus! If our country allows the Democrats, Hollywood, and their gay agenda army to legalize raping kids, our country will be destroyed! Repent!

“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Revelation 19:11-16

“He who testifies to these things says,

“Yes, I am coming soon.”

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.”

Revelation 22:20-21

When Jesus comes back, He will not be riding on a donkey! He brings the wrath of God and the armies of Heaven to strike down all evil on earth! I say again, run away from the tide of sexual immorality, depravity, and wickedness in this world, and repent! Do not call right wrong and wrong right! Do not call evil good and good evil! Woe to those who do that! Woe to those who engage in sexual immorality! Woe to those who hurt kids! Repent, or you will face the wrath of God!

“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

“First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.”

2 Peter 3:3-13

Don’t ever forget that God is full of grace and truth! Don’t ever forget that God is just! Don’t ever forget that someday God will pour out His wrath and justice on all the wickedness on this earth with fire! God will not be mocked! Flee from evil, flee from sexual immorality, and DON’T EVER HURT KIDS! Jesus is Lord! Come, Lord Jesus!

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

Romans 6:23

Grace and peace to you all in the Name of Jesus!

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

Matthew 4:17

A Fresh Start

Photo by Ryan, Site of our new Florida home

Hello friends and family! Thought you might like to see the future site of our new home here in Florida. Right now it is just an empty piece of land, but in about 7 or 8 months there will be a beautiful Spanish style home there for our family. We already bought the lot and put money down on the house, so construction will begin soon. This land is a huge blessing and it represents a much needed fresh start for our family! We are very thankful for all God has done!

We won’t have the majestic views we had in Colorado, but we will be very close to the beautiful beaches along the southwest Gulf coast, which are only about 5 minutes away. The community also has three swimming pools, and other cool attractions like a private lake and island, biking trails, sports courts, and a fitness center. It’s actually a gated neighborhood. I never thought I’d live in one of those, but in today’s world I appreciate the extra security for our kids. They also take care of all the landscaping, mowing, and pest control included in the HOA, which sounds good to me! I worked landscaping jobs and mowed lawns my whole life. After 8 1/2 years fighting Celiac Disease and Cachexia, and over 30 years mowing lawns, I’m more than happy to let someone else do it.

This was our first choice neighborhood, but it is almost completely built and we were running out of lots to choose from that we could afford. We actually almost didn’t get in. We wanted this lot back in July when we got here, but the sale of our house hadn’t closed yet, so we didn’t have the money to buy it. Someone else bought the lot while we were waiting, so we thought the door was closed. We were looking at buying the land right next to the rental house we are in now, but a few weeks later the agent from the neighborhood let us know the lot was back on the market. By that time, we had sold our home in Colorado, so we were able to buy the lot right away.

It always amazes me how God works things out. We gave it up to Him and He ended up giving it back! The Lord had this piece of property picked out just for us, and this is where we were meant to be. Remember this, nothing can stop God’s plan for your life. Our job as believers is to trust and follow Him. He will always be faithful to us and He will always work it out in His time and will!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

A fresh start with a new home in a new state is amazing, but what we all truly want is a fresh start for our soul. There is only One who can offer you that, and His Name is Jesus. Forgiveness of sins and eternal life is the most precious fresh start of all! If you are seeking peace and a new beginning, I recommend believing in Jesus and stepping into those beautiful plans He has for you! There is no better clean slate than the salvation of your soul!

“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

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

Romans 6:23

When you come to Jesus, He forgives and cleanses your sins and He makes you a new creation! Just like a caterpillar becoming a beautiful butterfly, you are reborn and made new as a child of God! The Lord fills you with His Holy Spirit and adopts you as His own! That fresh start continues through your walk with God day by day as you grow and mature in Christ, and He will never leave you nor forsake you!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

2 Corinthians 5:17

“This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Romans 3:22-24

“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

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”

Jesus speaking in John 10:27-30

Do you need a fresh start in your life? Do you want to be forgiven and free?! Come to Jesus today! He loves you and He wants to give you eternal life!

“In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”

John 3:3

“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

Jesus speaking in John 7:38

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Jesus speaking in Acts 1:8

There is only one way to be born again, and that Way is to believe in Jesus Christ! The Holy Spirit is the living water flowing within those who believe in Jesus! We must be born again in the power of the Holy Spirit to see the Kingdom!

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

John 14:6

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

Acts 4:12

“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.”

Ephesians 1:13-14

Jesus is the original fresh start! He is the firstborn over all creation and all things were made through Him! He is the only One who died to forgive our sins and reconcile us with God; our only Lord and Savior! Come to Jesus, and let Him make you brand new!

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.”

Colossians 1:15-20

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.”

Romans 5:1-2

Jesus Christ is Lord!

Grace and peace to you all!

Remembering 9/11 In 2020

Photo credit: Trump Administration, 9-11-2020

Today is Patriot Day here in America. It has been 19 years since the attacks of September 11, 2001. It seems so far removed from us today, especially for the younger generation who did not live through it. For those of us who did, the memories and emotions of that day are still close in our minds and hearts, and we will never forget.

That terrible day and the months that followed felt a lot like the current attack we are under with the virus. People were afraid, sad, angry, and uncertain of the future. But we also came together as a people, as one country, and we lifted each other up! It didn’t matter what color you were. Brave men and women of all colors came together and became heroes to save others. We helped each other, we loved each other, and we all stood together as Americans, and that is exactly what we need to do right now amidst the chaos of 2020. This post is in honor of the 2,977 brothers and sisters we lost on 9/11. May we all stand together as one America in remembrance of them!

