The Parting of a Dear Father to the Body of Christ
Thursday, after a long struggle with sickness, a dear father in the body of Christ, Art Katz, was received into the arms of the Lord. For those of you who don’t know, Art was man of deep conviction and a preacher unlike anyone else in the body of Christ. For those of you who are familiar with IHOP’s “Prophetic History,” Mike refers to Art as a “firey holiness preacher” who actually convinced Mike that Bob Jones was a prophet from God. For this, and for all the countless times that God has used Art’s uncompromising message to cut cancer from our hearts, he will be deeply missed.
I never met Art. I never heard him speak publicly. But everything I’ve ready and all I’ve heard has had an amazing impact on me. You can check out the Ben Israel Website here and read most of his work. I post the following graphic in loving memory of a man given over to the truth.
