The Beautiful Creation of God: A Psalm by Quinn Graham

We have a modern-day psalmist on our hands:  Quinn Graham, Will Graham’s son and Billy Graham’s great-grandson, has written a special  psalm to share. This one, entitled “The Beautiful Creation of God” is a great reminder for us to cherish God’s beautiful creation and the seasons that He gives to us.

The Beautiful Creation of God

God made a beautiful creation

There’s no denying it

He made a beautiful world filled with intelligence

There’s nothing in the whole universe like earth

Notice how the trees store up food and water for the winter

Notice how the leaves change color in autumn

Watch as the flowers bloom, absorbing the sunlight

Watch as the wind carries the seeds of plants to new places

Watch the fruit growing on the trees and ripening over time

Watch the weather change from sunshine to thunder

Watch the climate change throughout the seasons

See how He made animals for certain parts of the world

See how the animals survive in the dessert or the snow

God made everything just as it should be

He made everything unique

He made a perfectly beautiful world

An Easter Message from Will Graham

The Agony of Betrayal: An Easter Message by Will Graham

As we consider Christ’s death and resurrection – His perfect sacrifice and His victory over sin and the grave – we naturally focus on the unbearable physical pain Jesus endured on our behalf. However, this Easter I want you to consider a different kind of suffering: the emotional pain Jesus experienced as those who were closest to Him turned their backs.

Jesus personally chose 12 disciples whom He poured himself into. They were His best friends; His “inner circle.” They surrounded Him, traveled with Him, learned from Him, and served in His ministry.

Jesus loved them, and yet He knew – long before they did, in fact – that a couple of these men would publicly betray Him.

Judas, of course, is the one that comes instantly to mind. We’re told in Luke 22 that “Satan entered into Judas…” (ESV).  John 13:2 says “the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him” (ESV). Judas went to the chief priests and officers, accepted a payment from them and then betrayed Jesus into their hands.

Judas’ treachery was the ultimate betrayal, directly resulting in a Jesus’ trial and the agony of the cross. But I wonder if the second betrayal might not have hurt just as much as the first.

Along with James and John, Peter was one of Jesus’ closest and dearest friends. When Jesus was being arrested in the garden, Peter violently defended him by attacking the high priest’s servant. (While this earned Peter a rebuke from Jesus, it also showed that he was no coward and he was willing to defend Christ to the death).

Given this, Peter’s denial of Jesus must have stung deeply. Literally at the same moment that Jesus was being beaten and ridiculed (Mark 14:65), Peter was busy distancing himself from Christ (Mark 14:66-72). Three times people approached Peter to ask him if he was associated with Jesus, and three times Peter denied Him, even going so far as to “…invoke a curse on himself and to swear, ‘I do not know this man of whom you speak.’” (Mark 14:71, ESV).

At a time when Jesus was being accused and beaten, His friends turned their backs on Him. What emotional pain this must have caused, even as Jesus knew it was coming and understood that it had to be!

Maybe you’re reading this and it sounds a little too familiar. Maybe you have friends or family members who have turned their backs on you, or perhaps – like Judas – they were instrumental in causing the suffering you are now enduring. Maybe you’re struggling through pain and despair, and the people you thought you could depend on have disappeared. Bodily pain hurts physically, but emotional pain slices directly to your soul.

My friends, I’m here to tell you that people will let you down. People will turn their backs on you and cause you pain. But here’s the key – Jesus was forsaken, betrayed and crucified, but He conquered all of that! People are imperfect, but Christ is risen and will not let you down!

The Bible tells us not to put our faith into men or princes. Instead, this Easter place your eternity in the One Who endured scorn, pain, and – yes – betrayal from His friends, so that you may have a hope that extends far beyond the pitfalls and pains of this world.

Saturday Snapshot: A Look Around The Cove

If you have never visited The Cove, we would love to invite you to come this year. Founded by Billy and Ruth Graham, this 1200 acre property  is one of the most beautiful places to visit in North Carolina.

As soon as you drive through the entrance, you will feel the peace and the presence of the Lord.  Billy and Ruth Graham prayed over this property for years and the staff continue to pray before guests arrive.

This photo was taken behind one of our Inn’s on property. A place to relax and to focus on God’s Word. It is also a great place to have conversation with friends.

