An update on Mels Carbonell.

 An update on Mels Carbonell. Hal Haller informed me that he visited with Mels at an assisted living facility in Ellijay, Georgia. While Betty and I went to visit our kids and grand-kids in Athens area, I decided to drive to Ellijay to visit with Mels.

We have been friends for over 56 years. We met at Boca Raton, Florida Youth Camp and then as students at Florida Bible College.

As I walked into the dining room area, I saw Mels sitting with three other men. As soon as he turned to see who came into the room, He immediately called out my name, “Yankee”, stood and walked over to give me a big bear hug. I knew there was a possibility that he may not recognize me, but I was grateful that he did.

Mels looked great, sounded upbeat and was very happy someone came to see him. There were some simple things Mels could not answer for me, but we both talked about many things we did in the past about the Lord’s work. He recalled them well.

Mels was a soul-winner, and his life was about reaching the lost through every means available. He had the largest one-year anniversary with over 1,500 in attendance. Mels was a motivator who truly loved the Lord. Mels conducted the West Coast Youth Ranch where 1,000’s trusted the Lord and 100’s attended the Florida Bible College.

Before I stood up from the table to leave, I grabbed his hand and prayed for him. When I said amen, he grabbed my hand with both hands and then he prayed for me to keep winning souls. Some things may have slipped his mind, but he remembers the main things.

If you would like to send him a card, I’m sure he would love to hear from you even though he may not remember you. Do not expect a response.

85 Highland Ridge Road Ellijay, GA 30540

Lest than a mile down the road, I had to pull over and have a little time with the Lord. Mels had a great place to spend his remaining days, good food, and great care. I was so glad, but at the same time, I was so sad to see the path that many of God’s saints may have to take. Then I looked a little further down the road and saw the end where we will all win. Sin is ugly, but the grace and goodness of God is beautiful.


It won’t be long now, so keep looking up!

The Judge of the Divine Court of Justice Rules against Abortion


The only thing God has to produce a man, or a woman is from a little child. Little children come from being born.

Mat 18:6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 

Mat 18:14  Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. 

Mat_19:14  But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Mar_10:14  But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Luk_18:16  But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

To purposefully kill little babies is willingly taking away the life and purpose of those whom Christ loves.

I pray that you will not enjoy this sermon on where the Judge of the Divine Court of Justice stands. If you dislike it, please share it so others will feel the same way.

A true Christmas message from Yankee and Betty

Yankee Arnold Ministries

In the Old Testament, the LORD gave Israel 7 Feast Days that were memorials to remind the people of coming events dealing with the Messiah. There are no commands for his children today to celebrate any of these feast days except when we partake of the Lord’s Supper, and we look back to the events surrounding the Passover. I don’t believe the Lord is offended when we voluntarily choose to celebrate His birth and Resurrection.

The Son

Isaiah 9:6-7 (KJV)

6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Psalm 2:7-8 (KJV)

7  I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Proverbs 30:4 (KJV)

4  Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?

Micah 5:2-4 (KJV)

2  But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

3  Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

4  And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.

Zechariah 9:9 (KJV)

9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

The Messiah to be a light to the Gentiles

Isaiah 42:6 (KJV)

6  I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

 Isaiah 11:10 (KJV)

10  And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

Isaiah 49:5-6 (KJV)

5  And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.

6  And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

Time of Messiah’s Coming

Daniel 9:25-26 (KJV)

25  Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

26  And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Messiah was to come and be cut off before the destruction of the 2nd Temple, which was destroyed by Titus of Roman in 70 A.D.

The Messiah is not to Remain in the Grave

Psalm 16:9-10 (KJV)

9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

10  For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Zechariah 12:9-10 (KJV)

9  And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Had you heard that Yankee retired from the ministry? Don’t believe a word of it! I have never been more involved as I am now. We have enjoyed a wonderful 2021. We were on the road about 5 months of the year with many speaking opportunities. Your prayers for our health, safety, and fruitfulness produced great results with many souls being saved and believers challenged to serve the Lord by finishing well. Changing my position on the firing line has been very effective at this stage of my life.

Betty and I would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a bright and prosperous new year in the Lord. Keep us in your prayers.

Here are some ways to stay connected.
