Celiac, Hurricanes, Election 2020, and Jesus First

Photo by Ryan, Venice Beach, Florida

If you are wondering where I’ve been the last week, the title of this post gives you a hint about what I’ve been dealing with. This has been one of the hardest weeks I have ever had fighting Celiac. Pain and nausea came back with a vengeance, and it has been very difficult to eat. My blood sugar and energy level has dropped significantly, and it has made daily life very difficult. The pain and digestive issues have been like when I was first diagnosed almost 9 years ago. We also dealt with Tropical Storm Eta all week, which turned into a Category 1 Hurricane just as it made landfall right where we live along the Gulf coast. Praise God that the storm weakened quickly and went back to a Tropical Storm! We are okay and we didn’t have any flooding or damage. On top of all that, we are also living through a contentious election here in America, which has people on edge. It has been quite a week, and I am still very sick to my stomach, but the Lord just keeps me going. No matter what, Jesus is first above all things, He loves us more than we can imagine, and He is in control!

Thank you to every single one of you who prays for me and my family! I know many of you struggle with chronic illness and debilitating diseases. My prayers are with all of you as well! We are not alone. Please don’t ever give up! I say that to myself as much as I do to you. I understand the loneliness and pain. I know what it feels like to fall into depression and lose hope. May Jesus lift us up in His loving arms and comfort us. May He give us strength and encourage our hearts! There is a purpose in all of this suffering, and He will never leave us nor forsake us!

It is not easy dealing with gut sick nausea during a storm warning. The feeling of the approaching storm was also making me feel sick on top of it all, and I was laid out for several days. I don’t like the storms down here. The Lord gave me a very sharp and sensitive intuition, and I can always feel when danger is near. The way these storms feel here in Florida is extremely ominous. Eta hung around way too long and it bounced around all over the place. Man, I was praying non-stop! I don’t know about living down here sometimes, but I trust this is where God wants us and He will protect us.

During this time of suffering and storms, it has been interesting and revealing to watch our country debate the election. The Presidential election is far from over, yet the media continues to insist, even demand, that we recognize Joe Biden as President-elect. The truth is, Joe is not President-elect because we don’t know the final results of the election yet. The votes are still being counted, and there are several states going through ballot verification and recounts. Trump just won North Carolina the other day, and they finally called Alaska for Trump too. As of right now, Trump is actually in the lead and we are waiting on the final results from the states in contention. After that, the state legislatures have until December 14th to resolve the disputes.

That is the real process of our election system based on our Constitution. The media does not decide the winner of the election, so it doesn’t matter how many times they lie about Joe. All their nonsense about calling him President-elect, and Joe setting up his phony and totally unofficial “Office of the President-elect”, is just that, nonsense. Don’t let it bother you. Joe never won, and no such office exists.

The mainstream media does not control the narrative anymore like they once did. Americans and the world see their propaganda for what it is, a pack of lies. The legal votes will be counted and any illegal votes must be thrown out. All the Dominion voting machines that switched millions of votes from Trump to Biden must also be investigated.

This whole thing is going to blow the lid off of decades of election fraud by the left. As always, I am praying the Lord will expose the lies, reveal the truth, and His will be done. God establishes rulers, whether they be Kings or Presidents, and He will not be mocked.

Democrats think government is God, and they believe they have the power to dominate and control our lives. Just look at how they are talking! They think they’ve won, so they are out in the open talking about putting conservatives on blacklists, locking down the country yet again, and shutting down businesses, schools, Thanksgiving, and everything else! Somebody tell AOC to go ahead and put me on her Bolshevik style list! It’s a glorious honor to be persecuted for Christ! May my life and death bring Him glory!

These socialist liberals have gone totally crazy, and their ideology and words are treasonous against everything America stands for! Lockdowns, enemy lists, and concentration camps are not far fetched conspiracies. They are actual ideas pushed by the left, and we must fight back with truth! These people are literal Marxists, and their vision of America is one of an all powerful totalitarian communist government from cradle to grave. It’s amazing the lot of them hasn’t been arrested for treason and sedition!

The liberals are also pushing mandatory masks, vaccines, and contact tracing. Do they want to put an emblem on my jacket showing I am a Christian too? Do they want to stop me in public and yell, “Show me your papers!”? That is where their dangerous and traitorous speech is leading to. Cuomo and other Democrat Governors are already using Covid to persecute Jews and Christians.

It’s disgusting that they spent 4 years calling us conservatives “Nazis” and “Fascists”! Do they even know what those terms mean?! Do they not know history?! They even have their Antifa thug army, which operates exactly like Hitler’s Brown Shirts. How hypocritical to call themselves anti-fascists, when they are literally fascists committing fascist violence in the streets on all those who disagree with them!

They are the fascists and Nazis! They are the ones who are engaged in a violent Marxist revolution to overthrow our country. They are the ones who want to be tyrants and dictators telling people what to do in their own homes! I am not a Nazi or a fascist. I am not a racist. I am an American Patriot and I want freedom for my country!

The phony call for unity from the left is nauseating too. Now they want unity?! Seriously?! After all their violence, hatred, murders, and lies?! After all their destruction, burning, and looting?! After calling us racist and causing violence against us, and turning our country into a war zone?! After never accepting the election of Trump, falsely accusing him, falsely impeaching him, and lying about him and us for the last 4 years?! I don’t think so! I guarantee they won’t be calling for unity once they realize Trump won.

I forgive them in the Name of Jesus and I pray for them. I will not be unified with darkness ever! There is no fellowship between light and dark, and I have no fellowship with people who support abortion, hate God, and do everything they can to destroy my country with their communist lies and violence. I will fight against their lies and violence by preaching the truth!

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”

-2 Corinthians 6:14

The left wants to kick you out of society if you are a conservative. They don’t want unity! They want you to bow in total submission to their socialist tyranny, and if you don’t, then they get violent. Sound familiar? Who are the real Nazis here? It’s not Trump, conservatives, or Christians! We are the ones holding the line against the tide of evil. If you voted for Joe, I hope you’re paying attention to the insane things your party is saying, and I hope you understand just how hateful, tyrannical, and un-American they truly are.

The left is using Covid to enslave us in their new world order. We are being lied to about the death rates. The CDC already reported that only 6% of the Covid deaths were actually due to Covid, but people still believe the lies from CNN about crazy numbers of deaths and hospitalizations. This is not about Covid. This is about control. This is about seeing how far they can go at taking our rights and freedom away from us. Sadly, too many are willingly submitting to this grand lie.

They are already talking about not being able to be a part of society unless you take their vaccine. Ticketmaster even announced this week that you cannot attend a concert without proof of a vaccine or a negative Covid test. Do you see what is happening?! If you don’t, now is the time to wake up! Next it will be the mark on your right hand or forehead that you can’t buy or sell without! Do not let them put any kind of mark on you or microchip you! That is of the evil one and it will be used to dominate mankind during the Tribulation (Read Revelation 13)! Check out my post “A Dire Warning For 2020” for more about that serious truth.

