Luke 17:11-19 New King James Version (NKJV) Ten Lepers Cleansed 11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Why You Always Pray In Jesus Name”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Why You Always Pray In Jesus Name”

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, So many people believe that there are many paths to God. They sincerely believe these paths can be found in various religions. Basically, they believe all religions end up in the same place with the one true God. The Bible doesn’t provide any wiggle room for these false concepts. 1Timothy 2:5 is saying that in order to even communicate with God...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Be Sure It Is God Talking”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Be Sure It Is God Talking”

God’s people should know when He has spoken. When you walk close to God, spending time in His Word, your ears are tuned to the sound of His voice. When God speaks you can find whatever He is saying in at least two places in scripture (Matt. 18:16). God always gives witness to what He is saying (2 Cor. 13:1). Anytime people step out on their own declaring what cannot be found in the Bible there is trouble. When you...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “My Queries Concerning the Refugees”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “My Queries Concerning the Refugees”

I cannot begin to imagine what life must be like for these (refugees) precious people. They are afraid, desperate, and many other things I don’t have the capacity to understand. The long journey still has them about 1,000 miles from our border. I have no idea how long it takes for women and children to walk 1,000 miles, but assume it may be a few months before they get to us. What makes thousands of people pick up the little...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Peace in the Pain”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “Peace in the Pain”

Sometimes you just want to run away and hide. The pain gets so great you would give anything just to disengage from the trail. Remember that no matter how deep the anguish gets you are not alone. The sun will shine again. Start rehearsing telling how you survived perhaps the greatest challenge in your life. No matter how it looks you get to win just like you always have. This trial if you stick with Jesus won’t take you out,...

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “More Cages?”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “More Cages?”

Hey Christians, there are more refugees on the way. There’s are plenty of kids still locked in cages, but more will be here soon. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the actions of believers during the first round of inhumane treatment. I may have to head south this time. James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world....

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “With a Sword in Hand”

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: “With a Sword in Hand”

The Lord is pleased with his people, and he gives victory to those who are humble. All of you faithful people, praise our glorious Lord! Celebrate and worship. Praise God with songs on your lips and a sword in your hand. Psalm 149:4-6 These verses almost seem contradictory. Your being told that God gives those submitted to Him victory, but you are told to praise while carrying a sword. Is there something strange here? Why am I still holding a...
