Rev Billy Graham close to death

I do not think I am being hubristic when I say that Billy Graham will go down in History as one of, if not the greatest evangelist the church has ever known. His ministry has reached millions of people world wide and the fruit of this will be felt for many, many generations. I am declaring this post to be the one and only post on this blog where nothing but positive comments will be accepted. Billy will be with the Lord very soon, and we thank God for his life, his testimony and his witness.

The Rev. Billy Graham is near death, and it won’t be much longer before he succumbs to old age and goes “home to be with the Lord,” his grandson, said this week.

“I wish [God] would give him strength, but I don’t think he needs strength anymore,” Mr. Graham said, to the Christian news site, Assist News Service. “It’s time to go home.”

Mr. Graham, who’s spread the gospel around the world — and to the highest political offices in the nation — just turned 95 on Nov. 7, celebrating with a North Carolina party that included more than 1,000 notable guests, Newsmax reported. He’s been ill for years, fighting off Parkinson’s disease, pneumonia, prostate cancer and pulmonary problems, and has also been plagued by issues from his broken hips.

Now, “old age has caught up to him and is sucking the life out of him,” said Will Graham, who is also the son of Franklin Graham. Just this week, Franklin Graham appealed to the world to pray for his father, saying in an online post at, that “our family would appreciate your prayers for him that the Lord would strengthen him.”

Meanwhile, grandson Will said God’s protected his grandfather throughout the years, giving him “supernatural strength and now, the only thing left is for him to come home. God has removed his hand of protection and old age has set in,” Newsmax reported.

  1. Only positive comments allowed???

    Easy for me. Love the guy!
    Hard thing is putting into words how much I respect him.

  2. Great man of God. So many older people I’ve met say they were saved under his ministry that you can only conclude that his influence was immense in his prime.
