September 1, 2020
I will say I am thankfully God was able to use him.He knew The Word and even though nobody can perfectly know truth until the rapture happens,Jack Van Impe loved Jesus Christ enough to not back down about world events and why we must have a savior in Christ Jesus.As I learned The Word more,I was able to understand much of what this man said being true.
He understood the Blood Of The Lamb.I am thankfully he was in ministry.I pray he has heard well done good and faithful servant.I have no sadness for him knowing he is happier now than ever.
Peace be with you In Jesus Christ.

I believe it must have been the early 1960’s when
Jack & Rexella Van Impe came to our church in Detroit. Mich. Springwells Baptist Church. Pastor was Rev. Frank Mills. Jack preached ,played the accordion & Rexella sang I have enjoyed his teaching these many years. What a memory the Lord gave to Jack Van Impe to quote so many Bible verses from memory Rexella made up the perfect team. May the Lord bless & keep you Rexella & love from this old 97 year old lady..

I send my deepest condolences to his wife. I have so many tablets filled with biblical information that I learned from him. He truly was the best teacher. I was able to gain a wealth of knowledge. I would often watch and rewind the program to make sure I had written every word correctly. As a result, I was able to get a good understanding. Dr. Jack Van Impe will be missed.
August 4, 2020
I was also a ( Jack Van Impe Ministries )Sunday night viewer and (radio fan) I thank Jesus for a wonderful vessel in ( JVI) for broadcasting such informative scripture and promise in Gods word. Rest in peace JVI. You are home now.( My sincerest condolences to Rexella and family.

I was saddened for Rexella and the entire Jack Van Impe crew when I heard about Dr. Jack Van Impe’s passing. I know thAt he must be one of the most Happiest and Jubilant people walking on the street of gold right now. I had listened to his broadcast for 20+ years. His intelligence on Bible scripture memory goes unmatched. I would get excited when he would preach about the rapture. I look forward to seeing him in Heaven one day and to tell him how much I appreciated his ministry here on Earth. Jack Van Impe Ministries encouraged, and continues to encourage, millions of people to come to faith in Christ.

I'm so sad to hear this. I'm just hearing about this tonight, all because I'm searching for info Jack talked about in a segment of his show in the 90s. He passed recently, only 3 days after my birthday. He sure did make Revelation a real book to me in a way that few others accept David Breese could. Thank you Jack, my mom and I purchased The Mark of the Beast and I never missed your shows as a new Christian in the 90s. May God watch over Rexella. RIP.

RIP Rev. Jack Van Impe ✝
I am saddened by your passing that I learned of today. I love your preaching style and I discovered you in mid 1990s and enjoyed listening to you on tv during hard times. Your preaching uplifted me when I needed hope, love, joy, and good things that come from Father ABBA and his Son our Savior Jesus Christ. And we all must remember the Holy Spirit, who is to be Worshiped and Glorified. Plus you were the vessel God through Christ used to bring the good news to a fallen wicked sinful world as shown in
Romans 1 : Chapter 18
Verse 32. This Book of Romans is spot on about the evil world conditions through the ages. The remedy is repentance, forgiveness and forgiving those who attack you, and look up and following God/ABBA through Jesus Christ in LOVE. Thank you for your Preaching and the Holy Bible is the only true word of the living God and testifies about our Lord and Savior Yeshua Jesus Christ. My condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Van Impe for your loss.

Jack Van Impe was a voice of one calling out in the desert, as John the Baptist to me. Jack opened my eyes to the word of God and showed me that to get the facts of what was going on in the world, one needed to branch out and seek. Jack is with Jesus now, and my prayers and sympathy are for Rexella. I know how difficult it is to be without your partner. But one day we shall all be together with Jesus. God bless Rexella and comfort her. Thank you for your ministry all these years. Your reward is in heaven.

I never heard that dear Dr. Van Impe had gone to be with his Lord! He was a good and faithful servant of God. God gave him the drive and the mind to memorize and use the Bible to preach repentance to millions of people worldwide. My parents both listened to him preach and loved "the walking Bible." They have gone to Heaven, but I have the Jack Van Impe Ministries New Testament and the book Roger F. Campbell wrote about Dr. Van Impe: "They Call Him the Walking Bible" that I am glad my parents left me for my library.

