A Heartfelt Apology

Hello friends and family. This post has been on my heart for the last few weeks. The Lord has really been working on me, and He convicted my heart regarding several posts I wrote earlier this year. The Spirit moved so strongly in my heart, and the Lord’s hand was so heavy on me that I actually deleted about six of those posts. Why? Because they were written in anger and not in love. I am an ambassador for Jesus first, and I must not lose sight of that truth.

Most of you know that I am an ardent Patriot and I love my country. Sometimes my passion gets the better of me, and it can become sinful in anger. It saddens me to see how far my country has fallen into sin. I do not stand with anyone who agrees with the immorality and depravity that has become accepted in my country, and I will always stand up for righteousness. However, I must do this in love with gentleness and respect.

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.”

-Ephesians 4:15

“But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.”

-1 Peter 3:15-16

Although I am 42 and have followed the Lord for 24 years, I am still a younger man compared to many of you, I still have plenty to learn, and I respect those who are older than me who have given me advice. Thank you for praying for me and speaking the truth to me. I do not want to speak violently or harshly to anyone. I pray that my service to the Lord will please and honor Him, and I pray for the grace and strength to love my enemies.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

-Jesus speaking in Matthew 5:43-48

My country is being destroyed by those who hate God and love wickedness. I want you all to know that I don’t hate democrats or unbelievers. I stand against the evil in this country and I will always speak the truth, but again, I must do so in love. I will always protect my family, but I don’t want to hurt anyone. I hate violence and fighting. I have ever since I was a kid. My heart is to be a peacemaker, but sometimes when I speak it is for war. I understand how King David felt. Please forgive me for times I have spoken harshly against my enemies. I will always speak the truth boldly, but it does not glorify the Lord to speak in anger.

“Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they will be called sons of God.”

-Jesus speaking in Matthew 5:9

My prayer for many years now has been for the Lord to spread revival in my country and save many souls. I truly pray that those who hate God would see the error of their ways and turn to repentance. If our country continues down the path of immorality and wickedness, it will be destroyed.

I read an excellent post today that was written by my friend and brother in Christ, David Ettinger. It is regarding America’s role in end times prophecy, and I completely agree with everything he wrote. You can read his post here:

America’s Role in End-Times Prophecy

Someday, all the armies of the world will come against Israel, and that includes America. That is hard to imagine right now because America has been a strong supporter of Israel for a very long time. At some point in the end, that will change drastically. America will only be blessed if we honor God. The destruction we are seeing in our country today is due to our country turning away from God. Sadly, the majority of Americans have turned against God in open rebellion against His Holy Word.

Abortion and the acceptance of homosexuality and the destruction of God’s design for gender are sins that are detestable to God. Our nation will not be blessed continuing down that wicked path. If America turns against Israel in the near future, that will be the final nail in the coffin. Our country must repent, or our country will not stand. Blessing, grace, and peace be upon Israel!

I am very thankful that God gave us a chance to fight back with a most unlikely man as President. Trump has done all he could do, but he is surrounded by traitors on all sides in every branch of our government. There is a great push for socialism in this country, and it disgusts me. I will continue to stand against communism, socialism, and the new world order globalists who are serving the evil one. As believers in Christ, we must understand that God has a will and the prophecies in His Holy Word will eventually be fulfilled. It can be distressing to see the destruction in the fulfillment of those prophecies, but these things must happen for Jesus to return, and we have great hope in our redemption in Christ.

We must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. I fought the good fight hard in this civil war, and I will continue to stand firm in Christ, preach the truth, and expose the darkness. Even through all my support of Trump, my hope was never in him. My hope is in Christ alone. God gave us a reprieve from the madness that is overtaking our country. It has been inspiring and encouraging to see millions of my fellow American Patriots stand up for righteousness, and we must never give up. No matter what happens in our country, we must always stand up for righteousness to our very last breath!

“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

-Ephesians 5:11

We know this election was stolen right before our eyes, and it appears that the traitors will be successful. If they are, do not lose heart! God is still in control and He has a purpose in all of this. If you do not know Jesus, please come to Him today! Prophecies are being fulfilled and He is coming soon!

Please do not be left behind. You will not want to be here during the coming Tribulation of God’s wrath! God is grace and mercy. He is also truth and justice, and He will cleanse the earth of all wickedness and evil. Repent and receive Jesus before it is too late! Jesus is our only hope!

