Hello friends and family and God bless you all!  Today is a special day here in Colorado because this is the day the Governor’s stay at home orders expire.  Colorado is officially open for business!  Praise God!  I was praying that the Governor would not extend the quarantine and I am very thankful that the Lord answered my prayer!  To all my fellow Coloradoans out there, get outside and enjoy the beautiful sunshine and temps in the high 70s this week!  It’s time to have a great summer!

Another beautiful day today! I took all these photos this morning.

There are 7 counties that are extending the stay at home orders until May 8th, but our county is not one of them.  There are already more cars coming up and down the big hill that leads up to our neighborhood.  It’s great to see everyone enjoying their freedom!  The timing is great too!  Seriously, it’s supposed to be 86 degrees by Thursday!  Winter is over and the quarantine is over, praise God!

It’s time to get this great country back to work!  We can all wear masks for a time if that’s what people want to do, but we have to get back to living again.  I am very thankful that Governor Polis stuck to his word and ended the quarantine today.  God bless him for that!  We need to be brave and keep pressing on!

“For I am the LORD, your God,

who takes hold of your right hand

and says to you, Do not fear;

I will help you.”

Isaiah 41:13

“I lift up my eyes to the hills–

where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD,

the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Psalm 121:1-2

Just as Jesus always tells us, do not be afraid.  Trust God and keep moving forward!  He is with us and we can trust Him!

“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.”

Jesus speaking in John 14:27

Grace and peace to you all!

A Prayer Against Coronavirus

It has been busy here at the Callahan house since Sunday.  It’s looking more and more like spring around here and we are enjoying it.  I did the spring clean up in the yard today and it felt great being outside.  Thank you all for praying for me!  God has answered by taking away the pain for now and giving me strength, praise God!  Take heart!  The quarantine will be over soon and we will all take a collective deep breath and sigh of relief.  My prayers are with all the families who have lost loved ones due to Coronavirus and with those who are still fighting the illness.  This post is a prayer for those families and a cry to God to stop this virus and bring healing.

“Lord Jesus, we lift up all the families who have suffered the loss of loved ones due to this virus.  Please comfort their hearts and bring them peace.  We pray for those who are fighting the virus and ask that You pour out healing on them.  Protect the nurses and doctors and all the medical staff helping the patients and give them strength.  Please strike this virus down and spread healing and revival through the world!  Pour out Your Holy Spirit on us all and bring peace.  Protect us all from evil people who are trying to use the virus to hurt and control us, and give our leaders wisdom and discernment in fighting the virus.  Spark fires of revival in every human heart on earth, and deliver us from evil!  May Your will be done, Lord, amen.”

God loves you!  Keep your head up and your eyes on Jesus!  Nothing is impossible for God!

“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 18:19-20

“For nothing is impossible with God.”

The angel Gabriel speaking to Mary in Luke 1:37

Grace and peace to you all!

A Dire Warning For 2020 Part 2: Coronavirus, Vaccines, & Digital ID

IMG_7068
Photo by Ryan, Sunday 4-19-2020

Before I get started, I wanted to thank you all for praying for me this week.  I also appreciate your messages of support.  I am not in pain like I was five days ago and I am thankful to God for that.  I am also thankful for God’s mercy in giving me rest.  I am very tired from fighting the pain all the time.  Again, thank you for your prayers.  There is something I have been wanting to warn you all about.  I was going to write about it on Monday, but it was put on hold because of the suffering.  This warning is in regards to an attempt by the New World Order globalists to force a deadly vaccine on us for Coronavirus and force their microchip technology on us at the same time.

Back on January 4th of this year, I wrote a post titled “A Dire Warning For 2020” where I warned about microchip technology and the mark of the beast spoken of in Revelation 13:16-18.  If you have not read that post, I encourage you to do so before reading this post.  It will give you a base understanding of Bible prophecy regarding the coming one world government, the antichrist, and the mark to control humanity.  This post could be considered a part 2 to what I warned about in that post.

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

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

Revelation 13:16-18

How does all this tie in with Coronavirus and the current pandemic we find ourselves in?  Let me show you what I sent to Tucker Carlson on Thursday, and I will explain.  May the Lord give us all wisdom and open our minds and hearts to see the connections and unveil and expose the evil plans of the New World Order.

