You’re My Brother!

I’m really encouraged to be sharing this today!  I’ve been wanting to introduce you to this man for awhile now.  If you don’t already know him and his music, I encourage you to check him out!  My friend, fellow Patriot soldier, and brother in Christ, Bryson Gray, just came out with an awesome new song preaching truth in love about race in America.  He also speaks bold truth about the deep state, BLM, and the leftist agenda.  Bryson loves Jesus and he and I are a lot alike in our passion for patriotism and preaching the Gospel.

You can find him on twitter at: @RealBrysonGray

He also has an album out called “Maga Ain’t Got No Color” which I love and listen to a lot.  MAGA (Make America Great Again) is not racist as the left wants you to believe.  It is about having a thriving and free country for all Americans where our Constitutional rights are preserved and protected.  It is about loving our country and loving each other!  We reject the left’s socialist ideology of sin and death!  We want freedom and we will fight for it!

Bryson’s music is encouraging and clean rap that promotes Christian conservative values, and we need more of it!  Bryson is not shy about speaking the truth in all things and he is unashamed and unapologetic about his faith in Jesus.  My kind of guy and he definitely has my respect!  We fight side by side on Twitter against the rising tide of evil in our country.  We both get persecuted by Twitter and slandered by leftist haters too.  He is my brother, and my white skin and his black skin have nothing to do with it.  We are both warriors for Christ and we are one in the power of the Holy Spirit!

I completely agree with his message in his new song “Color (All Lives Matter).”  I don’t care what color you are or where you are from in this world.  You are my brother or sister as a fellow human being on this earth.  I love you and care about you and I wouldn’t let anyone hurt you.  I don’t see color.  I see souls, and I want you to go to Heaven.  That love comes from God alone.  All the hatred in the world comes from the father of lies who dwells in darkness.  God’s light and love shatters the deepest depths of that darkness and sets us free!

“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

“You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.  There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Galatians 3:26-28

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

Galatians 5:1

NO MATTER YOUR COLOR, I LOVE YOU!  JESUS LOVES YOU!  JESUS DIED FOR YOU!  YOU WERE CREATED TO BE KNOWN AND LOVED BY GOD!  THERE ARE NO RACIAL DIVISIONS IN HEAVEN!  DON’T LET THE EVIL ONE DIVIDE US BY RACE!  DON’T LET HATE GROUPS LIKE BLM AND ANTIFA PUSH THEIR HATE INTO YOUR HEART!  DON’T FALL FOR THE RACE BAITING LEFT WING HATRED, LOVE EACH OTHER!

Hatred is a yoke of slavery.  Dividing each other by race is a yoke of slavery.  Stand firm in Christ in the freedom He bought for us with His own blood!  Stand firm in His love!

“If you’re white, you’re my brother, if you’re brown, you’re my brother, if you’re black, you’re my brother.  We goin’ ride for each other, no dividing each other, I don’t care about your color.”

-Bryson Gray

Grace and peace to you all!

Big Family Decision

Hello everyone.  I wanted to write a quick post asking for prayer for our family.  I hope comments are working now.  I wanted comments open on my post yesterday, but for some reason comments were closed.  That was really frustrating to me because I hadn’t written for a month and I wanted to talk with everyone.  Anyway, if you wanted to comment on my post yesterday, but couldn’t, please feel free to do that here.  Now, about my prayer request.

Most of you know that I have lived in Colorado for most of my life.  I will be 42 this summer and I have lived here for 34 years.  I was born in Illinois in the 70s, but I was raised in Littleton, Colorado from 1981 to 1991.  I went to high school in Illinois, then came back here for college in 1996 and have been here ever since.  This is my home and I love it here.  I love everything about it.  Our children were born here and we are raising them in an excellent, safe, and peaceful community.  I don’t want to leave.

Unfortunately, democrats have increasingly taken over our state and they have raised taxes to a point that it is becoming unaffordable to live here.  In the last few days we have had some difficult and interesting conversations about possibly moving to Florida.  My wife has family down there in Fort Walton Beach and she grew up visiting them.  She is interested in the Sarasota area and she is already looking at teaching jobs and homes.  Colorado has reciprocity with Florida for teaching licenses, so it is easy for my wife to get a Florida license.

I have only been to Florida once.  We went on a cruise that docked out of Miami.  I don’t know much about Florida other than what I’ve seen on TV and heard from my wife.  It has a lower cost of living than here for sure.  It is becoming like California here.  The housing market is way overpriced and everything is expensive.  We just can’t keep up with the constant tax increases anymore.  Florida doesn’t have state income tax, which is very nice.  It’s also a majority red state with a strong Republican Governor, which I also like.  The white sand beaches in Sarasota look very nice too.

