It is the happiness and contentment that fills the soul even in the midst of the most distressing circumstances and the most bitter environment. It is the kind of happiness that grins when things go wrong and smiles through the tears. The happiness for which our souls ache is one undisturbed by success or failure, one which will deeply root inside us and give us inward relaxation, peace, and contentment, no matter what the surface problems may be. That kind of happiness stands in need of no outward stimulas.”

Do You Understand The Powerful Call Of God And Are You Ready To Pay The Price For It – The Profound Symbolism Of Billy Graham’s Simple Casket

Do You Understand The Powerful Call Of God And Are You Ready To Pay The Price For It – The Profound Symbolism Of Billy Graham’s Simple Casket.


So, I read Franklin Graham’s message on his Facebook page and also on The Cove Page about the Casket that his Father Billy Graham was going to be buried in and I got very emotional. All these emotions started bubbling inside me as I looked at the simple and yet very powerful symbol of the Casket behind a Pulpit and the accompanying words by Franklin.


On 23rd February, Franklin wrote these words: “Yesterday afternoon my father’s body was brought from the funeral home to the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove in Asheville, NC. His simple plywood casket, like my mother’s, was hand built by convicted murderers at the Angola Prison in Louisiana about twelve years ago and seems to suit him. We have a Bible with him in the casket, and the casket is directly behind a pulpit. We felt this was symbolic since he stood behind a pulpit most of his life preaching the Gospel. Billy Graham preached about Heaven, wrote books about Heaven—now he is IN Heaven. His faith has become sight.”
 


And accompanying Franklin’s profound words was this very powerful, very touching image and symbol. Indeed simple Faith had become sight. A powerful, compelling, moving sight.

I think few people understand what A CALLING means. When you are called, there is this incredibly powerful and indescribable urge to leave everything and follow Jesus.


Nothing and no one can stop the craving to just please Jesus and live your life for him. It’s so strong and mighty, nothing else matters except following the man Jesus wherever he leads you. I can certainly 1100% understand how Billy Graham could leave his family for months and go off for long crusades to preach the gospel.


Some people especially the unsaved or those who have never been called can not understand the compelling unstoppable force. And that is why some of the Liberal media like Washington Post have been writing wicked, inconsiderate, insensitive and outrightly inappropriate articles about Billy Graham, Franklin Graham and the rest of the Graham family. But those who have been truly called, can understand it very well.


But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1 Corinthians 1:24-25

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness.

1 Corinthians 1:21-23

We understand the pull Moses must have felt that day he came across the burning bush in the desert. It’s probably the same pull Billy Graham felt that compelled him to go around the world preaching the gospel so that people could be freed from their spiritual bondages and oppression.


Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”
11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
12 So He said, “I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”

Exodus 3:10-12

We understand the incredible force Paul must have experienced after his Damascus moment that caused God to turn his passion for persecution of the church into a mighty passion for preaching the gospel. Though Billy was not a Persecutor of the Church, he probably felt the same force push him to preach with such passion and commitment to presidents and all manner of world leaders.


“Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard from many people about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem. 14 And he has authority here from the chief priests to arrest all who call on Your name.”
15 But the Lord said to him, “Go! For this man is My chosen instrument to take My name to Gentiles, kings, and the Israelites. 16 I will show him how much he must suffer for My name!”

Acts 9:13-16

We understand the urge Jesus’s disciples felt when he called each of them and asked them to follow him. These men who had careers and families. Some Fishermen, Some Tax collectors, Some Doctors and yet they felt obliged to drop everything and follow Jesus immediately with simple childlike Faith where-ever he led them. It’s possibly the same Urge Billy Graham felt to just preach Jesus and make him known to the world and to be used as a vessel for the Lord.


And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. 19 Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 They immediately left their nets and followed Him.

Matthew 4:18-20

Billy Graham, thank you very much for following the call of God with commitment, devotion and faithfulness. Thank you for leaving everything behind and fully giving your life to Jesus to do as he wished. I know he is happy he chose a man like you to serve and preach the gospel. You did a phenomenal job and we are so grateful for the many painful sacrifices you made and the intense pains and challenges you might have had to endure in service to the Lord Jesus Christ.


Some of the insensitive articles in the Liberal media though wanting to taint your image actually reinforce the testimony to the life of sacrifice you lived. They are a testament to your laser focused devotion to God and to kingdom business. Our faith is deeply strengthened. 


