Let’s go into and fellowship at Zion Merciful Temple in Chicago, Illinois where the honorable Reverend Dr. Keith Jackson is about to preach his sermon, and the devil is about to have an impact on his spiritual soul of who he is, and questioning what he stands for. It all started when he was pasturing at the All Saints Tabernacle Church in Memphis, Tennessee. He was preaching the word, and the Holy Ghost just took over the service, and the congregation was rejoicing in God’s name, but Anita Montgomery was rejoicing with a plan of her own of evil antics. It wasn’t God’s will, but the devil’s mission in pulling down Rev. Jackson on the pulpit.
You see, Anita Montgomery was looking for a man to take care of her, and because Dr. Jackson was a bachelor, here was her opportunity. Every time the Pastor would preach, there was Ms. Montgomery toying with the idea of the parting of the Red Sea. It caught the Pastor’s attention, but because he was under the anointing, he claimed victory. At least, that is what he thought. You heard the saying, “The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak”. After church service, he spoke to Sister Montgomery, and asked her out for a date. It’s the devil’s road to comdamnation. Well, they did go out, and of course, the problems started. Sister Montgomery had Reverend Jackson under her web in the sack, drinking, partying, and even into drug usage. It was noticeable among the church members, and had an impact on his daily sermons. His preaching was words with no meaning nor substance. That night while Reverend Jackson was sleeping, a vision of God stating, “Feed my sheep”, and the kingdom of heaven was at hand along with a burning hell was illustrated. It was like a lightening bolt that jolted Dr. Jackson into reality.
It was Sunday morning, the congregation shall be told the truth. The hour of 11:00 am had arrived, and this was going to be a sermon to top all sermons. Reverend Jackson stated he and Sister Montgomery had an affair on the dark side of sin, and the relationship was over. Sister Montgomery stood up in the midst of the service, and began to rebuke Reverend Jackson. Like a voice from heaven, he told her, “Peace be still as I have victory within myself, and I have repented for what I have done, and God has accepted as his own. Reverend Jackson urged Sister Montgomery to seek salvation while it can be found, since you are in the house of the Lord, here is your alter call. She declined, and left the church. Dr. Jackson stepped down too because he failed the congregation, and not a revelation for God, but with a new vision of hope, and destiny of desire to do God’s work, and witnessing as God’s ambassador.
It’s a beautiful Sunday morning at Zion Merciful Temple in Chicago as the tambourines are flowing, the choir is singing, souls are being saved, and Reverend Jackson’s sermons are inspiriting, and the past is truly behind him. He even met his own Jackson mate by way of Patricia, who was a missionary, and as the story goes lived in holy bliss. The doors of the church are open, and all are welcome. Bring your souls, and hear what God has to say. Light of the world, the footsteps of your path leading you to the harlow rainbow showers of many blessings.
