YES! There Is GOOD NEWS!

Like me, you’re probably sick of all the negative news! It’s a by-product of the fallen, sin-sick world that we are colonizing for heaven. I feel more an alien, a stranger, in this world than ever before! Yet, I am an ambassador for Christ, and so are you. We have Good News, GREAT NEWS! Peter,… Read more »

Colonizing Earth for Heaven

Independence Day – I love it!  It’s the celebration of our beloved nation’s birth! The flags! The parades! The fireworks! The BBQs! The Family Gatherings! My mind goes back to studying about the colonization of the east coast by the English, the west coast by the Spanish, and the south by the French.  America –… Read more »

REZ LIFE!

Have you ever repented of sin only to later repeat it? You confess, repent, and receive forgiveness and cleansing by faith (1 John 1:9) … each time, over and over. Repentance is a 180 degree turn.

STAY CENTERED!

“I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag and to the Savior for Whose kingdom it stands.  One Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again with life and liberty to all who believe.” I fear that some of you would be offended if the Christian flag was flown above the flag of our beloved USA.

EACH ONE ~ REACH ONE in 2016

Are you excited about this new year? I am. Perhaps it’s because I almost died in December of 2015. Long story – short: I had a kidney stone that caused a blockage that caused an infection that almost killed me! So I spent December with surgeries, sick, and recovering. So, I’m very grateful, and I’m… Read more »