My prayers are with all the families who lost those they love. May the Lord comfort your hearts today and always. We will remember them in our hearts forever. Grace and peace to all your families.

There were so many heroes that day. So much courage in the face of fear and death! From every day citizens, cops, and firefighters who ran into the burning towers to save lives to the men who fought back on Flight 93, our country fought back hard and we faced the threat with bravery and honor!

I have researched and written for many years about the truth regarding 9/11 and how it is tied to the globalist cabal, but I will not get into that in depth this year. Just know that the official government narrative is a lie. The same new world order traitors that committed the heinous crime of 9/11 are the same traitors who are currently using Covid as a coup against America and national sovereignty worldwide. Whether it is flying planes into buildings or releasing a deadly virus, their goal is the same, to enslave us all in their one world government. If you would like to know more about the truth regarding 9/11 and the NWO, please read my post from last year titled, “Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth.”

We must stand as one nation and face the current threat together! Don’t listen to the race baiting lies of the NWO controlled media! They want our country divided! They want us to tear each other apart! We must love each other again like we did on 9/11! It doesn’t matter what color you are; we are all Americans!

My heart and prayers are with our country and all the families. May the Lord pour out His Holy Spirit on us all and bring great healing through our nation!

Grace and peace to America! Grace and peace to you all!

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Jesus speaking in John 13:34-35

People Are Done With Masks

Scrolling through Twitter right before bed isn’t always a good idea, but last night I’m glad I did. It was very encouraging to see video after video of people protesting the masks all around the world. I loved the one of people in Greece throwing their masks in a big pile in a public square and stomping on them. I cheered for that one! Then there was one from California that had me in tears I was laughing so hard! It was almost midnight and I just laughed and laughed! It was very refreshing after fighting so hard to get the truth out. People are waking up and people are totally done with the masks!

Real quick before I get into that, I hope this post works right. Many of us here on WordPress do not like the new block editor. I tried the classic block, but it will not recognize proper double spacing after each sentence. It changes it to a single space after each sentence, which makes the paragraphs look crowded. I contacted support, but they said they couldn’t fix it. They recommended the Preformatted block because that should save it the way you type it, but that was weird and didn’t look right. The Paragraph block is what I am using now and have been on my last few posts. It also changes the double spacing to single after I publish it. I don’t understand why a blogging company would change their platform to a system that doesn’t understand proper writing, but they did.

I am a writer and a preacher. I just want to write and preach. I don’t want to mess with all these ridiculous blocks that don’t work right, so I just start typing on a blank sheet. Sorry if the paragraphs are single spaced after each sentence. I do understand proper spacing. WordPress messed up their platform. It almost makes me want to leave WordPress, but I’ve been on here for two years now and have written over 500 blog posts. Never had a problem with spacing or anything before. Hopefully they fix the spacing issue soon. Hang in there fellow bloggers!

Okay, so about that hilarious video. Here it is. This is exactly how I feel about the masks! God bless this guy for the peaceful and hilarious way he protests! I hope the video works, enjoy!

Do you see what I mean?! People have had enough! A Patriot doctor put out a warning on Twitter yesterday that wearing masks for prolonged periods of time is dangerous to our health. I mean really, people, duh! Inhibiting the flow of oxygen into your lungs and building up carbon dioxide in your lungs is not good for our bodies, especially for our kids and seniors!

Nobody can make us do something that is dangerous to our health! The word “mandatory” does not apply to masks, or vaccines, or Digital ID microchips, or anything else they want to force on us! THEY DO NOT OWN US! THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO DOMINATE US! THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO DOMINATE OUR CHILDREN! WE ARE NOT THEIR SLAVES!

We all must take a stand and stop living in fear before we lose all of our freedoms to a small band of psychotic liberal tyrants. That guy at Disneyland made my day yesterday and it felt so good to laugh that hard! He showed us all just how ridiculous these masks truly are!

We already know they lied to us about the death rates! Go live your lives and be free! No more lies! No more fear! No more tyranny! Live in the truth, be brave in the truth, and trust in God! Masks are a mind control device and a muzzle, and we will not be enslaved or silenced! I will not submit to the new world order! JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, and I bow to Him alone!!!

“Who, being in very nature God,

did not consider equality with God

something to be grasped,

but made himself nothing,

taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a

man,

he humbled himself

and became obedient to death–

even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the

highest place

and gave him the name that is above

every name,

that at the name of Jesus every knee

should bow,

in heaven and on earth and under

the earth,

and every tongue confess that Jesus

Christ is Lord,

to the glory of God the Father.”

Philippians 2:6-11

Grace and peace to you all!

Free In Florida

Photo by Ryan, Manasota Beach, Labor Day 2020

Yesterday was Labor Day here in America. Our family had a beautiful day relaxing at Manasota Beach off Manasota Key. White sand beaches, calm waters, and beautiful sunny blue skies are just what we needed. In many states, people are still believing the lies of the liberal media and cowering in fear behind masks and closed doors. For the most part, that is going on in liberal states and cities. Here in Florida, we are living free because we live in a conservative state that lives in the truth. We have a conservative Governor who also lives in the truth, and he will not use a virus as a coup against America. He respects our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our God given freedom, and most importantly, he loves and respects God. Yep, down here in Florida, we are living our lives in freedom and peace as all Americans should.