Screenshot_2020-04-18 Ryan Callahan on Twitter TuckerCarlson Investigate ties btwn the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Harvard[...]

Yeah, that’s a mouth full!  I have been doing a lot of research this week.  God does that a lot when I’m suffering.  I truly hope Tucker investigates all that.  He did several great reports on the Wuhan Institute of Virology this week.

I learned about the lab in Wuhan at least a month ago, but I have been researching and speaking the truth about the NWO since 2013.  Many of you have read my posts on topics such as 9/11 and the Federal Reserve.  There really are evil people who worship the evil one and they really are building the one world government for the antichrist.  There is nothing conspiracy about the prophecies in God’s Holy Word.   God shows us who the evil people are and He exposes them and their wicked plans for humanity.  It is my job as one of God’s soldiers in Christ to shine His light on the darkness and expose them!

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

Ephesians 5:11

God does not want us to die for a lack of knowledge.  We must know what the enemy and his horde are doing because they are trying to kill us.  I have been stirred up in the Spirit ever since news of Coronavirus first broke.  My intuition was high and I suspected that this was another attack by the NWO just like so many of their attacks in the past.  As soon as Bill Gates came rushing on the scene spouting off about vaccines and “digital certificates” to go with the vaccines, I knew this was an orchestrated biological attack on the world.  I will get to that, but first the lab where the virus was released from, and yes, I mean released and yes, I mean intentionally.

Patriots knew about that lab long before the mainstream media and we have been talking about it on social media.  You can find me on Twitter at: @AuthorRyanC.  It’s always interesting to watch the media playing catch up to the truth (#WeAreTheNewsNow).  Just last week, I was talking to several of my friends here on WordPress who had written excellent posts about the origins of the virus, and I told them that the virus came from the virology lab in Wuhan.  Now, the mainstream media admits it after many of them were quick to call it a “conspiracy theory.”  By the way, did you know the term “conspiracy theory” was a phrase created by the CIA?  They created the phrase to silence dissent, and control thought through shame and ridicule, so people would not search for the truth themselves regarding JFK.  There is nothing conspiracy about the only level 4 deadly pathogen lab in China being located in Wuhan.  It is fact, so let’s start there.

Wuhan Institute of Virology
Wuhan Institute of Virology

That photo shows exactly where this Coronavirus pandemic started.  The media won’t go as far as saying it is a bio-weapon that was released intentionally, but that is exactly what that deadly virus is and that is exactly what happened.  It is absolutely awesome to hear the media admit that “there is increasing evidence the virus outbreak likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory.”  That’s right!  There is a lot of evidence!

Why would Bill Gates have a patent on Coronavirus through the Pirbright Institute?  Furthermore, why is a guy who created Microsoft and has no medical training or degrees doing anything with vaccines at all?  The answer to those questions is much darker than you can imagine.

Gates is an agent of death for the NWO and his job is to work on depopulating the world through poisonous and deadly vaccines.  When Bill was growing up, his Dad was head of Planned Parenthood.  Their family is tied to the Bilderberg Group, George Soros, and eugenics.  Bill has a long history of hurting and killing people with his vaccines and he even admits that is his goal.  At a TED Talk in 2010 he openly admitted that he wants to lower the world population by using vaccines.  Here is the quote from that speech:

Bill Gates TED talk depopulation quote

Check out this excellent article by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. regarding the horrific injury and death Bill Gates has caused with his vaccines in Africa, India, and other countries around the world.  The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is not working to save the world through vaccines.  They are working on depopulating the world, and Bill admits it!

Gates’ Globalist Vaccine Agenda: A Win-Win for Pharma and Mandatory Vaccination

“Promising his share of $450 million of $1.2 billion to eradicate polio, Gates took control of India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI), which mandated up to 50 doses (Table 1) of polio vaccines through overlapping immunization programs to children before the age of 5.  Indian doctors blame the Gates campaign for a devastating non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) epidemic that paralyzed 490,000 children beyond expected rates between 2000 and 2017.  In 2017, the Indian government dialed back Gates’ vaccine regimen and asked Gates and his vaccine policies to leave India.  NPAFP rates dropped precipitously.”

-Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman, Children’s Health Defense

You must understand that Bill Gates is part of the NWO cabal that is building the one world government.  He is a member of the Bilderberg Group, which conspires to build that world government along with the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission.  Forced vaccinations and implanting microchips in people like slaves for mass control is the end game.  Bill Gates and the NWO are using Coronavirus to push for a mandatory vaccine that will be tied to “digital certificates” also  known as “digital identity.”  It is very convenient that Bill Gates has a patent on Coronavirus through the Pirbright Institute and now he wants to create and push a worldwide vaccine for Coronavirus along with his digital identity scam called ID2020.  It is much more than convenient and it is not coincidence; it is connected.

Thank God Attorney General William Barr does not agree with Bill Gates and his proposal for vaccine certificates!  AG Barr knows what Bill is up to and he is not having any of it!  Trump and his administration are not going to let some NWO psycho play the United States like a fiddle!

AG Barr Opposes Bill Gates Proposal for COVID-19 Vaccine Certificates

If you don’t know what ID2020 is, you should.  It is all about implanting microchips in people or using “tattoo markers,” which will be used to control and dominate humanity in the coming one world government.  They make it sound like the wave of the future that will give us ultimate freedom, when in reality it is about ultimate domination and control of mankind.

“New technologies, including blockchain, when used in conjunction with long-proven technologies, such as biometrics, now make it possible for all people to have access to a safe, verifiable, and persistent form of identity.

In September of 2015, all United Nations member states adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, including their commitment to “provide legal identity for all, including birth registration” by 2030.”

-ID2020.org

Folks, do you know what the 2030 Sustainable Development agenda is?  It used to be called Agenda 21, but they changed the name when the truth came out about it being a NWO plan to rule the world through a one world government!  Chipping everyone like slaves is a huge part of that plan and they admit it!  We do not need the United Nations, the EU, the W.H.O., or any other globalist arm of the New World Order forcing anything on us, especially vaccines and implantable microchips!  This is all very evil and it comes from the evil one!

Gates and his ID2020 Alliance are even rolling his digital identity scheme out on homeless people in Austin, Texas, and they admit to working towards merging vaccines with digital ID.

ID2020 and partners launch program to provide digital ID with vaccines

“The ID2020 Alliance has launched a new digital identity program at its annual summit in New York, in collaboration with the Government of Bangladesh, vaccine alliance Gavi, and new partners in government, academia, and humanitarian relief.

The program to leverage immunization as an opportunity to establish digital identity was unveiled by ID2020 in partnership with the Bangladesh Government’s Access to Information (a2i) Program, the Directorate General of Health Services, and Gavi, according to the announcement.

The city of Austin, ID2020, and several other partners are working together with homeless people and the service providers who engage with them to develop a blockchain-enabled digital identity platform called MyPass to empower homeless people with their own identity data.”

-Chris Burt, Biometric Update

I am NEVER taking any vaccine made by Bill Gates and I am NEVER taking his evil digital certificate, chip, mark, or whatever else he wants to call it, neither is my family, and nobody is going to force it on us either!  I will fight to the death against the New World Order because the New World Order is run by satan himself!  There is nothing “empowering” about being chipped and controlled like an animal!

Bill Gates and George Soros are both involved with China, the virus, the lab in Wuhan, and the companies making a vaccine for the virus.  Bill Gates funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology, he has the patent on Coronavirus, and he and Soros are funding the creation of a vaccine in collaboration with China.

“Bill Gates funded the Wuhan lab in China that released the Wuhan virus and is already selling test kits.  Coincidence?  Bill Gates was a member of China’s Academy of Sciences who built the lab and he was awarded their highest honor.

The Wuhan virus was originally developed by Chinese scientists at the University of North Carolina by NIH grants approved by the Obama administration in 2012.

To study the 2003 SARS coronavirus in a lab, NIH scientists developed a man-made version using Bat DNA.  That’s what the Communists unleashed.

The NIH defunded the “dangerous” UNC research because of proven human-to-human transmission, so the Communist Chinese scientists left UNC and took their work to the NEWLY BUILT Wuhan lab in 2017–funded by Gates, NIH & pals.”

