Are You Dead Yet?

That’s the greeting many people will receive this month as they celebrate what might be called “The Annual Day of True Love.” Radio stations will play classic “love songs” like All You Need Is Love, The Greatest Love Of All, Love will Keep Us Together, What The World Needs Now is Love, I Just Called To Say I Love You, …

HOPE Has A Name: JESUS!

Happy New Year! Yes, we made it through 2017, and before we could even catch our collective breath after those tumultuous 365 days, 2018 is upon us. Last year we heard many so-called prophetic biblical pronouncements as would-be prognosticators regaled us with all kinds of astronomical portents, none of which proved to be relevant to us Christians—or to anyone else. …

JAL’s Heart to You at Another Year’s End

Well, here I am again, descending upon you from Cyber Space, and doing my best to bare my heart to you as I would if we were face-to-face. I’m very sorry that my present physical challenge has of late prevented me from roaming the planet, looking into the eyes of my brothers and sisters whom I love, and enjoying mutual …

Want More Holidays? You Can Have ‘Em!

OK, you’re sitting at your desk eager to digest this meaningful missive, and out the window you see your neighbors removing the gravestones from the makeshift cemetery in their front yard, taking down the witches, skeletons, and cobwebs from their trees, and letting the air of their giant inflatable Frankenstein that is obscuring most of their home from view, all …

The Greatest Key to Understanding the Bible?

Did you even remotely consider that the Rapture of the Ekklesia was going to occur last month? Millions of our Christian precious brethren did exactly that, and many were quite certain that it would. As proof, they cited signs in the heavens, including this past August’s eclipse, the April 2024 eclipse, and the September 23 planetary alignment on the Jewish …

Shopping With God’s Grocery List

First of all, be looking for our mid-September email on Friday, the 15th. I will address the hubbub in Christendom as to whether the eclipse last month (and the one in 2024) and the planetary alignment on 9/23 have anything to do with us Christians, and I will make a bold prediction about the non-date of the Rapture/Gathering Together. Last …

Will You Receive a “Lavish Reception” Into Christ’s Kingdom?

OK, hang with me now as together we intrepidly dive into the deep waters of God’s matchless Word, which is profitable for doctrine, reproof, and correction. In this FOD, accompanied by our Lord Jesus, in whose everlasting arms we dwell, we’ll focus on some exhortation and encouragement parts, and it might get a bit uncomfortable. Hey, that’s good, if the …

The Path To Freedom: Truthing It

Happy July! Hard to believe that 2017 is already half gone. Despite the prevailing wickedness sweeping the earth, you and I can live each day with a holy purpose: shining the light, love, and truth of Jesus Christ into the darkness, one person at a time. Because we know for sure that our Lord is coming back for us (which …

The Only Way to Achieve Perfection in God’s Sight

Omigosh! I can’t believe some of the behavior I have made God and Christ watch during the past 50+ years since I got serious about being a Christian. You can thank God you didn’t have to watch it. Anyway, I know you’ve been busy putting on your own show for Him. Yes, the good I’ve done far outweighs the bad, …

The Politics of Christianity

In our most recent USA presidential election, many “conservative,” “evangelical,” “Bible believing” Christians voted for Donald Trump, some enthusiastically, and some because they saw him only as the lesser of two evils. Since his inauguration, he has been at the center of a maelstrom of controversy, some would say due to malevolent forces bent on taking him out of his …