I’m not taking any Covid vaccine and I will never take the mark either! No politicians elected by we the people have the right in this country to tell you how many people you can have over for Thanksgiving. They don’t have the right to force a vaccine on you, or take your job, or shut down your business, or close your churches or synagogues, but they are doing it because we the people are allowing them to. We must stand firm in the truth! People in Democrat controlled states are already getting a taste of what they mean by their new world order, and many are leaving in huge numbers to conservative states like Florida.

Just remember, voting liberal is what caused the mess you just left, so be sure to vote for conservatives who will uphold your Constitutional rights and provide a safe place to live. That is why you are moving down here. You are fleeing the liberal violence, high taxes, crime, and tyranny, and moving to a place where you can be a free American. That’s why we left Colorado! I will not be ruled by tyrants!

As I said in the beginning, Jesus is first above all these things. What are we to do as Christians as we see the times of the end approaching? What are we to do when we encounter storms and suffering? We do what we always do. We keep our eyes on Jesus and do His will!

Preach the truth, fight the good fight, finish the race! Jesus is coming soon, and our redemption draws near! Keep praying for our country and keep hope alive! God is in control as He always has been, and He loves you! If you know Jesus, continue to abide in Him. If you don’t know Jesus, please consider His invitation to eternal life with all your heart. He will forgive all your sins and save your soul, and that, my friends, is the most important truth of all!

“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

Grace and peace to you all!

Biggest Psy Op Ever

We are being lied to. Do you see it? Covid was used to force lockdowns, so they could force mail-in ballots, so they could ballot harvest and steal the election. This whole thing is the biggest psychological operation I have ever seen in my 42 years in America. Biden is going to try and claim victory tonight, and the media will join in the coup and back him up. Don’t believe their lies for a second! This election is far from over. The evidence of voter fraud is piling up and this will go all the way to the Supreme Court. It doesn’t matter what Biden or the media say because they don’t decide the outcome of the election, the votes of the American people do. The votes are still being counted, fraudulent ballots are being exposed, and our Constitutional Republic hangs in the balance.

Not only do we have the hundreds of thousands of fraudulent ballots that showed up in the middle of the night on election night and the statistical impossibility of 100% of those votes going to Biden, but we also have evidence of voter intimidation and obstruction by the left, votes for Trump being thrown away, vote counters filling out multiple ballots for Biden, thousands of dead people voting for Biden, and illegal secrecy of the vote count by barring legal observers. This is a coup, folks.

There is no way Biden got over 70 million votes, there is no way he got more votes than Barack in 2008, and there is no way he got the most votes of any President in our history, but that’s what the traitorous left and media want you to believe. Biden couldn’t even draw a few people to listen to him speak in an empty parking lot, and his campaign was the worst campaign ever. Trump’s rallies were record breaking drawing thousands of Patriots to every rally all across the country. There were also hundreds of parades and flotillas for Trump! There was even a parade for Trump in Nigeria! Democrats also lost seats in the House, and Republicans retained the Senate, but we are supposed to believe Biden got that many votes? Yeah, right! Even the media admitted Trump’s rallies were phenomenal!

The left is stealing this election through ballot harvesting and media propaganda. They flooded the vote count with fraudulent ballots on election night and they haven’t stopped since. Why is it that they never find any boxes of secret ballots for Trump? Because the fraud is coming from the left and those fraudulent votes all go to Biden, every single time. Can you imagine if Trump was getting secret 130,000 vote ballot drops in the middle of the night?! The Democrats and media would be going nuts! But we’re supposed to just ignore their blatant deception, and concede the election? I don’t think so!

The media, especially Fox News, created an illusion that Biden was in the lead the entire night by calling states early for Biden and delaying calling states for Trump. Their ridiculously early call on Arizona for Biden was the worst. Trump was in the lead all night on election night, until the blue swing states stopped counting votes around 4 a.m. and they had hundreds of thousands of fraudulent ballots delivered. It all went sideways Venezuelan style after that. Thank God that Patriots protest peacefully!

If they are allowed to steal the election, then what is the point of ever having another election? If we can’t trust the vote count, then we don’t have a Constitutional Republic. America as we know it would fall and socialism would rise. They cannot be allowed to steal it!

There have been reports that there is a special watermark on official ballots. Any fraudulent ballots will not have the watermark and will be easily identifiable. Official ballots were made by the Department of Homeland Security. The National Guard is helping in the effort to count votes now. God will expose this fraud and Trump will be declared the winner. It may take a few weeks, but the truth will come out and it will be clear that Trump won in a landslide on election night.

There will be ballot verification, recounts, and plenty of time in court, and ultimately this will most likely be decided by the Supreme Court. Bush wasn’t declared until December 15th, remember? Be patient and pray. Any claim by Biden, the Democrats, or the media that he has won the Presidency is a complete lie and liberal fantasy. It’s just the final act of their coup.

Trump told us many times this was going to happen. He and his administration knew what the Democrats were planning, and they have been preparing for this. Check out what Trump tweeted back on June 22, 2020:

God desires truth and justice. If the Democrats had not tried to cheat, then this would not be happening. Trump is the most pro-Christian, pro-life, pro-America, and pro-Israel President we’ve ever had! Biden and Harris would destroy this country with wickedness like full term abortions and lowering the age of consent to 12! Not to mention raising our taxes and destroying our jobs and healthcare again! Do you remember what we went through for 8 years under Obama and Biden?! May those wicked people never rule us again! God’s anointing is on Trump and he will be victorious! Why? Because God is just, that’s why.

“You shall not steal.”

-God speaking, Exodus 20:15

I’m not giving up fighting for this country I love with all my heart and I’m not giving up fighting for our great American President Donald J. Trump, who has fought so hard for us! My prayers are with Trump, and a believer’s prayers to Jesus are a Holy weapon against the spiritual forces of darkness coming against him and our country. This entire coup from Covid until now will be exposed. This attack will be defeated just like the Russian collusion lie was defeated, the phony impeachment was defeated, and every other attack the left has thrown at him has been defeated!

Check out this new song by my brother in Christ, Bryson Gray! It’s called “PATRIOTS VS EVERYBODY.” Bryson speaks the truth and he definitely sums up how we Patriots feel right now. Every dirty trick in the liberal playbook has been thrown at us, but we will not give up! We will fight for truth, righteousness, and justice!

We must stand firm in the truth and not back down. We must have fair and honest elections if we want our Republic preserved. We must fight the good fight against the lies!

The new world order globalists serve the devil. They are making their final move to take down America once and for all, and they are going for it with all the evil power and money they’ve got. This is our last stand! This is our American Revolution and we must hold the line! How we fight back this very moment will determine whether we live as free men or bow to tyrants! May God give us strength and anoint us with righteous victory! Never give up! Never surrender! Fight the good fight!

God bless Trump and all the Patriots fighting for freedom!

Grace and peace to you all!

