Welcome to our spot on sermonaudio.com | edit page
Teachings based on the Hebrew and Greek texts and culture. Learn truths of predestination, reprobation and God's absolute sovereignty. We relentlessly expose today's apostasy, the casting-off of the daily cross, wicked traditions of men and so-called 'free-will'.

About Jim: I have been preaching and teaching Bible for 40 years. I began studying in 1957 just out of high school. After many years of traveling on the road with one disappointment after another, I quit preaching for some years. I tried my hand at business with moderate financial success. Through this God dealt severely with my health scourging me( Heb 12:5-8) causing me to repent of this self seeking journey that was destroying me.
I had gotten active in a church seeking the Lord to some degree while pursuing a career in real estate. God crushed me and put me in and out of the hospital over a 2-3 year period. I was in my early and mid 40's. This was 16-18 years ago. I was familiar with those "hard" truths ever since I was young ( in my early 20's). I had always been blunt and unafraid to get straight with people. However, I was afraid to preach completely with great plainness ( II Cor 3:12). Up to this point ( mid 1980's) I was afraid that if I preached the total picture of predestination that I would starve to death, because I thought that it would make nothing but enemies.
God dealt with me starting 1980-81 bringing me to what I believed to be my deathbed in 1985-86. I woke up in the hospital near death crying out to God, "Lord, you are going to kill me if I don't quit living for myself and say all the truth in my power." I began to say these blunt plain words that has appealed to you elect sheep. I began to make more enemies than I could have ever imagined. But the wonderful surprise was that God had a predestinated elect family and he had written these words in their hearts. They began to gravitate toward this ministry.
At first it was very slow and gradual. I became sick and tired of the mush gospel that churches were preaching. My family was confused. My wife and I would be coming home from church and she would say, " he said such and such last week and he said so and so this week contradicting what he said last week." I began to tell my wife Mary, " Don't listen to the preacher. He doesn't know what he is talking about." Finally, I said, " this is a waste of time. We are going home. We are not going to these churches anymore. I will teach you at home."
Twelve years ago we started Grace and Truth, with my wife and son and one other young man. I started taping shortly thereafter. About 3 months later I started buying local radio time. We meet in my basement now running 35-40 people on Sunday morning. However, we reach hundreds of thousands of people on TV and Radio in 15-18 cities. We are giving away tapes in all these cities. ( 3000-4000 a month). God is blessing and we are reaching the elect.
Update as of April 2003- Grace and Truth is now meeting in a building in Hendersonville, TN. We gave away close to 50,000 DVDs last year free of charge. We are adding TV stations regularly (public access), anywhere we can get the truth out to reach the sheep with ears to hear. Though Jim is extremely busy studying to prepare for 6 hours of teaching a week, he continues to take phone calls from sheep seeking answers. Stay in contact. Leave messages, write or email and let Jim and Mary know how the tapes are helping you.
