Stand in Faith
How to Stand in Faith
The late great evangelist Billy Graham went out to spread the good news of Jesus Christ for over 60 years and was one of the most respected religious figures in America in his day. There is a story told about Reverend Graham, it seems that one day he was confronted by a non-believer who snidely put the question to him, “Reverend Graham, do you really believe that Jonah was swallowed by a whale?” Billy is reported to have answered, “Not only do I believe that a whale swallowed Jonah, I also believe if God had wanted him to, Jonah would have swallowed the whale.” Billy Graham was beloved around the world. He had said on many occasions that when he started out he really believed that if he went out and preached the gospel the whole world would come to Christ. Now that’s how you stand in Faith. Maybe Billy missed the mark by a bit. But, remember, it isn't over until it's over.
So, there is still time. Get out there you young people who love Christ! Don't dream of creating a mega church and handing it down to your sons like a family business. Don't dream of preaching to thousands and making money like a corporate tycoon. Take the world out of the church and put the church back into the world. If you dream, dream of millions being baptized in the blood of Jesus Christ. Carry THAT message into all the world.
Do not be afraid. And, like the Reverend Billy Graham, when you go out believe that the whole world is going to come to know Him, that the whole world will come to Christ. That is the mission given us by the greatest evangelist of all time, Jesus Christ.
Some years ago, in January of 2017, a new President of the United States was inaugurated, Donald J. Trump. Over the years, Americans had become used to Inauguration Ceremonies beginning and ending with prayer; however, they were not used to hearing the name of Jesus mentioned during the prayers. However, when Donald Trump was inaugurated as 45th President of the United States, prayers ended with “in the name of Jesus!”. And, one of those speaking the name with authority was the eldest son of the great Billy Graham. Carrying on the traditions of his father’s evangelistic mission, Franklin Graham has a great ministry called Samaritan’s Purse that brings hope to the bruised and injured around the world. www.samaritanspurse.org/ Check out the ministry of Franklin Graham and decide whether or not you would like to be involved.
On the contrary… Recently, when Joe Biden was inaugurated, the prayers spoken at his Inauguration ceremony all referred to various gods: Allah, Buddha, the great spirit, or any version thereof, demonstrating just how ignorant Democrat Party functionaries are concerning matters of Christianity. The Democrat Party is essentially rabidly secular; however, many pretend to be something else in order to gain a few votes from Christians. Consider this, when the House of Representatives convened in January of 2021 AD, a Congressman who had supported Biden wholeheartedly led the opening prayer, which in his ignorance of scripture, he ended by saying A-men and A-women… thinking he was being inclusive as far as gender is concerned. It was quite embarrassing.
The word Amen, as all Christians know, does not refer to gender… Amen is derived from the Hebrew word āmēn, which means, certainly, or true, or so it is. It has nothing to do with men or any gender.
For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his father’s, and of the holy angels. Luke 9:26

Go to Israel… Jesus said at one point that he would have taken Jerusalem under His wing like a mother hen protecting her chicks, except for her sins. Jesus loved Jerusalem. Every Christian should long to see the City of David. But, everyone, unfortunately, is not in a financial situation that would allow them to do so. So, you do it for them. If you can afford it, visit Jerusalem, and travel to Israel. Walk in those places where Jesus walked. You will be blessed.
