“IT ALWAYS HAPPENS TO DAVID!”
SOME PERSONAL MEMORIES OF DAVID PAWSON
Ever since his childhood, David Pawson had a tendency to fall on his feet. His family always quipped. “O it always happens to David!” On his own admission, his life was full of unusual and unexpected events, most of which he did not seek. Not only was this an observable fact in his life, it continued on to include his death!
If, as a Christian, you had a choice of when to pass into the presence of the Lord, you might well opt for Ascension Day! If you had a choice as to the time of day, you would probably opt for the time your Saviour was crucified or even the time the Holy Spirit fell onto and into the disciples at the Feast of Pentecost. That is to say, 9 o’clock in the morning. It happens to be the precise moment when the Morning Sacrifices were kindled in the Temple at Jerusalem. JDP passed into the presence of his Saviour at 9 o’clock in the morning on May 21st, 2020 … Ascension Day! No doubt he chuckled to himself, as he entered Paradise, “Trust me! It’s happened yet again!”