More and more truth is coming out about the real number of deaths due to Covid, and people are waking up to the reality that we were lied to big time! I hope you are paying attention. I tried to tell everyone. This is no pandemic. It never was. This is an attack on humanity at the hands of some very sick people. The disease is real. The fearmongering regarding how fast it was spreading and how many died were all lies. The masks, social distancing, fear, hysteria, paranoia, and the economy crushing lockdowns were all based on lies!

The lying globalist CDC just admitted that only 6% of the thousands they said died from Covid actually died from Covid. That’s right, 94% died from other causes, NOT COVID! More states are releasing their true numbers every day and they are very low. People finally realize now that the CDC, the WHO, and crazy Dr. Fauci are all liars and they lied to us because they are all controlled by the globalists. The globalists, that is the ones that speak of their new world order, want a one world government based on communism. They are using this virus as the Trojan horse to finally achieve that goal, and they are violently frothing at the mouth to get it done in 2020.

The globalists destroy national sovereignty worldwide because they want to rule the world. They are desperately and violently trying to overthrow America because we are the last place of true freedom on earth. The virus, along with violence from their Marxist gangs known as Antifa and BLM, are being used as weapons to take our freedoms, destroy our economy, and dominate us into submission to the new world order. Their plan is: mandatory masks leads to mandatory vaccines leads to mandatory Digital ID microchip (a.k.a. the mark of the beast) implanted in you and your children. Get it?! Yeah, it’s scary, it’s real, it’s happening in our time, and you better believe in Jesus because He is our only hope for salvation!

“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

Those of us who believe in Jesus are filled with the Holy Spirit and we see through their lies. The Lord already warned us a long time ago that a one world government was coming and it will be ruled by the antichrist who will be indwelt by the evil one himself. A time of great tribulation is coming upon the earth. We don’t know the times or dates of the end, but we see the reality of fulfilled prophecies all around us. We must fight the lies of the evil one and live in the truth! We must warn people!

“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.”

Revelation 13:16-17

Throw off the chains of this great lie of 2020 they are enslaving humanity with! Seek the truth, speak the truth, and live in the truth! We had an amazing time yesterday enjoying the beach with our fellow Americans. Everyone was calm and happy and respectful, and we are not dying from the phony Covid pandemic…because it doesn’t exist!

We moved all the way from Colorado to Florida, drove through 5 states in 3 days, walked in and out of gas stations and Walmarts, stayed in two hotels, talked with real estate people, talked with movers and delivery guys in our home, and we moved into a new community, and we are alive and well! I live in the truth, not lies. I live in faith, not fear! Yes, I will trust in Jesus and move all the way across country even during a time of great turmoil and fear, then chill at the beach in freedom and peace. I told you I was serious about living free. Serious enough to leave the state I love and grew up in, and follow Jesus all the way to freedom in Florida! No liberal tyrant Governor is going to enslave me or my family! You hear that, Polis?! I’m not paying your high taxes or dealing with your evil liberal insanity anymore!

It was awesome chilling at Manasota Key yesterday! We even saw a dolphin swimming close to the beach! Our kids were in the water at the same time just about 50 yards away from it. It was beautiful to watch it swim so peacefully like they do. You are not going to see a dolphin if you are cowering at home in fear. Don’t let lies hold you in bondage to fear! That is not from the Lord! His perfect love drives out fear, and He wants us to live in the truth. The truth is, Covid is way less lethal than we were told, it is being used to violently usher in the new world order, and all of this madness needs to stop right now! The flu kills more people every year, so knock it off with the fear and the ridiculous masks and take back your God given freedom!

Jesus does not want us to be enslaved by fear. He does not want us to live our lives based on lies. Do not give up your lives and freedom to a small handful of tyrants who want to dominate and control you! Fight back against this attack on America and the whole world! Fight back with the truth!

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Jesus speaking in John 8:32

Grace and peace to you all!

So Many Conversations

American flag

Have you ever heard the expression, “This isn’t my first rodeo”? It is an American phrase to let people know you are experienced at something and it isn’t your first time doing the task at hand. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in October of 1996 at the age of 18. The Lord gave me the gift of evangelism, and He sent me immediately into discipleship training and evangelism with Campus Crusade for Christ. I preached all four years in college and I have been preaching the Gospel ever since. Actually coming up on 24 years next month. I’m 42 now. Can you imagine how many conversations the Lord has led me through in that time? To say the least, preaching here on WordPress is not my first rodeo.

I have met so many people in that 24 years of preaching and I have had so many interesting, challenging, difficult, heart breaking, and uplifting conversations with people from all over the world. All of the preaching I did back in the 90s and early 2000s was face to face. Just good old fashioned feet to pavement evangelism, and it was awesome. Reaching out to people and building relationships in college was one of the best times of my life. We saw so many come to Christ! The mission trips doing street ministry in Denver are some of my favorite memories. Crawling up under downtown street bridges at midnight to minister to homeless men is a humbling experience that gives you a front row view to the heart of God. I will never forget those times.

In our time now, most preaching and everything else is done online. I’ve spent the last 2 years here on WordPress and my book has been on Amazon for 2.5 years. Over 2 years in the wilds of Twitter too and about a month on Parler (but I’m locked out of that for now). Before this I was on the Disqus forums for about 5 years. I have talked with all kinds of people young and old across all cultures and boundaries. Most are fairly civil and nice, and some have even become good friends. Then there are the hateful ones and the antagonistic fight starters and false preachers and the legalistic hypocritical judgmental finger pointers and, well, you get the point. Whatever personality type or beliefs (or lack of belief) exist in this world, chances are I have encountered them in over two decades of preaching and ministering to people.

