The Looks of Derrick W. Jackson

Welcome to The Promise Online Baptist Church

Hello, My name is Brother Derrick W. Jackson and I am ecstatic and proud to show you my social media church / Online Church.  While I am a new Minister (Please note I have not been ordained nor do I have a minister's license but I have answered the call to spread the word) I am not new to the church and worshipping Jesus Christ.  I'm his human clay that he is molding every day, in other words I'm not perfect and have made a lot of mistakes that I do not want others to repeat.

As the fires burn in California we pray for the victims.  Life shows us all the time that we are not always in control and bad things happen to good people.  A lot of times we scream out, "WHY GOD!!!!"  Several months ago I broke down on Labernum Avenue in Richmond, Virginia screaming, "He plays games with peoples lives!!"  God is not like man and remember he loves you unconditionally. And life does not turn out as we expect it but we know  "his will be done".

(Matthew 8:10) (8) Again the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; (9) And he saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou will fall down and worship me. (10) Then saith Jesus unto him. Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God,  and him only shalt thou serve.

Another way that he got "uncomfortable" for us was that he died on the cross for us.  Jesus foretold he would be taken and sacrificed for our sins but he asked the lord to pass this cup at Gethsemane.

Matthew 26:39 - And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt…
