Well…I’ve been hinting at something big coming up and it has begun today. This is my first interview to the world about my Keto journey and I feel blessed by God to be able to share this with you.

Brian Williamson (Creator of all of the Ketovangelist brands that I share with you and Danny Vega the rockstar of fitness, powerlifting, and sculpting the body gave me the honor of interviewing me and I’ve been bursting to share it with you and here it is.

Praise God that He answers prayer as it was Him who brought me to this way of life so if I didn’t say it in the interview due to nervousness all glory goes to Him!! Be blessed and I also want to thank Chris Duckett for all of the follow up and taking care of any questions that I had.

Be blessed an I pray that you enjoy it…more to come soon!

The problem here (referring to the Democrat agenda for California in the attached link) for the “Christian” who continues to vote Democrat “no matter what” is that this mindset represents the national leadership of the Democrat party and they keep it under wraps because they know that if their voters knew the full extent of what they truly believe then they would be in trouble so they put on a “we are a friend to the Christian” poker face in public nationally while behind the scenes they do everything that they can to weaken Christianity.

What I’m saying here refers ONLY to what I a former Democrat know from personal experience and does NOT infer any allegiance with or emboldens a response that I view the Republican leadership much better.

What I’m saying is that this leadership to include President Obama whether you like it or not approves of this agenda to silence Christianity or any form of conservatism while pretending to be tolerant when the unbiased and sans partisan individual that is not blinded by party loyalty can plainly see the truth.

California has ALWAYS been the “bell cow” leading the Democrat party’s agenda and since that has not changed I fail to see how any Christian that confers allegiance to this part cannot understand that they are in affect when casting a ballot for this agenda that they are casting a ballot for their actual belief to practice their faith as guaranteed by the Constitution and it is THEM that are doing it to themselves because they blindly trust this leadership because they SAY that they are for minorities, etc.,

Again, before I get any comments that I have to delete inferring that I’m pushing a Republican agenda know that as a Christian Independent Constitutionalist that I view BOTH parties with great disdain as they BOTH have strayed far from living up to their sworn oath to “support and defend the Constitution” of this country.

Most of what I see coming from both parties these days are designed to work around the tenants of the Constitution so that these mostly career politicians can accrue and hold onto power while keeping the “masses” who are trying to live daily, ordinary lives unware of their wealth-grabbing, in-Constitutional ways.

I digress….

Lastly, it has been the Democrat agenda to remove any and everything “God” from any and everything that we do one little step at a time and again…I am what I refer to as an “ole skool Democrat” and though I wasn’t a Christian back then I was always baffled that so many of the policies that were presented by the National Party headquarters was so “anti-Christian” in nature and it was ONLY about 20 years later after I gave my life to Christ that my eyes were opened to the truth (not only Democrats but ALSO ALL politicians and political agendas but I castigate Democrats here because nationally they continue to lie about their agenda and fool their constituents. Repubs do too TBF).

I shared the following with a friend today who is doing their best to live life on a healthier plane yet sometime the fear can be overwhelming. As I started talking about some strategies I felt God speak into my heart the following and wanted to share with everyone who may be going through something similar. THOUGH this is geared towards a person who shares my faith the tenant of it can be applied in most faiths or even in a person who considers themselves agnostic, stoic, or “other” so please don’t write it off just because it’s Christian in nature. My prayer is that it blesses or if you are not a believer helps.

Comment: “Don’t let the fear get to you. The enemy knows that you will be more effective for God’s Kingdom and your loved ones so he uses the fear of change, the fear that you can’t do it, the fear of missing out on your favorite sugary/carbohydrate foods (that are slowly killing you), the fear that you won’t be supported by your loved ones, and the fear that you will fail.

He uses them because he knows that we don’t equate taking the opportunity to heal our bodies with whole food that God provides us with strengthening our relationship with God but that is a lie since 1 Cor 6: 19-20 states:

“19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

This is not meant to condemn us but to let us know that along with strengthening our spiritual body with study, prayer, fasting, and spending time with God we also should do all that we can to strengthen/heal our mortal bodies as best as we can and the evidence is becoming more and more clear that food can do just that in the absence of sugar/carbohydrates.

President Trump is not keeping you from walking out your front door and helping your neighbor.

He’s not keeping you from feeding he homeless.

As far as I know he is not keeping you from visiting hospitals to encourage the sick, or help the widow, or be a mentor to the fatherless child.

You can still get out and help someone today and if you are a Christian you are blessed to be in a country that you have the ability to do your “real” job and that is to spread the message of the salvation and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

My message today is that though we have the right to discourse on politics whether the president is Trump, Bush, Obama, or whomever let’s not get so blinded by politics that we lose our spiritual eyes that open our hearts that moves our feet in God’s direction to help others and more importantly save souls for the Kingdom of God.

If you are a Christian who is vocal about anything “racial” that is directed towards your race but seem to lose your voice when your race is racial towards other races know that you are a hypocrite and are more aligned with THIS world than you are with Jesus Christ.

This doesn’t mean that we ignore any injustice directed at a particular race. What it does mean is that we don’t ignore the wrongs that the race that we have been categorized to be a part of by this world’s system commit either and we should be just a vociferous in calling said wrongs out within our own racial construct as we do others.

