Billy Graham Passes Away At The Age Of 99

William Franklin Graham Jr., the Southern Baptist minister who preached the gospel to more people than any other person in history, passed away today at the age of 99.  It has long been thought by many students of Bible prophecy that his passing might signal the nearness of the rapture because of his pivotal role as the world's most well-known preacher in the last days.  Graham died, or, more accurately, fell asleep (1 Thess. 4:13–18), exactly 153 days after Feast of Trumpets 2017 and 88 days before Pentecost 2018.  Abraham was 99 years old when God established an everlasting covenant with him, changed his name from Abram, commanded him to be circumcised, and promised him a son—the son of promise—not only Isaac, but also Christ and the Church (Gen. 17:1–27).

His passing marks the end of the earthly life of a man whose preaching won over literally millions of people to the simple truth of the gospel, including one Louie Zamperini, the subject of the movie Unbroken.  Graham has his detractors, even here at Unsealed, but I'm not one of them.  He was not a perfect person, but neither am I.  He preached the gospel as best as he knew how and devoted his life to reaching the masses with the good news of free pardon through faith in Jesus Christ—a message not heard in many other Christian denominations, including the Roman Catholic Church.

And as if perfectly, dare I say, divinely, planned, news broke just yesterday that the United States is finalizing its long-awaited Middle East peace plan and just briefed the United Nations Security Council on some if its key details.  We're here folks, so get ready and stay alert.  The Revelation 12 Sign and all of the incredible subsequent signs were a red alert—perhaps the final major alarm for the Church.

I'm reminded that Methuselah died the very year the Flood came and that if Graham is a type of Methuselah, perhaps his death might indicate the proximity of the next (and final) global cataclysm.  After all, it is the completion of the gospel being preached to all nations that signals the Day of the LORD.  Consider what Graham's daughter, Anne Lotz, said about her father just a few short years ago as reported in The Christian Post:

Lotz, who has previously said that she believes the Rapture will occur during her lifetime, reasoned that the fact that her father is still alive might have something to do with the return of Christ.

'I thought it had to do with the Return of Jesus and I won't go there right now, but I wonder also if [my father] is here ... to be an encouragement to you — that there is a man that is still faithful, still has a heart for the Gospel, heart for God, heart for the lost and still prays,' she continued. 'In fact, he prays in his preaching voice. He is still kicking. Maybe that will encourage you to be faithful through persevering in the ministry to which God has called you.'

In an interview with The Christian Post following her speech, Lotz clarified what she meant when she said her father's aliveness could possibly have something to do with the coming of Christ.

'My father's life is very unique. His life in ministry will never be equalled. The fact that he is still on this planet at 97 years of age, that is not an accident,' she explained. 'God is not whimsical and he does everything intentionally. The fact that my father is still here, God is holding him for a reason.'

'One of the things that I thought possibly — only God would know — when my father goes to Heaven, one more time, the Gospel will be preached to the whole world,' Lotz continued.

She cited Matthew 24:14, which states: 'And this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.'

  1. Greetings Fam. I know that many of us have had this one tucked away in our hip pockets and were a bit jolted at this morning's news. Not to brush over the falling asleep of this pillar of the modern Christian moment but it sure seems timely to me, you? Coming on the heels of my post, yesterday, about the closing 'wound' of Jupiter possibly signaling the final moments before the Bride is called to 'Arise My Love!" it only makes sense that we would see this, today.

    Couple of thoughts. 99 is a double 9 and thus Express a realized perfection state, since it is in relation with the number of the perfection, 9 (and) According to Bercelius, this number would be the equivalents of the Gold, symbol of the Pure Spirit. (and) Number of ewe left in the parabola of Jesus to go to seek the hundredth that was lost. (Mt 18:12)

    Now look at 100: Symbolism of the martyrdom, according to saint Augustin. (and) In the Christian literature, the number 100 appears as symbol of the celestial beatitude. (and) The hundredfold is promised to who has left all for Our Lord. (Mk 10:30){RidingTheBeast.com} And, of course, 100 is 10x10 & 10: Ten generations of man lived on the earth before the flood waters came and swept away all those who were disobedient. Noah, the tenth generation, was 600 years when he and seven other family members entered the ark. {Biblestudy.org}

    So, Billy leaves us at an age symbolizing double-completion as well as double-blessing of the Fruits of the Spirit, how appropriate. Interestingly, 99 also strikes us as 'just short' of 100, not quite there YET, but as CLOSE as you can be without arriving.