My wife and kids are excited.  My kids keep talking about Disney World, beaches, the ocean, dolphins, and all the other attractions to visit.  My wife is tired of winter and she would love living in a hot place year round.  Plus, she loves Florida and loved going there as a kid.  They are also pumped about having a house with a pool.

I can’t say I’m excited.  I’m more in shock that we are even discussing moving to Florida.  A place I never thought I’d live and I never wanted to leave Colorado again.  This is my home and it’s hard to even think about it at this point.  I’m liking winter less and less as I get older, and it would be nice to have warm temperatures year round, but I would probably miss having four seasons.  Even our winters are pretty mild most of the time.  It’s the spring blizzards that are annoying.  Our summers are always nice with a mild fall and our skies are almost always bright blue with over 330 days of sunshine per year.

I do not like humidity even a little bit.  I’m a mountain man and I like the crisp high altitude air we breathe here.  I’ve never been in a hurricane, but I wouldn’t like it.  I don’t like nasty bugs, snakes, or mosquitos either and Florida has plenty of that.  And don’t forget gators too.  I can deal with mountain lions and bears, but I don’t like swamp critters.  And what’s up with the terrifying sink holes in Florida?  Man, that one dude was swallowed alive while laying in bed!  I’d rather be high and dry and safe from gaping holes in the earth here in the Rockies.  We have spiders and snakes here too, but nothing like Florida, and no cockroaches.  I do like fishing though and Florida has great fishing, and plenty of sunshine, so there is that.

There is so much to think about and so much to do if we do move.  Just selling our house and finding a home in Florida is daunting.  My wife has to get a Florida teaching license and apply for jobs first, then we’ll go from there.  It would help us financially to leave Colorado for sure, but at this point it would take a miracle for us to move there.  To me it feels like the Red Sea is in front of us and God needs to make a way or we won’t get through.

Please pray that we would have wisdom and discernment in how to move forward in all this.  Pray we hear the Lord’s voice clearly and follow His will.  And if you live in Florida or you have experience living there, please let me know your inside knowledge.

Thanks for your prayers!

Grace and peace!

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart

and lean not on your own

understanding;

in all your ways acknowledge him,

and he will make your paths

straight.”

Love Is Growing Cold

IMG_7157
Photo by Ryan, 6-9-20

Hello friends and family.  I hope all of you are well despite the current state of stress and chaos in the world.  It has been a month since my last blog post on Mother’s Day.  May was Celiac Disease Awareness Month and it was because of Celiac that I didn’t write much last month.  I appreciate those of you who reached out to me and encouraged me with your kind words and prayers.  I’ve also been fighting hard on Twitter preaching the Gospel and speaking the truth regarding social and political issues.  Here in America, we find ourselves in dangerous times.  The violent savagery, murders, and chaos are heartbreaking.  Anger and hatred are in the air, and the enemy is smiling.  Jesus told us the love of most would grow cold in the end, and that is exactly what we are seeing.  Take heart!  Jesus warned us all these things must happen before the end, God is still in control, and He knows what He is doing.

“Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 24:12-13

Yes, we are most definitely seeing an “increase of wickedness.”  Not just in my country, but all over the world.  This increasing wickedness is causing people’s hearts to become calloused and hard.  The warmth of God’s love is growing cold within them and it is being replaced with hatred and division.  That is what the evil one does; he steals, kills, and destroys.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Jesus speaking in John 10:10

How do we stand firm and prevent God’s love from growing cold within us?  We must cling to Jesus and let Him pour out His love into our hearts!  All of this racial division is from satan.  Divisions of the flesh are not of God.  God made all the different races on earth and He loves us all!  We are a beautiful tapestry of colors before Him!  Don’t ever feel ashamed for what color God made you and don’t ever bow down or apologize to anyone for how God made you either!  Any and all racism is sinful and evil whether you are black, white, brown, tan, or whatever.  The evil one wants us to hate each other.  Jesus told us to love one another.

“A new command I give you: Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

Jesus speaking in John 13:34

The death of George Floyd was a horrific tragedy that no person should ever have to suffer.  No police officer should ever abuse their power.  I agree with police reforms like banning the choke hold and the knee on the neck, and making sure officers hold each other accountable on the job.  I do not agree with hating police, defunding police, or disbanding police.

