Jonsquill -- Biblical insight that seeks to feed the whole person.


About Jonsquill
English (USA)

The Daily Thought was published on the Internet for several decades. It began with the intent of trying to compress into the area of a single book page worthwhile Biblical teaching that will meet the needs of the total Christian. It is continued in frequent Thought for Today meditations expanded as we draw closer to the end of the age. Much of the teaching these days is concentrated in Eschatology, the Study of Last Things.
The reader should find material for study, contemplation, devotion, and meditation over the course of each month.

Because the writers intend to meet those needs the subscriber will find the topics wide ranging, but always based in the Word of God. Ideas for future thoughts are often proposed by subscribers as they ask questions, offer comment and make suggestions mailed to

The topics covered are intended to be responsive, as much as possible to the suggestions of members of the list. In a sense the Daily Thought is interactive. At times questions raised among the members are responded to individually.

Pastors are welcome to use material they read here in their own preaching endeavors. The desire is to be Gospel sharers with all who love the Lord Jesus Christ and the hope of His appearing.

The Biblical text of the ministry is primarily the Authorized Version also known as the King James Bible. References to original tongues will use the Hebrew Masoretic and the Greek Textus Receptus unless some other is referred to specifically for exposure purposes.

The material contained in the messages follow literal and conservative rules of interpretation, seeking to express the Word of God simply, clearly, and honestly. The only warning that can be affixed to our work is that if you are not a Christian, or unwilling to expose yourself to the precepts of the Most High, you should not go here.