    100 symbolizing the two-sided coin of Martyrdom and the 100-fold blessing awarded to those who left ALL for the Lord, as Billy has now done fully. For the 100th sheep the Good Shepard left the sheepfold to seek and find the one lost. This so perfectly frames the life and passing of Billy Graham that it rises above all the others. As one of the lost sheep whom the Good Shepard carried back to the fold, I praise Him and thank Him for Billy's life and devotion and, perhaps, for Billy's companionship at a wedding, very soon. Maranatha!

    1. Hey Jimboni,

      What's this news with Jupiter? I didn't hear about that.

    2. Don't know about his post, but there has been various news about the GRS on Jupiter, that it is shrinking and may disappear.


    3. Gary, Jimboni commented yesterday on the article about Zephaniah 2:1-3 regarding the symbolism of Jupiter's great red spot storm disappearing.

      You can see his post there near the bottom of the comments. I found that whole event interesting because a day before there was news of the storm on Neptune also disappearing. What are the odds?

      I proposed, are the storms ending a sign of the wars in heaven now ending?

      Here are the links to both articles.

      Neptunes Storm is ending

      Jupiters Storm is ending

    4. Maybe that hundredth sheep represents the nation of Israel?

    5. Amen brother i cried most of the day today especially after reading this post amen ! Love you all.!


  2. Off topic. I had no idea there was a battle of Megiddo in 1918. That makes this year much more interesting, prophetically


    1. Holy smokes, that's amazing.

      And it began 100 years before, TO THE DAY, from this year's Yom Kippur / Day of Atonement:


    2. Things are getting exciting.

      I'm somewhat now convinced that God is not using a biblical 360-day year during the age of grace and that the biblical 360-day year seems applicable to when God has his attention back on Israel.

      At first I thought that doesn't sound encouraging because that might mean we have another 10-12 years to go. But if Enoch was a type for the rapture and Noah was a type for the Jews being preserved through the tribulation, then we know a period of time has to lapse between the rapture and the start of Daniel's 70th week. That could mean we are much closer to the rapture.

    3. Wow i had no idea about that battle simply amazing !!!

  3. Thank you Brother Graham for your diligent and obedient service unto the LORD and His Kingdom. Your legacy is secure in the arms of the LORD our G-d.

    2. Yes, and Bihlly Graham speaking in 1997 suddenly (?) promoting a brand new gospel:


      I won't be a part of those hypocrites seeing him in Heaven. His death today is certainly significant, but he is not from us. 1 John 2:19 MARANATHA!

    3. Hi Annabel, I'm not following you on that link. The link does seem to have an agenda but I don't think their comments are in context to what was discussed in those interviews. (Perhaps I missed something but in all the searching for content that I have done just this morning, I have yet to find anything that raises *flags* concerning his preaching...and keep in mind I work in national Christian broadcasting).

    4. Wow....Each of Billy Graham's sermons saved many times more souls than my whole lifetime...Do not shame a dead man whom you do NOT know his heart...but shame me while I am alive for not saving as many souls as I should be!!!

      I feel like taking a bath.

    5. https://youtu.be/8_H29CqpSWU

      Billy Graham’s own words.

      GOD’S word:
      John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    6. Richard, for sure I will keep in mind your "Christian broadcasting" remark. You haven't lost your job and income ever for spreading the true gospel though, have you? LOL

    7. Annabel ... may I just remind you that the Bible is replete with examples of leaders and people He chose to use in spite of their many failings ... So in all gentleness and with love - I would caution you to lift your hand against the Lord's anointed... 1 Sam 24:6, 26:9, 2 Sam 1:14

    8. @Annabel, in these parts? Yes, you can loose your job for telling the truth. Absolutely. There is a great intolerance for dissenting opinions, especially politically. As for my position? I work for the LORD Himself and He takes care of us. I make no direct salary from my work.