Cheating Doesn’t Establish Rulers

Last night was a late night for many of us here in America as we watched the vote count into the wee hours of the morning. We went to bed knowing Trump was well in the lead, and even leading in key blue swing states. Despite the terrible coverage by Fox and many other mainstream media outlets calling states for Biden way too early, and delaying calling states for Trump (even with 99% of the vote in that he had clearly won), Trump’s lead was obvious. Then all those democrat controlled swing states stopped counting votes because they didn’t like Trump’s lead, then a bunch of ballots suddenly came out of nowhere and 100% of those fraudulent ballots went to Biden. We all see what’s going on here, folks. The left is trying to steal this election, but they forget something very important. Cheating doesn’t establish rulers, God does!

The coverage of the election was awful. I turned it to Fox just to see how bad it was, and it didn’t take long for me to turn it off. It’s sad what happened to Fox. Tucker and the other Patriots should leave. Don’t even get me started about CNN and the other hardcore leftist propaganda machines. I watched the coverage on Newsmax on Twitter until about 1 in the morning. It was so much better! Factual, honest, and straightforward reporting. Check them out!

It was ridiculous that Fox called Arizona last night! That was way too early! Arizona is still in play! Trump is leading in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Georgia too. This whole vote count fraud going on in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania is such a shame, and it totally undermines the integrity of our Constitutional Republic. We must pray for our country and ask God to have mercy on us! Please, Lord Jesus, deliver us from the hand of the wicked and may their evil plans come to nothing!

God reminded me of a verse in Colossians today. It is regarding the supremacy of Jesus Christ above all things and how the thrones, powers, rulers, and authorities were created. There are those in this country who think they can cheat God’s will, but God will not be mocked. God is in control, He sees the cheating by the left, and God laughs at their pathetic attempt to change His will. Remember who is above all things! God has a will and it will be done!

“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

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 1:13-20

Amen! Jesus Christ is Lord! It is God who establishes rulers, not men! Jesus has all authority over all world leaders, and it is God who places and removes them from power! God abhors dishonest scales. God is with Trump, and no amount of cheating can ever stop God’s will!

Keep praying and keep hope alive! It was awesome last night when Florida was called for Trump! It was an honor to vote for Trump here in Florida and it is an honor to be a part of that victory! Praise God!

Don’t let anxiety rob your joy or peace. God is truly on His throne above us all, Jesus is our Lord and Savior, and God will accomplish His purpose on earth! To my fellow Patriot brothers and sisters here in America, hold the line and pray! May God strike down the lies and fraud, bring the truth to light, and may His will be done! If it is God’s will for Trump to remain President, which I believe it is, then Trump will remain President, and that victory comes from God alone!

Grace and peace to you all!

Vote To Honor God

Well, we made it to November! The election is almost over, and tomorrow, November 3rd, is a very big day here in America. This has not been a normal election year. We have been living through a civil war and we are fighting for the very soul of our nation. American Patriots are coming together as one all across our country, and it is so beautiful to see the country I love fighting back! We will never bow to socialism or communism and we will never bow to the new world order globalists! We reject the lies, hatred, and violence of the left, and we cry out for righteousness, healing, and peace in our land! Trump is my President because the man is a real American Patriot who has fulfilled all his promises to fight for America, and he is the only President in our time who is actually fighting the globalist traitors and doing everything he can to restore jobs, prosperity, and freedom to Americans!

If you are still listening to the mainstream media and their ridiculous polls, then you might think Joe is in the lead. That is so far from the truth it is laughable! Absolutely ridiculous, actually! Did you see what was going on this weekend here in America? It was like one big party and rally for Trump! Even in places like California! Patriots are coming out of the woodwork in huge numbers and they are marching, having Trump truck parades, and huge Trump flotilla parades all across America! The early voting numbers look excellent for Trump too. Here in Florida, conservatives are out-voting liberals by a landslide! My advice would be to stop watching the leftist liars in the mainstream media, even the ones on Fox, because they are not telling the truth, and their polls and “reporting” are a joke.

Trump Flotilla in Florida

Here is a real polling model for you:

Americans have had enough of the democrats and their lockdowns and socialist violence! People need to get back to work and we want peace and freedom! We need our police and we must have law and order. We don’t want our cities, homes, and businesses being looted and burned to the ground by Antifa and BLM terrorists! We don’t want violent mobs harassing, attacking, and killing people! We don’t want our country destroyed and we don’t want our lives dominated and controlled by socialist tyrants!

We must preserve our Constitutional Republic and the opportunity of freedom for all people! That is why people are coming out by the thousands to support Trump! That is why his rallies are packed even past midnight, like in Miami last night! White, Black, Latino, Asian, it doesn’t matter; everyone is supporting Trump because they know all the great things he has done for this country, despite all the lies and hatred of the left!

God is using Trump to strike at the heart of the globalists who worship the evil one. Just look at all He did with Trump in such a short time despite all the opposition, false accusations, false impeachment, and 24/7 lies against him! Here are just a few things Trump has done that would have been incredible to get done in 2 terms, let alone just a few years:

Trump stands up for God and the Bible and is unashamed to speak the Name of Jesus and pray! Far cry from the last President who declared that America was not a Christian nation! Now we have a President who invited Jesus into the White House and recognizes His authority and gives Him glory!

Ended the disastrous globalist NAFTA (the China prospering free trade deal that de-industrialized our country and destroyed our manufacturing and jobs for 30 years), and he created the USMCA based on fair trade, which brought jobs back to America and has given us an economic boom

Low taxes, higher incomes, and support for small businesses

Lowest black, Asian, and Latino unemployment ever

$500 billion Platinum Plan investing in black communities

Prison Reform, First Step Act, and Opportunity Zones, which fixed many of the disastrous policies put in place by Biden’s racist 1994 crime bill

Secured record funding for HBCU’s and made sure it was permanent

Peace with North Korea

Multiple Peace deals in the Middle East

Ending the globalist forever wars and bringing our troops home

Photo credit: White House

Recognized Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel

Destroyed ISIS, shut down Iran’s nuclear deal, saved hostages, and passionately supports and strengthens our military

Fixed our healthcare by getting rid of the socialist individual mandate (you know, the one created by Obama and Biden that ruined our healthcare and sent prices sky high)

Protected our border

Destroying the globalist child trafficking network nationwide

Supports our police and law and order

Supports the Second Amendment

Staunch supporter of the sanctity of life

Defunded Planned Parenthood

Supports school choice

Signed executive order protecting prayer in school

Ended tyrannical federal land grabs and protected our farmers

Made America energy independent (no more reliance on foreign oil)

Appointed record number of judges who will uphold the Constitution

Passionate Patriot who loves this country with all his heart and fights hard every day to preserve and protect our Constitution, our rights, and our Republic

There is a lot more, but you get the picture. The man has done everything he said he was going to do and more! He has proven over and over that he loves this country and he is a true American Patriot! He is not a politician or a globalist traitor! We finally have a real American President who is fighting for us!

