Default Please Share Your Positive Testimonies and Memories of John Ingalls

News has come of the passing of John Ingalls. Funeral/memorial arrangements will be posted as soon as available.

Please Share Your Positive Testimonies and Memories of John Ingalls Here

For any of us who were in the Local Church in the 60s, 70s or 80s here in America, especially Southern California, I'm sure we would have something to share regarding our dear brother John Ingalls.

Let's reserve this thread for POSITIVE and ENCOURAGING testimonies and sharing. (There are plenty of other threads to discuss the various trials and tribulations regarding brother John and the Local Church movement.)

Brother John Ingalls

A precious person that The Lord had made for our enjoyment. "A gift."

Considering this brother I have to say that he has/not had, a yearning to preach Christ Crusified to everyone. He was special. From whenever he found The Lord, he remained faithful to his death being focused on what really matters.

So...I have great respect for this man who after finding God, gave up most of his life pointing others towards our blessed Saviour.

I didn't know John well but I did have the oppertunity to hear him share a few times thus hearing his heart/spirit and being convinced that he was my brother In Christ.

So...yesterday I temporarily lost a brother. I remain encouraged though because I know that Our Father The King doesn't make mistakes and that our dear brother John Ingalls is in His right hand.

Thank you Lord Jesus for all you have freely given! Amen!

Hi all...
Hope everyone is well. I lived in San Diego in the 70s and John was very much loved in San Diego as was Max until.....

From Revelation 21, one of my favorite passages:

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new
.


To be absent from the body is to be PRESENT WITH THE LORD!

That's where he is now! No more divisions, heartaches, sorrows.

LOVE AND PEACE TO ALL UNTIL WE ARRIVE.
Carol

I have had the blessing of participating in our brother's conferences and fellowship a number of times. I can say without a doubt that John was completely Christ centered. The deep wells that issued from our brother satisfied the saints and gave us all an incentive to press forward towards the goal. John is now experiencing a much fuller enjoyment of his Savior and Lord. I feel that I can be bold enough to say with the Lord: Well done good and faithful servant!

While in the local churches and after John left the local churches, I was helped through the messages John gave via audio recordings.

Quite a few years ago, John was visiting the home of J&J in Plano, Texas. It wasn't a time of "ministry" but visiting. In one of our sessions, I reminded John of something he had shared in the "early days" in a conference in Dallas where he and James Barber were sharing. At the time James and John traveled together frequently for conferences and some of the brothers had given them the nickname "sons of thunder!"

In that conference John had said something like: "I will never forsake this way...Christ and the church. Even if Bro. Lee might someday take another path, I will not."

Of course, by the time of this visit, John and WL had indeed parted ways. In John's mind, WL had begun to take another way from the "vision" of Christ and the church. John could no longer abide the corruption taking place there, as outlined in his book "Speaking the Truth in Love", but in John's mind he never abandoned his vision. Clearly, "Christ and the church" were not connected to the man...Witness Lee.

After I reminded him of what he had said in Dallas, this little look came over his face as though he were trying to remember, or reflecting, or something...he was deep in thought for a few seconds. Then he said "I said that?"

We all smiled. I said "Yeah...you did!" Then he smiled, too.

In the light of what had gone on since that Dallas conference, it was clear that John was true to his word. He did exactly what he said he would do.

Thank you Nell for this very insightful sharing regarding our dear brother John Ingalls. I have a somewhat similar story, although my interaction with brother John was more on a personal level. He was very tender and loving towards me in a very confusing time.

If you can talk them into it, please have "J & J" share something regarding this particular visit to their home. Or maybe they can simply share some of their memories/recollections.

John Ingalls was a very gentle soul. His love for the Lord was incredible.

He was one of those people who were just not made for this world, but for another, which he has now joyfully entered.

Thank you, brother John.

My heart is broken having just learned of his passing into the light above. I have known him here and there for the last 20 years. A tremendous gift he was to the saints. The last time we talked was at a WCCC meeting and we walked around the college grounds outside. He was remembering a time from the past and one from the present. He said between the two he had passed through pain and renewal, but here is the secret of joining the two to bring understanding. They are like a coin where both sides are completely different and yet the value has never changed. Both our past and present things we pass through are the things that make us uniquely one in Christ. I will deeply miss you and Bill Freeman, a coin that I had great worth in. tearfully joyful until we meet again.

Brother John Shore, Ephrata, Washington.

Brother John was a gifted teacher and i appreciated his ability to paint a visual picture of biblical truths. For instance, I never forgot a message he gave about the two sons of oil in Zechariah. To this day, I can still envision those pipes pouring out liquid Spirit gold!

He is resting in the Lord.