  4. Steven Ben Noon at the Israeli News Live YT channel has made a video back in 2013 about a dream he had concerning Rev Billy Graham. In his dream he's been told that the rapture will happen sometime after the death of Rev. Billy Graham. Today, Steven has mentioned that dream in a short video again and here's the link to his video from 2013 where he talks about his dream:

    (titled: "Billy Graham dies just before the Rapture!")


    1. Wow, Nora!

      [youtube width="320" height="266" src="2Uej-Memvqc"/]

    2. Indeed, Gary! :-) (Don't get me wrong brethren, I'm not rejoycing over Rev. Graham's death, far from it! I'm just excited over Steven Ben Noon's dream.)

  5. "Graham has his detractors, even here at Unsealed, but I'm not one of them."

    Nor am I. Thank you for this article.

  6. Yeah, the video. I too am totally stoked (perhaps "freaked" would be more accurate), because I viewed Steven Ben-DeNoon's video when it was first posted a number of years ago.

    I confess that I'm not one who is typically inclined to put a lot of stock in people's dreams and such, so I just tucked it in my back pocket at the time. But I have always had tremendous respect for Steven Ben-DeNoon--enough to take whatever he says seriously, even if I happen to disagree on a minor detail here and there.

    So here we are.

    1. I'm digging to find more examples, but I think Steven was only one of several or many others that reported having similar dreams about the rapture happening shortly after Graham's passing.

  7. This morning I awoke seeing the number "nine". I did not know why; I did however know the Holy Spirit gave it to me. It was clear and certain. I wondered what it meant, but felt it had something to do with a finality or completion. A moment later, my alarm went off. I have my cell phone set to wake me and tell me the news for the day. The first thing it said was Billy Graham has died today at age 99.

    I just wanted to testify to my experience today. I hope it encourages you like it encourages me. Shalom.

  8. So, Very strange, I thought I had already read this article and Billy Graham had already died. I even told my husband that a few days ago! I am massively confused since i did not even know who he was until your previous article about him turning 99.

    Another note, exactly 40 weeks (human gestation!) from the Rev 12 sign in June 30, 2018. Anyone think of this timeframe for possible rapture? Please see:


    1. Stephanie, the press put out an article a few years back saying he had died but then retracted it and apologised. THats why it seems familiar.

  9. Well that should put him near the front of the Resurrection Line when the Rapture does happen..Rest In Peace Billy..see ya soon!..

    1. I guess I will see him ONCE in fact: in court.


      Didn't you know? 1 John 2:19


    2. Annabel.. Billy Graham is woven into the fabric of my youth and memories, I've always loved him. I'll let God be The Judge. Loveya Sis..

    3. Annabel
      Please read this before you degrade Billy Graham


    4. KJS you know what? I read Galatians 1:8-9 instead. That's taken from my handbook. MARANATHA!

    5. Annabel.... surely you know that just because something is on you tube, it doesn't make it truth. God knows there's plenty of lies & hoodwinking going on right now, ESPECIALLY on you tube.

    6. Billy Graham was totally against same sex marriage, and abortion....much more so than our watered down feel good churches that are cowering away from Biblical principals, tickling the ears of their flock telling them what they want to hear.

      Yea...we need more Billy Grahams in my opinion.

    7. KJS - thank you for sharing that post because I so needed to hear this! God Bless.

    8. Thank you, Gods Warrior! 😊

    9. Call me a semi-detractor, but I think the problem with Annabel's statements is not because she made them, but because we haven't actually adequately refuted them.

      The youtube clips are of incredible concern, and tell me how one can 'twist and distort' what has been noted on the clips. Many articles have been written on Billy Grahams ecumenical ways, and words that are 'from the horses mouth', are very difficult to argue.

      Yes - you shouldn't believe everything you read and see, but how else do we make a judgement on someones fruit? Jimboni was kind enough to point out Philippians 1:15-18 which proclaims that even if a person had a wrong intention when preaching the gospel, praise God that the gospel is being preached. However a right gospel doesn't make for a righteous man. And Annabel has been quick to point out that even Billy Graham preaching a 'right gospel' has been called into question.

