Shut Up, Grow up Step Up and Do Our Job

Enough Already

Shut Up, Grow up Step Up


Shut Up, Grow up Step Up
knock it off
Shut Up!

It is time we shut up, grow up  step up, this applies to us all. Left, right, middle its time.

Republicans and Conservatives have a right to gloat a little 8 years of a President that we really did not like or trust  is over. Don’t be hateful and forgive if needed.

Liberals who do not understand the electoral college or a democratic republic ignore the media and learn. Don’t get your news or opinions from talk shows and do not trust the media, research as much as you can yourself.

Grow Up!

Mocking  the losers is good release, but yes we have to now get to the business at hand.

Those who are so upset that they are not functional, that lectured the right before the election to accept the outcome stop.

Step Up!


The time has come to step up, our freedoms demand our participation, not all have taking an oath, but by enjoying these freedoms you have agreed to support all of them and for everyone equally


Job One

After Shut Up, Grow up Step Up we know need to get to work. We the people, left, right, middle we have a lot of work to do. We must protect our place as the real leaders of this Republic.

Benjamin Franklin famously said this in response to a question ( I borrowed it from the link above) what form of government do we have – a republic or a monarchy?  He replied, “A republic if you can keep it.”

We need to stop thinking our rights, our Constitution don’t fit todays world that it is a “living document in need of update, WRONG!

No need to go over all of our rights but the first two are firmly in our control and intended to give We the people the Power as intended. Study it,  here is a great free online college course that everyone should consider,

The Wrap Up

Elections are rough and ugly, even as a Christian I sometimes go over the top. I would always encourage people to seek Christ, but in Christianity it is a choice. It does not change my love for you as my neighbors in the world.

These ideas don’t require you to be saved, just human.

  • Don’t trust the Internet or the Media Study.
  • Respect everyone else’s First Amendment Rights, after all if we all agreed we would not need to protect freedom of speech.
  • Hold the government accountable and don’t expect free stuff, the hidden price tag is your political soul.
  • It’s ok to judge people, but do it by their character, their actions not by their race, religion or country of origin.
  • Always remember that we the people must never be divided, we can disagree but in the end walk away from those leaders that promote division.

May God bless you all, our Country and our President Elect, time to move on.

Christian American I am Both and Proud of Each

Christian American

I am a Christian FIRST then and an American in that order. As a Christian American my vote came down to some main issues. Late term abortions, Second Amendment Rights (and all rights) and the fact that this country needs a new direction. Obama has failed America he did however change us, for the worse.

American pride, national pride is something we should celebrate. We could spend hours going over our mistakes, we are a young country. Instead I will celebrate our advances and victories. We have made large strides in civil rights, something Mr. Obama seems to forget. There our counties today that have freedoms they never would have had with out an America. This list to could go on, but I will end with the fact that founded or not, based on media lies or backroom orders from the DNC you get to protest.

Presidential Prayer

Illegal is Illegal

America must have borders, Mr. Trump our President Elect is not against immigration, he is against ILLEGAL immigration. We are a nation of laws, if you don’t believe that how can you be an American?


This statement best sums up what We expect, no Demand from those who wish to come here. There is no need to through-out our old heritage but we MUST become Americans.  Your protest against Mr. Trump #TumpProtest on this issue are unfounded and your chants Un-American. Changing the name to undocumented does not make it legal. Keep in mind it is the same Laws we hold dear that allow you to protest PEACEFULLY.

A word for BLM

The Black Life’s Matter group is a home grown terrorist hate group. The sad thing is there are people who march with them that are condoning their violence and are to ignorant to know the difference.

As a Christian and an American I know that every life matters, even that baby so many kill without regard. Christ died on that Cross for everyone of us. As a Christian I also know, without a doubt I am a sinner, I have failed without Christ as a man to reach the glory of God. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

My sins and your sins will be judged the same, if you are saved like me they will be forgiven, if not your sins will not be forgiven. This is not predicated on race, God loves me and you so much he sent his Son the Lord Jesus Christ to die for all of us.