-Tierney Real News Network

A Chinese company based in Suzhou called BrightGene Bio-Medical Technology just announced that it will be manufacturing a drug called Remdesivir made by Gilead Biosciences.  Gilead has a partnership with Wuxi Pharmaceuticals (Wuxi AppTec), which is located near the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Guess who owns both Wuxi Pharmaceuticals and Gilead?  None other than New World Order boss and sower of chaos George Soros.  If you don’t know how evil Soros is, then do some research into the man and the deviously evil work he does through his NGOs.  He is all about open borders, war, chaos, and depopulation.

George Soros meme

“BrightGene Bio-Medical Technology, a Suzhou based company, just announced that it has developed the technology to synthesize the active pharmaceutical ingredients of Remdesivir, the drug developed by Gilead Biosciences.  It’s stock price surged 20% in Tuesday morning trading in Shanghai.

While BrightGene said it intends to license the drug from Gilead, it’s move to start manufacturing at this early stage is highly unusual and a potential infringement of the American company’s intellectual property.  This comes a week after Chinese researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology filed an application to patent Gilead’s drug Remdesivir to treat the new coronavirus, a bid that would give China leverage over the global use of the therapy to fight the outbreak.”

-Shawn Paul Melville, Civilian Intelligence Network

So, we have the lab in Wuhan (funded by Gates) that released the virus working with George Soros owned pharmaceutical companies to develop a drug to treat it.

“The timing is uncanny!  Right?  Gilead will retain the global rights to market the antiviral medication, once approved.  Gilead has also announced that it is partnering with the Chinese Health Authorities on the clinical trials of Remdesivir as a treatment for coronavirus.  Remdesivir was originally developed in 2016 by Gilead as a treatment for the Ebola virus.  Many have argued that China stole the patent from Gilead due to a technicality, but you will soon see that this is indeed not the case.

And who exactly is Gilead Biosciences?  Gilead is partnered with Wuxi Pharmaceuticals (Wuxi App Tec) owned by New World Order philanthropist and mass manipulator himself, George Soros!  Wuxi Pharmaceuticals is conveniently located in the epicenter of the outbreak near Wuhan Institute of Virology that has been implicated as the Bioweapons manufacturer of this coronavirus!  Looks like China has both the Bioweapon and the cure!  And let’s not forget the patent on the treatment drug!  How charitable do you suppose China will be with the west?  But this story doesn’t end here.  George Soros also owns Gilead Biosciences.”

-Shawn Paul Melville, Civilian Intelligence Network

China has the Coronavirus and medication to treat it and it was Bill Gates and George Soros who helped them do it.  Connect all this with Bill’s global pandemic exercise called Event 201 in October 2019 and the Netflix documentary series by Bill Gates and Barack Obama called “Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak” released in December 2019, and the rabbit hole starts to get very deep.  The NWO was telegraphing what they were going to do and then a few weeks later they released Coronavirus on us all!

“The docuseries pushed the need for the Gates Foundation to receive funding to carry on virus research to prevent the next PANDEMIC!”

“Bill Gates & Barack Obama docuseries marketed the need for a global “universal” vaccine to replace all other flu vaccines.  I believe it will be used to deliver a human chip via nanotechnology designed to be monitored and controlled by Huawei’s 5G network.”

-Tierney Real News Network

“Bill Gates predicted a coronavirus-style pandemic would sweep the population in a Netflix documentary.  He warned of the likelihood of a virus forming in one of China’s wet markets–just like the one in Wuhan where coronavirus is believed to have originated.  Bill said we’re not prepared to contain a pandemic and warned it could ‘kill millions of people’.  In the episode, titled The Next Pandemic, producers visit a wet market in Lianghua, China, where animals are killed and their meat is sold in the same place.”

-Ekin Karasin, Metro

They were trying to set up and control the narrative like they always do!  Event 201 was an exercise that simulated a coronavirus pandemic and they found that it could kill 65 million people in one year!  What are the chances of Bill Gates hosting a global pandemic exercise and making a documentary about a pandemic just weeks before Coronavirus was unleashed on the world?  Coincidence?  I think not.

Event 201 logo

“On October 18, 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, with partners the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, hosted an emergency pandemic exercise at a gathering in New York City they called Event 201.

The simulated global crisis caused by an unknown, unstoppable viral outbreak was staged six weeks before the first cases were leaked from inside Wuhan, forcing the Chinese government to admit that the rumors and images of people falling down and dying before getting treatment were true.”

