What’s your true value as a woman?
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 4, 2018

Everywhere you turn, the world has a message for the women of today. Social media, fashion magazines, TV, billboards, and movies all use different words and images to communicate the same message:

If you’re truly a modern woman, if you’re really a successful woman, you must strive for physical perfection, professional success, and independence.

And if you’re a mother who’s investing time in caring for your kids, the world tries to make you believe you’re settling for less. But many women who’ve put everything aside to be professionally successful can find themselves at the top of the corporate ladder alone, desiring more, and looking for meaning in their lives.

In contrast to what the world tells women today, the Bible has the true message: God has elevated the position of womanhood and given every woman a place of honor and respect in the Christian home.

In Proverbs, God gives us a model of true womanhood for every woman, married or single.

The woman described in Proverbs 31 is a woman of inestimable value: “An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels” (v. 10). A godly Christian woman is a precious treasure.

What makes you valuable as a woman? It’s your godliness and virtue. When you’re a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled woman committed to following Jesus Christ, you’ll be the godly woman God desires you to be.

In contrast to the world’s view that your value is based upon your outward beauty, independence, and professional success, God says your value is based upon the ageless inner beauty of your Christlike character.

No one is more charming, more beautiful, than a woman who glows with the glory and the presence of...

“I listen to Power Point daily. I honestly don't know what I would do without it. [Your] Bible-based teachings are such a blessing to me.

“My father lives with me and my husband, and has been housebound after a recent illness. Since he can't make it to church yet, we have been listening to Pastor Graham's CDs and on TV. This has really been uplifting for my father... being able to still hear God's Word. Thank you so much. I do not know you personally, but I consider you part of my family.

From Dr. Graham's Desk
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 1, 2018

Dear Friend,

I’m sure you’ve seen the argument raging in the media about gender equality. And it’s leading men and women into competition with each other. Unfortunately, that doesn’t help anyone.

The missing ingredient in all this shouting is a simple biblical truth.

And that is: When God created man and woman, He created us with different responsibilities, roles, temperaments, and personalities – to complement, not compete with, one another.

The Bible says that when God saw the loneliness and incompleteness of man by himself, He said in essence, Adam, I'm going to create a helper for you. So He put Adam to sleep and created woman.

What was the result? When Adam woke and saw Eve for the first time, his response was pretty much, This is it! You did it right, God!

And friend, when God made you, He did it right. Whether woman or man, you are a valuable treasure.

Thank you for your ongoing support to share powerful biblical truth like that with many others worldwide who need to hear of God’s love for them!

’Til the whole world hears,

Are you ready for heaven?
By Dr. Jack Graham | April 5, 2018

You may know this story about a pastor teaching a bunch of kids at a Vacation Bible School. He asks, “How many of you want to go to heaven?”

Everyone’s hands shot up, apart from one small boy in the front row. “Son, don’t you want to go to heaven when you die?”

“Oh! When you die? I thought you were getting up a group to go right now!”

Maybe you’re a bit like this little boy. Heaven seems like a good prospect for the future, but you wouldn’t want to go right now...

Of course, it’s natural to want to hang around on earth as long as you can. I’m guessing there are loved ones you don’t want to leave. Maybe you still have lots of things to tick off your bucket list!

And yet, we must be ready.

This life is all we know – but we must remember it’s not all there is! Scripture makes it plain that as believers “our citizenship is in heaven” (Philippians 3:20). And so we’re told to “set your minds on things that are above” (Colossians 3:2).

The Bible is packed with truths to help us live in the here and now in light of our eternal hope. One of my favorites is when Jesus refers to heaven as His “Father’s house” (John 14:2). He wants us to know it’s a place of ultimate belonging, complete security, total acceptance, and unrelenting love.

Friend, lift your eyes to heaven and be ready for “what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9)!

After America was attacked on September 11, 2001, many people were inspired to sign up to serve their country. Nearly 3.2 million people have entered military service since the attack. I don’t think this happened because our country suddenly became more patriotic. But we were suddenly, and violently, made aware of a group of radicals who wanted us dead. 

As Christians, it can be all too easy to go about our daily lives without ever thinking about how we’re at war with dark spiritual forces that we can’t always see. But Paul warns us not to be complacent, saying “keep alert with all perseverance” (Ephesians 6:18).

How can you play your part and persevere in this spiritual war?

Your secret weapon is prayer. Prayer might not feel particularly aggressive or militant, but it’s by prayer – warfare prayer – alone that you and I are able to engage with and overcome the enemy of our souls.

Think of it this way – warfare prayer is a discipline, an attack aimed at the forces of darkness around us.

To engage in warfare prayer is to ask for God’s help to get on His plan, not to ask Him for help with yours. Warfare prayer is full of gratitude, worshiping God for the love He lavishes on us daily.

Warfare prayer is also hard work. Paul doesn’t give us any leeway for time off. He tells us, once again in Ephesians 6:18, to be “praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.”

As Christians, we know how prayer changes our lives and attitudes. But if you haven’t yet thought of prayer as a powerful weapon, let me encourage you:  our world needs...

Join Dr. Graham on the trip of a lifetime to Israel
By PowerPoint Ministries | March 1, 2018

You’re invited to join Dr. Graham and his wife Deb as they lead a 10-day trip to some of the most incredible places in Israel from December 26, 2018 to January 4, 2019.

Dr. Graham says, “Deb and I have been traveling to Israel for more than 35 years, and I’ll always remember how overwhelming it was to see it for the first time. Everything you’ve read in the Bible comes to life. The opportunity to walk where Jesus walked is an experience like no other.

“This trip is a time of highly intensive spiritual impact, as you’re truly in the most important place on earth. It’s high-definition Christianity, a front-row seat to the Bible.

“This visit to Israel is an opportunity for you to grow as a Christian, because when you’re there with us, it isn’t just seeing the sights and the ancient relics. We do see those, but we’re worshipping and teaching God’s Word at every site we visit – like the Sea of Galilee, Calvary and the empty tomb.

“I love taking people to Israel. As a pastor, I know it will positively influence their faith. I see marriages restored. I see people coming to Christ.

“We’d love for you to join us on this trip. I’m already counting down the days!”

While we wait
By Dr. Jack Graham | February 3, 2018

It can be difficult to remember the security of our eternity when we’re facing the ugly realities of a sinful and fallen world. We’re seeing the foundations of our nation’s spiritual heritage broken down and threatened. We’re feeling the pains the world felt during the 400 years of silence without the guiding voice of God. How are we to cope?

Well, first of all, we’re not to dismay. Remember the overwhelming and soul-penetrating joy that was brought to earth at the birth of Christ! Recall what the angel told the frightened shepherds that very night: “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people” (Luke 2:10).

God did not leave us. Jesus is Immanuel, “God with us,” and the Word has made it clear that He is coming back again (Hebrews 9:28). The world is aching for Christ, and we have an ordained duty to bring His love and truth to those around us while we wait for His triumphant return.

Even when the world seems to be falling apart, we have a steadfast and unshakable foundation in our victorious God. And when He comes again, heaven and earth will be reconciled in a beautiful and holy display of the power of our Creator.

So rejoice! We have a Savior who is victorious over the grave and wasn’t contained by the tomb. While we await His return, let us remind others of this Gospel, this Good News. Live with faith, conviction, and courage even in the fire. All around us, people are broken by their sin and beaten down by their lives, and they need a loving Christian to tell them about the One who died and rose and is...