Also, how did BLM go from defund the police to bow down and feel ashamed because you’re white?  I reject the accusation that America is a deeply racist country with a problem of “systemic racism.”  You can be anything you want to be in this country no matter what color you are, if you are willing to work hard and earn it.  I also reject the accusation that I am racist just because I’m white or only white people are racist.  Black lives matter, of course (as do all lives), but the violent leftist hate group “Black Lives Matter” is pushing racism and hatred disguised as “social justice.”  Getting rid of police and hating white people is not the answer.  It’s just more racism, hate, and division.

BLM and Antifa both use violent tactics to get what they want.  Both are highly organized and well funded (research George Soros and his Open Society Foundations) and both are pushing for the destruction of law and order to achieve their leftist goals.  BLM even has a curriculum that has already gone into the schools in Baltimore that teaches kids that violence and destroying property are an appropriate form of protesting.  This is not just about holding police accountable and recognizing black lives.  This is about a radical agenda that will cause chaos, anarchy, and death in American communities.

You will never see me calling for the destruction of police and you will never see me feeling ashamed or apologizing for the white skin God gave me.  I see exactly what BLM is trying to do with their vile hatred and shaming, and I encourage you to not fall for it.  Both BLM and Antifa are weapons of the globalists who are trying to destroy our country.  They hijacked the peaceful protestors and they are using socialist insurrection tactics to tear down law and order.

Jesus proved all lives matter when He died for all of us.  He ended the debate about race almost 2,000 years ago when He gave up His Spirit on that cross and opened the way to Heaven for all of us.  We must seek reconciliation in love, not hate.  More hate is not going to heal anything.  Attacking police, looting, burning buildings, and murdering innocent people in the streets in mob violence is not going to change anything.  It has only caused more suffering.

“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

I stand with the peaceful protestors who seek real reforms without talking about the insane ideology of getting rid of police and blaming white people for everything.  The majority of our police are brave heroes who protect us from evil every day and night.  People need to be able to call the police for help if they are in danger from crime or any other help they might need.  We need to pray for the police and support them.  We also need to hold them accountable, but we absolutely cannot get rid of our police forces.  The authorities are established by God for our protection.  Any bad apples will be dealt with accordingly and removed from power.  The police and the people must never bow to criminals or to those who want us to bow to criminals.  God is just and we must have law and order in society.

Love is growing cold, but we must stand firm to the end as Jesus said.  Stand firm in Jesus on the foundation of God’s Holy Word.  In a time where more and more people are calling evil good and good evil, we must continue speaking the truth boldly in love.  We must call evil and chaos out for what they truly are, and where truth falls in the street, we must pick it up, dust it off, and send it on its way.  I receive hatred and slander just about every day on Twitter.  Twitter also continues to harass, shadow ban, and throttle down my account.  Their hatred won’t stop me.  The love of God burns hot within my soul and it keeps my heart warm in the power of God.  My prayer is for the Lord to pour out His love on us all and bring great healing and revival around the world.

Don’t let His love grow cold within you.  Fight that horrible pull towards hatred and seek peace through God’s love.  His love alone can heal all of our hearts.

Grace and peace to you all!

Happy Mother’s Day 2020!

I’m a little late on this today, but I wanted to say Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom, my wife, my sister, and all the Moms out there!  I’ve been spending the day with my wife and kids, and chatting with my Mom by text and email.  This morning, my Dad also surprised my Mom with a zoom call with my sister and her family and all of us, and we had a lot of fun talking with each other.  It’s always great seeing everyone!

I hope all my friends and family who are Moms had a very special day today.  Motherhood is hard work and you deserve it!  God bless each and every one of you!

I love you Mom!  Thank you for raising me with love, kindness, and encouragement!  You have always been there for me and I appreciate everything you have done for all of us!  Hopefully we will be able to get together soon!

I also want to thank my wife for being such a great mother to our kids.  Thank you for all you have done to raise our kids right!  It has been an awesome journey!  I love you!

“Listen, my son, to your father’s

instruction

and do not forsake your mother’s

teaching.

They will be a garland to grace your

head

and a chain to adorn your neck.”

Proverbs 1:8-9

Have a very blessed Mother’s Day evening, everyone!

Grace and peace to you all!

Preacher & Patriot

American flag

What a week!  I haven’t written a post since May 1st.  I have been trying to get back to my blog, but I have been dealing with Celiac again (which I really didn’t want to talk about again).  The Lord has also been using me in the Patriot war against the deep state traitors in our government, and I have been fighting hard researching, speaking the truth, and preaching the Gospel on Twitter.