-Survival Update

“The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also co-hosted a pandemic exercise in late 2019 that simulated a global coronavirus outbreak.  Their simulation predicted that it could kill 65 million people within the year!”

-Shawn Paul Melville, Civilian Intelligence Network

Then we have the World Health Organization protecting China and covering up the truth and telling the world to keep their borders open back in January while Trump was doing the right thing closing our borders.  Thank God that Trump didn’t listen to the WHO!  They lied to the world and said it was not contagious from human to human!  They lied and said it was okay to travel, and they reprimanded Trump for closing our borders early!  Praise God Trump defunded the traitorous globalist WHO!  They are just another arm of the NWO and they do not serve the best interests of the United States or any other country!

We also know about Harvard professor Charles Lieber who was secretly working with China and being paid huge sums of money to create a lab and do research at Wuhan University.  Likewise, there is also a Chinese scientist named Xiangguo Qiu who is being investigated by the Canadian government for traveling to the level 4 deadly pathogen lab in Wuhan to train scientists and technicians.  It will be interesting to see how those stories end up being connected to the Coronavirus outbreak.  They are already connected to microbiology research in Wuhan.

Coronavirus: Wuhan has deadly pathogen lab linked to Chinese scientist under investigation

These are the nitty gritty details of how the NWO goes about building the one world government and specifically, how they are using Coronavirus to attempt a dominating power grab through forced vaccines and biometric microchip technology.  This is all leading to the mark of the beast prophesied in the Book of Revelation.

No matter what happens with this virus, DO NOT take any vaccine made by Bill Gates and NEVER EVER let any government stick a chip in you or tattoo you or put any other kind of digital mark on you!  We do not need any deadly vaccines made by Gates and we do not need to be forced to carry “digital certificates” proving we have received the vaccine!  It is not about freedom.  It is about total control of every human being on earth and they are using Coronavirus and a vaccine as the Trojan Horse to accomplish that sinister goal.

The NWO created this chaos, so they could come riding in acting like the saviors providing the solution.  It is a classic NWO tactic called the Hegelian Dialectic of problem reaction solution.  They create the problem, then they offer the solution, which is really no solution at all, but really a devious scheme to dominate humanity under the control of the antichrist and his one world government.  The Illuminati Masons (Scottish Rite Masons) worship the evil one and their motto is “order out of chaos.”  They create the chaos, so they can birth their evil New World Order.

The first commandment on their evil Georgia Guidestones is to reduce the world population down to 500 million.  They are dead serious about depopulating the world, and a bioweapon attack is just one method they use to reach that goal.  They also have other evil plots like poisoning the world’s food supply through Monsanto’s GMOs and cancerous chemicals.  Gates owns 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock and he once said Monsanto could save the world.  If you know how evil Monsanto is, then you know how evil Bill’s statement is.

I don’t trust Dr. Anthony Fauci either!  He is tied with Bill Gates on vaccines and he sides with the WHO.  Fauci even warned in February of 2017 that Trump would be confronted with a surprise infectious disease outbreak during his term.  Now why would Fauci say that?!  Fauci has repeatedly downplayed the effectiveness of Hydroxychloroquine in treating Coronavirus because he wants us to use a vaccine made by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation!  This post is already long enough, but you need to research ties between Fauci and Gates!  It is not good!  Trump needs to fire Fauci!  He worked with Obama when that traitor gave a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in 2015.  Why did Obama do that and why does Fauci support Bill Gates and his vaccines?  Because Obama is a globalist traitor and so is Fauci, that’s why.

RFK Jr quote on Fauci

It is very clear that Hydroxychloroquine works very well in curing Coronavirus, but Fauci, Gates, and the lying mainstream media don’t want you to know that.  Why?  Because they want you to think the only way to cure Coronavirus is through a vaccine created by them!  They want us to be afraid and they want to spread panic.  That way they can force their vaccine on us and ultimately chip us through ID2020.

