Commentary by Jack Kelley

See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid” (Isaiah 17:1-2).

What Does The Bible Say About Healing?

Published: September 1, 2015 (Originally published: August 15, 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.

Why Prayers For Healing Fail, Part 1

Published: September 1, 2015 (Originally published: August 22, 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.

Why Prayers For Healing Fail, Part 2

Published: September 1, 2015 (Originally published: August 29, 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,

Who We Are In Christ

Published: September 13, 2015 (Originally published: September 12, 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.

Spirit of Fear

Published: October 4, 2015 (Originally published: October 3, 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.

Garden Update Early Spring 2016

Published: December 13, 2016 (Originally published: March 7, 2016)

Early 2016 we started a garden to feed the poor in a small town in Mexico. Here’s what the garden looks like now!

We’ve been blessed with lots of rain and the garden is growing! We’re growing a few types of zucchini, green beans, and herbs.  Zucchini is our main crop so far. The seeds are cheap, and they grow quickly and produce so well!

Zucchini are very popular here and this time of year they are pretty expensive, so most aren’t able to have them until the fall.  We also harvest the blossoms. People love to stuff the blossoms with cheese and fry them.

Agape Community Center

Published: December 13, 2016 (Originally published: June 28, 2015)

For years, the community in which we’ve been working has been trying to complete a public meeting and recreation center. It originally started as a 20 X 20 single room that currently houses a seniors group, a pre-school, and a no cost legal clinic. A few years ago they were able to add bathrooms.  Recently the women made and sold tamales for an entire year to earn enough for material to build the walls for a larger meeting room and the men built the walls.  But when it came to building a roof, they found it was beyond their capabilities.  To make things worse, the roof on the original room needs replacing too.  We offered to help, and the Agape Community Center became our current project.

Update November 6th 2015: We’ve finished the Agape Center! The two new roofs are on, we added new sturdy doors, electricity, windows, and the necessary window bars in this area. The community will now come together and paint the building. They’ve already started using it for community meetings, the local senior citizens club, birthday parties and daily Zumba classes. With the school room, the church, and now this community center, we feel so blessed to have been able to take on projects that impact whole communities. Our thanks go out to you, our readers, for the support and prayer that makes this possible!