“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

I am praying with all my heart that God will give us more time, and many will come to Christ. I also pray for wisdom and discernment to endure these times in a way that honors God. Those of us who know Jesus do not need to be afraid. No matter what happens in our country and in this world, God will never leave us nor forsake us. His will and purpose will be accomplished, and we will see Jesus in all His glory very soon! May God’s grace be with America and all the nations of the world, and may many find forgiveness and peace in Jesus!

Grace and peace to you all!

  1. God bless you Ryan! Thank you for showing us your heart for Jesus and America! “Righteousness exalts a nation” (Proverbs 14:34), and I pray that all Americans repent and return to the Holy Bible, the Word and the Spirit of God, heeding the trumpets and returning to God our Father through Jesus the Christ, the Messiah, the King of kings and Lord of lords AND we get four more years to expose the corruption, fraud, stealing, killing and destroying so to drain the swamp AND more time to bring the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, the likeness of God (2 Cor 4:4) to more and more people before its too late! God our Father and his Christ get all our thanks and honor and glory, now and is to come!

  2. I do agree with you. It’s hard to watch people follow other people instead of God. You shouldn’t apologize how you feel when you want everyone to feel the way you do about God. Believe me there is hope. Long time ago I was one of those who did not want to follow God but here I am 100% all in. Sometimes you have to be at your lowest of lows to reach out. God bless you.

    1. Thank you, Sandy. I use to hate God and Christians before I accepted Jesus. I am so thankful He had mercy on me. I don’t deserve His mercy and grace. I truly pray for revival, and many more get saved. God bless you!

  3. That you listened to what God was putting on your heart is another reason that you continue to please Him, Ryan. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world….Let your light so shine before others, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven”
    Matthew 5:14, 16). God knows your heart and the passion he has given you. Amazing how God was telling you, “With love, Ryan, and not in anger”, God was giving you what you needed as he heals you. Love you so much, Mom

  4. Hi Ryan, thank you for the link to my blog. Regarding your sentiments at the beginning of this blog, apologizing for past wrongs is a difficult thing to do, but is also a great demonstration of growth in Christ. How do I know this? Because I’m 20 years older than you and have had to go on the “apologizing campaign trail” many more time than I care to admit!

    I agree, as well, that it is difficult to see our country being destroyed from within, but I believe we can file it all away under the category of “God’s permissive will.” As believers, we know where we are heading, and it is glorious, but the path to get there is going to be difficult. You perfectly summed up my sentiments in the summary of your post: “May God’s grace be with America and all the nations of the world, and may many find forgiveness and peace in Jesus!”

    Amen, and peace upon you, Ryan!

  5. God bless you, Ryan! God honors humility through self-reflection in His word and transparency before the saints. God honors all that you do for the kingdom and we, your readers, are greatly blessed also. Know that bringing to light our shortcomings opens the heavens for mercy and grace to flow. Great is your reward, brother! Thank you for fighting for the treasured honor of our great “Nation Under God,” standing up for truth, and defending the precious gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ! God bless you and your ministry here!

  6. We are all human and far from perfect. Yet, by the gift of Grace he loves us unconditionally! I seek His will in all that I do and pray for our country that His will…will prevail! Blessings to you and your family for 2021!!

  7. Excellent words, I always admire your authenticity!! Humility stinks when we focus on the (me, me, me) side of it BUT the positivity totally outweighs any negative. God gives us a huge opportunity to grow in those times!!

    Praying over our country right along with you!!! ❤️

  8. Ryan, you remind me of David when he publicly admitted his sin with Bathsheba. It takes strength, courage and the belief that God has forgiven you to make such a public apology. May the Lord continue to strengthen you as you continue speaking Truth and shining His Light to others! Blessings to you and your family!

    And they will teach my people to make a difference between the holy and the unholy, and teach them to discern between the clean and the unsasured

      1. Always glory will be for God even if not everyone gives it to him, the difference between giving glory to God and knowing in your heart if we are really giving it to him, that outside of our lives without the Grace of God, I hope in God my brother that every day you will be better

  10. Very powerful post, I can deeply empathize with you here and believe the whole body of Christ is currently feeling this same heaviness. The “birthing pains”. God is in control. I still confidently believe the truth will come out and Trump will serve four more years. Stay blessed! We’re playing for the right team! I pray those that are living by the ways of the world will come to love and seek the truth.

    1. Thank you, sister, amen! I definitely pray for that. It will take a miracle for Trump to win this, and I pray he does. We’ll see what happens very soon. My greater hope is for the Rapture to happen in our lifetime. May His will be done. God bless you!
