Covid 19….It’s Real

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 29-01-2021


I was surprised the other day while waiting on a sandwich I ordered at a local café. They had outside dining and take out. Mask’s were required to enter. This fellow comes over to me with his mask pulled down under his nose and goes to bad mouthing the government over pushing the masks saying it was all a farce and there was nothing to it…All of it was fabricated by the government and asked it I knew anyone who had it…well, yeah, I said, my son, my friend’s son, a nephew and a couple of other people I knew. I got away from him as quickly as I could, not wanting to hear anymore about the fake disease we are suffering “unjustly” through….. Yesterday, a friend of mine told me his brother had died of Covid 19. I’m just stunned that some folks could share that fellow’s line of thinking considering all the folks who have Covid 19 and all those who have died world wide from it….What do some of our citizens listen to, and read, and study. I hope all of you will follow the guide lines that we have in place to try and limit our exposure to this dreaded disease. Take care folks..

2 Peter, Chapter 3

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 25-01-2021


I think most of my fellow Christians have read 2 Peter, including chapter three, written by the Apostle Peter. He tells us that people become scoffers because the Lord is so slow in returning back to earth. He explains to us why He is so slow to return and it is because He is wanting all to repent and become believers in His word. Then Peter goes on to say that this earth, the elements and the heavens will be destroyed by fire…..but Peter says the Lord has given us a way out of that judgement.  To escape that destruction by fire, and to enter the new heaven and the new earth, is by becoming believers. If you are a believer you know all of this and fully understand it. If you are one of the scoffers, I hope you will reconsider your thinking and ponder what is in store for you if you continue to scoff God’s word. That destruction by fire will be complete….That is the end for all the scoffers….and that is the beginning for all believers…It’s your choice.

Identified Flying Object…

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 23-01-2021


From Pete Hester Facebook Page….

The world of politics….That is the happening thing today. I can get involved. I can leave it go and not comment. And all the other things that are going on I can back away from. Now I am going to say something directly from my heart and it is this…..What is going on today is directly from God to me through His word. The world is now totally in His hands. He has full control of the spaceship called Earth. He is guiding it to His final destination. He does not need my help at the controls of this ship. He needs me to have faith in Him. We can be bitter, we can fuss and complain, we can say derogatory things about those in temporary control of the Earth if you choose…But for me, just knowing that the ship’s Captain has got this I choose to relax and ride this ship He is guiding….I realize it’s going to be a bumpy ride, that He told us already, but I know where this ship is heading….It is an identified flying object and we know where it is going. I hope you will join me and come along for the ride, relaxing as our Heavenly Father takes us home.

January 20, 2021…Conditions in America Inauguration Day

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 20-01-2021


As our President Donald J. Trump prepares to leave the White House, I am making this post so it will show back up as a future memory on my timeline. This isn’t a political dispute. I am genuinely curious what the next 4 years will bring:
Today is the Biden/Harris Inauguration.
• Gas is currently $1.95 per gallon.
• Interest rates are 2.25 percent for a 30-year mortgage.
• The stock market closed at 30829.40 though we have been fighting COVID for 11 months.
• Our GDP growth for the 3rd Qtr was 33.1 percent.
• We had the best economy ever until COVID and it is recovering well.
• We have not had any new wars or conflicts in the last 4 years.
• North Korea has been under control and has not been testing any missiles.
• ISIS has not been heard from for over 3 years.
• The housing market is the strongest it has been in years.
• Homes have appreciated at an unbelievable rate and sell well.
• And let’s not forget that peace deals in the Middle East were signed by 4 countries—unprecedented!
• Unemployment sits at 6.7% in spite of COVID.
#Biden takes over on 1-20-21. Let’s see how the next four years fair. God bless America! 🇺🇸🙏🏻 Thank you President Trump!

Homophobic Slur….

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 11-01-2021


Now let me see if I have this correct….One of our golfers uttered a homophobic slur under his breath and was called down about it and had to apologize for it. It makes me wonder if our general population would expect God to apologize for Sodom and Gomorrah if it happened today. I don’t think any of the rules, good or bad, have changed one bit since that day many years ago. We try to tell many people “oh, it has all changed now….that is not bad….that is good and don’t you be saying anything bad about something we think is good. Men lying with men is ok nowadays…this is modern times.”  ……I don’t think so folks. It ain’t changed. It is still a sin. And me, or the golfer involved in the homophobic slur are guilty of reminding folks that it is still a sin and folks who do that are doing something wrong in God’s sight…..will we next be saying, “hush, don’t be calling him a bank robber, he was simply a man in need”. I tell you, we have come a long ways, baby….we have come a long ways….

My Pledge

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 07-01-2021


I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Since as far back as I can remember I have said those words. They are as real to me as, “Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name” is to me. I am a Christian. I am an American. That remains unchanged. Steadfast am I as an American Christian, and I will serve thee, My God and My Country. Forever. Amen.

President Biden…Welcome to the Hot Seat

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 16-12-2020


Sir, I am one of your many citizens serving you and our country. I welcome you same as I welcomed President Trump and President Obama and President Bush. You have been elected to serve a great nation and I hope the media treats you better than it did President Trump. Matter of fact, you could almost detect hatred in most all of the opinions stated in each news cast about the president when President Trump reined. Hopefully you will fair better with the media. You can be like our President Obama was and not do anything to upset anybody. Remember what they say, “A sleeping dog does not get kicked.” Anyway, sir, I am the same citizen today as I was for all the other Presidents and I am behind the Office of the President of the United States during your term and the all presidents to follow you. I hope you will remember we are a Christian nation, that’s important to me, but I am an American, no matter what you feel is right and I will try to be the best citizen I can be, same as I was with the others. I may not agree with everything you say and do, but then I did not with the others either. President Bush was my personal favorite and I’m hoping you can kind’a be like him, but that may be asking to much….Anyway sir, it gonna be a rough ride the next four years and I pray that you will follow our God…you know, and back Israel always….

My Heavenly Body….Well, For When I Get There….

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 05-12-2020


I love that question Facebook ask me every day, you know, what’s on your mind this morning. Reading in 2nd Cor about me trading in the earthly tent my body calls home will one day soon will be traded in for my heavenly body is what is on my mind. I’m wondering about that this morning, trying to envision just what I’m gonna look like……I was just imagining me standing in the “body shop”, St. Peter saying ok Pete go ahead and pick out the hair do style you want, do you like the bald you or the you from your teen years…Do you want to retain that big belly or do you want this nice set of abs and pec’s. We also have some nice shoulders and biceps over here you may be interested in……well, ok, maybe that’s a little to much even for my overactive imaginations….but my new body……it’s gonna be a good one….

St. Jude Children Research Hospital. Please Give. Thanks

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 01-12-2020


Luke 18 verses 15 – 17….”Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belong to such as these”….I try to give something every month to St Jude. What an institution Danny Thomas built for our children and to never charge the family anything for the works they are doing is amazing. My friends, it is you and I who help keep this hospital going to aide the children. I hope you will also remember them when you are looking for a charity to donate to….Please make it one of your goals in life to help our children. What a reward just knowing you are a small part of this worthy effort.
