In anticipation of Billy Graham’s 99th birthday, Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, released the following statement about his father:

Nov. 7 will be a big milestone for my father as he turns 99 and enters his 100th year. As a family, we are just so very grateful that he is still with us. His mind is good but he’s quieter these days. He can’t see or hear well, but his health is stable.

“On his birthday, some family will be with him and we’ll give him his favorite cake—a lemon cake with lard icing. He loves those cakes—but it has to have the lard icing.

“At the Billy Graham Library we’ll have a special celebration that day, as this year is also the 10th anniversary of the opening of the library. We’ll have birthday cake for everyone who comes by.

“Also as my father enters his 100th year, for the year leading up to his 100th birthday, we are going to honor what God has done through him by highlighting significant moments of his life and some eight decades of ministry. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is moving strong into the future, but it’s also important to celebrate the past, so each month we will focus on a particular decade and highlight significant things like his 16-week evangelistic crusade in New York City, his impact on worldwide evangelism and personal testimonies of people whose lives were forever changed at one of my father’s crusades. During this next year we’ll have special content on billygraham.org and in Decision magazine, so be sure to check those out. My father always wants the focus to be on the Lord Jesus Christ, and not on him; and so we will point to the amazing ways God has worked in lives around the world, through the ministry of Billy Graham.

“I know my father is grateful for all the prayers for him and birthday wishes on this special occasion.”

It’s Now Illegal to Evangelize in Nepal – Veronica Neffinger

Nepal’s president recently signed into law a bill making evangelism and conversion to another religion a punishable offense in the country.

According to The Christian Post, Nepalese President Bidhya Devi Bhandari signed into law legislation that makes evangelism and religious conversion punishable by up to five years in prison.

Bhandari reportedly signed the legislation on Oct. 16. Nepalese lawmakers initially passed bills against evangelism and conversion back in August.

Religious leaders in Nepal have decried the new law and said it is a step backwards for religious freedom.

“We are deeply saddened that this bill is now law,” said Pastor Tanka Subedi, the founding member and chair of Dharmik Chautari Nepal and Religious Liberty Forum Nepal. “Our appeals to the president and other policy makers to amend this have been ignored. Nepali government have taken a regressive step as this law severely restricts our freedom of expression and our freedom of religion or belief.”

According to The Christian Post, Vujicic recently held an event in Ukraine and afterward posted a message on Facebook about its abundant success:

“The biggest event that our team at Life Without Limbs has seen and maybe the largest event ever in Europe – 800,000 people in the streets of Kyiv Ukraine! Thank you God,” he posted.

“400,000 repented of their sins and began their spiritual journey with Jesus – Now LWL celebrates the witness of 1 million decisions to walk with and trust God in everything face to face,” he added.

Vujicic also shared that he was in Russia for part of his European evangelism tour. “In Russia for 40 hours. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to meet the President this trip but we continue to plant seeds of love and hope across this country until some unique doors open to share – thank you for your support!”

Jimmy D Psalmist Shares New Single “Great And Terrible” Alongside Lyrics To Mark Birthday 

Dynamic praise and worship leader, Jimmy D Psalmist releases new single “Great and Terrible” to mark his birthday today. The song is off his recently released album, MIGHTY MAN OF WAR.

Speaking about the song he says, “The reason why folks are afraid and are being molested by the devil is because of the lack of knowledge/revelation of the personality and capacity of our GOD. 

 “A child of an Army General can never and will never be afraid of a bully. I’ll like to remind you that you are the child of the MASTER of the UNIVERSE, the OWNER of the WHOLE WORLD. All power belongs to Him, so why are you afraid of the devil that is supposed to be under your feet? 

 “Allow me to tell you a little about your God in this song. If “Mighty Man of War” got you on your feet or made you soar like an eagle then get ready because this song “Great and Terrible” will embolden your inward man. 

 “Meanwhile, a full dose of “Mighty Man of War” album will take you to another dimension in God. Enjoy the presence of God.” 

“Great and Terrible” was produced By Ebenezer Iriemi.

LYRICS 

Great & Terrible by Jimmy D Psalmist

You’re sitteth in heaven and make the earth your footstool 

Yet you live in me 2x

The river of life with fire in your eyes

What a wonder you are 2x

You built the earth and roofed it with the heavens

No pillar no walls 2x

You speak in thunder and clothed with yards of fire

How terrible you are 2x

 

Ewo ewo

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign

 

Eleh eleh

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign

 

Iyammi o iyammi o

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign 

 

Chimoo chimoo

Great and terrible God 

Yes you reign

 

My God you reign, you reign

Great and Terrible God 

Yes you reign

 

Yes you reign, yes you reign

Great and Terrible God

Yes you reign

 

I’m not afraid, not afraid 

Great and terrible God

Yes you reign.