It was a very exciting day today to hear that the DOJ has dropped all the charges against Patriot hero General Flynn!  We Patriots knew he was safe and would be exonerated weeks ago based on back channel communications on 8Chan, but it was awesome to see it come to fruition.  I sent several encouraging messages of support today to Flynn and his family.  I, along with millions of my fellow Patriots, fought hard to get the truth out about the corruption of traitor Comey and his corrupt FBI investigation.  The whole Mueller investigation was based on false allegations, falsified documents, fabricated evidence, and illegal FISA spy warrants.  In short, it was treason.  There is no Russian collusion and there never was!  God hates false accusations and I praise God that the truth is out now!

Screenshot_2020-05-07 (4) Ryan Callahan on Twitter We love you GenFlynn We salute you, sir God bless you and your family 🇺[...]

I could write so much more about my role in the Patriot Revolution and how God is using me to help take our country back, but it would be best to show you.  If you visit my Twitter page (@AuthorRyanC), you can see the articles I post and the truth I speak about what is going on in my great country of America.  As most of you know, I do speak about political and social issues on my blog sometimes, but this war against the deep state traitors is different for me.  If I started talking about everything I talk about on Twitter, it would overtake my blog.  I would have to start a separate blog just for the citizen journalism God has me doing.

I have good news!  We are fighting the traitorous mainstream media and winning!  We are fighting the deep state trolls online and crushing them, and we have the new world order on the run!  Consider this a kind of field report.  They come at us with hate, lies, and slander, and we cut down their lies and hatred with truth.  They censor us or shut down our accounts and we keep coming back, and there are millions of us!  They can’t stop God and nothing can stop what is coming to those traitors!

Here is how I replied to Adam Schiff today after he tweeted out that Flynn was guilty as charged.  This is just one example of how we fight the lying traitors and expose them.  Schiff and Comey can feel the noose tightening and they are in panic mode.  They never thought Hillary would lose.  They thought they could get away with it.  They were wrong!

Screenshot_2020-05-07 Ryan Callahan on Twitter RepAdamSchiff No, Flynn was set up amp; led into a perjury trap by traitor C[...]

There is your real Russian collusion right there!  The Steele dossier was a pack of lies bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton!  The whole thing was made up in an attempt to stop Trump!  The truth is out and they can’t hide it!  I love cutting down lies with truth!

God always opens doors to share the Gospel too and of course, I am always ready to share Jesus.  I had an all day battle with a deep state troll today.  He tried to spread lies and propaganda against Flynn and Trump, but God used me to shut him down.  He had replied to a comment I left to Trump regarding investigating Fauci’s ties to the Wuhan lab, Gates, and Remdesivir, and it was on from there.  We went back and forth for hours and I was able to share a bunch of great articles and truth memes, and at the very end I shared the Gospel with him.  It is awesome serving my country as a Patriot preacher!  Jesus is my Lord and Savior, America is my country, and Trump is my President, and I fight hard with a heart full of love for all three!

Like I said, I have kept this mostly separate from my blog, although I have written several passionate posts about my support for Trump, conservative values, and fighting the new world order in the past, and I will continue to do so.  I am one of the digital soldiers in the Patriot militia fighting throughout social media.  We are in a shadow war against the deep state and we are winning.  Many lies and traitors are going to be exposed in the coming weeks.  Pay attention to the news because you will start seeing Patriot victories very soon and Flynn is just the start.  Also, more will come out about Fauci and Gates in regards to Coronavirus, Big Pharma, and vaccines/therapeutic drugs.  They are an evil partnership that is not to be trusted.

You cannot imagine the evil of the people we are fighting.  The globalists have a satanic child trafficking network and their entire evil cabal is being dismantled by Trump.  3,000 kids were saved in the raids in San Antonio alone.  There is much I could tell you about their crimes against children and who is involved (many famous and powerful people), but it is a deep dark hole and it is not necessary to go down it here.  Believe me, you don’t want me to.  Some truths are just too dark and it will be your choice to know or not.  You can do the research if you choose, but just know the traitors in the new world order worship the evil one, they are trying to build his one world government, and they hurt and kill kids.  They must be stopped!

“But the wicked are like the tossing sea,

which cannot rest,

whose waves cast up mire and mud.

“There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.”

