How to have victory over the devil in 2019!
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 31, 2018

There is a famous painting I’ve seen, done by an artist named Moritz Retzsch, of a chess match between the devil and a young man. In the painting of the chess game, the devil appears to have the young man in a checkmate. So, the young man is sweating profusely and trying to figure out if he can move.

You ARE somebody!
By Dr. Jack Graham | December 26, 2018

Sin is a serious subject with God. And the Bible has a lot of straight talk about sin, its consequences, and the damaging affect that it has on our souls. But the Scripture also tells us that because of the cross, you and I are forgiven!

May you be blessed by the miracle of Christmas
By PowerPoint Ministries | December 24, 2018

Take a moment to be encouraged by Dr. Graham’s Christmas message to you:

We’re so grateful for how God has worked through you and your generosity to share His great gift – Jesus Christ – with more people worldwide this year.

Jesus came to be the Savior of the whole world. He was the expectation, hope, and fulfillment of a great promise: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel”  (Isaiah 7:14).

He truly is “Immanuel” – God with us. What a miracle that is!

May you be filled with the joy of His presence today and always.

And from all of us at PowerPoint Ministries, Merry Christmas!

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year – except not for everybody.

There are many people whose Christmas wish is probably for this year to be erased from their memories.

I think of the parents in Parkland, Florida, and Santa Fe, Texas, who will be having their first Christmas without a son or daughter who was killed at one of this year’s tragic mass shootings.

Or the victims of the fires in California, who might not even have a home to spend the holiday.

Or those who have lost relatives to the epidemic of drug overdoses or those who are spending Christmas day in a hospital room, at the bedside of a loved one.

And the list goes on.

For these people – and perhaps for you and me as well – the best present this season is not the newest Apple device or fine jewelry. All we want is some hope.

Human beings have always yearned for a reason to hope, to believe things will get better. In other words, we want to hear good news. This was true even 2,000 years ago.

Around the turn of the era, there was a lot of talk about universal peace, a so-called Pax Romana, that would bring order and prosperity to a world which had long been embroiled in chaos and warfare.