All the glory goes to God for all He has done in my life. I am just letting you know what He has done. I’ve been on the battlefield for a long time. I have experienced intense spiritual warfare. I am gritty. I am a warrior. I am one of God’s old soldiers He can rely on. My face is set like flint against this world and all the sin in it. I long for His return and cry out for it! I submit myself to His will and pray that He will use me to glorify His Name. I pray both my life and my death bring glory to His Name! I am Yours, Lord!

My preaching style is going to ruffle feathers at times. Good. Let God open hearts and minds to the truth and set people free with bold preaching! If you are a preacher, then preach the truth about all things! Do not be afraid to speak the truth and do not be ashamed!

I recently ruffled some feathers in my last post about being fed up with 2020. I received one comment in particular from a man who claims to be a Christian. He even claimed to be my brother in Christ and we once shared fellowship. His comments have been blocked from being on my blog for a long time now, so I found his comment in my trash folder…where it belongs. I already rebuked him once and told him to leave me alone. Guess he just can’t resist sticking his pointing finger in my face one more time.

I am not going to waste my time fighting with some Canadian socialist who loves listening to the lies of the liberal American mainstream media and loves repeating those lies. You keep believing those lies, bud, and I’ll just keep blocking your hypocritical judgmental comments. I will answer your question though. Who am I representing? I am an Ambassador for Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, the One and Only True King of all creation, to whom every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Hope that answers your question.

I also hope you stop believing liberal lies about America, Trump, and Patriot Americans, and stop spreading those lies and hatred on your blog. You sure are a hypocrite with all that hate you have for Americans, especially the ones who love America. You need to turn off your TV, man, especially CNN! They are run by the left and you are being lied to! They are running a psychological operation through the media to attempt overthrowing our Republic. Wake up from your socialist Canadian stupor and realize your country has already been taken by the globalists and we are not going to let them take ours! We must resist the coming one world government they are building for the evil one! If you truly are a Christian, you would know that.

I will keep preaching boldly, whether legalistic hypocrites like you like it or not. Like I said months ago, stay off my blog if you don’t like my bold preaching. Also, I will always defend my family and that includes getting physical with a violent attacker if I have to. Be a coward if you want to. I love my wife and kids and I protect them. It’s not violence, it’s love. Violent attackers are violent. Those who stand up to them and stop them are loving and brave!

Go read Romans 13:1-7. God will punish the wrongdoers. That is why we have our brave police officers! Thank God for brave men who will stand up for people and fight evil. All men need to love and protect our families that way! If you don’t like it, take it up with God because you are not going to change my mind and I’m not backing down from loving and protecting my wife and kids.

It is the violent leftist socialists in my country who are causing mayhem, violence, and destruction, and the media pushes their lying leftist propaganda 24/7 365 days per year in order to spread that mayhem, violence, and destruction through our country! You, sir, don’t know what you are talking about when it comes to America. You are not my friend. You are not my family. You are a hateful bitter old leftist Canadian who pretends to be a Christian while you point your hateful finger at American Christians. Might want to take a long look at yourself, sir, and get your finger out of my face while you’re at it too. Find something better to do than trolling WordPress for bold on fire preachers you love to hate.

Praying the Lord heals your heart of all the hate you have for Americans who love their country. Keep your ignorant comments to yourself. Real Americans don’t care what you think. Bow to the globalists if you want to and parrot their lies to your demise. We are going to stand up and fight back against the new world order and their communist one world government and we will show the world that we are free men!

Jesus Christ is coming back soon, and I have my eyes fixed on Him. We are all sinful and we all need a Savior. Politics will not save anyone. I know this. I talk about it because we must fight for righteousness during our time and we must resist the evil one and his government. Politics is part of that. If you can’t see by now how evil and violent the Democrat left has become, then you must be listening to and believing the lies of the media. America is under attack, and it’s not Trump or those who support him and our great country attacking it. Lunatic Marxist terrorist gangs known as Antifa and BLM are the ones doing that! We are defending it! We are fighting for the soul of our nation!

I love my country with all my heart! I love as Jesus commanded me to do and I am ready to lay down my life for my family and my country. That is how much I love my neighbors! Love each other and don’t let anybody hurt your family or force any mandatory vaccines or digital ID microchips on you! The times are at hand and we must stand up and speak the truth. We must warn people and fight the good fight! Those conversations are not easy, but the Lord will always give us strength to accomplish what He has called us to do.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Jesus speaking in Acts 1:8

Be brave! The Lord is with us and we have His powerful Holy Spirit inside of us! Fulfill the Great Commission and be ready for His return!

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20

Grace and peace to Democrats and socialists who hate me. I don’t hate you. I hate the sin of your evil agenda to enslave our country. I pray for you. Jesus loves you and He died for you too. He died to set us all free from sin and death! Communism has never worked anywhere on earth. It is a violent boot to the human face that leaves poverty, death, and destruction in its wake. It is based on hatred for God and hatred for all mankind, and it will never bring peace or prosperity to anyone. You are already seeing what their socialist class warfare propaganda has done to our country, and it is horrific! Come to Jesus and receive His grace, mercy, and forgiveness before it’s too late! Stand up for righteousness and glorify God!

Grace and peace to you all!

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”

Romans 3:23

“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 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

Fed Up 2020

20200726_111314

Hello friends and family. I hope this blog post finds you all well. This post will be a bit different. This is just me talking with my friends and family in the living room and being honest and blunt like I always am. I am fed up with some things and I’m going to talk about it straight.

