President Reacts To Passing of Rev. Billy Graham

Melania and I join millions of people around the world in mourning the passing of Billy Graham.  Our prayers are with his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and all who worked closely with Reverend Graham in his lifelong ministry.

Billy’s acceptance of Jesus Christ around his seventeenth birthday not only changed his life—it changed our country and the world.  He was one of the towering figures of the last 100 years—an American hero whose life and leadership truly earned him the title “God’s Ambassador.”

Billy’s unshakeable belief in the power of God’s word to transform hearts gave hope to all who listened to his simple message: “God loves you.”  He carried this message around the world through his crusades, bringing entire generations to faith in Jesus Christ.

In the wake of the September 11th attacks in 2001, America turned to Billy Graham at the National Cathedral, who told us, “God can be trusted, even when life seems at its darkest.”

Reverend Graham would be the first to say that he did not do it alone. Before her passing, his wife Ruth was by his side through it all—a true partner, a wonderful mother, and a fellow missionary soul.  He also built an international team and institution that will continue to carry on Christ’s message.

Melania and I were privileged to get to know Reverend Graham and his extraordinary family over the last several years, and we are deeply grateful for their love and support.

Billy Graham was truly one of a kind.  Christians and people of all faiths and backgrounds will miss him dearly. We are thinking of him today, finally at home in Heaven.

This comment is for our President Donald Trump. I have been receiving many requests for my support along with a contribution. I would like to explain the reason I can’t make a donation for any of your needs of the political reasons I am in construction and have been unemployed for the last 3 years.

Have you tried looking for something else? I don’t know how old you are but if in forties or less you should look at all options. If older then there are still more options. Don’t only look at what you know now.

My husband was a tractor driver for over 30 years when there was no more work as he had leveled all the farmers around here land for planting. He went to the school district and became a custodian at age 58 and was promoted to to the head custodian of a new school which then gave him day work again and the teachers and students loved him.

That is not His fault, If I were unemployed for one month, I would seriously be looking for something else to bring money in to live. If you haven’t worked for three years, shame on you!!

This is a wonderful statement coming from our Great President Trump and wife Melania.
Thank You President Trump, for millions of people around the world share in your words as well.
Gods work is and will be carried on through Reverend Grahams family as well as the rest of Gods true ministers who preach the truth of HIS HOLY WORD.
Although saddened by the his family’s loss, as well as ours, we have great comfort and joy knowing that Billy Graham has seen the Lord face to face and rests in the arms of our Almighty God.

Rev. Billy Graham was an inspiration for all of America’s presidents. During the early and mid-1960s when I was Richard Nixon’s principal foreign policy advisor, I could remain in his office whenever anyone called, but when Billy Graham called, as he often did, I had to leave. Billy Graham was probably the most important person in Richard Nixon’s life, despite the fact that Nixon, in my view, was a certifiable schizophrenic, combining both the best and the worst in human potential.

My wife and I are deeply saddened by the passing of this great and good Cristian warrior. His influence in society has been the glue that has held us together through the trials and tribulations of life. He has joined our father in heaven and in doing so, he has left us with the inspiring message “GOD LOVES US”. Rest in the loving arm of our Lord!

Thank you Mr. President. Rev. Graham was a wonderful, powerful and blessed man of God, we have followed him and his family for many decades. Our country is better for having Billy Graham preach and teach us all, I can’t imagine America without him, we are truly a nation blessed by God.

God has put his hand on President Trump and VP Pence. I wish I could talk to you personally, I have an important message to relay.

I had the extreme privilege of attending many Bully Graham crusades, and I was honored to be able to sing in his choir during several meetings in the 1950’s. Several of my family members and friends became Christians while attending his crusades. He is finally home with his Savior and his wife, Ruth. My prayers go out to his family.

One of the greatest preachers of all time. He filled huge auditoriums all over the world and he marched thousands down to the front of his meetings giving them the simple promise that if they would accept Jesus Christ with all their hearts they would be saved. However, John the Revelator said that every one would be judged out of the books according to their works, no exceptions: Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

I celebrate the passing of Rev. Billy Graham into Heaven. Like many other Christians in America we attended his Revivals and Services and watched him on television. He was a great man of faith in God and a wonderful preacher who always kept his sermons simple enough for everyone to understand God’s great love for us. He leaves such hope for our future.