A BLM leader was set to be on stage will HRC had she won, and the BLM people have been to the White House, a few times,  not only do I disagree with their tactics, but I condemn these two leaders for their support of such tactics.

Come Together

We will get through this, Mr. Trump is not perfect and I will keep him honest when need be we all should. Media needs to start doing their job, not leaning towards a party but back towards the people.  We are Americans and we will once again be the shinning city on the hill.

Hate will not get us there, but love compassion and a clear understanding of that the Government works for us.


God Bless

Congratulations President Elect Trump

Congratulations President Elect Trump


Finally the election is over, I honestly despise the process, it is time that we as Americans get back our pride and our nation, I don’t think what we have seen over the last 20+ years was what our founders intended.Congratulations President Elect Trump.

Pray for our leaders, Pray for Trump

1 Timothy 2:1-4

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth

This prayer should be followed up with action, this Nation can once again be the shining city on the hill, our leaders cannot do that without or prayers or our actions.

There are many that will be upset, scared even mad, trust me I have been on the losing end of elections for the last 8 years. We must continue to use our First Amendment when we disagree, we live in a nation where we can do that, praise God. What we cannot do is act out in violence which sadly some have threatened, the time to band together is now.

Keep our Leaders Honest

Mr. Trump made a promise that an overwhelming majority of us agreed with, drain that swamp we call Washington DC. DC has not worked for we the people in many, many years. It is time that they become a government Of the People and For the People, now is our chance.

Mr. Trump was not my first choice, but he does fit the mold I dreamed of, a true outsider, one of the PEOPLE.

Our job is now to hold them to it, end the corruption, not except it, push them to work for us. Yes they have a lot of work to do, but so do we.

God Bless you all and God Bless America.

One Way, One Word

The Way

Power in the Empty Cross

There is only one way to be saved, born again or to experience salvation it is through the Grace of Christ.  Accepting that He died for all of our sins, and was resurrected on the third day. You do not need to be baptized, otherwise the thief on the cross that Christ saved did not go to heaven as Christ promised, and in affect you are saying Christ lied.

Luke 23:40-43

  40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

  41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.

42  And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

43  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

I could go on, and I will not do not and will never accept the books added by other religions, nor will I entertain the opinion of those who feel Baptism is a must for salvation let alone a precursor. I will and invite intelligent questions and input, I use and quote the KJV and would ask you use the same if you have questions or input.

One Word

The Word og God

The Bible has roughly 40 authors or 2000 years or so, some had the benefit of the past written, others did not yet when read and referenced as written there are no contradictions, lies or even hate as some claim. It is the One Word.

False prophets are not new, Islam was started by a false prophet, their “holy book” makes up for it’s contradictions by dating and suggesting that the newer out weigh the older, sometimes.

Other major religions add books claiming to be found and left by Christ himself, yet these books often contradict the one true word of God.

A Quick Note

Again, on this subject I will not argue, questions are welcome, and other then my direct  reference to Islam I will not argue for or against your religion not that kind of post. I will say this once and once only Islam is a political movement that directly contradicts our nations laws, and wants to set up their own, sorry no religious  freedom for you. But that is another post.

The Day After November 9th, Will Division Reign?

The Day After

We will not stand

The day after election day 2016 we will be in mostly the exact same place we are today, divided.  Division already at an all time high will be pushed further to the brink, moving this country in my opinion in  acts of civil disobedience beyond anything we have ever see. I would not be surprised to se us break down into complete anarchy or even civil war. The scary part? is does not matter who wins. Nether Trump or Hillary have ran on any kind of unity platform, from the name calling between the candidates to the extreme hate of supporters on both sides for their counter parts.


Obama, perhaps the most divisive President in history at least lied when he ran and pretended while campaigning to be everyone’s candidate. The Clintons are well known for the ability to hold grudges and skirt the law, I have no don’t that her administration will attack the constitution , Christians all of our rights with a special interest in taking our gun rights away.


