Ravi Zacharias Dies Of Cancer At 74 by gaiusolayinka(m): 2:18pm On May 19, 2020
Ravi Zacharias, the prominent Christian apologetics author and speaker, died Tuesday at the age of 74 following a battle with a rare form of cancer.

Zacharias’ daughter, Sarah Davis, posted a message on the website of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries on Tuesday, titled “Ravi Zacharias, Now With Jesus,” confirming that the apologist had passed away.

“It was his Savior, Jesus Christ, that my dad always wanted most to talk about. Even in his final days, until he lacked the energy and breath to speak, he turned every conversation to Jesus and what the Lord had done,” she wrote.

To Live is Christ to Die is Gain...

As long as Papa Died in JESUS He is in the Best place of Life...

GLORY! Glory! Glory!


Leaving this Earth with JESUS is an Experience that is Undescribable! It's Superfluous! It's Fabulously Fabulous! It's Joyously Joyfulness! O My GOD! Nothing can be Compared to it!

In the past few weeks 2 people who I know closely left the Earth.

One was a Brother in the LORD.. Sold out to GOD. A GENUIE Believer. When I was told of his death, I Screamed.. but I wasn't so pained because I know where he is. Few days later I was told that right in the hospital bed just before he died. His wife came to Change his Cloths and put new clothes on him. He told the wife not to worry about Changing his Cloths. In his Words

"Don't Change me, The angels are here already! Can't you see them"

O my GOD ! What a Glorious way to depart

He saw the host of Heaven who had come to usher him To Heaven and he didn't want his wife to do anything that will keep here on Earth! O My GOD! That is how I Pray to Get out from This Earth.


The Second guy just passed away few days ago! A bubbling young man who had the World at his feet! A young Military officer doing Very well!

I can't say about him Cos I don't know if he was saved or not Before he died! We grew up together as kids in the barracks and we went to the same church as youths with our parents! All I could say when I heard of his death was A Glorious future has been cut short!


What am I saying?
Having JESUS Is the Greatest Gift you can give your Soul

Sudden Death......Sudden Glory

A person who supports a particular belief or political system, and speaks or writes in defence of it.

So brother Ravi gave his life to speaking and writing in defence of the Christian Faith, as this verse of scripture,
"but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect," 1 Peter 3:15

"If Truth doesn't exist then it would be True that truth doesn't exist, and once again we arrive at Truth. There's no alternative; Truth must exist".

When God wants to drill a man,
And thrill a man,
And skill a man
When God wants to mold a man
To play the noblest part;

When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great and bold a man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!


How He ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him


Into trial shapes of clay which
Only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!


How He bends but never breaks
When his good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses,
And which every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendor out-
God knows what He’s about.

I don't suppose that Dr Ravi wrote this poem but as far as I know he won't preach without at least alluding to it. For me it has become like a creed...A code with which I have lived by for over 11 years now. Needless to point out how refreshing those words always feel whenever I say them out loud in my darkest moments.

During my undergrad days, whenever I have a depressing bout I'd just lay on my bed and then put on Dr Ravi's podcast on my phone, as his soothing voice dissects God's word of hope and truth. 1000/1000 I wake up refreshed and happy to face the new day and its challenges.

The World has lost an end time General, a Quintessential Apologist, a most logical mind and a great great man of God. Aside the death of my father, I don't think the demise of anyone else has gotten to me half as much as this.
Rest in perfect Dr. Ravi Zacharias. May God grant Mag and your kids the fortitude to bear this monumental loss. Amen!

Saints don't die.

I am almost in tears. However like Paul said in Phillipians 1:21 " To live is Christ, to die is gain". Ravi lived for Christ defending the gospel to anyone and everyone. Through Him, a lot of people came to know who Jesus was.

I remember his Sermon " The Problem with Pleasure". That was a masterpiece. His quote "Even Heaven will be hell for anybody that does not want to be with Jesus" is one I constantly use to explain why unbelievers won't make heaven.

Rest on "Great Soldier" in the bosom of your master. By God's grace we will meet each other in eternity and we will laugh, cry and worship at the feet of our Master.