      So being saved through Billy Grahams ministry does not make a genuine sheep out of the man, just like someone being saved through Kenneth Croplands ministry does not make him a 'minister of the gospel'.

      And we all know that God promised that wolves would parade around in sheeps clothing. We know for a fact that there are plenty of sheep out there...our ability to distinguish the genuine sheep from the wolves masquerading as sheep is a lot more difficult and takes significants amount of discernment.

      So bravo Annabel for pointing out your concerns. They may be heavy handed in one direction, but at least you haven't skived away from openly declaring your concerns. Concerns I must admit I have shared for a number of years.


    10. TY Ryan for your well-balanced reply, EXACTLY. If someone is and was EVER saved, he/she was saved by GOD ALONE not men(s) preaching. To me BG is not a Methusalah type for sure just because of his death before the flood but rather a "Baalam" (because of all his teaching in LIFE) who led the Israelites to worship false Gods as he couldn't curse them because GOD protected them. We will soon find out who will rather follow God than men (Exodus 32:26). Stay blessed, brother!

  10. 99 years + 99 days + 7

    God's 3-Part Harvest from Perry Stone

    Barley - @ Passover
    Wheat - @ Pentecost
    Grapes - @ Tabernacles

    1. Don't forget Purim February 28.

    4. Thank you Archangel [Mr. HL],

      An oversight on my part and maybe a HUGE oversight. Could Purim hold more clues?

      Purim is in the month of Adar (upcoming on the 28th of Feb) yet Esther was crowned queen in Tebeth (the 10th month) Esther 2:16-17.

      Purim is when the almond trees bloom and the time of the citrus fruit harvest. Note: many Watchman have posted YTV regarding their dreams of citron or citrus fruits (i.e., lemons).

      Could their dreams be leading us toward Purim and could Purim be tied to the Last Great Day? Also note: I believe John 6:40 is an overlooked rapture verse where Jesus clearly states it (...I (Jesus) will raise him (believers) up at the Last Day).

      While it seems clear she was crowned queen in Tebeth, there is some speculation it was during Hanukkah (Kislev). Do some searching on Purim + Rapture.

    5. Charlie in DC, actually I was thinking more along the line of war between Persia and Israel in light of the recent drone incident. I would never put it past Iran to attack Israel on a Jewish holiday.

  12. The three main feast days of Israel are associated with different harvests.

    (1) The barley ripens first around the time of Passover;
    (2) The wheat ripens later around the time of Pentecost; and
    (3) The grapes ripen last just prior to the feast of Tabernacles.

    These three crops depict three classes of people on Earth. The barley represents the overcomer; the wheat represents the Church; and the grapes represent the unbelievers.

    < The Barley Wave-Sheaf Offering >

    The wave-sheaf offering shortly after Passover was the first fruits of the barley that the priest offered to God in the early spring. It was always waved “on the day after the Sabbath” after Passover (Lev. 23:11). This day is sometimes called the feast of the first fruits.

    Barley was the first crop to ripen in the spring in Canaan and Egypt. In fact, the Hebrew month of Abib (“green ears”) has direct reference to the ripening of barley in that month. On the first day of that month, the priest would inspect a sheaf of barley to see if it had “eared out” yet. If so, it was announced to all the people that Passover would be observed in Jerusalem two weeks later. If the barley grain was still closed, with the grain covered by the husk, the priest would announce that they would have to wait another month before Passover could be observed lawfully.

    In such a case, a 13th month would be added to the previous year, rather than starting the new year with that month. Lunar months are only 29 1/2 days long, so 12 lunar months only covered 354 days. Thus, in order to keep pace with the seasons and the solar cycles, the Hebrews would add a reset month every two or three years. The earing of the barley determined whether that month was to be a 13th “reset” month or the first month of the new year.

    This was also important, because it retained the symbolism of Israel’s feast days.

    Passover signified the death of the lamb and had prophetic reference to the crucifixion of Jesus. The wave-sheaf offering signified resurrection from the dead, for on this day Jesus was raised. Thus, the people could not lawfully observe the Passover unless the barley was eared out, for this signified newness of life.