Trump is a big unknown, in full disclosure I support him, I am a typical right leaning independent, I will not be rioting just because Hilary wins, as messed up as the systems is that is not what you do, however BLM (Hate Group), the “new black panther party” and the Soros supported occupy thugs are violent and based on the leaked e-mails so are the Hilary people. So even if Trump tries to run from the middle and give everyone a seat I can totally see the Obama/Hillary hate machine starting violent civil unrest and forcing the hand of typically calm patriots to defend against such actions.

The People

ca. 1980-2001
We the People


Finally it will come down to we the people, we know without a doubt the racism has increased in the last 8 years, the current party in power has used it to promote its agenda by keeping the people separated. This has continued into the election and to the supporters.

I like Trump so I am a Racist , If you like Hillary you are a socialist. These statements are NOT universally true in fact the far right and left of each party is really the minority in my view, but between the media helping full the racism and the Obama hate groups out in full swing those of in the middle do not get heard, we do not matter. That battle is lost we are a house divided and on the 9th no matter who wins unless we unite we will fall, our Constitutional Republic will be gone and the only winners will be the 1% and the ruling class. The day after we the people need to stand as one.

The Media


Kudos to the media they have fueled the anti-American movement for years, they love socialism. You can see it in their ads, interviews they don’t even pretend anymore. What really makes me wonder is how so many of us are to stupid to see what they have done, and really worse yet what they have done to themselves.

The First Amendment has been hack away little by little, again you may like it, for now but sooner or later it will be your speech they limit. Hate speech in my opinion is a made up word the 1A is not intended to protect  speech everyone agrees with, why would we even need the right? The problem with calling everything “hate speech” is in doing so you prevent legitimate debate, and it miss proportionality  affects religion.

As an example the Bible I follow is clear on homosexuality, it is a sin. That same Bible also tells me that to hate a person is a sin, and to hate them for a sin? well that’s just hypocrisy. The media however calls this hate speech, I suppose the media and politicians hate the word sin because it includes lying and stealing that said as a Christian I to sin and fall short of the glory of God, with these facts in hand hate speech becomes instead my ability to worship my God as I am commanded. I will not get into the cake baking argument but preachers should have no obligation to perform a ceremony that they are taught is a sin.

But I am trailing off, in short the media one of the only companies where their product is protected by our bill of rights has become blatantly dishonest and Bias, a fact that should worry us all. The day after the media could make our break us as a nation.



First and foremost I want to be wrong, if Trump or Hillary wins I want us to once again to start to unite, it is not impossible. Hillary could be using Obamas ability to give a speech and mobilize the vote and may actually try to unite the country. Trump when you listen to the entirety of his speech’s is not a bigot , between media snippets, loaded questions and his tendency to think everyone gets what he is trying to say. He may through his actions prove to be able to unite, something Obama has not only failed at, he has failed intentionally.

As I stated I am for Trump, his abortion stance and first and second amendment rights stances best fit my believes, the fact that Bush and Romney hate him is a plus.

In the end it is we the people who need to take control because without that not only will the winner fail, we might just lose our country. Besides the end of commercials I will be praying for the day after.

The Sermon on the Mount and Todays Church Part 2

This is a continuation of part one, if you have not read it please do

Matthew 5-7New King James Version (NKJV)

As taking from


Believers Are Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Christ Fulfills the Law

17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

Believers Are Salt and Light

Particular in these end times believers need to be actively spreading the word of God. Doing so can be active, pastoring, ministering or by example (and all 3). Many of the televised and mega churches are part of the apostate church. They do not preach God’s Word unless they can make it all positive, or marketable. In so many ways, the salt has lost it’s flavor.

We also have many undercover Christians, a question you should ask yourself is , if accused of being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you?

