What I Read Today;
1 Corinthians 11; Matthew 27; Ezekiel 13; Psalm 148; 2 Samuel 13
Ezekiel was faced with a problem. Numerous prophets were claiming that they were receiving messages from God. These messages that they were proclaiming were not from God. Instead, they were telling the people what they wanted to hear. They were doing this to gain followers.
Early on, in the ministry of Billy Graham, he was faced with a dilemma. Many of the people he was working with were latching on to new theologies. They were turning from many of the biblical teachings that had been handed down for centuries. Recent “scholarship” was infiltrating Christianity.
What did he do? Billy Graham chose to remain faithful to the scripture. The famous words he spoke in nearly every sermon he gave were, “The Bible Says..”
The rest, as they say, is history. Billy Graham died, as the most successful evangelist of modern times. He was revered by many. He was a simple preacher, whose message that Jesus Christ would save us from our sins, never changed.
Our job is to proclaim the Word of God.