    Jesus presented Himself before His Father in the heavenly Temple at the time the priest waved the barley sheaf in the earthly temple. The waving motion, up and down, signified resurrection.

    Note: Though Jesus had actually been raised from the dead “very early in the morning” (Luke 24:1), He did not allow Mary to touch Him prior to the wave-sheaf offering (John 20:17). Not until the wave-sheaf offering was Jesus declared legally alive in the court of heaven.

  13. Barley Ripens First

    When God was dealing with Pharaoh to allow Israel to leave, He sent ten plagues upon Egypt. The 7th plague was that of hail, which destroyed the barley and flax, but not the wheat and spelt. (This took place just prior to the Passover, which took place with the tenth plague, the death of the firstborn.)

    Exodus 9:31-32
    Now the flax and the barley were ruined, for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was in bud. But the wheat and the spelt were not ruined; for they ripen late.

    The barley was ripe and eared out just prior to that first Passover. But the wheat was not yet ripe. 40 years later, when Israel was ready to cross the Jordan. Joshua sent two spies to Jericho. It was the time of Passover (Joshua 5:10), and Rahab hid the spies under stalks of flax (Joshua 2:6). Flax ripened at the same time as barley, from Exodus 9:31. Linen comes from flax. It was used to make priestly garments, and in Revelation 19:8 we see that “fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”

    The week after Passover is also called the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The people were required to remove all leaven from their houses for a full seven days. Leaven is symbolic of sin; thus, removing the leavened bread depicts the removal of all sin from one’s house (body). This is the same symbolism as we find in flax, for to be clothed in flax (linen) is to depict putting on the righteousness of Christ.

    So all of these things work together, woven into a complete picture of the plan of God for Christ and the overcoming body. The body of Christ (the overcomers) who are identified with their Head will soon follow Him in the first resurrection.

  15. Also regarding the first major "Exodus" or Exit after Passover, it was also the Exit into the "Promised Land." They of course wandered for 40 years but...

    So, could Passover into First Fruits also be when the believing Body/Bride's "Exit" is from this Earth and "Entry" into the "Heavenly Promised Land?"

    We are the Lord's First Fruits | Offering | Bride so...we need to be taken / snatched/ plucked from this Earth to be presented to the awaiting Bridegroom.

    *The 3/31/18 Blue Moon happens 188 days from Rev 12 sign;
    *The 3/31/18 Blue Moon rises when Passover begins (sundown);
    *First Fruits happens on the world's All Fools Day: 4/1/18;

  17. ENOCH says 6th Seal & Darkness on Passover

    From TimFoster405

  18. The picture above taken at UN Security Council meeting wherein members of the council stood for a minutes silence in honour of the death 1 year ago of the gifted and much admired representative of Russia Federation on Security council. Please correct the intimation because it appears as if you wish to let your guests assume the security council stood in silence for Mr Billy Graham.

    By the way my mum came to Christ in an outback town in Australia called Toowoomba when she walked with his sister to the stage and Graham poured the blessing upon her.

    But woe to you Americans who think you are not the King of the South. Putin has rebuilt over 20,000 churches destroyed by communism. He has built more than 7000 new churches as well. Demonizing Putin is a serious mistake. But even the elect will fail. America you descend into psychosis. You are not exceptional. You simply copy the phrase Deutschland uber alles...Germany above everyone else...USA above everyone else...makes one want to vomit you out one would think.

    1. The link associated with the image above explains the image perfectly:

      "U.S. United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley (C) White House senior adviser Jared Kushner (L) and Jason Greenblatt (R), U.S. President Donald Trump's Middle East envoy, stand before the start of a Security Council meeting on the situation in the Middle East at the United Nations in New York, U.S., Feb. (photo credit: LUCAS JACKSON/REUTERS)"

      It has nothing to do with standing in silence for Billy Graham, as you can verify using the links.

      How wonderful that your mum came to Christ!

      Is it well with your own soul, friend?

    2. IzBMono. Clearly you have issues with the US which is your problem. As far as "USA above everyone else..", I place first priority on everyone that lives within the 4 walls of my house above all other humans. Just as the US should put the interests of US citizens first with respect to working with other countries. I would expect every leader of every country to look out for their people first.