Christ Fulfills the Law

Christ death and resurrection fulfilled prophecy and brought us into the age of Grace, it is by Grace we are saved, but as we see in the verse above, the law did not simply disappear. In many ways as we continue on we will see that the Law was further defined by Christ and I would argue made it harder. Think about sin is a sin, but it is through Christ’s Grace we can be forgiven.  Though we are saved by his grace, it must be followed by works. If you become saved and then hide what good is it.

Works are very important for us as Christians, yes we are saved by Grace alone but works which involve witnessing, living in faith and trying to be more Christ like. We will also fall short of the glory of God, works with salvation will not get you into heaven.

As we approach the end of the Church age make sure that your light shines, that your salvation shows and that you follow Christ. Man kind will always let you down, and trying to live of the world and in the Word will not work.

The Sermon on the Mount and Todays Church

Matthew 5-7New King James Version (NKJV)


As taking from

The Beatitudes

1 And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

As the Church age comes to an end we need to not only spread the word of God to all any way we can. The Beatitudes from the sermon on the Mount are sometimes called the 8 Proverbs of the new Testament.  They are important to the end of the church age because they are a guide of sorts, simple yet deep in meaning.

As false prophets, apostasy and persecution are increasing it is important to remember what we as Christians are given by God.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Watching the news, see more and more church’s fall to apostasy it is easy to be down, to feel defeated yet Christ says that we get the Kingdom of Heaven. If we stay true to Christ those these things may bring us down God’s promise easily lifts the Christian Spirt, we GET the kingdom of heaven!

Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.

This verse has served us over many times of sadness, and although as the Church age ends we mourn, not for what will come for God promises us great things, but for those who will not hear his word, our comfort is his promise of what will come for use.

Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.

In the end times time Bible tells us that men will be boastful, as Christians we should be meek, not full of pride. It will not be the proud and boastful who will inherit the earth but the meek. And we will when Christ comes and sits on his thrown for 1000 years.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.

We long as Christians for righteousness , we see churches being burned and Christians being persecuted. We see abortions being accepted as a norm and sexual deviation. When the Church age ends and God calls us home, we will be filled.

We should be showing mercy to those who persecuted us, showing mercy that they may be saved, we will receive mercy for those actions when that time arrives.

Each blessing , each proverb will be fulfilled I would call these the 8 promises. Times will get harder I think before Christ returns. Persecutions that were once seen every but America are coming here, we have seen them already start and I would not be surprised if we see much worse before we are called home, we are promised that  we will not endure the tribulation, but I believe that what many Christians have seen in the world will find its way to us as the Church age ends.

We will pick up at verse 13 next time

When Storms Come

When Storms Come

When things are rough as they can get,

You feel there is no way;

You feel that God’s forsaken you,

You find it hard to pray. 

But God is there beside you as

you feel so tired and worn,

but He has promised you that he’ll

protect you in the storm

When times of difficulty comes

your faith will get you thru;

Remember God is your refuge,

He’ll never forsake you.

by Lucille B. Lein

Storms of Life

When Storms Come

Storms come into our lives in many forms, sickness, sorrow, pain, money or lack there of, many things can bring turmoil to our life, it is how we get through the storm that can help define us and bring us wisdom.

Faith, the same faith that brings us to Salvation in Christ can bring us through the storm.

Mark 11:23 ESV

Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.

What ever mountain life has put in your path remember that if we go to God in prayer with the same faith that is the foundation of our Salvation He will move that mountain we just have to ask.

I am also reminded though we are saved through faith in Christ we are sanctified through our works, sometimes when the storm comes how we weather it will be a testimony to those people who to not believe in Christ. Works is not trust doing good things or being charitable but how we live our every day life and the storms it can bring, those works though you may never see the results may help bring someone to Christ.

Lord help us as we go through our day, help us to remember that the storms that life sometimes brings can calmed by our faith and pray found in your word.

I pray Heavenly Father that if there is someone reading this, stuck in a storm who does not know you as their Saviour that they will know that You sent Your Son, to die on the cross for our sins and just as he rose on the third day and defeated death, so shall we if we trust and accept him.