Isaiah 57:20-21

Jesus is coming back soon and I am fighting hard against evil.  I came to Jesus in 1996, but God woke me up to the new world order and how to fight them in 2013.  I have been fighting against their plans for a one world government ever since.  The Lord has called me to fight this war and increase my role in supporting my fellow American Patriot brothers and sisters, President Trump, and the Patriot military intelligence operatives with him.  I love my country with all my heart and I’m not going to let the evil worshiping globalists take it!  We know someday prophecy will be fulfilled and the rise of the antichrist and his government will eventually happen, but that doesn’t mean we stop fighting against it.  We fight the good fight until our last breath for God’s glory!

I will still be writing on my blog, but it will not be every day.  I might not be spending as much time here on WordPress for awhile, but I am always available to chat on comments or by email.  I miss reading your blogs.  I will continue engaging in the social media side of WordPress with you all and I always enjoy the sweet fellowship with my brothers and sisters in Christ, but I must fight the battles he wants me to fight right now and keep preaching the Gospel where He sends me.  It is a great honor to preach the Gospel and fight for my country at the same time!

This blog was never about me.  It is about Jesus and it’s all for Jesus!  There are over 500 posts on this blog leading people to Jesus and teaching God’s Word, and I will continue to do that here on my blog, Twitter, and everywhere I go.  I hope you join me in the fight on Twitter!  We are in a spiritual war (Ephesians 6) and just like I told you in my post “A Dire Warning For 2020 Part 2: Coronavirus, Vaccines, & Digital ID,” we are fighting the evil one.  Please pray for me and pray for the Patriots fighting for righteousness in America!

Today was also the National Day of Prayer and it was beautiful to hear people praying to Jesus from the White House Rose Garden today.  I pray the Lord pours out healing and spreads revival!  May He give us righteous victory over evil and may He open people’s minds and hearts to the truth!

Screenshot_2020-05-07 (4) Ryan Callahan on Twitter Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, fo[...]

Jesus is our only hope and salvation!  We must keep fighting evil with the mighty sword of God’s Word, and never give up!  Be strong in the grace of God and ask Him to fan into flame the gifts He has given you and use you for His glory!  Here I am Lord, send me!

Grace and peace to you all!

P.S.

I started writing this post a few hours before midnight on May 7th.  It is now after midnight on May 8th.  I am going to bed now.  I will see comments and catch up with most of you in the morning.  I will be up in about 5 or 6 hours.  God bless you all!

Happy May 1st, 2020!

Hello friends and family and God bless you all!  Well, we made it through April!  Happy May 1st, 2020!  I haven’t written a post in a few days because, as you know from my last post, our great state of Colorado reopened on Sunday April 26th and we are no longer under quarantine, so I’ve been outside taking care of the lawn.  The seasons don’t stop, so welcome to spring!

IMG_7108
Our backyard. I took all these photos this morning.

I did the first mow on Tuesday and I turned on our sprinkler system.  The mower started right up and did a great job, which was very nice.  Actually felt pretty good mowing the lawn again.  It’s fun using my battery powered trimmer too.  Unfortunately, the sprinklers were not so easy.  There is a leak coming from one of the valves inside the main box.  That’s the way it goes sometimes, but it will be fixed soon.  The system still works, which is a blessing.

IMG_7121
Steps leading up from our backyard. P.S. I built our gate.

Inside the sprinkler box

A couple years ago, I had to replace one of the solenoid valves (black things on top with wires coming out).  I worked landscaping summer jobs for many years, so I have some sprinkler repair training, but I had never done that before.  I watched a YouTube video and it worked out great.  That is my wiring job with the newer connectors in the middle.  The leak is coming from the main valve on the upper right (the circular gray piece).  That is a bit more complicated than changing a solenoid.  Looks like I would have to disconnect some pipes and more, so I’m having the landscape company tackle this one.  I will watch and learn this time.

During spring clean up I cut back all the native grasses, rake the yard and landscaped areas, prune trees if needed, then do a nice mow and trim and finish with the sprinklers.  I did work like that for many upscale homes and businesses in the Chicago area back in the 90s.  It is knowledge and experience that has been very useful in owning and caring for my own property.  Saves us a lot of money too!  A spring clean up like that would have cost us at least $250 to $300.  All it costs is my body being sore for a few days, which is also why I haven’t written since April 26th.  I will get back to publishing posts more regularly and reading everyone’s blogs very soon.

May 1st is also Law Day, U.S.A, and we show respect to our nation, our Constitution, and our laws by flying our nation’s beautiful flag.  I am very thankful for our country, our laws, and our rights, and I am a Patriot who stands ready and willing to defend our country against enemies both foreign and domestic.  God bless America, and may we be a light and blessing to all the Nations of the world!