There have been heartbreaking casualties in this civil war, and we have witnessed unimaginable violence and anarchy in the streets of lawless liberal cities and states. There are those who want socialism, and ultimately communism, to rule our country, and they seek to establish their utopia of evil, sin, and death through mob violence, defunding police, and tearing down our Constitutional Republic with lies and race-baiting hatred. Americans see through their lies now and we will not bow to their violent socialist intimidation!

As a Christian, it is my duty to vote in a way that honors God. God is the One who establishes rulers and kingdoms and nations. Neither Democrats nor Republicans are perfect, and neither party is our savior, but only one party is seeking righteousness and peace for America, and it’s NOT the Democrats. I read a very intelligent Spirit-filled article today about why it is important for Christians to vote. It was written by David Closson who is the Director of Christian Ethics and Biblical Worldview at Family Research Council. He says it well, when he writes:

“Although neither political party perfectly represents Christians, party platforms allow us to make thoughtful judgments regarding who we will support at election time. These platforms, which serve as proposed governing philosophies, allow Christians to see if and how the political parties prioritize issues on which the Bible clearly speaks. 

Compelled by love for our neighbors and a desire to steward our God-given responsibilities, we must, as Christians, engage in the political process. But we must engage Biblically. This requires that we be prepared to grapple with the moral issues of our day, the reality of our two-party system, and follow our Christian convictions to their logical end by voting for candidates and parties that support clear Biblical values.”

-David Closson, Politics: How Involved Should Christians Be?

Amen! Trump has proven that he stands up strong for Biblical values, even in the face of vicious hatred. If you are a Christian who has fallen for the lies against him and you still listen to the lying MSM propaganda about him being racist and all other such nonsense, please repent and pray for the man! If you have gotten caught up in the lies of the Marxist based “social justice” movement, flee from it now! The democrat party has been completely taken over by radical leftists who want to spread sin, immorality, and death through our nation! What they mean by “social justice” is hate for America, tearing down our country through racist class warfare, hating police, and promoting socialism, abortion, immorality, and lawlessness. God is with Trump and God is using Trump as a rallying cry against the evil new world order!

Jesus Christ is my Savior. He commanded me to love my neighbor. My whole country is my neighbor, and I love my country with all my heart! Trump is my President because he is the best and only choice for preserving and restoring America for my family and my neighbors. I voted for him in 2016 and I voted for him again on the first day of early voting here in Florida back on October 19th! My Mom, my wife, and a bunch of my aunts, uncles, and cousins are voting for Trump too! I voted for him because I know the truth and I know all the great things he has done for our country! I don’t live in lies, I live in the truth!

Even my 67 year old Dad, who has been a staunch Democrat his entire life, is voting for Trump! My Dad hates war, and he is very impressed by Trump’s peace deals and bringing our troops home. Many Democrats are walking away from their party because of how vile and evil they have become. Get ready for the RED WAVE, ’cause it’s comin’! The silent majority is silent no more! The sleeping giant is awake & we are fighting for our freedom! TRUMP2020LANDSLIDE!!!

I also read an article from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association today titled, “Why November 3 Should Matter To All Christians.” The author quotes Pastor Tony Evans who says we should be “Kingdom voters.” I completely agree!

“A Kingdom voter is a Christian—a serious Christian—who accepts the responsibility and takes advantage of the opportunity to participate and partner with God to expand His rule in society through civil government,” Evans said.

“The Biblical role of civil government is to maintain a safe, just, righteous and compassionately responsible environment for freedom to flourish,” he continued. “That’s what you vote for because God created government. You leave God out of government and it becomes something other than what it was created to be. Just like when you leave Him out of your life and any other aspect of your existence.”

-Written by Kellie Van Gilder, BGEA

The Apostle Paul is clear in Romans 13 that the authorities are established by God. I want to vote for the candidate and political/social agenda that partners with God to establish His will for civil government, safety, justice, righteousness, peace, and freedom for America! If you are a Christian who is still nitpicking and judging Trump, please knock it off and look at the truth of what he has done and all he has accomplished for our country! The man is fighting to save America!

Please see the bigger picture! We are fighting a spiritual war against the evil one and his kingdom (Ephesians 6)! The left has sided with the evil one and they are desperately trying to birth his evil new world order in our country. God has given us a most unlikely man to rise up and fight back! Now is the time to push back the wickedness and darkness in our country! Now is the time for Holy revival! God is on the move and He is doing a new thing! Do you perceive it?!

Stand up for righteousness, freedom, justice, and peace! Vote to honor God! Vote to expand God’s Kingdom, God’s morals, and God’s values! Vote for our hardworking God-fearing American President, Donald J. Trump!

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

“The heart of the wise inclines to the

right,

but the heart of the fool to the left.”

24 Years Of Faithfulness

Photo by Ryan, Daniels Park, Douglas County, Colorado

October is a very special month to me. 24 years ago, in October of 1996, Jesus saved my soul! I don’t remember the exact date, but I know it was a Friday and I’m pretty sure it was the second Friday that October. It was my freshman year in college and I had just left a terrifying supernatural ordeal that lasted the entire 4 years I was in high school. The Lord found me broken, hurting, confused, and angry, and He lifted me up and filled me with His healing and love! He gave me a new life, filled me with the Holy Spirit, and set me on a new path that has continued to this day! Thank You, Jesus!

When I say 24 years of faithfulness, I am not talking about myself. For the last 24 years of my life I have followed Jesus, but I have not always been faithful to Him. I have made many mistakes and fallen many times, but through it all the Lord has been absolutely 100% faithful to me! When the Lord saved me, I was a broken 18 year old teenager who used alcohol and partying to numb the pain from living in a nightmare. I hated God and Christians, and I never thought I would ever accept Jesus. I am so thankful that He had mercy on me!

Where I have sinned or faltered in my walk with Him, Jesus has never left me. He has disciplined me, pruned me, even punished me in His great love, but He has never left me and He never will. He has always been faithful to forgive and restore me. The number one thing I want all people to know about my relationship with Jesus is that He has been so very faithful to me! When He said, “no one can snatch them out of my hand,” He meant it! We can take Jesus at His word and trust Him with all our hearts!

“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

Many of you already know my testimony and you know about my book “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life.” For any new folks here on my blog, my testimony is filled with supernatural experiences and miracles that will challenge what you perceive to be reality, and hopefully, show you just how much God loves you. The Lord gave me the gift of evangelism 24 years ago and He has been using me to share my testimony and preach the Gospel ever since. With all my heart I want you to know that God loves you, Jesus is alive and He loves you, and everything the Bible says is true!

When I was in 8th grade, back in 1991, my Dad got a new job in Illinois. Unfortunately, we ended up moving into a house that was possessed. For 4 years when I was in high school, our family lived with an evil spirit (a demon) that tormented us. It did many terrifying things, including turning lights on and off, knocking pictures off the wall, kicking our dog, making a breathing noise in my ear, showing itself to my sister one night, lighting a candle, and many other things that just about ruined our lives. We were not Christians back then, so we did not know what to do. We told a few people what was happening, but we mostly just stayed quiet about it and tried to live our lives like normal. It was terrifying and insane.

