Armin Gesswein Home With The Lord

   On March 10, the Lord took Brother Armin Gesswein, age 93, home to Himself. Brother Gesswein was a highly respected and dearly beloved brother in the Lord to many. In his lifetime he ministered (in his own words) "in many lands, especially in Norway--preaching in all kinds of churches, evangelistic crusades and conferences--as a seminary professor--founding and directing the Revival Prayer Fellowship and Ministers Prayer Fellowship." In the midst of a busy schedule of ministry, he suffered a stroke and a few days later he was taken to be with the Lord.

    From earliest years of service to the Lord, Brother Gesswein felt called to a revival ministry. Along with that he had a vital ministry of preaching, teaching and practicing prayer. It is said that thousands are laboring today in the prayer movement directly or indirectly because of this brother.

    In addition to several books Brother Gesswein has written, a number of his messages have been circulated through the pages of various publications, in brochures and tracts, etc. Herald of His Coming has been among those privileged to print his messages from time to time. Since 1997 Brother Gesswein has kindly served on the Advisory Board of Herald of His Coming. In tribute to our esteemed brother, we are printing on this page several excerpts from his messages.
