THE PASSING OF DAVID WILKERSON
Hello again folks! It is indeed, on one level, so very sad to have heard earlier today that Pastor David Wilkerson has died at the age of 79 in a road traffic accident in east Texas; but for True believers - tragic as this news is - on the other hand it is a release for him and it was the time to meet His Saviour at his appointed time:
David Wilkerson is a hero to many, many True Christians. Someone who was not afraid to do the difficult things called for in the Christian walk that include putting aside the home comforts of ones personal and family life and replacing it with a fierce loyalty to His Lord and the work of His Saviour. Most of us all know [or know of] his famous book [and film] "The Cross and the Switchblade" and ensuing publications. But Pastor David Wilkerson was so much more than that. He founded the Times Square Church in NYC in an area that many wouldn't; he authored many biblical publications; preached the True Gospel to and around the world and left a telling spiritual heritage to millions of people both in person and on-line. His successor Pastor Carter Conlon is a 'chip of the old block' too. He wasn't perfect - he made mistakes too - but to this writer; he was a shining light in an ever darkening spiritual climate in which the [so-called' 'church'] increasingly failed to do the duties to which it was supposedly called. Rest in peace David Wilkerson - I truly hope that many of those blessed by your ministry see you on the other side and embrace you.
DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 28-Apr-2011
