Mid-South author Racheal E. Jackson’s prophecy, end time book is a pivotal reminder of God’s strategic plans for His children

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NIV)


MEMPHIS — For what it’s worth, Racheal E. Jackson’s faith walk can be appropriately summed up in one single sentence.

That is, she undoubtedly has heaven on her mind.

To grasp a thorough concept of this notion, look no further than Jackson’s immeasurable spiritual body of work, a trend that, to her credit, has been highlighted by an awe-inspiring endeavor that figures to advance the kingdom for years to come.

GOD’S LEADING LADY LEADING — A devout minister in her own right, Racheal E. Jackson the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Understanding Bible Prophecy And End Time Events: Bible Prophecy Made Easy.”

A devout minister in her own right, Jackson is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Understanding Bible Prophecy And End Time Events: Bible Prophecy Made Easy.”

“World events are so chaotic today, causing heightened interest and fear of eschatological events among non-Christians, as well as Christians, leaving them fearful and searching for answers,” Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “The scriptures are not silent about the future of our world, and the events leading to the end of this age. God has revealed His plan for us through His prophetic pages of His book: The Bible.”

And, to her distinctly unique credit, Jackson deemed it essential some four years to steadfastly assume the monumental task of revealing God’s strategic plan for His people, courtesy of an informative and spiritually gut-checking written document designed to empower mankind to — for a lack of better words — assess the overall landscape of its life.

A book that is comprised of 82 pages in length, it’s safe to assume that Jackson’s “Understanding Bible Prophecy And End Time Events: Bible Prophecy Made Easy” has been dubbed a constant page-turner since its much-anticipated release in October 2014.

And, though her book is a little more than four years removed from making its presence on the market, this brilliant and talent Christian writer doesn’t shy away from the notion that not only can her four-year-old book reignite a buzz amongst her reading audience but, most importantly, it could surely achieve the purpose for which she was assigned to assemble it.

That is, her compelling book is destined to serve as a spiritual GPS system, of sorts, for helping steer people to Christ.

“This book is written so that the average person can understand Bible prophecy and end time events,” said a spokesperson for Jackson’s book at Amazon.com. “The scriptures are basic scriptures to study so that you can share the good news of Jesus Christ to a dying world. I pray that this book bless you and encourage you in the Lord.”

So far, so good for Jackson, who needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to assemble her first book, one that’s suitable for Bible study and conducting seminars, in large part because of the three primary questions that customarily arise, she acknowledged.

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — Jackson deemed it essential some four years to steadfastly assume the monumental task of revealing God’s plan for His people, courtesy of an informative and spiritually gut-checking written document designed to empower mankind to — for a lack of better words — assess the overall landscape of its life.

Such thought-provoking inquiries are:

  • How can I understand and relate to subject matter offered by various prophetic teachers?
  • Is the book of Revelation literal or symbolic, and how can I comprehend and interpret its meaning?
  • Where can I find this information in the Bible on my own?

As Jackson is swift to point out, these questions essentially are what fueled her spiritual drive to compose “Understanding Bible Prophecy And End Time Events: Bible Prophecy Made Easy.”

Or, according to her forthright heads up, “To make Bible prophecy easier to understand,” Jackson said without hesitation. “The content of this handbook is modest in length and information. However, it is designed for ease of readability and review.”

Interestingly, Jackson’s book features an assortment of visual aids, most notably charts, maps, and other compelling and eye-catching images, all of which are designed to offer what she describes as a variety of graphic support to the visual learner.

CREATING A BODY OF GLOBAL BUZZ — Although her book is a little more than four years removed since making its presence on the market, this brilliant and talent Christian writer doesn’t shy away from the notion that not only can her four-year-old book reignite a buzz amongst her reading audience but, most importantly, it could surely achieve the purpose for which she was assigned to assemble it.

Having announced that other books are on the horizon, Jackson emphasized that her divine message for writing her prophecy and end times book is a pivotal reminder, whereby she’s assuring people that God is in total control of the chaotic events that are presently happening in our world — particularly during what many Biblical historians have deemed “the last of the last and evil days.”

“(This book) is erasing fear and filling us with joy and excitement as we look forward to the plans that God has in store for His children,” Jackson, a longtime member of Memphis’ Faith Temple Ministries Church of God In Christ, said. “I feel so honored that God has given me the ministry gift of teaching His precious word with a concentration in Eschatology.”

