Jeep Wrangler will not start

I am in need of a little help. I have a 1990 Jeep Wrangler with 4.2L. My Jeep will not start. Actions taken are listed below:
-Had Alternator checked it passed.
-Had starter checked it passed.
-Checked to make sure there was spark from the coil.. It does..
-Put gas in the carborator it is sounded like it wanted to start it even popped a few times but again no go.
-Have the battery on a charger right now.
-Put in new ignition control module.

The engine does crank when battery is charged and on jumper cables. Please any help would be appreciated.
