Woodlawns Cementary

Woodlawn Memorial Park Cementary

The Memorial Day, Day of the dead, also known as Dia de los Muertos in Spanish these holidays have been celebrated in several countries for the longest, but should Christians join these festivities? No

Pastor Riva Tims announces every year  a celebration for the deceased? Zachary Tims’ birthday. Since his death in 20011 Riva has kept consistent on it.  She sent invitations to a birthday celebration at the graveyard, “The Children of Dr. Zachery Tims will be remembering their father on his birthday with a special memorial gathering.” It will be a brief program but you are welcome to join them at Woodlawn Memorial Park, 400 Woodlawn Cemetery Road, Orlando (Gotha) FL 34734 at 6:30pm.” I do think this is awkward, and I do not agree. Zachery Tim pastor New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka was found dead in Ny hotel from a reported  drug overdose. He got into something deep and you can’t put him in heaven.


Zachary Tims is gone. Riva Tims motive is money,  and although there is not much mourning from her,  perhaps there is any mourning from his children Matthew 5:4 KJV Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Most certainly  Tims children will remember their father, after all he lived before although he is now deceased. There might be times wherein you may remember someone who lived, even briefly if it is just that they were an example or had a situation of what not to do,  so once you thought about it, you knew to do the opposite.  Maybe if you knew someone who displayed good examples walked up right, and it helped you.  Although some people may not do what God has purposed for them to do, understand people do not exist just exist. God has a will for our lives.   God wants us all to do his will, but he has given us choice.  Some of our love ones have done the opposite of what God wanted, and it hurts to know they did not follow through. Others may have did what the Lord call them to do and it is joy to know that.

Remembering there are things we have been taught

2 Thessalonians 2:15 KJV telling us to hold fast.”Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.”   That scripture is important because it is not we are doing things for tradition in the way that men thinks, we are not religious have a relationship with Christ. When we are holding to the traditions that have been taught we are going according  to the scripture  an our relationship with the Lord  we desire to do truth,  follow truth and when we had the example of people who loved the Lord regardless to whether or not they still living or not,  we want to follow  God the same way with the strong passion and heart for him. Following my Lord Savior Jesus Christ is not hard when we are called to be his disciples and disciplined in the word. We are to crucify the flesh, most of the temptation is brought from other tainting and people want to follow at large.

 We recall the Bible often saying to remember someone, or something generally speaking

Think about  how the old testament is related to the new testament is related to the old. Genesis to Revelation.  God’s word is fully relevant remembering when they in the new testament, and even us now hear about Noah  who lived in the old testament it stirs our hearts and gives unction to go in the right direction of  The True and Living God and not waver in the faith. Hebrews 11:7 states   By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Revelations 14:13 KJV Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. So essentially at times we recall things to remind of us what to do and what not to do such as Luke 17:32 KJV says Remember Lot’s wife. And someone may say why? Because Lot’s wife did not do what she what she was supposed, and I believe it let us know not to turn back,  but to keep our eyes on the Lord. It is many things and often too many things people get involved in.     As for the annual Zachery Tims celebrations, these types of activities of inviting people of the town to birthday celebrations of Zachary Tims  could set the kids and others up for other thing of hindrance and detriment to their spirits by introducing  necromancy, consultation and familiar spirits which are forbid  in Deuteronomy 18:11 KJV.


Skull shirts, pants, and skull hats are popular now. They emphasize death.  Generally death has become  celebrated at a large for the deceased. Michael Jackson, Houstons materials are more popular now than when they were alive. When the skull is featured on the shirt, there is often the face of a deceased person embedded upon shirts,  so whomever the wearer comes in contact with  will the see the face of the decease going through a gate. Now if they were saved, that is bit much we have to think about what we are doing.  These embedded shirt are printed from local fallen gang members wearing the shirts, to celebrities, to even churches,  and if you think about  it they all go out to do that after the person is already gone , but there  are spirits attached to it and that so it is not of the Lord and I do not believe he wants us to engage in such forms of activities.

Luke 9:60 KJV Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

The Tims Jr Enrichment Center is open,  so his annual celebration was held there on April 18th.


Riva Tims is the ex wife Zachery Tims who was running smaller  ministry in different location and name at the time, and she expressed in a video and there was a struggle financially to make it.

She was stating she did not want to be famous, but that is quite visibly the contrary, for  she has since flourished in expansion of church, warehouse, and has since mobilized on  that very market since  the death of ex husband and there has been extreme tactics used for it. This Sunday April 27th Riva Tim advertises  “We will be paying your mortgage/rent, car note, credit card” on Sunday. deception.
