Man of God. Servant of God. The meek and humble Billy Graham roared mightily across the last century for the Kingdom of Almighty God. The anointing that the Almighty placed upon him was incredible, was soul-searching, was terrible in a good way; in that, it brought people to the crossroads of eternity.
Billy Graham would preach a very clear and simple message of salvation through Christ, and hundreds of people would respond in turning to Christ. This is none other than the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon the evangelist.
Psalms 133:1-3, “Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down the beard, even Aaron’s beard, that went down to the skirts of his garment. As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life forevermore.”
Almighty God’s anointing upon Billy Graham was like that. It went all over his head and ran all the way down to his feet. The words that came out of Billy Graham’s mouth, while he preached, were drenched in the oil of the Holy Spirit. That unspeakable power went out over the listeners both present and over the airwaves to millions, who were moved to repentance.
Because of Billy’s humility in the face of greatness, I am confidant he will be given a position among the likes of Abraham,Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Elijah, King David, Daniel, Peter, James and John.
The life of Billy Graham is a testimony and convincing evidence of the loving kindness of Almighty God. Billy was a great example of integrity, boldness, love, kindness, manliness, humility, scandal-free, meekness, gentleness, power, and Godliness. The world desperately needs more men such as this.
Billy Graham, may you rest in peace and may you enjoy the wonders of heaven for all eternity, as I know you are right this minute.