  19. In April of 2015 Billy Graham says, in no uncertain terms, "There is no other way of salvation except through the cross of Christ..." He was 97(?). Consider this... prayerfully, before you condemn Billy Graham.

    at 6:05 in...

    1. Exactly right. I've seen many quotes attributed to Graham that were so twisted and taken out of context that they made it sound like Graham was saying something exactly the opposite from what he was actually saying and from what he has said his entire life.

      He has always preached that Jesus is the only way and that personal/individual conversion is necessary.

  20. This news is certainly sad, yet joyful and interesting at he same time.

    I read another article this week that might interest you Gary. The title, "Want to live forever? You just have to make it to 2050." It's worth reading.


  21. Do some research (I've made it easy for you):-

  22. Billy passes away on 21 Feb. Today (22 Feb) is Adar 7 the day Moses died and also the day Rabbi Ben Samuel passed away 800 years ago. Joshua (Jesus) about to lead his people into the Promised Land. So close now, so close. Come Jesus!

    1. Yes, good find/discovery. Here is a supporting Bible study:

      From TimFoster405: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Fz12Z6h4p8

      Yarrow Sparrow, if you are Tim, thank you for your studies and narrative.

  23. Billy Graham has one judge. Nobody on this Earth has any right to accuse or point fingers at a man who was, by far, the greatest of all the preachers of our time and many others times. Starting as a 15 year old boy I cannot doubt his being with the lord as we speak. Pocket your pride pocket your acvusations. You may find yourself in court without a lawyer. God blessed Billy Graham. A pure heart can see his devotion to god. God bless you all!

  24. Our hope is built on nothing less than His blood and His Righteousness, for it is by the Eternal stamp of His Righteousness that we enter into fellowship with The Father, not ours... praise be to God for that. So no matter how many detours we may take, He Always brings us back to Himself, because we belong to Him. All of us have had our share of detours, there are no exceptions, even for the beloved Mr. Graham. I shutter to think of the ones I have had, and the ones I will continue to have. All paid for by the Grace of God, and drawn back to reality by the prompting of a gentle loving Holy Spirit... okay sometimes maybe with a Jacobs blessing, but resulting in a limp of faith.

    The intensity of the battle around us is escalating, because the enemy of our souls knows his time is short. The days are evil and hateful, and many days it is very hard for all of us to bear. Today for me is one of them, but I look forward to the day when that battle is over. When there is no more conflict within, and absolute truth and love is our daily existence. Until then we have each other to help keep ourselves accountable. I am thankful for that, and for places like this where we can speak our hearts. ...and hopefully still be able to hug one another in the end. Alas I tend to ramble, but I am really missing my family today, because I am very weary of the battle. I am thankful however that we won't have to endure it much longer. Love to You All... prayers being said for our strength, to continue to stand together, and run the race with endurance. Grace, Peace, and Protection my friends...

  25. I believe if anyone began sifting through my life and some of my comments they might have reason to suspect whether or not I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. However, I know any suspicions are simply not true. I have stumbled, like Peter, I have doubted like Thomas and I have railed like the prophets, but never has anyone including myself been able to remove me from my Father's hand. I trust not in what my flawed speaking my relate, I trust not in what someone's twisted interpretation of what I said might relate, I trust in the Bible and in Jesus Christ who redeemed me by His Precious Blood and in His own Word when He said, Father I have not lost even one. Billy Graham's last written message before his death spoke of leaving the path and the pain it causes. I attended one of his crusades after I was saved and my Spirit told me he was a Child of God. His Fruit speaks he was a child of God and that is how we are instructed to judge. God has already handled the rest of it. I am grateful I am so insignificant to the world that no one will ever feel the need to sift through my life looking for garbage that I intentionally or inadvertently spoke for I am sure they could find it. Nonetheless, I am His, I am Loved and I am going home when He is ready for me to do so and nothing anyone spews about me can change that. Blessings in the Mighty Name of Jesus who is able to hold us close to Him and keep us to the Day, whether we deserve it or not. He is my Righteousness for I have none of my own. Blessings in the Mighty Name of Jesus and I praise God for all His Saints, warts and all - Sherry

    1. Well said Sherry Griffin. I am nobody and completely unworthy but for the love of Jesus Christ.

    2. Grow in Grace and Sherry Griffin, such comforting and encouraging words! Looking at my Christian walk, I can relate!

      "I have stumbled, like Peter, I have doubted like Thomas and I have railed like the prophets, but never has anyone including myself been able to remove me from my Father's hand. ...I trust in the Bible and in Jesus Christ who redeemed me by His Precious Blood and in His own Word when He said, Father I have not lost even one."