Many Patriot Christian brothers and sisters are warning about all of this on social media.  I have sent tweets directly to Bill Gates confronting him and I have sent out many messages warning people about him.  I have many friends in Africa and India and from over 142 countries on my blog.  Please DO NOT let Bill Gates into your countries!  DO NOT EVER let Bill Gates, his foundation, or any group or company that works with him, inject you or your children with one of his deadly vaccines!  Kick Bill Gates out of your country just like India did!  The man should be in prison for what he has done and for what he is still doing with his depopulation agenda through vaccines!

DO NOT ever take the mark of the beast!  They already have the technology to put a “mark” on us that will be used to control how we function in society (buy and sell), and they are already pushing it on us in our time.  They want to merge it with vaccinations and that is why Coronavirus was released on the world.  To forcefully vaccinate and chip all 7.8 billion of us under the guidelines and goals of the United Nations Agenda 21 (a.k.a. the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda).

I know this is a long post, but I must warn you all about these things!  We don’t need to be afraid when we believe in Jesus.  The signs of the times we are seeing all around us are birth pains that the Bible predicted regarding the end times.  Jesus is coming back soon and He will destroy the antichrist and his one world government at the end of the 7 year Tribulation.  That time of Tribulation has not started yet, but we are rapidly approaching that time.

People must repent and turn to Jesus!  He is our only salvation and He is the only One who can deliver us from the evil one and his New World Order.  Today is the day of salvation!  Come to Jesus today!  He loves you and He will deliver you from the evil on this earth and save your soul!

“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

“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

Grace and peace to you all!

Update 4-30-20: It appears George Soros no longer owns Gilead, but it is correct that he owns Wuxi PharmaTech Inc. and they partner with Gilead on making Remdesivir.  Soros, Gates, and Fauci all stand to make big money on Remdesivir.  That is why Fauci downplays hydroxychloroquine and why he was so excited about Remdesivir yesterday (4-29-20) when he declared from the White House that Remdesivir will be the “standard of care” for Coronavirus, even with very little clinical evidence backing his bold claim.  It doesn’t cost much to manufacture hydroxychloroquine and it is highly effective at curing Coronavirus, but it doesn’t make anyone rich.  That is why Fauci is a cheerleader for Remdesivir.  It’s all about money and power, as usual.

All companies owned by George Soros in the United States and Abroad

I always strive to do thorough research.  If information changes, I will always update my posts.  God bless you all!

The Passover Prayers

IMG_7026
Photo by Ryan, Colorado hawk on our fence

Hello friends and family and God bless you all!  It is good to be writing today.  I didn’t write the last couple days because I have been suffering through pain, nausea, and intense gut cramping due to Celiac.  Interesting that it happens during the most important time of the year for sharing the Gospel.  With that and having to discipline the kids, make more meals, and do a lot more dishes all day, it has been very difficult to write.  I appreciate your prayers.  Today is Passover and I would like to share the prayers that Jesus prayed the night before His crucifixion.

Jesus said these prayers at the end of the last supper just before He was arrested that same night.  He knew He was going to be crucified the next day as God’s sacrificial lamb and His prayers reflect that mission.  You will find these prayers in John chapter 17.  I will share all 26 verses with you here, so you have the full text.  There is great power in these prayers and they are being answered even now!

Jesus Prays for Himself

After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:

“Father, the time has come.  Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.  For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him.  Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.  I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.  And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

John 17:1-5

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

“I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world.   They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word.  Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.  For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them.  They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me.  I pray for them.  I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.  All I have is yours, and all you have is mine.  And glory has come to me through them.  I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you.  Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name–the name you gave me–so that they may be one as we are one.  While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me.  None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.  I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.  My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.  Sanctify them by your truth; your word is truth.  As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.  For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

John 17:6-19

Jesus Prays for All Believers

“My prayer is not for them alone.  I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.  May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.  I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me.  May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me.  I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

John 17:20-26

Amen Lord, may Your will be done!  Can you imagine sitting at that meal with Jesus and hearing Him pray all that?!  That prayer He prayed for all believers includes you, me, and anyone in the whole world who believes in Jesus!  The very night before He died, Jesus was thinking about us!  We were on His heart as He prepared to face the cross, and His beautiful prayer echoes throughout eternity to the glory of God!

Someday, those who believe in Jesus will be with Him in glory and we will see His glory face to face!  Jesus was with the Father before the world began and He has all authority over mankind to give us eternal life!  Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Lamb of God, and the Lion of Judah, and anyone who believes in Jesus will be saved!