A photo of the outside of the Training Center at night. The Training Center has a 458 seat auditorium, meeting spaces, Ruth’s Attic Bookstore, and more.  The outside area is a favorite among guests. It is very peaceful and quiet.  The rocking chairs provide the perfect place to take in the mountain views.

We have many trails for hiking or just peaceful walks. One specific trail is approximately 3 miles long and leads to the top of the mountain behind The Cove. It has a panoramic view of the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Dining Room provides chef-prepared meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You will want to come hungry.

“There are two gorgeous chapels in eastern America. One is at Duke University and the other is here at The Cove.” —Billy Graham

The Chatlos Chapel and Visitors Center is open Monday-Friday for guests to visit and the cost is free. A wonderful place to also view the history of Billy Graham and the ministries of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

A Special Thanksgiving Message from Will Graham

Dear Friends,

“For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” – Psalm 107:9, NKJV

The world is filled with hungry souls, people who are searching for satisfaction yet finding only emptiness. As we enter this 2018 Thanksgiving season, I want to take a moment to thank you for partnering with us in sharing the true hope that fills longing souls with the goodness of the Savior.

We have seen incredible things take place this year as God has drawn hundreds of thousands to Himself.  It’s also been an emotional year – one in which we had to say goodbye (for a time) to my grandfather, Billy Graham. He would have turned 100 on November 7.

Through it all – through every tear and triumph – the Gospel was proclaimed to the ends of the earth.

The beautiful thing, of course, is that you can’t talk about Billy Graham without sharing his message – the unchanging message that he carried over the course of eight decades of faithful ministry. The news media (not to mention social media) shared the hope of the cross as my grandfather was memorialized from the United States to Australia, from China to Saudi Arabia, and the Holy Spirit was at work calling broken hearts to repentance and salvation.

Friends like you have been with us every step of the way, sharing in the burden through your prayers and support, and sharing in the harvest as God moved in extraordinary ways to soften the hearts of those who are desperate for the hope that can only be found in a relationship with Jesus.

For this, I just want to say thank you.

Thank you for your love for me and my family as we mourned and celebrated my grandfather’s homegoing. And thank you for your continued faithful support as co-laborers in Christ, allowing us the opportunity to continue sharing His hope with people around the world.

Beginning in April, I conducted three Celebrations (which is what I call my Crusade outreaches) on three continents in three months. I preached in the Tri-Cities region of Tennessee, then traveled to Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Australia, in May, to share the Good News in the Outback. I followed that with a series of evangelistic meetings in the historic city of Falkirk, Scotland.

A few weeks ago, I was in Canada for back-to-back weekends in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut (a remote community near the Arctic Circle), and then in St. John’s, Newfoundland. I’ll finish my year with events in two cities in Thailand in early December.

Meanwhile, my father, Franklin Graham, has been boldly sharing the Gospel near and far, taking a faithful stand for Christ in the United States and abroad. More than 120,000 heard the Gospel during the Decision America California Tour and the Decision American Pacific Northwest (Washington and Oregon) Tour. My dad also shared the hope and love of Christ during multi-day Festivals in Lisbon, Portugal; Lancashire, England; and Monterrey, Mexico.

Through it all, God has drawn many broken hearts to respond and begin a relationship with Jesus.

I’m often asked if I’ve ever seen a miracle, and I respond that I’m blessed to see them regularly. Every time I see weary wanderers fall to their knees with tears streaming down their faces, crying out to Jesus for forgiveness and the hope of eternity, I see that which was once dead made alive again in Christ Jesus (see Ephesians 2:5). We thank God for His faithfulness in providing the harvest as we serve Him as sowers of the seed.

As God opens doors for 2019, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association already has evangelistic events scheduled in 28 cities on five continents next year, with more in the works. I have accepted invitations to lead evangelistic celebrations in nine of those cities–in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

My friends, I share all of these things because they are possible as a result of your involvement.  Eternities are changed because you feel led by God to come alongside us in this ministry, and – as we celebrate Thanksgiving and begin turning our eyes to the Christmas season – I sincerely want you to know how thankful I am for each of you, your prayers, and your generosity.

Thank you for helping my father, me, and all of BGEA proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. Take joy in the fact that God is using you to reach souls for His glory!

