Stephanie Martin from Plano, Texas, holds her heart while singing outside the Billy Graham New York Crusade at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in New York last weekend.
NEW YORK ā Rachel Jun is jumping and squealing with all the excitement of a teenager at an open-air rock concert.
But though there's music blaring, and though the stage a few hundred feet in front of her is decked with high-tech lights, two jumbo video screens, and bands with electric guitars and handsome singers, Ms. Jun is most excited, she says, to see the Rev. Billy Graham.
"I read about him in textbooks, about how he was a great evangelist, and how this was probably, like, the last time he was going to preach," says Ms. Jun, a high school senior from Long Island. "So I was so eager to go and see him - so eager to see him speak from the heart."
At least 60,000 others came on Friday night to see Mr. Graham here in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in the borough of Queens, participating in what most believe will be the final crusade of his six-decade career. The three-day revival this past...
I have to ask, did people act like this when George Whitefield preached to the great crowds? How did people respond when J. Edwards preach "sinners in the hands of an angry God?" The rock-music-drunk masses in our day mistake the "power" in rock music with what is thought to be God's presence, when in reality it is an indulgence in that which is from the power of darkness. How deceived can people become when the scriptures are abondonded.. and instead,are doing that which pleases the flesh? Billy Graham has for a long time advanced the ecumenical movement, and refuses to expose error, by PROMOTING error..ie the Roman Catholic church and all it's unbiblical teachings. He has done this by including people from the RC on his platform! He met with the POPE as if having a nice little CHAT! What a DENIAL of the faith! B. Graham certainly does NOT join the ranks of men like Calvin, Knox and Spurgeon who faithfully preached the truth of the gospel, and at the same time, had NOTHING to do with the RC apostacy from the gospel. This generation desperately needs to know what is going on spiritually in our day, and why our SEPARATION from the ecumenical movement is a God-given biblical command for us to OBEY and not to IGNORE as so many are doing today.
24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, [he is] in the secret chambers; believe [it] not.
24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