After Jesus saved me in October of 1996, I went home that Christmas break and the very first thing I did upon walking through the front door was run all through the house going room to room rebuking the demon out in the Name of Jesus! We never had any more trouble after that, and my Dad, Mom, and sister all ended up getting saved! Facing real evil will send you running into the arms of Jesus!

2 years later in the summer of 1998, my very strange supernatural life continued as I had two encounters with God’s angels that strengthened my faith and gave me an even deeper understanding that nothing is impossible for God. The first time, an angel rescued me by carrying me away from a man who was chasing me with a butcher knife on the streets of Denver. The second time, an angel appeared to me in my friend’s house and gave me a message that God had something for me to do. We ended up saving a woman from a dangerous situation that night. Heaven and hell are very real, both angels and demons really do exist, and we all desperately need Jesus to save us!

In 2012, my life took another strange turn as I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease on January 6th that year. Then on April 28th, 2012, the Lord did the most powerful miracle of my life when He saved me by the power of the Holy Spirit after I stopped breathing due to anaphylactic shock. I am alive today because Jesus lives! Jesus saved my life by angelic protection and He protected me and put me back in my body after I died in 2012! Jesus is the resurrection and the life and Jesus is Lord!!!

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

-John 11:25-26

Please read my posts “Remember that time when…” and “My Lazarus Moment” to learn the details of those amazing experiences!

Through it all, the Lord has been so faithful to me! Even through all the pain and suffering with Celiac Disease, Jesus is always with me and He always strengthens me, comforts me, and gives me peace. For the last 8 years and 10 months of my life, I have fought this disease by the power of the Holy Spirit. All the supernatural events and miracles have given me great encouragement during my time of suffering. I know without any doubt that Jesus Christ is real and He is alive, and I will testify of His great love for His glory until my very last breath!

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

-Romans 8:38-39

It is almost Halloween, the celebration I most despise. I warn you as I have before, do not mess around with evil. Do not watch the scary movies, do not take it lightly, and do not allow evil into your home. It is not funny and it is not a game! There is nothing fun or funny about the evil one, his demons, or hell. Flee from all of that sin and death, and honor the Lord!

It has been very difficult for me to write consistently lately. Those of you who have been reading my blog for the last 2 years, know that I use to write just about every day, but sometimes I need to rest when I’m fighting bad episodes with Celiac. It has been difficult since moving here to Florida back in July, and the last 2 weeks have been very painful. My small intestine is damaged, so I have issues with the digestive process. I’ve been dealing with the hot nausea that knocks me to my knees, intestinal pain, and loss of appetite again. It’s almost impossible to write when I’m that sick and I just can’t get out of the bathroom. It is also very lonely and difficult to bear at times, but the Lord is always faithful to lift me up. Thank you for your prayers!

The Lord has been refining me in the furnace of affliction, and I submit to Him and His will. With all the Lord has done for me and my family, I know full well that He can do anything at anytime, and that includes healing me. I know with all my heart that He will finish the work He started in me because He is faithful and He has proven that to me time and time again the last 24 years!

If you don’t know Jesus, please come to Him before it’s too late! The signs of the end times are all around us, and although we don’t know how much time we have left, we do know Jesus is coming soon. Jesus loves you, Jesus died for you, and Jesus will forgive you 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

“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

If you know Jesus, but you have fallen into sin, please repent and turn back to the Lord! It is never too late! Jesus still loves you, He has redeemed you, and He still accepts you as His own! Don’t listen to the devil’s lies! Jesus is faithful and nothing can snatch you out of His hand. Read Hebrews 12, submit to His loving discipline, and return to Him. He loves you forever!

My name is Ryan Callahan and this is my testimony before God and man. Every word is true and I pray the Lord uses it all to lead many souls to salvation! May God’s will be done in all things! Jesus is alive, Jesus loves you, and Jesus will always be faithful to you!

Grace and peace to you all!

“Praise the LORD, all you nations;

extol him, all you peoples.

For great is his love toward us,

and the faithfulness of the LORD

endures forever.

Praise the LORD.”

-Psalm 117:1-2

Jesus Is Still The Answer

Photo by Ryan, Venice Beach, Florida, July 2020

Jesus started his ministry when He was 33. That was 1,987 years ago. A lot has changed since then, but we are still on the same earth dealing with the same sins. Despite all the modern inventions and technology, we still see the same violent rebellion against God, and it is getting worse. People are scared of death. That is really what is driving this entire psychological operation of virus fear mongering we are all living through. People don’t want to die, and they have deep and serious questions regarding their soul and eternity. I’m here to tell you, Jesus is still the answer in 2020 and He will be the answer forever!

My Great Great Grandpa was killed by lighting when he was about my age in his early 40s. He was trying to get the horses in the barn during a storm. They found him with a hole in his hat from where the lighting had struck him in the head. Whether it is from a lighting bolt, a virus, a heart attack, or whatever other dangers we face, we will all take our last breath someday. That seems scary and people don’t like talking about that hard truth, but we don’t have to be afraid with Jesus. He defeated sin and death at the cross, and He set us free from the fear of death!

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death-that is, the devil-and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”

-Hebrews 2:14-15

People are scared of death because the evil one holds that power over the world and he makes people slaves to it. There is only One who can release you from that evil fear and set you free, and His Name is Jesus! When Jesus died on the cross for the sins of all mankind, He destroyed the devil and set the captives free! God, in His great love, poured out His love and grace on the world and opened the Way to Heaven through the Blood of His Son!

“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 free from the evil one and that evil fear? Then believe in Jesus! Turn from the sin and wickedness in this world and give your life to the One who loves your soul!

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

-John 14:6

There is only one Way to Heaven. God’s one and only Son is Jesus, and only Jesus died for our sins. No other name in all creation has ever done that or could ever do that! Indeed death is coming for us all, but those who know Jesus Christ already stand victorious over death! Our sins have been forgiven and we stand reconciled with God! When I stopped breathing on 4-28-2012 (see my post My Lazarus Moment), Jesus was right there with me comforting and protecting me! There was no fear! There was no pain! I was in perfect peace with my Savior who loves me!

“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

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

-Romans 6:23

“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

The Lord put me back in my body that day and I am only alive because of Jesus. Thank You, Jesus! We have all sinned and we all desperately need God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love. Give those burdens, sins, and fears to Jesus! He will forgive you and make you new in the power of the Holy Spirit! Yes, God will actually fill you with His Holy Spirit, which empowers you to live a righteous life that pleases God!

“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

“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

“The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

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 5:19-23

You don’t have to be afraid anymore. Jesus loves you, Jesus died for you, and Jesus is waiting for you with open arms!

“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

Grace and peace to you all!