IMG_7128

The kids only have two weeks of school left, and we are all looking forward to summer.  2020 has been a very unique and challenging year so far.  I am praying the Lord will bring great healing and spread revival through the world!

Do not be discouraged or dismayed!  God is in control and He is bringing peace to this time of worldwide trouble.  Many states are opening back up here in America and it won’t be long before our country and every country is back to work.  Keep praying and never give up hope!

“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 pray everyone has a blessed Friday and weekend!

“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.”

Colorado Is Open For Business

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!

IMG_7106
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!

IMG_7103
Road leading up to our neighborhood

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.”

“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!

500th Blog Post For Jesus

IMG_7100
Photo by my wife, Me grillin’ bison burgers yesterday

After blogging since August 10th of 2018, today will be my 500th post.  I figure that is some kind of blogging milestone, so I wanted to celebrate it and give praise to God.  This whole blog is all about Jesus and helping people come to know Him, and I pray many people get saved reading my blog!  I pray the Lord uses it for His glory and bears fruit through it!  I am simply one of His servants dispensing a gift (called evangelism) that Has been given to me.  May His will be done!

WordPress gave me this badge along with a message of congratulations right after I published this post, so I’m adding it now.  Thanks WordPress!

500th Post

It is a great honor to be used by the Lord and all the glory goes to Him for building this blog!  May He continue to use me as He sees fit and write through me what He wants to say from sharing the Gospel to end times warnings and everything in-between!  This blog is all about helping people come to know Jesus, helping people understand the Bible, ministering to a lost and hurting world, and speaking truth to power.  It is about hope, new beginnings, grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love, and I pray you find that in Jesus!  People are held prisoner by their fear of death and they need real hope.  I’m here to tell you that Jesus can take that fear and He alone can deliver you from sin and death and save 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

“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

The choice is yours.  We receive Jesus by faith.  God has made one way to Heaven and that Way is through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.  His Blood was shed for our sins and no one else has ever died for our sins.  Do you want your sins forgiven?  Do you want to go to Heaven?  Then believe in Jesus and you will be saved!

“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

“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

“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 10:28-30

Upon believing in Jesus, you will be filled with the Holy Spirit, which is God’s seal on you guaranteeing your salvation.  We are saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus alone, not by works.  We cannot earn our salvation through good works.  We are not good; we are sinful and we need a Savior.  There is no boasting in Heaven.  We must be born again by the Spirit of God to be saved and share in His holiness.  It is the Holy Spirit who empowers us to be holy and have the strength to serve God and leave our lives of sin, and we can only receive the Holy Spirit through faith in Jesus.  The good works we do after accepting Jesus are done by the power of the Holy Spirit in obedience to God for His glory, not to earn salvation.  It is the Blood of Jesus alone that covers our sin, and that is eternal forgiveness we never deserved and could never earn!

“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

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

“In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”

John 3:3

“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.  Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.”

Galatians 5:22-24

“Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them.  And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.”

1 John 3:24

Today is the day of salvation, and none of us are promised tomorrow!  Make peace with God today!  If you don’t know Jesus, may God have mercy on you and open your heart to His love this very moment!  God loves you and He does not want you to perish!  He wants to give you eternal life!

“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

“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 3:23

Good morning everyone!  It is a beautiful chilly spring day here in Colorado.  I am glad it’s Friday!  It’s been a rough week, but God is good and faithful to always bring peace to the troubles.  I just wanted to do a short post today giving praise to God for a new day and thanking Him for His mercy and grace.

“Because of the LORD’s great love we are

not consumed,

for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.”

Lamentations 3:22-23

I took all these photos this morning at 8:54 a.m. MT.  We were blessed with a real nice rain last night and the Rocky Mountain air was a crisp 43 degrees early this morning.  Supposed to get to 55 today, then be in the high 70s next week.  I am thankful for the changing seasons and I am thankful that God is in control and we can trust Him.  Just as He controls the clouds and weather, He is in control even now during this time of trial on earth.  The Lord has a purpose in all things and nothing is too hard for the Lord.

“This is the day the LORD has made;

let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalm 118:24

Thank You Jesus for being so merciful, loving, forgiving, compassionate, gracious, and good to us!  Please spread revival and healing through the world and deliver us from evil!  May Your will be done in all things!

Always remember: Jesus loves you!  Jesus died for you!  Jesus Saves!

Grace and peace to you 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.”

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!
