Truly missed in this life, eternal in the next. Love to Jim's family. Prayer thought Cindy. Jim and I shared many thoughts of our great God and saviour Jesus Christ. Met Jim on paltalk, and it was as I had known him forever. God's word is the commonality of the sealing likeminded holy Spirit. Love in Christ Bill J.

Jim Brackin or Jim Ol Boy as I initially knew him on Paltalk back in 2004 was an individual who played a HUGE role in bringing the truth of the Grace of God to me personally. His steadfast devotion to teaching the word of God rightly divided was wonderful. When I heard of his passing I was both saddened and joyful. Saddened because he has left the company of his brothers and sisters in Christ here, but joyful that we all know where he is and will be when we all in the body of Christ join him eternally.

I just found out that my dear friend Jim Brackin has passed. I will never forget him, his voice and his great ability to teach the word with clarity and truth. My respect for him goes beyond measure. I am so grateful for him and the ministry he once had on Paltalk. My edification would never have gotten this far without him. It was a precious moment in my life that is still bearing fruit today.

Love and hugs to the family as they adjust their lives without him. I am so looking forward to seeing him again - and hopefully soon!

Cindy I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing but rejoicing with you and the family that Jim was saved and sealed. I loved the Pal Talk teachings and have missed them so much. Oh and I love the ButNow. Jim opened my eyes to so many truths our Apostle Paul had for the Body of Christ. Praying for you and the family and we know the peace that surpasses all understanding, the joy we all share in knowing that one day we will all meet. We have that blessed hope. I thank you for the dedication each day that you and Jim would have to Pal Talk in order that we would all gather to learn. It took dedication and sometimes it was very hard on Jim's health to continue on but he did just that to be sure that we would know the Mystery and the knowledge that Christ wanted us to have so that we would understand and live in grace. Thank you so much for all you did to sacrifice your time and your love for each one of us. <3

I'm sorry to hear of the passing of Brother Jim and for your loss, but know there will be a reunion for those of us, who, like Brother Jim, trusted the Lord believing the word of truth, the gospel of our salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). I am one of many who were blessed by his ministry.

1 Thessalonians 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Jim Brackin will be remembered and missed by many here on earth, but anyone who knew him knows what a strong testimony he had for our Lord and Savior. I know he is at peace, and proudly looking down at all of his family. I am so thankful for everything he did that made his son Willie turn out to be such a kind, sweet and caring person. I am so happy to call Willie my son in law, him and Chelsey were made for each other. And because of their love for each other, we have Waylon. Jim will continue to live on through all of his precious children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
