God Bless The Memory Of Dr. David Wilkerson

May the Lord bless the memory and continued works of the man who's faith caused him to place his life efforts into reaching those whom many had given up on. Please say a prayer for his family and the recovery of his wife.

Update: May 3rd 2011~ Dr. Wilkerson's funeral was held yesterday May 2nd. The following was his last blog entry:

To believe when all means fail is exceedingly pleasing to God and is most acceptable. Jesus said to Thomas, “You have believed because you have seen, but blessed are those that do believe and have not seen” (John 20:29).

Blessed are those who believe when there is no evidence of an answer to prayer—who trust beyond hope when all means have failed.

Someone has come to the place of hopelessness—the end of hope—the end of all means. A loved one is facing death and doctors give no hope. Death seems inevitable. Hope is gone. The miracle prayed for is not happening.

That is when Satan’s hordes come to attack your mind with fear, anger, overwhelming questions: “Where is your God now? You prayed until you had no tears left. You fasted. You stood on promises. You trusted.”

Blasphemous thoughts will be injected into your mind: “Prayer failed. Faith failed. Don’t quit on God—just do not trust him anymore. It doesn’t pay!”

Even questioning God’s existence will be injected into your mind. These have been the devices of Satan for centuries. Some of the godliest men and women who ever lived were under such demonic attacks.

To those going through the valley and shadow of death, hear this word: Weeping will last through some dark, awful nights—and in that darkness you will soon hear the Father whisper, “I am with you. I cannot tell you why right now, but one day it will all make sense. You will see it was all part of my plan. It was no accident. It was no failure on your part. Hold fast. Let me embrace you in your hour of pain.”

Beloved, God has never failed to act but in goodness and love. When all means fail—his love prevails. Hold fast to your faith. Stand fast in his Word. There is no other hope in this world. ~ Dr. David Wilkerson 34/27/2011

    My thoughts and prayers to Brother Wilkerson's wife and family (both natural and spiritual families). He truly inspired me (from years ago when I was a young christian), and I respected the spirit of commitment he possessed for fulfilling the work that was of God; I know he is rejoicing in God's presence now! Amen!

  3. I have followed David Wilkerson's writings since I was a teenager in the '70s. He truly inspired me. His "prophetic edge" could make you uncomfortable, afraid, doubtful, hopeful, you name it--all at the same time. It was a mixed bag of emotions; but his words were always worth our consideration and application. I read his daily devotions blog often--at home or on my mobile phone and looked forward to "an encouraging word from a trusted friend" every time I logged on. I will miss that, but thank God for the trail of works he left behind for reference. I believe his messages will be around a long time.