      Amen! All the thanks forever to the precious Lord Jesus!

    3. Sherry, thank you for your wise words. None of us should judge another— “Judge not, lest ye be judged.” My father murdered my mother when I was 10 years old (I’m 60 now), yet I know he could still be in heaven if he confessed to our Father before his last breath. It’s a dangerous road to judge another— always justifying it by describing their fruit or lack thereof. We DO NOT KNOW another person’s heart. Period.

    4. Great words Grow in Grace and Sherry! It is as simple as the thief on the cross ... He believed and he was going to see Jesus in Paradise! Sometimes I think he had it good ... No future sins to be riddled by guilt over because of harsh words spoken or written (such as making comments) or by actions taken, or a habitual sin or apathy, or a lack of love. Or, sins of omission. Thank God for His mercy and grace that we have through believing in his Son. We have made the decision that is the most important one.

    5. Robyn, I appreciate your sharing some of your family history as painful as it was. Wow.
      The fruit subject confuses me. I believe we are to judge a person's sin in a church setting as to how Paul said they were tolerating sin in their midst. But, who does that today? We're to go to a person who offended us (not gossip about it) and seek reconciliation, and if not, go with two mature believers in the church as witnesses - but, what does this mean - and, who does that? And, what exactly is meant in this passage, anyway? As to fruit ... What does this mean? I can't barely look to see if I have any fruit, never mind looking at someone else to see if they have fruit. We are to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith, and to ask God to search us to see if there is any sin in us and so on. It makes me think of two monkeys where one is picking at the others scalp. I know it is some sort of grooming ritual but it seems icky to me. Isn't the wheat supposed to continue to grow with the rates so that the wheat isn't harmed. Was this to show us not to judge a person as to their salvation? Their fruit? Or, was this meant for only at the final harvest?

    6. Sorry, I typed 'rates' instead of 'tares'.

    7. Cathi, as for the “fruit” thing, like you, I am very careful judging anyone’s fruit, because I have enough to worry about with my own! I just lift up to our Father those I those that I’m worried about, and leave it to Him to convict them of their sin. You can’t go wrong with that!!!

    8. Cathi, as far as the "judging issue" is concerned, check out 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 what Christians are supposed to do according to the bible. Especially with ecumenical preachers of some "Catholic cross" like BG that ruin the church from within. Blessings to you!

      PS: https://youtu.be/Dz-5uGRgtmw just FYI, if BG would have had a true concern for the body of Christ he would have better judged himself about his unholy company.

  27. Billy Graham's crusades were evangelistic campaigns conducted by Billy Graham between 1947 and 2005. Billy Graham conducted 417 crusades in 185 countries and territories on six continents. And then I read Matthew 24:14 about the Gospel being preached all over the world and then the end shall come. I believe Mr. Graham's daughter about God keeping him alive until a certain time.

    1. Archangel, As noted on a recent Steve Fletcher YTC video, Drudge's headline basically said it all: "Billy Graham Dead: Spread Gospel AROUND WORLD". Steve was saying it sure sounded like Matt 24:14 to him and I couldn't agree more, especially in light of the other parallels being identified with Abraham & Noah and the symbolism surround the 99/100, etc. Maranatha!

    2. Y'all have to check out the latest articles from www.watchfortheday.org... only God can do that!



      We'll see Billy, and we'll get to meet with each other soon dear family...

    1. Thanks for the heads up! I just took care of it.

  30. News about deploying prototype fighte jets by Sussia in Syria. (it looks like they are building pressure)

    News just went out!!


  31. Good morning, these are pouring out.... much like the latter rain in the latter days:

    [includes multiple past prophecies re: BG's passing & great revival before...]