Having said that my prayer is THEN that the “Christian” after accomplishing a level of growth to be able to do that will THEN grow further to realize that “race” and all of the issues that come with it is worldly in nature and will never be solved by “man” and can/will only be dealt with righteously when the blood of Jesus Christ is applied to the construct so much to the point that we all open our eyes and the only color that we see of each other is red.

Then and only then will we see each other in the proper context that Christ died for and that is for us (the church) to stop allowing the world and its ways of handling race to influence us (His people) and keep us from handling it with His wisdom, compassion, mercy, forgiveness, and love.

Pray for one another, live for one another, do what is right, shin what is wrong, and in all things put the teachings of Jesus ahead of the leanings of this world that is ruled by satan.

As a black man who has in the past been fierce in the defense of everything “black” I still work hard to help my historical people to advance beyond the “sins of others” against us in the past.

However, as I gave my life to Christ and started practicing forgiveness and shunned the desires of retribution and “repayment” for the wrongs against my race much like the wisdom that i saw in what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did when faced with violence and evil I noticed that overtime I began to love (much like Christ did me when I was His “enemy) the “enemy” that I was taught to hate growing up and gained the “peace of Christ Jesus” which opened my eyes to who my TRUE ENEMY was…satan the devil.

So in this black history month I leave you with one important thing that was the catalyst for me to write this this morning as I studied His Word.

I urge you Black man/Black Woman and for that matter ANY “man”/“woman” to stop focusing on what the proverbial “they” have done to you and “your people” (if you are a Christian your “race” is no longer black, white, or “other”) but instead focus on what HE has done for you and focus on what HE did when encountering His enemies (us) and that is to forgive them, love them (even if you have to learn to), and be willing to open your eyes to the realization that the enemy has had you tricked all along into believing that another race was your enemy (this goes for ANY race or culture who has been wronged by another) when it is NOT the people of the offense that was the enemy but the spirit of the anti-Christ…satan that is the enemy.

We are one people under Christ Jesus and there can be no division of your heart is truly bent towards Jesus (paraphrase of Galatians 3:28).

As I lay on my bed one day in tears not long after giving my life to Jesus wondering if I could do this “Christian” thing God for the first time spoke to and challenged me “son, you need to give up your black pride because you cannot fully worship and serve me until you do” I realized that I had a choice to either follow Jesus or to continue following my black pride and I think by the tenant of this writing we know which I chose.

As I view my life through the prism of time and look back on those early days in Christ Jesus and have gained wisdom from my walk with God i can plainly see why God made me choose between my black pride and Him.

You see my black pride in essence was a “god” that I placed above almost all else and thus it was an idol that often ruled my thoughts about others and affected how I relate and react to the “world”.

Once I cast that “god” aside for the love of Jesus the hate, the bitterness, the accusatory tone, disappeared and that void was filled up with the love of Jesus and I haven’t nor will I ever turn back.

This does not mean that I cast my desire to continue working to allow God to use me to helps uplift the black community who has been done so wrong in this country but what it does is allow me to help/uplift them as I help/uplift ALL of God’s children without the “black first” mentality which God has clearly shown me is anti-Christ and if one reads his/her Bible there is no other conclusion that can be made on the issue as only “pride” can make one come to a different one.

Be blessed and have a awesome time of learning during this Black History month.

2 John 8-10 (NIV):

8 Watch out that you do not lose what we[a] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them.”

During my quiet time God showed me how in “today’s church” that we compromise and conform to this world far to often to keep “peace” (it’s a false peace because Jesus is the only true peace), to keep our governmental tax exempt status, to keep from being litigated against, to keep from being accused of bigotry, or to not offend people.

The truth is that we are an imperfect people that God chooses to use to spread the message of salvation of our perfect Jesus and lately many “churches” are preaching “a different Jesus” that is found within the Holy Bible.

This false jesus (false so no BIG J!) that is being taught…often in churches that many of us attend is “okay” with or gives sin a pass, approves of current feministic or chauvinistic teachings being taught the church that are NOT found in God’s Word, approves of the murder of His created handi-work via abortion, approves of disrespect towards our national leaders depending on which party they are affiliated with or which “color” they are, that it is okay to “accuse” someone today of things that their ancestors did, that it is okay to align against His chosen people Israel with nations/peoples who do not serve our God, and among other things allow other “teachings” (people from other faiths or within our midst) to stand in our pulpits and preach a foreign message than the one that we are taught is the truth.

This should not be dear brothers and sisters so let’s be encouraged today to repent of this sin of allowing sin and untruthful messages to be given access to the world through our pulpits and/or out of our mouths.

Let’s ask forgiveness today of the Lord for walking in agreement with the world on issues to simply “keep the peace” when Jesus (in love but most certainly ferociously) confronted these issues (and whether you like it or not) so that sinners, the church that they make up, and the world has a chance to walk eternally in TRUE PEACE with Him.

He loves you today and so do I!!

Be blessed, have a Jesus-filled day, and If I don’t speak to you again this year via the blog have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
