Birth Determines Identity

Posted by Jackie Keating on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, In : Article 

Nearly 25 years ago, God gave me a life-changing impartation through a powerfully anointed man of God named, Dr. Bill Gillham, about the old nature vs. the new nature, and our true identity in Christ.  I still carry this revelation with me today, and, by God’s Grace, I hope to pass it on to you.   

Birth determines identity.  In the natural realm, we were born human from our human parents.  We didn’t have to grow up to become a human being.  We were human the second we were born.  Your...

From A Mother's Pain Follow-up

Posted by Jackie Keating on Monday, May 21, 2012, In : Article 
It's only been a few days since I posted my last article, From A Mother's Pain.  God has moved powerfully in these last few days and I felt compelled to share it with you.  After I posted the article, I received an email from my niece, who has a doctorate in Christian family counseling.  She wanted me to know that she had read the article and wanted to share her thoughts.  She said I vividly portrayed my struggle and pain over my daughter's salvation, and understood that as a mother I wanted ...

From A Mother's Pain

Posted by Jackie Keating on Saturday, May 19, 2012, In : Article 

If you lose a child while still wondering about their salvation; the wondering becomes worse than the loss itself.

If you can relate to this comment, then you are in the right place. One day, out of shear desperation, I found myself searching the internet for an article such as this, and found very little. I found several comforting websites but nothing specific to this kind of torment. I am very familiar with your pain, and I wrote this article for you.

I am a born-again believer. I seek...

The following testimony is from a lady who has profoundly affected my life.  Her commitment to prayer sets the bar for those of us who call Empty Vessels home.  Be blessed in the Name of the Lord.


The Prophetic Word of God
by Debbie Jean Dodson
September 18, 2010

If we could just take a step back and look at where we once were and where we are now we could see the Prophetic Word of God as it has happened in our life.  We may not always feel like doing what God has called us to do, but do you re...

Who Am I - Really? How God Showed Me My True Identity in Christ

Posted by Jackie Keating on Thursday, September 9, 2010, In : Article 
Have you ever stumbled across a phrase or sentence, or even a movie (Finding Nemo was a huge one for me), that finally took what you were carrying around in your head, sometimes for years, and placed it directly into your heart? That’s exactly what happened to me about a year ago. I was reading a book about how we died in Christ and became a new creation, and stumbled upon a simple phrase in the form of a question that changed my life. I love when that happens. Actually, I don’t even reme...

Rocky II (Like You've Never Seen Before)

Posted by Jackie Keating on Thursday, April 8, 2010, In : Article 
Don’t you just love God’s creative ways when talking to us?  He talks to me through movies.  One that comes to mind is Rocky II.

He started with the scene where Rocky asks Adrian to marry him, then He went to the wedding scene, and the walk home. I loved that Rocky carried Adrian the entire way home.  Whata guy!  The next scene was their marriage bed, where he kissed her lips so tenderly (Men, hang in there to the end; it gets better, I promise!).  It was at this point, He began to speak ...