And the powerfully symbolic  picture of your simple plywood casket built by convicted murderers behind a pulpit you stood behind for over 80 years is just so emotional. So emotional!


You truly are a disciple of Jesus and you understood the calling of God, forsook everything for it, laid your life down for it, carried your cross with diligence and now Jesus has given you back that life that you so courageously and faithfully gave to him.


Thank you Billy.


“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

Luke 14:26-27

Anne Graham Lotz Pays A Great Tribute To Her Iconic Father Billy Graham.


I love Billy Graham’s teachings and sermons. I grew up on them. His way of delivering powerful messages in simple ways endeared him to me. I love how Billy Graham taught on Righteousness and Godliness with such clarity and passion. Every time I would listen to one of his sermons, my thoughts would be, this is what I needed to hear. The world needs to hear this. Everyone needs to hear this.


The Iconic Legend who was born on November 7th, 1918 and a great servant of the Lord Jesus Christ went home to be with his Creator today February 21st, 2018. I want to thank Jesus for the gift of William Franklin Graham Jr.  and the way he was able to impact the world, change lives and literally revolutionize evangelism.


I will miss Billy Graham because his being alive always gave me great comfort as he represented a beacon of Hope and the faithfulness of God to those who serve him diligently. But his legacy lives on in the many sermons he preached and the many lives he touched.


His second daughter Anne Graham Lotz shared a great tribute to her Father on her website. It’s a wonderful message that shows Billy Graham as a simple man of Faith, Hope, and Love.


I pray we can all share the gospel and live the gospel with as much or even more passion, devotion, and commitment than Billy Graham did. Below is Anne Graham Lotz’s Tribute:


STATEMENT by ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ


Regarding the death of her father, Billy Graham


My Father’s legacy is one that encompasses the world…and engulfs my own life.  When I think of him, I don’t think of Billy Graham, the public figure.  I think of my Daddy.  The one who was always a farmer at heart.  Who loved his dogs and his cat.  Who followed the weather patterns almost as closely as he did world events.  Who wore old blue jeans, comfortable sweaters, and a baseball cap.  Who loved lukewarm coffee, sweet ice tea, one scoop of ice cream, and a plain hamburger from McDonald’s. Who was interested in everything and everyone, from the small to the great.  Whose mind remembered details that even a computer would have trouble recalling.


But when I think of him I also think of his message because he was immersed in it.  Saturated in it.  He was his message…a simple man who had responded to God’s love by placing his faith in Jesus, receiving the assurance that his sins were forgiven, that he would not perish, but would have everlasting life.  Simple faith.  Faith that now matters more than anything else.


For years, over his head as he preached was the banner that quoted the words of Jesus:  I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  Jesus completed that sentence by saying that no one comes to the Father but by Me.  Based on what Jesus said, Daddy is safely with the Father.  In Heaven. Daddy not only claimed Jesus as the only Way to God, he lived by the Truth publicly on platforms and privately behind closed doors, and is now enjoying real Life.


I have often stated that I was raised by a single parent because ministry took my father away from our family—for weeks and months at a time. Daddy estimated that he was gone from home approximately 60 percent of his children’s growing-up years. Now, he has left again.  This time, he will not be coming back. At least, not until Jesus does, too.


While he may be physically absent and his voice silent, I am confident that his message will continue to reverberate throughout the generations to come. My prayer on this day of his move to Our Father’s House is that his death will be a rallying cry.  That tens of thousands of pastors, teachers, evangelists, and ordinary men and women will rise up to take his place.  That they will take up his message like a baton being passed in a relay race and faithfully pass it on to those with whom they come in contact. Because Daddy’s message is God’s message.  And it’s a message of genuine hope for the future, of love for the present, of forgiveness for the past.


It’s a message, when received, that brings a fresh beginning, unshakable joy, unexplainable peace, eternal significance, meaning and purpose to life, and opens Heaven’s door.


It was this message, which Daddy carried to the world, that penetrated my own heart as a young girl and has created in me a personal, passionate resolve to communicate it myself to as many people as possible. And so, even as my tears seem to be unending, I silently rededicate my life to picking up and passing on the baton.  Would you do the same?


7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
2 Timothy 4:7-8
