Important Anniversary for the World — Billy Graham Chooses Jesus Christ 80 years ago – Nov. 1

These are the kinds of numbers I pay attention to — the ones that tug at my Spirit. Billy Graham, evangelist to the world, bringer of the gospel of the good news of salvation — an embodiment of the church age — chooses Jesus Christ as his personal savior at a revival meeting with Mordecai Ham exactly 80 years ago tomorrow — the day after Halloween – 1935. Just seems significant. On the very next day from that which is celebrated on 10/31 — a light is made to shine into the world. He responds in obedience and uses his gift of evangelism boldly — never wavering. His crusades have brought untold people into the kingdom of God. His family legacy continues with the evangelistic giftings — a legacy of faith and evangelism passed on by the Holy Spirit to his children including Anne, Franklin and grandson, Will. Mr. Graham has been given a very long life on this blue marble of planet earth — very close to 100 years.

As of today, he is still with us. The Holy Spirit which lives within him still burns brightly as a lamp to the unsaved world. He still intercedes in prayer between God and man — which always comforts me. I consider him to be as Noah’s ark. A doorway which only God can close in due time. Choose the free gift of a pardon from your sins by believing in God’s only son, Jesus Christ, while the door to the church age is still open.  Lay down stubborn pride that you can save yourself by good works…or arrogance in saying that the world will always be as it has been. The Bible gives a definite ending to this present age of grace which only the father knows. One minute after he withdraws his offer of free pardon and you realize your mistake, it will be too late. You will have chosen by default.
