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

  1. So powerful, and I pray for our country. As well our president! We are in perilous times. Times I was taught of growing up, and did not know if I would see them in my lifetime. I always say no matter who is President, Jesus is our King. I am 46, and I just keep looking up for my redemption draws nye. Prayer is powerful, and as believers I can’t imagine walking out my front door daily without the full armor of Christ! Keep sharing! Keep being a disciple for Christ! That is what we are called to be! A light in the dark! Praise God for all His people who are spreading the truth. God bless you, and yours! 🙏🏻🤍

  2. How inspiring to read about your evangelism timeline, particularly with the homeless. These are tough times, but not the worst times. The finger pointing is ancient. I’m not sure people would do the same face to face though. The Internet brings out the worst in many of us.

    I choose to ignore attention-seeking attacks or say a little blessing. It’s just not worth it when people are hostile. It’s sad, actually – and their dark energy is hard to take. Their hatred will be their own ruin. And then, when they are weak, crushed and in need of a love they don’t know yet, they’ll have a chance to learn who God is. That’s when he will snatch them with his unfailing love. All in God’s good time.

  3. Amen! Ryan, you have been blessed as a bold and loving preacher and the souls you have saved and helped are countless, but God knows how many!!! Praise God we have Him and our loving Jesus always. It’s so sad there are so many lost souls that are misguided and it’s disturbing there are so many who are hateful. We have a duty, the will of the Holy Spirit to fight for what is good and righteous, and protect ourselves, loved ones, and our community. God is our strength, and, we will always be in His light as Christians. I pray for our country, and protection for our police, for our leaders and countrymen’s wisdom to keep America free forever! I receive much courage and hope from your words, Ryan. Thank you for all you do in sharing His good word! All glory to God. God bless our beautiful America. Love you, Mom
    John 14:27, (NIV) Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

  4. It’s horrifying that so many people have sold out to the Adversary’s plan of misery and enslavement, rather than to embrace God’s plan of happiness and redemption. There is no valid reason for malice and violence, and your call for repentance is justified, appropriate and timely.

    Our country’s founders were but fallible men, yet they sought from the Spirit of God the inspiration to bring forth a system of government by the people, within which each generation could work to improve itself and uplift others. The Almighty thus established our county to be a bastion of freedom, a refuge where his children could strive to overcome temptation and learn to do good with the guidance of the freely preached Word.

    I’m grateful to see your lighted candle on the candlestick of your blog, giving light unto us all in these dark and troubled times.

  5. I really enjoyed this, do you mind if I cut a piece out and post it to my facebook? I think it speaks so many more words than are written down. I will wait for your answer…”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?
