Prayer Warriors Needed: Witch Coven Planning Hexing Ceremony Against Kavanaugh

Fox News is reporting that a Witch Coven is planning a hexing ceremony on Saturday October 20, 2018 from 7:00-10:00 PM in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets to the event are being sold for $10.00 and proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

You may think I am joking, you may think there is no way this is real. I am not, and it is. In several articles I have written about the forces of Satan working right out in the open in America as no one blinks an eye. This is just the latest example.

If you are a Christian I am not sure what you believe about witchcraft. You may think magic isn’t real or it’s all just nonsense… but do you know what the Bible teaches? Witchcraft is a form of adultery that dabbles in dark arts and mysticism, and those who practice it arouse the anger of The All Mighty God:

2 Chronicles 33:6
6
 He sacrificed his children in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, practiced divination and witchcraft, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, arousing his anger.

Leviticus 19:31
31
 Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.

Revelation 21:8
8
 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually
immoral, 
those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

The warnings against witchcraft are peppered all through scripture and people need to take it very seriously. Now I am not suggesting we re-open the Salem Witch Trials, however we need to use our most powerful weapon against these evil forces… prayer.

While I think it would be amazing to have a group of strong Christians arrive at this event and rebuke the forces of darkness in the name of Jesus Christ, we must not limit ourselves or God’s power with geography.

Next Saturday on October 20th, from 7-10 PM would you join me in prayer rebuking any dark magic these witches conjure?

You do not have to pray for three hours, just pray during that time. Wherever you are in the world, it doesn’t matter. The power of prayer will crush the enemy when faithful Christians band together in faith.

So do me a favor, hit the like button if you want to join me in prayer. Next, share this article on your social networks and let’s see just how may Christians will join us.

Pray Warriors, where are you?

The Journey: Day 5 – My First Week Vegan

Five days ago on October 2nd, 2018 I posted an article about my food addiction. That day was set as my new sobriety date and it has been challenging, difficult and exciting these past few days. I just wanted to take a moment to update you on what I call “The Journey”.

I cannot believe I am about to say this, but I am FIVE DAYS into being VEGAN. This is INSANE. My younger self would not stop laughing if he heard this, and yet here I am. Take a look at the top shelf of my refrigerator! This bad boy was stocked with Pepsi, bacon and Little Debbie Snack cakes this time a week ago.

IMG_20181006_083309

I found a new friend while blogging named Ryan Callahan who was featured in Fellowship Friday #16. He wrote me a long heart felt letter after he read about my food addiction and offered great insight and tips… including some food products I might enjoy. I took your advice on the Earth Balance Ryan, good STUFF! Ryan doesn’t know this but God sent him to me that day. The night before I was praying heavily that God would help transform my tastes… to help me enjoy the healthy foods by body needed. That is precisely what Ryan had gone through and the Lord provided. Amen.

Now let’s recap the past 5 days of The Journey

My starting weight was 330 pounds. My destination is 220… which I want to reach within 12 months. As a short term objective, I plan to lose 30 pounds by November 1st, 2018. Every Thursday I meet with an addictions support group at my church when I am not working… and they have all agreed to be accountability partners with me.

My wife is my primary accountability partner and nutritional mentor. She has been guiding me and helping me with meals. As I stated in my article I am going cold turkey on nearly everything I used to consume, and starting from scratch. My diet is currently completely plant based, with little if any processed foods. If a package is required for my food I look for ingredient lists with three or four items max. Some times I cannot avoid items with more stuff, but it has been rare.

Most days I have not had many hunger pains, but I have MAJOR compulsions to pull into drive-thrus which are on every corner in the city I live. There have also been headaches and moments of withdrawal type symptoms.

As far as workouts I am using an elliptical machine, borrowed from a church brother, seven days a week, 20 minutes per session. Next week I plan to meet with my friend Johnny for a boxing workout. As time progresses I will be adding strength and conditioning exercises to my weekly routine. My body is really out of shape and I have led an inactive lifestyle for decades so I am sloooowwwwlly getting my body used to working out.

Next week I plan to get some blood work done to measure my cholesterol and other health indicators to see where I am really at… I will post that information when I have it.

Thank you for following me along The Journey… I am looking forward to tomorrow with excitement. Soon I will create a special section on this site for updates… but for now, it’s time to rest. Good night.