Can’t Cancel God by Bryson Gray

Album cover, “Can’t Cancel God” by Bryson Gray

There is a new Christian album out right now that went straight to #1 on iTunes within hours of its release! That album was made by my friend and brother in Christ, Bryson Gray! If you have been reading my blog for awhile, then you know Bryson is on fire for Jesus, and he preaches the truth boldly. He and I are a lot alike in how we preach the truth of God’s Word and the Gospel unashamed. He is also a strong American Patriot like me and he speaks the truth about all things, including society and politics. His new album “Can’t Cancel God” is a Holy Spirit filled weapon that cuts down the lies of the evil one, and pierces the darkness with the light of Jesus! Bryson loves Jesus with all his heart, and like he says, “this is not the Christian music that you’re used to.” This is God bringing His army toe to toe against the evil one and his wicked influence over culture worldwide! This is spiritual warfare and this is how soldiers of God fight back!

“I know we’re at war, the devil runnin’ the culture. A warrior for God, so I’m gonna fight until it’s over. I gave my life to the Lord and then He made me a soldier. Ya’ll can take all of the money, I’m never givin’ my soul up!”

Bryson Gray, From song “God Wins”, Can’t Cancel God

It is so encouraging and refreshing to see God rising up soldiers and sending them into battle! Bryson and I have been fighting side by side in the trenches on Twitter for a long time. It’s amazing to see how God has moved in his life! He is a humble man of God who just recently became famous this year after the booming success of his albums “Maga Ain’t Got No Color” and “Maga Szn.” You may remember my post about Bryson titled, “You’re My Brother.” Despite all the attention and success, Bryson remains humble and close to his brothers and sisters who have supported him from the start. He is flying all over the country doing shows, but he still takes time to hit me back on Twitter when I send him an encouraging word. It has been an honor and a blessing to fight alongside him in the hate filled trenches of Twitter.

Bryson is an independent artist and he remains that way because he always puts God first. He is not going to sell out to some big record label that controls his speech. He preaches the bold truth straight from God’s Word, and he will not be silenced! In a culture that wants to cancel God and kick Him and His Word out of society, God’s people will stand firm and declare that God will never be cancelled! God’s warriors will always rise up and we will preach the truth until our very last breath! The Kingdom of Heaven is advancing forcefully and nothing can stop it, amen!

“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 11:12

Please support my brother in Christ and buy his new album! The beats are excellent and the truth flowing through every song is so refreshing! It is amazing to see his album at #1 on the charts, and it shows us that we don’t need the evil system of Hollywood and the media to be successful in music or movies or any other artistic avenue! God is using independent Christian artists to break through the lies and hate, and we are victorious by His power and grace! We are standing up to the wickedness in our culture, and millions of people are seeing the light!

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

John 14:6

If you believe in Jesus, keep going! Keep fighting the good fight and never give up! Whether you are a writer or musician or artist or poet or whatever other gifts God has given you, the Lord can and will make an impact through you for His glory! In a world that twists and distorts God’s Word and calls evil good and good evil, we must stand firm in God’s truth! We must take up the sword of the Spirit and charge the enemy! Take the fight right to his doorstep and kick the door down in the power of the Holy Spirit!

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

Ephesians 6:10-13

God’s warriors fight to call people out of darkness, and that is exactly what Bryson does in his new album. It is a call to come out of this dark world and wake up to the Light! It is a warning to repent and a call to come running to Jesus before it’s too late! May the Lord use “Can’t Cancel God” to open up minds and hearts to the truth, and save souls! May He glorify His Holy Name through His people, and spread revival through the world!

“to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’…”

Isaiah 49:9

“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

“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”

Ephesians 6:14-18

To my brother in Christ, Bryson: keep standing firm, brother! We are praying for you and we are with you! Jesus is with us and He will never leave us! It has been awesome and encouraging fighting this war alongside you! We have received so much hate, but as you say on your new album and as Jesus told us, “the persecuted are blessed!” May the Lord fan into flame the gifts He has given His people, and may we be found faithful and strong in Him! My armor is on, my shield is up, and my sword is ready! See you back in the trenches, brother! You showed them all that they can’t cancel God! Jesus Christ is Lord!

“This is not the Christian music that you’re used to. There’s a lot of false prophets tryin’ to confuse you. God said, “You got talent, let me use you.” Give yourself to the Lord, become a new you! Okay, I know the devil tryin’ to get me, I say no way. I’m gonna tell you what these false teachers won’t say, it’s either God or the world, you can’t go both ways, can’t go both ways.”

Bryson Gray, From song “God’s Soldier”, Can’t Cancel God

Grace and peace to you all!

Fellowship Joy

Photo by Ryan, Dolphin in the Gulf at Manasota Key

One crucial part of life we are all missing during this time of fearmongering, lies, and shutdowns is fellowship. They shut down our businesses and churches, they isolate our loved ones in hospitals and nursing homes like a prison, and they made human interaction illegal. This needs to stop, folks, and it needs to stop now. The joyful fellowship I had this morning helped me see just how much I miss and need fellowship, and I mean good old fashioned in person face to face human interaction with no masks and no social distancing. 15 days to slow the spread turned into almost 7 months now. This is no longer about a virus, if it ever really was; this is about power and control. People need each other and we desperately need that fellowship joy!

This morning was such a surprising and refreshing encouragement that I knew right away that I had to write about it. Most of you know that we moved here to Florida back in July. Last Saturday, Governor DeSantis issued a new order that opened up the entire state and banned mandatory masks. We are living free in Florida, and no city, county, business, or school district can force us or our kids to wear a mask anymore! Praise God!

I even wrote the superintendent of our school district letting him know that I trust he and the school board will obey the law and no longer require masks. Our kids have been in school for a few weeks now. They are allowed mask breaks and other times where they don’t have to wear them, but they have still been required. Now that masks are optional in Florida, the schools must obey the law. The superintendent actually wrote me back and he let me know they will be reviewing the order and how to proceed this week. They are getting a lot of flak from parents here. People are fed up and we have a Governor who backs us up!

If people still want to wear a mask and they want their kids to wear a mask, go ahead. Your fear doesn’t limit my freedom, my family isn’t wearing one, and Governor DeSantis said you can’t force us to. Praise God for a Governor who protects and upholds our Constitutional rights and civil liberties! If you want to be forced to wear a mask, go live in Colorado where I came from. Polis is happily forcing everyone to mask up. You could also go live in NYC or California. Lunatic Governors Cuomo and Newsom love forcing masks on their people and violating their liberty with tyranny.

So, about that joyful fellowship this morning. A couple weeks ago, the air conditioning in our oldest car quit working right. Sometimes it would blow out cold air and sometimes it was warm air. It was miserable a few times picking up our son from school as I sat in car line for over an hour with no A/C. It happened again yesterday and that was the last straw for me, so I made an appointment with the auto repair shop just a few houses down from us on our street. It is such a blessing to have a shop so close! I just walked home after dropping it off.

