Rapture Mania

Published: October 28, 2015

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)

Who We Are In Christ

Published: September 13, 2015

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.

In our series titled, What Does the Bible Say About Healing, we’ve been looking at reasons why prayers for healing fail. Today we continue with Part 3. Please don’t look at any one of these reasons as being necessarily applicable to you.

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?

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.

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

Published: July 28, 2015

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?
