Billy Graham Preaching Almost 7 Decades!

Pastor Billy Graham!Please contact us if you have any questions or comments.

Pastor Billy Graham is one of my favorite pastors/preachers of mine. He has led hundreds of thousands of people to Jesus Christ for almost seven decades; he passed away on 2-21-18 and now is with the Lord in heaven after leading countless people to Jesus Christ. I appreciate what Billy Graham once said which is so very true, “Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.” Why do you think that Billy Graham has been pointing people to Jesus Christ for almost seven decades? I am amazed at how he has been given the gift of evangelism and preaching. We have been blessed to have had Billy Graham sharing the gospel with the entire world for all these years! There are many great preachers and teachers of God’s word, but I would have to say that, in my own humble opinion that Billy Graham was one of the greatest. I thank God for how He used Billy Graham all of those past years!  ~ Bill Greguska

 

 

John 3:3  Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

Billy Graham And His Impact On Us!

 

 


 

Shortly Before Billy Graham’s 16th Birthday

Billy Graham Has Preached Over Four Decades!

Billy Graham has been a significant impact on the world for Jesus Christ!

Billy Graham attended a tent revival service in Charlotte, N.C., Where he heard the evangelist Mordecai Ham speak. The following is his account of what happened: I became deeply convicted of my sinfulness and rebellion — and confused.

How could this evangelist be talking to me, of all people? I had been baptized as a baby, learned the Shorter Catechism word perfect, and was confirmed in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church with the pastor’s and elders’ full approval Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church with the full approval of the pastor and elders. I had gotten into mischief once in a while but could hardly be called wicked.

Being a good milker in the dairy barn and never complained about any OTHER work, such as shoveling manure. I was even the vice president of my youth group in our church (although, granted, it wasn’t a particularly vital organization).

I asked why the evangelist would always be pointing his bony finger at me. What was slowly dawning on me during those weeks was the sad realization that I did not know Jesus Christ for myself. Romans 10:9-10, I could not depend on my parent’s faith.

Christian influence in the home could have a lasting impact on a child’s life, but faith could not be passed on as an inheritance, like the family silver. It had to be exercised by each person individually.

 

 


Billy Graham Could Not Depend On His Resolution To Do Better.

I consistently failed in my efforts at self-improvement. Nobody needed to tell me that. As a teenager, I needed to know I was right with God. I could not help but admit that I was purposeless and empty-hearted. Our family Bible reading, praying, psalm-singing, and churchgoing had left me restless and resentful. I had even tried guiltily to think up ways of getting out of all those activities as much as possible. In a word, I was spiritually dead.

No Bells Went Off Inside Me.

No signs were flashing across the tabernacle ceiling for Billy Graham. No physical palpitations made me tremble. I wondered again if I was a hypocrite, not to be weeping or something. I felt at peace. Quiet, not delirious. Happy and peaceful. Parts of this story are excerpted from Billy Graham’s autobiography (Just As I Am).

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right,”

 

 

 

A famous Henry Ford quote, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right,” emphasizes how much attitude determines success or failure. You need to believe that God can and will give you direction if you ask Him.
