R.I.P “Pastor Zach”Tims

The shocking news that megachurch pastor, Zachery Tims, died at the age of 42-years-old has left many saddened and stunned; but none more so than members of his New Destiny Christian Center congregation.  Charisma Online was one of the first outlets to break the story and had reported they received confirmation from New York authorities that someone by the name “Zachery Tims” was found deceased in the W Hotel located at Times Square.  My Fox Orlando reported that church members began gathering at the Apoka, Florida church to grieve.  Other members are leaving their condolences on Tims’ official Facebook page

I, like many people are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Pastor Zachery Tims. Pastor Tims was senior pastor of approximately 7500 member New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, FL. My condolences go out to the Tims family and to the NDCC church family.Most people in the Christian Community recall the scandal that rocked NDCC and the Tims Family just a few years ago. Some people stood by Zachary Tims and some could not. I am not here to judge either party. I believe that most people on this planet are doing the best they can every day of their lives. Whether people decided to stay or to leave is a decision made between themselves and God.

What I believe is important now is that I hope Pastor Tims  is in Heaven. I hope that he truly rebuilt his relationship with Christ and that he is speaking with Jesus even now. As human beings—as Christians, we all have the opportunity to mess up and some of us go so far that it looks like we will never make it back. We all know the story of David who went so far that it seemed there was no turning back to God for him. But even after his missteps God welcomed him back. God had a plan for his life before he sinned. ‘And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will.’ Acts 13:22.After David sinned he repented in earnest, asking God for forgiveness. Read the beautiful Psalm 51. A beautiful Psalm especially to those of us have sinned and truly prayed for and received forgiveness.The most important thing that we as Christians can do besides spreading the good word of God is to be ready when it is our time.

  5. I thought that when you commit suicide you don’t go to heaven.What’s done in the dark allways comes to light!!! I hate it also , but the truth set us free. Did Judas go to heaven? You can only go by what the Bible says. JIm Jones had many people come to Christ. Did he go to heaven? I don’t believe so. You Must walk, talk, and live the walk. God see us all!!! The question is how many of his flock will leave the church because of his actions? Don’t hate the messenger! P.S. If he was murdered he IS in heaven.