All the while having a heaven on her mind in the process.

Throng of worshipers expected to turn out for Pastor Emeritus Bishop Andrew Jackson, Sr.’s Inaugural Celebration

A MAKING HEADLINE NEWS SPECIAL REPORT 

DALLAS — Retired Memphis Pastor, Bishop Andrew Jackson, Sr., is about to find himself on the right side of history.

Once again.

“I’m a first generation COGIC member,” Jackson, Sr. told Making Headline News this week.

All things considered, it is because of Jackson, Sr.’s unparalleled authority since his ministry joined the fifth largest Christian church in the U.S. that will, in all likelihood, earn mentions when an expected capacity crowd descend upon Faith Temple Ministries Church of God In Christ for his Glorious Inaugural Celebration Service on Friday, April 20 at 7 pm CST in Memphis.  

Powered by the Tennessee Fourth Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction, the service is free and open to the public. 

On November 13, Jackson, Sr. was officially consecrated to the Episcopal Office of Auxiliary Bishop of the COGIC during its 110th Holy Convocation in St. Louis.

While many sense that his forthcoming observance is long overdue and should have taken place long before his ceremonious retirement in June 2016, Jackson, Sr., meanwhile, undoubtedly is looking forward to what figures to be a memorable night within the walls of the church he founded nearly five decades ago.

All while basking in the glory of being thrust on the right side of history.

“Well, I think for a number of reasons,” said Jackson, Sr., 82, when asked why he senses this latest milestone is so intriguing. “First of all, I’m not a longtime COGIC member. I’m not deeply rooted (in the denomination).”

“He’s (been) working the office of a Bishop all along as 1 Timothy tells us,” Jackson, Sr.’s wife, Shirley Jackson, said during a November 2017 interview with Making Headline News. “He’s birthed a lot of pastors out of his church and he was the husband to one wife for 58 years.”

Located at 5191 Elvis Presley Boulevard in South Memphis — less than a mile from the Mississippi state line — Faith Temple Ministries became affiliated with COGIC in 1992 after having been a non-denomination institution for a number of years.

Prior to becoming what Jackson Sr.’s describes as “an independent,” Faith Temple was a member of the historic Mobile, Alabama-based Church of God Pentecostal denomination for 17 years.

“I’ve only been a part of COGIC since 1992. It’s not always that a first generation Pastor who goes to the highest office in the church,” Jackson, Sr., a native of Grady, Arkansas, said. “It’s usually the third or fourth generation people who achieve that goal. I’m a first generation (Bishop), so I’m appreciative of that.”

Although he’s nearly two years removed from having called it a career, Jackson, Sr. said amongst the notable factors he finds intriguing is that his wealth of pastoral experience, coupled with his current role as an Administrative Assistant to Tennessee Fourth Jurisdiction Prelate, Bishop Jerry L. Maynard, will greatly afford him the opportunity to continue being an immeasurable asset to the church.

“I think I can bring something to the organization with 47 years of pastoral experience,” Jackson, Sr. said.

GOD’S PLANOn November 13, Jackson, Sr. was officially consecrated to the Episcopal Office of Auxiliary Bishop of the COGIC during its 110th Holy Convocation in St. Louis.

Come April 20, hundreds of worshipers are expected to turn out at Jackson, Sr.’s Whitehaven community-based church to pay homage to him for his valiant contributions to the Body of Christ.

“I expect to see my family and friends come together and have a grand celebration of my consecration,” Jackson, Sr. said. “I just look forward to seeing them. I will forever be grateful to my church for their support, not only for this particular occasion, but throughout the years.”

A trend that, in the coming days, will be highlighted by him basking in the glory of being thrust on the right side of history.

Once again.

Retired Memphis Pastor Andrew Jackson, Sr. on forthcoming consecration: ‘For me, it’s more of a position of honor’

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the last of a two-part series of Making Headline News’ coverage of retired Memphis Pastor Andrew Jackson, Sr., who will be elevated to the Office of Bishopric this weekend during the Church of God In Christ’s 110th National Holy Convocation in St. Louis.

