When it comes to preaching the Word of God, most modern examples include Reverend Billy Graham. He has been preaching to stadiums around the world for years, and has been actively involved in the ministry for almost a century. At nearly 97 years old, he still has an active mind, and has written what many consider will be his last book with Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond. Reverend Billy Graham’s son, Franklin Graham has had a lot to say about updates of his father on social media and the Today Show.
One of the most recent news of Billy Graham was a post from his son, Franklin Graham, on Facebook according to WSPA.
“I went to visit my father Billy Graham yesterday, and it was good to be able to sit and watch some football together. At almost 97 years old he can’t see or hear well anymore, but I’m really thankful he is still with us,” said Franklin. “His new book is released this week, and I will be in New York doing some interviews about it. It is titled Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond. Every person needs to know that eternity is real, and where you spend it will be the most important decision you will ever make. I know he would appreciate your prayers that this book would touch the lives of many.”
Franklin Graham came to New York and appeared on the Today show talking with Kathie Lee and Hoda about how Billy Graham started the book around his 95th birthday, but then fell very ill. Franklin said that Billy was “better now than he has been in years”.
Billy Graham knows that he is on the “doorsteps of eternity”, and his new book will talk about what Heaven and Hell will be, as the Bible describes. Franklin talked a lot about the “two paths” of heaven and hell that are the same as the choices offered in the Garden of Eden, and delivered a subtle yet clear message about the redemption of Jesus Christ on television.
Billy Graham’s most recent book could be his last, and according to WRAL, Reverend Franklin Graham says that his father doesn’t have the energy to take on any more projects. What is amazing is that in spite of not being able to see or hear well, Billy Graham has a clear mind and keeps up with world events.
So what is Reverend Billy Graham’s book about? Amazon has the book up now, and states “while his earthly vision dims, the glory of heaven is illuminated as Billy Graham, the beloved evangelist, shares from his past, and his present, the reality of eternity”.
It should be very interesting to see what Billy Graham has to say about eternity as someone who has lived a life preaching the gospel. When asked “where is heaven?” Billy Graham replies “Heaven is where Jesus Christ is, and I’m going to Him soon”.
