...... A STREAM IN THE DESERT


DEMOCRACY OR THEOCRACY?


Democracy is great, as long as money and greed don’t take over.


And theocracy, when ruled by religious tyrants like ISIS is deadly.


But then there is the Kingdom of God..


A theocracy where God is King.


“The time is fulfilled, the Kingdom of God is here!  Repent and believe the good news.”

Mark 1


The Kingdom of God is not a future dream, waiting for the lucky ones after the Apocalypse.


The Kingdom of God is here now blazing with all the power of heaven, transforming its citizens into new creations. 


There are those who hear its call, leave their attachments behind, and enter with joy.


There are those who say their prayers and repeat their creeds, but continue  as slaves to their lusts and fears.


“The Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up.  Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.

Matthew 13


The Door is open.


The King is waiting.


“Lord, I’ve had enough of this rat-race. 

Here I am.

I abandon myself to you!”
