Last words of David Wilkerson

I have just learned about the passing of a great man of God - David Wilkerson - who was killed in a car accident on 27 April 2011.

Not only is he known by his best-selling book, "The Cross and the Switchblade" but many including myself have been greatly blessed by his sermons and other books written by him. Also known as a prophet to America (though not considered as one by himself), his hard-hitting messages of repentance and the love of God have been instrumental in leading many to the Kingdom of God. The urgent message that he has given on an earth-shattering calamity in 2009 is still fresh in our minds.

Apparently, he has left his last words in his last post of the Daily Devotions and may all of us who are still on this side be encouraged to hold fast to the great God whom David faithfully served. What a loving and mighty God we serve: -

“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,’” Wilkerson wrote. “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.”

  1. I often find comfort or encouragement when I'm viewing David's life testimony as it continues to speak to me today, even this day