Real quick, WordPress recently changed their entire platform to something called the block editor. This is my first time using the new blogging format (using the classic block), so hope this works out well. I’m not a big fan of it so far, especially since I’ve spent the last 2 years blogging on the old platform.

We have lived in Florida for a little over one month now. It has been a blessing, but it has not been without challenges or spiritual warfare. Just the other morning, on the same day of the closing on the sale of our home in Colorado, I logged in to my credit card and there were fraudulent charges (again) that had been made online somewhere by some internet criminal. Many of you know, the second day we arrived here just 4 weeks ago, my wallet was stolen and the guy went on a massive shopping spree with my card. He is in jail now by the way. By the time they got the warrant, he was already in jail for something else. Anyway, it was horrible seeing more fraudulent charges on my card just a few weeks later and I just about lost it!

It’s all worked out, yet again, but it shook me up. Seriously, what are the chances of being robbed twice in one month? It’s ridiculous! It is not a good feeling and I appreciate prayers of protection for me and my family. It is definitely spiritual warfare.

My wife and daughter were just at Walmart the other day and my wife had her mask down for a moment. As she walked by the check out section, some big tall guy (my wife said he was at least 6’3″) from New York City yelled at her, “The mask only works if it’s on your face!” in his arrogant and boisterous New York City accent. I’ll tell you what folks, I didn’t move down here to Florida to deal with some mouthy arrogant New York City liberal. We left Colorado because of what liberals from California, Seattle, and Portland did to our beautiful state, but even there we were never yelled at like that.

I am loving and forgiving in the Name of Jesus, but that guy is lucky I wasn’t there to defend my wife. Real tough guy picking on a woman with her daughter. I would have told him to shut his mouth and get right with Jesus. I also probably would have let him know that his fear doesn’t limit my freedom and I would have said a few words about how stupid it is he believes Cuomo’s lies…and hopefully I wouldn’t have to get rough. Word of advice, don’t pick on a man’s wife and kids. You won’t like how the man responds.

I am beyond fed up with all of this virus bull crap! It is so in your face political it is nauseating! Wake up! The masks are mind control pushed by liberal psychos trying to force their socialist new world order on you! You want to wear a mask, go wear one! If you don’t want to wear a mask, don’t wear one. But if you wear a mask, don’t go acting all rude and crazy yelling at total strangers in public! It is threatening and aggressive to people and you might find yourself on the wrong end of a husband’s desire to protect his wife and kids.

I love Jesus, but I will punch you right in your face if you threaten me or my family with violence. I can preach after the threat is stopped. Savvy? Yelling and mouthing off at someone in public can lead to violence. If someone is yelling at me or my family, then I will prepare to defend myself and my family in case that strange person gets violent. I’m not putting up with this crap anymore people. I love God, I love my family, and I love my country and I have had enough with the liberals and their wickedness and violence! For crying out loud, we moved all the way down to Florida because of what has happened to our country!

I’m Conservative, I’m a Christian, and I’m Trump2020 all day in your face and I will fight back! You angry liberals up in NYC should stay out of Florida and keep your mouths shut! Your Governor is a joke trying to blame DeSantis for Covid rates in NYC! Cuomo is just using DeSantis as a scapegoat because he doesn’t want people focusing on the fact he killed thousands of seniors in nursing homes with his mandate to put Covid patients in nursing homes! If Cuomo wants to blame somebody, he needs only to look in the mirror. We don’t need you liberals messing up Florida like you did NYC and Colorado and California, and everywhere else you go. You will never make this a socialist country and we Patriots will be here to crush every violent Marxist fit you throw!

Don’t come down here to Florida mouthing off acting like some tough guy. You New Yorkers stand out like a sore thumb down here with your loud mouths and rude attitudes. You’re not tough like you think you are. You are pathetic and there are plenty of good old boys down here who are more than willing to prove you wrong and shut your filthy liberal mouths up and send you back to NYC with your tail between your legs. We are sick of your violence and hatred and it ends in 2020! TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!

I guarantee you that guy wouldn’t have been mouthing off at my wife like that if I had been there. I’m 6’1″ and even after Celiac I would have gone toe to toe with that liberal coward. Nobody is mouthing off at my wife like that, mask or no mask. It’s sickening what the violent anti-American leftist media propaganda has done to this country. I have been fed up with their liberal brainwashing crap for a very long time, and I will speak bold truth about it… and I don’t care if you don’t like it, so don’t waste my time about my tone. The godless horde of democrats started this war and they wanted this fight. We Patriots are just here to finish it! Those socialist liberal traitors will be conquered very soon!

By the way, I am also locked out of my Parler account. That is something else that happened along with all the other fun stuff mentioned here. If you have tried to contact me on Parler and I haven’t responded, that’s why.

I got a new cell phone number recently and that’s the problem. I was logged out of Parler when the number changed and now I can’t log in because Parler is using the old phone number to send me the log in code by text. I have contacted support and they said I need to provide my username, but I don’t have one. Parler’s log in process uses an email or phone number and a password to log in. I never had a username. It is ridiculous. Parler support isn’t helping even though I am emailing them from the email on file and I gave them the correct old phone number. So, I guess I am eternally locked out of my Parler account. Oh well, I’m not making another one.

I am just fed up with all of it. Social media, Covid, masks, raving lunatic liberals throwing fits they call revolutions. I’ve had enough. Thinking about taking a long break. Take a stand people before we lose our country to liberal madness. Fight back with the truth and don’t be scared to speak it! Its now or never.

