IN DEFENSE OF BILLY GRAHAM

“Fifty years of Gospel sermons, a righteous life, faithfulness to the same woman for life… none of this counts for anything to the damning bigots…”

Jesus loves, saves and builds up. Satan hates, condemns and tears down. Who does your example tell us that you follow?

Three lines of attack have been leveled against Billy Graham:

  1. He is a Mason.
  2. He is a Catholic.
  3. He denied that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

There are a lot of different stories told, but they all fall under one of those three headers.

Dr. Graham never drank, or caroused, or cheated on his wife. No one ever accused him of lying or stealing. He was never rich, he was an employee of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which was run by an independent board. Dr. Graham never sat on the board and he never ran the organization that bore his name. He lived all of his adult life in the same house, on the same farm in North Carolina… It was comfortable but not even close to anything you could call a mansion or a mega-home… There really was very little that one could accuse the Evangelist of doing or being that was even slightly wrong.

There are many Masons in Heaven because Billy Graham was unafraid to visit their lodges or preach the Gospel there. There are others in Heaven because he rented Masonic Halls to preach in when he was starting out… So, there are photos of Billy with Masons… “Aha! That will give ammunition to the narrow minded little bigots!” I can almost hear Satan shouting for joy… Never mind that if you were ever there, or if you listened to those programs on tape, all the good man ever did there was what he always did, preach the Gospel.

Some may not understand but when Billy started to preach, Catholics were threatened with their immortal souls if they so much as attended a picnic sponsored by an Evangelical Church. Reading a Gospel Tract was a mortal sin and they were absolutely forbidden to read the Bible for themselves. Most Catholics went to confession every week, ate fish on Fridays and never missed Mass. It was a closed society… Good Catholics would run in terror if you started to talk about Jesus…

Then, Billy Graham went to see the Pope. The Pope liked Billy and the world reeled in shock and awe when the Pope gave Catholics everywhere the right to go to Billy’s crusades and listen to him do what he always did, preach the Gospel… Millions of Catholics found Jesus at those crusades… some of them left the Catholic Church, many stayed, but they had met Jesus and that changed everything… But we have some old photos of Billy with the Pope and that is enough to bring out the bigotry and hatred in those willing to listen to the Devil…

Then, as an old man, Billy was interviewed on TV. Perhaps he was not as sharp as he once was… Maybe he never saw the trap, but he answered the question anyway… Many have pulled two or three sentences out of those interviews and used them as a reason to damn his soul and ruin his reputation. What he really said, in context, is that a man or a woman in any religion, being convicted by the Spirit of God, could find God and find salvation through the Grace of God, even if they had never heard the Name of Jesus…

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

God has witnessed to all men everywhere through Creation. Because of that witness, God says that they are “without excuse.” If they are without excuse when they reject God, would God not save those who, based on that witness, call out to him for mercy? Would God condemn those who call on him because they have never heard his Name?

No one doubts that salvation is in Christ alone. The only issue at stake here is, is it necessary to know what his Name is? Is it Jesus, the Son of God, who saves or the “magic” in his Name? Is it Jesus as both God and man who saves or is his name a magic mantra that saves those who pronounce it correctly?

Would Jesus reject a sinner who cried out to Him, confessing his sins and begging for salvation… just because the Missionary who was supposed to tell him about the Son of God stayed home and worked for McDonalds? No, God says that He has called all men everywhere… Can a Muslim or a Hindu who sees God in the Creation and calls out for mercy be saved? Billy and I maintain that God is just. Some would tell me that I am lost because I pronounce the Name of God in English and not in Hebrew… I do not believe that any more than I believe that God rejects penitent sinners because they have never heard his Name… But a couple of phrases, uttered by a very old mind, in a very old man, are enough to provide all the witness the bigots need to damn his eternal soul…

…and yes, I know that those who see his Name as a magic mantra will condemn me as a heretic.

Fifty years of Gospel sermons, a righteous life, faithfulness to the same woman for life… none of this counts for anything to the damning bigots… that is nothing compared to some old photos with Masons and the Pope and a TV interview made when senility was already setting in… No, that is far too important… Preaching the pure, Bible Gospel for fifty years to 250 million people (live) and billions on TV, counts for nothing… The 96 million people who testified that they met Jesus at his crusades are all liars, damned to the Pope’s Masonic Hell… Just ask a Facebook Christian…

Not me, no thank you… I will stand on a life lived in the public eye with not so much as a single scandal. I will stand on fifty years of documented and recorded Gospel sermons in which no heresy can be found. I will stand as one of the millions who attended his crusades and found the message faithful and true. I will stand with the billions who listened to him preach on TV, and although I was already saved, I will stand with the millions who found Jesus under his ministry.

