My wife and I were notified that we needed to leave the school. We were in the school weight room before 6am when we heard there was a threat and the school wold be locked-down. Announcements were made over the intercom and we left. Our daughter was talking to officials because students had come to her with a copy of the threat over social media.
Billy Graham was buried today. Reverend Graham had told people that if they hear of his death, they should not believe the report. He went on to say that when he dies, it will merely be a change of address. Since Graham's passing away from this life, he has been living and enjoying the very presence of God that he has preached about for decades.
was in eight grade when I attended one of his crusades in Minnesota held at Midway stadium in 1973. His message was very basic. You are lost without Jesus Christ. Billy Graham said this about his preaching, "During all my years as an evangelist, my message has always been the Gospel of Christ. It is not a Western religion, nor is it a message of one culture or political system . . . it is a message of life and hope for all the world."
When Reverend Graham gave the invitation for people to repent of their sins and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, people flocked to the front of the stage. Billy used his spiritual gift of evangelism to the fullest.
"I haven't written my own epitaph, and I'm not sure I should. Whatever it is, I hope it will be simple, and that it will point people not to me, but to the One I served." Billy Graham
