Greetings Friends In Christ

Greetings to the family of Pastor David Meyer in the glorious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I think when I learned that Pastor Meyer had been called home to be with the Lord, I was in shock for some time. I have been a reader of the newsletters since the early 2000's, and I also had the privilege to be able to visit Truth Tabernacle a few times in the 2000's. My mother, whom the Lord called home in 2005, had first introduced me to the Last Trumpet Ministries website, and had told me that she had attended a service at Truth Tabernacle. She was also on the church mailing list, and shared the cassettes of Pastor Meyer's sermons with me. When I expressed an interest in attending a service with her, she quickly assembled a small group of her friends, and I picked them up on the appointed Sunday and drove them out the Beaver Dam. We made that journey precious few times over the years, but I looked eagerly forward to the trip every time. I regret that those trips could not have been more frequent, but I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to meet Pastor Meyer, and to hear him preach.

One thing that immediately struck me the first time we visited was how Pastor Meyer became so filled with the Holy Spirit when he preached. I don't know if I have ever seen a man at the pulpit exhibit such Holy Spirit power in his words. It was clear that his words were inspired by God Himself, and the message was so strong that you could feel God's presence in that church. Yet, when Pastor Meyer greeted you at the door on the way out of church (something fewer and fewer pastors do these days), you could not help but be struck by the humility, sincerity, and genuine kindness of this noble man. He was truly an anointed servant of the Lord.

I know how much I miss seeing my own father and mother, so I understand to some extent the pain and emptiness that you all felt at Pastor Meyer's passing. I'm sure that knowing in your hearts that the Lord had a far more important task for him has provided you with some degree of comfort, but you never really get over missing him. It is apparent from the family's In Memoriam recollections that you were (and are) all aware of how very much you were blessed to know him as a husband and father. The good news, as you all know, is that you will be together in Heaven with him some day, and what a glorious day that will be! The day we get to actually meet our Lord, with the promise of eternity in His service, is what we all long for, and to be reunited with our loved ones who have gone before us....well, that's why it's called Heaven.

Samuel, you have been blessed with a gift much like your father's in being able to continue the website. I am as proud of you as your father would have been to see you answer to the Lord's calling on you. Our Lord and Savior wants this important work to continue, and hearing the call and acting on it is a testament to your own faith and trust in Him. He will continue to guide you as to what needs to be said. Never doubt that, or your own ability to keep moving forward. Continue to rely on God's strength when your own falters, and on His word when you find you have none. He will always be there.

My sincerest condolences to you all on the loss of your husband and father. Continue to be strong in your faith, as he would have you do. Seek the Lord in all things and your reward is yet to come, as your beloved David Meyer now knows with certainty. We shall all someday meet again in glory!

May Jesus Richly Bless Each and Every One of You.
