THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “What Interests You”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “What Interests You”

I’m doing an unofficial survey asking about topics of interest. I’d like to know what subjects in scripture you might be curious about. Perhaps there are questions you’ve always wanted to ask, but for whatever reason it’s never happened. Perhaps it’s not an unfamiliar subject, you just want to know more on the topic. Years ago I use to have at church what I called an open forum. Usually we would be having a shut-in at the church, so there...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Street Lights”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Street Lights”

I’m so blessed to be doing an evangelism training at The Rock Church. I’m working with intelligent dedicated folks that are going to be some serious soul winners. The best part is that this team will be in the West End. It took a minute, but God has allowed me to go back into the hood. I’m so excited I almost can’t stand the joy. I feel so alive when I’m giving Jesus to people the devil thinks he’s completely...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “I’m Allowed To Dream”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “I’m Allowed To Dream”

Psalm 133:1-3 Says that it is wonderful when brothers live together in harmony. There’s more in the verse than harmony being wonderful and pleasing. It says God will give blessings where He sees harmony between brothers. The verse ends with the ultimate gift of life everlasting. Isn’t that the goal everyone has which is to be blessed while we are on Earth & then to have eternal life? I cannot speak for anyone else, but I’m determined that right in...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Pressing for Love”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Pressing for Love”

With all of the racial tension going on are you finding it difficult at times to pray for the people who are perpetrating the hateful acts? Is it something requiring much prayer in order to maintain your love walk? I’m just keeping it 100, because I find myself so hurt by the treatment so many Black folks receive I have to pray constantly so that prayers for unrelated things are not hindered. One thing the Lord reminds me of is...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Struggle Is Inevitable & Profitable”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Struggle Is Inevitable & Profitable”

Frederick Douglass had much to say concerning the struggle for freedom and equality during slavery and in its immediate aftermath. His insight as you will see in the following quote had as much relevance then as it does today. The same arguments from those opposed to peaceful protest have not changed. They desire for those seeking justice to pursue it in some unseen fashion. The use of deflection like throwing the troops into a protest about police brutality is an...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Second Death”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Second Death”

The second death is the final judgment those that don’t accept Jesus will face. All of us will either go to our reward in paradise or punishment in eternal fire. Paradise is where there is no pain in body or mind. The divine connection to Jesus through the reborn spirit will never be severed. Eternal bliss beyond imagination will fill every moment of ones existence. In addition, to perfect peace the believer will be showered with endless gifts of love...
