I will start at year 2000 I was a Youth Pastor and thought nothing could ever go wrong. My first mistake I took my eyes off of God and put them on myself, but not at first it was not until 2004 when I hit a rough road I was married with a step son who I still take care of and love dearly, and another one would be coming soon. The problem was more than just me it was where I lived, who I was living with and soon my spiritual life began to take such a dive. When you are around sin for so long it will affect you and it did I stopped going to church, just quit because I was tired of fighting with my ex-wife now about what church we would go to. Yes when I walked away from God my marriage failed, my health went downhill I could no longer work IT GOT HARD FAST.
Some may say that is life NO listen to me when you put your faith in God it will work out but when you try and take control of things you are tying his hands. That is what I did. I began to drink not a little but a lot spending $300.00 bucks in a single night was nothing I was looking for anything and everything searching for something to make me happy. The thing is I knew what would make me happy I just didn't want to go there again I felt like such a failure I walked away from God!
Than when I felt like I was on top of the world my world came tumbling down I drove my new truck that I paid for with cash right into a wall totaling it..... I am told that when the police got there I was sitting on the tailgate drinking a bottle of Jack Daniels. side note I do not even remember driving I remember leaving the bar seeing cops on one side of the road so I went another way 2 hours later I am in a wreck axel under truck broken engine pushed inside hit so hard the back seat flew off the back of the truck, and yet I am still alive. Yes it took me seeing me leaving my son's without a daddy to wake me up.
It has been a long hard road with a lot of speed bumps but God got me back on his plan.... I am telling this to let you know that true Christians do not expect you to be perfect no one is I was a pastor and I failed but the important thing is I am working for the Lord again trying to help those who think the church will judge them. If you are being judged go to another church! Get into a church that preaches the BLOOD OF JESUS! Without the blood we would be condemned to a devils hell. PEOPLE listen I have heard from the time I was 2 years old that Jesus was coming soon. Guess what he is 34 years closer to coming! I can tell you with every fiber of my being every breath I take Jesus will be coming soon.
I ask only this so many say there’s no God because they can't see or hear him but I can tell you I hear his still small voice I feel him and I know there is a God the King of King and Lord of Lords. Do not turn and look the other way I promise time is running out!
I sinned and turned away from God and I can tell you it was the worst thing I ever done but if my mistake can help someone else from making the same mistake than I am glad to share it!
I will even give my number if you need prayer call me 1(757)237-7022

When is too late, by the time you finish reading this it's too late, the message of the cross is something that has been put aside. It is time for the Christians not only in America but the world to stand up we have allowed are rights to be taken away, not only buy the government but we are allowing the very nature of Christianity to be taken away.
Look at it this way when we have vote for are President if you choose not to cast your vote than you do not have the right to speak against what the president is or has been doing. The same thing with the church, why complain if we didn’t speak out to oppose what was happening.
But I have good news we can speak out now I feel America is about to have an explosion within the community of Christ believers, when is to late we are not promised tomorrow so if you are not saved ask Jesus to save you; The price was paid its free claim it come to the cross its time.
I have been asked before what my faith is here is my answer “MAN MADE RELIGION GOD MADE SALVATION”
I do not have a religion, man created religion and we have so many Christians out there who have a religion but do not have God. So before you say oh my God, here is what I have I have Jesus ”Man created religion God made salvation” I have salvation I am saved, sanctified and filled with the Holly Ghost. I have made my share of mistakes but without those mistakes I would not be the man I am today. God humbled me and I am grateful, I would not be here if he didn’t.
Not many churched like this statement some feel it goes against their bylaws I am sorry I speak the truth bylaws will not save you. The blood of Jesus, the Cross, the fact the Jesus died for my sins and yours is what saves us, and faith just a little bit of faith.
When is to late here is my answer don’t test it tomorrow is not promised to be honest you are not promised the next second so please listen ask Christ into your hearts. Don’t wait.

We as Christians need to return to the cross, the cross is not just timber put together it is a symbol of the alter where Christ was slain for all of are sins. Christians have been on the side lines for so long we have lost sight of what the cross represents, the cross is more than just history it’s are future through the cross there is a river where there is salvation, healing, life, strength, wisdom, joy, love, forgiveness all of this is in the river. The cross where Jesus gave his life and his blood was spilt for us and his body was broken for us TO GAIN EVERLASTING LIFE!
We need to get back to the cross America is going downhill fast and I believe the biggest reason is because Christians have allowed so much sin in we have stopped speaking out against everything, America was founded on Christianity and now Christians cannot even pray in public but as we see in New York the Government is allowing Muslims to stop traffic and pray in the middle of the street because that is the hour in which they have to pray. I will say this I thank God I don’t have to wait for a certain hour to pray I can pray anytime any hour to my God! Here is another fact schools across America are changing so Muslims can have their religious beliefs kids playing football are waking up in the early mornings to practice because Muslims during the day have to have their freedoms to worship you may ask what is wrong with this well what happened to Christians rights? Do you think this would be done for us? We need to get back to the cross we need preachers to stop and listen to the spirit of God we need Holly Ghost filled ministers to preach the Cross, to preach the Blood, to let sinners know there is either Heaven or Hell! It’s time to stop playing church and it’s time that churches around the world come together in the name of God and stand up not for riches and not for personal glory but for fruit Paul said it’s not that I desire a gift but I desire fruit that will measure to your account.