Blessings,

Will Graham

KENDRA GRAHAM- UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION

 “I AM the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage.  I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.  Then I will take you for My people, and I will be your God; and you shall know that I AM the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.”

(Exodus 6:6-7, NASB)

What Does it Say?

I AM the LORD and WILL bring YOU out from burdens of Egyptians. I WILL deliver YOU from bondage, I WILL redeem YOU with outstretched arm. I WILL take YOU for MY people.  I WILL be YOUR God. YOU shall KNOW I AM, who brought YOU out.”

What Does it Mean?

There is a powerful message of freedom in the new movie, “Unbroken: Path to Redemption.”  The main character in the film, Olympic champion and World War II hero Louis Zamperini is a man burdened by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of his wartime experiences. After Louie’s plane crashed, he survived 47 days at sea on a raft in the South Pacific—only to be captured by the Japanese and specifically targeted and tortured by Mutsuhiro Watanabe, known to prisoners as “The Bird.”


(Picture of Louis and “The Bird”)

Louis was plagued by nightmares which kept him in bondage and drove him to alcohol, enabling him to forget his misery, if only for a few hours.  On this dark and dangerous path of destruction, Louis’ marriage was being destroyed and his relationship with his daughter threatened. His very life was destined to come to an abrupt end if Louis continued in the direction he was headed.

In a key scene (without giving the entire movie away), Louis finds himself at a point requiring him to choose who he will bend his knee to. The image of “The Bird” is mocking him, telling him, “You will NEVER be free from me!”  “The Bird” is saying in not so many words, “BEND YOUR KNEE TO ME!”  Louis walks towards him, drawn to destruction…. drawn to bend his knee forever to the very thing that will kill him. But…there is hope. Behind Louis’ right shoulder there’s another image—a different choice: a preacher, with an outstretched arm, preaching the Word of God. It’s a choice that offers FREEDOM from all that has burdened him. In this moment of great struggle, Louis does bend his knee.  (You’ll have to watch the movie to see to whom.)

Here is where the choice lies, for each one of us.  We will bend our knee to the slavery Egypt offers or to the freedom the living God offers. The misery of bondage beckons us, reminding us that we’re broken—useless and left alone by a God who has forgotten us and cannot hear our cries. The TRUTH of God’s Word reminds us that we are loved—that we were created on purpose, with purpose. There is a battle raging over your very soul. Your choice matters. Your knee will bend, but to whom is what lies in the balance.

The truth is that God, with His outstretched arm, has broken the chains of bondage that have kept us enslaved to the world and all its misery. Here in Exodus, God declares what He is going to do for His people; then the story continues and HE finishes it.  I love what Pharaoh’s magicians say about what is happening in Exodus 9, “It is the finger of God.”  Forget all the power of God’s outstretched arm to save His people: God is doing it with just a finger (I bet it was the pinky finger)!

God saved His people. But, why?  Did He save them just to put a feather in His cap?  Just to impress the superpower of the day?  It was more than just saving… God saved His people so that they could knowI AM,” personally.

God created us to know Him.  He led His people into the wilderness not to torture them, but to teach them. God saved them from horrific misery and bondage; but it was more than that, and God continues to be more than that today.

Through Jesus Christ, God came personally in the form of man.  He came for one reason: to free us from the bondage and misery the world has to offer.  Jesus, by the power of His out-stretched arms on the cross, conquered the power sin has over our lives. Three days later, He conquered death and the grave when He rose from the dead in power. The chains of sin and death are broken forever, not just so we can be saved, but so that for the rest of our lives we can experience the power of that freedom and know its author personally. His name is Jesus.

We are not forced into freedom, it is a choice.  Freedom—the path to redemption—is an incredibly difficult choice.  As you watch the movie, you’ll see it played out. In Laura Hillenbrand’s book, Unbroken, Louis himself states just how hard the struggle was to walk away from “The Bird,” when he says, “It is actually hard to walk away from everything that is killing you.”

God severed the chains of bondage that had gripped Louis Zamperini’s life, and He can do the same for us today, if only we will walk away from our bondage and walk towards God, accepting the freedom He has bought for us with His own blood.