 

“Man may bestow upon him this great honor, but he has a greater honor, a crown of glory, awaiting him in the life to come.”   Atlanta-area Psalmist Sharon Jackson, on her father’s upcoming consecration to the Office of Bishopric

 

DALLAS — Just before sunset on Sunday, Andrew Jackson, Sr. figured he’d emerge from his Eads, Tennessee home and engage in his customary light exercise.

A MAN OF LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING — The Founder and former Senior Pastor of Memphis’ historic Faith Temple Ministries Church of God In Christ, Andrew Jackson, Sr., 81, is just days away from being officially consecrated to the Office of Bishopric during the COGIC’s 110th National Holy Convocation November 6-14.

Enjoying what was a rather pleasurable stroll through his neighborhood in the outskirts of Memphis, Jackson, Sr. suddenly fielded a congratulatory phone call which, little does he knows, will undoubtedly be one of many he will amass this week.

“I’ll be glad when it’s all over. I’m grateful for the position,” Jackson, Sr. told Making Headline News.

The position to which Jackson is alluding is one that, in all likelihood, will go down as arguably the most historic in a well-publicized pastoral career that spans nearly five decades.

NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER — By and large, it is the industrious impact of his family, coupled with the valiant contributions of his church that Jackson, Sr. admittedly will find himself reflecting upon this weekend when he witnesses what figures to be grandest milestone in his illustrious pastoral administration.

While many sense that such a feat is long overdue and should have taken place long before his ceremonious retirement in June 2016, Jackson, Sr., on the other hand, is, well, basking in the glory of moment.

“It’s a position of honor,” the Bishop Designate and native of Grady, Arkansas repeatedly said. “It’s the highest position in the church.”

All things considered, it is a distinct, unprecedented honor by which Jackson, Sr. doesn’t take lightly, regardless of how long it has taken to come to fruition.

For what it’s worth, he’d be the first to concede that it was all in God’s timing.

“You know, you start off as a minister, and then an Elder, and then a pastor,” said Jackson, sounding very much like he’s giving a spiritual Hall of Fame speech, of sorts. “For me, it’s more of a position of honor.”

Widely regarded as one of the most eminent pastors through the COGIC, it is, by all accounts, an elevation that won’t be merely given to Jackson, Sr.

Rather, this long-awaited promotion came from heaven.

Which, of course, means if God said it, that settles it.

“It was a sigh of relief in that area (of my career), said Jackson, Sr., explaining his immediate reaction after learning of his forthcoming consecration through a formal written statement issued six weeks ago by COGIC Presiding Bishop Charles Blake. “I wasn’t sure what they were going to do, because it was a long time coming.”

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Because of his notable contributions of the COGIC and the Body of Christ, the “long time coming” acknowledgment had seemingly been echoed like a classic hymn, particularly within the walls of the South Memphis-based church Jackson, Sr. founded back in 1969.

“They were overjoyed,” said Jackson, Sr., recalling the reactions of his Faith Temple Ministries membership after news spread of his upcoming elevation. “They were happy. Some said you deserve it. Some said it finally came. I couldn’t put a percentage on it, but I’ve had very good, supportive members, who helped me get to where I needed to be over 47 years.”

And then there are the Faithful Six, or The Jackson Six, or…well, perhaps Jackson, Sr. can better explain it.

WIFE KNOWS BEST — “He deserves it,” Shirley Jackson said of her husband’s forthcoming consecration. “I knew this was something he really wanted. This is something he’s worked 47 years for.”

“Of course, keep in mind that six (of those members) were my children. (My ministry) would have been absolutely impossible without them, Jackson, Sr. said. “They’ve impacted the ministry the most as far as music, preaching, and teaching. In a nutshell, I couldn’t have done what I’ve did without them, and I owe a great deal of gratitude to them.”

By and large, it is the industrious impact of his family, coupled with the valiant contributions and unyielding support of his church that Jackson, Sr. admittedly will find himself reflecting upon this weekend when he witnesses arguably the grandest milestone in his illustrious pastoral administration.

HE WON’T COMPLAIN — While many sense that such a feat is long overdue and should have taken place long before his ceremonious retirement in June 2016, Jackson, Sr., on the other hand, is, well, basking in the glory of moment.

“I don’t know if I would call it nervous,” said Jackson, Sr. when asked how he sense he might feel during his upcoming consecration. “I’ve seen people go into it. I think it’ll be more of an excitement and relief.”