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.”

John 1:1-5

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.  We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

John 1:14

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

Romans 10:9

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

Romans 10:13

This Passover, as we pray for the plague of Coronavirus to pass over us, let us remember the prayers of Jesus and His heart of love for us the night before He died for us.  He does not want anyone to perish.  Jesus is the perfect sinless sacrifice for the sins of the whole world!  It is His Blood that forgives our sins and sets us free!  It is His Blood that covers our families in protection!  We have all sinned and we all need a Savior, and we must put our faith in Jesus to be saved!  Do not fear the virus!  Trust in Jesus!

“Therefore, since we have such a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin.  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

Hebrews 4:14-16

Grace and peace to you all!

Troubled Hearts

Good morning and God bless you all!  It’s a beautiful 70 degrees here in Colorado today.  While I was chillin’ on the deck this morning, I thought about the billions of people around the world whose hearts are troubled due to the virus.  I’d like to share some comforting words that Jesus spoke to His disciples a few days before His death.  He spoke these words while having dinner with them (known as the last supper) just before the Passover Feast.  The words of Jesus have the power to comfort troubled hearts, and I pray His words comfort you all during this time of worldwide trouble.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me.  In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.  I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.  You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Jesus speaking in John 14:1-4

Jesus knew His disciples were troubled, and He knows many are troubled right now.  It can feel like God is not in control and people begin to worry, but we can rest assured that God was in control in the week leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection, and God is in control now.  Jesus does not want us to be troubled.  He wants us to trust Him and be at peace.

No matter what troubles we face, we do not have to live with troubled hearts.  Give your worries, anxieties, and fears to the Lord and let Him give you a heart of peace.  None of us can control what happens in this world, especially when it comes to a virus, but we can have faith and stand firm in it.  Real peace is found through faith in Jesus!

“Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

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

John 14:5-6

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!  He is our Lord and Savior, and we can trust Him to see us through Coronavirus or any other trouble on this earth!  Keep praying, keep hoping, and keep believing, and never give up!  The Lord will deliver us all from this trouble very soon!

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

1 Peter 5:7

Grace and peace to you all!

Tell Them About My Love

IMG_7013

It is cold and overcast today here in Colorado and we are due to get more snow.  It’s so cloudy we can’t even see the mountains.  This is typical spring weather for us.  We never know when a storm or blizzard might sweep down from the Rockies.  Our neighborhood is quiet today with everyone staying inside protected from the cold and the virus.  I’ve been praying and thinking about what to write all day.  I’ve been worn out from Celiac lately and I felt like I hit a wall today with my writing.  As I prayed one more time for what to write, I heard the Lord whisper, “tell them about my love.”  So, that’s what I’m going to do.

It might seem strange to someone who does not believe in the Lord to hear someone say they “heard the Lord whisper” something to them, but that is how the Lord speaks to us by the power of the Holy Spirit and it’s awesome!  In thinking about God’s love, my mind immediately went to 1 Corinthians and 1 John, which explain the true definition of love and the truth that God is love.  God’s very character and essence is love.  Without God, there is no love.  We have and know love because of God.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.  Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.  And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.  If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God.  And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love.  Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.  In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.”

1 John 4:7-17

That is real love!  God loves us so much that he gave us His Son, Jesus, as a sacrifice for our sins!  God loves us so much that He promises to live inside anyone who believes in Jesus and make His love complete in us!

How does God love us?  Many of us have a distorted view of what love truly is.  Thankfully, we have God’s Word to help us understand what love should always be.

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.  But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”

1 Corinthians 13:1-8

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

1 Corinthians 13:13

Since we know from 1 John that God is love, then we know that God’s character is defined by every beautiful attribute of love described by Paul in 1 Corinthians.  How does God love us?  God is patient, God is kind.  He does not envy, He does not boast, He is not proud.  He is not rude, He is not self-seeking, He is not easily angered, He keeps no record of wrongs.  God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  He always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  God never fails and God is the greatest!

God also disciplines us in His love and His discipline leads to our good.  God’s discipline leads to holiness, righteousness, and peace.  He is a loving Father and He trains His children through His loving discipline.