The very same choice the Hebrews faced so long ago is the choice you have before you today:  Bend your knee to Egypt, or bend your knee to the LORD GOD who has delivered you with His outstretched arm. (Or finger!)  You cannot live on both sides of the Red Sea; you must choose. Egypt will kill you in the end. The Bible tells us “the enemy “has come to steal, kill and destroy,” but Jesus has come to give LIFE and LIFE abundantly (see John 10:10).

What Does it Mean to Me?

  • What kind of life are you holding on to? Are you living a life with your knee bent in bondage to the past—toward bondage to guilt and shame? Toward enslavement to the rat race and a life defined by the power and influence of Egypt (the world and its culture)?
  • Why do we choose to live in bondage instead of freedom?
  • Why is it so hard to leave Egypt and all that it has to offer?

LIVE IT OUT

LORD, open my eyes to see You, and open my heart to follow You. Take away the struggle of chasing Egypt, and place within me a new heart to hear and follow You. Oh, that I may know the One who freed me!

God’s Endless Love: Quinn Graham

We have a modern-day psalmist on our hands:  Quinn Graham, Will Graham’s son and Billy Graham’s great-grandson, has written a special  psalm to share. This one, entitled “God’s Endless Love,” was inspired by a message Quinn recently heard his dad preach. Enjoy this reminder of God’s love…

God’s Endless Love
By: Quinn Graham

God loves us all

No matter what we do He loves us

We murder, steal, fight, and break the Ten Commandments

He still loves us

He never will forget us

He will never stop loving on us

He came down to earth for us

We tortured Him by beating Him up and then hanging Him on a cross to die

Yet, He still said that He loved us even though He was dying on the cross

Three days later He came back from the dead                                        

He came back not in revenge  for what we did to Him

But He came back in love

And His endless love will never end

He will love every single person on earth forever

No matter what we do He loves us.

Lessons from Billy Graham

Lessons from Billy Graham: What I learned portraying my grandfather in Unbroken
By: Will Graham

In 2014, Angelina Jolie directed an award-winning film called Unbroken. It tells the incredible true story of Louis Zamperini, a juvenile delinquent turned Olympian and war hero. After Louis’ WWII plane crashed in the Pacific, he floated at sea for 47 days before being captured and ruthlessly tortured by the Japanese. He survived unimaginable atrocities and starvation, finally making it home to his family after the war.

The movie Unbroken ended on a high point, but that’s not where Louis Zamperini’s story ended. In fact, the struggles were just beginning.

After returning home, Louis’ life looked great on the outside. He was a celebrity, he married a woman whom he dearly loved, and they had a beautiful little baby. On the inside, however, Louis was sinking into a dark well of despair. He suffered from what we now know as PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), was haunted by nightmares, was on the verge of divorce, and had become an alcoholic.

He had survived the ruthlessness of war, but was now on the road to destruction in peacetime.

This second part of Louis’ story is being told in the Universal Studios film Unbroken: Path to Redemption, slated for nationwide theater release on Sept. 14, 2018. In it, we witness Louis in all of his heartache and pain, but we also get a glimpse of the answer to his struggles.

You see, Louis only found true and lasting peace when he surrendered his life to Christ at my grandfather’s historic 1949 Los Angeles Crusade. After beginning a relationship with Jesus, Louis never had another nightmare, never took another sip of alcohol, and his marriage was restored.

Early last year I was approached with the unique and unexpected opportunity to portray my grandfather in the film. I’m not an actor, but I prayerfully decided to accept this role. It was a nerve-wracking experience that took me far out of my comfort zone, but it was also an incredible blessing.

The biggest impact for me came from deeply studying my grandfather in preparing for the role, immersing myself in his early sermons.

First, I was reminded of my grandfather’s deep love for – and reliance upon – the Bible. He quoted scripture repeatedly and at length throughout his messages. His most commonly used phrase was “The Bible says…” He knew that the Bible was the divine, powerful, living Word of God, and it pierced the hearts of those hearing it.

Second, my grandfather preached with a sense of urgency. He knew that heaven and hell hung in the balance. Decisions made in that massive tent on the corner of Hill and Washington streets in Los Angeles would not only affect lives, but eternities as well.

Third, my grandfather didn’t just ask people to respond to the Good News of Christ. He commanded them with an authority that could come only from God. “This may be your only chance. Come now!” he would call out. Of course, those in the audience had the free will to walk forward or not, but my grandfather made it very clear that this was their opportunity to begin a new life with Jesus.

