Everything Is Permissible

Published: October 6, 2015
I get a fair amount of email from people who are seriously troubled by "low level bondage". What I mean by that term is that they've taken something that most would consider a fairly minor thing and either by them selves or with some "help" from friends have become totally obsessed over it.

Spirit of Fear

Published: October 4, 2015
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

I first wrote an article by this name in October of 2014. The level of fear among pre trib evangelicals was on the rise even then.

Who We Are In Christ

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

As I’ve said earlier in this series, I am not part of the “word of faith” movement and I am not a charismatic faith healer. I am an evangelical Christian who takes the Bible very seriously, believing it means just what it says.

Why Prayers For Healing Fail, Part 2

Published: September 1, 2015

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I’ve received some blow back from my studies on “What Does the Bible Say About Healing” and “Why Prayers For Healing Fail, Part 1”. People have jumped to the conclusion that I’m part of the Word of Faith movement (I’m not) or a charismatic faith healer (not that either,


Why Prayers For Healing Fail, Part 1

Published: September 1, 2015

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

People come up with all kinds of reasons why prayers for healing aren’t answered, most of them placing the responsibility on God. He’s not doing that anymore, it wasn’t His will, or His timing. He gave you your disease to help you become a better Christian.


What Does The Bible Say About Healing?

Published: September 1, 2015

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Because of my middle daughter’s recent bout with cancer (victorious) I have had occasion to study the subject of healing again. In doing so, I’ve come to the conclusion that most people have formed their opinions about healing through hearsay and false teaching rather than from what the Bible actually says about it. 


Love Is A Verb

Published: September 1, 2015

Commentary by Jack Kelley

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. (Ephes. 5:25)

This command is unique in that it has no parallel in human relationships. Wives are not commanded to love their husbands this way,

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

The word book appears 188 times in the Bible. The Hebrew version is cepher (pronounced safer) and the Greek is biblos from which we get the English word Bible.

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma tax came to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”

“Yes, he does,” he replied.

When Peter came into the house,


Left Behind For Bad Behavior?

Published: August 11, 2015

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

One of the most telling indicators that the rapture is near is the number of people who write fearing that because of their behavior they’re going to be left behind. People didn’t worry so much about that when they thought the rapture was off in the distant future.


Judging Planet Earth

Commentary by Jack Kelley

The combination of the Rapture and the Battle of Ezekiel 38 will fill the world with anguish and uncertainty as Daniel’s 70th Week begins. Where did all those people go? How did Israel so utterly destroy that massive invasion force all by itself?


The Four Horsemen, al Mahdi, and the Magnetic Polar Reversal

Published: July 26, 2015
Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder, "Come!" and I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer. (Rev 6:1-2)

Are We Hedging Our Bets?

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

It was the clearest message the Lord has given me in a long time.  I was in bed and half asleep when it came to me. Fearful of forgetting it, I got up and made a bunch of random notes and then went back to bed.

Commentary by Jack Kelley

The other day I received an interesting response to my answer stating that the Bible supports an approximate 6000 year history for the human race. This person didn’t dispute the Bible, only our interpretation of it, in disagreeing with my answer.

The essence of his response was that since science has found what it considers to be persuasive evidence that contradicts the literal view of the creation account,
