Zachery Tims Funeral, A Special Day For Deliverance

Today, thousands of people are paying their last respect to Dr. Zachery Tims.  He was a loving, kind and considerate man of God, but allegedly and according to his past testimony, he had a drug addiction and people seem to want to not give him the credit he deserves because of it.   It does not matter what was discovered on this man of God's body.  He was honest while he was alive.  He never lied about his past and was always out to win souls for the Kingdom, this is not something we can say about a lot of pastors who stand up and preach out of God's Word.  Indeed, Zachery Tims will always be respected for not being shy and ashamed about his past to testify.   Testimonies is something that has faded out of most churches, but Zachery Tims continued to testify about his deliverance and this is why most people can look over how he was discovered in his hotel room.   Praise God, finally we can remember someone who testified about God's goodness and His grace, instead of standing behind the pulpit and pointing out other people's flaws while embarrassing and humiliating them, something that has occurred in the black church for many years, which has caused many souls to avoid church.

This is the danger of the modern day church, they do not believe in alter calls, especially at someone's funerals.   However, it would be a wonderful time for whoever is officiating the funeral to call souls up to the alter for repentance, because it is what God would desire.

Zachery Tims was more than a conqueror and he taught people how to be same through Jesus Christ.  We would not say his ministry was about prosperity, but also about deliverance, because if it wasn't, he wouldn't have testified about his drug addiction.   So, Pastor Tims wanted others to be free although, he may have been having difficulty in his own life, possibly he cared about people more than himself.   He probably spent more time considering the lives of others, instead of trying to seek help for his own circumstance.  However, he fought til the end.   Possibly, God said, no more struggle for you my son, you are tired at such a young age; we do not know what God said, but we know God was there in that hotel room.  God also knows how the packet of drugs got in his pocket.  Possibly, he was about to use it and God stopped him before he could go further in his prolonged addiction since 19 years old.   Just think about it for a moment, when we ask God to guide our footsteps and to protect us, possibly Dr. Tims was protected by God to no longer sniff anymore drugs that would have damaged His temple.  The Bible says this very fact,(I Cor. 6:19)  "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"

No one could love Pastor Zachery Tims more than Jesus Christ.   Think about it, Jesus was there when he died, although person was was there. God is always with his children.   

Hopefully, many souls who are not saved will come to Christ today at his home-going and we pray that they completely get delivered and set free from all kinds of things: drugs, alcohol, homosexuality, fornication, adultery, backbiting, idolatry and anything that is not like God.   May the memory of Pastor Zachery Tims life caused many people to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ and never turn back.  Praise God.
