What The Omega Letter Means To Me
''The Omega Letter has served as an institute of higher learning for me''

In 1995 I went to a movie theatre with my mother and my oldest son. We were there to see the movie, “Schindlerʼs List” which is about a man that saved hundreds of Jews during the years of insanity when Adolf Hitler was trying to conquer the world.
I sat through that movie with a mind that was filled with horror and shame at the atrocities committed on those people. When we walked to our car after the movie was over, I kept saying, “How could that happen?” I had read about the Holocaust and I had seen other movies but nothing had ever affected me the way that movie did.
In the following days and weeks, I became preoccupied with what I had seen and I spent nearly every lunch hour at the library pouring over books on the Holocaust. I checked out books and read nearly every night, trying to make some sense out of it all.
And then I became obsessed with the Jews and my research took me to the years before World War II and I found myself going back through the entire history of the Jewish people. The more I read, the more I saw a common theme. Persecution, hatred and horrible superstitions.
I traveled through the 1900s and the 1800s and 1700s and back and back and back. I went all the way back to the Bible and then as I read, it all started making sense. More than one person must have thought I had gone a little crazy because I found myself sharing what I was learning with folks that didnʼt really want to listen.
I was one of those people that had went to church (alone) as a young girl and teenager. My heart had been thrilled at the story of the Gospel and I thought I gave my heart to Jesus when I was twelve years old.
After high school, I made some mistakes and did some things that seemed to me were unforgivable. I bought into the big lie that God didnʼt want me any more and I lived throughout my 20s and 30s with my relationship with Christ as a distant memory. I truly believed that the window to heaven had been closed and there was nothing I could do would open it back up.
With all the reading I was doing about the Jewish people, one day I stumbled on the Messianic Jews. I found out about them on the internet and the more I read, the more I started wondering if perhaps I had been wrong about my separation from the Lord. I wondered if in fact, He had been with me all along and had protected me and loved me even when I was convinced He didnʼt.
In November of 2002 at 3:00 a.m. I sat reading my Bible. In those past few weeks I had been treated to a replay of my life and all my sins had come back to haunt me. I was believing that I was so lost that I would never find my way back. As I read the words, “and the truth shall set you free” it came up off of that page as if they suddenly became 3D and my heart was flooded with such a powerful love and I knew that I was saved. It was a night that I will never forget. I have never doubted that I am His since.
I started reading the Omega Letter shortly after that night. I stumbled upon it while reading some of Hal Lindseyʼs material on the internet. The Omega Letter has served as an institute of higher learning for me.
Jack Kinsella is the best teacher I have ever had. I have laughed, cried, been outraged, felt hope and been comforted during these days when everything on the outside looks as if it is falling apart.
The Omega Letter has been a lifeline for me. I have shared pages with others and seen changes in their lives because of the words Jack has written. I have never met Jack but I feel like he is a wise uncle, a protective big brother and a really cool buddy.
He has blessed me and untold others with the words he writes from his heart. I would say, that one of the best things that has happened to me was discovering this daily blessing. My life has been enriched in countless ways from reading the precious and priceless Omega Letter.