“And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons:

“My son, do not make light of the

Lord’s discipline,

and do not lose heart when he

rebukes you,

because the Lord disciplines those he

loves,

and he punishes everyone he accepts

as a son.”

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons.  For what son is not disciplined by his father?  If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons.  Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it.  How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live!  Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness.  No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.  Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”

Hebrews 12:5-11

Even in His discipline, God is patient and kind with us.  He protects us and guides us as He watches over our lives and helps us stay on the right path with His loving guidance and discipline, and His love will never fail!

In the Psalms we learn that God’s love will endure forever.  Nothing can change the very nature of who God is.  He is love and He will always be love!

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving

and his courts with praise;

give thanks to him and praise his

name.

For the LORD is good and his love

endures forever;

his faithfulness continues through all

generations.”

Psalm 100:4-5

We also learn in 1 John that God’s love is perfect and His perfect love drives out fear.  You do not have to be afraid of God or His love!  He does not want you to be afraid.  He wants to make you perfect in love!

“There is no fear in love.  But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love.  We love because he first loved us.”

1 John 4:18-19

We know what love is because Jesus died for us on the cross!  Let that love sink deep in your heart!  There is no condemnation for those who believe in Jesus!  There is nothing to fear, not even death!  God’s love is perfect and never ending and He wants to shower you with His love!

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.”

Romans 8-1-2

“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

Do you want to be set free by God’s love?  Your freedom is waiting.  Put your faith in Jesus and He will save your soul and fill you with His love!

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

Romans 10:9

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

Romans 10:13

Grace and peace to you all!

Trouble During Coronavirus

IMG_7010

Yes, I made it!  I am actually sitting down and writing!  It has been a crazy couple days.  I didn’t write yesterday because we had our maple tree cut down in the morning, then my wife was out picking up a prescription and she ended up with a nail in the left rear tire and a completely flat right rear tire.  I don’t know what the chances are of getting two messed up tires on the same day and during a worldwide pandemic, but it happened and we had to deal with it.

Thankfully, my wife was at a Walgreens when the tire went flat, and the owner of the auto shop next door put the spare on for free.  I recently sold my truck, so I was stuck at home unable to help her.  She was able to make it to Discount Tire, but they didn’t have the tire we needed in stock and they were too full to fix the nail tire.  They ordered the new tire for delivery today and they told her they would be able to patch the nail tire, which was comforting.  She made it home safely on the spare and nail tire, and I am very thankful the Lord kept her safe.  I will be personally thanking the man who helped my wife once the virus madness dies down.

I got the car fixed this afternoon.  I had the insurance on the tires, so the brand new $149 tire cost me nothing.  They also were able to patch the tire that had the nail in it for free.  All I paid for was the $23 insurance on the new tire.  I always get that on all the tires.  It is worth it!

Praise the Lord that is all over!  I did expose myself by going out, but I trust the Lord will protect me.  I don’t know why that had to happen during a time like this, but the Lord took care of it.  Every evil attack against me and my family will be defeated by Jesus!

Here is the maple tree we had to cut down.  It was almost 14 years old.  I planted it myself when we first moved in back in 2006.  It was a great tree, but too many harsh spring blizzards took its toll and the whole upper half died last year.  Cutting it down did open up our view of Pikes Peak from the deck again though, so that is a positive.

I’ve been thinking a lot about Easter and praying about what to write.  The Lord is showing me some cool things, as He always does, so I’m excited to start writing about all of that starting on Palm Sunday.  We might be quarantined because of the virus, but we can still celebrate and worship Jesus!  Praise God we have the internet in our time, so we can stay connected and reach out to each other in love!

This is just a short post today.  Please always remember how much God loves you!  He does not want anyone to perish.  He desires all people to come to repentance and be saved!  That is what Easter is all about!  Jesus died for us all to take away the sins of the world!  He died for me, He died for you, and He died for the whole world to set us free from sin and death and give us eternal life!  We all want to be forgiven and we all want to go to Heaven.  Jesus is Lord and He alone is our forgiveness and salvation!  In these times we are living in, there is no better time than right now to make sure your soul is saved!  Please do not hesitate and do not delay!  Today is the day of salvation!

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”

John 1:29

“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

“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

“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.”

2 Peter 3:9

Grace and peace to you all!