Most of the haters will never read this, their minds have been snapped shut… A few videos, by those who’s jealously forced them to try to destroy that to which they could never attain, have convinced them that Billy was a heretic… I really want to be there when they try to explain that one to God. That should be good for more than a few laughs…

If your god has led you to hate and destroy such a man… you might look for another God…

A BRUTALLY HONEST RANT

Thus, Antichrist will be dead and resurrected. He will be Satan and he will be the son of Satan, incarnate in the body of a man…

We are out of time. Does that statement grab you? It is the truth… we are the last generation. God is giving us so many signs and the Elect can see it and feel it.

I am absolutely convinced that September 23rd marks the beginning of the Seven-Year Tribulation that will lead up to the return of Christ. I am aware that I could be wrong but I remain absolutely convinced.

I just watched Alex Jones clip concerning the soon coming assassination of Donald Trump. He played the clip from Rodney Howard Brown where he speaks of his conversation with an unnamed Senator who spoke openly of that assassination and called it unavoidable. He showed those Televangelists surrounding Trump. Trump has a look of bewilderment on his face…

I posted of Facebook, earlier today,

  • Satan often calls himself “Jesus”; he appears “as an angel of light.”
  • Jesus said, “Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow me.”
  • Satan said, “If you will bow down to me, I will give you all these things.”
  • That is a good standard by which to judge…
  • When you hear people preaching, you must ask yourself…
  • “Which Jesus is he/she/it preaching?”

Pardon me, but I think that Rodney Howard Brown and those Televangelists who prayed for Trump, preach another Jesus…

For many reasons, reasons, reasons which I have written on both here and on Facebook, I believe that this assassination is going to be used to provide Apollyon with a body (Research that). If, as I believe it will, the Tribulation starts with the sign of the Son of Man, things are going to get supernatural and they are going to get supernatural fast.

This is a rant, not a theological thesis, but all the reasons for what I am saying have been discussed, at length on this blog and a million other places… Do your homework…

Scripture speaks to Satan being cast to the earth and of Apollyon rising. Apollyon is Nimrod, is Gilgamesh, is Osiris/Horus, is Apollo, is Abaddon… One guy with many names. He was the bad guy at the fall of Babel.

His Spirit/soul has been confined in Tartarus since the death of his body. He is, by legend, three quarters fallen angel and one quarter human. He is Nephilim. He has no body but he will rule the world. He is of the seven and the eighth world ruler, the first and the last. Satan’s Antichrist.

I believe that he will be much like Jesus, in a bad way. Satan only copies and twists… he will do nothing new. Antichrist will be the first and the last (world ruler). He will appear to be dead and resurrected. As Jesus has visible wounds, so the Antichrist will have visible wounds, mortal wounds.

This is what I believe is being set up now with the well planned and publicized assassination of Trump.

The Capitol Dome is the “Womb of Isis” (Where Horus is born as Osiris reincarnated) The Washington Monument is the Phallus of Osiris… There is a pagan goddess mounted on top of the dome and the inside is covered with The Apotheosis of Washington, where he is shown, as God, on a throne, surrounded by pagan gods and goddesses. This has been planned for centuries.

When Trump is assassinated, his body will lie in state, in the Womb of Isis, for three days. If Satan can pull it off, and I believe that this is his time, Apollyon will escape, without a body. Trump will be in Hell, his body in the womb of Isis.

You can read, on this blog, all the reasons that I believe that Pope Francis is the False Prophet. I believe he will come for Trump’s funeral. This has nothing to do with whether they like each other or not…

What I believe will happen then is that the Pontiff will pray and Apollyon will enter the dead body of Trump and animate it. There, in the Womb of Isis, Antichrist will be born… and the whole world will marvel and follow after the Beast.

I would fully expect a Marian Apparition (Isis) to appear at the time and declare to the world,

“This is my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

Thus, Antichrist will be dead and resurrected. He will be Satan and he will be the son of Satan, incarnate in the body of a man…

All this will happen at the sign of the Son of Man. Alex Jones, Rodney Howard Brown, and every preacher of that other Jesus, will pronounce this as a true miracle from God and demand that Christians everywhere follow Trump and Pope Francis…

“Obviously,” they will shout, “this is none other than Jesus Christ returned to lead the world…” Millions and millions of “Christians” will believe them and swear their allegiance.

I can see this as if it happened yesterday and was on the News all day today…

Could this just be my imagination? Of course. We will soon see.

Even if I am wrong, wouldn’t this be a great time to get right with Jesus?

