HE IS RISEN!! A Reason For Our Hope: Easter Sunday And The Case For Christ

These Christian Times


SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWS LINKS AND VIDEOS: The Lord Has Risen! He has died on the cross for our sins: “And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed,” (1 PETER 2:24). It was a single act made out of love. He was lead to the cross as a sacrifice for the world. This act tore through the fabric of time to forgive the past, present and future human race and the sins of the world. 1 John 2:2 – And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world.

The Extinction Protocol

April 2014SAUDI ARABIASaudi Arabia confirmed 20 new cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) on Saturday and Sunday, adding up to 49 infections in six days, a sudden increase of a disease that kills about a third of the people infected and has no cure. MERS, a SARS-like novel coronavirus that emerged in Saudi Arabia two years ago, has infected 244 people in the kingdom, of whom 76 have died, the Health Ministry said on its website. However, Health Minister Abdullah al-Rabia on Sunday told reporters there was no scientific evidence yet to justify ordering additional preventative measures such as travel restrictions. He said he did not know why there had been a surge of cases in Jeddah but said it might be part of a seasonal pattern since there was also a big rise in infections last April and May. Another cluster of cases has…

Living Up to My Name

Stacy N. Sergent


I’ll never forget the day I got called out in my Greek class. My mind had been wandering as the professor went over the vocabulary words on the white board, and I thought he had caught me when I heard him say my name. “Stacy! Did you know,” he asked, “that your name is the diminutive form of Anastasia? And that name comes from anastasis. So the root of your name is -” He tapped the board where the Greek word was written, and I read the English translation next to it. “Resurrection,” I said in wonder. No, I definitely had not known that that’s what my name means. I’m certain my parents didn’t know either when they chose the name. But all these years later, I’d like to think it fits.

Being something of a language nerd, I love to pick words apart. So when I looked at anastasis

Happy Resurrection Day

Blessed Hope Homestead

What a gloriously beautiful Resurrection Day here in KY. What began as a rather chilly dawn, has developed into the perfect day.

We began our celebration at dawn, meeting with fellow believers for a community Sonrise service at the local cemetery. That was followed by breakfast at our church.  We then came back for our usual eleven o’clock service and concluded with an egg hunt for the youth.

I hope you have enjoyed this most blessed day.

“God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good”.
