I just want to make it very clear to everyone in the whole world that I have never in my life claimed to be a prophet and I don’t have any fancy titles and I don’t use fancy phrases. I never went to seminary, and I am not a pastor. I have served Jesus since October of 1996 and I’m just me. I did receive four years of training in the Bible, discipleship, and evangelism through Campus Crusade for Christ when I was in college (’96-2000), and that solid foundation of training has been a blessing in preaching the Gospel and ministering to people in need. I am currently medically unemployed due to Celiac Disease and I don’t pretend to be anybody. I am nothing. Just dust and breath. A sinner saved by grace, and nothing more. I don’t pretend to be anything. I received salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Freely I have received, freely I give.

I have been open and honest about who I am and who I was before I knew Jesus. I have never hidden my “true nature” from anyone. I have been honest about my sinful nature and how God saved me. From the day I started this blog, I have been straightforward about my life and my faith. I have shared stories and pictures of my family. I have shared my struggles. I have preached the truth in love. I don’t have to hide from anyone. I am a redeemed child of God! Be careful who you judge and the kind of judgments that come out of your mouth. Calling someone a “false prophet” is very serious! I don’t know any prophets and I’m sure not one! I am just a man who God has called to preach the Gospel like He has with many Christians around the world. That’s it. I rebuke anyone in the Name of Jesus who calls me a prophet or false prophet! I am neither of those titles and I never will be!
I have never given myself a fancy title and I never received one from God or man. I don’t use fancy phrases. I just write how I write. If you feel that is fancy, well okay, I’m not trying to be. This is just how the Spirit writes through me. All the glory goes to God for everything that is written on this blog.
It is sad when Christians try to justify their sins and mistakes instead of repenting. It is hurtful when brothers in Christ lash out in sinful anger. For instance, cussing is cussing. The D word, The S word, The F word–yes, all of those are cussing and considered “unwholesome talk” (Ephesians 4:29), and if you don’t know that or if you use those words and try to justify using them, then you have a lot more to learn. As I said in my post titled Tongue of Fire, I struggled with bad language for a long time. I do not judge anyone. I leave that to the Lord and His Word. His Word is convicting enough! If you want to fight God over His Word, okay, enjoy that. You are going to lose that fight.
I am just a sinner saved by grace striving to live out His Word, and I pray for the strength to do it victoriously. Am I perfect? No, but I keep moving forward in His grace, forgiveness, and love every day, and so should you.
Grace and peace to you all!