YOUTUBE PROOFS

Let’s get one thing straight, YouTube videos never prove anything. Not a day goes by that someone on Facebook, or using messenger, does not send me a YouTube video with the word proof in the title and a comment telling me that “This video will prove…”

I have received videos that “prove” that:

  • The earth is flat,
  • The earth is round,
  • We never went to the moon,
  • We did go to the moon,
  • Antichrist will be an American,
  • Antichrist is from Turkey,
  • Antichrist will be a Pope from Rome,
  • Antichrist will come from Saudi Arabia,
  • The Beast will rule a ten nation European Federation,
  • The New World Order has already been divided into 10 districts by the UN,
  • Obama is the Antichrist,
  • Trump is the Antichrist,
  • Jared Kushner is the Antichrist,
  • Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the Antichrist,
  • The Roman Catholic Church is the Kingdom of the Beast,
  • Antichrist will be Muslim.
  • Antichrist will be Catholic,
  • Antichrist will be a demon posing as an alien.
  • The Tribulation will start in 2015,
  • The Tribulation will start in 2016,
  • The Tribulation will start in 2017,
  • The Tribulation will start in 2022,
  • Paul was not an Apostle and his letters are not Scripture,
  • You cannot be saved unless you address God in Hebrew,
  • You cannot be saved if you go to church on Sunday,

All of these things, and a hundred more, are absolutely proven on YouTube videos… at least according to the titles.

Get Real!

Facebook, YouTube and Heresy

Heresy, almost without exception, is truth, taken to a ridiculous, unbiblical and ungodly extreme.

The Bible is simple. The Gospel is straightforward. YouTube and Facebook are tailor made for heretics, making experts out of the ignorant. Anybody, with any idea, can become a Facebook Pundit or a YouTube Guru. It would seem that the more outlandish the idea, the faster one can gain a following.

People with degrees in Dental Technology are now Flat-Earth Experts, having used a Dental X Ray machine to prove that there is no curvature to the earth’s surface. People whose sole qualification is three years in the Church Nursery are now Theologians, certain that a few flowery lines of Biblical Poetry should force Christians everywhere to abandon the preaching of the Gospel and devote their lives to proving the earth to be flat.

At the same time, others are twisting Scripture, writing long essays about why Paul was not an Apostle and his letters are not Scripture. They do this because they want us to believe that our salvation depends on our ability to keep the Law of Moses or perhaps to pronounce the Name of God in good Hebrew with a South Georgia accent. Paul disagrees and them edumacated Christian preachers just won’t stop quoting Paul.

We have a new group trying to hijack my Facebook page and preach their “new doctrine” in comments under my posts. They do not yet know that their “New Doctrine” was around so long ago that Paul himself was forced to fight them. These brilliant Facebook Pundits, armed with videos by YouTube Gurus, believe that they have reached a state of sinless perfection, while still in the body. This is ancient Gnosticism. “In my spirit I am sinless and what my body does does not count. I can live with my twelve year old son in a same sex relationship and still be sinless before God. My soul is not sinning, just my body.” John says that if we say we have no sin, we make God a liar and the truth is not in us… That being true, these theological wonders would have us believe that because we admit that we sin and have need of forgiveness, we are somehow defective.

The “Sinless Perfection” people have broken off from the slightly older heresy called Hyper-Grace. Hyper-Grace uses the Grace of God as an excuse to sin. In its milder forms, it accepts sinful lifestyles as normal and unavoidable for Christians. You were born Gay so you might as well bring your same-sex lover to church and hold hands while you praise God. In its most offensive stage, Hyper-Grace insists that the Grace of God and the Blood of Jesus have saved all mankind and 100% of everybody is going to end up in Heaven, whether they want to be there or not. Christians, forgiven, washed in the Blood, made clean and Born Again at the Cross, love Jesus.  Hyper-Grace believers, use Jesus. Sin hurts God. Sin nailed Jesus to the cross. Sin bothers and hurts Christians. Sin is a plaything for the Hyper-Grace people… They have no love for God… no relationship with Jesus. What hurts God, what nailed Jesus to the cross is of no consequence to them… they could care less… To live in sin for a lifetime and gain Heaven when you die… what a deal!

The Gospel is this: Jesus died to save sinners, of whom I am chief. We are free from the Law. We are saved by Grace, through faith in the Son of God. Having been saved, we are filled with the Spirit of God. We enter into an intimate, husband – wife type relationship with Jesus Christ. We take up our cross, die to ourselves daily, and follow him. Because we love him, we obey him and do what pleases him. We do not have to sin but we do sin. When we sin, the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin. We sorrow and grieve because we have hurt the God we love. We confess our sin and He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

John, in his first Epistle, finds a wonderful balance:

1 John 1:Now this is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in Him. If we say, “We have fellowship with Him,” yet we walk in darkness, we are lying and are not practicing the truth. But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

Paul also finds balance:

Romans 6:15 What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Absolutely not! 16 Don’t you know that if you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of that one you obey—either of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But thank God that, although you used to be slaves of sin, you obeyed from the heart that pattern of teaching you were transferred to, 18 and having been liberated from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness.

Heresy, almost without exception, is truth, taken to a ridiculous, unbiblical and ungodly extreme. From his first question, “Hath God said…?” Satan has sought to twist Scripture, bending the very Word of God, to lead men and women astray. Scripture is balanced. Heresy is lopsided. Scripture is Christocentric. Heresy is always Egocentric. Stick with Doctrine that glorifies God. Stick with doctrine that centers on Christ. Stick with doctrine that finds a balance… Run from the extremes of the heretics.
