Many will remember David Wilkerson as a prophet. Now, the Lord is speaking prophetically with regard to the abrupt ending of his life—and the fruit it will bring to the kingdom of God.
“After hearing of David Wilkerson’s tragic death, I, like many, was deeply saddened,” says Cindy Jacobs, founder of Generals International. “However, as I prayed I distinctly heard these words from the Lord, ‘This seed that has been planted will result in a new generation of revivalists!’”
Jacobs’ prophetic word is scriptural. Jesus Himself said unless a kernel of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, Jesus said, it produces many seeds.
Wilkerson was killed suddenly in a head-on collision last Wednesday, but his legacy lives on through the many works he started. Now that he has gone home to be with the Lord, those whose lives he impacted have the opportunity to put their hand to the evangelistic plow he built and push it forward.
“God’s foot is on the accelerator pedal of revival,” Jacobs says. “A new anointing for evangelism is being poured out even now. The fields are white with harvest.”
