By Dr. Jack Graham | July 23, 2019

The Sixth Commandment isn’t one that a lot of people think they need to pay much attention to these days. But when we dig a little deeper into what those four words really mean and imply, we see that they do apply to each and every one of us!

It’s all about grace
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 22, 2019

Joshua was not a wicked man. This was the best religion had to offer… the high priest! And yet, as Joshua stood in the presence of God, he was viewed as wearing filthy clothes. He needed God’s forgiveness just as much as you and me.

How to honor dishonorable parents
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 17, 2019

When it comes to honoring our parents, people often ask me, “What does honoring my parents look like if they don’t deserve honor? What if they abused me? What does honoring my parents look like when my mom and dad weren’t an example of godly parenting?”

What it takes to have a successful family
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 16, 2019

As a parent, nothing can happen through you until it first happens in you. That’s why today’s verse says that God’s Word and ways must be in your heart before you can teach God’s Word and his ways to your children.

Are you being unfaithful to God?
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 11, 2019

A lot of people misinterpret the Scripture when it says that God is a jealous God. Because we tend to think of jealousy as an ugly thing. But jealousy can actually be a very beautiful thing.

Have you become your own idol?
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 10, 2019

Some who read today’s verses might think, “This passage doesn’t really apply to me that much because I don’t have other gods. I don’t worship idols. I’m not in some cult or some false religion. I believe in God.”

Why did God give us commandments?
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 9, 2019

We live in a world today that’s been captured by the theory of relativism, the theory or idea that says you can’t firmly or finally say what is right or wrong. So the very idea of a rule or a “commandment” flies in the face of what most people in our world today believe.

Taking a step of faith

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...

Happy Fourth of July
By Dr. Jack Graham | July 4, 2019

A couple years ago I had a speaking engagement in Philadelphia and made a point of slipping downtown to Independence Hall to reflect on the founding of our nation. It’s an amazing experience and I recommend it.

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

Q    Dr. Graham, do I have a guardian angel?

A    Angels are overseeing your comings and goings every day, at every hour, in every situation you face. You can’t go through a single experience without God’s unseen heavenly host watching over you. So, do you have a guardian angel? Yes! You have an entire army of them, ever-present and ready to serve.

Psalm 91:11-12 tells us, “For [God] will command his angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.”

Q    What can we be certain about when it comes to angels?

A    There are three things you can take to the bank regarding angelic guardianship. For those who’ve placed their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, angelic protection is available, beneficial, and constant. Angels are “sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation” (Hebrews 1:14).

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!

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

Dear Friend,

I hope you’re encouraged as you discover more about how God uses angels in your life.

Just as a road sign points us toward our desired destination, angels are there at every turn, responding to the will of God to faithfully point our feet toward Christ. Their counsel carries weight. Their direction can be trusted. Their protection has our best interests at heart.

Angels aren’t just fascinating; they’re utterly functional in putting God’s will into action. And the same angelic presence and protection that enveloped Jesus at all points in His earthly journey remains in service to you today!

I’d love to share more with you on this intriguing subject, so please request your copy of my book, Angels. It’s my thank-you for your donation today to help continue broadcasting the Gospel on television, radio, and online.

Thank you again for the vital role you play in proclaiming truth and pointing people toward Christ. May God use you to lead many more souls to Jesus!

’Til the whole world hears,
