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.

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

Q    Dr. Graham, I’m so afraid of Satan! How can I overcome this fear?

A    Remember that Satan is a defeated foe. He has no right or authority in your life when you’re a follower of Christ. You’ll still have skirmishes and struggles because life is a battleground. But that battle is a good thing. It means you’re alive in Christ. It means you’ve raised the rancor of the enemy. You don’t need to be afraid of Satan, because you already have victory over him. But you do need to be aware of him and continue fighting against him.

Q    I feel trapped in sin. What can I do?

A    When you’re trapped in ongoing sin that you can’t seem to throw off, you need to ask God to renew your mind by tearing down the strongholds that have occupied your mind. The way you renew your mind is by the teaching and training that take place when you open God’s Word and the Word begins to cleanse you and sanctify you. His Word will develop new ways of thinking in your life and set you free in Christ.

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

Dear Friend,

I hope your mind has been opened to the realities beyond what you can see in front of you!

I know it’s tempting to simply live for what is here and now – money, comfort, family, career. But if you live without an awareness of the invisible spiritual realm, you’re really getting only half the picture of what life is all about.

When you open your mind to the unseen realities, you can break free from mental strongholds, renew your mind in Christ, engage more effectively in spiritual warfare, and much more.

You can live every day recognizing that while the here and now matters, eternity matters far more.

That’s a message that so many people around the world need to hear – and I’m grateful for your support, which is spreading Gospel truth far and wide through our broadcast ministry.

Your gift today has the power to show people there is so much more to life – because Jesus has achieved victory for us all!

’Til the whole world hears,

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!

A brief word on the 75th Anniversary of D-Day
By PowerPoint Ministries | June 6, 2019

Today we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Allied Invasion of Normandy, commonly called D-Day. It was the largest seaborne invasion in history, and allowed the Allies to get a toehold in Nazi-occupied France.  The success of that operation would be the catalyst for the eventual defeat of the Nazis, the liberation of the concentration camps, and the end of World War 2 in Europe.
 
The size and scope of the invasion was astounding. 156,000 allied troops landed on the beaches or parachuted just behind the Nazis fortifications. 195,700 naval personnel manned 6,939 vessels that were in the armada that transported the troops to the beaches or launched barrages on the fixed Nazi positions.  And 11,590 aircraft flew 14,674 sorties of reconnaissance, bombing, and close air support.
 
We celebrate this day for the victory over the demonic evil that was Nazism and also to remember those who sacrificed everything for us.
 
The D-Day casualty figures were truly horrific. The US forces alone suffered 2,499 killed in action, 3,184 seriously wounded, and 1,928 missing in action.
 
The Invasion of Northern France was a colossal, historical undertaking combining the world’s greatest military minds; the industrial production of the US and the UK; the creativity and genius of military engineers, logisticians, spies, medics, and planners; and the coordination of all branches of service on land, sea, and air for 12 different Allied countries.
 
We celebrate the invasion’s success, and honor the high cost that was paid for that success.  However, that success was very nearly a defeat.  For, D-Day, like all battles, was filled with poor planning, misjudgments, human error, and well-intentioned mistakes.
 
The assault involved meticulous planning, state of the art technology, and...

Memorial Day
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 27, 2019

For many in America, Memorial Day marks the start of summer—three months of sun-drenched days, warm evenings, barbecues in the backyard, and vacations at the beach.

But largely lost in all that is the true meaning of Memorial Day—the willingness of men and women to answer the nation’s call, knowing the risks they face, willing to give their lives to protect and defend the country they love.

What an extraordinarily selfless thing to do! Jesus spoke of such a sacrifice in John 15:12–13: “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life for his friends.”

Following the Civil War, in remembrance of those they had lost, people from both the North and South decorated graves with flags and flowers on what came to be known as “Decoration Day.”

We call it Memorial Day now, to remember all of the men and women lost in all the wars this country has fought—nearly 1.2 million people. Their sacrifices have guaranteed the religious and civil freedoms that we enjoy, but in today’s culture, often take for granted. 

Recently I had the opportunity to visit the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, commonly called the Iwo Jima Memorial, in Washington D.C.  I was reminded once again of the sacrifices made by “a few good men.” The fight for that small island in the Pacific caused 26,000 American casualties, including 6,800 who were killed.

It’s hard to fathom what those brave Marines had to hold onto in the darkest moments of battle if they didn’t have their brothers at their side. We are no different. The battles are different, for sure, but...
