Dave Hunt, founder of The Berean Call, passed away a few months ago. I have been a bit familiar with some of Dave Hunt’s works for a long time and respect him for his faith and faithful teaching of God’s Word.
The following came in their latest email update today, Sunday, August 11th.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of you for your dear cards and letters and prayers. They have meant so very much to me. I hope that you will understand that I am no longer able to respond individually, but please know that every note has been read and is cherished. I am truly blessed to have so many dear friends.
I must now share with you that my doctors have declared me terminally ill and have given me approximately four months to live. I am not in any pain and am being well cared for by family, friends, and caregivers.
I truly look forward to this glorious transition and the fact that I will soon be with my beloved Savior and with Dave and others who have gone on before me. The Lord was so kind to me in answering my prayer, which was that He would allow me to stay well enough to care for my dear David until he went home to be with Him. I was blessed to be there, holding his hand, as he drew his last breath, and I knew that he was with Jesus! How kind of God to have given me that privilege.
I thank each one of you for the many, many years of loving fellowship that we have shared, and I pray that you will be comforted by the fact that I am perfectly at peace. I look forward with much joy to our grand reunion in heaven one day soon! “What a day, glorious day, that will be!”
This is how a believer in Jesus Christ faces death, with promise and hope. This promise and hope of eternal life comes only through having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and then understanding what God’s Word, the Bible, says about death and eternity.
If you are trusting alone in Christ right now, you have this promise of being united with God in heaven. You can face death with peace, hope and joy…like Ruth.
If you’d like to know more about why you desperately need to have a personal relationship with Christ start here.
I think I’ll talk more about Answered Prayers next Monday too. I hope you’ll come back.