Looking back on it, we now know that Louis Zamperini was one of those who responded to the call, and he was radically changed and saved. That was 1949, but today there are just as many – if not more – people like Louis out there. People who are lost and struggling, who have no hope or peace.

Will you be like my grandfather, holding tight to the Scripture as you share the hope that you have with urgency and authority? I’m committed to doing so, and I hope you will too.

Mercy and Grace: We Need Both

Mercy and Grace: We Need Both!

By: Will Graham

Grace and mercy. Mercy and grace. Two terms that are often used interchangeably. They go hand-in-hand, but there is indeed a difference. Mercy is not getting what you do deserve.Grace, conversely, is getting something you don’t deserve. Picture this: You’re racing down the road, handily breaking the speed limit, when suddenly you see the blue lights flashing behind you. There’s something you do deserve in this situation. You deserve a ticket and a fine. You broke the law, and there’s a penalty for that crime.After a brief conversation, the officer lets you go with a warning. That is mercy. You deserve that speeding ticket, but you are not getting what you do deserve.

Now, imagine that you have a project due at work, and – try as you may – you have not been able to complete the task. Without it, you have no chance of achieving the bonus you’ve been working towards. At the last second a colleague jumps in and saves the day, helping you with the last remaining pieces. That would be grace. No matter how hard you worked, you didn’t deserve the bonus. You fell short. But somebody else came along and provided what you needed.

Why do I bring up this distinction? Because all around us are people who desperately need both of these blessings, and they are both freely given by Christ through His death and resurrection. The Bible tells us very clearly who we are and what we deserve. We are sinners who have fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23). Because of that, we deserve death; eternal separation from the Holy and Perfect Father (Romans 6:23). No matter what we do in our own power and effort, we cannot change that fact.

But this is where Christ comes in with His mercy and His grace! We do deserve death, but as we call on His name and make Him the Savior of our lives, we receive mercy. We don’t deserve to come into the presence of God, but we are given that eternal promise through grace.

We’ve found that promise and have the hope of Christ because of it! Meanwhile, all around us are people who are struggling through this world, trying their best to do more good than bad, thinking that is their path to eternity. They’ve never truly experienced grace and mercy, though they’re hungry for it. My friends, look around you and I promise you will see someone who will break your heart; someone on a path leading to destruction. Share with them the hope that is within you, and allow God to open the door for them to “with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)

Saturday Snapshot: Will Graham Celebration

The Tri-Cities Will Graham Celebration is this weekend in Johnson City, Tennessee at the Freedom Hall Civic Center.

Since 1950, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has held Crusades all across the globe for one purpose: to proclaim God’s love to people who need Jesus Christ. Today, Will Graham Celebrations continue this life-changing mission. A Celebration is not just an evangelistic event; it is a process of prayer, training, outreach, and followup that takes place over a 12-month period—and it begins and ends with  the local church.

The Celebrations usually consist of 4 services:

  • Friday Night for Adults/Families
  • Saturday Morning KidzFest for Elementary Aged Children
  • Saturday Night for Youth
  • Sunday Afternoon for Adults/Families

“No matter where I go in the world, people seem to be searching for the same things in life,” said Graham, who returned from preaching in Romania just in time to travel to Kingsport to speak. “They want to find hope. They’re seeking their purpose. They long for peace and security. I believe that all of these elusive elements can be found in Jesus, and I’m looking forward to sharing that message with the people of the Tri-Cities area.”- Will Graham

This weekend, Will Graham shares hope from Johnson City, Tennessee, with music by Aaron Shust, Crowder, Ellie Holcomb and more. It will be streamed LIVE tonight and tomorrow if you click on this link: Will Graham Celebration Live Stream 

It will air at the following times:
Saturday, April 28 @ 6:30 ET
Sunday, April 29 @ 3:30 ET

The volunteers and team in Johnson City have been working endlessly since last fall to connect with churches and area pastors to pray and also spread the word in their communities.

We are excited and expectant of what God is going to do this weekend! We ask you also to join us in prayer for this amazing event and we hope that you can either attend the event or watch it online! Feel free to also share this link with your family and friends.
