You’ll see more spiritual victory with this secret weapon
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 5, 2018
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...

From Pastor’s Desk
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 1, 2018
Our society is pretty confused when it comes to the spiritual forces at play all around us.
You’ll see actors dressed up as demons and angels playing parts in movies and TV shows, but only as impossible fantasy creatures.
The Barna Group, a Christian polling firm that researches cultural trends in order to equip spiritual leaders, found that many people in the Church are just as unsure as the rest of society when it comes to spiritual forces.
Nearly 60% of professing Christians believe that Satan is only a symbol of evil, instead of a living being. What’s even more troubling is that 58% of Christians believe the Holy Spirit is also just a symbol and not a living entity.
As you’ve read in this newsletter, I wrote my book, Unseen, because it’s so important that we know there’s a war going on around us all the time. It’s even more vital that we feel equipped to participate in it.
Your support makes that happen. Your gifts today will help proclaim the Good News of the Gospel and equip more believers to fight back in this unseen war.
Thank you for your generosity. You are winning warriors to the fight!

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!”

Dr. Jack Graham Celebrates Life of Billy Graham

I’m always asked if I was related to Billy Graham. I am not, but he ‘adopted’ me into his family during his final crusade in Texas in 2002.
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...

Revelation: What it Means and Why it Matters
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 26, 2018
“Revelation: What it Means and Why it Matters”
When I began teaching on the Book of Revelation, the first question I wanted to answer was “why” — why study a book filled with incredible imagery and seemingly confusing prophecy. To answer, the “why,” we need to know what the Book means and why it matters.