Fellowship Friday #16 Have You Met These Christian Bloggers?

Welcome back to Fellowship Friday, a weekly post on Stand Tall For Christ where I will share four Christian Bloggers with you I have met from around the world. It is my hope by doing this you will discover some of the amazing men and women doing the Lord’s work and spend time in fellowship with them. I want to encourage you to visit their blogs, follow their blogs, comment on their blogs, share their blogs and ultimately grow spiritually from the time you spend with them.

Here are this week’s bloggers:

Ryan Callahans Blog

Ryan Callahan’s Blog: ” I am an Independent Christian Author (One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life) and Freelance Writer, and most importantly I am an every day Minister to whomever God sends my way.  I am also a loving husband to my beautiful wife of 17 years, and a loving father to our two awesome kids!  My main goal with this blog is to help people come to know the Lord Jesus, help people understand the Bible and apply it in their every day lives, and minister to a lost and hurting world.”

Watch Daily at Wisdom Gates

Watching Daily at Wisdom’s Gate: “It started out as a young lad writing in little green books that I titled Ramblings Of An Overexcited Mind. These were thoughts on everything from religion and politics to relationships and stories, and just about whatever I was interested in. But once a friend suggested I started writing in earnest, my writings became more streamlined as thoughts on Bible, which have become known as Watching Daily At Wisdom’s Gates, from Proverbs 8:34.”

THa Christian Blogger

That Christian Blogger: “I am a Miracle of Grace and this is my personal blog, I am a Christian who is willing to preach the Gospel as the laborers are few. This blog will reach out via poetry, testimonies, Grace message, my personal life, Jokes and Truth”

She Found Grace

She Found Grace: “The world we live in teaches women to have hard hearts and weak minds, but God calls us to be of a quiet spirit to learn from The Holy Spirit and unmovable minds to teach our children and love our husbands regardless of what the world says. We’re not perfect and I won’t pretend to be. I’m a sinner in search of God’s grace and I’ve finally found it. Everyday life as a wife, mother’s and an online diary. ”


Thank you for taking the time to check out these Christian authors, all doing Kingdom Work in the name of Jesus… AMEN! Check back here every Friday for another installment of Fellowship Friday with all new bloggers from around the world.

I’m Coming Clean About My Secret Addiction

People who know me or those who see me regularly would not be surprised or shocked by what I am about to reveal to you… But I have been hiding an addiction for nearly my entire life. Until Now. Sadly it is an addiction that has been normalized in our society which makes it even easier to justify.

My name is Keith, and I am addicted to food.

You might be asking why people close to me wouldn’t be surprised… that’s because I have grown to over 330 lbs in weight with a belly that could hold triplets if I were a pregnant woman. As you know I am no stranger to addiction… as I have battled alcohol in the distant past and pornography in the not-so distant past. For some reason I have allowed my logical mind to stop operating when it comes to my food addiction.

What do I mean? Allow me illustrate…

Imagine I am addicted to crack cocaine. I get through a tough week, but manage not to use crack… then Sunday comes… FREE DAY! So I decide to smoke some crack to celebrate my week of crack-free living… plus it will help me get through the coming week.

Now take that paragraph above and insert ANY addiction. Smoking weed, Drinking, Gambling, Porn, Anger… ANY OTHER ADDICTION. When you do that, in every single case it sounds completely ludicrous. Completely insane. Except when it comes to food.

Moderation is the key they say (those food experts out there), you can eat anything you want as long as it’s in moderation. What a load of crap. Why can’t we smoke crack cocaine in moderation? Why can’t we watch a “little” porn here and there… in moderation? WHY? Because certain things in life are POISONOUS. Toxic. Dangerous. And as a Christian I know I should avoid those things at all costs.

And YES, the wrong foods are in that same category.

Please understand something… I am not trying to change your life, change your mind or change the world. I am simply sharing a personal struggle I have had my entire life. Not a week goes by that I don’t consume an entire large pizza myself… in most weeks, it’s multiple pizzas. I don’t drink alcohol any more but I do put down about six 2 liters of soda per week. Ice cream, junk cereal, burgers, tacos, fries… you name it. If it is bad for you and comes out of a drive-thru then it’s part of my regular diet.

