Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

7:22 PM - He Washed My Eyes With Tears

I remember gospel singer Jack Holcomb on the radio in the early 1970's. At that young I didn't like his unique style of singing. After so much personal hardship since then his music is sweet to me now. Nobody sang from deep within his heart more than Jack, probably because he suffered so much in his short life. Jack was not an entertainer. He sang 100% for Jesus. It's ashamed he and his music is all but forgotten except for his recordings on Youtube. A playlist can be heard here.

---------------------------

Gospel Singer. Harold "Jack" Holcomb, a minister and gospel recording artist was born and raised in Waco,Texas. He hosted a radio program in California and was evangelist Jack Shuller's song leader. He returned to Waco and recorded many gospel music albums and traveled around the country preaching and singing at groups and churches. In 1963 he was named "Mr. Gospel Music" by RCA Records.

Jack did not have an easy life, coming from a poor family. He lost his first wife just a few years into their marriage. He remarried, but in 1953 his first child Jo Ellen died in a tragic accident; before she could be buried a tornado struck and destroyed the funeral home and most of downtown Waco. He found his daughter's body and she was buried in Waco Memorial Park.

Jack suffered heart attacks throughout the 1960s. In the summer of 1968, when Jack was only 47 years old, he was to meet with executives in Dallas to plan his next record, but died of heart failure in his hotel. Jack was buried in Waco memorial park next to his beloved daughter.
