Unto the Hills – December 31, 2013

As the Christian surveys the world scene, he is aware that we do not worship an absentee God.  He is aware that God is in the shadows of history and that He has a plan.  No matter how foreboding the future, the Christian knows the end of the story of history.  We are heading toward a glorious climax.

For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.

Psalm 119:89

Unto the Hills – December 30, 2013

Think of a place where there will be no sin, no sorrow, no quarrels, no misunderstandings, no hurt feelings, no pain, no sickness, no death.  That is heaven!

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 21:4

Billy Graham – Unto the Hills

Unto the Hills – December 29, 2013

There is One who is more powerful than Satan!  This One defeated him 2,000 years ago on the cross.  Satan suffered his greatest defeat at the cross, and in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years…[where he] will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Revelation 20:2,10 NIV

Unto the Hills – December 28, 2013

As we approach the end of the age, the head of Satan is being battered and bruised as the forces of God gain momentum.  Under the command of God, Michael, the archangel, is organizing his forces for the last battle Armageddon.  The last picture in the Bible is of heaven.

And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him.

Revelation 22:3

Billy Graham – Unto the Hills

Unto the Hills – December 27, 2013

We Christians need to rely constantly on the Holy Spirit.  It is important that we stand aside and let Him take over in all our choices and decisions.

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.

Ephesians 3:16,17 NIV

Billy Graham – Unto the Hills

Unto the Hills – December 26, 2013

Though you live to be seventy, eighty, or ninety years old, that is but a snap of the finger compared to eternity.  We have only a few brief years at the most.  Let’s live them for the Lord.

Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Revelation 2:10

Billy Graham – Unto the Hills

Unto the Hills – December 25, 2013

On that first Christmas night in Bethlehem, “God was manifest in the flesh” (1 Timothy 3:16).  This manifestation was in the person of Jesus Christ.  If you want to know what God is like, then take a long look at Jesus Christ.

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow.

Philippians 2:9,10
