David Wilkerson’s Last Blog

David Wilkerson went home to be with Jesus tonight after a fatal car crash (news article).  What a legacy!  What an impact!  Here is a repost of the blog he wrote hours before going home.

WHEN ALL MEANS FAIL

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.

    Reverend David Wilkerson was a man of God. He is a very special asset’s of Christ. I know many servant of the Lord, but he was special for me as well as millions of many others. I missed him when I go to Times Square Church it was my pleasure to see him, but no more. I know he is with My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God Bless all his families. He was sweet and a blessed man of God. I love him the most. He changed my life for good.

    I have read many of Bro. Wilkerson’s writings over the past 40 years, but this blog entry is as profound as anything he ever wrote. It is the words of a man who has utterly and completely committed his trust in the Lord and knows that ultimately the outcome will bring glory to Jesus. It has encouraged me greatly over the past year!