Enjoyed watching the Van Impes every Sunday- brother Impe with his fervor and spark and sweet beautiful Rexella a couple who worked their entire lives teaching the world about Jesus. Rexella you still have a lot of Jesus love to teach the world and hope that you will continue your tv ministry again. The world needs to hear true news and end time current events like never b4

My husband Gary and I looked forward to Sunday nights to watch Drs. Jack and Rexella, our weekly family tradition we loved. Our Sundays won't be the same without them together. Such apparent love, honor and respect between them, besides the insightful commentary on current and future events in light of God's word.
Dear Dr. Jack Van impe, 'thank you' are insufficient words. Your devotion to God's living word was so evident & impressive. Your spirit & fervor remained strong in the Lord, despite some physical challenges you faced, especially in your latter years.
Dear Dr. Rexella Van Impe, although you celebrate your precious husband's arrival into heaven, I'm sure the loss you feel is great. May God comfort your beautiful heart. ♥

I enjoyed watching your show and thought the Holiday episodes where Chuck would play the trumpet and Rexella would sing where fantastic! Your voice to the world about the second coming of Jesus will be missed, though, we be waiting for his return and appreciate you telling the world the good news. We will miss you Jack!
May 31, 2020
I have watched Jack & his wife for 10 or 12 years. He was full of fire & did not deter from The Word. I will miss him greatly . But knowing he's with Jesus does make it a little easier. God bless Rexella & send her Grace.

Jack, Im going to miss seeing you and Rexella together. Im also going to miss your enthusiasm, your dedication, your obedience to the Word and your gifted biblical wisdom.

I was working in Oklahoma on a project for my company. The talk of the morning was always "Did you see Jack last night"?
After a while I asked --who is Jack?
One of the workers told me and invited me to her home to watch it with a group of friends. I went and watched and enjoyed it
Being an Irish Catholic from Boston I was very intrigued . It became an event that I looked forward to.
Well, that was 1993 and when I returned to Boston I found Jack on a Boston station and watched. Since I traveled a lot, I set it up to be taped.
Here it is 2020 and I was still a faithful watcher.
I must have over 500 of his programs and still watch them. I always learn something new.

Jack, I said a prayer for you this morning and I know that you are sitting next to GOD

Dr. Jack, my most gracious and beloved brother. I had never braved the chance to tell you while you were her, how much you have been helping, and mean to me... Now, you see.
P.S. I am very sorry and sad that I didnt respond sooner as I do not do news regularly and sometimes drift away (you know what mean) but you always bring me back to him, which is why you will forever be embedded in my heart and especially my salvation. Thanx Big Bro.

Dr. Rev. Jack Van Impe impressed me since I was a young man growing up and I always wanted to be able to preach quoting verses from Scripture like he did. He impressed me not only memorize the verse but the address of where it was found. We will miss his great preaching, fervent belief in the soon coming of Christ. - Paul Martindale

I first met Jack when he and Rexella visited the Full Gospel Christian Church of Copiague Long Island. It was back in the 1980's. I remember our Pastor, Ross Davie introducing him as , "The Walking Bible", and I soon learned what he meant by that.
Rexella, please know that Jack will be greatly missed and his work will go on into eternity. Thank you for always being his faithful wife.

We watched your program for at least 20 years and were beyond blessed at the teaching and continual future information that we received. I also loved the many tapes i listened to that you put togather during that time. I just learned today of his passing and although very sad i know that he has just relocated to the place he wanted to be. When my mother an avid viewer of your program passed recently i tell people she has relocated and is so much happier now. Again i am sorry for your loss and someday i want to be able to tell Jack personally how much he meant to our family. God bless you always.Jill Dufore ps i did get to go to one of Jacks services when i was in my teens with my aunt when he came to south florida. never forgot it!

Mr. Jack Van Impe, I am just finding out of your passing as I was looking for you online, wanting to know your take on this Coronavirus. Little did I know you were gone! Oh my dear brother in Christ please allow me to say THANK YOU for all of what you did during your time here on this earth. You changed my life and taught me so much during times when I could find answers no where else. You would give off those scriptures like nobodys business and I would be there writing them all down. I would then spend the week in scripture seeking and learning of what you had said. I could go on and on, and my God Roxella, only Jesus knows how you must feel. I know you have a blessed hope however! As Jack would say COME QUICK LORD JESUS! Lord I pray I be ready and only half the woman that this man was.

As a sister in Christ, my brother Jack Van Impe was a great inspiration in my walk with our Lord Jesus Christ. I believed like Jack Van Impe that the truths of the bible were for all of us that believed in Jesus Christ as the Only son of God. I am saddened by his passing away and leaving his lovely wife Rexella, but I know that its only a goodbye because I will see him again. Now he is enjoying being with God and praising his Savior.

I've been a fan of your show since the late 1980s. You taught about religious subjects that the churches ignored. You reported on national and world news events that others ignored too. You will be missed. There will never be another person like you and your devotion to the faith. RIP

Jack never knew me, but I, like many others, knew him well--like "family." He was,"the very REAL deal." He was an inspiration and a true Christian role model to me. What a Day in Heaven that must have been when the Angels escorted Jack to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I look forward to one day soon joining him there. I will, like all the rest of my JVI Brothers and Sisters, then get to finally meet him face to face and share eternity there with our Savior.
Keep up the good work Rexella...you can count on my uninterrupted financial ministerial support. God bless and comfort you with the peace that surpasses all understanding. ~Rob Nestor