We will definitely be heading back to the beach soon, but not until Laura and Marco are done roaring through the Gulf. We are okay down here along the southwest coast. Just getting some rain and lightning on our side, which happens every day anyway. We are praying for all those in the path of the storms!

I love this great country and I am praying that God gives the God fearing Patriots who love Him great victory over those who spread immorality and violence like a plague through our nation! May the Lord spread revival and healing, and bring justice to all lawlessness!

Grace and peace

“Let a righteous man strike me–it is a

kindness;

let him rebuke me–it is oil on my

head.

My head will not refuse it.

Yet my prayer is ever against the deeds

of evildoers;

their rulers will be thrown down

from the cliffs,

and the wicked will learn that my

words were well spoken.”

2 Years Blogging For Jesus

Hello everyone and God bless you all!  We are still doing great in Florida!  We even had our first alligator visit in the canal behind our rental house yesterday!  More on that later though because today is August 10th, 2020.  Two years ago today, the Lord called me to start this blog and I followed His leading.  It has been an amazing two years and a lot has happened in that time!  Thank you to everyone who has supported me, challenged me, prayed for me and my family, and stuck by me!  There are 1,401 souls in 172 countries around the world reading my blog, and I appreciate and pray for each and every one of you!  My prayer for this blog is that it will be a blessing and Jesus uses it to draw people to Himself, amen!

Screenshot_2020-08-10 Following ‹ Reader — WordPress com

This blog exists to bring glory to His Holy Name by preaching the soul saving truth of the Gospel and His Holy Word to the nations.  I am just one of His servants and it is my calling to dispense the gift of evangelism He gave me, and share my very strange testimony with the world.  Part of that calling is preaching His truth to every part of society, including societal and political issues as well.  If you are new to my blog, know that I cover just about every topic you can think of regarding the Bible and life, and no topic is off the table.  I will preach His truth to it all unashamed with a boldness that offends people at times, even Christians.  I don’t mean to be offensive, but I do mean to be bold and courageous for Jesus and I don’t back down.

The Lord also uses me to field questions from the various emails I receive from around the world.  He does the same with me on Twitter and Parler, although I don’t use my Twitter account much anymore as I moved over to Parler in June.  I enjoy chatting with people and it is a blessing to be able to share the discipleship training and Biblical knowledge that the Lord gave me.  If you ever have questions or need prayer, just let me know.  I will email you back and I will answer you straight, and help with a heart full of compassion and love.  Freely I received the gifts the Lord gave me, freely I give.

If you have never heard my testimony or read my book, here is the quick version.  When I was in 8th grade back in 1991, my family moved to Illinois.  We ended up moving into a house that was possessed by a demon.  We were not Christians back then and I did not grow up going to church.  The demon caused terrifying things to happen in the house, even manifesting itself to my sister, kicking our dog, and making a breathing noise in my ear.  The nightmare lasted the entire 4 years I was in High School.

When I went to college, I met a bunch of great Christians who became my best friends.  I ended up accepting Jesus in October of 1996 at the age of 18.  When I went home that Christmas break, I rebuked the demon out of our house in the Name of Jesus.  The demon left, and my whole family ended up getting saved.

In the summer of 1998, I had two phenomenal encounters with angels that further changed my life.  In the first encounter, I was rescued by an angel and carried away from a man who was chasing me with a knife on the streets of Denver.  In the second encounter, an angel appeared to me while I was sitting in a living room with my two friends.  It told me, “God has something for you to do,” and I simply said, “Okay.”  After that, my friends and I left the house, drove down the street, and ended up helping a woman who was in danger.

Then, if that wasn’t enough, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease on 1-6-2012.  On 4-28-2012, I went into anaphylaxis and then anaphylactic shock from eating a sandwich with oat bread for lunch that day.  I suffered torturous pain all that day, then that night I stopped breathing.  Just before I died, I cried out, “Help me, Jesus!!!”  I left my body in the Spirit and I was with Jesus in perfect peace where there was absolutely no pain.  I did not see Him, but He spoke to me and said, “It’s okay.”  Moments later, He put me back in my body in the powerful wind of the Holy Spirit and I came back to life.  My wife was praying next to my lifeless body and she witnessed the wind come into my mouth and raise me back to life!  Jesus Christ is Lord!!!  Thank You Jesus!!!

If you would like to read more about my testimony and how to come to know Jesus, please read:

Remember that time when…

or check out my book “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life” on Amazon.  It is free on Kindle Unlimited.  I can also buy the ebook version and give them away for free for residents of the United States.  If you are in the United States and you would like a free ebook copy, just email me through my contact page and I will send you one directly from Amazon.

I don’t know why all these strange things have happened to me and my family, but I do know I am supposed to share it with the world.  Jesus Christ is alive!  Jesus Christ is Lord!  And Jesus Christ loves you!  These are truths I will preach until my very last breath, and I pray with all my heart that everyone reading this comes to know Jesus and His amazing love!

Wherever you are and whatever you do today, please take a moment to read this one very special and famous verse and consider what Jesus said with all your heart, mind, and soul.

“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, John 3:16

God loves you and He does not want you to perish!  He wants you to have eternal life, which is His most precious gift through faith in Jesus!  Salvation is a gift of God’s grace to all mankind, and it can only be obtained through faith in Jesus.  No human beings will ever enter Heaven by their own works.  No good works could ever save us.  We must have the Blood of Jesus covering our sins!  Nothing but the Blood of Jesus will ever save us.  We must have faith in Jesus.  Each and every one of us must be forgiven of our sins.