When I walked into the shop, I was greeted by smiling faces instead of masks, and we said good morning to each other. We started to talk about my car, but then we all started talking about the chilly weather today. It was about 68 degrees this morning and it felt great! Nice cool crisp air and pretty much no humidity. This is the perfect weather Floridians have been telling us about all summer. It actually feels a lot like Colorado today, and I can definitely get use to this! Finally was able to drive with my windows down this morning too, which felt great!

As we talked about the weather, I told them I was from Colorado and I loved the cooler air. I was talking with the owner, the woman at the front desk, and a mechanic. The owner asked me why we moved to Florida, so of course I told him about the liberals and high taxes in Colorado and how we wanted to live in a conservative state with a strong conservative Governor. After that, we talked about the debate last night, Covid, masks, schools, supporting Trump, and my favorite, Jesus. We ended up laughing and talking for almost an hour and the joy of the Holy Spirit was flowing!

They are all Christians and the owner even has a prayer room! How cool is that?! I’ve never seen an auto shop with a prayer room, but I have now! It was so much fun talking with all of them that I didn’t want to leave. It was like we were having church and it was beautiful! It is awesome being surrounded by people who love Jesus, family, and America!

It was so healing and refreshing to share fellowship with them. The owner even shook my hand! It is so cool to see people not living in fear! I reached out and shook his hand with great joy! It was awesome talking with fellow brothers and sisters who speak the truth about faith and politics! All of us need the comfort and encouragement of fellowship. God’s Word is clear, it is not good for man to be alone. We need to gather together to talk and pray and sing and encourage each other! We all need that fellowship joy!

“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Ephesians 5:19-20

A few days ago, there was a Christian brother here in America who was arrested because he was singing at church without a mask. Yes, arrested! I never thought I would see the day where a Christian was arrested for singing at church in America! This isn’t about Covid. This is tyranny and persecution! Do we have a Constitution or not?! I know we will experience persecution as Christians, but even the Apostle Paul stood up for his rights as a Roman citizen (see Acts 22:22-29). They are using fear as a weapon to take our freedom and overthrow our Republic, and we all better stand up for each other before our freedom and rights are gone forever!

“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

No one in America should ever be arrested for singing at church! That is NOT America! How we are living down here in Florida is America. The American dream is alive and well down here! We are working, our kids are in school, and we are free! Our families are safer too because we DEFEND the police and respect law and order. You won’t see any of that liberal socialist violence down here! Antifa doesn’t want to tangle with our law enforcement officers, that’s for sure!

That burst of joy I received from having fellowship with my two brothers and sister in Christ this morning was glorious! We need to gather together to talk and sing and hug and shake hands and pray and worship together! We need human touch and interaction! No one in this country has the authority to violate your civil liberties or rights. We have the First Amendment and all other rights protected by our Constitution for a reason! No one has the authority to shut down your faith, your church, or your fellowship!

Take off that mask full of lies and fear! Talk to each other face to face and worship God together! There is nothing like the Holy Spirit fire among believers! That conversation this morning fired me up in the Spirit and the joy from that fellowship is still flowing! Love each other, be strong and courageous, and go get yourself some of that fellowship joy!

Grace and peace to you all!

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”

2 Corinthians 13:14

Prayer March 2020

There is a huge prayer march going on right now in Washington, D.C.! It is being led by Franklin Graham as thousands cry out to God for healing in our nation. Brothers and Sisters in Christ, please join me in praying for our great country today!

Here is an email from Franklin Graham this morning:

“Dear Friend,

Today, thousands of Christians from Across America will join my family and me in Washington, D.C., for Prayer March 2020. Our country is in trouble like we haven’t seen in our lifetime. We have no hope outside of God, and unless His people call on His Name for help, we will not make it.

You can be a part of this critical time of prayer. We will broadcast this event live online, and you can pray with us as we make our way from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol. We will stop at key locations to ask God to heal the divisions in our nation, guide our leaders, protect our religious freedoms, and pour out His Spirit on America.

Will you pray with us during the march today by joining the live stream–and inviting others to join you as well?

We are at a crossroads in our nation’s history–so much is at stake. Let’s ask the Lord to intervene.

May God bless you, and may God bless America!”

Franklin Graham

You can watch Prayer March 2020 live at PrayerMarch2020.com. They will also have the entire 2.5 hour video of the event available after the live stream.

Our country desperately needs prayer! I am crying out to the Lord to spread healing and revival through our country, and asking Him to restore law and order and righteousness through our land!

I am definitely feeling better about living in Florida after Governor DeSantis opened up the whole state yesterday, including banning mandatory masks! Praise God for our freedom here in this country! It is worth fighting for!

Keep speaking the truth, keep praying, keep hoping, keep believing, and never give up! Give the battle to the Lord and we will be victorious!

Grace and peace to you all!

“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Homesick

Photo by Ryan, Rocky Mountain Front Range, 1-1-20

Homesickness is a real thing. If you have ever had to leave your home, then you know this is true. I’ve been having a hard time writing and I debated whether or not to even write this post, but I am a writer, so it always helps to write what’s all jumbled up in my heart. It helps make sense of what I’m feeling and thinking. Maybe it will help you too. I miss my home and my heart feels sick. Not sure where this is going. I’m just going to write.

If you have been reading my posts regarding moving to Florida, then you know we left Colorado on July 19th and arrived here on July 21st. It was truly amazing how fast God moved in power to get us down here! He truly did part the seas for us! I want to be clear that I am very thankful for all the Lord did. From my wife getting a job so fast to selling our house in only 3 days, it was evident that He was with us and it was His will.

Everything is fine here and we are pretty much settled in for now. We will be moving again into our new home in 7 or 8 months, but this rental house is home for now. The people are nice here and the school is great. Our kids have already made good friends, and my wife already has good friends among her coworkers at the school too. Our daughter attends the same school my wife teaches at, and our son is at the charter’s elementary school right across the street. My wife is actually one of our daughter’s teachers, which is fun for them. They are just up the street about 8 minutes from the house too.

It is a huge blessing that my wife got hired by this charter school. It’s one of the best in the whole country, and both schools are protected full time by armed police officers, which I love. My kids are safe under armed protection at home and at school. I love seeing my son standing next to a cop when I pick him up. That man is a brave hero and I know he would give his life to protect our son and all the kids there.

Missing home is nothing against Florida. I just miss my home. I miss where I’m from, where I grew up. I lived in Colorado for 34 years. I’ve lived here for 2 months as of today. I was raised in Colorado, went to college and met my wife there, raised our kids there, and we had a great life together there. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love Colorado, and nobody ever expected me to leave. Matter of fact, I was the absolute last person my friends and family thought would leave. I wanted to live the rest of my life there.

I miss taking a deep breath of that crisp Rocky Mountain air. I miss the majestic mountains and fishing for trout in the beautiful rivers. I miss the sweet smell of vanilla on the bark of the mountain pine trees. I miss the deer coming through and the sounds of the crickets and sparrows. I miss watching the hawks soaring through the bright blue sky with the gorgeous view of the Rockies in the background. I miss the amazing sunrises and sunsets, the changing seasons, and how everything moves and feels. I miss the people, I miss Denver, and I even miss the snow and cold. I know God brought us down here to rescue us and bless us and I know there is nothing back there for me now, but my heart wants to go home.