Every day I wake up feeling like an 80 year old man in a 47 year old body… I cannot sleep on my stomach, it’s too big, I have to sleep on my side like a pregnant woman. I cannot tie my shoes without losing my breath. I cannot stand for long periods of time without aches and pains. I cannot buy clothes in normal  stores I need to shop at specialty big and tall man stores. I cannot sit comfortably in most places… like churches, airplanes, restaurant booths or movie theaters. God forbid If I ever have to defend my family, I would be all but useless.

Today is the day. October 2nd, 2018. My new sobriety date. The day I stop eating the wrong foods and start exercising. The day I reclaim my health. The day I start treating my food addiction… as a REAL ADDICTION.  With accountability partners, meetings, the whole thing. I will no longer allow myself to have a FREE DAY or to put poisons in my body. Today is a new day and I will be dedicating a serious amount of time on this blog in support of my journey.

Here is a photo that was just taken this past Sunday September 30, 2018
(that’s me in the white shirt)… the other folks are none other than Adam’s Road…

IMG_20180930_205455

You can see how far I have to go, but in the next week I will take some actual before photos and post some stats that are measurable once I visit my doctor and get some blood work results.

My brother in Christ Rudy is lending me his elliptical machine for as long as I need it! Praise God for good friends. Tomorrow I will be picking it up, I also have a next door neighbor who is going to let me use their Bowflex… you see how God removes every excuse I can come up with?

But let’s not kid ourselves, the only way to truly succeed is to change my eating habits once and for all. For that God has given me my beautiful wife who is pure Vegan. She has been gently nudging me towards that for years, but I have resisted every time. Today I stop resisting. Tomorrow I am off to the store to buy some vegetables, fruits and other items to get me started. She has been reading and studying this stuff for years, so I will just follow her expertise.

The next few weeks, probably months, will be very difficult and challenging for me… so I am outright asking for your prayers and encouragement. This will be the single biggest obstacle I have ever had to overcome… even compared to pornography. I will have to rely heavily on Jesus Christ to carry me through and I will have to be on my knees in prayer constantly.

The road will be the most difficult but the rewards will be INCREDIBLE. As with every other time I have faced an addiction in my life, I always try to pump myself up… I’ll probably be playing some Rocky music soon (that works every time). In all seriousness I want to thank you in advance for any prayers…. 225 lbs is the objective. That is over 100 lbs.

Let’s do this.

Adam’s Road Concert, 4 Cats and God’s Plan

Tonight was an amazing night of worship at my local church, as Adam’s Road performed live on stage… incredible music and powerful testimonies of how our wonderful God changes hearts and lives. All of the members were Mormons before Christ came into their lives… and VERY active in their faith.

Micah, Matt, Lila and Joseph all shared their stories, and their love for God in the form of music on stage tonight. There were few dry eyes in the entire worship center. I don’t want to share too much of their testimonies here, because I really want you to visit their site and watch them yourself.

But one testimony struck me right in the heart, and that was Joseph’s. He shared how 12 years ago he came to know Jesus Christ and out of Mormonism, how his entire family is still lost spiritually and how he married Katie (Matt and Micah’s sister – also a part of Adam’s Road) and they have two cats. Now to you this may seem like nothing at all… but God grabbed me tonight and I was filled with utter sadness over the knowledge that no one in my family knows Christ. I could not stop from crying during his testimony, my heart broke for Joseph knowing the pain he was experiencing.

After the show I was able to speak with Joseph one on one, which started with a hug and being choked up with tears and ending with us praying for each other’s families. PRAISE GOD! I am so blessed to have met Joseph tonight, that I almost feel like God crossed our paths and I made a new friend tonight… or maybe I’m just a fanboy stalker, I am not really sure… LOL. But I was just struck by the fact that we both came to a saving faith in Christ 12 years ago, we both have families that don’t know Jesus and we both have 2 cats… coincidence? I think not.

God’s Real Purpose for this Evening

All joking and cat stories aside I am very serious when I said God grabbed hold of me tonight, and it wasn’t just so I could pray with Joseph. God refreshed or reignited a passion within me to share the Gospel. Not just share it, but share it intentionally… with purpose and with passion.