“This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.  There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Romans 3:22-24

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

You receive God’s gift of salvation by receiving Jesus Christ.  We all need a Savior and only Jesus can save us.  He is the only One who ever died for our sins to set us free from sin and death!

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

Acts 4:12

“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.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.  As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”  For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile–the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Romans 10:9-13

Come to Jesus and you will never be put to shame!  Your soul will be saved and you will inherit eternal life!  You will become a redeemed child of God with a soul full of peace!  Your sins will be forgiven and you will be filled with the Holy Spirit who will empower you to live a righteous life that pleases God!

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Jesus speaking in Acts 1:8

“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation.  Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.”

Ephesians 1:13-14

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such things there is no law.”

Galatians 5:22-23

Do you want to be forgiven?  Do you want to go to Heaven?  I hope you do, and I pray you come to the One who loves your soul!  Grace and peace to all those who are seeking truth!  You will find the answers you seek in Jesus!

Our move to Florida has been an amazing experience for our whole family, and we are at peace down here.  We have become even closer and we have grown in our relationship with Jesus individually and as a family.  God is still on the move and I have my eyes fixed on Him as we walk through the parted seas.  I have some updates to share in my next post.  We have been looking at neighborhoods and homes, but haven’t been finding any that fit yet.  God is up to something big though as He recently showed us that we might buy the lot of land right next to us here at the rental property and build our own home on it.  We are very excited to see what the Lord does and how He has us move forward!

We love the privacy and peace of the woods and canal! We are not too far from the Myakka River, so I tell the kids, “Behold, the glory of the Myakka!” God’s glory shines in His jungle creation just as much as it does in the Rockies. Praise God!

Once everything settles down from the move and the kids go back to school, I hope to get back to blogging on a daily basis.  I miss reading everyone’s blogs and chatting with all of you!  I’m not going anywhere.  Just real busy right now building a new life as the Lord leads us.  I am still just as excited to serve Jesus as I start my third year preaching on social media!

Here is a sneak peak at our new friend.  I named him Bubba.  He is at least 10 feet, but maybe 12.  What a beauty!

Yes, we really do have alligators in our backyards down here in Florida, especially if you back up to a canal!  We’re not in Colorado anymore, that’s for sure!  What an amazing life in a fascinating place, praise God!

“Praise the LORD.

Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,

who finds great delight in his

commands.”

Psalm 112:1

Always remember, Jesus loves you, He died for you, and He wants you to be in Heaven with Him forever!

Grace and peace to you all!

Tropical Paradise

Hello friends and family!  We made it to Florida safe and sound, praise God!  It has been an adventurous, challenging, and blessed week, and we are very glad to be living here!  What a beautiful tropical paradise!  Thank You Jesus!

A lot has happened since we left Colorado on July 19th.  It took us 32 hours in 3 days to get down here, but we made it.  We actually arrived on my birthday, which was fun.  I turned 42 the day we made it to Florida.  Very memorable birthday!

I have a bit of a story to tell you about the very next day, which was our first full day here.  We were shopping at the local Walmart that morning and we were in the electronics section.  I set my wallet and phone down to pick up a TV and put it in the cart, but I forgot to pick my wallet and phone back up afterwards.  Some guy ended up stealing both and he went on a $2,800 shopping spree with my credit card.  Thankfully, I was able to cancel the card and I am not responsible for the fraudulent charges.  I worked with the police and they already have a photo of him and his vehicle from a pawn shop, where he bought a $420 gold watch.  Please pray for that man.  I forgive him.  He caused a lot of panic and trouble, but I forgive him and I pray for him to see the error of his ways and come to Jesus.

I also had my debit card and Colorado driver’s license in my wallet.  He wasn’t able to charge anything to the debit.  I actually got my phone back because the guy threw it in a Lowe’s parking lot.  A Lowe’s employee’s wife found my phone and they helped us when my wife called my phone.  That is where we also met the police to file a report.  It was awesome getting my phone back, praise God!

It was quite a day and very frustrating.  I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to get my Florida driver’s license because my Colorado one was stolen, but God wasn’t going to let the evil one get away with that hit on me and my family.  The very next day we went to the DMV and they were so nice!  The people here are incredibly friendly and we love it.  The lady was able to look me up in the system and after showing her the requested personal documents, she issued me a Florida driver’s license!  We also got our license plate the same day (Florida only has a rear plate).  It was amazing after all we had been through the day before.  We are officially residents of Florida as of July 23rd, 2020!  Praise God!!!

God is truly amazing!  It has been a whirlwind of change, but through it all, He has guided us and been with us every step of the way.  Thank You Lord for your faithfulness, goodness, and love!  You truly are a God who works miracles and parts seas for your people!  You alone are God!!!

We absolutely love it here!  I love it more than I could have imagined!  The humidity isn’t bad at all.  It’s more of a temperate tropical moist air, and we get cool breezes from the Gulf of Mexico.  We are only 10 minutes from Venice beach!  It’s much different watching the weather channel now.  I have more in common weather wise with my brothers and sisters down in the Islands and South America, than I do with the majority of people in my country.  I’ve been listening to news this morning about Tropical Cyclone Nine in the Virgin Islands, and how it might hit Florida in a few days.  Praying for everyone in the path and that God would ease the storm.

