How you can be at the top of your game
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 3, 2019

My passion for baseball began when I was three years old. My dad placed a glove on one of my tiny hands, and a ball in the other, and the deal was sealed: I’d love the game all my days.

I’m sad to say that my days in the diamond are done, but I still love watching others play, especially those who are at the top of their game. 

Of course, as in all sports, the players who excel are those who are best prepared. The ones who win the pennant are those who have persevered through setbacks, injuries, and losses – determining that no matter what, they are going to get that prize.

It’s the same in the Christian life. And if you want to be at the top of your game as a follower of Jesus, then you have to have the same mind-set as an elite athlete.

As the apostle Paul writes:

“One thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14)

Friend, you and I must develop spiritual muscle so that we’re actively and fully engaged in the race we’re running – and the battles we’re fighting!

I’d love to help you do that by showing you how to fix your eyes on the unseen realities of the spiritual realm – both in the here and now and in the life to come. My book Unseen will do just that, and it’s my way of thanking you for your gift this month. I pray it will help you rise to the top of your game...

Q & A with Dr. Graham
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 1, 2019

Q    How do I tell when I’m under spiritual attack?

A    There’s one sure way to discern when you’re under spiritual attack – and that’s by knowing your opponent! 

Throughout Scripture, we are given many descriptions of Satan, which clearly show that his desire is for lovers of God to detach their allegiance from God and attach it to him instead – so prepare for battle! “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

Q    I often find myself wrestling with doubt. How do I defeat it?

A    Difficult times raise difficult questions and often bring forth a season of doubting. When my father was brutally murdered many years ago, I was left with lots of troubling questions. Why him? Why now? Why this tragedy for a family who loves the Lord?

When doubts like these assail you, you must remember that the primary objective of Satan is to persuade you that you can’t trust God. That’s when you need to fight back with promises and truths of Scripture, so that with the Psalmist you can cry out to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust”  (Psalm 91:2).

From Dr. Graham's Desk
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 1, 2019

Dear Friend,

Centuries ago, before the printing press had been invented, Bibles were scarce. If you wanted to carry around the truths of God’s Word, you had to do the painstaking work of committing passages to memory.

Today, availability is not our issue. The average North American family possesses nine copies of the Bible. You’d think this would be to our advantage… but sadly the opposite is true.

The bitter irony is that because of the abundant access we have, countless believers have slackened off when it comes to writing God’s Word on their hearts – leaving so many dangerously vulnerable to Satan’s attacks.

That’s why I’m so thankful for you – because through your generous support, you’re bringing the power and promise of God’s Word to the hearts of people all over the world through PowerPoint’s global broadcasts on the radio, on TV, and online.

And thanks to a generous Matching Grant that’s just been offered, your gift this month will be DOUBLED so that even more believers around the world will gain strength, gain maturity, and gain ground in the fight of faith. From my heart, thank you.

’Til the whole world hears,

Your life is more than you can see
By Dr. Jack Graham | September 3, 2019

How much of what you believe is based on what you can see?

I know I’m often convinced of something only after I see proof with my own eyes.

But there’s so much more to life than just what you can see. While many people focus only on what’s visible, there’s an invisible realm that’s just as real and just as active as the physical world you see!

We need to be very aware of what we can’t see, or else we risk being vulnerable to evil forces.

The Bible tells us that Satan desires to take the mind captive. He wants to control your thought life, to create doubt and confusion, and to lead you away from God.

You need to be aware of these forces, not ignore them just because you can’t see them. But awareness alone isn’t enough. You can’t overcome the power of the devil by education. You need something stronger!

You need to resist Satan by the power and authority of Jesus.

When you do this in Jesus’ name, giving Jesus His rightful place of authority and control of your mind and behaviors, the footsteps that you hear fleeing won’t be yours. James 4:7 tells us the devil himself “will flee” from the presence of a believer who submits to the Lord Jesus Christ! And you’ll see that “in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).

There’s so much more to life than what meets the eye. And when you open your mind to be aware of this, you realize just how much you need to rely on the Lord.

You can find out more in my...

Why powerful angels leave this one thing to you
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 5, 2019

There’s one scene in the book of Acts that’s always fascinated me because it showcases both the power and the limitations of angels.

One night as the apostles sat on a cold prison floor, an angel swung open the door to the jail and “brought them out” (Acts 5:19). The angel told them, “Go and stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this Life” (v. 20).

Angels are so powerful they can burst through man-made barriers with no effort whatsoever. It’s like the walls of that prison were made of butter, not brick. In other biblical accounts, they rolled back a heavy stone (Matthew 28:2); removed thick chains (Acts 12:7); and even closed the mouths of lions (Daniel 6:22).

Angels are mighty spirit beings who command attention. They’re not cuddly cherubs, but glorious creations called to worship and war in the power of Almighty God. But it’s important to note that despite all their astonishing attributes, not everything is theirs to do.

There’s at least one critical thing angels cannot and will not do, which is witness to the saving grace of Jesus in their own lives.

Angels testify to the glory and creation of God, but God has called you and me to bear witness to the grace of God. The angel commanded the apostles to go do what he couldn’t do – speak “all the words of this Life.”

We’ve been given something angels have never experienced – the forgiveness of our sins. At the cross, the angels stood amazed by the love God demonstrated for sinful people through Jesus’ death. Angels can only admire what God has done in saving us and giving eternal life to all...

Your support is changing lives like Emma’s
By PowerPoint Ministries | July 1, 2019

You’ll be encouraged by this testimony from a listener named “Emma” whom you helped lift up at just the right moment. She wrote…

“I was having a rough morning. [I’ve] been praying for my daughter; she’s a teenager and really struggling. I turned on the radio, and you said, ‘God hears the prayers of a faithful mother’ [and that] the Bible says, ‘He rewards those who seek him’ [Hebrews 11:6].

“I cried all the way down the road. … You encouraged me and gave me the strength and hope I needed that day from God’s Word. The Lord is using you to reach people for Jesus Christ. I am so thankful for your ministry. Please don’t ever give up; you never know who is listening.”

Thank you for helping strengthen this mother, and many others, with God’s Word!

Like you, Dr. Graham wants to impact our nation and the world with the Good News of Jesus. That’s one reason why PowerPoint partners with you and local churches across America to share the Gospel and raise up the next generation of pastors as well.

Recently, Dr. Graham had the opportunity to visit Pittsburgh and preach at the wonderful new Vintage Church in that city. One of his main goals was to instruct and train pastors from across the nation on how to preach and lead with boldness. He also shared his heart with listeners in the Pittsburgh area on Word 101.5 FM.

Your support makes a difference as you help impact our nation with God’s truth!
