Anne Graham Lotz: Billy Graham’s Death -Church Going to Promise Land!

The Bible teaches that all followers of Jesus are to plan and prepare for a “trip.” The trip is not only undertaken when we move to Heaven following death, but it is also a very unique one that will take place at the end of human history as we have known it. We are told that believers in the last generation will not experience physical death, but will be caught up in what is called the “rapture”… the “snatching away”… to meet Jesus in the air and be reunited with loved ones who have died in Christ and have gone before us. It will be the trip of a lifetime—a trip that is out of this world. Are you ready? Read John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58.

Anne Graham Lotz explains that the timing of her dad’s death [Billy Graham] points to the Church Going to the Promised Land [The Rapture!]

Anne is on fire for the Lord! WOW!!!

SALVATION PRAYER

Father God, I recognize that I am sinner in need of forgiveness. I ask that you would cover my sins now with the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. I ask that Jesus would come into my life now. I surrender my life to Jesus and acknowledge that He is now Lord of my life. I ask that you would guide me into your perfect will and plan for my life from this day forward. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen

Salvation is free, but it was not cheap. And choosing to follow Jesus is simple, but it is not easy. And anyone who claims otherwise is a liar.

IF I DIE TODAY WILL I GO TO HEAVEN?

WHY WOULD ANYONE PUT OFF THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION THEY COULD EVER MAKE IN THEIR LIVES, CONCERNING ETERNAL LIFE?

FOR IT IS BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED, THROUGH FAITH — AND THIS NOT FROM YOURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD — NOT BY WORKS, SO THAT NO ONE CAN BOAST. – EPHESIANS 2:8-9

THE APOSTLE PAUL TELLS US WHAT THE GOSPEL IS:

“MOREOVER, BRETHREN, I DECLARE TO YOU THE GOSPEL WHICH I PREACHED TO YOU, WHICH ALSO YOU RECEIVED AND IN WHICH YOU STAND, BY WHICH ALSO YOU ARE SAVED, IF YOU HOLD FAST THAT WORD WHICH I PREACHED TO YOU—UNLESS YOU BELIEVED IN VAIN. FOR I DELIVERED TO YOU FIRST OF ALL THAT WHICH I ALSO RECEIVED: THAT CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES, AND THAT HE WAS BURIED, AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES – 1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-4

Irreducible Elements of the Gospel

The gospel is the great nonnegotiable of Christian truth. We aren’t allowed to add to, subtract from, embellish, or rejigger the sacred message of how sinful men can be reconciled to a holy God.

That’s why the apostle Paul reserved his sternest warning for anyone who would dare to mess with the message: “If any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed” (Galatians 1:9).

The preacher is left with one option when it comes to faithful gospel proclamation—and it’s not an elusive option reserved for scholars. Paul expected his audience to be able to clearly differentiate between the one true gospel and all the other pretenders. It is an expectation implicitly placed upon all believers. With that in mind, we recently asked John MacArthur to identify and explain the essential truths of saving faith—the irreducible elements of the gospel.

Our destinies hinge on the unshakable nature of those truths. Any variation in just one of them and the hope of eternal life completely collapses.  

If you present a different god than the God of Scripture, you are effectively calling people to idolatry. If you preach another Christ you do not have the Lord; you have a liar or a lunatic. If salvation by grace through faith alone is corrupted with even the smallest amount of works-righteousness, “Christ will be of no benefit to you” (Galatians 5:2). If we don’t repent from our former sinful ways, we will perish (Luke 13:3,5).