We love the sunshine and rain, and the bugs aren’t too bad.  I had to do some damage control when we first moved in because it hadn’t been rented since April.  A bit of bug spray and a vacuum took care of it.  We did see our first palmetto bug, which was funny.  They are kind of cute and they sure are fast.  Our agent said they have wolf spiders the size of your hand here, so we hope to never see one of those.

The house and pool are beautiful.  We back right up to the edge of a canal right next to thick woods, so the privacy is great.  We have lizards and frogs everywhere, and the neighbors said they have seen alligators in the canal many times.  We won’t be spending too much time out there, but it sure is cool.  As most of you know, we are used to living with apex predators like mountain lions and bears, so gators are no big deal.

When we first got here, it was like landing on a different planet.  All the new sounds of bugs and animals and the wet tropical environment are fascinating.  Huge contrast from the dry mountainous region of Colorado.  We all love it and it’s great to see how happy my wife and kids are down here.  It truly shows me just how stressed out and over taxed we were in the Denver metro area.

We call this little guy Mr. Sticky Fingers. He likes to come see what’s going on in the morning.

We visited Venice beach a couple days ago and it was gorgeous.  The Gulf is so warm and calm and the people are friendly and chill.  The beaches are clean too.  It is such an amazing blessing to be so close to the ocean and beaches.  We are amazed that this is our home now and we are feeling more and more at home every day.

The Lord has already opened up doors to preach His Name, and we found out our neighbors are Christians too.  Nice older couple with grown kids and lots of grand kids.  We love how laid back everyone is here and we love the slower pace.  This place is very healing for our whole family.

We had some mover guys help us unload the pod yesterday, and the Lord opened a door to preach about the mark of the beast and how it all relates to what is going on in our time with mandatory vaccines leading to implantable microchips.  We also talked about guns and the great laws that support gun rights here.  It was an awesome conversation and after listening to me preach a bit, the one guy who knew the Word told me, “You are in the right place, man!”  I agree, perfect fit!  My heart is overjoyed to be here, praise God!

I am among people who love God, America, and freedom, and I love it!  There are still plenty of people here who don’t know the Lord and need to hear the Gospel (like the guy who robbed me), but it is very refreshing being in a community with a lot more believers.  Colorado will always be in my heart and it hurts to think about what the liberals have done to the state I love, grew up in, and spent 34 years of my life in, but it’s time to move forward into the new life God has for us and never look back.

I feel more free down here than I have in years, and the Lord’s plans for us are more than we could have asked or imagined.  We have our eyes fixed on Him as He leads us and we trust Him and His love for us.  God is good and His love endures forever, and don’t ever forget it!

Grace and peace to you all from sunny Florida!

Moving In God’s Power

IMG_7182

Hello friends and family, and God bless you all!  I finally have a chance to catch my breath from everything with the move and I wanted to share some more praise updates.  God continues to move in power as He makes the way for us to Florida!  We sold our home in only 3 days!  We had a total of only 8 showings and it ended up being the very first showing on Friday that made the offer.  We all signed the contract on Sunday, we already passed the inspection yesterday, and everything is moving forward covered in blessings!  God is so good!  Thank You Jesus!

Thank you to all of you who are praying for us!  It has been a challenging yet rewarding week with all the heavy lifting and cleaning, but we got it done in the power of the Holy Spirit, and except for some sore muscles, nobody got hurt.  The pod is almost totally packed and we have all the heavy stuff out of the house.  Just a few more days in Colorado, then we head southeast towards Oklahoma early Sunday morning.  We plan on driving through Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Mississippi, then travel along the gulf coast into Florida all the way down to Port Charlotte.

I’ll tell you what, even after all these years following the Lord, He never ceases to amaze me!  If something in your life is God’s will, absolutely nothing can stop God from accomplishing that purpose in your life.  If He makes a way for you, He will see it through to completion.  We still have to do our part and be ready to act and do what it takes to get there, but it will be God who blesses us with victory.

I am also amazed at how much strength and stamina the Lord gave me!  Even after 8 1/2 years of suffering Celiac, I was able to move way more than I thought I could.  Angels had to have been helping us because we moved some real heavy items without any trouble.  It still amazes me how we got our big couch out of the front doorway without breaking anything.  So glad that is done, praise God!

God also blessed selling and giving away a bunch of our stuff on Nextdoor, and we were able to clear out everything we wanted to part with.  I was even able to give my nice snowblower to one of the mover guys who helped us when we first started packing.  Many of you might remember that my snowblower broke a year or so ago.  It is only a few years old and everything is great with it, except the spark plug port needs to be drilled and tapped.  He is going to fix the spark plug port and use the snowblower for his snow shoveling business in the winter.  It was awesome to see how blessed he was by that.  The Lord also opened the door to share my faith with him and preach the Word a bit.  God is so good!  Always be ready to talk about Jesus and stand up for Him, even when you’re in the middle of a move!  You never know when God might use you!

It’s been such a busy week that I haven’t been keeping up with news or social media much, which actually has been kind of nice.  I’m sure everyone is still arguing about politics, Covid, masks, and social distancing, and I probably didn’t miss much.  It’s been refreshing to just focus on my family and spend time in God’s Word and prayer.  I recommend everyone turn off the news and stop listening to all the hatred, lies, and fear, and start loving each other like Jesus told us to.

Thank you all for your prayers!  We are excited for what God has planned for us and we know that He is in control of all of it.  I stand in awe of what God has done and I feel humbled and blessed to watch Him at work as He moves in power!  May His glorious will be done!

Grace and peace to you all!