The people here are nice and the Gulf and beaches are great. My wife and kids love it here and are very happy, but it’s harder for me. No matter where I live, Celiac is still with me. I’m still sitting in the house suffering and fighting this disease, and it has actually gotten worse since moving down here. I’ve been struggling with pain, loneliness, and depression yet again. You wouldn’t know that most of the time by how I write because I give it all to Jesus and just keep pressing on. Sometimes I write about it, but most of the time I don’t. It’s not easy fighting a chronic illness, and I fight the depression, anger, and loneliness that chronic disease and pain causes too.

I don’t really know what to do about how I’m feeling other than give it to God. I am 42. I’ve been fighting this disease for almost 9 years now. That is a lot of lost time I can’t get back. Almost a decade of my life is gone. Since moving down here, I’ve felt a deep hopelessness; like I’ve run my race and my life is over. I know we had to leave Colorado, but it still hurts that we had to leave. If it wasn’t for this disease, we would most likely still be there. If I was able to work full time like I did before Celiac destroyed my life, then it would not have been a problem.

There were other reasons we left, not just finances, but finances are a big reason when you can’t afford where you live anymore. It makes me so mad what those liberals did to my beautiful state! I love Colorado with all my heart! I wish I could go back and run for Governor! I would take the fight to those leftist traitors so hard, and I would have Colorado back on track to righteousness and prosperity in no time! No high taxes, no mandatory vaccines, no mandatory masks, no taking money from teachers, no lawlessness, and no shutdown!

I pray God spreads revival through Colorado and our whole country, and He removes all those wicked leftist traitors from power! Just look at all the violence, destruction, and death they have caused! It’s sickening! They want power, they want to control you and your kids, and they want to enslave us all with their socialist tyranny! Stand up, speak the truth, and fight back!

I am a mountain man. I lived the majority of my life at high altitude breathing thin fresh air. Our house was at 6,115 feet and we enjoyed beautiful blue skies, and clear starry nights every day. I am not use to wetness, rain, and humidity, and at this point, I don’t want to get use to it. I could turn off the A/C and drive with the windows down in Denver. If I do that here, the inside of the car starts getting wet and I can’t breathe from the heat and humidity. It has gotten a little cooler and less humid as we approach October, but it’s Florida, so I can never get a deep breath like I can in Colorado. The air is just too thick and wet here. I’m use to living in a high desert plain with dry heat, four seasons, and crazy weather coming down from the Rockies.

I didn’t want to leave Colorado. I just wanted to get out of debt and be able to afford the cost of living again. We did that, but we had to sell our house to get it done. We didn’t like what Polis was doing to teachers and the schools, but there are ways to fight back against tyrants and their tyrannical actions. We were getting tired of cold and winter, but my wife is from Anchorage, Alaska and I’m from Littleton, Colorado so that was the least of our concerns. I was going to have people shovel snow and mow my lawn as I got older anyway. The winter weather along the front range is pretty mild most of the time (even warm at times), and with over 330 days of sunshine per yer, just about every day in Colorado is beautiful.

There were so many things I wanted to show our kids. I never even got to take them up to Trail Ridge Road. They have been to the mountains many times, of course, but there was so much of the state we hadn’t seen. Even after living there for 34 years, I never got to visit Mesa Verde or resort towns like Steamboat and Crested Butte. I was blessed to have plenty of other adventures there like dropping in to Parsenn Bowl on my snowboard at 12,000 feet, river rafting the white water on the Arkansas, and hiking the Keyhole Route to the summit of Long’s Peak at 14,259 feet. Even did some rock climbing and rappelling in Estes Park. So many great memories.

I know we will make new memories here, and our home is wherever we are together as a family, so I am praying to stay positive and I’m asking the Lord to comfort and heal my heart. I will always miss Colorado and I truly hope I get to go back someday, even if it’s just to visit. I pray all my brothers and sisters in Colorado will stand up and fight back against the tide of liberal wickedness spreading through the state. Stand up for each other, stand up for your God given rights, and don’t let those insane traitors control your lives! Colorado is much too precious and beautiful and it must not be run by people who want to turn it into the failed socialist state of California! They are already well on their way, and if you’ve lived in Colorado for over 30 years like me, then you know I’m speaking the truth.

Yes, the cost of living is better down here, and we have a conservative Governor who respects our rights and law and order, but I will always miss Colorado. It use to be a red state, you know? Colorado was always conservative, always that is until liberals from Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle started pouring into the state as they fled all the problems they and their liberal politicians created in their states. It’s totally insane that they think going to a new state will change their lives, when they come to the new state and vote and act the same sick way that ruined their last state! Polis ruined Denver and now it’s just like L.A.! Increased crime and violence, massive amount of homeless camps, defunding police, Antifa and BLM terrorists on the streets, and sanctuary city lawlessness! That is not Colorado and that is not how Colorado should ever be! Fight back and kick those tyrant traitors out of office!

To all my brothers and sisters in Christ, please pray for me and my family. Pray the Lord heals me and gives me strength. The stress from the move has been difficult on my body and my health. The last week of August I might have even suffered a heart attack or an angina, but I’m not sure. It was very painful in my chest, like someone was squeezing my heart, and my left arm went numb. My kids were home because school hadn’t started yet, but my wife was at work getting her classroom ready. My kids just about called 9-1-1, but I had them text my wife and she was able to come home.

I was bent over gripping my chest groaning in pain as I cried out to the Lord, and I thought I was going to die. It was very hard to breathe as any time I tried to take a breath, I would get a sharp shooting pain in my heart. I didn’t want to tell anyone because I didn’t want anyone to worry, especially my parents, but I told my Mom yesterday. She wants me to see a doctor. I hate going to doctors, but I probably should find out what happened to my heart that day. The pain lasted from that afternoon until I passed out at 2 a.m. the next morning, and my chest was sore and tender for several days afterwards.

I don’t know the full extent of damage that Celiac has caused to my body. Being malnourished due to a damaged small intestine does all kinds of things to the human body. I don’t know how much time I have left on this earth, but I pray to live a life that pleases the Lord. Whether I live in Colorado or Florida, and whether I am healed or not, may His will be done in all things. My life is in His hands and I know He will never leave me nor forsake me. I know He loves me and watches over my life. Whether I die at 42 or 82, may He glorify His Holy Name through me!

“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

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39

I miss my home, but I look forward to my eternal home in Heaven with Jesus most of all. That is my true home! This whole earth is just a rental, and I long to be home with the Lord. I give my broken heart to the Lord. May we have our eyes forever on Jesus!

“But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.”

2 Peter 3:13

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Philippians 3:20

Thank you for your prayers! Grace and peace to you all!
