Reverend David WilkersonDear friends and family in Christ in Australia and around the World.

Following is the link to an article from Christian Broadcasting News (International Media Ministry of American Evangelist Pat Robertson) regarding the tragic death on Wednesday 27th April of our dear brother and Pastor David Wilkerson, the founder of Times Square Church in NY City and author of the well-known book ‘The Cross and the Switchblade”.

Pr Daniel stated, “I was greatly saddened when I heard the news of brother David Wilkerson’s tragic death in a car accident. We all know that this man of God was a great hero and tremendous ambassador for our Lord Jesus Christ.

In today’s society, it’s very rare to find a Christian leader who has the guts to stand up for what he believes. Certainly, Pastor David Wilkerson was a man who always stood for the truth of the uncompromising Word of God, no matter the cost.

We all must pray for his wife who is in critical condition in the hospital due to the accident.

Some years ago in Washington D.C. I had the unique opportunity to meet Pastor David Wilkerson and Nicky Cruz in addition to meeting him once again with my wife in Melbourne several years ago.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, members of his church, and supporters of his prophetic ministry around the world.”

    This is extremely sad & there will be much sorrow to lose this Great Man of God. How I loved his teachings & admired his faithfulness & intergrity & love for God & mankind.

    God has brought wife Gwen through many painful & difficult seasons, battles with cancer and may He deliver her once again through another Gethsemane experience.

    Dear friends – just read on http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2011 (Pat Robertson’s site) that David Wilkerson founding pastor of Times Square Church in NY City and author of the well-known book ‘the Cross and the switchblade” was killed Wednesday 27 in a head on collision in Texas. He was 79.

    Recently a few of his prophesies have been circulating. It says that he was driving east on U.S. 175 in Texas Wednesday afternoon, and moved into the opposite lane where a tractor trailer was driving westbound. The truck driver saw the car and tried to move out of the way, but sill collided with the pastor’s car head on, according to Public Safety Trooper Eric Long. His wife Gwen was also involved in the crash and rushed to the hospital, along with the truck driver. Wilkerson was pronounced dead on the scene. Well, now he knows it all that’s for sure. blessings Lil

    “A Mighty One has Gone!”

    April 28, 2011

    Rev. David Wilkerson has died! He left this earth on April 27, 2011.
    He has gone on to join the cloud of witnesses.
    His passing comes to me as a shock. When I heard the news I quickly retreated to my prayer closet. I collapsed into sadness and trevail. His passing has struck me with many emotions. I find myself in great sorrow!
    I know that he is now with the Lord. But I still find myself in much grief. Todays Church has lost a Great Man of God.
    He was a pastor, a prophet. He had compassion for the lowly and the downtrodden.
    He had a message of repentance that touched an untold amount of lives. Can anyone fill his shoes? To be sure! But who is willing to pay the price? Who is willing to count the cost? Who is willing to say, “Yes Lord, here I am!”
    Who understands that the anointing comes with great pain?
    Who can know that the fruits of labor can only come from soil that is softened with tears?
    Who has the desire to lay before a Holy God in trevail to seek His mighty touch?
    Who has the desperation to taste from His living well?
    Who will battle the leaness of soul that plagues so many?
    Who understands that victory never exceeds our prayer life?
    Who has that thirst for a drink? And the giving heart to share that drink?
    Who has the heart beat to point the wandering ones back to the road?
    Who understands that the pulpit is a privilege with the power to heal or to destroy?
    Brother Wilkerson understood these things. He knew how to get a hold of the elements from another dimension! God used him. And now he is gone!
    I believe that Brother Wilkerson’s death is very significant. I believe it to be a marker in the present season of Judgment upon America and the earth.
    He saw the visions. He knew the terror that the world will soon behold.

    The Lord has spared him the pain of what is to come!
    The trumpeter has gone. And now, there shall be great mourning in the streets!

    I believe that his passing is a sign that the judgment is about to enter a new phase!
    Enter into His rest my brother. You have labored well. You have given us an example.
    In Mourning,
    Nathan Leal
