  1. I feel this completely, my whole body is tattooed My face as well I'm judged everyday for the way I look, I'm a follower of Jesus a husband and a father. I have been told I'm not welcome and I have no place in heaven, I have been a follower for about 6 year's and I came from a life of crime and addiction just a sinful lifestyle and God gave me another chance and I feel so discriminated from "my Church family". I still press into the Lord, cause He is compassionate and merciful. And to give a quick description of me I have across my forehead "Only God Can Judge Me" below that on left above my eyebrow I have a Christian fish with Jesus in it under my right eye I have Loyalty and a little cross under my left eye. Both my arms are tribal and Mary praying on my leg a clover on my hand and anchor on my arm "TRUE LOVE" across my knuckles and cause I'm a cook I got "Dirty Money" on my other hand. I like to think I wear my faith

  2. I love how genuine you are and how you stand up in boldness… I can't imagine what you have been and gone through in order to share the message. Im just thankful that you have been obedient to His calling because your light and fire ignites others that are afraid to be light in this generation. Thank you

  3. I don't believe in God, or anything really for that matter. But I admire all of your fans and your relationship with the man you call your lord, and I just wanted to say you guys may not like me (cause im a gay trans man and im a sinner) but i love how you believe in something so distant and bring it so close to your heart.

  4. My…! I Praise the Lord as I came across this video…I was severely criticised as accordingly by my Christian friends…since I am a non christian I felt really bad even to live ahead in shame upholding another religion …Thank you so much Jon …May God Bless you& family…

  5. Not Qualified is where he starts, I so believe this. I've been studying Exodus, where Moses was selected by God to deliver, to serve God. I really enjoy the gift of Ministry God has called you to. God is having you feed me with his word. I keep you in my prayers to keep you humble.

    God Bless

  6. God uses the unqualified "nothings" to glorify him by changing them into "Righteous Somethings" part of the Great I Am. He parted the Red Sea so how can changing and using a human/his child be difficult?

  7. Whatever you did in the past doesn't count since you have accepted Jesus. Jesus came for the unrighteous and He loves you just the way you are. Peoples thoughts don't matter , what matters is what God thinks. He loves you just as do many of us.

  8. Jon, I'm just starting to learn about and practice this art form and I'm so drawn to your style. You aren't trying to line up perfect words that sound witty because the message is more important.

    This is what I needed to hear today because I already see people tuning out from what I have to talk about. But it's not MY message and I may not be qualified. I'm just a shepherd doing my duty. ✌️♥️

  9. Why would god choose bad people for help? We would not ask a murder to help us, or David who was a terrible father, adulterer and a king,then mary the prostitute. Why would god give them grace? I don't undestand
    the questions and everyone looks at the bible differently. I'm so confused and hurt. I want peace. If God is great and wonderful why do so many suffer. That I will never understand. Adam and Eve destroyed the garden,but we have to suffer. How were children made if its against the law to copulate why was it okay. What if it was a really good book someone wrote?
    What if it's a lie and we don't understand or never taught this believe. I sin i sin every day. I don't know what good is and follow god with out being made fun off. So many different religions and maybe the government wants you to believe or you'll go to hell.
    Some times this is hell on earth

  10. God lifts up those that are oppressed and the enemy is always there to steal your glory. The antichrist goes forth conquering and to conquer. This is the problem. They used unholy measures to conquer and were never corrected.

  11. Jon, I have been praying for clarity as I keep being told that because I’m just beginning my journey with god and have self harm scares from when I did not trust him that I am not qualified to help anyone else come to god or grow closer to him. This really spoke to me and I appreciate you taking the time to make this video not only for me but everyone it has touched and is yet to reach. Bless you!