Relieved much like his customary light exercise just before sunset Sunday in his mostly quiet neighborhood.

Only this time, such a relief will unfold on a much larger stage, a long-awaited promotion accompanied by heaven’s endorsement.

Which, of course, means if God said it, that settles it.

DALLAS — For Shirley Jackson, it was an adjustment worth making, one that essentially changed the overall landscape of her life.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — For Shirley Jackson, the past two-plus years have brought about a renewed sense of appeasement and wholeness, not to mention a newfound disposition on life, particularly since she and Andrew Jackson, Sr. tied the knot on October 5, 2015. And, in the coming days, Shirley Jackson will join her husband in St. Louis, where he will witness what figures to be arguably one of the most memorable moments in his illustrious pastoral career. Andrew Jackson, Sr. will officially be consecrated to the office of Bishopric during the COGIC’s 110th National Holy Convocation.

“It’s been a blessing, to be honest,” Jackson, during an interview this week with Making Headlines News, said when asked how to assess her marriage to the retired Andrew Jackson, Sr., the Founder and former Senior Pastor of Faith Temple Ministries Church of God In Christ. “I had to adjust to him because I was by myself for over 30 years.”

A native of Grady, Arkansas, Andrew Jackson, Sr. will officially be consecrated to the Office of Bishopric during the COGIC’s 110th National Holy Convocation November 6-14.

The Holy Convocation is the annual gathering of the members of the COGIC, during which they assemble for praise and worship services, the purpose of electing bishops to the General Board, and creating strategic plans for national meetings for the ensuing year.

A Pentecostal Holiness Christian denomination with a predominantly African-American membership, the Church of God In Christ is comprised of nearly five million members throughout the United States and roughly 12,000 congregations.

Widely regarded as the largest Pentecostal church and the fifth largest Christian church in the U.S., COGIC-based institutions can be found in more than 60 countries. Interestingly, its worldwide membership is comprised of somewhere in the neighborhood of six-to-eight million members.

Also, there are more than 15,000 COGIC congregations globally.

While Shirley Jackson describes Andrew Jackson’s much-anticipated elevation to the church’s highest office as “long overdue,” she is especially grateful that this admirable exploit will finally come to fruition, in large part because her husband’s faith-based resume in the Body of Christ is such that he essentially had positioned himself for such a time as now.

“He deserves it,” Shirley Jackson said of her husband’s forthcoming consecration. “I knew this was something he really wanted. This is something he’s worked 47 years for.”

Long before Andrew and Shirley Jackson had exchanged nuptials, Shirley had become a fixture throughput the Mid-South-area medical sector. A graduate of the University of Memphis with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, Shirley Jackson had spent more than four decades as a nursing professional, most notably eight years both in Case Management and OB-GYN, three years as part of Emergency Room Procedures, and 11 years in Medical Surgery Assistance. A nursing tenure that began in 1974 until her retirement in 2015, Shirley Jackson’s career also includes having worked as a school nurse for both the Memphis and Shelby County Schools systems from 2006-2010.

To grasp a thorough concept of why the former Faith Temple Ministries’ pastor has earned his way to the church’s most covenant office, look no further than the immeasurable foundation he laid for an institution he founded in 1969 in the heart of South Memphis before calling it a career in June 2016.

“He’s (been) working the office of a bishop all along as 1 Timothy tells us,” Shirley Jackson said. “He’s birthed a lot of pastors out of his church and he was the husband to one wife for 58 years.”

Interestingly, she is the mother of three daughters (Angela Anderson, Kimberly King, and Alisha Perry), and has four grandchildren (Cameron Farwell, Karington Boyd, Kaleb King, and Kalani King).

“He’s been a blessing to me and my girls,” Shirley Jackson said of her husband’s impact on her and her family. “They honor him because he gives them sound advice. He’s helped me to learn to love people where they are. He’s given me so much insight as it relates to my spiritual growth.”

To her husband’s credit, it is the kind of awareness to which many throughout the Body of Christ can greatly attest, the kind of insight by which many will surely reflect upon and celebrate once Andrew Jackson, Sr. is officially consecrated in the coming days.

“He’s helped so many people,” Shirley Jackson said of her husband’s well-publicized pastoral legacy. “So this is something he’s worked for and earned.”

All while making the proper — and necessary — adjustments in the process.
