Billy Graham dies at age 99, the most influential Christian of the 20th Century

Billy Graham has died today at age 99 – Preacher to millions in massive football stadiums. Counselor of Presidents, Kings and Queens.

It would not be too much to say that he single-handedly averted the decline of the Christian Church in the West more than anyone else of his generation. But God also achieved amazing things through him in every continent of the World.

A life well lived.

A death infused with hope of spending an eternity with his LORD.

I’m sure the words that Billy would want us to hear today are these:

“Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.” (Billy Graham).

His death marks the end of an extraordinary era.  He was an outstanding Evangelist the like the world has never seen before or since, and perhaps never will see again.