    From Bob Barber's ENDTIME DREAM & VISION YTC

    US Embassy in Jerusalem to open in May — in time for Israel’s 70th anniversary


    311 & Billy Graham Connected


  33. The 3rd Temple may be up by May 14 too with the Trump Station taking people to it.

  34. "On a personal note, I am, at once, saddened and joyful at the passing of our brother, Billy Graham. I believe he was the greatest influence for the Kingdom of God of our time. Truly, only eternity will reveal the impact he had on our world. His influence will always be felt, but his presence will be missed.

    I smile when I read what Billy once said. Echoing D.L Moody, one of his heroes, Billy said, "Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God."

    What encouragement for those of us who remain here. We, too, will soon change addresses. What a great day that will be.
    So long, Billy. See you soon.

  35. Archangel [Mr.HL],

    Thank you for mentioning/ remembering Purim above, it was an oversight. I'd like to propose Purim could hold more clues...there is some speculation it is actually tied to the "Last Great Day."

    Reply up above, but there is more in the Bible than we know, especially after connecting all there is to connect.


  36. NOTE!!! Billy Graham will lie in the Capitol on this Wednesday, the 28th of Feb which is...Purim.

    If Purim is really connected to the Last Great Day after all, would it be awesome for the Harpazo to happen while the world is watching (TV or some) and for some to be walking around BG's casket when the trumpet(s) sounds and the door flings open and zip zip zip....?!!! The world will see, with a blink of an eye, the Harpazo.

    No coincidence but rather a God incident BG will be in the Capitol THIS Purim...


    1. Charlie in DC, you're welcome and that would be awesome if the Rapture happened when the greatest preacher of the Gospel is in our Capitol on Purim.

  38. This is a quote from Breaking Israel News about Reverend Graham: "Ultimately, Graham’s burial on Friday, which is the day that Purim is celebrated in Jerusalem, could not be more timely. He envisioned the rebuilding of the Hebrew temple and Jerusalem, and Purim was the beginning of the process that led to the building of the Second Temple. Moreover, as the Purim story took place in the 70th year of Babylonian exile, Graham’s passing happens to occur not just before Purim but on the 70th year since Israel’s rebirth."

  39. RE: "Purim was the beginning of the process that led to the building of the Second Temple. Moreover, as the Purim story took place in the 70th year of Babylonian exile, Graham’s passing happens to occur not just before Purim but on the 70th year since Israel’s rebirth"

    This really makes me think a Third Temple is coming soon!

    That's interesting

  40. Gary you stated Billy fell asleep 153 days after Feast of Trumpets 2017.The Lord reminded me of John 21:11 there were 153 large fish,yet the net had't torn. Any thoughts?

    1. Yes, exactly! That was the connection I was trying to make (:

  41. A PIN-POINT:

    Dr Rev Billy Graham became the fourth American in history to lay in honor in the US Capitol. As his funeral is held today a 'Bomb Cyclone' forms over the Northeast US.


    ""Take this storm seriously!" the National Weather Service in Boston warned via Twitter. "This is a LIFE & DEATH situation for those living along the coast, especially those ocean-exposed shorelines.

    The storm -- with about 80 million people in its path, including more than 22 million people under a coastal flood warning -- officially "bombed out" late Friday morning when it underwent bombogenesis, signaled by an extreme drop in atmospheric pressure." (Quoting CNN)

  42. Family, for all the back and forth amongst us as we rise to defend the Gospel, odd as it may seem to many in the context of THIS man, I encourage you to watch his daughter eulogize at his funeral and declare that the Harpazo is AT HAND. To the LORD be the Glory, amen and amen, Maranatha! https://www.facebook.com/watchfortheday/videos/1710288665699980/

  43. The meat is too much it seems Gary. I leave you my best wishes. I shan't return here. The seed is wasted.

  44. Fox had a special hour long show on Billy Graham, with only two commercials. It was very good. The gospel of Jesus Christ was preached.

  45. With the passing of Stephen Hawking, today, there are some posts at the end of the Fig Blog which touch upon connections with Billy's passing. so, for those interested, go look there, too! Maranatha!
