Billy Graham has gone Home to be with Jesus at 99

Billy Graham has gone Home to be with Jesus at 99

Pastor Michael Seely, of the First Presbyterian Church in Parkersburg, described him as a wonderful man.

Simmons attended a crusade in Chicago in 1962. "Like he said, 'Christ is in heaven, and Ruth is in heaven, ' and he said, 'One day, I'm going to be in heaven'".

He heard Graham again in Syracuse in 1989. "When you listen to Billy Graham there is no theatrics here, this guy means it. He also came at my invitation to one of our Team retreats during the Crusade to help us understand the racial situation in America more fully". "They were held for seven days".

"We will never see another like him", he added.

Born William Franklin Graham on November 7, 1918, the man fondly recognized as "America's pastor" came from humble beginnings and grew up on a dairy farm in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In recent years Billy lived in a simple log home in the mountains of western North Carolina.

Several websites, including The Daily Caller, pointed out that Obama has been attacked by LGBT activists for his praise for Graham, with social media users seeing a contradiction between Obama's embrace of gay marriage and Graham's warnings on homosexuality.

Having said that, I remember about twenty years ago a conversation I was having with a woman about the Lord in general and about Billy Graham, whose name had come up as we talked. The procession is expected to take 3 ½ hours, ending at the Billy Graham Library. "He was incredibly passionate for evangelism and he influenced every level of American life. Our hope is not in Billy Graham, but the Savior to Whom he bore witness".

Greenway continued, "I think his greatest legacy would not only be those whom he personally impacted through his evangelistic ministry, but the scores of pastors and evangelists who have been trained to preach the same gospel that he so faithfully proclaimed".

The body of the late Rev. Billy Graham will lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol, congressional leaders announced Thursday, with the evangelist becoming the first religious leader to be honored by the nation in that way. Graham responded: "I have read almost everything Mr. Niebuhr has written and I feel inadequate before his brilliant mind and learning".

"Billy Graham was a strong, humble, positive and passionate North Carolina man of faith who made a difference in the lives of so many", said Cooper. Billy Graham learned that lesson the hard way, until he knew it by heart.

"When I found out the news this morning, I was really moved by his death", said Floyd, who served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention in 2015 and 2016.

"She and I were just talking about (Graham) yesterday and how much he was ready to go home and be with the Lord", Jeffress said.

Graham was recently portrayed as a spiritual adviser to the young Queen Elizabeth II in the recent Netflix television series "The Crown".

"I'm so thankful that I got know Dr".

Graham kept a lower profile later in life, but still kept in touch with presidents.

Graham held a four-day crusade in Louisville in June 2001 in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. "He was one of the towering figures of the last 100 years - an American hero whose life and leadership truly earned him the title 'God's Ambassador, '" Trump's statement read. I mean that in the most positive possible sense.
