J. Clark Ministries consists of writing and speaking, with an emphasis on biblical life assessment-helping people see to what point they are living their lives in accordance to biblical teaching and principles.
John began writing to fulfill a lifetime dream of becoming a published author. He published his first book in 2008 entitled, “God’s Healing Hope:Breaking the Strongholds of Wrong Thinking.” Since that time God has confirmed through a variety of ways that he has a gift of writing to be used to the glory of God. The basic intent of his writing is to bring people to experience God’s love and grace through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In 2011, John also experienced a very clear divine directive of God to become a teacher of God’s Word through speaking.
In addition to his book, John has several hundred articles posted on Faithwriters. He has two published poems, one in “This Time Around: Setting Sail,” and the other, along with his biography, in “Who’s Who In American Poetry.” Both anthologies are compiled by Eber and Wein Publishing. One of his articles and poems are each in the top 100 posts of Faithwriters. John has also written a practical guide for life assessment designed for Christian young adults. For a time John was a member of the nationwide writing team for TBL Faith News, a Christian website ministry and news source.
His topics deal with freedom of religious expression, politics, current events, heartwarming stories, general biblical teaching, and prophecy.
Several years ago, in his Bible reading, Psalm 71:17-18 and 78:6-7 were impressed upon his mind as the basis of this ministry: “O God, you have taught me from my youth; And I still declare your wondrous deeds. And even when I am old and gray, O God, do not forsake me, until I declare your strength to this generation, your power to all who are to come…that the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, that they might arise and tell them to their children, that they should put their confidence in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments.”
1. God exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, and God the Holy Spirit, who indwells each individual believer.
2. Each person is a unique creation of God. Therefore, every person is ultimately accountable to God. It also means that human life is to be treated with dignity and respect from the time of conception (Psalm 139:13-16).
3. Jesus was and is God in human flesh, who came to earth supernaturally implanted in the womb of Mary, to redeem mankind from his sinful and fallen nature, through His literal and physical death and resurrection, to all who call upon Him for individual salvation. Salvation is not automatic nor universal. In Acts 4:12 Jesus Himself said that He is the only way to God and eternal salvation. See also Romans 10:9-10.
4. Mankind has a sinful nature and is unable to save himself (Romans 5:12).
5. Salvation cannot be earned by works or by following any type of law. It is only by grace through faith in God’s redemptive work (Ephesians 2:8-9).
6. The Bible is the Word of God, written by divinely inspired authors (II Timothy 3:16 and II Peter 1:20-21).
7. All believers should seek to live godly lives in obedience to Christ’s commands, not to earn salvation, but to live a life consistent with their new spiritual nature.
8. Jesus is coming back to earth to gather together those who have called upon His name for their salvation, and to judge those who have rejected Him.