Matthew 28:16-20

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

This is what we lose sight of so easily, especially being Christians in America, that we have been Commissioned by God. If you want to go by Webster, that means we have been given AN ORDER by God. To go and make disciples of all nations… to GO. That would be a verb, an ACTION word. As I wrote in another post, we can often make the mistake of thinking if we live “good Christian lives” (whatever that means) then our example is witness enough. That attitude is dead wrong. Can you imagine if the 12 Apostles had that same attitude? None of us would know the name of Jesus!

This is my personal challenge to myself, to share the Gospel every day with someone who doesn’t know Jesus. It may be a casual conversation at a grocery check out or an in depth conversation elsewhere… I will leave it to God to place people in my path. But how refreshing would it be to LIVE for Jesus every day? We exist in a world of lost souls, all destined for an eternity separated from God… Can you imagine how many people may come to know Christ if we shared the Gospel on a regular basis? Can you imagine how many people… those people might plant the seeds of the Gospel within?

The thought gives me chills.

I want to thank God again for a wonderful evening at Church, thank Adam’s Road for making the journey, thank the team for their testimonies… and invite you to get to know Adam’s Road, share in their ministry… and prayerfully consider how you can share the Gospel with someone you know.

Adam’s Road

Adams Road

Jesus unshackled four religious people and filled them with the knowledge of God’s amazing grace. Adam’s Road is made up of these four individuals, whom God rescued out of Mormonism and brought into a personal and saving relationship with Jesus. Through the transformative power of the Gospel, we who once were blind, lost, and dead are now trophies of God’s immeasurable grace. We have discovered the Bread of Life and no longer hunger; we have drunk from the fountain of life and no longer thirst. We are proof that no one is outside of the reach of God’s grace. We were lost, but Jesus searched us out, relentlessly pursued us, and saved us. We are evidence of the life-changing power of God’s incalculable love. ~ Adam’s Road, Official Website

All of the music produced and performed by Adam’s Road is given away free on their website, just as The Gospel is freely given. Please visit their site today and share it on your social networks.

Fellowship Friday #15 Have You Met These Christian Bloggers?

Welcome back to Fellowship Friday, a weekly post on Stand Tall For Christ where I will share four Christian Bloggers with you I have met from around the world. It is my hope by doing this you will discover some of the amazing men and women doing the Lord’s work and spend time in fellowship with them. I want to encourage you to visit their blogs, follow their blogs, comment on their blogs, share their blogs and ultimately grow spiritually from the time you spend with them.

Here are this week’s bloggers:

Hope and Light

Hope & Light: “My name is Barbara Robbins, and I’m the wife of a Christian video and movie producer-director and mom of two adult children, including our son who has cerebral palsy and is completely bed bound and dependent upon others for all his needs. The focus of my writing is sharing the lessons I’ve learned as the mom of a special needs child and a sufferer of multiple chronic illnesses. The path I’ve walked is not one I would have chosen, but it is the path my Lord and Savior has taken me down so my desire is to bring Him glory where I am.”

New Creations Ministries

New Creations Ministries: “If you believe that life is indeed meant to be lived with a purpose for our LORD, I invite you to join me in the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle through exhibiting intentional, God-honoring ways! I have been blessed with several very diverse careers so far; one in public relations, another as a certified nutritional counselor and now as an aspiring writer and conference speaker. Raising two wonderful children and several dogs and cats along the way, has been a blessing as well!”

Be Make Send

Be. Make. Multiply. Send: “God has called us to be, making, multiply, and send disciples of Jesus into the world. Not just to preach. Not just to lead meetings. Not just to visit folks in their homes and hospitals. God has called pastors to lead–through preaching, through meetings, through visits, and through discipline in Kingdom productivity.”

The Victorious Believer

The Victorious Believer: “My name is Claudia and I am the “Blogger-in-chief”. I am also a wife, a mom of two adorable little girls and an eCommerce entrepreneur. I really enjoy writing and I love to sing Gospel music. South Africa is my home, I live on the Eastern South Coast of this beautiful and interesting country.

Although I graduated from university with a degree in Accounting and Business, my passions have always been words, music and media related “stuff”. So marrying my faith with these other passions just feels natural and gives me the opportunity to do what I love to do.”


Thank you for taking the time to check out these Christian authors, all doing Kingdom Work in the name of Jesus… AMEN! Check back here every Friday for another installment of Fellowship Friday with all new bloggers from around the world.
