We Honor and Remember
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 10, 2017
Ninety-nine years ago, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, in a forest in France, Germany surrendered to the Allied nations to end the most horrific war to that point in human history. They called it the Great War—the War to End All Wars. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. Two decades later, World War II was upon us.
How you can break free from fear and anxiety
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 5, 2017
All of us face fear at times. So it’s important to learn how to master it, before fear robs you of your happiness and your health… and holds you back from becoming all that you were born to be.
People have dealt with fear throughout history. Noah faced fear of what others thought of him. Moses felt fearful about his inadequacies. Abraham, Esther, Gideon, Daniel, and Mary the mother of our Lord – each had fearful things to overcome.
And you can overcome your fear too!
God is calling you to do something great in His name; but if you’re afraid, you could miss it. Remember, He doesn’t always call the equipped, but He always equips the called.
If God calls you to do something, He’ll provide for your every need. So don’t be afraid to do what He’s called you to do!
Fear has been described as a small trickle of doubt that flows through the mind, until it wears such a great channel that all your thoughts drain into it. Tiny fears can build up day by day, until we find ourselves paralyzed, unable to perform.
Maybe you get a bad doctor’s report… you lose your job… or your kids rebel and you’re afraid they’ll never come to the Lord. Before you know it, doubt, fear, and anxiety creep in, and you start focusing on your fears rather than living in faith.
But you can break free of fears like these, because Jesus said in John 8:32, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Today, stop focusing on your circumstances and instead consider your God, no matter how difficult, dramatic, or deadly your fears may...

But your message today hit home, and I came back to Jesus! With His help, I want to be what He wants me to be. Thank you for loving the Lord and being His voice for this world.” – Joyce
From Pastor’s Desk

For some people, the upcoming holiday season brings a fear of being alone, a fear of family tensions, a fear of financial pressure, and other anxieties.
If that’s the case you for you, remember that God’s Word whispers to our anxious hearts repeatedly, “Fear not.”
Break free from fear by filling your mind with God’s truth. Don’t live by what you feel; live by what you know – that God is in control of your life. Romans 8:28 says,
“We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose” (emphasis mine).
That’s the truth that everybody needs to hear. And it’s why I’m so grateful for your response to His call to share His Word with people worldwide through PowerPoint.
It’s also why I’d love to send you The Best of 2017 CD set as my thanks for your gift today to help close the $750,000 funding gap before December 31 – so we can reach people for Christ together in the new year.
So thank you for giving generously to share the truth of God’s Word with others on TV, the radio, and online. And whatever fears you’re facing today, remember: God is for you… God is in you… and God is with you.

You’re called to be a hero!
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 4, 2017
I’m sure you know the stories of the great heroes of the faith. We have so much to learn as we look in wonder at all they achieved for the Lord. But we must beware. As we look back at these spiritual heroes, we mustn’t put them on pedestals. And we certainly mustn’t think they were in some higher “super saint” league.
Power up your life with new joy and energy
By Jack Graham | September 4, 2017
So many Christians today waste their energy on trying too hard.
They try hard to be strong and vibrant for the Lord. And yet, many are dragged down by stress. Many feel tired and empty, and they are just running on fumes.
You can go to church on Sunday and get so full and excited singing wonderful praise songs, thinking, Lord, my life’s going to be different! But when you wake up on Monday morning, you think, Dear God, what happened? Did I backslide in my sleep? How could I feel so lifted up yesterday – and now so dead and dull?
Maybe you’re wondering the same thing today: Where is the reality of my relationship with Jesus?
As a believer, you have the Spirit of the Living God living within you – ready to give you all the joy and energy you need. He wants to help you live a powered up, fruitful, and fulfilled life.
That’s why Ephesians 5:18 tells us, “be filled with the Spirit.” The way to plug into that Holy Spirit power is to make the daily decision to pray and yield to His wise direction.
When I call my own shots, I’m depending on me. But when I pray, I begin living in dependence on God. So pray about everything – your needs, your decisions, and the people you’re going to meet. Soon you’ll find that rather than struggling to get by, you’ll be walking with new strength and energy in the Spirit-filled life God wants for you.
The help you need is right beside you!
By | September 2, 2017
Every single person wants to make the best decisions he or she can. And if you’re a believer in Christ, then you don’t have to make those decisions alone. But how does God lead us in life’s big decisions?
Perhaps you recall the wonderful story in Acts, when the Lord told Philip to leave Jerusalem and go south to the desert road. As he followed the Lord’s command, he came across a chariot carrying an Ethiopian eunuch who looked puzzled:
“And the Spirit said to Philip, ‘Go over and join this chariot.’ So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ And he said, ‘How can I, unless someone guides me?’ And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.” (Acts 8:29-31)
So one way God leads you is by speaking through an inner voice… just as He spoke to Philip. This kind of direction isn’t a gut feeling or intuition. This is the work and the witness of the Spirit of God in your life.
We see this ministry of the Spirit clearly described in Romans 8:14,
“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.”
So, if you’re a child of God, the Spirit is leading you!
When you read in John 14:26 how Jesus promised the disciples that He would send the Holy Spirit as our “Helper,” that word in the original Greek manuscript is paraklete.
This special word describes the Spirit as “one who is called alongside.” So the Spirit is walking with you, leading you into God’s plans for your life, and guiding you through the important choices...
