A friend and I went to one of his crusades one time many years ago. I remember he was a powerful and highly sincere man who spoke forcefully and invited many to come forward for salvation in Christ. I don't agree with all of his theology but I remember how strong he was. He spoke with authority. Like Billy Graham, they may have to build a special set of large bleachers in heaven to seat all the people he preached to and who were saved. There is a bunch.
I believe Jack was a very wise man, and knew the word of God very well. I think he claimed to be a prophet, maybe he was. I don't think he believed in the "once saved always saved", but regardless, I truly believe he loved the Lord, and was a Blessing to many people in life. I do believe he will get a, well done my good and faithful servant at the gates.
