Holly Mills

Sometimes God brings about a need in an organization and then fills that need through a special individual. This happened to us 2002. Although never having written articles to that point, Holly Mills joined the only other correspondent at the time, Brooks Alden, and began writing a column using the tagline, “As I See It.” It wasn’t long before letters began flowing in telling us how her messages were so inspiring and heartfelt.

Holly is one of the fortunate ones who have known of the Israel Truth message from youth and it has always sustained her through her life’s journey. She had a successful career in the airline industry but always found time for charitable pursuits. She hosted an Israel Truth Bible Study for three years and takes every opportunity to immerse herself in other studies of Scripture. Perhaps her greatest strength is that she writes what she feels so passionately.

In the movie “A Few Good Men” a US Navy lawyer, played by Tom Cruise, says to Colonel Jessup, played by Jack Nicholson, who is on the witness stand, “I want the truth”. Colonel Jessup replies in a loud voice “You can’t handle the truth!” I can’t help but think that this is exactly what we could say about our world today, we “can’t handle the truth”. Truth seems to be something we know nothing about. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines truth as: - the truth: the real facts about something: the things that are true: the quality or state of being true: a statement or idea that is true or accepted as true.

The Bible says in Eph. 4:21 “If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:”, in Ex. 34:6 “And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,”, in Psa. 15:2 “He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.”, in Psa. 25:5 “Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”, in Ephesians 5:9 “(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)”, in John 8:31-32 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”, in John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”


“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”(Rom. 1:22-25).

We look at what’s going on in the world today and say “What happened, everything seems to be falling apart?” What happened is that we abandoned God and chose to follow our worldly ways thinking that we know best. The unfortunate part of this decision is that we are causing our own destruction and along the way taking many innocent victims with us in our fall. Just as in the Garden of Eden we are choosing to believe a lie rather than the truth of God. God is truth and truth always prevails. When we abandon God and His laws and choose to live a lie we create a world that is full of destruction and chaos. Our sin brings about the moral decay that leads to destruction and our own collapse. We will receive the natural penalty that we deserve. “But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out.” (Num. 32:23). There is a natural result from our sin against God and His laws.


“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14)

201308-millsWe all know that we need to drink water. Humans can only last approximately 3 to 5 days without any water, some healthier individuals a day or so longer. We can certainly survive much longer without food, so we know that water is very important for our bodies. I am beginning to realize how amazing it is that we put so little effort into drinking the proper amount of water every day, when it is so important to our bodies and therefore our health. I received this email the other day and thought that I would include it in my article, as it certainly appears to be good advice.

“How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night!! Heart Attack and Water - I never knew all of this! Interesting....... Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor-Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs, etc.) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!


“And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.” (Isa. 42:16)

I am writing this article at the beginning of December 2012 and as I believe many things could happen before the end of the year I am writing as I know them to be now. We are soon beginning a new year and the world does seem like a very dark place in so many ways. There are many bright spots of course and even in this fallen world God has blessed us with many things to be thankful for. Unfortunately though, there is much darkness, like the darkness before the dawn, we know this will be the case before the Lord’s return.
